There is one product and only one product that goes into the making of Cat-Man-Doo Bonito flakes. That product is called Katsuowonus pelamis, known to us here in the U.S. as Bonito, a bony fish that hails from the Tuna family. It is wild caught approximately 300 to 500 miles off the South East coast of Japan in the salty waters of the western Pacific Ocean. Bonito is used extensively in Japanese cuisine for making a savory broth, but cats and dogs love the flakes just the way they are, right out of the container!
Once caught, the fish is processed both by hand and by machine in a temperature controlled factory. It is dried, then cut into very thin slices. The drying process alone takes 20 to 30 days. There are no additives or preservatives added to the fish at any point before, during or after the processing, and absolutely nothing has been introduced into the fish to compromise its purity.
