Ingredients and Quality
Pedigree is one of the most commonly accepted processed food available for your dogs. The major ingredients of Pedigree are as follows:
- Ground Whole Grain Corn
- Meat and bone meal
- Corn gluten meal
- Animal fat
- Soybean meal
- Dried plain beet pulp
- Ground whole grain wheat
- Natural flavour
- chicken by-product meal

Pedigree mainly uses the by-products of meat. It means, your dog is fed with the animal refuse that cannot be used for its meat. It can be anything including their blood, hoof, horn, hide trimming or stomach parts. Therefore, the quality of the meat that finally reaches your dogs is compromised.
Another major ingredient of Pedigree is Corn or Soybean. These plant-based nutrients are difficult for your dogs to be absorbed, especially when they are processed.
Pedigree also comes with added preservatives, colours and dyes which can harm your dogs.
Poonch presents a variety of recipes for your pups to relish. Our ingredients are simple and fresh. We use natural ingredients and raw materials, that you can rely upon. The meat we use is 100% organic, free of ammonia and antibiotics.
Poonch food is prepared to keep your dogs healthy. Therefore, we do not add any artificial ingredients to it. Moreover, the chicken that is used is of human-grade quality and not its by-products. We also make use of the organs like gizzard and liver to enhance your dog’s health.
A variety of farm-fresh vegetables are gently cooked along with superfoods like chia seeds, kelp, flaxseed etc to preserve all its nutrient values. Prepared in a clean and human-grade FSSAI kitchen, Poonch food contains just the right amount of minerals and nutrients that your dog needs.
Fresh food is especially recommended for your dogs as they reduce the chances of your dogs being affected by diseases like cancer.
Customised Feeding Plan
Pedigree provides wet and dry food varieties for dogs. Every dog requires a certain amount of food which consists of the right amount of minerals and proteins. This depends on their age, size etc. Pedigree, that is mass-produced, does not offer any customised options for your dogs. You can open the pack and serve it to your dogs directly in approximate quantities. Even though they mention the feeding guidelines, it is very difficult to strictly follow it.
As said, according to your dog’s breed, size, activity level etc, it is important to follow the feeding guidelines for them. Insufficient or excess feeding can lead to many irreversible illnesses in your dog. That is why Poonch follows personalised feeding guidelines, particularly for your dogs.
According to your dog’s requirements, food is prepared in appropriate quantities for your dogs. These are then equally distributed in separate packets according to each serving. This is how Poonch ensures that your dog gets the right amount of food every time. We also provide customised ingredients options for dogs that suffer from allergies to particular food items.
