Pulses

Pulses are legumes. Horizon is a leader in the use of peas and red lentils as the grain free, low glycemic index carbohydrate source. Saskatchewan is a world leader in the prevalence of pulse crops and Horizon benefits from being situated in the heart of the pulse growing community and sourcing directly from growers we know.

A selection of fruits including apples, blueberries and pineapple add a boost of anti-oxidant, vitamin and immune boosting supplementation.

Vegetables

Vitamins and Minerals

Inclusive of key vitamins like B12, A, C, D and Biotin and minerals like zinc, copper, iron and manganese provide a full spectrum source of immune system builders and essential supplementation for overall health and well being

Whole Grains

In our Complete brand, we use whole barley, rye and oats that is always GMO free. Like humans, your pet benefits from eating unprocessed grains that have not been refined stripping away the bran and germ giving far less nutrients for the same carbohydrate levels. Whole grains are more quickly broken down and digested (up to 20% more) and for dogs that have 1/3 the digestive system, that is vital to absorbing the maximum amount of energy in every serving. One more thing....barley, rye and oats are all low glycemic index grains offering the same GI benefits of conventional grain free formulas while offering excellent dietary fiber.

Low Temperature Cooking

Most conventional pet foods are 'fast cooked' normally at temperatures of 400 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. It speeds up the process but certainly damages key nutrients through the process. Low and slow is always better for preserving the benefits inherently in raw ingredients. At Horizon, we cook at roughly 210 degrees and its a choice we make to attain a higher standard and better food.

About Winter

Canada is known for it. Cold winters. But for Horizon, its something we look forward to. The winter freeze offers a renewal and revitalization of the soil used for growing our crops. Unlike climates that are above freezing year round, our freeze cycle kills all pathogens in the soil offering fertile and revitalized ground for planting each spring. Its a unique benefit of a northern climate and one of the things we believe is another advantage for Horizon customers.
