Nature’s Goodness

Nature’s Goodness is a grain-free food made by V.I.P Petfoods in Australia. They take pride that their product is the only grain-free food available in the supermarkets, being available in Coles and Woolworths.

Let’s take a look and see if it’s any good…

The first ingredient is Meat, but it’s not that specific. It’s a combination of poultry meal and meat meal as well as duck and meat meal. This doesn’t scream “quality product” to me as it could be anything and probably is. We also find tallow and chicken digest in the food which ensures the meat comes from a rendering plant where animals are cooked up in a vat to create a really cheap meat source that can’t be sold for human consumption. Your dog won’t complain, but it’s not a quality source of meat ingredients.

I imagine the vegetables and vegetable meal to be sourced from by-products of the food industry that can’t be sold off for any other reason. Again, this ingredient doesn’t tell us this is a quality food, but at least the meat and vegetable ingredients are in the right balance.

Nature's Goodness Dog Food Review

I’d like to see an inclusion of a better source of omega fats, such as a fish oil or even canola oil. I find the food lacking in this respect, and the choice of minerals is poor.

It’s not a bad food and better than most supermarket brands, but there are also much better foods. This one’s in the middle so I’ll give it 3 stars.

If our cat and dog food 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 🙂
