Buddies products contain only fresh human-grade ingredients; we believe that these whole foods are the best fuel our animals bodies are designed to digest, simply and easily. If we ourselves would not ingest the ingredients we feed to our companions, then you will not find those ingredients in our products! Our products are 100% gluten free, grain free, and Canadian!
What makes us different? Buddies Natural Pet food sources all of our products locally and seasonally with a majority of our ingredients coming fresh from our own beautiful Vancouver Island. Our products are coarsely ground for dogs and finely ground for cats. All of our products are mixed, processed and packaged by hand for an artisan style end product. Our blends are created from a wide variety of proteins such as Beef, Emu, Goat, Lamb, Pork, Poultry (Chicken, Duck, and/or Turkey), Rabbit, Wild Fish (Salmon, Herring, and/or Tuna), and Venison. Buddies focuses primarily on protein based blends but does use alfalfa powder, celery, seasonal leafy greens, seasonal squash and yams in some our blends. Buddies recognizes that foods high in sugar content can have negative effects on our furry friends. Keeping this in mind, Buddies does not use any fruits or carrots in our products. We do, however, recommend sharing your own home grown raw fruits and veggies with your pups when they are in season!
You may notice that we have a wide variety of products available, this is for two main reasons; Firstly, it is important for animals, like humans, to get their protein from different sources. All proteins have different combinations and amounts of amino acids in them that are needed by the body. Second, if your animal has an allergy or intolerance to a certain protein source it is important that we have different options available to you (and them).
