Canine Caviar’s Alkalinity comes from herbs and ingredients, not minerals. Too many alkaline minerals can cause crystals in the urine.
The difficulty in making an alkaline diet is in the processing. During processing of any kind, the blood, intestines and spinal fluids are exposed to oxygen. With this exposure, oxidation occurs and the alkaline properties become very acidic. It is not possible to maintain the alkalinity by creating a frozen diet or by freeze-drying.
Canine Caviar uses herbs and ingredients along with our unique processing procedure to create an alkaline diet. This method ensures that the herbs are time released into the stomach to produce the desired urine alkalinity of 7.1 to 7.4. This is the best way to make a true alkaline diet for our pets. Another option to create alkalinity is by using minerals, but this method creates urinary crystals in your dog.
I think we have all heard of or seen where a dog’s urine was burning and killing grass. This happens when the pet’s urine is too acidic. While a pet is being fed Canine Caviar, this will not happen. Our diets are carefully formulated to change the pH to 7.1 to 7.4. This is optimum for maintaining proper cellular regeneration and reducing anaerobic activity (aging).
We provide pH test strips to allow you to see the change in your pets’ pH from acid to slightly alkaline. If the urine alkalinity remains 7.1 to 7.4, your pets blood, intestines and spinal fluid will also maintain a pH range of 7.1 to 7.4; minimizing cellular degeneration reducing anaerobic activity (aging).
