According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, households around the country have a collective 218 million pets, not counting several million fish. On average, a family spends around $500 per year on their pet for food, supplies and veterinary care. Pet food is an issue that takes center stage, since it is something that is such a big part of caring for our cats and dogs. A U.S. Marine veteran who is revolutionizing the pet food industry has been awarded “Most Trusted Pet Foods Company” for the fourth year in a row by TruthAboutPetFood.com.

“I’m thrilled to have won this award for the fourth year in a row, confirming that we have the safest pet food in the industry,” said Will Post, who is a veteran and is the founder and CEO of Hound & Gatos Pet Foods Corporation. “We have gone to great lengths to ensure that our pet food is safe and healthy so that people can feed it to their cats and dogs and know they are doing good rather than harming their health.”

Post explains that it is also critical for people who are feeding their pets dry kibble that they also include 100 percent meat products, such as those made by Hound & Gatos. This will help ensure that the pets have their nutrition needs met, because most dry kibble is filled with unnecessary ingredients and falls short of supplying pets with much-needed nutrients.

Post saw a problem in the pet food industry, whereby the foods were made up of unhealthy ingredients that pets shouldn’t be consuming. Feeling that after 100 years of commercialized pet foods our pets are sicker than ever, he set out on a mission to create a pet food line that was safe and healthy. Inspired by the Marine motto of “Always Faithful,” he carried that same passion and belief into caring for pets and creating the Hound & Gatos Pet Foods product line.

Hound & Gatos has won the prestigious award four years in a row, because of their commitment to quality and safety, including:

  • They are the only global brand that tests every batch of pet food for the correct DNA. Many people do not realize that the meat that is listed on the ingredient packages on some commercial food is not what is actually in it. Plus, oftentimes, the meat is sourced in other countries, where safety standards are not as high as they are in America.
  • Their products are all made from 100 percent meat, which is healthier for pets. Most commercial pet foods have an ingredient list filled with things like fillers, corn, wheat, preservatives and other things that pets should not be consuming.
  • They avoid harmful substances in their foods, such as chemicals, carrageenan, generic livers and flavor enhancers. Most people are not aware of what these ingredients are, but their pets are consuming them in most commercial foods and they can make them sick and unhealthy.
  • All Hound & Gatos pet foods are made in South Dakota in the USA, helping to ensure safety and quality standards are met.

“We have been recognized again as the most trusted pet foods company because of our commitment to ensuring that our food is both safe and healthy,” Post added. “Our mission is to help people around the country keep their pets looking and feeling great and living longer.”

Dubbed “The Original Paleolithic Pet Food Company,” Hound & Gatos offers all natural pet foods for both cats and dogs. Flavor varieties include chicken, salmon, rabbit, lamb, beef, pork and trout. They are also working on an all-natural, safe and wholesome pet treat. Their food is currently available in all 50 states, as well as in Canada, and have never had any of their food recalled.
