    • 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 dogs with food sensitivities and crafted without the use of corn, wheat, soy, or poultry.
    • Oven baked in the USA with pride.  Minimally processed, all-natural, complete and balanced. Veterinarian formulated.  Designed to meet AAFCO standards for adult dogs.

    What's in the bag

    Our kibble is oven baked in small batches. Unlike other kibbles that are extruded (high pressure and extreme heat that cooks away the nutrients) our baking process ensures a less processed food.
    Crickets

    A complete protein and a natural source of taurine, iron, omegas and fiber – it’s prebiotic! It’s also a hypoallergenic, sustainable & humane protein source!

    Oats

    Rich in vitamins and minerals. Soluble fiber that works to regulate cholesterol and all intestinal processes.

    Sweet Potato

    Great source of fiber, vitamin C, beta carotene and manganese. They are rich in antioxidants and aid in a balanced source of energy and blood sugar levels...

    Quinoa

    High in protein and essential amino acids. A source of alpha-linolenic acid with anti- inflammatory benefits. While technically not a grain, a good source of fiber.

    Flax seed

    Contain high amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids. Also high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

    Why Crickets?

    Nutritious

    Prebiotic

    Digestible

    Great for food sensitivities

    Sustainable

    Humane


    Nutritious

    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!

    Prebiotic

    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!

    Digestible

    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.

    Sustainable

    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.

    Humane

    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 GI specialist suggested cricket protein for Loki. Before trying out Jiminys, Loki would never have solid poop."

    Awesome food

    My dog suffers from bad allergies and I have been hopelessly searching for a protein source that would help her. This is it! She loves the food! The food has no bad smell. Her breath has improved SO much it’s unbelievable! I am super excited to tell everyone about this company and all the benefits to the environment!

    It's a hit!

    My 14 month Lhasa Apso loves his new Cravin' Cricket kibble. He eats it up right away and it seems to be much easier on his stomach than his previous kibble (salmon and sweet potato). His stools are more formed and he has less regurgitation. He does still have frequent stools. He was a rescue so I'm not sure if having a sensitive stomach is a common trait for this breed but overall, he seems much better on this new kibble.

    Impressed!

    I was a little skeptical that my spoiled chug would like this food, but he is a huge fan! I was interested in this food for its eco aspect and how it's good for dogs with allergies. Time will tell if this helps his allergies, but I am definitely going to have to keep buying this food cus my little guy LOVES it!

    Good meat alternative

    My dogs are very picky. They seemed to like this cricket food initially but like most kibble, they get bored easily. Now they nibble on it throughout the day and finish up the food before bedtime lol. That being said I switch it up with the Grub dog food which they seem to like more…for now. Their poop has been perfect! No more constipation or sticky poop. I’m hoping it’ll help my dachshund’s dry flaky skin also since this dog food supposedly has a lot of omega in it. I’ll update my review if I notice dramatic improvement in his coat. I am very glad that Jiminy offers the alternate double pack that has the cricket and grub food. The cost was not that bad. It’s actually comparable to some of the higher end brands so no complaints here!

    My dog is obsessed and so am I

    My dog has has had horrendous gas and wet poops since we adopted him. He's sensitive to literally every food out there — including pumpkin. We've tried EVERYTHING, and either he doesn't like it, or it doesn't like him. This is the first food he's actually enjoyed that his belly enjoys, too. His farts no longer clear a room, his poops no longer mush into the sidewalk in the grossest way possible, and his fur is SOFTER THAN EVER. And it's sustainable! God, we are so happy we found you.
