A Pup Above is an emerging fresh dog food company that was born out of the experience of a couple and their four-footed dog. The owners were frustrated by the lack of transparency in dog food and wished to provide an easier way for pet parents to know what was in their dogs' bowls.
Their recipes are developed by veterinarian nutritionists and are made using a sous-vide technique to slow cook the food, which preserves nutrients better than other cooked foods. Human-grade ingredients are used, including USDA meats and non-GMO produce sourced from the USA.
Pork - A Pup Above's pork recipe uses pork from pigs that are not given antibiotics or growth hormones, and are not kept in crates. The pork contains plenty of protein and amino acids, as well as important vitamins and minerals.
Chicken - All of A Pup Above's chicken recipes use cage-free chicken from hens that are not fed any artificial growth hormones or antibiotics. They also include chicken liver, which is a rich source of protein and essential amino acids.
Grain-inclusive - A Pup Above's poultry recipes include both rice and oats. However, if your dog has specific intolerances to grains, you may want to select a grain-free option.
Veterinarian-formulated - All of A Pup Above's recipes are formulated and reviewed by veterinarian nutritionists. These veterinarians are board certified in veterinary nutrition and have extensive experience in canine nutrition.
Transparency/Traceability - All of A Pup Above's ingredients are traceable right on the company's website. This allows owners to see where each ingredient comes from and is beneficial for dietary transparency.
