We love Nuts for Pets products and how they are leading the way in pet care revolution! That’s why we have chosen them to be our Brand of the Month. Within this article, we celebrate this fantastic brand, diving into everything you should know about Nuts for Pets and their paws-itively scrumptious dog products.

All about Nuts for Pets: What is their story?

Nuts for Pets was founded in 2019 in Edinburgh by Alastair and Amelia, who are both passionate about animals and the environment.

Alastair and Amelia noticed that it was difficult to find ethically made pet food in stores. They were excited about the opportunity to make a difference. They have a strong belief that enhancing pets’ lives starts with their meals. So, this was when the Nuts for Pets mission began to create a better life for the 25 million pets across the UK!

Their very first product was Poochbutter, a dog-friendly Peanut Butter with no palm oil or additives. Poochbutter is now a best-seller and a great treat to keep your pooch happy and healthy (but more on that later!)

Nuts for Pets have really expanded over the years with a strong presence across 10+ countries. They also expanded on their product range too, now offering crumbles and biscuits that pair well with their Poochbutter! Not forgetting the yummy Salmon Oil full of Omega 3 & 6 and natural nutrition that can be squirted onto your pup’s meal.

Nuts for Pets is dedicated to improving pets' lives and is committed to sustainability and reducing their environmental impact. This can be seen through their use of recycled packaging where possible, and plastic tubs that are 100% recyclable.

What is Poochbutter?

Peanut Butter is a popular snack for humans, some brands of Peanut Butter can contain ingredients that are toxic to our furry friends. Xylitol, which can be found within Peanut Butter, is dangerous for dogs in large amounts. It can cause rapid insulin release that can lead to hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) and can make your poor pup very sick.

On top of this, regular peanut butter has a lot of fat and calories. Giving your dog too much can cause weight gain and health problems.

But that doesn’t mean your dog can’t enjoy Peanut Butter in a safe way! Poochbutter was invented to be suitable for all dog breeds as part of their healthy, balanced diet. It uses only the highest quality ingredients, with no palm oil or additives.

Plus, they use Peanuts from South America with the lowest levels of aflatoxin. This means not only is Poochbutter mouth-wateringly delicious, but it’s super safe. There’s no wonder our dogs’ go nuts for it!

If your dog loves Poochbutter, remember you can now take it out on walks with you using the Poochbutter Pal. Simply fill this up with Poochbutter and let your dog lick!

How do I use Poochbutter?

You can use Poochbutter in many ways to enrich your dog's life. For example, you can hide their medication within it, bake your own treats, spread onto Lick Mats or Fillable Toys, made into frozen treats, added into your pup’s meals, or can be used on the go with a Poochbutter Pal. Alternatively, you can let your dog have a lick off the spoon or straight from the tub! The choice is totally yours!

What is Salmon Oil?

Salmon Oil is marvellous for pets as it includes much-needed fatty acids Omega 3, 6 and 9! They are super beneficial for your doggo’s body and mind, promoting a healthier skin and coat, better heart health, and boosting their immune system and cognitive health.

Pets love Salmon Oil as it not only tastes amazing, but it also helps reduce itchy and flaky skin, and relieves their joint squeakiness! In fact, dogs enjoy the taste of Nuts for Pets Salmon Oil so much that they devour their bowl of food when it is squirted on top!

It really is that easy to add to your pup’s diet! Just simple drizzle on their food, mix well, and let your pup enjoy the benefits. For small dogs, we recommend a teaspoon a day, for medium dogs: 2-3 teaspoons, and for large dogs: 3-4 teaspoons a day.
