The food our pets eat directly impacts their digestive system, a complex system comprised of trillions of microorganisms. The healthy functioning of this system is critical for good gut health, which positively affects both the immune system and overall wellness. In fact, up to 80% of the immune system is influenced by the gut. Our founder, Sissy McGill, created Solid Gold to fulfill her passionate commitment to the health and happiness of all pets. Our nutritional platform is inspired by her belief that high quality food is the best way to impact our pet’s mind, body and spirit. That is why all of our foods cleanse, balance and fuel for gut health and overall immune support as we nourish your pet, inside & out.
Good gut health means a properly functioning digestive system comprised of trillions of microorganisms. The healthy functioning of this system is critical for your pet’s gut health which impacts both the immune system and overall wellness! Supporting the immune system through proper diet and digestive health enables pets to better fight environmental allergies which are more common than food allergies.
Did You Know?
There are several “normal” signs of poor gut health beyond the obvious gastrointestinal distress:
Cleanse with Whole Superfoods
Solid Gold dry foods cleanse with whole superfoods to provide healthy fiber to aid digestion, antioxidants and phytonutrients to help your pet thrive, and prebiotics to help feed good bacteria in the digestive system.
What is a Prebiotic?
Prebiotic is a technical term for fiber that feeds probiotics (healthy gut bacteria). Without prebiotics, probiotics would be unable to flourish. The whole superfoods in our diets include soluble fibers that act as prebiotics and we additionally utilize dry chicory root in every formula. Chicory root, a superfood of Ancient Egypt, is a critical source of inulin, and a natural prebiotic.

Balance with Probiotics
Probiotics are healthy bacteria in the digestive system. The presence of probiotics promotes digestive health, but only when balanced with prebiotics. We ensure this balance by combining prebiotics from whole superfoods with over 90 million active probiotics per pound of kibble.
Did You Know?
Not all probiotics are equal! Probiotics are incredibly fragile and can die off very easily. Some pet foods use unprotected probiotics that die before your pet can consume them. Solid Gold only uses probiotics that are protected with a proprietary process, ensuring that they are alive and active when consumed by your pet.
Fuel with Omega Fatty Acids
Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids promote a diversity of healthy bacteria and support proper gut function and overall immune system health. Thus, omega fatty acids provide fuel for our pets, while additionally delivering a soft and shiny coat for vibrant health you can see and feel.
Did You Know?
Every Solid Gold dry formula fuels your pet with powerful omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Omega fatty acids (including DHA and EPA) alter the microbiome and promote a diversity of gut bacteria that boosts the immune system. Additionally, omegas also contribute to a host of other positive health benefits.
Cleanse, Balance & Fuel
Our founder, Sissy McGill, believed that every pet deserved to be happy and healthy. We are inspired by her vision and the testimonials of a Solid Gold diet to provide transformative nutrition through the combination of whole superfoods, probiotics and omega fatty acids. At Solid Gold, we are proud to nourish your pet, inside & out by providing all pets the ideal nutritional foundation they need to achieve gut health and overall wellness.
