Welcome Pet Parents and Lovers!

We’re delighted to extend a warm paw-shake to fellow pet enthusiasts like you. If you’ve found your way here, it’s no coincidence – you’re on the brink of discovering something truly remarkable – the many benefits of plasma-based ingredients for pet foods, treats and supplements. Incorporating plasma into your pet’s diet is not just about enhancing their nutrition; it’s part of an integrative and holistic approach to whole-body health and nutrition.

Our mission is simple: to elevate the health and well-being of our beloved pets through the power of plasma.

How do we achieve this? Well, it all starts with meticulously selecting and processing premium animal-derived plasma proteins. Through our specialized methods, we convert this exceptional fraction into a powdered form, which finds its way into numerous pet food products. We’re passionate about discussing the many benefits plasma offers our furry friends, so let’s talk a bit about plasma.

What is plasma?

Plasma is a protein-rich ingredient naturally found in all meat. Plasma contains not only protein, but also essential amino acids, and bioactive functional proteins. These nutrients play a vital role in supporting pet health, including gut function, muscle development and the overall immune system.

What are the benefits of plasma for my pet?

Feeding Dog and Cat

Plasma is rich in high-quality proteins, essential amino acids, and other nutrients. Not only is it an excellent source of nutrition, plasma supports overall pet health and well-being. It does this through functional proteins that support gut health, immunity, muscle development and allows pets to better utilize nutrients. As a bonus, pets love the taste of plasma! 

Is plasma sourced ethically and sustainably for pet food production?

extruded treats and pet foods

Reputable pet food manufacturers prioritize ethical sourcing and sustainable practices. They ensure that the plasma used in their products comes from reliable and humane sources, meeting industry standards for quality and safety. Plasma is a highly sustainable ingredient and has a low carbon footprint.

How can I ensure that the pet food I choose contains high-quality plasma?

Look for reputable pet food brands that prioritize transparency in their ingredient sourcing and manufacturing processes. Reading product labels, consulting with veterinarians, and choosing well-established brands can help ensure the quality and safety of the plasma in your pet’s food.

WHY HAVEN’T I heard of plasma in pet food before?

Plasma has been used in pet foods for more than thirty years, but most people didn’t know to look for it in their pet food ingredients. There are more than 600 published journal articles that show the power of plasma and the positive impact it has on the overall well-being of animals. In fact, 8,000,000 animals are positively impacted daily, around the world, through the nutrition and health benefits provided by plasma.
