Fresh is Better– Pet Wants delivers natural and fresh food to your pet’s bowl within weeks of being made and at the height of its nutritional value. Our food is made fresh in small batches and slow-cooked to lock in the nutrients. Unlike ours, most mass-produced commercial pet food is manufactured, packaged, and shipped to a series of distributors across the nation where it could sit on shelves 12-18 months losing its nutritional value...even before it gets to the retail store shelves sitting some more. The shorter the shelf life, the better the nutrition. We make our food fresh each month and sell it by the pound so you can get just the right amount for your pets.
Dogs and cats are carnivores by nature, and their diet should reflect their natural foods as closely as possible. At Pet Wants, we swim against the mainstream tide and avoid ingredients which contribute to pet allergies and health issues. We never use corn, soy, wheat, sugar, artificial colors, animal by-products or fillers.
We control what goes in our product and source all USA ingredients, with the exception of our lamb which is sourced in New Zealand and our salmon seasonally sourced in Nova Scotia or off the coast of Chile. All Pet Wants foods are designed to meet or exceed the nutritional levels established by the Association of American Feed Control (AAFCO) nutrient profiles for “All Life Stages.”
If you’re not sure what the ingredients are in your current pet food, you’re not alone. Start by contactin us and we will be happy to show you the ingredients in our recipes and compare that to what you are feeding now. You can find the specific ingredients lists for our recipes here: ________________.
Food intolerances and sensitivities, while not a true allergy, are quite common and can cause similar issues like inflammation, excess bloating and gas, stomach irritation, itching, and general discomfort. Intolerances are usually caused by specific ingredients (e.g., corn, wheat, low-quality meats, animal by-products, etc.), how the food is processed (high temperatures), food additives, artificial preservatives, and colors. Many of these common sensitivity triggers are caused by mass-produced pet food, which can also exacerbate irritable bowel syndrome.
Talk to us about Gut Health. It's our experienced that poor gut health and what are often perceived as allergies can be associated with each other and are intertwined.
Pet Wants Food Tips: So, whether your pet suffers from food allergies or food intolerances/sensitivities, at Pet Wants, our natural, high-quality and fresh food is free from common food allergens and sensitivity triggers. Our food is made fresh, to order, and slow cooked in small batches at low temperatures to lock in nutrients. Also, we never use corn, wheat, soy, animal by-products, or artificial preservatives. Also, we only source and use the best ingredients and deliver it fresh, within weeks of being made, at the height of its optimal freshness and nutritional value. As a result, our food is very easy on the pet’s digestive system and they are getting all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals your pet needs. And this is critical. For example, if your pet is eating stale food that is deficient of nutrients, their organs can suffer. And the largest organ, their skin, if deprived of sufficient nutrients can become unhealthy and itchy. Not a case of an allergy, just a case of inferior food. Rest assured, with Pet Wants, we offer only high-quality food, treats, and supplements to ensure pets live the happiest, healthiest, and longest lives possible.
Environmental Triggers: Symptoms of environmental allergies can also be itchy skin that causes them to lick, bite, or chew their paws and scratch their ears and rear. Environmental allergies can be caused by factors such as pollen, grass, dust, and mold. First, identify if the irritating symptoms are affected by the seasons. Very often, if the symptoms get worse in the spring and/or fall, the issues are most likely related to plants as they bloom and release pollen. Too much rain in the Spring can cause mold spores and irritation. Fresh, natural and healthy Pet Wants food can help boost your pet’s health and immune system to fight any environmental triggers. Regular baths, ear cleanings and increasing the amount of Omega 3 fatty acids in your pet’s diet (promotes anti-inflammatory immune responses) can help with seasonal allergy issues as well. If the issues are chronic it may be year-round environmental triggers such as dust, or dust mites, which need to be treated continuously.
Always consult with your veterinarian on food allergies or environmental allergies.
