Question:
Dear Sir or Madam,

I am interested in Wysong Epigen because I have a cat who is borderline diabetic. I was surprised that despite the claims at the site that the food is appropriate for this purpose, I could not find a statistic indicating the percentage of carbohydrate content as a proportion of calories. My vet has recommended that I should keep this below 7%. I am also concerned that the phrase "starch free" is followed by the trademark symbol, which suggests that it may have a meaning other than its ordinary language meaning.

Please send me information about the carbohydrate content, and explain the precise meaning of this trademarked phrase. Thank you.

Answer:
Other than meat and organ glycogen and plant fibers, there is no carbohydrate in Epigen™. There are no starch or sugar ingredients (the culprits in diabetes) as in all other extruded dry diets.

Wysong's Starch Free™ claim indicates exactly what you would expect – that Epigen™ is a product that is absent starch ingredients. There are no other "starch free" kibble diets available; Epigen™ is the first and only. It is therefore a descriptor unique to our product within the greater pet food market, thus our common law trademark claim.
