Wild Earth Introduces First Dog Treats From Koji Protein

Veterinarian-developed Good Protein Dog Snacks support healthy digestion with prebiotics
Berkeley, Calif. – Wild Earth, Inc., a startup reinventing pet food with biotech, today introduced its first product, a dog treat made with koji (Aspergillus oryzae) – an eco-friendly, renewably sourced member of the fungi kingdom used in the culinary world by some of the world’s best chefs.
Wild Earth’s Good Protein Dog Snacks with Koji satisfy foodie dogs with koji’s umami-rich flavor, whole protein containing all essential ten amino acids, and health benefits such as omega fatty acids, digestion-boosting enzymes, and prebiotics to support gastrointestinal microbiomes. Only 15 calories each, Good Protein Dog Snacks include other wholesome ingredients like peanut butter, pumpkin, and oat. As a clean cultured protein, Wild Earth’s koji avoids the risks of meat-based food and treats, which can contain traces of antibiotics, growth hormones, or other contaminants.
Nutritious, culinary, and sustainable, Good Protein Dog Snacks contain:
● Prebiotics to support healthy digestion
● Omega 3/6/9s for healthy skin and coat
● Veterinarian-developed formula
● No animal ingredients
● No antibiotics or hormones
● No artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors
● No corn or soy
A five-ounce bag retails for $12.99 at Wild Earth’s online store, and currently ships free.
“I worry about the health risks of sugar- and salt-filled treats, both as a veterinarian and founder of the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, and as a dog lover too,” said Wild Earth chief veterinary officer Dr. Ernie Ward. “People can feel good about offering Good Protein Dog Snacks with Koji, which are a nutritious option for our dogs, our environment, and for eliminating the suffering of farm animals.”
“We need new and alternative proteins to feed a growing global pet population, and also to minimize the environmental impact of feeding that growing population,” said Wild Earth CEO Ryan Bethencourt. “Koji is ideal for dogs based on its nutritional profile and sustainability, and used by Michelin-star chefs to add gourmet flavor, so our dog taste testers loved these treats.”
“Wild Earth’s new alternative protein product is such a great example of providing consumers another choice for their pet’s nourishment, while being conscious of the environment,” said Ben Jacobs, Head of Ventures at Mars Petcare.
Wild Earth cultivates koji, an ancient Asian protein, in fermentation tanks, and uses proprietary technology to optimize it for nutritional content, texture, and flavor. Because it is produced safely in a laboratory, not a slaughterhouse, it lacks risks associated with animal-based proteins such as contamination, and reduces the toll on the planet – 25-30 percent of meat’s environmental impact in the U.S. is attributed to pet food. Wild Earth’s koji dry food for dogs is scheduled for release in 2019.

Easy Halloween Costumes for the Dogs by Petkrewe

PetKrewe has so many cute costumes on their website and for dogs of all sizes

Even though it is a fun night for humans and kids, some dogs can get pretty freaked out during Halloween. Strange costumes, sounds and smells might make the dogs bark and get scared. So just to prepare your dog, here are some of the my tips for how to get your dog ready for Halloween!

  1. Let your dog wear the costume a few times before the actual date. You can practice wearing it to make sure it is safe, not too hot and okay for your dog. Give her some treats and takes some fun pics. Take if off after a few minutes and then try for longer next time.
  2. Be careful of treats! Chocolate is fatal to dogs and too much sugar can also make them crazy hyper. Be careful of candies on the ground, on the table, wrappers, and lollipop sticks that can be a choking hazard.
  3. Have fun and be safe! If your dog is scared, tired or stressed – it might bark or bite. Don’t push your dog to the limit and let them have a short and fun time during Halloween.

Pet Nose Pendant Kit

Precious Metal Prints has the cutest new ‘kit’ available for pet parents!  A custom gold or silver nose print pendant. I have been obsessed with wearing this and I love how unique and meaningful it is. I have been wearing it as a ‘lucky’ charm!

First they send you a little kit with 2 polymers. One is blue and one is white. Separately they don’t do much and feel a bit like oily Play-Doh. Once you combine it, it makes a ‘moldable compound’ that will harden. So quickly mix the 2 together and press it on your dogs dry and clean nose then let it set. Next, I sent the nose to Precious Metal Prints and 2 weeks later, I got my neckace.

How cool is that!  Support this small business by clicking http://www.preciousmetalprints.com/
