Frontier Pets is fantastic, and if this review doesn’t convince you to at least try a bag then I don’t know what will. Not only is it a home grown Australian brand, it’s one of the closest dog foods to mimic a natural canine diet. It’s one of the best, if not the best, dog foods you can buy in Australia.

Frontier Pets Review

Firstly, the company has ethics. The ingredients are human grade from sustainable and responsible farming. That’s a rarity in pet food. Frontier Pets is also an independent Australian company who have taken on the big boys like Mars (Advance, Royal Canin, Optimum), Nestle (Purina), and Colgate-Palmolive (Hills Science & Prescription Diet) and really stood their ground to make a better dog food.

Frontier Pets is freeze dried, which is a process of extracting the water rather than baking at high temps into a kibble. This ensures nutrients are preserved far more efficiently, making the food as a whole much more healthy and nutritious. It’s a fantastic way of feeding your dog a raw diet without the hassle or risk of actually feeding raw.

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 highly, but 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.

They also offer a trial pack if you want to give it a go, or a huge combo pack for bulk savings.

It’s also worth noting they offer beef tripe strips as an excellent treat, both for nutrition and a great option for training.

Must watch videos!

Here are a couple of must-watch Frontier Pets videos. The first is an excellent insight into why most pet foods are so cheap (you get what you pay for, right?). The second shows how Frontier Pets freeze-dried dog food is made in their independent Australian manufacturing facility.
