Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Bravo making canned foods?
At Bravo we’ve always believed in simplicity, quality and choice. Our new Canine Cafe and Feline Cafe lines provide high - quality, simple limited - ingredient formulas for those pet parents who prefer to feed canned foods.
Are these new products raw?
No, all of our Canine and Feline Cafe products are cooked. However, like our raw diet products, they are made with quality muscle meats and poultry and contain no fillers, preservatives, artificial flavors or meat and poultry meal or grain.
Can I heat these products?
Our Canine Cafe and Feline Cafe products are ready to serve right from the can, but can be warmed slightly if that is what your dog/cat prefers. Do not heat the food in the can. We suggest you transfer it to a microwave safe bowl or dish for heating in the microwave or a pan for gentle heating on the stove. Do not overheat/overcook and feed a hot food to your dog or cat - always try to bring it back to room temperature before serving. Please refrigerate any unused/unheated portions in an airtight container.
Are the ingredients all from the USA? (Anything made from ingredients sourced in China)?
Bravo never ever sources ingredients from China. We source our ingredients from reputable suppliers in the USA and countries other than China. You can find Country of Origin information for all of our products by visiting the respective Canine Cafe and Feline Cafe product pages.
Are they GMO free?
We use ingredients known to be GMO free.
Do they contain any wheat, soy or corn?
No, they do not contain wheat, soy or corn. They are all completely grain - free.
Do the cat formulas have any taurine?
All of our Feline Cafe formulas have all of the essential vitamins and minerals, including added taurine. The amount of taurine meets the requirement for complete and balanced for all life stages.
Can I feed them to a puppy (kitten)?
All of our Canine Cafe and Feline Cafe products are suitable for all life stages. Please see our feeding guide for serving sizes, although it is typically suggested to let puppies and kittens eat as much as they need in the early stages.
Do they contain antibiotics or hormones?
No, Bravo products are always made from clean meats and poultry, which means no added antibiotics. There are no added hormones in any of the poultry. Federal law allows the use of hormones when raising beef or lamb so we can’t guarantee that the farmer did not use medicinal hormones when the animal was raised.
Are there any additives or preservatives?
No, our Canine Cafe and Feline Cafe products do not have any artificial preservatives, flavors or colors.
I thought raw was supposed to be better for my dog/cat?
What to feed one’s companion animals is a very personal choice. There are those pet parents who are passionate about feeding raw, while others prefer to feed a canned option. At Bravo we’ve always believed in simple, limited ingredient formulas, made from top quality ingredients from trusted sources - nothing from China - and providing a choice of protein type and formula type (stews vs. dinners). Our new canned food lines provide all of those benefits to pet parents who prefer to feed canned foods as we do to those pet parents who prefer to feed raw.
Does this product meet AAFCO standards?
Yes, all of our Canine Cafe and Feline Cafe formulas meet the AAFCO standards for complete and balanced nutrition for all life stages.
