ZIGNATURE® FAQs

Unlike many commercially available pet foods, which contain large amounts of simple carbohydrates as their first or second ingredient, Zignature recipes follow our limited ingredient, meat-first philosophy. Meat, poultry or fish is always the main ingredient. And we only use low glycemic carbohydrates such as chickpeas, peas, oats, millet or quinoa that also provide needed fiber. All of the Zignature formulas are made with wholesome ingredients, providing only the best for your four legged friend.

All Zignature recipes are based on a meat-first philosophy because dogs are carnivores first, and require high-quality animal, poultry or fish protein to thrive. The first listed ingredient in any pet food is vitally important because there’s more of that ingredient than any other. Not only is red meat, poultry or fish the first ingredient in all our recipes, but we also include specifically named red meat, poultry or fish type of meal as the second ingredient. Compare this to many well-known pet foods that use cheap, high-starch carbohydrate fillers as their first or second ingredient, and you’ll quickly see why Zignature offers your pet the correct nutrition for enhanced vitality.

To help make it easier for your pet’s system to acclimate, start by introducing a small amount of Zignature®. Increase it daily while decreasing the previous food by the same amount.
