Bug Bites - Superfood Treats for dogs
Updated: Nov 2, 2022
We’ve found here at Mr Bug that our treats are loved by dogs – and that’s not a claim we take lightly. We’ve tested with vets, friends and customers and the feedback is dogs find mealworms delicious and that’s because they taste just like beef and chicken.
And mealworms are great for dogs because they contain essential nutrients such as iron, zinc, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin B12, niacin, riboflavin, thiamine, folic acid, biotin, and choline. These vitamins and minerals are important for a dog’s overall health.
We truly believe that mealworms are the next superfoods for dogs. And it’s why we are the only farm to breed mealworms for dog treats in the UK. We use only the absolute finest quality of healthy insect protein in our treats, something we are able to achieve by breeding our own mealworms on our farm in Devon.
As well as the health benefits they provide the environmental benefits of switching to mealworm protein are immensely significant. This is because they have the incredible ability to recycle plant waste materials of low quality into a high-quality healthy feed in a short time frame.
Founder of Mr Bug, Conal Cunningham, said: “It’s also worth highlighting that the grub appreciation that is already bedded down in 80% of the world’s countries, is finally enjoying traction in a historically hesitant Europe where an over-arching ‘yuck factor’ had historically stifled progress. A responsibly fostered mealworm offers more calcium than milk, more B12 than salmon, more iron than spinach, and all nine essential amino acids”.
