CardINal Pet Care offers Pet
Botanics Simply Salmon Strips
and Simply Salmon Cutlets. They
contain just two ingredients: 99
percent fresh-caught salmon and 1
percent sea salt used in the smoking
and drying process. The high-quality,
delectable salmon is caught in the
coldest waters of Norway. It is then frozen and shipped to the U.S., where it
is perfectly dried and then smoked with hardwood in the traditional Scottish
method to maintain taste, color and nutritional value. Made and packaged in
the U.S. cardinalpet.com

StoCk that’S movING
Sally Adams Trufant, general manager of B&B Pet Stop in Mobile, Ala., said that her top USA-sourced and made pet food is Orijen.
“They keep a tight control over the supply chain of every ingredient they use,” she said. “They source their meats from the region
around their factory (except their lamb). All of that ethical sourcing doesn’t come cheap! But we’ve found that those who buy Orijen
really care about everything the company is doing to bring this unique product to market and are willing to pay for it.”
Sherry Redwine, co-owner of Odyssey Pets in Dallas, likes the Open Farm brand and Small Batch frozen and freeze-dried foods.
“They both use humanely raised meat and try to source locally,” she said. “No hormones or antibiotics were used either. Certi-
fied-humane products can be found in the grocery store for humans but are just now hitting the market for the pets. I was unaware of
the some of the grotesque farming practices that are happening. I am a huge supporter of humanely raised meats now.”
Bette Schubert, co-founder and senior vice president of sales for Bravo Pet Foods in Manchester, Conn., said her company just
launched some all-natural chews.
“We’re quite partial to our new chews, Bravo Crazy Curly Beef Bully Sticks and Bravo Pork Roll Chews,” she said. “Both are all-natural
products, which are sourced and made in the USA.”
