We began to pursue a raw freeze-dried diet to improve the health of our pets. What we learned was the basis of Momentum Carnivore Nutrition. Dogs and cats are natural carnivores and raw diets have all the inherent nutrients such as: amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and phytochemicals upon which the dog evolved. Our pets began a raw freeze-dried diet and within weeks their joint and bone health improved. They recaptured the vitality of years past.
Toni Maretti (Owner) – “I’ve always had a passion for animals. Growing up, my dad had a variety of animals he raised, including sheep, heifer cows, Texas long horn Cattle, horses, a donkey and of course there were always farm cats. And let’s not forget, we always had at least 2-3 family dogs. As a young girl, I used to always help with the animals as much as I could, and I absolutely loved it! I can remember the baby sheep that we’d have to take home and care for during the night if they were sick, or the cats that would get injured in the wild, they’d come hobbling back with wounds. I was the first to make sure they were cared for and safe. There were abandoned baby bunnies we found one year. We took them in to our home and I helped nurse them until we could set them back into the wild. I even shared my doll house for them to play in. So it’s safe to say, my love for animals has been part of me since birth. After graduating college and getting my first big girl job in customer service, I found myself having zero passion in my career. That is when I decided to work for my dad, in a job that I can help animals and am extremely passionate about. The saying “if you find a job you really love, you’ll never work another day in your life,” couldn’t be more true. I get to make sure my own animals, and all animals across the nation, are given the opportunity to have a richer and fuller life with a raw diet.”
(Owner/Operations) Growing up in family businesses I always knew I would like to work for myself one day. After spending several years managing construction projects for other companies my wife Toni and I decided to take the leap and take over her family business. Toni put me to work immediately with construction projects to increase production capacity. Since taking over the business in 2017 we have doubled our processing and warehouse space. We have implemented HAACP plans and GMPs to insure healthy safe pet food. It has been incredibly difficult at times to be on this new adventure, but I would not change the experience for anything. I would like to thank all of our customers who are allowing me to live out a dream.
I'm sure you have noticed Enzo (golden retriever) in my photos, I have never had a bond with any animal like I do with him. He is my buddy and if you see me around the property here, you are surely to seem him close behind. He has been fed our food and treats exclusively since birth and is thriving. That is a great feeling!
Jeff Maretti (founder) – “I have been working in the meat industry for the past 30+ years. From starting my own meat market, opening an Italian deli, and starting a freeze-dried business. My passion in serving quality meat has been part of my life-long goal as a business owner. I’ve always had dogs and assumed a kibble diet was acceptable, as that is what was claimed years ago. After my last Chesapeake Bay Retriever’s, (Peter) health started to deteriorate sooner than it should have, I thought, something isn’t right here. And I wanted to find out how I could help my dog have the vitality of life he once had. After being introduced to the freeze-dried industry, and specifically raw foods for dogs, I decided to switch Peter from kibble to raw. And almost over night, his health improved. His joint pain vanished, his skin and coat was no longer dull and dry, his eyes were brighter, and his energy level was that of a young pup! After I saw what raw had done for Peter’s new energy and health, I wanted to share the foods I was making for him with all dog owners across the nation.”
