VETERINARY INSTANT SOUPS (VIS®)
We are able to produce practical and easy-to-use patented soups based on cereals, meat, vegetables and functional ingredients, ready in a few seconds by adding warm or hot water. The product represents the ideal solution for dogs and cats who can appreciate the typical palatability of a soup or a home-prepared meal, and it is very practical also for the owner who can prepare in a few seconds a tasty meal. The production method with VIS® technology, which involves coating the cereal with a special lipid mixture, maintains the crunchiness for a long time, favoring therefore a greater liking to the animal.
