For The Love of our Own Dog & Yours
We created Juno out of the necessity for our own pup, Juno. Using the latest in canine nutrition, we deliver gently-cooked, tailored made, food for your dog, right to your door.
To help dogs thrive through nutrition.
Juno is proof that there is power in REAL food. Her story inspired our mission to help other pet owners give their pups a healthier, happier life. Our goal is to make it convenient and affordable for people to feed real food to their dogs.
We believe nutrition is the foundation of health. Our mission at Juno is to be a voice for our pets. That starts with redefining what healthy pet food really means: natural, whole food ingredients that nourish from the inside out.
As a dog owner there are many things you look forward to when bringing home a new family member—caring for a sick pup isn’t one of them.
Right from an early age, Juno had struggled with terrible digestive issues, chronic skin conditions, allergies and loss of appetite and therefor was on consistent prescriptions of antibiotics. Desperate to help our pup feel better, we tried every kibble and canned dog food on the market, until Juno became very picky and simply stopped eating altogether.
We started to question, what if the food we were feeding our pup was actually making her sick all along?
Every food we tried just kept making things worse and worse for our girl. She started to develop blistering around her face, red itchy paws, a dry flaky coat and chronic diarrhea. Eager to find something that would help, we started to dive deeper into the variety of ingredients used in commercial pet foods and we were surprised at what we saw – meat meals, animal by-products, corn and natural flavours.
When we first made the switch to a cooked diet for Juno, we were amazed at the immediate changes we noticed.
It was challenging to find a food out there that offered an affordable solution that we were comfortable feeding so we decided to take matters into our own hands and with the help of our veterinarian we started to slowly heal Juno’s body with nourishing food cooked in our very own kitchen. Within two weeks, she was a new dog, full of energy, with a shiny healthy coat and a BIG appetite!
Are our dogs really thriving?
After speaking with a number of pet parents out there, we started to realize similar stories, so many of our pets today are plagued with the same issues - chronic diarrhea, allergies, itchy skin, etc. Unfortunately, the pet industry has done a great job at telling us what our dogs should be eating. Yes, dogs can survive off highly processed brown balls disguised as food. But it begs the question: are our dogs really thriving?
The Solution: To Make Fresh Food available for Pet Parents
We teamed up with pet nutritionist and veterinarians to develop complete and balanced meals for dogs that provide optimum nutrition so that like Juno, they can live long and healthy lives.
