Pet Bistro Offers Healthful, Organic, Human-Grade Cuisine

Pet Bistro, a Wayne, PA-based company specializing in organic dog food, has announced the availability of its flagship product, Chicken and Brown Rice Entree. The jarred food contains all-organic ingredients: chicken, brown rice, spinach, carrots and parsley. 

Equally important is what the product doesn’t contain: no animal byproducts, soy, corn, dyes, wheat, fillers, additives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, preservatives, toxic chemicals or artificial flavors. 

Pet Bistro founder and CEO Rafaela Miett spent a decade cooking up recipes for her own pets before putting this product on the market. Her philosophy is simple: Just as human health depends on food and environmental safety, the same holds true for our four-legged family members. 

“Unfortunately, there is little regulation imposed on pet food,” Miett says. “If something is not fit for human consumption, what makes us think it’s safe for our pets?” 

She believes our pets have also become pickier. 

“If your pet won’t eat a certain food, there’s probably a good reason,” she says. “Animals have a heightened sense of smell, which is why law enforcement relies on dogs to sniff out dangerous substances. It’s not preposterous to assume that pets might reject harmful chemicals in their food as well, such as propylene glycol—also used in automobile antifreeze—and monosodium glutamate [MSG], which may cause harm to the brain, heart and liver.” 

According to the Association of American Feed Control Officials and other sources, pet food often contains rendered meat, animal byproducts and meat meal from the carcasses of sick or dead animals. Content is often boiled and treated with chemicals to kill bacteria, resulting in a substance that must be fortified with vitamins and minerals, all of which may contain additives. 

Miett believes pets deserve the same wholesome, organic ingredients as people—foods that optimize a pet’s chance for a long, healthy and happy life. 

“Each batch is made fresh, and all ingredients are bought from U.S.-based organic farming communities, which helps support sustainable agriculture,” she says.

    Pet Food and Sick Pets
    by: Paul Cohen DVM

    I agree with this lady. As veterinarians we are not well versed on Pet Foods. Like consumers we only know what we are told by the pet food manufactures or what is on the label. It seems the larger the Pet Food Manufacture the larger the exposure which gives consumers the illusion that it must be a great food because they see it everywhere. Nutrition for Pets has been for a lack of better words “guess work”. One important aspect is to keep a log of the pet foods and problems that resulted from that specific food.
    Research ingredients make a informed decision on what you are feeding your pet. Feed your pet fresh nutritional snacks like fruits and vegetables.
    I have tried many different pet foods with my patients not many were without chemical compounds.
    One pet food which I found worked great with our sick pets was Pet Bistro Organic. I researched this product which has absolutely NO Chemicals or Toxins and is completely organic. I recommend this product to all dog owners.
    (I am not affiliated with this company or trying to sell PB food in any way – Just wanted to share that PB is a great product for those concerned pet owners. There are not many great choices out there)
