Tasty, organic snacks and treats for your dogs and cats - spoil your pet the healthy way!
Did you know that treats and snacks are the fastest growing segment of the pet food market? The reason being is that more and more pet owners are starting to treat their pets like one of their own children. While pets used to be valued for purposes such as keeping mice at bay or as a hunting partner, they're now being included within the family unit as an active member, and we're loving it! Most pet owners these days love to spoil their fur babies, just like they would love to spoil their own child. The only downside is that, due to the increasing demand of pet food and treats, the pressure falls on manufacturers to mass produce. Mass production almost always leads to decreased quality - if you don't believe us, just take a look at the ingredients in your commercial pet food and treats!
You'll be shocked to know that commercial pet food and snacks are full of preservatives, colourants and other chemicals which may harm your pet's health AND the planet! Yes, commercial pet food and treats do contain a few necessary vitamins and minerals to sustain our pets’ health, but not enough to provide their body's with everything that they need. Additionally, commercial pet food contains about 35% protein, 19% fat and 37% carbohydrates - an interesting statistic considering cats and dogs are primarily carnivorous. Protein is the most expensive ingredient while carbohydrates are the cheapest; usually cheaper foods contain more carbohydrates. Often, they use substitutes like corn gluten meal or soybean meal to get the protein up to minimum acceptable levels - this leads to an excess in calories, making dry pet food one of the leading causes of obesity in pets!
We're going to give you our top recommendations for healthy pet food and snacks, that your fur baby will LOVE!
