Over the past month, the near hysteria over the impending bacon shortage has become a bit of a cultural phenomenon. But fear not, Freshpet fans! We are here to set the record straight about whether or not this will affect your favorite furry friend.
Freshpet Dognation® and Dog Joy® Turkey Bacon Treats will not be affected
We know that dogs love bacon – maybe even more than we do! Our delectable Dognation and Dog Joy bacon treats are made with all natural ingredients like real turkey, not pork, so dogs everywhere can continue to enjoy that great bacon taste through the potential shortage and beyond. Bring on the bacon!
A bacon shortage would be a pretty good thing for dogs
While it’s okay to give a table scrap to your pet now and again, bacon itself can be tough on pups. The high fat content is difficult for pets to digest, and can cause stomach issues and lead to weight gain. Turkey bacon is a healthy, delicious alternative to other bacon-flavored dog treats, with less fat and calories. Don’t just take our word for it- check out our blogger reviews to see what their pups think of our turkey bacon treats.
Bonus: Our favorite reactions to the Bacon Shortage
One good thing to come out of the bacon shortage craziness: the jokes!
Here are a few of our favorites:
Aporkalypse became the popular term for the coming shortage:
Many twitter-users chided Mitt Romney and President Obama for not addressing the shortage in this week’s debate.
NBC’s hit tv show Parks and Recreation put together a hilarious mock Public Service Announcement about the shortage, featuring the ever-hilarious Ron Swanson. His suggestion? “Procure as much bacon as humanly possible and hide it in as many locations as you can.”
