  • Hemp seed oil - rich in omegas.

The grain-free offering from Aussie company Pet Food Australia boasts the novel ingredient hemp oil. But how does the food stack up, and is it good for your dog?

Let’s take a look…

Pet Food Australia Dog Food Review

Firstly, we find a whopping combo of turkey, chicken, and fish meal making up the bulk of the food. That’s a fantastic start (especially considering many big and trusted commercial brands are mostly grains). There’s no trickery involved in the labelling, and we can be assured meat makes up a good proportion of the food as a whole.

We find two more main ingredients, potato and peas. These will help round off the food, add carbs, starch (to bind the kibble), and peas will add protein and fibre. Neither ingredient is in excess, so no real concerns there.

The company boast the use of help oil, an ingredient shown to have a number of health benefits. It contains a perfect 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 which are great for joints, skin, coat, and immune system. It’s said to deter chronic inflammation and cancer, and should prove beneficial to a dog with allergies.

The rest of the food really stacks up to other top brands, with inclusions such as kelp, coconut oil, alfalfa, plus fruits and veggies. The composition is a rather decent 30% protein and 16% fat, which in turn ensures the food is lower in carbohydrates (sugars) than many brands of food.

Also, if all that stuff about grain-free foods lack of taurine causing heart problems (DCM), then it’s great to see they’ve included taurine as well.

Recommended.

I have a whippet that suffers from an irritable bowel so thought this food would be good after reading reviews.
I have 2 whippets and switched both dogs onto this food and after a month I had to stop feeding them this food due to serious heath concerns with my whippet that suffers from IBS. She started to shake, pant heavily and appeared to be in alot of pain every 4 hours after eating this food. Both dogs also went from having normal stools to smelly mucusy ones. I have switched back to my old food that I was feeding them and all symptoms have stopped. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS FOOD

There are specific foods that just do not work with IBS or IBD, foods often high in fat or the wrong types of fats, certain carbs as well, especially legumes due to causing a lot of gas and gas can be very painful.

I’d say it was the latter in this case, the fats used are not suitable for your dogs. I’d also use lower fat foods, around 12-14% instead. Using digestive enzymes and probiotics will help too.

Inside Out is a good probiotic with digestive enzymes, could get the 40g to try out, if it doesn’t work that’s okay cause it was only 40g.

One thing I hate the most with this food is the marketing hype, not every dog will do good on every food, they market it like this is the best food in the world.

Just because it contains hemp oil, doesn’t automatically mean it’s the best food in the world. Lots of dogs react badly to hemp oil, they remove all the bad reviews as well.

What a great company huh? load of bs like most other companies in Australia, all marketing and profit and deleting comments that don’t support them.

The food is also grossly overpriced for those ingredients. Nothing in there not even the hemp oil, is that expensive.

They wouldn’t refund you? what?!? that’s insane, do they think that everyone can just dish out their dollars and have plenty in reserve. I mean some live pay check to pay check, imagine them loosing $190, disastrous.

If it was human products you could report them to the ACCC I think was their name. For refusing a refund. Did you perhaps use PayPal, they might refund you, people said they do that.
