About Optimum

The OPTIMUM™ range of products have been developed with nutritionists and vets from Waltham - the world's leading authority on pet care and nutrition - ensuring that dogs and cats receive all the essential nutrition they need no matter what their life stage or lifestyle. 

Like us, dogs and cats need a complete and balanced diet to stay in peak condition. The OPTIMUM™ dry range offers more than a nutritionally complete meal - it offers tailored nutrition to suit the needs of dogs and cats at each life stage or lifestyle.

Why should you buy OPTIMUM™ products

1. Perfectly Balanced Nutrition (MNP®)

The OPTIMUM™ brand is the first to bring you scientifically formulated pet nutrition using the Macro-Nutrient Profile that provides your cat or dog with the perfect balance of carbohydrate, fat and protein their bodies require and they naturally prefer.   

The OPTIMUM™ Dry Cat range has been developed to include up to 43% protein (twice that of fresh meat) and low levels of carbohydrate to satisfy their unique dietary requirement as carnivores.  Click here to find out more about The Importance of Protein for Cats.
