Many of us think we know our dogs better than we know ourselves, but if they could ~actually~ let us in on what they're thinking, they'd probably communicate that they'd like something more exciting to eat... Chippin's got them covered with tasty treats galore.
There’s often a lot of heartache involved when finding the perfect snack or treat. Nobody wants to spend a boatload of money on something your dog turns their nose up at. That’s one of the many reasons why Chippin is a company worth looking into.
Developed and overseen by a board-certified veterinary nutritionist, Chippin pet food and treats use superfood proteins including spirulina, silver carp, and crickets(!) that can be less irritating to sensitive stomachs than beef, lamb, chicken, and dairy. On top of that, these proteins have a low carbon footprint so it’s a win-win for the planet and your pup.
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources announced the name change of Silver carp to Silver Copi on June 22. Supporters of the name change include Chippin, a pet food company dedicated to developing foods that use planet friendly proteins, including Silver Copi.
Their puppy chow is looking to save the planet by eschewing common ingredients like beef and chicken in favor of underutilized (and more sustainable) proteins like crickets, overpopulated fish and plants.
“It’s shocking,” CEO Haley Russell said, “that you see people walking through Whole Foods, putting plant-based foods in their reusable bags, but when you hit the pet food aisle so much of it is conventional meat protein.”
Chippin is an emerging brand of dog food, food toppers, and treats that use sustainable sources of protein and other ingredients to help reduce the carbon footprint while giving our dogs something they’ll love.
The proteins used in these treats create a viable solution without using proteins that often cause bad reactions for pets. Yes, you will find that crickets are a part of this solution, and they work wonderfully!
In this episode of the pawdcast, Karen and Jean chat with Kathleen Wojtowitz, head of marketing for Chippin, a woman-owned small business that’s hellbent on providing delicious and nutritious dog treats and food while reducing the pet food industry’s carbon pawprint.
Think about feeding your dog like feeding your kids. Sure, your little ones may prefer mac and cheese all day every day, but you still try to give them food that’s good for them and (ideally) good for the environment. And why should your dog be any different? After all, canines are very much valued family members.
Your very good boy or girl may not know they're being extra good by snacking on eco-friendly treats, but, thankfully, Chippin's treats taste so good they won't even have to know they're reducing their carbon pawprint to enjoy them.
Today, sustainable dog food startup Chippin announced that it is joining the fight against the invasive species by introducing a line of kibble-alternative made from silver carp, which it says has similar nutritional benefits to salmon protein in that is high in omega-3s while lacking toxins like mercury.
