'' My dog loves it! He was very sick and was losing a lot of weight because of the medication and was always hungry, as if the food did not reassure him. Since eating Wilder Harrier he has managed to regain weight and he is not always hungry anymore. I am really happy to have discovered this food for my beautiful boy :) ''Rachel S.
Frequently asked questions
What are Asian carps and where do you source them from?
The term “Asian carps” collectively refers to a group of four species of carps originating from Asia: Bighead, Silver, Grass and Black carps. Asian carps were imported into the Southern USA in the 60’s to control harmful algal blooms and aquatic vegetation in certain aquaculture facilities, but quickly starting infesting nearby lakes and rivers.
Wilder Harrier specifically uses the species “Silver carp” from artisanal fishers located in Illinois, USA.
What are the benefits of Asian carp for the planet?
By using the Asian carp you are helping to save native species from extinction as well as local fisheries that depend on these fish. This helps to rebalance endangered aquatic ecosystems in North America.
Moreover, they are impossible to overfish (invasive species, unlike wild tuna or other popular fish) and do not create any by-catch problems (for example: dolphin by-catch issue in commercial fishing of tuna).
What are the benefits of Asian carp for my dog?
First off and most importantly, dogs crave the taste of Asian carp! Many people say they taste like a cross between scallop and crab.
Moreover, our Sustainable Fish formula is particularly suited for dogs with allergies and food intolerances. Fish in general are often used for hypoallergenic dog foods, but Asian carp has the added benefit of being very rarely used in pet food, therefore maximizing its hypoallergenic potential (minimal exposure).
Finally, the Asian carp is a full and balanced ingredient, with higher protein content that beef, and a similar nutritional profile to salmon.
Is the Asian carp safe to consume for my dog?
Absolutely! The species that Wilder Harrier uses, the Silver carp, is low in contaminants since they do not eat other fish and are not bottom feeder, contrary to popular belief. In fact, they are filter feeders (collect and feed on plankton). Moreover, Asian carps are wild fish, which means that there is no use of antibiotics and pesticides that are typically required in fisheries to avoid infections.
Asian carps: why are they problematic?
Asian carps are one of the greatest threats to the Great Lakes. This population is invasive and could eventually reach every river and into the Great Lakes. With their gluttonous appetite they tend to eat out other native fish species, which leads to depleting populations and to an unbalanced aquatic ecosystem.
The Asian carp infestation is an issue that is closely monitored and documented by researchers and governments due to its socio-economic impacts and ecological disruption. There exists many ressources to learn more about this problem, notably the Asian Carp Canada website, as well as the Fisheries and Oceans Canada page.
