If Petbarn (or City Farmers) is your pet store of choice, then you’re probably wondering how good Providore is (especially given the price tag $$$).
The good news is it’s up there in the realms of ZiwiPeak, boasting a whopping 93% meat, with absolutely no fillers (no grains, pulse crops, or potatoes). Also keeping in trend with Ziwi and other NZ pet foods it also contains the wonderful green-lipped mussels, a fantastic source of omegas, chondroitin, and glucosamine for joint health and overall well being (plus a glossy coat).
Being air dried, the food will retain much more nutrients than any kibble baked at high temperatures. This makes for a very species-appropriate diet.
It’s complete with organs and bones, all rich in the right nutrients. Even the ingredients lower down the list are good – parsley, chicory, kelp, flaxseed, and fish oil. It’s all very very good, and would likely lead to a very healthy pet.
So is it expensive? Well, yes, especially if you have big hungry dogs. I know if I fed this consistently to my two Border Collies I’d be bankrupt by Christmas. This is the reason why these foods are often advertised as a complete diet or a topper. Simply adding this to a diet, or rotation, or even as a treat, will certainly boost the health of your dog. If you have a small dog, or a ferret for that matter, then this may well be a viable option!
Another way of looking at it – is this food really expensive, or are other brands really cheap because they’re made with stuff your dog doesn’t need?
Highly recommended (especially if you’re rich).
If this has helped you please take the time to share it to other Australian pet owners. Thank you 🙂
