Fresh produce is great for pets, and it gives them variety and fresh nutrition they often lack in their diets. If you place a container of Pet Salad, Fresh Catnip or Kitty Amaranth by your pets' food, they will nibble on it during the course of the week. Indoor cats will choose them over houseplants every time (they eat houseplants because they crave the chlorophyll within fresh greens).
Cats are by far the most avid wheatgrass consumers, but dogs, rabbits, birds, iguanas, turtles, lizards, and rodents love it too!
Amazingly nutritious, wheatgrass has high levels of vitamins A, B-complex, and C, and loads of beta carotene, calcium, phosphorus, iron, potassium, and zinc. But most importantly, wheatgrass is an excellent source of chlorophyll, a known blood cleanser and digestive aid. If your cat eats Pet Salad regularly, it will never have hairball issues again! Pet Salad also gives your pet fresher breath, a shinier coat, and a healthier digestive system.
Cats go crazy for catnip. They will get excited, drool, and frolic around when in its presence. Some claim the cats get intoxicated or ‘high’ off the smell.
Catnip is an herb closely related to oregano, basil and mint. Its Latin name is Nepeta Cataria and it contains a compound called nepetalactone that causes this curious reaction in most cats, and will keep them coming back again and again! Cats cannot get addicted to catnip and they can’t overdose on it. Catnip is a great way for a cat owner to reward her cat and let it have some fun.
When our farmers market customers started telling us they were finding their cats nibbling their fresh-growing Amaranth microgreens, we decided to offer it as a pet treat too.
Amaranth is more than a beautiful micro -- it's a fresh-growing, nutritous cereal grain that cats love!
As a final note: If your pet is truly crazy about Pet Produce, buy a few at a time and store the extra ones in the refrigerator. They will stay the same height for weeks if kept cool. When you take a fresh container out of the fridge, make sure to give it some water before giving it to your pet. For how to care for your Pet Salad click here.
