“The Choice team is proud to partner with The Bear & The Rat, and we’re excited to welcome them as our first frozen brand in our portfolio,” said Bob Sledzinski, vice president of brand development at Choice Pet Products. “Their healthy, cool treats are a perfect match for our retail partners, who already have freezers in their stores.

About The Bear & The Rat

The Bear & The Rat was founded in 2010 by a husband-wife team, Matt and Meg Meyer, along with their two taste testers, A Lhasa Apso, who growls like a “Bear,” and his brother from another mother, a “Rat” Terrier. We make premium, cool treats for dogs & cats. Each frozen yogurt cup contains one serving of In Clover Research’s Optagest (prebiotics & digestive enzymes for healthy stools & less gas.) Our healthy & long-lasting “dog ice cream” yogurt is perfect for pups with sensitive tummies. All of The Bear & The Rat’s cool treats are free of artificial colors, preservatives, corn, soy, wheat, and gluten.
