Why Verus

The nutrition from our products is supplied through whole foods. Our take on holistic is the use of whole meats, whole grains, vitamin antioxidant preservation, incorporation of organic nutrient sources, and chelated minerals. Our foods are carefully crafted to yield the ideal levels of protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and micronutrients for your pet.

The best meal you can feed your pet is a properly prepared home diet. If you currently prepare your pet’s diet, we applaud you. If you prefer a nutritionist to formulate your pet’s food, we invite you to try one of our healthy dog and cat foods.

VeRUS Pet Foods are the only formulas on the market to contain a patent-pending freeze-dried LIVE probiotics. Just like humans, a pet’s digestion system is home to hundreds of different types of bacteria that work to keep the intestines healthy. Probiotics are live microorganisms— similar to those found in the intestines — which help maintain the balance of this healthy natural bacteria in pets’ digestive systems.

Proteins are the building blocks for tissue development and repair. Using the highest quality proteins produces the highest quality tissue development. This is critical for growing puppies as well as active adult dogs. Our Chicken and Lamb, grown for human consumption, are raised without the use of growth hormones and are free of antibiotics. Our menhaden fish is wild caught in US waters off the East Coast and in the Gulf of Mexico.

Whole brown rice and oats are healthy natural sources of complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These rich whole grains are absorbed slower, providing excellent stored energy between meals. Whole grains also contain:


  • B vitamins – Breaks down carbohydrates into glucose for energy; breaks down fats to aid the nervous system; essential for muscle tone, skin, hair, and eyes.
  • Vitamin E – Nourishes the immune system and an excellent antioxidant.
  • Dietary Fiber – Moderates blood sugar, provides a feeling of fullness with fewer calories to maintain proper weight, proper gut function.
  • Iron – Essential for oxygen transport; regulation of cell growth; increases immunity.

Rich in micronutrients – whole grains contain 50-70% more nutrients than processed grains.

Chelated minerals are absorbed and metabolized significantly more efficiently than inorganic mineral oxides. Oxide minerals found in most pet foods are nothing more than ground up rock minerals. Only about 1/3 of these are absorbed by your pet. The indigestible minerals pass through your pets waste systems and end up as fertilizer for your yard. VéRUS Pet Foods uses amino acid chelates, which are minerals bound to an amino acids. Amino acids are absorbed readily by dogs and cats pulling all the minerals into the system. Increased mineral absorption means greater available nutrients for usage throughout the body and less available minerals in the bladder, kidneys and urinary tract where crystals and stones form.
