Do you use HPP (High Pressure Processing) on your packaging?


No, we don't.

HPP - High Pressure Processing is a non-thermal food preservation technique that kills microorganisms that can cause diseases or spoil food. It uses intense pressure for a certain time and has minimal effects on taste, texture, appearance, or nutritional values. At Big Dog, we don't have the need to use this process as our food is frozen.

Are your plastic pouches BPA-free?


Yes, the plastic used to package our patties is BPA-free.

Are your probiotics microencapsulated?


Absolutely! Microencapsulation plays an important role in protecting probiotic bacteria from the degradation that the digestive system was designed to do. It ensures they can stay viable through to the colon and, most importantly, get absorbed and benefit the pet’s health the way they are intended.
