Hugh and Dan Stevensen are brothers who have spent their working lives helping dog owners have more success. Over the past 30+ years they have been committed to nutrition and pet health issues and are more convinced than ever that all of us must change how we feed our pets! Time to throw out the high carb foods and focus on a smarter, healthier diet for your pet.
Using primarily Canadian ingredient sources, Boréal pet foods will allow you to control the protein and carb sources you feed and help keep weight off and your pet’s energy levels where they belong. Most of their foods use a single source protein, and lean heavily on peas and beans to keep their foods healthy. They have added an antioxidant and a prebiotic package to their blends to cover not only taste, but digestion and health concerns.
Boréal sources local Canadian ingredients, grown and raised under world-class conventional agriculture quality standards, whenever possible.
Boreal's goal is to reduce the wrong kind of carbohydrates and really focus in on low GI – glycemic index – starches. By basing their foods on low GI foods like peas, beans and single protein meat sources your pet will feel full longer after they eat and the diet will help keep blood sugar levels from fluctuating. Boreal adds Availa®Pet, an easily absorbed trace mineral package containing zinc, iron and manganese to all their pet foods for important health benefits.
Boreal also has two lines of canned foods - a new Canadian-made lineup of of Cobb Chicken, Heritage Turkey, Canadian Duck, Atlantic Salmon, Angus Beef and NZ Lamb and a Red Meat Tuna line from Thailand.
Boréal Wet Foodis Grain Free, Gum Free, and Potato Free - a limited ingredients diet that is high meat and low carb. Like their dry foods the new wet foods have Availa® Pet - Organic Zinc for Healthy Skin and Coat.
Too many dogs and cats are carrying around too much weight. As with people, being overweight is unhealthy. Excess fat means hearts could be strained, joints taxed, and blood sugar levels elevated. Pet diabetes is on the rise.
We believe the reason is many pets are eating foods that are heavily processed and full of ingredients chosen for low price and storage benefits rather than for proper nutrition. Our Boreal foods are healthy, Canadian, and easy on the wallet.
