News and Information about Dogs, Cats, and Pet Products

Here’s the thing about Ziwi Peak: it’s so good that your pet most likely thinks they’re getting a bowl of treats for dinner! This is definitely one of our go-to foods for picky eaters. Most pets LOVE the taste and if they eat just a little bit, you know they are getting a mouthful of super high nutrition. The jerky-like consistency is great to use as a food topper or as an entire meal.

 

All Ziwi Peak food comes straight from, you guessed it, New Zealand! We know that might be a little confusing since we usually stick close to American-made food, but New Zealand actually carries some of the highest quality livestock in the world. In fact, a lot of the brands we carry source their lamb from New Zealand for that very reason. All of their animals are free-range, and eat only high quality organic food. They also tend to be generally healthier than animals in other areas of the world since New Zealand is virtually free of diseases like rabies; one of the many benefits of living on a remote island!

Speaking of living on islands, Ziwi Peak fully utilizes both the land and sea to source their ingredients. Fresh green tripe is used to make food more palatable and support healthy digestion while green-lipped mussels add in an extra boost of natural glucosamine for joint health! Even though they only make up about 4% of what’s in the actual food, it’s still good to know that Ziwi is making every last ingredient count.

What’s the other 96%, you ask? Meat, organs, and edible bones. That’s it! No grains, legumes, fillers, or nonsense. Just delicious New Zealand protein that goes through a natural air drying process to become the food your pets can’t get enough of. It’s the closest you can get to feeding raw without actually feeding raw! In fact, it’s so close that we even suggest pet parents who exclusively feed fresh use it as a “backup” for when they’re out of town and trying to make feeding as easy for the sitter are possible.

Whether you’re thinking of switching over completely, using it as a fresh feeding backup, or simply looking to add a little New Zealand flavor to your pet’s bowl, it’s always good to have a bag or can on-hand!

Whether you’re a newcomer or have been with us for years, you’ve probably caught on that we’re pretty picky about what we sell at Two Bostons. If you ask any of our Team Members what we look for in a product, you’ll always get the same answer: we don’t sell anything we wouldn’t feel 100% comfortable giving our own pets. But that’s just the shorthand answer. We love brands that are more than just brands. If you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that just about everyone we work with shares our same core values of improving the lives of pets and their people, and Green Juju Kitchen is certainly no exception.

So what is Green Juju? Well, aside from being fun to say, it’s sort of like a health smoothie for dogs that’s great for their immune systems, joint health, coat, and overall bodily health. Simply take a spoonful and mix it with their usual meal (it’s a topper, not a replacement for what they usually eat!). There are two different blends to choose from:

The “Just Greens Blend“, which contains 100% organic celery, zucchini, kale, dandelion greens, parsley, bison bone broth, coconut oil, lemon, turmeric, and ginger.

The “Baily Blend“, which contains 100% organic cucumber, green cabbage, broccoli, turkey bone broth, cilantro, chard, coconut oil, blueberries, turmeric, and lemon. 

Everything is sourced from local farmers, and every cup is prepared by hand for a little touch of love and care. When you open it up, you’ll even see that you recognize pretty much everything in there, so it won’t feel like you’re giving your dog some sort of mystery mush.

The next question is: will dogs really eat this stuff? Yes! We definitely understand why you might feel skeptical, and the truth is, even we were a little at first, too. After all, when you think dogs you think steak, not organic cucumbers, broccoli, and green cabbage. At the same time, you don’t exactly think kids + broccoli, cucumbers, and green cabbage, either, but we still manage to get them to eat it! All jokes aside, a lot of our Two Bostons regulars have come in and told us what their dogs thought, and the majority were pleasantly surprised. 

Green Juju is so successful because it wasn’t developed by humans who one day decided to give their dogs some veggies and see what happened. It was developed by pet parents with extensive professional experience in canine nutrition for owner Kelley Marian’s dog Bailey, who had just been diagnosed with cancer. Since Bailey was already weakened from her illness, Marian knew she most likely wouldn’t survive the surgeries and treatments needed to get healthy, so she decided to take a holistic approach instead. The fruits and vegetables provided the extra vitamins she needed that couldn’t be obtained from meat alone, and soon, Bailey’s immune system was strong enough so she could get the surgery to be cancer-free. After having such great success with her own dog, Marian knew she couldn’t keep it to herself, and thus Green Juju was born.

That’s what puts the “Juju” in Green Juju. Its a product and brand whose roots go deeper than soil–it sprouted from love and has been made with heart ever since.
