Dog & Cat food reviews in Australia

Pet Food Reviews (Australia)

Are you feeding a decent pet food?

Hello, and welcome

If you’re feeding your pet the same product, every… single… day… then you’re probably doing them a disservice.

Most pet foods aren’t formulated for your pet. They’re formulated for profit. This is the reason the food you’re currently feeding is mostly wheat, sorghum, corn, rice, potato, or tapioca (yes, even if meat is the “first ingredient”).

When you strip away the marketing spiel (what does premium mean anyway?), the glossy packaging, the pictures of bright-eyed dogs or succulent chicken breasts, you’re often left with a different truth.

Theses reviews offer an insight into what’s really in the pet foods available in Australia. They discuss what the ingredients and analysis really say, or, more importantly, what they don’t say.

We feed our pets wrong. Read my short blog How to Feed a Dog (or cat!) to find out why.

  • Edanna Don't see why not as that's how the dog version works too, except for large breeds that require actual well thought out large breed food so the poor pups don't end up with severe joint issues later in...

  • aussie bushgirl That's very handy to know. Thanks Edanna. It's a minefield out there, and with my previously raw fed boy now battling to keep anything down, while losing weight, I am hoping to soon stabilise him with...

    Natural Balance Super Premium ·  August 16, 2019

  • Edanna It looks a little like Cherish very little bit. 70% protein from meat is fine if it contained at least 28-32%, 24% means there isn't much meat and that's quiet obvious with the sorghum being first...

    Natural Balance Super Premium ·  August 16, 2019

  • aussie bushgirl Now rebranded, using good quality palatable products. Not sure of its connection to Advanced Pet Care (which I would never feed to my dog), but confirm everything else that Christine (below) says. I'm...

  • Lynne Wolfhart I wish there was a spot for big dog for discussion. I asked the company a few days ago to confirm if its all human grade ingredients and they said yes. They rotate with different suppliers. They said...

  • Edanna Ratings like on Dog Food Advisor are based on the ingredients and % panels, they do not take into account the issues with the companies. Warnings are shown at the bottom of the review, generally when...
