Press release: SquarePet
Featuring formulations created by its veterinarian owner/co-founder and a family of pet food industry professionals, SquarePet’s unique nutrition promotes high-meat, low-carb recipes. SquarePet Nutrition is excited to announce the launch of their innovative, healthy recipes for dogs and cats.
“We only use ingredients we would feed to our families. Our pets are family members. They deserve to eat what we eat. If we wouldn’t eat it, it’s not in our pet foods,” said Peter Atkins, CEO at SquarePet.
A History of Innovation
SquarePet is proud to continue a proven history of pet food innovation. Faithful to the mission set forth decades ago by Natura Pet Products, SquarePet Nutrition is excited to introduce the following formulas this fall:
- The first meat-free, true vegetarian formula to utilize cage-free, whole eggs as the #1 ingredient.
- High-meat, low-carbohydrate diets made without peas, legumes, lentils or potatoes. If you like the nutrition delivered by raw diets, you’ll love SquarePet HMLC formulas.
- Veterinary-formulated solutions for sensitive skin and digestive support.
About the Founding Partners
In the early 1990s, Peter Atkins (father of Travis and Tyler) co-founded Natura Pet Products in San Jose, CA. He helped pioneer innovations that changed the pet food industry including the use of fresh meats, fruits and vegetables, the use of probiotics and prebiotics and the first true limited-ingredient diet. Most notably, he helped create EVO–the very first high-meat, low-carbohydrate, no grain, dry pet food.
