Besides being constituted with a combination of the best natural ingredients and essential nutrients for each stage of life, breed size or specific need, Guabi Natural also offers different flavors that allow to diversify the diet and even benefit the animals that present a more whimsical appetite.
The Guabi Natural Line is artificial colors and flavors free in its formulation. In addition, its innovative formula includes antioxidants such as rosemary extract and concentrated tocopherols to naturally preserve the food and combines the best natural ingredients with essential nutrients for each life stage, breed size or specific need of dogs and cats.
The percentages informed on the packaging reflect the balance between the ingredients and nutrients, and provide more transparency and clarity of food composition. Therefore, the percentage levels informed on the packaging may be different depending on the life stage (Puppy/Kitten, adult or senior), breed size or specific need (such as animals Spayed/Neutered, with difficulty in maintaining ideal weight or with more sensitive skin). Percentages may range from 45 to 70% for animal ingredients, 25 to 45% for whole grains and 5 to 10% for fruits, vegetables, Vitamins, Minerals and Functional Ingredients.
Having a long and healthy life is possible when we follow a balanced lifestyle that combines proper nutrition with regular exercise, and this is also true for pets. This seal reflects our concern and care to promote health and quality of life for pets. “A balanced diet in appropriate amounts, combined with regular physical activity, provides a balanced body condition for a longer and healthier life.” Body condition can be determined by a scale of 1 to 9 that can be used by guardians for the purpose of assisting in identifying ideal body weight. A body condition between 4 and 5 has a positive effect on the health and quality of life of animals. Studies show that animals that have an ideal body condition score can live longer and can delay the onset of chronic diseases. For more information about body condition score, visit our blog.
Guabi Natural is a line of Super Premium Foods that has a variety of foods with superior quality, developed by nutrition experts and approved by veterinarians, for the different stages of life, breed size or specific needs of dogs and cats. In addition, it has different flavors such as Chicken and Brown Rice, salmon fish and barley, lamb meat, oats, turkey, and oats.
Yes, chicken, salmon fish or lamb meats are added during the manufacturing process (cooking) and bring the benefits of providing high quality and usable protein, essential nutrients and make the food taste even better.
Yes, the particles were developed specially for each life stage, breed size or specific need of dogs and cats, which facilitates the correct chewing and grasping of food and favoring digestion and absorption of nutrients.
The difference is in the weight of the dog: toy sized dogs are those that weigh up to 5kg when adult, small sized dogs are those between 5 and 10kg, medium sized dogs from 11 to 25kg, large sized dogs from 26 to 45kg, and giant dogs weigh over 46kg. Each breed size has a specific need and metabolism. Thus, the foods differ in composition and inclusion of functional ingredients, and have different particle sizes to aid in the animals grasping and chewing. For guidance on the recommended daily amount, more precisely based on the individual needs of your dog or cat, go to Daily Amount.
The toy and small-sized dog breeds have a different metabolism and peculiar specific needs. Thus, the food intended for toy and small dogs is carefully developed to offer the best energetic and nutritional composition, in addition to having particle size and shape suitable to aid in the grasping and chewing by the animals. Its special formula has fibers (beet paste and psyllium) and prebiotics (mannanoligosaccharides – MOS and inulin) that favor good intestinal transit and proper formation of feces, besides helping to control odor. The reduction of stool odors is achieved through the daily supply of a food with high digestibility (utilization) and with the inclusion of Yucca Extract, being ideal for dogs that live indoors. In addition, the food also has sodium hexametaphosphate, a functional ingredient that when present in the daily food reduces the formation of “tartar”.
The food intended for medium-sized dog breeds is developed to offer an energetic and nutritional composition aimed at dogs of this size, in addition to having particle size and shape suitable to aid in the grasping and chewing by animals. Its special formula has fibers (beet paste and psyllium) and prebiotics (mannanoligosaccharides – MOS and inulin) that favor good intestinal transit and proper formation of feces, besides helping to control odors. The reduction of stool odors is achieved through the daily supply of a food with high digestibility (utilization) and with the inclusion of Yucca Extract. In addition, the food also has functional ingredients such as glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, fish oil (source of omega 3: EPA and DHA) and beta-glucans to promote joint health.
Large and giant dog breeds have a different metabolism and a gastrointestinal tract with anatomical characteristics somewhat different from other sizes. Thus, the food intended for large and giant-sized dogs is carefully developed to offer the best energetic and nutritional composition, in addition to having the appropriate size and shape of particles to aid in the grasping and chewing by the animals. Its special formula has an adequate composition and fiber content (beet paste and psyllium) and prebiotics (mannanoligosaccharides – MOS and inulin) that favor good intestinal transit and proper formation of feces. In addition, the food also has functional ingredients such as glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, fish oil (source of omega 3: EPA and DHA) and beta-glucans to promote joint health.
Super Premium foods have quality ingredients that offer a high utilization of nutrients by the body. A highly digestible food causes the animal to produce less feces, which are well formed. In addition, essential nutrients are added in optimal amounts in Super Premium Foods. Thus, since Super Premium Foods provide a high utilization of nutrients by the body, a smaller amount of the Super Premium Food consumed compared to Premium Food provides all the nutrients needed and also reduces the amount of feces produced.
The package that has not yet been opened must be stored in a cool, dry, sunless environment, without contact with walls or floors and away from moisture, such as laundry rooms, bathrooms etc. It should also not have contact with chemical products, such as cleaning materials, hygiene, perfumery, lubricating oils, pesticides or other materials that may compromise the food and the health of the animal. After the packaging is opened, it is important that the package continues to be stored in an environment with the characteristics already directed and kept, preferably, inside a closed container to preserve the characteristics of the food and avoid access, especially to insects, rodents and birds. Before purchasing the food, it is important to check the integrity of the packaging and its expiration date, making sure that the food will be consumed before the informed expiration date.

