Most commercial pet food you find on the shelf at a local grocery store has been produced in mass quantities. It has also traveled far and wide among distribution centers before it arrived for you to purchase. The food can sit on the shelf or in a warehouse for half a year or more.

Why Fresh Food Matters

Expiration dates on dog food can be misleading. The dates are guidelines, not necessarily great predictors of how fresh the food is. When pet food sits in a warehouse or on a store shelf, its nutritional value becomes compromised. In addition, to make sure pet food doesn't spoil, manufacturers often load the food with additives, preservatives and chemicals. You may not even know which preservatives have been used, because companies don't always disclose them. The damage caused by these questionable ingredients can lead to all types of health problems in your pets, including skin rashes, stomach ailments and in the worst cases, a shortened life span.

What Is Your Why?

Animal lovers want to provide their pets with the freshest and most nutritious food available. Wouldn't it be great to choose a pet food company that upheld the same ideals and values? Pet Wants creates a range of pet food made from fresh, healthy ingredients that serve you and your pet well. Everyone involved with Pet Wants is passionate about nutritious food. We are committed to creating healthy alternatives to the pet food created with preservatives and unhealthy chemicals.

How Do We Do It?

You may be thinking that creating and storing fresh food sounds like a lot of work. But the Pet Wants team is committed to using ingredients of the highest quality and avoiding preservatives. We emphasize transparency by posting all the ingredients we use on our website. Making food with high quality ingredients that are fresh is very important to us.

What Does My Pet Get Out of This?

You wouldn't eat rotten or moldy food. You also wouldn’t want to eat food that used to be nutritious but is no longer that way. And whenever possible, you likely prefer fresh, nutritious meals to chemically enhanced ones. You don't want your pet eating food loaded with chemicals and lacking in nutritional quality either. Eating fresh food helps your dogs and cats maintain a healthy weight. It also helps picky eaters and can reduce food allergies. Additionally, feeding your pets fresh food gives them healthy, shiny coats. You may also notice that they have increased energy and improved digestion. All of these benefits together make for a happier pet.

You love your pets. You can protect them from the consequences of eating low quality food that may have been on a shelf for several months. If you want to have healthy happy pets, and want to feel good about what you feed them, try Pet Wants!
