Our Lucky Lou brand offers the Lifestage Kitten range especially for kittens, which is perfectly adapted to the special needs of young cats.

All adult varieties Life-Stage and Supermono2 can also be fed to healthy senior cats. However, our Lucky Lou Life-Stage Senior line is ideally suited to the needs of older cats. Thus, the protein content is moderate while at the same time the energy supply via the fat content meets the needs. Older cats may benefit from a lower protein content to relieve organ stress, but should still not fall into underweight or muscle loss. In case of existing diseases, such as kidney or liver weakness, prior consultation with a veterinarian is essential. Lucky Lou is not a diet food!

Even though Lucky Lou is not a designated diet food, it meets important criteria for the nutrition of cats with diabetes, e.g. high-quality proteins and low carbohydrate content (NfE) in combination with high-fiber ingredients. Even though proper nutrition is a non-negligible pillar of therapy for diabetic cats, reducing to the cat's ideal weight is the most important component! Avoidance of overweight is the decisive factor!

The diet of a cat with kidney disease always requires consultation with the attending veterinarian. Depending on the stage of the disease, different therapy measures (especially regarding feeding) are necessary. In the early stages Lucky Lou Lifestage Senior can be presented to the veterinarian for evaluation.

Since animal raw materials can be subject to large fluctuations due to their natural origin, the mineral contents are also subject to natural fluctuations and can only be specified within a tolerance range. However, with the help of permanent analyses we have calculated the following average values: Calcium: approx. 0.23 Phosphorus: approx. 0.18 % Note: The values given are calculated average values. The individual product is therefore still within the tolerance limits.

Yes, the compositions of Lucky Lou Lifestage are completely identical. The slightly firmer consistency of the food in the cans compared to the pouches occurs during cold filling and preservation. With the cans, more pressure must be applied here, so that the feed is somewhat compacted and appears firmer. Many cats like 2-3 tablespoons of hot water mixed into the food with a fork. This creates an aromatic, lukewarm meal with a softer consistency. This not only increases the acceptance, but also the daily liquid intake.

All ingredients for a flavor are first coarsely minced. Now the components are mixed together. During mixing and subsequent cold filling, air pockets can form which increase the volume of the mass (similar to whipped cream). This is particularly common with soft ingredients (for example, fish). Since we fill by weight, not volume, cans whose contents have more air pockets will be slightly fuller. Now the cans are sealed and heated to prevent bacteria formation. This reliably kills all bacteria, including those that would form the dangerous botulinum toxin. As they cool, the fuller cans contract unevenly. Occasionally, cans are under higher pressure, so that the feed can ooze out when opened. However, the feed is not spoiled! The uneven distribution of pressure can also result in flexible can lids, which can be pressed in somewhat. The shelf life is not limited by this.

Please store still closed food in a dark place protected from sunlight; ideally at room temperature. After opening, we recommend storing the feed airtight (for example, closed with a can lid) in the refrigerator and consume within the next 48 hours.

Due to their natural composition, our ingredients are subject to fluctuations over which we unfortunately have little influence. For example, meat from animals slaughtered in the warm months of the year is more watery than that from animals brought to the butcher in the winter. This can result in variable moisture content in the raw ingredients of Lucky Lou Lifestage and Supermono2 products, which ultimately affects the product texture, sometimes resulting in more jelly. Before filling, the feed is thoroughly mixed. Nevertheless, the result is not a completely homogeneous mass. Here, too, there may be variations in jelly content due to filling.

No, Lucky Lou does not contain added sugar, sugar substitutes or sweeteners.

Our productions obtain their raw materials from regional sources wherever possible, so that, for example, long transport routes of the animals to the slaughterhouse are avoided. All animal producing and processing plants are subject to official veterinary controls, ensuring that applicable animal welfare laws are respected. Since our production obtains raw materials from a large number of producers, it is not possible for us to provide detailed information about the exact husbandry conditions of the individual farms and livestock breeders. We ask for your understanding. Ultimately, all processed raw materials are subjected to quality controls, which allow further conclusions to be drawn about the proper treatment of the animals. Furthermore, we receive the meat types deer, roe deer, wild boar, pheasant and rabbit directly from the producer. Of course, we observe the seasonal breeding & setting times.

Since Lucky Lou uses natural raw materials, the feed is subject to natural variations. Our commitment to quality without the use of molded meat, artificial stabilizers and animal meal is also reflected in the not always uniform appearance and consistency of the product. As with the ingredients for our own meals, the meat can sometimes be a little firmer and stringier, others softer and fattier. To produce an always uniform product would only be possible by adding stabilizers and molded meat. We want to do without these in the future as well.

No, Lucky Lou does not test on animals! It is very important to us that all our products are animal-free. Test candidates for our new foods are only our office dogs and privately owned cats, who are allowed to try the products before they are released.

If you add the individual components of the guaranteed analysis, you get as a sum for some varieties a value greater than 100 percent. This calculation is completely correct. The NfE is to be set equal to zero for these varieties. The reason for a value higher than 100% is the natural fluctuations of the natural raw material used. As a result, the values of the guaranteed analysis can only be given with a calculated mean value. The resulting deviations in relation to the final product are taken into account by the legislator by allowing certain tolerances. For this reason, however, it can happen that the sum of the individual analysis values results in more than 100 percent.

Potatoes - known to be a very starchy ingredient - have a bad reputation with some cat owners Tapioca is also a source of starch, but less well known Starch is essential for the production of Kibbles Unverified source for cats: Tapioca has resistant starch, which breaks down primarily in the large intestine and therefore does not cause blood sugar levels to rise. In the case of potatoes, the starch only becomes resistant starch when it is cooked and then cooled.
