West Paw Releases Sustainable Dog Treats
West Paw created its first-ever collection of dog treats.
The treats are sustainably-sourced, simple, meaty single-protein snacks, balanced superfood blends and creamy treats, can also pair perfectly with the company's treat toys. West Paw treats include creamy treats (available in June 2020), limited ingredient freeze-dried treats and single ingredient freeze-dried treats (available May 2020).
The limited ingredient freeze-dried treats are available in Pork Superfood and Duck Superfood flavors in a 2.5 oz. size. Pork Superfood contains Food Alliance certified pork from Washington State with superfood veggies, blueberries and probiotic-rich goat milk. It is packed with protein, phytonutrients, beta-carotene and antioxidants. Duck Superfood raw dog treats combine humanely-raised, cage-free duck with superfood veggies, blueberries and probiotic-rich goat milk. The recipe is high in protein and made with farm-fresh foods from the Pacific Northwest.
The single ingredient freeze-dried treats are available in Beef Heart and Beef Liver a 2.5 oz. size. The beef used in West Paw’s Beef Heart and Beef Liver freeze-dried dog treats are American Grassfed certified ensuring the proteins were humanely-raised and sustainably-sourced in the Pacific Northwest. The single ingredients are freeze-dried to safely retain the nutrition of raw, whole-food proteins that dogs need, with nothing artificial and no preservatives.
The proteins used in West Paw's freeze-dried treats are organ meats that include hearts, livers and other organs. While these proteins come from animals that do end up in the human food chain, to be more sustainable, West Paw chose to use high-quality proteins that are outside of the typical human food chain in the U.S. By focusing on using proteins that most people in the U.S. do not eat and are typically waste, West Paw treats bring high-quality proteins to dogs that are nutritional, while keeping them out of the landfill.
