For years Americans have been more sensitive than Italians, and more generally to Europeans, to the grain-free issue. That is why our first grain-free line was launched on the US market that, by definition, is readier to accept it. This is the reason why we behaved in an unconventional way, by launching Legend in the USA first.
Plants have a wide variety of active principles that are well known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and their balancing effect on the immune defenses. Phytotherapy is more and more considered as a valid alternative to chemistry, thanks to studies that prove it efficacy and a lower risk of unwanted side effects. The products of LEGEND line contain specific pools of plants that strengthen the defenses of the immune system against common pollutants and promote the solution of your dog’s food-related disorders.

Because all Legend formulations arise from the discovery Sergio Canello – Italian veterinarian who founded SANYpet-FORZA10 – made on the high toxicity of oxytetracycline. It is an antibiotic easily found in bone meal that composes meat meals. Meat meals, in turn, are common components of the most of traditional pet food. (To learn more on oxytetracycline, click here).
The idea that in the wild dogs would not eat plants is an imprecision: if you consider the wolf, you should remind that his prey are typically herbivore animals (deers, fallow deers…) that, after being hunt, are eaten in their entirety, or even starting from the guts, that are obviously rich in herbs and plants from which the wolves will take the active substances contained.
Specifically, our choice to add extracts of oregano, thyme and dandelion is due to their specific properties: oregano has very high quantities of phenols and so it has an antioxidant action and protective properties to the gastrointestinal tract (antiseptic and antispasmodic properties in the first place); thyme has antibacterial and antiseptic properties on the gastrointestinal system and the urinary tract, as well as having a protective action on gums; finally, dandelion can reduce intestinal inflammation and the inulin it contains helps the maintenance and development of positive gut flora.

In Legend Skin we added rose hips’ extracts, sage and cranberry because they have specific healthy properties: rose hips’ extract is very rich in vitamin C (even 100 times more than in citrus fruits), polyphenols and bioflavonoids, which are all substances that stimulate the immune defenses and have an antioxidant action; sage has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties and it is a strong antioxidant too; finally, cranberry is a “scavenger” of free radicals and combats oxidation in a way that is similar to vitamin C and vitamin E.

Yes. This makes it possible to avoid any possible sensitivity to this element that, as I often notice, is frequently harmful to man too.
A grain-free diet does not imply that it is free from carbohydrates, but it is without all kinds of grain, that are left out from the foods. (To learn more, read our blog article)
The choice to make a grain-free food does not derive from an aversion towards grains, since it was scientifically proven that dogs can digest them without any problems. The enemy number one of SANYpet – FORZA10 is oxytetracycline, an antibiotic that is widely and lawfully used in industrial farming. The grain-free choice is the answer to the research of the perfect formula, the inclusion of that small percentage of dogs who are allergic to a grain and the will to give everybody the possibility to make their choice.

Proteins are from anchovy, organic chicken, potato and pea.
Because proteins are NOT obtained from animals from industrial farming and the ocean oily fish (whole anchovies) is wild caught on the open sea to avoid any possible contamination from environmental pollutants. To find the cleanest proteins, we went the untouched Iceland, where fish live in a true nature reserve. Chicken is used only if it is certified organic or comes from Icelandic extensive farming, where the use of drugs is not necessary. (Click here to learn more)
Yes, Legend contains whole anchovies, wild caught on the open sea to avoid any possible contamination from environmental pollutants.
The fish comes from the untouched waters of Iceland or of the Antarctic side of Peru, natural reserves that ensure quality and healthiness. In Iceland, the marine ecosystem is managed in a responsible way and for Icelanders fish is not only a job, but their life itself. The mass presence of sea-trouts certifies the purity of water, since this fish cannot live in a polluted environment.
Because we want to ensure our cleanest and best-quality fish to our four-legged friends. Anchovies, since they are very small fish that live in surface waters, do not accumulate the dangerous environmental pollutants that stockpile on the seabed, thus avoiding any possible contamination by heavy metals.

Yes, the chicken is used only if it is organic certified or comes from Icelandic extensive farming.
The preservatives we use in our formulations are natural; specifically, we use tocopherol extracts of natural origin that have a very high antioxidant effect. Moreover, we use rosemary. Surprisingly, but not too much, tocopherols and rosemary guarantee a long-lasting and safe preservation.
