Do you eat fast food every meal? Why feed it to you dog?
Normal kibble is the equivalent of a fast food meal for us. We all love our best friends and want them to live long health lives! So why not feed them a meal that is as healthy, if not healthier, than what we eat. Or raw recipe is packed full of fresh raw spinach, apples, carrots, cranberries, blueberries and turmeric! Just to name a few ingredients.

We have put a lot of effort into making not only a superior product for your pets health but also one that doesn't harm our planet. 97% of our insect protein is upcycled from pre-consumer food waste. When available we source our fruit & veggies from seconds and direct from farms. Also we have selected a completely home compostable and recyclable packaging!
