Nutrition for Sensitive Dogs. How Mr Bug’s Dog Treats are Hypoallergenic


hypoallergenic-dog-treats

Hello Bug Revolutionaries,


If you're a pawrent of a doggie with a sensitive tummy, you know that mealtimes can sometimes be more of a puzzle than a pleasure. Just like us humans, our fur babies can also develop food allergies to proteins found in chicken, lamb, eggs, and even dairy. Dodging these dietary landmines while making sure your four-legged friend still gets to enjoy their treats can feel like navigating a maze. But hold onto your leashes because we've got a small but mighty solution: mealworms!


Mealworms - Unmasking these Hypoallergenic Superheroes


When you're on the hunt for treats for your sensitive pooch, 'novel proteins' are the secret weapon in your arsenal. These are proteins your pet hasn't encountered before, meaning they're unlikely to trigger any allergic reactions. And guess who's stealing the limelight in this category? You've got it - it's the humble yet powerful mealworm.

Our little mealworms are not just hypoallergenic; they're packed to the brim with high-quality protein, a vital nutrient that helps your dog stay in tip-top shape. At Mr. Bugs, nestled in the greenery of Devon, we cultivate our mealworms in optimal conditions to keep their nutritional value at its peak. We then pack all this goodness into our variety of dog treats and biscuits.


The Crunch Factor: From Farm to Bowl


Our Mr. Bug community often shares delightful stories of their pups absolutely loving the unique, nutty flavour of our mealworm-based treats, preferring them over their regular snacks. But the praise doesn't stop at your dining room. A growing number of vets are backing mealworm-based dog food as a superior alternative to traditional meat sources, thanks to its nutritional value, premium-quality protein, and beneficial fats.

Low-quality proteins can be a root cause for numerous health issues in dogs, such as allergies, obesity, diabetes, dermatitis, and inflammatory bowel disease. Our hypoallergenic mealworm treats, rich in high-quality protein, help ward off these issues, contributing to your pet's long-term health.


Mr. Bug's Buffet: A Flavour for Every Furry Friend


No matter if your pup is a fan of nutty, veggie, cheesy, or fruity flavours, our Bug Bites have something to make every tail wag. We offer a selection of The Nutty One, The Veggie One, The Cheesy One, and The Fruity One - ensuring there's a treat for every canine palate.

All our mealworms are hypoallergenic, making them suitable for all dogs, even those with dietary allergies or sensitivities. Plus, they're not just any treat - they're deliciously irresistible, pleasing even the fussiest of canine connoisseurs. Choosing Mr. Bug dog treats isn't just about addressing hypoallergenic needs; it's a step towards a healthier, tastier and more sustainable revolution in pet nutrition.


Striding Towards a Sustainable Tomorrow


Choosing Mr. Bug isn't just about satisfying your furry friend's appetite. It's about a larger vision - the wellbeing of our planet. Mealworm farming, compared to traditional livestock farming, is leaps and bounds more sustainable, requiring far less land, water, and feed. This means a significantly smaller carbon pawprint for you and your pup.

Additionally, mealworms don't produce methane - a potent greenhouse gas contributing to global warming. So, every crunchy, nutrient-rich Mr. Bug treat is not just a joy for your pup, but also a nod to sustainability.


Switching it Up: Making the Transition


We understand change can be tough - especially when it involves the diet of our precious pooches. You might wonder whether your fur baby will take to the new flavours and textures of mealworm-based treats. But let's put those worries to bed.

Many of our customers share anecdotes of their pets relishing our mealworm treats, completely smitten with their unique taste and crunch. It seems our carefully crafted recipe hits the spot for our furry customers, regardless of their breed or size.

Besides the taste, our mealworm treats are packed with high-quality protein and essential nutrients that help your pet thrive. Combining this nutritional edge with the eco-friendly aspect of our production process, switching to Mr. Bugs is a step towards a healthier pet and a healthier planet. It may seem daunting, but change is definitely worth it when it brings benefits on multiple fronts.



The world of dog allergies can be complicated, but with Mr. Bug, it doesn't have to be. Our hypoallergenic mealworm-based treats are a solution that serves dogs with dietary sensitivities while delighting all pooches, no matter their diet. What's more, these treats are as good for the environment as they are for your pet's health.

As we inch towards the finish line of this discussion, remember that shifting to hypoallergenic, mealworm-based treats is an easy, sustainable, and healthy choice that can have a big impact on your dog's life. So, join the bug revolution with Mr. Bug. Let's take steps towards a future where every tail wags with joy at mealtime, and every pawrent can breathe easy knowing they're doing their part for the planet.
