When researching dog food brands, I like to get opinions from various sources. I trust the opinions of my dog-obsessed friends, my veterinarian neighbor, and the small local pet store that only sells specific types of food and treats.
While we have been feeding our dog healthy, high protein food, I think I might have found an even better option. It is called Petcurean. It is everything we look for in dog food and more. It has a high protein content and is wheat free, organic and sustainabley made.
I got to chatting with the local pet shop worker and we discussed in length about what to look for in a dog food. It is so much more than just the protein content! It is about having few to no grains at all, having organic ingredients and complete overall nutrition. We chatted about Petcurean and he was a big fan of the brand.
I have been using Petcurean mixed in with my dog’s regular food and she really seems to like it! Recently, Petcurean introduced a new food line called Petcurean GATHER. This goes with their other lines, GO!, NOW FRESH, and SPIKE TREATS for dogs and cats. GATHER is their newest and maybe their greatest product yet!
GATHER is a newest of the Petcurean pet food line. GATHER is crafted from certified, organic, non-GMO and sustainably produced ingredients. GATHER by Petcurean is now in pet specialty stores in the U.S. and Canada. The recipes in the three new dog foods are each perfectly blended to provide dogs complete, balanced natural nutrition with premium quality ingredients that dogs love. And humans love that is is 100% organic dog food!
When developing GATHER, Petcurean searched for and found a handful of farmers, growers and fishers of the highest integrity, who were practicing the responsible and sustainable production of extraordinary quality and natural ingredients. Petcurean only uses trusted partners that supply premium quality ingredients. Each recipe is free from GMO ingredients and features a single source, fresh and dehydrated primary protein:
- Wild Ocean: The single-source fish protein in Wild Ocean is MSC certified fresh line-caught cod, pulled from the cold, clean Alaska coast waters. The cod comes from one of the world’s best managed, most sustainable fisheries and is an excellent source of high quality protein, and provides essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Cod is blended with MSC certified krill, peas, lentils, chickpeas, organic flaxseed and other essential ingredients to provide a hearty, healthy meal for adult dogs.
- Free Acres: The chicken in the “Free Acres” is sustainably produced, certified organic and free-run. And, it is the single source of poultry protein. Other wholesome ingredients in this recipe are organic peas, lentils, krill, organic flax seed, blueberries and cranberries to provide dogs with extra nutrition and extraordinary flavors.
- Endless Valley: Endless Valley’s certified organic pea protein and other pure and natural ingredients are crafted into a vegan certified recipe especially for dogs. A plant-based diet can be a great option for dogs. Endless Valley provides all of the essential amino acids and complementary ingredients that provide complete and balanced nutrition. The Certified Vegan Trademark guarantees that Endless Valley does not contain any animal ingredients or animal by-products, uses no animal ingredient or by-product in the manufacturing process, and has not been tested on animals.
GATHER’s certified organic pet food ingredients meet strict government standards for how the ingredients are grown, handled and processed. Certified organic chicken is raised humanely on certified organic feed with no animal by-products or antibiotics, and access to outdoor, pesticide-free pastures.
To further show Petcurean’s commitment to sustainability, GATHER leverages a USDA certified bio-based packaging to help reduce the product’s environmental impact. By using bags that are one-third plant-based, Petcurean has reduced its use of petroleum-based resources by 30 percent; for every 16 lb. bag the company makes, it saves close to a 4lb. bag worth of petroleum-based material.
GATHER really does pet food better than other top brands. Organic dog food ingredients is something I have never focused on in dog food, but I am realizing more and more that it is not only important for humans, but for pets too! I love that they are a very aware company that takes genuine care in their environmental impact and takes pride in the pet food they supply.
I will say, in Colorado I had a little challenging time finding this brand. I went to 3 pet stores and found them in 1. However, I think the more we as consumers realize that quality over quantity is better, we will begin seeing brands like Petcurean more and more. This is my hope!
