IT's our number
Rayne diets are part of the medical management of patients in veterinary hospitals across the country, and we take this responsibility very seriously. After all, we are pet owners too. Rayne diets are fed to our own furry family members!
We test throughout production to bring you a consistent product while managing the natural variability of whole food ingredients.
All finished products go through intensive in house testing AND are sent to an independent lab for full analysis before being released.
These processes ensure we are providing whole food veterinary diets that are consistent, safe, and the highest possible quality.
One unique aspect of quality and safety is to ensure absolute purity of our novel protein diets.
We source our novel proteins from suppliers who are only handling that protein – this eliminates risk of cross contamination before we receive the meat.
We do a full shut down and clean of the line before running our products. This takes 8 hours for the dry manufacturer and 4 for the wet. It includes more than 40 different cleaning steps and 60 different check points.
We go beyond this and swab the line to ELISA test for other meat proteins. We also ELISA test the finished product. This ensures when the diets are made there is no risk of cross contamination.
We have the only novel protein diets that do not use fish oil or conflicting animal fats (beef, pork, chicken etc). We use algae meal for omega 3s and coconut oil for omega 6s. This ensures a product with no additional animal protein to protect our most sensitive patients.
WHERE IS OUR FOOD MADE?
Rayne diets are unique and challenging to make! Most pet food facilities are designed to work with dry, powdered ingredients. Rayne diets are made with fresh meat and vegetables – whole food ingredients. We needed to find manufacturing partners who had invested in the equipment and team training to work with fresh ingredients.
We want the absolute best for your pet, after all, we are pet owners too!
