Do We Know What's in Our Dog's Treats? The Transparent Journey of Mr. Bug Bites You've likely heard
You've likely heard the phrase, "You are what you eat." But have you ever stopped to consider what this means for your four-legged friend? Many of us are mindful of what we consume, prioritising organic produce, whole grains, and sustainably-sourced protein. However, when it comes to our dogs, that level of scrutiny often falls by the wayside.
The Mystery of Commercial Dog Treats
Dog treats from the store shelves can be an enigma, filled with ingredients that most of us can't pronounce, let alone understand. Artificial preservatives, colourings, and flavourings are common in many commercial brands. What's worse, it's often challenging to trace where these ingredients come from.
Why Transparency Matters
In a world where most products have become global, it's more critical than ever to have a transparent supply chain. Knowing exactly what's in your dog's treats is vital for their health, but it also allows you to make ethical choices for the planet. Transparency means you can have full confidence in the quality and safety of what you're feeding your beloved pet.
Mr Bug’s Commitment to Transparency and Quality
At Mr. Bug, we take a different approach—one that prioritises your pet's health while being planet-friendly. We are proud to be the first and only 'all-UK' integrated producer of insect-based dog treats. What does this mean? It means we control every stage of the process, from breeding our mealworms on our DEFRA-approved farm in Devon, to making the treats, to packaging them up for your pup.
Local, Natural, and Transparent
We believe that quality should never be compromised, which is why we use only the finest natural ingredients in our treats. Every item that goes into our Mr. Bug Bites is sourced right here in the UK. By being a 100% UK-based operation, we can ensure that we meet stringent quality controls and ethical standards, something that is often lost when ingredients are sourced from abroad.
The Power of Insect Protein
Insects like mealworms are not just a sustainable source of protein; they're also incredibly nutritious for your dog. Insects are hypoallergenic, easy to digest, and packed full of essential amino acids, minerals, and vitamins. They are also rich in healthy fats, providing a balanced diet for your dog.
We raise our mealworms on our farm in Devon, where they are fed a natural diet that's free from hormones and antibiotics. We can vouch for their quality because we breed them ourselves, giving us unparalleled insight into their health and nutritional value.
As pet parents, it's our responsibility to be aware of what we're putting into our dog's bodies. At Mr Bug, we've made it our mission to offer a transparent, local, and natural alternative to the mass-produced treats that line the store shelves. So the next time you reward your dog with a Mr. Bug Bite, rest easy knowing you're giving them nothing but the best.
By choosing Mr Bug, you're not just making a healthy choice for your dog; you're making an ethical choice for our planet. 🌍
