Having been the partner of a Veterinary Surgeon for a number of the years and learning that in Vet School Nutrition and Diet is only taught to them over 3 DAYS of their training, I was determined to learn as much as possible about Pet Health and Nutrition in order to provide my beloved Belgian Shepherd Dog - Groenendael, and two Rescue Cats the best I could afford.
I feed my dog fresh meat and ZiwiPeak Dry dog food.
Ziwipeak is air dried and contains 98% meat, organs and New Zealand Green mussels.
Ziwi is 100% sourced from New Zealand and is ethically and sustainably farmed.
All meat is FREE RANGE
There are only limited ingredients in the food and fresh meat, bone and seafood are the main ingredients.
It is a totally nutrient dense diet that promotes optimum health for a dog.
No rendered meats are used.
No antibiotics or growth promotants are in any of the fresh meat or seafood
There are no grains, rice, soy, wheat or potatoes (cheap fillers, totally unnecessary in a dogs diet)
NZ Green Mussel is included to promote healthy joint development and mobility and is also a natural source of Omega 3 and 6 oil which is vital for a healthy skin and coat
The food is air dried which helps to NATURALLY preserve meats, eliminates pathogenic bacteria whilst protecting the vital nutrients in the ingredients.
This clever process of air drying kills salmonella and listeria, naturally and negates any need for preservatives, sugars or glycerine.
The ingredient list is shorter than all other dry food as unnecessary fillers are simply not included.
The food is nutritionally balanced and can be fed as the total and entire diet for your pet
Due to the high natural protein and goodness in this naturally and ethically sourced food, it contains more energy and fuel for your pets, so you feed a MUCH SMALLER quantity than usual and your pets' stools are much less, yet they received more goodness and nutrition than the majority of other foods.
Ziwi is available for both cats and dogs and is available in air-dried or tinned format.
It is more expensive than most others but in my opinion is clearly the best dog and cat food available in Australia.
When you research Ziwi dog and cat food, make sure that you take into account the much SMALLER serve that you feed your pet, as they fill up so much quicker eating Ziwi as the food contains everything they need for optimum health.
