Why is TROVET only available through the veterinarian?

A balanced food makes a healthy and vital pet. Unfortunately as a result of an illness or disease, pets may need special food, a so called dietary food. To determine which TROVET (dietary) food is best suited for your pet, a good diagnosis is needed. Your veterinarian is, because of his knowledge and skills, the designated person to diagnose an illness. Based on the diagnosis your veterinarian can prescribe the suitable dietary food. A good diagnosis is fundamental for the right choice of the most suitable TROVET product for your pet. That is why TROVET products are only available at [...]

My pet is allergic to chicken. Is it harmful when my pet consumes food that contains chicken fat?

No. This is a common misconception. An allergy is always caused by the protein fraction of the product. Pure fats and oils are allergen-free and thus unable to cause an allergic reaction. The fat and oil sources in our pet food are carefully purified, resulting in a protein free ingredient.

Why are potato and rice hypoallergenic carbohydrate sources?

Gluten is present in grains that are commonly used as a carbohydrate source in foods. Wheat and corn are gluten containing grains and are the main carbohydrate sources in a wide array of products (e.g. macaroni and spaghetti). Some animals are intolerant to gluten and should therefore be fed gluten-free food. Potatoes and rice belong to the hypoallergenic carbohydrate sources, because gluten are absent in these foodstuffs.

Why a hypoallergenic diet through the veterinarian and through the pet store?

In some cases claims of 'hypoallergenic' foods on packages are misleading. The producers of the food claim the food to be hypoallergenic, but when you read the ingredients listed on the bag, this is not always the case. Sometimes multiple protein sources are mentioned, in contrary to just one. The definition of a hypoallergenic food is a diet when the diet minimizes the risk of a hypersensitivity reaction. The greater the number of protein sources, the greater the chance of an allergic reaction.

Can I give a treat to my pet with diabetes?

Insulin allows for the uptake of glucose into cells. High blood sugar can occur in patients with diabetes, because the pancreas does not release enough insulin. Giving treats to diabetes patients causes fluctuations in blood sugar levels and should be prevented. This is the reason why giving treats to patients with diabetes is discouraged. Though, not every animal is the same. Some patients remain stable when regularly given a treat. Always consult your veterinarian before giving treats to a diabetes patient.

I want to offer my pet multiple foods, can this do any harm?

In principle is there no need for animals to switch between foods and protein sources (= flavours). Some animals can get bored with their food. In these, uncommon, cases it is needed to switch. Diets for dogs and cats are complete. Cats and dogs use less senses to judge their food, contrary to humans. Humans judge food, next to scent and taste, also on colour and texture. For dogs, and especially for cats, mainly the scent is of importance and in lesser degree the texture. That is why colourful food is not important. Changing of foods can upset your pet's [...]

Is it normal that the colour of the same diet can differ in different orders?

It is possible that the colour of the food is different from previous orders of the same product. TROVET does not use dyes, which means that the colour of the food is dependent on the colour of the raw materials. The colour of these raw materials may slightly vary per supply/supplier and affect the food’s colour of each separate batch.
