Know Every Ingredient

natural ingredients, dog and cat food

"Because every Ingredient List should contain easily understood, common ingredients - and not by-products, fillers, dyes, trademarked protein sources, or other perplexing chemicals..."

At Doggiecatessen, we strongly believe in being transparent and honest with our customers about what kinds of ingredients we use to make our human-grade dog and cat food. Our ingredient lists reflect that honesty and are clear and easy to understand. In fact, even a toddler can read ours! Unlike other companies, we do not split ingredients in order to have meat appear as the first ingredient on the list. In Doggiecatessen recipes, a quality meat is always the number one ingredient. 
We are strongly motivated to use only people-quality ingredients in our dog and cat food. All our ingredients come from reputable sources, intended for human consumption only. Even though other pet food companies may have many of the same ingredients as us, theirs are most likely intended for animal feed, meaning they are of inferior quality.
