Pets are a big part of our family! No wonder we want to take care of our pets in the same way we care for ourselves and our loved ones. In other words, we want only the best for them.
In fact, 77% of dog and cat owners say that their pet is a family member "just like anyone else". (McConnell et al., 2017)
Taking care of our pets often starts with offering them a healthy and tasty diet, that will support them through every life stage and keep them healthy and happy for as long as possible. In return, our close relationship with our pets has proven to be highly beneficial for our own health, both body and mind.
Meet the Antarctic krill - sustainably harvested in the pristine Antarctic waters
Krill, a biological treasure with great potential to improve the health of our pets, is a small crustacean from the clean Southern Ocean of Antarctica that makes up one of the world’s largest marine biomass.
They are very important for the Antarctic ecosystem, as krill are the main food for fish, whales, penguins, and seals. Given their huge importance, from the very beginning, our commitment to ensure a healthy ecosystem for all the other animals that depend on krill as a primary food source has always been strong.
That's why, before we even deployed our first fishing net, we entered into a dialogue with different NGOs to take their advice on fishing operations that would have as little impact as possible on the Antarctic ecosystem.
Krill - packed with important nutrients
Krill is a superior source of marine omega-3s EPA and DHA bound to phospholipids. This makes all the difference, as the way these fatty acids are incorporated into cell membranes is essential for obtaining the necessary health effects.
Besides being rich in omega-3s, krill is also a natural source of the essential nutrient choline, a powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin and highly palatable marine proteins.
These essential nutrients make krill a unique marine ingredient with many health benefits for cats and dogs at every life stage. The nutrients found in krill can improve and support a healthy heart and liver in our furry family members. They are important for joints, brain, skin and coat and have a huge effect on the whole immune system and overall well-being of our pets.
