Healthy Summer Fun for FIDO Starts Here
Summer is (almost!) here and FIDO is ready to romp and run and enjoy being outside! Whether your FIDO loves to play fetch with their ball, swim in the waves or run up and down the beach with you, keeping them fit (and their energy level up) is key to their summer fun. Exercise and good nutrition always go hand in hand and FIDO’s friends at Petcurean focus on and pride themselves on providing a pet food choice to help keep our precious pets as healthy as possible.
They are known for investing time and resources into educating their partners at pet specialty stores about the nutritional needs of dogs and cats, food intolerances and sensitivities, and pet food ingredients. And they are also committed to sustainability, transparency and organic ingredients in their pet food. With that in mind, Petcurean rolled out GATHER to pet specialty stores in the U.S. and Canada. GATHER is a new pet food line crafted from certified, organic, non-GMO and sustainably produced ingredients. The recipes are perfectly blended to provide dogs and cats complete, balanced natural nutrition with premium quality ingredients.
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. Those who earned Petcurean’s confidence have become the secured sources and trusted partners that supply the premium quality ingredients used in GATHER. A great example of this is their Wild Ocean Recipe.
Alaskan Leader, family founded and family run (just like Petcurean), operates out of Dutch Harbor, Alaska. The fish they provide for GATHER Wild Ocean is the same Alaskan cod that’s sold in supermarkets and served in fine restaurants. The 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.
Catching cod by longline is one of the most environmentally-friendly and sustainable methods of fishing used today. A particular school of cod can be located, identified, and brought on board, without the damage to the ocean floor associated with some net fishing. Individually-hooked fish are handled carefully, and the minimal by-catch of fish other than cod are released, live. These are just a few of the reasons Petcurean chose Alaskan Leader Fisheries LLC to supply them with their Alaskan Leader® brand cod for their GATHER Wild Ocean Recipe.
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.
