Chompery™, a new line of butcher-quality dog treats

Available across the U.S. and Canada, The Chompery dog treats are all natural, single-ingredient, and sourced and produced in the U.S.


WICHITA, Kan., Feb. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cargill introduced today The Chompery, a new brand of butcher-quality dog treats. Developed to address the latest consumer trends, The Chompery dog treats are all natural, single-ingredient and both sourced and produced in the U.S.

With a broad portfolio of high-quality treats, The Chompery offers products for multiple usage occasions and purposes, including long-lasting entertainment, rewards and training. The Chompery bones, ribs, windpipes and jerkies provide a variety of options that meet the main motivations of treat purchasers – functional, entertainment, training and bonding1.

“Dog owners have so many reasons to treat their pets. Whether they are training a pup, rewarding their dog for good behavior or keeping them entertained while busy, dog owners require the right type of treat,” said Cargill Marketing Manager Kelsie Reuter. “The Chompery was developed with a variety of all natural, single-ingredient products, so dog owners can have a treat on hand that they feel good about feeding their pet on any occasion.”

Pet owners are also focused on sourcing and the ingredients of the products they purchase for their pets. More than half of dog owners seek out treats that are made in the USA1, and “easily digestible” and “natural” were among the most important product claims cited by treat buyers in a Cargill survey. Addressing consumer concern about pet health and treat origin, The Chompery treats are all natural, made with single high-quality ingredients, and sourced and made in the USA.

Pet treat purchases are frequent, and 65% of dog treat purchases are unplanned1. To provide consumers with a new dog treat option outside the pet aisle, The Chompery products will be available in the meat aisle at grocery stores across the U.S. and Canada.

The launch of The Chompery coincides with rising demand for pet treats in the U.S, as pet owners seek solutions to keep their pets occupied while working from home. In a Cargill survey conducted last summer, 90% of dog owners reported spending the same or more on their pet than they did before the pandemic. In a separate survey conducted last April, 18% of dog owners said they were giving their dog more treats, and 12% said they were giving their dogs more chews and bones.

Petralyte Launches Electrolyte and Nutrient Formula Tailored Specifically for Dogs

Petralyte, a new product that boosts hydration and nutrition in dogs, has officially launched in the pet market. The electrolyte supplement is made to deliver superior hydration and added health benefits with the special bonus of meaty flavors. The formula, which has been veterinary-certified, drastically improves the speed and efficiency of water absorption, allowing dogs to stay active and healthy.

Co-Founders Alex Osborne and Akash Appachi realized the need for Petralyte after Alex nearly lost his beloved furry friend to dehydration while hiking in Los Angeles. They thought to themselves that no other pet owner should have to go through this terrifying experience and wanted to create a way to keep all of our best mates healthy. Animals are an important part of our lives, and Alex and Akash have a shared goal of helping dogs in need either due to dehydration or neglect. After talking to multiple veterinarians and pet owners, they saw a gap in the market for pet products that provide fast hydration. Alex and Akash went on to work with a group of veterinarians to create a product that is simple to use and helps dogs of all energy levels get the proper water intake.

“Through my own experience, and the fear of almost losing Bali, I knew right away that there was a need for Petralyte,” says Co-founder Alex Osborne. “After consulting multiple vets we learned that there aren’t many hydration products out there, and just as us humans need quick hydration, our pets do too. We wanted to create a formula that ensures other pets don’t experience what Bali endured.”

Dehydration related to heat stress is one of the most common preventable causes of death in dogs. Petralyte works to combat this problem by providing an on-the-go formula packed with important nutrients. Delivered in a convenient single-use portable powder-sachet, customers simply empty the contents into water, mix, and allow pets to enjoy.  With three animal-favorite flavors, chicken, beef and turkey, there’s a choice for all.

“We launched Petralyte in 2020 during a global pandemic, which is tough, but we felt it was a necessary product. We rationalized that our product was important, and our mission was to help animals in need, so it was worth it to continue investing in the business,” says Co-founder Akash Appachi. “We’re excited to make a difference with a product that is accessible, easy to use while on-the-go, and has many added health benefits.”

The unique formula addresses multiple health needs for your pets and also benefits hip and joint issues, vision, kidney and bladder wellness, and muscle and heart strength. The formula contains Glucosamine to support mobility and joint comfort, cranberry to help promote renal function and bladder health, and Taurine to keep your pet’s eyes healthy, help muscles function better and promote cardiovascular health. Veterinary-certified through extensive research and trial testing, Petralyte is proven to deliver necessary nutrients and maximize hydration.

Veterinarian and scientific consultant Dr. Catherine Hagan, C.V.M., Ph.D., worked with Petralyte to conduct a study on the basics of canine hydration and how electrolytes and nutrients support overall health. The study resulted in a white paper that was published in December 2020, and details what healthy dogs need and why, highlighting the importance of an electrolyte supplement.

“When I first learned about Petralyte I was immediately intrigued. Dehydration is a common issue for dogs and they don’t always show symptoms,” says Dr. Catherine Hagan. “The work Alex and Akash have put into creating a formula that not only solves, but prevents, hydration issues is impressive. I was thrilled to conduct a white-paper study that shows the need for this type of electrolyte supplement.”

As a company Petralyte’s passion is to help animals in need around the world. With every purchase of Petralyte, they donate a serving to a pup in need. Customers can purchase a box of 16 easy to use satchets on the e-commerce site, As Petralyte grows as a brand they have great plans to support animal charities, shelters and veterinarians. Available nationwide with hopes to expand internationally.

The product is used by pulling the small nozzle out of the band and squirting it onto your hand, and when you finish you simply tuck the nozzle back in the band.
