As someone who is obsessed with their dog, I always noticed that my senior Chihuahua Piggy loves "human" food. I mean, what dog wouldn’t? An endless variety of tastes and textures. I thought, “Why shouldn’t he get to experience this?” And, "What if he's not picky, his food is just boring?" With over 10 years of experience in the pet food industry, I knew that I couldn’t simply feed him my meals, but needed a way to offer him balanced nutrition. That’s when I got cookin’. My team and I brought in expert formulators and veterinary nutritionists to make the product of Piggy's dreams a reality. A 100% vegan, non-GMO supplement that could be added to homemade meals and balance them in one scoop. Plus, our Opal e-cookbook that makes cooking vet-formulated homemade dog food recipes as easy as pie.


Starting Opal is a passion straight from my heart. From one dog-obsessed person to another, I’m so beyond excited to have you here on this journey! Thank you for your support as we make eating fresh food easier for dogs everywhere.
