There is ample scientific evidence that proper nutrition and correct eating habits can enhance health, performance and longevity. We are starting to understand that the over-processing and chemical additives which add color and texture can destroy much of the nutritional value of both people food and pet food.
Today, the choice of a nutritionally superior food for pets should be based on an informed understanding and appreciation of ingredient quality and product formulation.
The high quality Chicken Meal provides Taurine, an essential amino acid for cats, at much higher levels than the poultry by-products used in most cat foods. It is important for eyes, heart, nervous and reproductive systems.
The human grade Fat Source has no Ethoxyquin. It is naturally preserved with Vitamin E. Fats provide energy and include essentials for cell structure, hormones, enzymes and fat soluble vitamins. FLINT RIVER RANCH guarantees not less than 20% crude fat.
There is little doubt that F.U.S. is directly related to the cat's life style and diet. Low Ash and Magnesium are important in the prevention of F.U.S. FLINT RIVER RANCH Feline Formula has less than 5.5% ash content and Magnesium of 0.095%. This promotes low urinary PH and helps prevent F.U.S.

Cat and Kitten Feeding
Cats are finicky eaters. Tests show that besides flavor and aroma, texture and shape are very important in determining cat food palatability. Cats first smell their food; if it passes this test, shape then becomes important because it determines the way it feels and breaks apart in the cat's mouth.
The price of cat food, like other products, most often depends on the grade and quality. Flint River Ranch cat food will actually be cheaper to feed than other foods costing less. You will be able to see the difference in your cat's healthy skin, coat and energy level. Healthy nutrition can also mean less medical bills. They believe your cat deserves the best possible food and health.
Fresh water should be available at all times as your cat will drink more water when fed dry food. Super Premium foods should be introduced by mixing with your cats regular dry food with increasing amounts over several days.
Young kittens may be started on Flint River Ranch by mixing with a little warm water. Feed food dry as soon as the kittens teeth are strong enough to chew hard food (8 to 10 weeks). Feed kittens about 3 times a day - after 6 months twice a day.
Adult cats (1 year) can be fed once or twice a day. This depends upon what keeps your cat happy. Your cat should be looking for food when the next meal is due. Teach them to eat at meal times. The amount your cat eats in 15- 20 minutes is about the amount they should be fed at that meal. Adjust the food as you notice increase or decrease in the animal's weight.
Information About Ingredients
PROTEIN: The amino acids provided by the Chicken and Lamb Meal are the basic building blocks of muscle, skin, coat, bone, blood and the immune system. The most important ingredient in a cat's diet is protein. We guarantee protein analysis of not less than 32%.
CHICKEN MEAL - The chicken we use is strictly human quality chicken flesh and edible skin, the same as you would serve your family. Our chicken meal, and other meat ingredients, do not contain ANY by-products such as feet, heads, beaks, feathers, hides, hoofs, intestines, as are commonly found in many so-called "quality" pet foods.
BEET PULP - Beet pulp (after the sugar has been extracted) is by far the best source of fiber for companion animals. It does a much better, and safer, job of moving the nutrients through the digestive system and assisting in stool formation. Compare this with the peanut hulls, cottonseed, corn cobs, citrus pulp, noxious weeds, straw and other fillers often used in other pet foods.
WHEAT BASE - Wheat is far easier to digest than corn or soybean. Utilizing a combination of various grains, such as ground wheat, wheat flour, wheat germ meal and ground rice, is much healthier than simply a single type of grain.
PRESERVATIVES - Food spoils without some form of temperature control or the use of preservatives. Chemical preservatives are NOT acceptable at Flint River Ranch. We use, instead, only natural Vitamin E in a fat-soluble compound known as Tocopherol, which works just fine as a preservative for up to twelve months ("peak" preservation for up to six months). Vitamin E is also an anti-oxidant that retards the oxidation of other vitamins in our food. If necessary, our food may be frozen to preserve freshness
The Chicken and Lamb Meal formula is manufactured under carefully controlled conditions and temperatures - resulting in better nutrition, palatability and digestibility for your pet. The secret to good nutrition is not how many nutrients are present in a cat's food, but rather, how available they are and how efficiently they can be utilized when digested. High digestibility means your pet requires less food and produces smaller, firmer stools and less clean-up.
Our Chicken Meal and other meat sources do not contain poultry by-products or other by-products like chicken feet, chicken heads, duck beaks, feathers, hides, hoofs and intestines. The use of low quality products and chemical preservatives may be associated with dry skin, allergic reactions, dental disease, poor health and degenerative organ dysfunction.
Beet pulp is by far the best source of fiber. It does a better job of moving the nutrients through the digestive systems and acts as a calming base for forming the stool in the colon. Vitamins, minerals and nutrients are first digested in the stomach - then absorbed into the blood through the intestinal walls. If those walls are covered with slime/mucus - absorption of these life-sustaining nutrients is reduced. Beet pulp gently massages intestinal walls, removing the mucus and aids in the bowel movement.
