The ingredients used for our products are mainly sourced from Ukraine. Some of the ingredients are from France, New Zealand, Germany and Poland. We do not source ingredients from China.
All Optimeal® products consist of natural ingredients and protein sources for cats and dogs, with added vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.
We use protein sources that have been tested for quality, source and form—including palatability and digestibility testing with animal panels. Novel protein is at the stage of research and development and, as soon as we get the results confirming their benefits, we will introduce them into our pet food.
Our diets contain organ meat such as pork liver, beef liver, beef heart, beef lungs and muscle tissue because organ meat is more nutrient dense than other types of meat. Organs are nature’s multivitamin. They are rich in protein and amino acids that help strengthen and maintain your pet’s muscles. They are particularly rich in B-vitamins, such as vitamin B12 and folate, along with choline. They are also rich in minerals, including iron, magnesium, selenium and zinc, as well as important fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, E and K
The difference between jelly, gravy and sauce is their consistency. Jelly is thicker, while sauces are more like broth.

At Optimeal®, we know that each pet has their unique taste and food preferences—just like people. That is why each Optimeal® product has different shapes and sizes of kibble. For example, we know that toy breeds need small kibble to enjoy their meals. Cats are picky eaters, and their food preferences may vary. For cats, not just the protein source is important—but also the size and shape of kibble. Kibble size, shape and color may differ a little between the different lot numbers (product manufacturing dates), because we use only natural ingredients, and we don’t use any colorants or stabilizers.
Corn, wheat and soy have all been identified as potential allergens for some dogs and cats.
All Optimeal® product recipes are formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food/Cat Food according to their nutritional profile. We use our European expertise to produce dog and cat food that is beyond expectations for a kibble.
Retailers (local pet stores) sell packs containing 4 pouches (3 oz each). On Amazon and Chewy you can buy a box that contains 6 packs (with 4 pouches each), which means 24 pouch packs (3 oz each).

The key to a long and happy life of an animal is its health—the basis of which is nutrition. But every day the animal's body is exposed to external factors. For example, walking outdoors or meeting other pets can lead to foreign viruses or bacteria in the body. It is the strong immunity of the pet that saves it from the negative consequences of such exposure and maintains the health of the pet.
Optimeal® products support the immune system through the use of antioxidants such as vitamin E and C, plus other nutrients that help support the health of the immune system. These include vitamin A, Zinc and Selenium. Optimeal® provides the entire spectrum of nutritional support required to keep your pet’s immune system strong.
