Frequently Asked Questions

Why are freeze-dried fruits and vegetables better than conventional pellets and powders?


Powders are simply an inefficient supplement delivery mechanism. Because powders are typically top dressed, you end up buying more powder than you might need simply because of waste and supplements falling to the bottom of the bin. This makes it difficult to achieve desired health benefits as it is harder to provide effective, consistent supplementation.
If given the option, most owners prefer treats to powders. However, the manufacturing process requires the use of binding agents to “glue” ingredients together and also involves “steam conditioning”, which is typically used to lower production. Research has shown that the high temperatures (176+ deg. Fahrenheit) involved with steam conditioning may reduce nutritional value of finished product*. This is of particular concern with conventional probiotics such as Lactobacillus Acidophilus; effective digestive support requires the delivery of live bacteria and our lab tests have proven that this strain simply does not survive above temperatures of approximately 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Be wary of anyone selling you “treat” probiotics!
We combine freeze-dried fruits and vegetables with carefully selected functional ingredients using an innovative coating process that enables to deliver highly potent, efficient supplementation. Because the freeze-drying process lowers temperatures, we are able to preserve more nutritional value and guarantee that sensitive functional ingredients such as probiotics can survive the production process. * Journal of Applied Poultry Research, Jun 08




Are your products organic / vegan?


Our products are 100% plant-based and produced using human-grade ingredients in human-grade facilities. Our products are so safe that some of our customers sneak a few pieces for themselves as they feed their pets! While we strive to be 100% organic as well, the reality of our size and supply chain places some limitations on what we can reliably source. Help us grow and we can achieve this goal together!




What is the appropriate daily dosage for my pet?


For bananas, we recommend feeding 4 slices per day for your pet. For apples, we recommend feeding 3 pieces per day. Please keep in mind that our supplements are not a replacement for meals and should account for less than 5% of your pet’s daily nutrition (in weight).
