Advocating for change
We're committed to environmental sustainability and making the right choices to protect the future of this beautiful planet. We want to be able to stand back and say we did our bit to be part of a positive shift towards a healthy, thriving natural world.
Our dogs can be a part of this change too!!!
With great interest, we've been following developments in canine nutrition across the globe that have replaced the usual meat derived proteins with proteins derived from a very different source.
At this stage, we all understand the enormous impact the meat industry has on climate change and we're keen to investigate how our shopping habits affect this. Biodegradable poo bags, bamboo toys, hemp rope raggers, insect based nutrition?
The livestock industry continues to grow at a rate that is deemed unsustainable. Alternative protein sources that can be produced on a viable and sustainable commercial scale.
Insects are capable of providing much of the nutrition humanity needs at a lower financial and environmental cost. The greatest struggle, however, will be changing Western perceptions toward insects as food.
Our perception however, is that if it's good for our dogs and it's good for the environment, then we're keen to give it a go.
OMUU is a science based nutrition brand from Ireland. They embrace sustainable change and superior nutrition based on the facts and not the fads! Created by veterinarian Dr. Frank Clarke MVB, OMUU is an insect based complete feed for adult dogs. Snout and About advocate for sustainable solutions to protect the planet whilst not compromising on superior nutrition for our dogs.
We are proud to support and recommend OMUU and warmly welcome this new initiative to Ireland.
