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.

  • Susan Make sure you're feeding a Large Breed Puppy kibble so the puppy bones do NOT grow too quickly cause osteoarthritis when older, if he's going to be a large breed dog over 30kgs. Your better off...

  • Natalie Alexandropoulos Susan, Your dog's bowel issues sound very similar to my dog's. I've tried lots of food over the last 12 months but nothing has made a difference with his diarrhea. Is your dog's condition treatable?

  • Christine Vanderhaak Does anyone know the carb content of Providore?

    Providore ·  June 3, 2020

  • Edanna Can you possibly mix it with broth or something similar that your cat likes, that way even if he inhales it, it won’t bloat in his stomach due to being pre soaked.
