Our Gourmet Biscuits are made directly from our dog food, sliced and baked to be a nutritious treat. As with our dog foods, they are nutritionally balanced with meat as the first ingredient and are completely natural. These ‘seconds’ are irregular pieces (some thicker, some thinner, some that are broken) that still offer these great benefits but just aren’t as uniform in size and shape as our packaged items.
Rollover Gourmet Biscuits are hard – and are meant to be – so that your dog receives the full dental benefits while enjoying this nutritious, tasty treat.
The calorie content for these items is approximately 2.9 calories/g for the Beef and Lamb, 3.7 calories/g for the Chicken and 2.3 calories/g for the Whitefish & Maple.
Feed as a treat and always supervise your dog with any treat.
Beef Biscuits: Beef (liver, lung, spleen), whole wheat flour, sugar, oat flakes, trace minerals (calcium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese), salt, choline, vitamin supplements (A, D3, E, B1, B2, B6, B12, C), folic acid, biotin
Lamb Biscuits: Lamb (liver, lung, trim), whole wheat flour, sugar, oat flakes, trace minerals (calcium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese), long grain rice, salt, choline, vitamin supplements (A, D3, E, B1, B2, B6, B12, C), folic acid, biotin
Chicken Biscuits: Mechanically de-boned chicken (white & dark meat), whole wheat flour, sugar, oat flakes, trace minerals (calcium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese), salt, roasted poultry seasoning, choline, rosemary, green tea, vitamin supplements (A, D3, E,B1, B2, B6, B12, C), folic acid, biotin
Whitefish & Maple Biscuits: Whitefish blend (sole, cod, turbot), ground chickpeas, tapioca flour, sugar, herring, trace minerals (calcium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese), salt, maple, choline, taurine, vitamins (A, D3, E, B1, B2, B6, B12, C), folic acid, biotin
Beef and Lamb organ meats are considered ‘super foods’ due to their high protein content and nutrient density
Mechanically de-boned chicken consists of meat only (no by-products). These meats are very high in protein, low in fat and are an excellent source of niacin (cancer-protective B vitamin) and selenium (required for immune and thyroid function). As well, they are a good source of Vitamin B6 which is helpful for supporting energy metabolism.
Whitefish are a fantastic source of Omega-3’s and a good source of protein.
Whole Wheat Flour is high in fibre and higher in protein than white flour. It is a healthier alternative when flour is required for a recipe.
Sugar is present in our dog food as a humectant only (prevents mould and bacteria growth). Rollover ensures that the absolute minimum possible is used (safe upper limit is 35%**; Rollover uses approximately 13%) and sugar is easily digested by dogs.
Oat Flakes help to improve and regulate digestion, reduce blood sugar, and help to keep your dog feeling fuller, longer. Oat flakes are high in amino acids, vitamins and minerals.
Salt is a critical requirement for all living beings and, as its components are not synthesized by dogs naturally, is required as a supplement in their food. Rollover adds only sufficient salt to ensure your dog has the required amounts of sodium and chloride for optimal health.
Folic Acid helps to digest and utilize proteins, aids in tissue growth and cell function and is necessary for the production of red blood cells and the synthesis of DNA.
Biotin is needed for cell growth and the metabolism of fats and amino acids.
Choline is an essential nutrient that is required for the formation of cell membranes and is also helpful in preventing the formation of a fatty liver.
