Why your pet’s happiness starts in their food bowl

Apr 24 2017, 4:26 pm

You hop out of bed in the morning and fill up your pet’s food bowl as they eagerly meow or wag their tail.

Food makes them happy – but are you feeding them the right kind?

With so many pet food brands on the market, it can be difficult to find the right one. You might not realize your furry friend needs to eat healthy just like you, and that the some brands can include less desirable ingredients.

But it doesn’t have to be like this. Your pet can be at their happiest if you make an educated choice, and eating right can help them feel on top of the world.

We’ve discovered a pet food that’s made using certified and organic ingredients – so we’ve compiled a list to show the several benefits of Petcurean’s GATHER food.

It’s nutritious

Yes, your pets have nutritional needs, just like you. With GATHER, you can opt for a pet food that has the best nutritional value and taste to suit your four-legged friend. GATHER is made with certified and organic ingredients. The food is totally free from GMOs, antibiotics, added growth hormones, and artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives. Its recipes contain whole food from the earth and oceans that are soy, corn, and wheat-free.

When you find a pet food you can trust, it’s because you know where the food is coming from. Petcurean has developed a sustainability programme for GATHER. This involved a team researching and partnering with a handful of farmers, growers, and fishers of the highest integrity who were practicing the responsible, sustainable production of quality ingredients. The team behind GATHER visited each farmer, grower and fisher before they were signed off to come on board the GATHER production process.

The recipes are diverse

We all love to change what we eat, try out new recipes and visit different restaurants. So it’s no surprise your pet would like some diversity in their diet, too. And they can have that with GATHER. There’s an organic, free-run chicken recipe for dogs and cats, plus GATHER has a vegan option for dogs made with organic peas. There’s even a recipe with fresh line-caught Alaskan cod. These recipes also give your pet grain- and gluten-free options.


When a company acts with good ethics, it means good things for its products and that’s the case when it comes to GATHER. All of its line-caught cod and krill are certified by the Marine Stewardship Council to be sustainably harvested. Petcurean aims to have the best social practises and the same goes for every producer and provider of ingredients for GATHER recipes.


Petcurean aims to be eco-conscious in everything from food production and sourcing, to packaging. All GATHER canned food packaging is recyclable. Plus, Petcurean is always seeking options to make its dry pet food packaging environmentally-friendly, while still maintaining product freshness and packaging durability. It sources its dry pet food bags from North America instead of overseas, which lowers its carbon footprint. Also, using bio-based plastic lets Petcurean reduce its use of petroleum-based resources by 30% for every 16lb bag made.

GATHER can help keep your pet as healthy and happy as possible – in a natural way.  At the same time, it minimizes your animal’s footprints (and pawprints) left behind in the environment – just another great bonus.
