  • Recent Comments Edanna on Ivory Coat Cat Food Review: “I used to love it, I still have quiet the memory of when it first came out. The feeling I got from it, the ingredients were amazing at the time. The ocean fish blend was favoured above all. So many oils! Rusty became so shiny and soft I was left in a WOW daze. Than RPFC took over them and I just knew it would be bad and it was. Damned shame to ruin such a prominent brand, IC doesn’t seem to care anyways or they’d have broken off if they did. So they’d loose a lot of lines of food, but at least they’d go back to being good. I hope that Chinese investor doesn’t ruin Ziwi, I know investors are different to buy outs by other companies. But I’m still worried, like anyone would be. I took pictures of all the foods for dogs and cats, if anything changes I’ll know.Oct 24, 06:29

  • Recent Comments Pet Food Reviews (Australia) on Orijen Dog Food Review: “Thanks for the feedback Ken – noted. I’ve been trying to flesh out the reviews more because it helps with Google. Unfortunately the nature of the Internet, but I’ll try and ensure reviews are less “marketing spiel”!Oct 24, 00:37
  • Recent Comments Edanna on Whiskas Cat Food Review: “Well think about it this way, our version of Crave is the worst in the world. The UK has the best ingredient list, than US, than us dead last. Ours is extremely non descriptive, you have zero idea what your feeding. Also I’ve been researching dog-cat food, supplements, health etc for 10 years and Pet Food Reviews already existed back than. So he’s been around a lot longer than you think.Oct 23, 21:01
  • Recent Comments Pet Food Reviews (Australia) on Ivory Coat Cat Food Review: “Ivory Coat used to have such a great reputation. It’s a shame to see the product has clearly gone downhill in recent years yet still retains some of that reputation.Oct 23, 20:46
  • Recent Comments Jayson Black on Optimum Dog Food Review: “Approx 5 or 6 years ago I purchased a large bag of Optimum dog food. It was to feed a very large Marema, an average sized Kelpie and and average sized King Charles Cavalier. I couldn’t wait to get it home to give it to them. I thought “They are going to love this stuff” But when I put in their bowl they each walked up had a sniff and backed away from it as if there was poison in it (not saying there was actual poison). So I thought “oh well”, they are not hungry. But After two days they still hadn’t touched it and I had to go and buy them the Purina brand that they usually have or they were going to lose weight and starve. These dogs are fairly typical dogs, they will eat almost anything Especially the Marema “Einstein”, he will eat almost anything. One day we went out and came home to find that Einstein had gotten into a bag of flour, he made a hell of a mess but he ate a lot of it. lol. One of them even eats apples, Einstein loves to crack walnuts and eat the nuts. they are by no means fussy eaters but the just would not touch the optimum. I had to assume there was something nasty in it and i don’t mean organic. It must have been some kind of chemical, perhaps a cleaning chemical I don’t know. These dogs would eat rancid meant so im sure it wasn’t that, it had to be a chemical being accidentally dropped into the food during processing or something like that. It made no sense the dogs would not touch it. So I go and get the cheaper Purina dry food and bring it home, put it in their bowls and they scoff it down like super pigs because they have not eaten for two days. If they had eaten in that two days it would not have been much as their bowls were pretty much how I filled them. A few days later I try them with the Optimum again, but nope, same result. they refuse to eat it. We live in a remote area and only have access to local IGA supermarket for groceries. They dont have a very large selection. They do have Optimum but I extremely hesitant to pay that kind of money for something they may not eat. we do have an Ag supplier here, but the biscuit size of their dry foods are all really large (working dog brands) and we need something small enough for our cavalier to eat. the size of the kibble bits are just too big for him with working dog foods.Oct 21, 10:20
  • Recent Comments Jayson Black on Crave Cat Food Review: “Just switched to Crave (will be switching away) because our cats suddenly refused to eat whiskas. The problem we have is that we live in the middle of nowhere and only have a local IGA and I think they do have optimum but I am scared to buy that brand since we purchased it for our dogs once and they refused to eat Optimum dog food. In fact the dogs acted as if they were afraid of it. like something really nasty was in it. So I have always been very suspicious of optimum in any variety. maybe I will have to give it another go because we dont have a large selection.Oct 21, 10:01
  • Recent Comments Jayson Black on Whiskas Cat Food Review: “Flavoring Sachet? I wish this site was around many years ago, like 10 to 15 years ago. But it just so happens that our cats just recently refused to eat whiskers. They had been eating whiskers most of their life. Whiskers must have changed ingredients or something coz all of a sudden the cats just wouldn’t touch it. They still eat their whiskers wet food though depending on what the wet food reviews are like I might not get it for them any more and switch to something else. I now get them a brad called “Crave” but I honestly don’t know how good it is. Hopefully there will be a review of that brand here. Good Luck All!Oct 21, 09:12
  • Recent Comments mel on Trilogy Cat Food Review: “Trilogy wet food……..they claim its grain free but my grain intolerant cat is getting runny poo from it. When asked what plant they use for the thickener they will not disclose. Absolute crap. They do not care about pets otherwise they would disclose for health benefits what kind of plant thickener they use or if any of their broth or thickener contains traces of corn, soy or wheat. Will never allow my cat to eat this crap. Wouldn’t expect anything less from real pet food co.Oct 18, 23:07

  • Recent Comments Edanna on Ivory Coat Cat Food Review: “I wonder why everyone recommends it in stores, there is a lot of those lately, maybe their on some kind of IC payroll or something. They must know of these issues, but hey who cares right? clearly they don’t or they would have stopped recommending it.Oct 15, 05:50

  • Recent Comments Ken O on Orijen Dog Food Review: “Your later reviews don’t seem the same as they used to be. No mention of where the food comes from and more like a marketing spiel. I don’t want to buy food that isn’t made in Australia or NZ.Oct 11, 04:49

  • Recent Comments Edanna on K9 Natural Dog Food Review: “Both Ziwi and this brand have been bought by a Chinese investor. Investors are not the inherent bad guy, like being bought up by actual companies. However I have zero faith in any sort of buyouts nowadays. They’ve all ended in tragedy for the brands. I’m hoping this one will be different as feeding an air dried and freeze dried variety, will be impossibly difficult without these brands. I’m going to go and take pictures of every formula and make an album for them. I will be checking to see if any changes happen over the months and years in the future.Oct 9, 01:02
  • Recent Comments Mikhail on ZiwiPEAK Dog Food Review: “So sad to hear this also. We just bought a 1kg and 4kg bag. I noticed the 1kg bag had a different smell and my dog wouldn’t eat it. But she ate the food from the 4kg which looked and smelled the same as previous batches in the past. FFS.Oct 8, 11:18
