    Our Bailey loves food and is not super picky but we have noticed a big difference in her with this food, she gets super excited about this food, but chews it, used to gulp her old food and we’d have to watch her and get her to slow down. She is not stinky like she used to be, rarely notice her flatulence anymore. Also I love that this is more sustainable food, and good for the environment as well as for my dog.

  3. Niamh C.

    Happy to find this more sustainable option for dog food (although there is still some chicken in there!). Would love to see it on sale in pet shops. Quite expensive so feeding Bonnie 1/4 Omuu and 3/4 regular food for now – it’s a start!

    • Dr. Frank

      Hi Niamh, thank you for the review. Omuu does use chicken fat in the recipe for palatability. During a feeding trial it was shown that 100% of dogs preferred the taste of chicken fat compared to insect fat. There are so much health benefits in an Omuu diet, I really wanted to make sure dogs preferred the taste of it. If your dog is allergic to chicken then please do not be concerned as the fats do not contain any source of chicken protein. After all, it is the protein sources in your dog food which causes allergy flare ups.
      In relation to the cost of Omuu, there are a number of reasons for this so please allow me to explain. Insect protein as a whole is actually more expensive than ‘animal and meat derivatives’ which usually goes into conventional pet food. The black soldier fly larvae are processed whole which means we are getting their full nutritional benefits. Insect protein is actually a premium protein source. They are highly concentrated in amino acids when compared to more traditional meat. They also are rich in vitamins and minerals (they contain more iron than spinach). They also have unique natural anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory benefits which other protein sources do not have. Currently there aren’t many black soldier fly farms in Europe which also contributes to a more expensive price (supply and demand).
      Omuu uses recyclable packaging which comes at a higher price. Our packaging is 100% recyclable since we use the same type of plastic for the inner protective layer as the outside layer. Even our zipper uses the same type of plastic. It would have been much cheaper to use an inner metallic layer and a different type of plastic, but we did not want to compromise on the recyclability aspect of our packaging.
      Omuu also donates €1 from the profits of every purchase to an environmental/conservation charity. We will keep you updated online once we make our first donation so please stay tuned for this. The first conservation charity we will be supporting is known as AmazonShelter which rescues and rehabilitates endangered animals in the Amazon rainforest left homeless due to deforestation or by the illegal pet trade. I have personally volunteered here as a Veterinary Surgeon and they are doing incredible work (https://amazonshelter.org/).
      Finally I have also added ingredients into my Omuu food which would be more specific to Veterinary diets which also contributes towards the price. Such as a dental protectant, higher antioxidant levels to help protect your dogs internal organs and higher omega 3 levels to help your dogs skin. I feel very strongly about the health of dogs and I really want to contribute towards a better nutrition for their overall health and not just the lowest nutritional standards.
      I definitely hope that in the future insect protein will become much more accessible. Hopefully this has helped clarify our pricing at Omuu. We pride ourselves in being a transparent petfood company so if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.

      Kind regards,
      Dr. Frank

    This food has made a dramatic difference to my dogs ongoing skin sensitivities. Previously had I changed his prescription diet to any other sensitivity food he would get a flare up. Since being on Omuu, he has that lovely pink puppy belly back! Not bad for a 10 year old! I’m delighted with the improvement and he’s delighted with his tasty new grub!

  5. Philomena W.

    Paws is a very happy on Omuu, full of beans little jack, apart from the grey around her wee nose you’d think she was a young one again.

    A few months ago I started my Shichon dog on this insect protein food. I was looking for a good quality food and I read all the good reviews about Omuu. Alice certainly loves it, it doesn’t smell bad and it’s a good size kibble. I’m sticking with it and I would definitely recommend it.

  7. Tony

    Lola is 14yrs old and has been on Omuu Adult for about 4mths. She loves them and they have definitely had a positive impact on her arthritis enabling her to take longer walks than she had been previously able for. I could not recommend this product enough. Thank you Dr Frank

  8. Katherine

    My dog absolutely loves it and I love that it’s good for the planet

  9. Cathal O Connor

    Joni (Cockapoo) was a very fussy eater during her first year. We tried many different brands, but they were short lived. Joni and her owners are very pleased with the quality of product, the speed of delivery and the fact that sustainability is a key value of the company. Joni was a bit under weight but is at a healthy weight now, and full of life. We prefer to support local where we can, and the fact delivery is quick it means we don’t run out!
