What is crude ash?

Crude ash in dog and cat food refers to the total mineral content in the food after it has been burned at very high temperatures. This includes minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and zinc, as well as trace elements such as copper, iron, and selenium. While the term 'crude ash' may sound unhealthy, it is actually an important nutrient for dogs and cats and is necessary for good health and bodily function.

However, too much crude ash in the food can be harmful to pets. Therefore, it is important to monitor the level of crude ash in the food and choose food that contains the recommended amount of minerals and trace elements that are specifically suitable for your pet. Your veterinarian can help you choose the right food for your pet based on their individual nutritional needs.
