Nutrition for the welfare of the pets

Our main purpose is to ensure the health and welfare of animals. A healthy, balanced and quality nutrition is the fundamental basis for it.

 

 

A QUALITY DIET STARTS WITH THE INGREDIENTS
Dogs and cats need a diet rich in protein for the proper development and maintenance of muscles, the skeletal system, skin and hair.
Cotecnica uses poultry (chicken, turkey, etc...) and lamb meats which are recognized as providing the highest quality protein, more digestible and with better appetite appeal:

Higher nutritional quality proteins.They are proteins of high biological value as it contains all essential amino acids, necessary for proper development and functioning of the body of dogs and cats.

More digestible proteins.After the egg proteins, these are the more digestible for dogs and cats. The body assimilates a higher percentage of nutrients generating less waste and therefore reducing the volume of feces.

More appetizing proteins.Poultry and lamb meats are the most appetizing, constituting the diet that gives the animal the naturally preferred taste.


THE IMPORTANCE OF FRESH MEAT

Industrial processes of heat treatment of the ingredients in general and in particular of meats are the main causes of the loss of protein quality and the reduction in the presence of essential amino acids. In each thermical process, the meat proteins lose some of their original nutritional value and its appreciated organoleptic quality.
So as to ensure that the health of dogs and cats can benefit from the proteins that poultry and lamb meats provide to their diet it is essential that the incorporated fresh meats have not undergone any type of pre-industrial process.

Cotecnica, the FRESH MEAT SPECIALIST

Incorporating fresh meat we assure that the highest biological value of its proteins arrives intact to the animal. And not least, the animal also enjoy a more natural, appetizing and tasty diet.

 

OUR TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESS
In order to preserve the original nutritional values of the high quality ingredients we use, our technology allows the direct incorporation of fresh meat at high rates just before the final food extrusion.

The cooking and extrusion is performed at a controlled temperature to ensure that heat-sensitive nutrients are not damaged, retaining all its original qualities.

Essential nutrients more sensitive to heat are added at the end of the process, so ensuring their presence and stability once ingested by the animal.

Also, our technology determines the exact point of cooking so that carbohydrates can be fully processed by the animal's digestive enzymes, thus avoiding risks of allergies and digestive problems and decreasing the size of the stool.
