Because Animals, a Canadian company that makes plant-based and cultured pet foods, has added a new flavor to its range of dog biscuits called Pumpkin Noochies +. The cookies are made with pumpkin and nutritional yeast.
They also contain beta-glucan, which has been shown to boost immunity, as well as barley, applesauce, maple syrup, and coconut oil. They are available on the company’s website and from some pet dealers.
Because Animals recently redesigned its e-commerce website and redesigned its packaging made from recycled water bottles. It also updated its logo and added a comma to the company name.

Animals won the Purina Pet Care Innovation Award last year for $ 10,000 in business mentoring and a bootcamp for the Pet Care Business Accelerator. In a 2019 interview with Vegconomist, Co-Founder and CEO Dr. Shannon Falconer, cultured meat is “a safer and more nutritious alternative to food made from animal meat.”
Pet-free pet food is a growing market and companies in this area are increasingly successful. In the UK, the plant-based pet food company THE PACK has attracted a large number of investors, as has Bond Pet Foods in the US.
“Pumpkin Noochies + are loaded with healthy ingredients, but we think yeast-derived beta-glucan is a magical ingredient for immunity and promoting overall physical health,” said Falconer. “Perhaps more importantly, dogs love the winning combination of umami made from nutritional yeast and the sweetness of maple syrup paired with apples, pumpkin, and barley.”
