Great for food sensitivities
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!
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!
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 goldendoodle just love his Jiminy's dog food. Since being on this food he has no issues with any kinds of stomach problems or ear infections.
Our Shiloh Shepherd Fergus loves this food, and we're pleased to buy dog food that isn't a product of industrial cattle or pig or chicken or salmon farms. Thanks for this nutritious, sustainable food!
My poor dog was allergic to everything and most proteins. So thankful I found Jiminys. She loves the food and treats and she doesn't have hives. Thank you Jiminy's💓
I am extremely happy to have found the diets that do not have factory farming animals included. I found the treats at petco and then looked up the company and ordered the food right away. I’m slowly introducing it with their old food and it’s going well. My dogs really like it!
My plan is to rotate the diets and only add fresh treats (carrots, green beans, pepper, cucumber). So far it’s working great!
My 8 year old girl was dx with hip dysplasia and knee problems a year ago and could barely move at the time, which was very scary for me but extremely painful for her. The vet suggested that she’d lose some weight to see if that’d help and that’s when I decided to look into another food option, that would be healthier and anti-inflammatory. That’s when I learned about Jiminy’s cricket protein based food and slowly switched from an all meat based, highly processed diet. I need to state that sustainability and eliminating meat was exciting since I’ve been a vegan for a long time, very concerned about the state and future of our planet and doing my part. FFW to today and Junie has never been healthier! After switching to Jiminy’s, she started to feel better, began to walk again and carefully worked up to longer distances, all without any more pain meds. Today, she’s able to walk 2-3 miles without a problem and is almost as energetic as she was as a puppy. Another thing I noticed was that after starting Jiminy’s, her stools were suddenly consistently firm and regular, something that wasn’t the case before. I can only attribute the positive changes to her health to switching her food from a meat based, supposedly great and expensive brand, to a cricket and grub diet plus adding hip and joint supplements. She was able to lose weight but not due to restricting her calorie intake but because she could finally walk, run and play again, and maybe because her GI tract was finally functioning properly. I’m not a scientist or vet and can’t back my claims scientifically, but I observed her quality of life improving over a year’s time, which surprised even her vet. Thank you, Jiminy’s, for making a sustainable, humane and healthy food that aided in Junie’s recovery and return to mobility.
