We are committed to a C02 positive product, transportation and business. We are well on our way to making our entire production C02 positive already.
Super healthy insect protein
A dog is not a vegetarian that is why we use the super healthy Dutch-produced protein from the black soldier.
This sustainable protein source is a great alternative to offal or animal by-products. Those don't come into our house, of course!
Of course, your dog deserves the best of the best. That's why our kibble contains all the nutrients your dog needs. They are hypoallergenic, rich in balanced proteins and contain all the essential amino acids. In addition, protein from insects is more digestible than standard animal proteins; carefree enjoyment. And not unimportant: all this is also well liked, because 95% of the tested dogs choose Teds.
COMPLETE NUTRITION FOR EVERY DOG
At Teds, we believe in the power of nature and not different packages and pouches. That's why one kibble has been developed for adult dogs of any breed. The basis of the recipe are natural nutrients, essential amino acids combined with balanced proteins derived from insects.
GOOD FOR THE PLANET
Insect protein and minimal carbon footprint. 20% of total meat production goes directly to our pets. And thus contributes to a significant portion of our CO2 footprint. Insect protein production requires much less land, energy and water than meat and fish production.
Therefore, we believe that the time for traditional pet food is over. As true carnivores, dogs need animal protein. Replacing traditional meat and fish with insects reduces the carbon footprint without compromising your four-legged friend's needs. After all, insects have a much higher protein content (70%) than traditional meat (25%).
ALSO FOR SENSITIVE DOGS
Teds is hypoallergenic and easily digestible. The base of Teds dog food is insect protein and therefore easily digestible. This makes it naturally hypoallergenic, as traditional animal proteins are the main cause of food intolerances.

Answer any questions you may have
I find insects exciting. Is that good for dogs?
Insects are super healthy and sustainable. Have no fear: you won't find a leg of cricket or a whole mealworm in your dog's kibble. To make Teds, they use the larvae of the (Black Soldier) black soldier fly, which is ground up after harvesting.
The life cycle of the black soldier fly takes about 6 weeks. In special fly chambers, where tropical heat is simulated, the eggs grow into larvae. These are used as a protein source for making our dog food.
There have been hundreds of studies on the use of Insects in pet food. Our Dutch supplier Protix is one of the world's leading producers of high quality protein. If you want to know more about how this protein source is made watch the video below.
Tip: Ask your current dog food brand for a video of their protein source production. That suddenly makes our food even more appealing 🙂
What about the sustainability of your products?
Insect protein and minimal carbon footprint. 20% of the total meat production goes directly to our pets. And thus contributes to a significant portion of our CO2 footprint. Insect protein production requires much less land, energy and water than meat and fish production. Therefore, we believe that the time for traditional pet food is over.

After all, insects have a much higher protein content (70%) than traditional meat (25%).
We package our kibble in mono-plastic recyclable containers.
Can a dog be allergic to your food?
This is increasingly common because dogs have been fed the same nutrients for years or of very low quality (offal).
Insects are a new protein source and, to our knowledge, there are no known cases of dogs being sensitive to insect protein. Unlike other hypoallergenic foods where protein is cut up (hydrolyzed), the insects in Teds are already naturally hypoallergenic.
Switching to Teds how do I do it?
Switching to Teds goes very smoothly provided you go through the right steps. There are several ways to switch to a new kibble. These ways differ if you look at the kibble you are currently feeding and the kibble you are switching to.
Cold-turkey, overnight immediate changeover, necessary when switching from extruded to pressed kibble or vice versa.
We recommend switching your dog to our food at one time if you go from pressed to crockpot or vice versa. It is important here that you do not not mix the two. It may occur that the stool is slightly different than normal due to the change, this is not serious. Give your dog time to get used to it.
According to the following changeover schedule when going from pressed to pressed or crispy to crunchy. Make sure you still have enough of the old feed in the house to make a smooth transition.
Step 1: 25% of Teds and 75% of the old dog food. The dog can get used to this for two days. After that, you can continue to slowly phase out the old dog food.
Step 2: 50% of Teds and 50% of the old dog food. Again, it is important to let the dog get used to this for two or three days.
Step 3: 75% of Teds and 25% of the old dog food. The dog is now almost completely switched to Teds dog food. Do this for 2 days.
Step 4: 100% Teds 0% of the old dog food. Now your dog is completely switched to Teds dog food.
Note: When switching from an extruded (crispy) kibble to pressed kibble or vice versa, we do not recommend switching using the switching schedule.
Don't change your own behavior when feeding your dog. This may cause your dog to change his own behavior as well. Should you experience any problems, please contact us.
If you care about your dog's health, then you should try Teds. This food contains a unique combination of ingredients that provide a balanced diet for your dog. It is rich in protein, fats, fiber and other important nutrients that help support your dog's health.

My dog is a picky eater, but he loves Teds. I am happy to have found a food that is not only healthy, but also delicious for my dog. It's nice to see how he enjoys his meal. Especially since we also mix it with a tub of wet food every day! Top tip was that from Teds customer service.

It can be difficult to find food suitable for dogs with food allergies. Fortunately, Teds with Bugs is a great option. This food contains no common allergens such as chicken or beef and is made with high-quality ingredients that are easy to digest for dogs with sensitive stomachs. We are thrilled with it.
It's totally like that! Thanks for being a customer with us and for sharing your experience.
As the owner of a dog with a food allergy, finding the right food was a huge challenge. I was looking for something that was healthy for my dog, but also environmentally sustainable. Teds met all my requirements. My dog loves the taste and I feel good knowing I am giving him something healthy and environmentally friendly.
I was pleasantly surprised by the price of Teds Sustainable Dog Food with Insects. I expected it to be more expensive than other premium dog food brands, but it is actually very reasonably priced. If you are looking for a high-quality food that is also sustainable, this is definitely worth trying.