This program guarantees that we will exchange the refused food or reimburse you for the purchase price if your pet does not accept the new food, according to the current regulations. It is important to remember that the change from one food to another should occur gradually, over at least 5 days, according to the table on the food package. Typically, after the transition period between the two foods, the animal will be adjusted and will regularize the consumption of the new food. For more information visit 100% Satisfaction.
The current Guabi Natural line (green packaging) was developed to ensure a varied diet, bringing the ideal balance between the groups of ingredients of animal byproduct, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
The Guabi Natural Grain Free line follows the same care with the balance of ingredients and essential nutrients for the pet’s health, but in a version without the addition of grains such as corn, rice and wheat, considered sources of conventional carbohydrates. As an alternative source of carbohydrates, we use vegetables and legumes such as lentil and cassava, and fruits rich in nutrients such as apricot, fig, blueberry, mango, apple, and blackberry. Thus, the Grain Free line is one more food option for those who seek a longer and healthier life for their pet.
All Guabi Natural foods are artificial colors and flavors free and are naturally preserved with tocopherols.

Each animal has a unique metabolism. So, to avoid that the sudden change from a food commonly offered to a new food causes gastrointestinal discomfort, a transition period is recommended, which is the gradual change, thus favoring the pet’s adjustment to the new food. It’s one more care with our pets!
For this, you should increase the amount of Guabi Natural little by little, mixing on the first day 10% of Guabi Natural with 90% of the previous food. On the second day, offer 70% of the previous food and 30% Guabi Natural. On the third day, it is already possible to offer 50% of each food and, thus, little by little, the exchange is done at the end of the minimum period of 5 days, according to the instructions described on the package.
For the manufacturing of each of our foods, we ensure that the size and shape of the particles are within the previously studied limits. However, the foods go through a cooking process called extrusion (which is a fast, continuous and homogeneous way of cooking) that combines different factors such as temperature, humidity and pressure, which can slightly affect the dimensions of the particles and cause small variations in size or shape. However, these slight differences are not associated with the loss of their nutritional characteristics and pose no health risk to pets.
Because it is a natural food, with no added colorants, it may present slight variations in the shade of the particles due to small differences in the shades of the raw materials used in its composition.
The method of use and the daily amount of food can be found on the packaging. However, it is important to remember that the amounts reported are only a guideline and may need to be adjusted depending on the pet and its level of physical activity.
Go to Daily Amount to check a more precise daily amount, based on your pet’s individual needs! There we provide these and other recommendations developed by experts in dog and cat nutrition.

If your pet is a dog, check what stage of life it is in: Puppy, adult or senior. If he’s a Puppy, you need to estimate his body weight when he’s an adult and then choose the right size food. If he is an adult or senior dog, check his size according to his ideal body weight.
Toy dog breeds are those that weigh up to 5 kg when adult, small breed sizes are those between 5 and 10 kg, medium sizes from 11 to 25 kg, large sizes from 26 to 45 kg and giants weigh over 46 kg. Each size has its own metabolism and a specific need!
Also, check if your dog has a specific need, such as difficulty in maintaining ideal weight or a more sensitive skin. In these cases, a Light food or a food for special skin care like Sensitive can help!
If your pet is a cat, check what stage of life it is in: Kitten, adult or senior. Also, check if he is Spayed/Neutered or not. We have food of different flavors and carefully developed to meet the needs of the metabolism of the Spayed/Neutered cat, assisting in the proper body weight.
