Why We Love the Pet Food We Carry

Posted by Alina McCue on

If there is an experience that most dog and cat owners enjoy, it's the adorable pre-eating ritual before you place a food bowl in front of your pet. Maybe it includes excited whines, meows or wild tail-wagging. Other pets may be unable to hold their composure as they sit and wait to hear "ok!". Some may proudly carry their bowl around the house to announce that it is, in fact, time for dinner. But, no matter what ritual you and your pet have, it is probably the best part of your pet's day. 

Our Toiffer team believes this happy daily ritual should be paired with the best possible nutrition for your pet. That's why we have dedicated our careers to only offering sustainable brands that take your pet's food seriously. 

We have spent countless hours researching pet food brands, so you don't have to. Want to take a sneak peek into our process? Here is a breakdown of why we absolutely LOVE the pet food brands that we carry. 

What do we prioritize when choosing pet food brands to support?

The proper stamps of approval

When it comes to ensuring pet food brands are checking the right boxes, we always look to the experts in the industry. From certified organic blends to certified humane production processes, we prioritize the food brands listed as products to trust from highly reputable sources

Optimal nutrition

We only support pet food brands that produce quality, nutrition-forward, filler-free meals. We love to prioritize brands that leverage natural sources of essential nutrients and offer a well-rounded meal for all pet breeds, sizes, and stages of life.
