Nutrience Care® Oral Health is a cat food designed to promote good dental and oral health for your cat. The Oral Health kibble is formulated using Denta Crunch™ technology: an oversized kibble, made with a unique blend of insoluble fibers, designed to encourage your cat to chew thoroughly. This mechanical action will help clean your cat’s teeth, maintain good oral hygiene, and fight plaque and tartar build-up. In addition to caring for your cat’s special needs, Nutrience has taken great strides to ensure your cat’s care is delivered in the form of a high-quality, gluten-free kibble, made of healthy, wholesome ingredients.
All ingredients in this formula are chosen with Care. Most dental formulas on the market use cellulose as a source of insoluble fiber. Cellulose is a by-product of the pulp and paper industry; wood chips are chemically digested to obtain cellulose present in the plant’s cell wall. Nutrience uses a natural grass called Miscanthus. Miscanthus grass is a sustainably farmed plant that is purposefully harvested for its insoluble fiber. Miscanthus grass is simply sun-dried and ground before being added to the food.
