Solid Gold is one of the top brands of pet food. All of their formulas, except Holistique Blend, which is used for weight loss, older dogs, or dogs with extreme allergies, utilize meat as the main ingredient. The meat is all guaranteed to come from healthy sources, unlike other companies that use products such as animal digest. Many dogs have food allergies, and the fact that Solid Gold doesn't use common allergens such as corn, wheat, or soy, makes certain that their extensive line of foods are beneficial for all dogs. Solid Gold also uses only healthy fats in their foods, such as canola and flax seed oil. Other companies food usually contains chicken fat, which is unhealthy and oftentimes goes rancid in the package.
Sun Dancer is a gluten-free formula of dry dog food that uses chicken as its main protein source. Chicken and chicken meal are the first two ingredients. Chicken is an easily digestible, lean protein, making this food a great maintenance food for active dogs, but also perfect for dogs with digestion and weight issues.
Chicken provides the trace mineral selenium which is essential for the production of glutathione, a powerful cancer-fighting and immune-boosting enzyme.It also contains niacin, a B vitamin that has cancer-preventative properties and also helps protect DNA from cell damage. The high levels of Vitamin B6 helps regulate blood sugar by helping the body process carbohydrates.
Sun Dancer utilizes three exciting ingredients that are new to pet health and nutrition: tapioca, chia seed, and fructooligosaccharide (FOS). Tapioca is a gluten-free source of starch made from the root vegetable sometimes known as cassava. As a starch, it supplies energy, and is also easily digestible and low in sodium and saturated fat.
Chia seed is often used as a supplement for humans. It is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and is also full of vitamins, minerals, and protein. The seeds consist of 34% omega-3 oil, 25% fiber, and 20% protein. It is also high in water-soluble dietary fiber, a supplement commonly added to pets' diets for its health benefits. Chia seeds also contain antioxidants, vitamins and calcium. Once ingested, they provide energy, helps stabilize blood sugar, and can also help lessen the risk of cardiovascular disease and aid in weight loss.
FOS is a prebiotic, a food that nourishes the good bacteria in the digestive system. Because it increases the amount of beneficial bacteria in the lower intestine, it improves the absorption and digestion of nutrients. It also aids in detoxification and elimination processes, and supports the immune system. FOS can also help to relieve gastrointestinal disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome and lactose intolerance, and reduce their symptoms.
At 30%, Sun Dancer has a moderate fat and protein content. It was formulated to fill the gap between Solid Gold's maintenance foods, such as Hund-n-Flocken and Wolf King and Barking at the Moon, which has a very high protein content. Palatability and digestibility studies have been conducted and have shown Sun Dancer to be highly palatable and one of the most digestible foods in the Solid Gold line and in comparison against other foods.
