A Guide to Ingredients

We know that ingredients are very important to you, so we created this glossary of ingredients to make it quick and easy for you to find explanations of ingredients and related terms. This is meant to be a complete guide to ingredients used in the pet treat industry as a whole, meaning not all ingredients listed here are used in NPIC treats. To help you quickly identify the ingredients we use in our products we have set up this key:

NPIC Green Leaf Logo
When you see this green leaf next to the description and the ingredient title is green, it is an ingredient we use in our products.
  •     Ingredients listed in black are not used in any NPIC products.
