Using Nature as the Principle...
Person’s Pet Foods We at Wysong take your trust seriously. Over two decades of research
have been dedicated to creating products with health as the utmost
priority. Wysong Diets are conceived by common sense, grounded in
and Supplements science, developed through logic, proven with results.
Here’s what’s special about
Breast milk is nature’s perfect food. Milk is one of the few elements
in nature that has the sole function of being food. Milk is extremely
complex, containing over 100,000 different molecular components. The
delicate balance of proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, antibodies and
other micronutrients is difficult, if not impossible, to duplicate using
fractionated ingredients. Wysong Mother’s Milk™ is specifically
formulated using whole, natural ingredients to mimic breast milk for
kittens and puppies whose mother’s milk may be unavailable or
unsatisfactory. Mother’s Milk™ can also supplement the diet of older
or show cats and dogs for extra nutrition.
Protein is the nutrient of primary concern when choosing a milk
K K K K replacer. Whole milk and its components are the most beneficial sources
of protein. This is because the majority of milk proteins remain unique
to milk. These proteins have the appropriate amino acid composition
needed for growth and maturation.
Wysong Mother’s Milk™ includes six protein sources for balanced
nutrition, including whole milk, whole egg, whey, and colostrum.
Colostrum additionally provides immunoglobulins, which serve as
antibodies protecting the newborn from disease until its own immune
system has developed. Mother’s Milk™ protein sources also supply
enzymes, nucleotides, vitamins, minerals, hormones, prostaglandins,
complex sugars, and growth factors that promote development and/or
More than 50% of the calories in breast milk are from fat. In addition
to providing fuel for growth, Mother’s Milk™ fats increase resident
time in the stomach, thus increasing digestion of proteins and other
nutrients. Healthy fats also make kittens and puppies less likely to
develop allergies. In addition to the fats within colostrum, whole milk
and whole egg, Mother’s Milk™ also includes the following beneficial
Medium Chain Triglycerides – Because bile and enzyme secretions
from the liver and pancreas are not fully functional during the first few
weeks of life, it is important that fats are easily digestible. Medium
chain triglycerides (MCT’s) in Mother’s Milk™ require less bile and
enzymes for digestion, and are transported directly from the stomach
and small intestine to the liver to be utilized for energy more rapidly
than other fats, which must pass through the lymphatic system. MCT’s
also increase the absorption of amino acids, fat-soluble vitamins and
