  • Sarah on Healthy Everyday Pets Dog Food Review: “Following up from my last post. I kept persevering with this food and both of my dogs kept having issues to the point where my eldest dog ended up VERY sick and at the Vet. Turns out this food has given her liver toxicity and caused pancreatitis. I immediately ceased feeding the food and have kept a sample which I am looking to have sampled for toxicity. I contacted the makers of the food and haven’t had a single response back. (Its been 5 weeks now) Which is pretty disgusting as I was very polite and calm when contacting them. I’m disappointed and angry now and do not recommend using this brand.Jun 30, 13:58
  • Edanna on Prime100 SPD Air Dog Food Review: “I got the roo and duck from Habitat. My two do have smell, the duck smells a bit like it’s spoiled and the roo well it smells of rosemary. My dogs hate rosemary. So far they’ve eagerly eaten the duck 1 time and than proceeded to leave it completely untouched for 2 days. I’ve put the roo on the plate regardless and it’s also gone untouched. The roo was actually completely untouched, not even a taste. This was when I took it out of the bag and actually offered it. They sniffed it and backed away. I put it down on the ground and they ignored it completely. I’m going to ask Habitat if I can send it back for a refund and get like $50 or so back from them. Sending back is not free, it’ll be $15-$20 at least. If only I could sell it, but people are not that open to buying opened foods. Well the roo isn’t opened, the one I opened was the sample. I’m going to persist for another week or two and lower the choices available on the plate to two air dried not 4. I will see how that goes. But I reckon it won’t change anything, they’ll just eat around it. I had high hopes as everyones dogs either liked it, loved it or were sick on it. But mine unfortunately hate it instead. That’s umm really bad though as that’s 1 extra source of variety down the toilet. The other being Kiwi whose foods lately have been unappetising for my two. Turning rock hard despite containing glycerin to keep them soft. I may try the chicken down the track, probably not the lamb though. The puppy one not the lamb and rosemary one. I’m honestly not expecting much from that future flavour test though. There’s just something about them that’s just unappetising. I don’t think a meat change will help with that as evidenced by the roo.Jun 29, 21:30

  • Pet Food Reviews (Australia) on CopRice Dog Food Review: “We could start with a rudimentary experiment – put two plates in front of your dog, one with meat, the other with grains such as wheat, barley, and sorghum. Which will your dog, from the Order Carnivora, eat? You can argue nature knows best, couldn’t you? Interesting to see you didn’t provide a legitimate email, which makes me question the authenticity of your comment.Jun 24, 18:36
  • Pet Food Reviews (Australia) on How to feed a dog (or cat): “Hi Grace, it’s a very good question and I’ll do my best to answer… Have a read of the ingredients for Hill’s Science Diet Adult (I just cherry picked this, but same principle will apply to other brands). Skip past the barley, wheat, corn, sorghum, corn gluten meal, soybeans, and brewers rice which make up most of the product – all of which you can argue aren’t great for an animal from the Order Carnivora. All those smaller inclusions such as thiamine mononitrate, calcium pantothenate, riboflavin, biotin, taurine, plus other vitamins and minerals, a dog would normally source from organ meats – because they’re the richest source of those nutrients. Liver, kidney, heart, are prime examples, but also tissue, cartilage, bone, brains. Dogs have complex nutritional needs which standards such as AAFCO attempt to address – i.e. they set a standard to ensure all required nutrients for a dog are provided in their entirety in that product. This is as they currently know and understand, but it’s worth considering taurine wasn’t a requirement until recently (since the DCM scare in fact – what you read all over the internet about grain free foods causing heart failure). Taurine is now a requirement. With raw all these nutrients need to be catered for. If any aren’t then the dog can become deficient, which may take a long period of time. With kibble, especially given most people only feed one product for the life of their dog, it puts complete reliance on that product being complete with all nutrients, in an absorbable form. To me that’s putting a great deal of trust in that product for those complex nutritional needs. I hope that answers your question, although I’m not sure if your question suggests I’ve recommended simply feeding meat as a balanced diet, which is not how it should read!Jun 24, 18:30
