Since cats are 100% carnivorous animals, the amount of meat in the diet of these animals is especially important. Meat in products for dogs is also very important, because it is proteins of animal origin that are necessary for animals to build strong muscles. The technology used in formulations of OptiMeal products allows to include fresh meat in the products and at the same time preserve its useful properties. High content of selected chicken, turkey, duck, salmon, lamb, rabbit and veal will provide the animal with a high-quality digestible protein of animal origin. Some OptiMeal diets contain up to 95% of animal protein in their composition.
The entire range of OptiMeal products contains a special complex for healthy skin and shiny wool. This complex includes unsaturated fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6, zinc and biotin. Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids improve the regeneration of the skin, reduce the risk of allergic reactions, reduce the risk of skin inflammation and reduce hair loss. The main reserves of zinc are found in the cellular structures of the skin, wool, muscles and bone tissue. Also, zinc has strong anti-inflammatory properties.

Is there less meat in the cat food than in the dog food? Or did I misunderstand something
Here it is difficult to generalize. The content of meat ingredients varies in both products. In dog foods, from 27% to 57%, in cat foods: from 29% to 53%.
The content of meat ingredients in each recipe is calculated taking into account many aspects: dietology, legislation, quality, extrusion, feeding, added value as information off-pack, eating and straining.
I'm very confused by the presence of preservatives... the food does not spoil for weeks…
In the formulations Optimeal uses an antioxidant of natural origin on the basis of rosemary. That is why the shelf life of dry food has decreased from 18 months to 12 months.
