Petsaurus pioneers natural pet care nutrition in India

Crafting Nutritious Pet Food With Minimal Processing

Pushkar Ingale, Founder, Petsaurus

Petsaurus, the brainchild of co-founders Pushkar Ingale and Gurshish Dhupar, is a pioneering pet innovations company headquartered in Pune. Renowned for its brands Rawr4Dogs and Pawr4Cats, Petsaurus is dedicated to revolutionizing the pet industry by introducing innovative products that prioritize the health and happiness of pets and their pet-parents.

The genesis of Petsaurus emerged from a serendipitous encounter between the co-founders. “Pushkar, a vegetarian faced an enormous challenge of providing a natural meat-based diet to his ailing fox-terrier,” shares Dhupar. “He was convinced that high-processed pet foods could not be the choice of nutrition as he watched ailing pets at the veterinary clinic.”

Dhupar himself inherits 7 decades of family legacy supplying meats to the Indian Army. The duo embarked on a journey that led to the development of freeze-dried meats and vegetables. This venture, born out of a shared passion for pet well-being, marked the foundation of Petsaurus.

Nature-Inspired Nutrition Philosophy

Petsaurus believes in mimicking nature while drawing inspiration from extensive research on animal nutrition. The organization prioritizes animal physiology, pet-parenting experience, and manufacturing feasibility, ensuring a holistic approach to pet nutrition.

“The use of human-grade full portion meats and minimal processing with cutting-edge technologies like freeze-drying distinguishes Petsaurus in delivering high-quality, natural pet food,” explains Ingale.
