About Zeus & Zoey
Why We Started Zeus & Zoey Pet Co.
Zeus & Zoey's nuTreats was born out of both frustration and love.
When we researched the ingredients of the food and treats we had been feeding to our beloved family dogs, we were frustrated by the lack of nutritional value we found. The glossy pictures of delicious real food on the packaging had little to do with the actual ingredients listed. As we quickly learned, most dog food and treats consist of poor-quality feed-grade ingredients, fillers, additives, chemicals and preservatives; all processed at high temperatures, further degrading the nutritional value.
With Canada being one of the most abundant agricultural countries in the world, we can do better. How is it that we are surrounded by farms producing some of the world's best meats and fish, yet rarely is any of it ending up in the bowls of our dogs and cats?
It goes without saying, we changed our dogs' diets to healthy, human-grade food with lots of fresh meat, fish, organs and meaty bones. At the same time, we started to make all-natural single-ingredient treats for them. They loved them, and so did the dogs of our friends and neighbours.
Inspired by the enthusiastic feedback we received, the idea to start a dog treat business was born. We founded Zeus & Zoey Pet Co shortly thereafter.
"Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease in dogs is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies, and lack of physical exercise."
Zeus & Zoey nuTreats | Natural Dog Treats
Right from the start, we made it our philosophy to only work with locally sourced, premium human-grade, certified meats. All Zeus & Zoey nuTreats are entirely free of any additives, chemicals, fillers or preservatives. We also decided to craft all treats and chews in-house, instead of outsourcing the production to one of the many contract manufacturers offering their services. This has allowed us unique control over the quality which is of utmost importance to us.
We hope your dogs love their Zeus & Zoey's nuTreats as much as our family does.
