What’s up with the crickets?
Crickets are one of the most efficient sources of animal protein, and they're a nutritional powerhouse. They contain all 10 essential amino acids, as many omega-3s and more vitamin B12 than salmon, more iron than spinach, more calcium than a glass of milk, as well as chitin, a gut-friendly prebiotic.

Why should I feed my dog crickets?
Crickets are basically a superfood (see above), and they're one of the most efficient animal proteins (see here). Beef - one of the most common sources of protein in pet food - is the source of a lot of problems. Not only is beef incredibly unsustainable, but it's the most common allergy in pets, can introduce zoonotic diseases, and because quality standards in the pet food industry are shockingly low, beef products are recall-prone. Crickets are more nutritious, more sustainable, and much safer.
Is it safe for my dog to eat crickets?
You betcha. Crickets are a safe, hypoallergenic protein that are considered GRAS per the FDA. Our crickets are bred for human consumption and meet the strict safety requirements set in place for human food.
Do dogs like the taste of crickets?
Oh yeah. Ever see them licking the corners of your house? They're on the hunt for bugs. They love the taste of crickets - as much as it may gross you out to imagine.
