Continuous investments are required to keep up with the market and always offer state of the art products.
For this reason our Research & Development department keeps upgrading according to technical-scientific progress in our sector.

Pet nutrition has faced deep changes thanks to the higher knowledge concerning pet’s physiology and their specific needs. In the last years a fundamental shift from the classic concept of nutrition – intended to meet basic requirements such as providing enough energy and essential nutrients for pet’s survival – has taken place.

Thanks to the impulse provided by the veterinary and scientific research, this basic concept has progressively evolved into the concept of Nutrition for Healthy Leaving, having the purpose of optimizing pet’s wellness. Based on this drive, the Research and Development department of Gheda Petfood works daily on the formulation of our recipes that are not simply nutritious, but focus on the following key points:

Beneficial effects of specific nutrients for the improvement of physiological functions, through the selection of carefully dosed natural active ingredients to obtain real tested results;

Risk reduction of developing diseases, thanks to a daily preventive action to promote the lengthening of the life expectancy of our pets;

Wellness maintenance, to optimize the quality of life and promote longevity; recipes suitable for the specific pet’s physiology.

The results obtained in the last few years by adopting this nutrition philosophy are evidenced by the continuous development of innovative products, such as:

Range of products dedicated to specific nutritional needs, due to physio-pathological state. These products take advantage of the properties of nutraceutical principles, natural substances capable of combining effectiveness with the absence of side effects. This diet assist veterinary care, reducing – if possible – drugs dosage or supplements.
Careful study and in-depth knowledge of the constitution of dogs has allowed the creation of recipes tailored to pet’s specific morphology and function, to fully express its genetic potential and to prevent its natural sensitivities.
Thanks to the synergy of the Italian confectionery tradition and the modern research, we created highly functional for the oral care, unique and irresistible biscuits and snacks for the pet market. They are meant also to support the regulation of glycaemic metabolism, to assist cardiac efficiency and immune efficiency. In this range of biscuits there are some acting as complete meal. Some of these biscuits besides being nutritious, can be considered food supplements thanks to their richness in specific vitamins and minerals.
