Munchbird's Story: Fueling Furry Happiness, One Treat at a Time

About Munchbird®

Who We Are: About Munchbird®

Munchbird, a family-owned dog treats brand based in Chicago, is dedicated to providing healthy, all-natural, single and limited-ingredient dog treats and food toppers with a focus on alternative proteins. Our products promote dental health, support hips and joints, improve skin and coat, and cater to dogs with allergies or sensitive stomachs.

Leveraging innovative technology, we source alternative proteins from animal byproducts with high nutrient value, such as rabbit ears and organ mixes, creating treats that are both nutritious and delicious. By using these often-overlooked byproducts, we make a global impact by promoting sustainability in the food ecosystem.

Munchbird transforms animal byproducts into high-quality proteins, addressing dietary needs for picky eaters and dogs with allergies, while reducing food waste, supporting a more eco-friendly food system, and offering nutritious options for pets.

Munchbird®'s journey began with a common challenge many pet parents face: a picky pup who chewed everything from cables to bags. This was Kai's new addition during the pandemic. As a devoted dog mom of four for over two decades, Kai was determined to find the perfect treats for her latest furry companion. She embarked on a mission to curate healthy and delicious snacks that her pup would adore. From this personal quest, Munchbird emerged—a Chicago-based, woman-owned brand dedicated to providing wholesome snacks for pets everywhere.

Another concern Kai faced was addressing the allergy reactions her dogs were experiencing, particularly severe tear stains. However, through the process of seeking out alternative protein sources and high-quality dog treats and chews, she noticed a significant improvement in the tear stains within 6-7 months.

Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless he's owned a dog. A dog can show you more honest affection with a flick of his tail than a man can gather through a lifetime of handshakes. –Gene Hill
