FEED RESPONSIBLY

Providing your dog with the appropriate amount of calories is a proven way to prolong their life. Dogs that maintain a healthy body weight live 5-10% longer than overweight dogs.

Calculating the right portion is critical, as feeding just ½ cup more per meal is the equivalent of feeding your dog an extra 6” sub sandwich every day!

BEST VEGAN KIBBLE ON THE MARKET

I've tried EVERY SINGLE vegan kibble available and Petaluma, by far has been the best kibble my dogs have experienced. They had small GI challenges in the beginning, which is natural when changing their diet, but the GI distress was minimal compared to other kibble they've had. My cat even likes this kibble! It's just the right amount of crunchy, and they gobble it up every time. I do supplement with cooked food as a topper and it's the perfect combination. Their fur is soft and full, and they poop very regularly.

Hi Karina,

Wow wow wow - this is a wonderful review! I'm so delighted to hear that Petaluma has become your favorite - we're so grateful. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and experience with Petaluma. We're a tiny family-run business, and reviews like this are what keep us going :)

Thanks!
Caroline

Expensive

Good, but can’t you bring the price down?

Hi David,

Thank you for supporting Petaluma and sharing your feedback!

We completely understand that cost is a major consideration in a large recurring purchase like dog food. We have gone a different route than the other plant-based options on the market by sourcing organic ingredients and baking our food in small batches, which is still fairly novel and more expensive/time-intensive than kibble.

Baking our food & sourcing organic ingredients are the two biggest drivers of cost relative to our competitors:

1) Organic: We believe in organic for its numerous environmental and farmworker benefits. Organic ingredients in dog food are more expensive than folks would expect who are accustomed to buying organic produce at the grocery store. Baked products lose over 70% of the water weight of the original ingredient (for example, it takes 8 lbs carrots = 1 lb dehydrated carrots).

2) Baked / small batch: Petaluma is baked in an oven in small batches, whereas kibble is produced via extrusion with high pressure. Baking food is still fairly novel and is currently more expensive to produce. Manufacturing baked food takes more time and is less scalable than extruded kibble. We believe the more natural flavor and additional nutritional value (such as lower glycemic index and less fat oxidation) make it worthwhile.

As our business grows, we hope to lower costs and pass on that savings to our customers, particularly as baked and dehydrated foods grow in popularity (and of course as demand for sustainable and compassionate ingredients increases as well).

Thanks again for trying Petaluma - we appreciate your support!

All the best,
Caroline

SLOW IS BETTER

When we slowly introduced Petaluma to our older German Shepherd, we were pretty sure it generated some rather potent gas. So we backed off even more than is recommended. By the time we were finished with our first bag, she was fully on Petaluma and smelling sweet.

Thank you for sharing your experience! We're happy to hear that after a full transition your pup is back to normal :) Slow introductions can definitely be beneficial, especially for older dogs.

We appreciate your feedback and hope Petaluma continues to be a hit with your GSD.

Thank you for supporting Petaluma!

Best,
Caroline
