At Queen Mary Expo, a distributor open-house, Christine Hackett the President of Petropics was interviewed by Kevin Scuillo from United Pacific Pet. Christine talks about the higher quality of all the Petropics products. Learn more about the features and benefits from the formulator and innovator directly by watching this video.
At the Tiki Cat and Tiki Dog booth, Christine was dishing up food to dogs. Live demonstrations are the KEY to our Tiki Dog success. In the can, our product is compared to other canned foods, aside from the beautiful packaging. Once the can is opened and displayed for the customer to see, smell, taste, and serve a bite to their dog, we have just translated a customer to a Tiki Dog customer for life!
Dogs that "don’t like wet food", "Won’t eat anything", "Pickiest ever", sampled
away and begged for more, resulting in customers walking away with a case of Tiki
Dog. When the customer’s themselves taste Tiki Dog food, when the sales team is tasting
Tiki Dog food, and when the dogs scarf down Tiki Dog food-we know the product is going
to be a great success for everyone.
All pet food formulas are manufactured in a human-grade factory and are truly human-grade quality. All products are made with whole meat from preferred, premium portions of seafood that are left whole and intact verses traditional meatloaf or other mystery meat pates. All meat ingredients are called out in the primary flavor names without mystery or unnamed “ocean fish,” chicken and other inferior filler meat sources.
Our pet food is registered with the International Dolphin Conservation Program (IATTC), which sends a conservationist inspector on the fishing vessels to ensure appropriate procedures are met to maintain this status. The US government does not regulate the use of the “Dolphin Safe” logo, making it difficult to know who is acting responsibly and is truly “Dolphin Safe.”
These formulas' certificate of analysis has been reviewed and approved by many vets across the nation in behalf of “special diet” dogs that have a history of various health problems including urinary blockage, kidney stones, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes and loss of appetite.
Vets treating dogs and cats that are suffering loss of appetite are recommending Tiki Dog and Tik Cat pet food to their clients. Dogs that were on feeding tubes or forcibly fed have been known to return to eating on their own and return to normal activities after being introduced to Tiki Dog.
Our pet food formulas have gone through extensive long-term palatability studies to ensure they are the most palatable recipes on the market for dogs and cats.
Petropics has successfully identified and utilized the portions of each fish and meat source that are the most palatable to pets. Dogs and cats were the authority in the recipe development. Tiki Dog and Tiki Cat NEVER freezes their meat or seafood - it goes straight from the source into processing, which enhances the quality and flavor. There are more natural, holistic, and organic foods on the market now than any other time in history. If a pet won’t eat the food, the healthy nature of the food doesn’t make a difference. Petropics is committed to bringing whole, natural pet foods to market that promise happy, returning customers.
All pet food formulas meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO pet food nutrient profiles for adult maintenance.
Our seafood is caught from our own fishing vessels in the South Pacific - where mercury levels and pollutants are at their lowest possible levels. Our Tuna is caught with short line (which catch smaller, younger fish) to eliminate concerns of mercury. We only catch seafood that is recommended for human consumption by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program. Our products are hand cut and filleted, hand packed, and canned fresh at the source. All agricultural ingredients are fresh and locally grown in Thailand. They are grown by natural human food-grade growers and are tested for pesticides, pathogens, heavy metals, antibiotics and other contaminants. None of our food ingredients are outsourced.
Because our original and core business is wild caught seafood, this is the most eco-friendly logistics scenario possible because we are canning at the source. Sadly, according to Monterey Bay Aquarium standards, fish caught off our Atlantic and Gulf Coasts are unsafe for human consumption and there is not enough supply/support for fishing off our immediate pacific coast to support our food. We use a factory that provides much higher, stricter standards for manufacturing than any other pet food manufacturer in the U.S. including European Food Quality Control Standards. We wanted a human only cannery that does not handle any pet grade ingredients to produce our formula’s which sadly cannot be achieved in the US.
We have a symbiotic relationship with the human market in food supply, sharing the tuna, sardines, mackerel, etc… intended for human consumption. Because we already produce a considerable amount of wild caught seafood varieties, we share the load with our human USDA chicken formulas farmed locally and share the ocean containers. Our products are hand cut and filleted, hand packed, and canned fresh at the source. All agricultural ingredients are fresh and locally grown in Thailand. They are grown by natural human food-grade growers and are tested for pesticides, pathogens, heavy metals, antibiotics and other contaminants. None of our food ingredients are outsourced. We supply all the food safety standards that we currently meet in detail on our website.
We were one of many natural pet food manufacturer’s that were not impacted by the food recalls, especially Menu Foods. Our business grew considerably during this recall period. We only use whole food ingredients, no fillers or manipulated ingredients apart from oil, which automatically removes us from the contamination risks that so many companies expose themselves to when they compromise with their ingredients. You could share a Tiki meal with your pet!
We have some of the most life altering testimonials from our foods. We use only human grade ingredients, we don’t use any fillers, they are all low glycemic index, low magnesium, and low phosphate and have been approved not only for healthy adult maintenance, but also serious wellness diets for animals with CRF, Diabetes, Kidney and Liver Diseases, etc… We haven’t come across one special diet we can’t feed and vets across the country are beginning to get into holistic foods and treatment because of their experience with Tiki Cat.
