Sustainable Insect-Based Cat Food
We are so pleased that not only have Mars come up with their first sustainable pet food Lovebug made from insect protein, but so too has UK based Yora produced a diet that is both sustainable and balanced for cats and dogs.
This food makes the perfect alternative to using fish based cat food in pouches – possibly one of the most damaging of all the pet foods we can choose! Fish is not a natural diet for cats (they would never hunt fish in the wild), and if cats are going to develop food related allergy issues, fish is a top allergen for cats!
There is also no such thing as sustainable fishing! We have to leave the small fish used in pet foods in the ocean to feed our larger fish or we risk a catastrophic loss of biodiversity in our oceans.
Insect-based pet foods in sustainable eco-packaging (not pouches that need to be returned to recycling depots and mostly end up in landfill) offers one of the best solutions for our pets and as vets, we should definitely be promoting this sustainable company.
