The VOM series is a Norwegian produced raw food. The raw materials used in the food come exclusively from Norwegian abattoirs which are approved and inspected as suppliers of meat for human consumption.
Only using Norwegian raw materials is one of our absolute requirements, because Norwegian cattle carry little disease. Norwegian livestock production requirements are very strict both with respect to animal welfare and animal health. This ensures that the products you purchase are safe.
Our foods only consist of animal products. The VOM series is made from slaughter by-products, i.e. the parts of the animal which are left after fillets and chops have been cut out. The increase in the wealth of Norway has meant that the parts of animals which were served on the dinner table just a few decades ago are today found in pet food bowls. Offal such as rumen, liver, lung and kidney are particularly nutritional and where combined with meat and fat off-cuts, represents a first class raw material from cattle, horses, lamb and pig.
The raw materials we use in production are: chicken, mixed offal from cattle and horse, lamb and pig, cattle and horse rumen, salmon, beef liver and egg. All mixes from Vom og Hundemat include vitamin and mineral additives to ensure your dog’s daily needs are met. We also supply dog food made of, for example, elk, reindeer and turkey, availability being dependent on season and access to raw materials.
We purchase chicken by-products such as skin, wing tips, throat, meat off-cuts, bone, liver, heart and gizzard. Meat rich bone is rich in nutrients and is found in all mixes that contain chicken. You will find small bones and gristle pieces in the food. These do not represent a health risk for your dog and are an important fat, protein and mineral source. Proteins in chicken also have the very best amino acid compositions. Chicken therefore forms the basis of most mixes.
Eggs are the only animal ingredients that are cooked. Egg provides a very good source of essential amino acids. Egg is more easily absorbed when cooked.
The salmon we use is of course from Norwegian fish farms. We use the middle cut salmon filet, head and trace. The high omega-3 content of salmon provides your dog with the essential DHA and EPA fatty acids. Salmon also contains astaxanthin, which is a very powerful antioxidant.
None of our products contain colouring or flavour additives. They are not heat treated, do not contain preservatives or added water.
