Quality Pet Food

It starts with understanding your pet and the nutrients they need to live their best life. As a result, our pet food is more than just a mix of ingredients.

We formulate our pet food based on a smart blend of ingredients to provide the nutrients to that support your pet’s overall health.

Quality Sourcing Makes Quality Food

Quality ingredients start at the source. Some pet food brands are content with buying straight off the shelf from their suppliers, but we demand more.

That’s why we trace every single ingredient that passes through our doors back to our trusted sources. Our experts monitor every detail of our ingredients and their origins—from weather patterns to air quality to livestock management practices.  You can see where our most commonly used ingredients come from here.

How Ingredients Are Mixed

Once inside, our ingredients are mixed in just the right proportions according to each product’s recipe. Wet ingredients are then added to dry to form a dough. The dough is then cooked and extruded into its kibble shape.
