Insects on the menu – for dogs

1 Mins read

What sounds like a Halloween horror story for some people is part of many cultures worldwide – eating insects. Insect pasta, burgers, energy bars and more are already on the market. But what about our four-legged friends?

Dogs have a natural curiosity, and on their everyday walk outside, it is normal for them to eat insects. Tenetrio, a company based in Potsdam, Germany, recognises the benefits of insect-based food for dogs, selling wet and dry food as well as snacks.

Sabrina Jaap, one of the co-founders of Tenetrio, talks more about mealworms as a viable dog food ingredient, the myth around “My dog can only eat meat!” and offers an insight into an insect farm and the process of “harvesting” mealworms ethically, while we also have an exclusive taste test with mealworm snacks.
