Safeguarding pet health by providing superior nutritional standards
A healthy pet starts with a healthy diet. Research has confirmed that HP 300 contributes to a healthy diet when included in pet food formulations. In fact, inclusion of HP 300 in pet diets elevates the positive impact of high-quality diets on pet health.
A series of research experiments were carried out at the University of Illinois, Division of Nutritional Sciences, USA to assess the impact of including HP 300 in pet diets.
Dogs were given the choice between kibble with 0% HP 300 and 12% HP 300. The 12% HP 300 diet increased the average consumption of kibble and was the preferred choice among the dogs in the study (Figure 1).

Total tract digestibility
Apparent total tract digestibility was determined for varying rates of HP 300 inclusion. Replacing 4-8% of poultry by-product with HP 300 was shown to have an increase in total tract digestibility.

Fecal output and consistency
Fecal output and consistency were monitored with increasing inclusion levels of HP 300. Fecal scores indicate that consistency of feces was maintained with all inclusion levels.
