variety of functional foods for dogs in tetra packs


Caru is family owned.

Karu, our beloved Golden Retriever was the inspiration behind the brand. Inspired by Karu and solving his chronic health problems, when starting Caru, we worked with a team of industry-leading animal nutritionists to create a complete line of nourishing meals and treats with the health, nutrition, and taste as good as homemade food. At Caru, we believe the best diets for our canine and feline companions are backed by nutrition. Our recipes employ a science-based approach to pet nutrition and are based on the latest nutritional information.

Caru leads the way in nutrition.

  • Caru was the first in North America to produce 100% human grade wet pet food and broths in BPA free Tetra Pak® cartons, which was a significant nutritional improvement over pet grade wet food in BPA cans.
  • Caru is the ONLY manufacturer that guarantees equal or less than a 5:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 in all our Stews and Classics Bone Broths. Other brands are generally targeting 10:1 or below. Why is Caru’s 5:1 Omega ratio important? Because by having a 5:1 Omega ratio, Caru’s human-grade foods and classics bone broths become Functional Foods.
  • Caru is the original brand using Human Grade Marine Microalgae Oil as the source of its Omega 3, as most other brands rely on salmon oil or flaxseed for omegas. Marine Microalgae oil provides the same benefits without the fishy taste or smell. As well, since it is made from plants it allows for food to retain the single protein benefits for dogs and cats that are prone to allergies or digestive sensitivities.
  • Caru’s Functional Foods & Broths are intended for ALL pets to help maintain their overall health & vitality.
  • And Caru helps to support the most common health issues.
