High quality foods are nothing new here at Wilmette Pet. In fact, they are standard for us. Every single food here is made with human grade meats free of by-products, does not contain corn, soy, or wheat, and unnecessary fillers.Open Farm banner

Our newest food Open Farms has all of this, and goes a step beyond by being the first ethically sourced food, ensuring that the animals they use are raised in the most humane way possible. “We source all of our meat ingredients in a way that is consistent with our core value that all animals should be raised with kindness and respect. Not only does this result in happier and healthier farm animals, it leads to a higher quality of meat for ourselves and our pets.”

This means:

  • Proper diet, consisting of quality vegetarian diets free from antibiotics and hormones.
  • Stress free, enriched environment with plenty of room to roam, with clean resting spaces and free access to food and water. Crates, cages, and ties are forbidden. They even ensure that the poultry they use has 6 hours of sleep every 12 hours!
  • During transport, handling and stress are kept to a minimum, and the people involved are trained to ensure ethical and humane handling.

It’s a food that you can feel really good about feeding to your pets!
