CHILLIWACK, BRITISH COLUMBIA — Premium pet food manufacturer Petcurean introduced several product innovations under its Go! Solutions® brand. The new products include Go! Solutions Sensitivities Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Insect Recipe for Dogs and Go! Solutions Skin + Coat Care Large Breed Puppy and Adult Salmon Recipes with Grains for Dogs, offering three new dog food formulas total.
The new formulas expand upon Petcurean’s Go! Solutions line, which offers a wide range of functional formulas targeting specific dietary needs in dogs and cats.
Petcurean’s focus on these types of formulas aligns with increased consumer demand for more functional pet foods, according to the company. Half of North American pet parents claim they are willing to spend more money on pet food formulas that boast functional benefits, according to a report by Kerry. Additionally, sustainability is playing an important role in pet owners’ purchasing decisions.
“Every pet parent wants what’s best for their furry family members, and this is what drives our team to continually innovate and introduce new recipes that provide both functional and nutritional benefits and that support animals’ overall wellbeing,” said Natalie Asaro, nutrition manager at Petcurean. “We’re thrilled to officially launch our Go! Solutions Sensitivities Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Insect Recipe for Dogs and Go! Solutions Skin + Coat Care Large Breed Puppy and Adult Salmon Recipes with Grains for Dogs, and build upon the success of our existing solutions-oriented collection.”
The Sensitivities Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Insect Recipe is designed for dogs with food allergies and sensitivities. The diet is formulated with black soldier fly larvae (BSFL), which is hypoallergenic, sustainable and highly digestible, according to Petcurean. The food also contains other, limited ingredients to ensure it does not trigger a dog’s food sensitivities. In addition to its functional benefits, the formula also offers environmental benefits with the inclusion of insect-based protein, which carries a smaller carbon footprint compared to traditional protein sources, according to Petcurean.
“Maintaining the health and happiness of our pets is the top priority for any pet parent, and we’re seeing increased interest from consumers who are looking for functional recipes that provide solutions to common dietary needs and preferences,” Asaro said. “While purchasing pet food made with alternative proteins may be new for some pet parents, we love learning of consumers who come back and share stories of their pets with food sensitivities who are now thriving after they’ve switched to Go! Solutions Sensitivities Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Insect Recipe for Dogs.”
Go! Solutions Skin + Coat Care Large Breed Salmon Recipes with Grains is specifically designed for large breed dogs. The diets are formulated with a single source of animal protein (salmon) and specific mineral ratios to help support bone health in large breeds, as well as offer a large kibble shape for bigger mouths. The formula is available in Puppy and Adult Dog varieties, targeting specific life stages.
Petcurean showcased the new formulas at Global Pet Expo 2023 in Orlando, Fla. The foods are now available at pet specialty retail stores throughout North America.
