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.

  • Clare Nesdale I've stopped using "Healthy Everyday Pets" for the same reasons you mention, Edanna. At first it seemed great but my two greys went off it. I think it may have been stale. Tried a US brand and it...

  • Susan Hi Look at "Royal Canine - Intestinal Low Fat"- wet & dry vet diet- Pet Circle is the cheapest also look at the matching wet can food, wet food is easier on the liver then dry kibbles, if you...

  • Susan I got a small 250gm bag of "Providore Chicken & Mackerel" to try, its very good quality, it breaks up very easy & I think Providore is better quality then Ziwi Peak, Ziwi Peak is hard carboard...

  • Flora Scott It had the same effect on my hound, but I did re- introduce it much more gradually with her other kibble over a three week period. My girl loves it for her brekky.

  • Pet Food Reviews Hi Gail, did it give your pup the runs when you first introduced the food? Sometimes this occurs when the pup has become used to another food... sometimes pups are prone to diet changes... or...

  • Edanna When I looked it up just now, you'd be better off feeding the family dog Coprice as the new ingredients are much better and contain DHAGold which is a legendary rated product.

  • Candice Josephine Thanks for the information Susan, yes you are probably right as the new brand we brought them has very high % of omega/fish. Which explains the change in their coats. I totally agree too, poor working...

  • Susan The Omega 3 in is VERY VERY low in all the Caprice range, if people are going to feed Coprice start adding 1/3 a tin of Sardines in Olive oil per meal.. Sad working dogs eat this 🙁
