Raw petfood company Stella & Chewy's has developed a patent-pending SecureByNature system to guard against food contamination throughout the manufacturing plant.
A key component of this system is the hydrostatic high pressure process - a technology that eliminates harmful pathogens without cooking out vital nutrients or changing the natural taste, according to Stella & Chewy's.
To verify the efficacy of the company's food safety techniques, each batch is tested by an independent laboratory for Salmonella and E. coli before packaging.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
