Happy Easter from The Animal Keeper

We hope you had a great Easter!

Earth Day

For Earth Day, we are reflecting on all things sustainability and our favorite eco-friendly products.

Going more sustainable in your everyday life doesn’t necessarily require a heavy lift. We have carefully curated products with eco-friendly intentions from vendors that share the same philosophies we do. We’ve come to fancy these products over the years and think they’re worth knowing about.

5 Reasons Why Your Dog May Be Always Hungry

  • If your dog is constantly hungry, there can be a variety of causes including canine biology, memories of food scarcity, biologically inappropriate diets, underlying disease, and learned behavior
  • The first stop for your extra-hungry dog should be your veterinarian’s office, since there are several serious underlying diseases that can cause excessive hunger (e.g., diabetes)
  • When it comes to dietary influences, ultraprocessed dog food containing excessive carbohydrate-based fillers (grains, starches, and added fiber) can create malnourishment at the cellular level, leaving your dog feeling hungry
  • Dogs who are rewarded for begging and other food-seeking behaviors will continue the behavior until it is no longer rewarded


Delicious, Nutrition, Humane, Hypoallergenic and Sustainable. That’s Jiminy’s in a nutshell. Dogs love the taste of the smoky soft chews. They make for a great training treat, as they are super low cal and each treat can be broken into even tinier pieces without totally crumbling. Crickets are an excellent source of protein, fiber, and taurine and even the most sensitive pets will thrive on cricket protein. Reduce your pet’s carbon pawprint, and start considering eco-friendly for your furry family member!
