Great for pets | Great for the planet

Bugs?! It’s a thing.

Insects and pets. Crazy right? We thought so too. That was until we started to learn about the fab nutritional and environmental benefits. So began Buggy Bix, a healthy, natural, 100% Australian product incorporating all of the goodness of insects and real food into one delicious and sustainable treat. Trust us, your dog and the planet will thank you!

Nutritious & Natural

Edible insects are a great natural and healthy alternative to existing pet food. They are a good source of protein, healthy fats and minerals.

Environmentally Friendly

Growing insects requires significantly less resources. They are very efficient in converting their feed into protein, take up minimal space and emit substantially fewer greenhouse gases.

Dogs Love Them!

Dogs everywhere are going cray cray for our insect treats. Even the fussy ones keep coming back for more!

Lab tested.
Puppy loved.

We are the first in the Australian market to develop dog treats from insect proteins, so we want to let you know that we’ve crossed our t’s and dotted our i’s.

Rest assured all our products have undergone complete nutritional and shelf life lab testing with DTS Laboratories and Massey University (NZ). And we’re also endorsed by the IPAA too. Not bad!

But all that counts for nothing if your little mate won’t eat it. Our first flavour ‘Pumpkin and Pea’ is guaranteed to have your dog coming back for more.

Our story

Our vision is no mean feat:
To reimagine how we nourish our pets.

The idea behind Buggy Bix was developed sitting at the local cafe beside the dog park.

My wife and I were discussing different feeding trends for dogs, population and general food security. Having read about the edible insect industry we thought why not use insects as a protein source in pet food?

After exploring the Australian market, interestingly we were unable to find any insect based pet food products. As it turned out, the edible insect market was very new and no local pet products existed.

This was the lightbulb moment! Why not source locally grown insects and develop a pet food ourselves? So Buggy Bix was born.
