The Terra Canis HYPOALLERGENIC menus are comprised of pure muscle and heart meat (60%) from a single, exotic or otherwise unusual source of protein. This meat is supplemented by only one low-allergen vegetable. Linseed oil supplies high-quality Omega-3 fatty acids and is also known for supporting the gastrointestinal tract as well as the skin and fur and has an anti-inflammatory effect. A balanced mix of vitamins and minerals provides the nutrient supply for this low-allergen diet that is reduced to a few ingredients. Terra Canis HYPOALLERGENIC is suitable for dogs with allergies and sensitive digestions and for implementing an exclusion diet. This product line was developed in cooperation with Dr Bucksch, animal dermatologist and veterinarian specialist for small animals.
Terra Canis HYPOALLERGENIC was able to prove in a scientific study* that there is no contamination of a foreign DNA. In the renowned magazine ‘Veterinary Dermatology’ a study* was released by international veterinarians. The variety Terra Canis hypoallergenic horse was examined. Terra Canis hypoallergenic was the only wet food which was untainted and without any contamination of one of the five tested foreign DNA. The results from this study show that 9 out of 12 products by renowned producers contained DNA of one or more of the five tested animal species which were not declared. The DNA of beef (8 products) and pork (6 products) was most frequently detected.

Why are these menus more expensive?
In addition to the exclusive use of muscle and heart meat and the 100% human-grade quality of all raw materials, the extremely high market price for ostrich, buffalo and kangaroo meat makes this product somewhat more expensive.This meat can cost 3-4 times as much as beef, turkey, or chicken meat. It must be imported as frozen goods from Australia and South Africa.

100% human-grade quality
With the concept ‘Dog nutrition in 100% human-grade quality of all raw materials’, Terra Canis set completely new quality standards in the pet food industry 15 years ago. Thanks to a special permit from the Bavarian Feedstuffs Authority, pet food was able to be produced for the first time in a genuine human-grade quality company, the traditional Munich butcher’s shop Schäbitz. This was made possible by the fact that, right from the very start, only raw materials were used which, thanks to their freshness and quality, were officially approved for human food products at the time of processing. This uncompromising quality and the associated delicious, appetising smell of the menus have set Terra Canis menus apart from all other products on the market from the very beginning.
Due to the constantly increasing demand, the butcher's shop in the heart of Munich has reached its capacity limits.
As quality is of the highest priority for Terra Canis, the menus will now be produced in our new factory just outside Munich.
Manufacturing the products within “our own four walls” enables maximum control over the quality of raw materials. In addition, the three master butchers from Schäbitz butcher’s in Munich and their entire team have been brought over, bringing with them decades of experience and expertise in the butcher's trade.
All the raw materials used, the production site and the hygiene concept are subject to 100% human-grade standards.
