Our Story

Developing Our Vegan Pet Treats
“As a registered dietitian nutritionist and plant-based (and classically-trained) chef, Jackie Newgent developed a healthy baked pet treat for her cat, Baby Duke, after the vet diagnosed him as fat and he was showing signs of unhealthy inflammation. Keri Gans, who is also a registered dietitian nutritionist, was aware of the type of ingredients she was giving to her new puppy, Cooper. So, Jackie made a nourishing dog version of the healthy pet treat which they both loved. And when their furry friends couldn’t resist them either, Peterra Kitchen was the result–to help keep ALL pets healthier from head to tail.”

The Peterra Kitchen Team

Peterra Kitchen Co-Founders’ Story

Hi! We’re Keri and Jackie!

Since about 60% of dogs and cats are overweight, we knew we could make a difference by translating our human nutrition expertise to the pet world. But that’s not where our story begins.

Our personal story started years ago when we met as media nutrition experts in New York City. Over the years, we discovered a shared love for good food, cocktails, animals, and the environment, and a forever friendship was formed.

In addition to our visible roles as nutrition experts, Keri is a podcast host, certified yoga teacher, and health book author. Jackie is a plant-based professional recipe developer, award-winning cookbook author, and friend of Mother Earth. We’re both on the Forbes Health Advisory Board.

As co-founders of our women-owned, Brooklyn-based pet treat company, Peterra Kitchen, we will always provide tasty, organic, 100% plant-based products to help keep pets healthy and promote a healthy weight. And we’ll do that with a mission to positively impact our planet.


(and, of course, Cooper & Baby Duke!)
