Ultamino is a new prescription diet food for food allergic cats. This diet technology is patterned off of the human baby formula, Neocate. Neocate is for human infants who are allergic to their mother's milk and other infant formulas. Neocate and Ultamino are break through technology that works to provide great nutrition for highly allergic infants, dogs, and cats. The protein source for the Neocate and Ultamino is patented and cannot be replicated. The protein is the ultimate novel protein source.
Unlike other "novel" source pet foods, the production lines are completely cleaned several times between food production. DNA tests are performed on the food after production to ensure that it is pure and does not contain any other protein source. Many other dog and cat foods are produced without cleaning the equipment between production runs of many different types of food and are contaminated with multiple meat antigens regardless of what the package label reports. Independent DNA testing has verified this.
The results for dogs has been remarkable and now the food is available for cats.
There has been an explosion of cat and dog foods that have used all of the "novel" protein meat sources in over the counter foods; so there is not longer a "novel' protein meat source available for pets.
St. Louis Cat Clinic has just dispensed the first bag of Ultamino for a cat that is non-responsive to other diets.
