- Essential, high-quality cricket protein for healthy muscle development, and complex carbohydrates for enhanced gut health and to provide energy for an active life. Cricket protein provides great nutrition – a complete protein, high in omegas, fiber, iron, and vitamins. Crickets are a natural source of taurine and (due to the fiber) pre-biotic.
- Supports better health for your pet with improved appetite and digestion, and vibrant skin and coat.
- Sustainable and humane. Switching a dog from a chicken diet to Cravin' Cricket saves 480,000 gallons of water per year (more if the dog is eating a diet sourced from a bigger animal).

Great for food sensitivities
Crickets are an amazing and complete protein source with all of the essential amino acids that you find in other animal proteins. The protein itself (without additives) meets AAFCO requirements for dogs. Cricket protein contains 3x more protein than beef and 2x more iron than spinach!
Crickets, like other insects, contain fibers, such as chitin, that are different from the dietary fiber found in foods like fruits and vegetables. Fiber serves as a microbial food source and some fiber types promote the growth of beneficial bacteria, also known as probiotics. Jiminy’s partnered with Animal-Biome to study the impact of cricket protein on the dog’s gut. And great news – cricket protein supports a healthy, balanced level of gut bacteria diversity (gut microbiome) in dogs. It’s pre-biotic!
Digestibility refers to the relative amount of nutrients within the diet that become available to the body after digestion and absorption. Both cricket and grubs score above 80 in digestibility studies with dogs – that qualifies these proteins as “high-quality protein” for the dogs.
Great for food sensitivities
Beef, chicken, lamb, soy and even fish are the most common ingredients that trigger dog allergies. Insect protein is an alternative protein for the dogs and we haven’t seen dogs exhibiting allergies to this protein. In fact, veterinarians are already using Jiminy’s in elimination diets (eliminating all known allergens to try to determine what the actual allergy is) because insect protein is not an allergen.
Insect protein is truly a sustainable protein source. Better land use and feed conversion. In addition, less water and almost no greenhouse gases. If you take a dog who is eating a chicken-based diet and switch to an insect based diet, we save 480,000 gallons of water per year.
We say humane because of the way that the crickets are raised, the amount of their natural life lived and the way they’re harvested. Crickets are naturally a swarming species, and like being in a dark, warm place. They’re raised in cricket condos (inside barns) which allow the crickets to live in a way as close as possible to how they would live in the natural world. They are free to hop from feed station to feed station, and can burrow deep into the condos if they choose. Harvesting time comes near the end of their natural life cycle – which is approximately 6 weeks.

Our three dogs love the treats! We get the variety pack, on subscription, and couldn't be happier with the service.
We had trouble finding a food Jasper tolerated well as a puppy. Jiminy’s has been wonderful for him. He’s VERY regular 😆 and loves the food. We love that it is a more sustainable option on top of the other benefits.
My dog loves Jiminy’s cricket and grub food. For the first time I ordered the chews and she chewed it up before I turned around lol Another great product from Jiminy’s! I already ordered treats to give to our pup friends for Christmas because they were a huge hit last year.
My dog loves crickets but the bag I received this time was super compared to the ones in my previous orders
My nephew told me about Jiminys because his dog is allergic to meat. My dog began itching so he sent me some. My dog is extremely picky and like all other food she does not like it. I have to doctor it up and she reluctantly eats it. But I am going to continue to use it because I believe in the environmental benefits.
