Frontier Pets is fantastic.
I could end the review there, but let me elaborate…
Firstly, the company has ethics. The ingredients are human grade from sustainable and responsible farming. That’s a rarity in pet food.
They’re an independent Australian company.
The food is freeze dried, not cooked at high temperatures like kibble. Nutrients are preserved far better using this method of drying and preserving food.
For those wishing to feed raw but are scared or confused about getting it right then this is everything done for you. Obviously that comes at a cost, but the cost of feeding a dog properly is grossly underestimated. Many pet foods are cheap for a reason, and that reason is they’re made from unhealthy ingredients which are essentially waste products from human-grade food production.
Let’s take a deeper look at the Free-range Grass fed Beef formula, but consider this on par with the other formulas in the range…
The first ingredient is beef, exactly what we expect to see as the main ingredient. The second ingredient is beef offal and tripe. These staple ingredients of a natural canine diet will offer your dog the nutrition they need to maintain excellent health. The guaranteed analysis confirms a significant amount of meat in the food, with a dry matter protein of 43.7% and fat content of 30.2%, with animal fats being a great source of energy and highly digestible for a dog. We can deduce from the high protein and fat that the food is very low in carbohydrates. That’s fantastic to see, especially with most dry foods on the market being packed to the brim with high-carbohydrate fillers.
We have a range of organic fruits and veggies in the food, including carrots, apple, broccoli, spinach, and kelp. Sweet potatoes are included as one of the best carb ingredients in a pet food as well as a source of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fibre. It’s great to see whole eggs as a complete protein source. Flaxseed is included as an excellent source of omega fats to boost the immune system, aid joint health, and give your dog a healthy, shiny coat.
The only comparative food is K9 Natural which we rate very highly, and Frontier Pets looks better on many counts. Neither of these brands are cheap compared to kibble, but you’re paying for a true-to-form canine diet of raw meats with the convenience of being freeze dried.
Frontier Pets is one of the best dog foods money can buy in Australia. Combine this with meaty bones for dental health and you’re onto a winner. Highly recommended.
If our reviews help, then help us by telling others. The price compare and adverts are our only source of revenue to keep the website running. Thank you 🙂
