Currently, we source our human grade, hypoallergenic cricket flour from Entomo Farms in Canada. The flour is made from 100% crickets which have been given organic feed. We love the work Entomo Farms is doing however we also recognise that shipping cricket flour from Canada is not the most environmentally friendly option. We do this because local cricket farms don’t exist yet! As soon as we can source our cricket flour locally, we will.
WHAT MAKES YOUR TREATS ORGANIC?
Six of the seven total ingredients in Bug Bakes are organic certified. (93% by weight) There is no such thing as ‘organic’ brewers yeast otherwise we would use that too!
WHO HAS TESTED BUG BAKES?
Our first tester was Lyra the leonberger. (the face of Bug Bakes!) Next, her four legged friends.. then.. every shape, size and breed of dog imaginable tested Bug Bakes at events, markets and giveaways. We made sure to test them on as many dogs with allergies, IBS and other dietary related problems as possible.
IS YOUR PACKAGING ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?
Our Large Bags of Treats use starch lined compostable packaging.
Our smaller individual bags are as lightweight as possible but not currently biodegradable. We are working on this!
We use fully compostable mailing materials
HOW MANY TREATS SHOULD I GIVE MY DOG PER DAY?
As with all treats, it is recommended that Bug Bakes do not exceed 10% of your dogs daily intake of food. Outside of that, they can be used however you like! They work as a training treat, reward or bedtime biscuit.
ARE THE TREATS SAFE FOR PUPPIES?
Yes. As long as your puppy is eating a solid food diet, Bug Bakes are perfectly fine for them to eat. Be extra cautious not to overfeed with young puppies. If you have any doubts, always contact your veterinarian first before feeding any new foods or treats.
ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE A TREAT FOR CATS?
We certainly are! Insect protein is the perfect match for cats nutritional needs too. If you have a cat that wants to be an early tester, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
WHAT MAKES THE TREATS HYPOALLERGENIC?
Bug Bakes do not contain any of the most common canine food allergens. The list might shock you! Beef – Rabbit – Pork – Dairy – Chicken – Lamb – Fish – Eggs – Corn – Wheat – Soy. Each organic ingredient has been vet approved and tested on a variety of dogs with sensitive stomachs and food allergies.