  • Pet Food Reviews (Australia) on Healthy Everyday Pets Dog Food Review: “Hi Meg, was this the first time you fed the fish formula? It’s common for dogs to get a bit of runny poo when new foods are introduced, so that could be the reason?Jun 24, 18:12
  • Pet Food Reviews (Australia) on Baxters Dog Food Review: “Hi Michael, can you report the issue here please – https://www.apog.com.au/recall-issue-log/woolworths-baxters/ Thank youJun 24, 18:11
  • No Way on CopRice Dog Food Review: “Wow, you are impressively bad at reading an ingredients list and impressively good at deliberately misleading people on what it says. Read this one to see if your opinions were worth paying attention to. Yikes. Get some qualifications ffs The fact you provide no evidence, there is no fact in your claims, and you yourself say you disagree with medical science? ‘If grain is bad’ i love how even you know you cant make the assertion factually so use rhetorical device to seem like you did.Jun 24, 17:32
  • Gracie on How to feed a dog (or cat): “Hi, I am a little confused about how raw diets can lead to deficiencies and health problems if they are not balanced, but you can still feed meat without a complete diet supplement. Is it because it is not just meat you are feeding them? how do you make sure they are not deficient or receiving too much of something? thanks, GraceJun 24, 10:14
  • Karen on Frontier Pets Dog Food Review: “Ive just ordered my first bag. I have been feeding my.girl totally raw and then added Ziwipeak and now will be adding Frontier beef to her diet. The 9.7 rating and all the great reviews made it an easy choice. Jun 24, 07:20
  • Meg on Healthy Everyday Pets Dog Food Review: “I also bought the ocean fish version of food and it’s given my dog very runny poo. Previously she was on lamb and kangaroo and her poo was firm.Jun 23, 15:26
  • Michael on Baxters Dog Food Review: “Dog poo had blood in it just after 2 feeds looked online to my shock this stuff can kill your dog. Don’t buy this brand whatever you do. How has this not been recalled with the amount of bad reviewsJun 22, 08:44
  • Edanna on The best dog treats in Australia – with health benefits!: “Yours Droolly NZ range only, the others are from China or Thailand so no. I use the chicken and kumara. Providore treats as well, very similar and both are smelly, so dogs find them irresistible. My dogs learn so quickly on these, but they also get a brain boosting oil which boosts learning. However I don’t doubt for a second that the treats irresistibility helps too.Jun 21, 22:13
  • Pet Food Reviews (Australia) on Apollo Dog Food Review: “Hi Carol, could you add this report to the following page please – https://www.apog.com.au/recall-issue-log/apollo-woolworths/ Any chance you have a photo of the plastic?Jun 21, 18:58
  • Janice on Zignature Dog Food Review: “I’ve had my dogs (a 9yr old Labrador and a 7mth old lab/wolfhound mix) on this for about a month now. I opted for the turkey formula as my lab is overweight. I can’t quite make up my mind about it, some days their stools are firm, some days they are so soft you have to hose it away. I did have them both on Orijen (puppy and dog), never had any bother with their bowel movements. I would have preferred to have kept them on it but at $200 a bag (each) every 6 weeks it was unsustainable. Zignature said it was for all life stages,so I will keep with the Zignature for now, maybe try a different protein next time. Go back to Orijen once the pup no longer needs the puppy formula.Jun 21, 18:16
  • Carol Dunn on Apollo Dog Food Review: “I brought this dog food for my little dog and there was a piece of hard plastic in it luckily I noticed it’s she would have choked on it .Won’t be buying again.Jun 21, 11:20
  • Abigail on Stockman & Paddock Dog Food Review: “I started using the grain free product for my Border Collie, after Black Hawk changed. I only feed him 2/3 a cup 2 x a day, if I feed him the prescribed amount he gets fat, I add grated carrots and apples to bulk up his dinner and keep his weight down. I did try a bag of the grain product, but went back to grain free because, now I have two BC’s the pup is fussier and much prefers the grain-free. Stockmans Paddock is all Australian, competitively priced and my dogs look great – their stools look healthy, I am glad I found it, would not use anything else.Jun 21, 09:49
  • Coral on ProBalance Dog Food Review: “Was recommended pro balance fish and salmon for lge Labradoodles who is scratching. Hasn’t changed, must be allergic to something in product.Jun 21, 05:53
  • Alyssa on The best dog treats in Australia – with health benefits!: “Do you have any other dog training treats recommendations? I give my pup ziwi as treats but when in a distracted environment she won’t even bother with ziwi treats. I might need a special “only for walks” treats to help with distractions… Also, has anyone heard of and tried dog by dr lisa treats? What are your thoughts? I keep getting ads from themJun 20, 20:57
