  1. Frontier Pets is one of the highest quality dog foods in Australia. Human grade ingredients. It's pricy though (or you could say other foods are cheap... for a reason). One thing worth considering is feeding some kind of appropriate bone, shank, or tendon to help dental health, but that can be said for any food really, just more so with wet and air/freeze dried foods which have absolutely no abrasion.
  2. Thread revival! Has anyone here been feeding Woofin Good, and how have you found it?
  3. This may also help - http://www.howtofeedadog.com Worth noting Australian pet food standards are much to be desired, and even with better brands it's worth rotating between 2 or 3 brands if not more.
  4. Hi DD33, Here's a list of Australian dog foods - https://www.petfoodreviews.com.au/category/australian-made-dog-food/
  5. Could be early signs of arthritis, although all of us slow down as we get older. Might be worth taking some preventative measures or supplements for joint health - fish oils, green lipped mussels etc. I just wrote some info on the latter here which might be of use - http://www.petfoodreviews.com.au/blog/green-lipped-mussels/
  6. I'm starting to feel like I respond to most of these threads with "What are they eating?" I have a personal friend who's dog suffered horrible seizures for years, about 3 or 4 per year. She was feeding him a main brand of dog food by *cough* Purina, and since changing to a raw diet about 3 years ago not a single seizure. It's not the first time I've seen a diet change resolve seizures completely. Obviously not the only cause, but a simple one almost always overlooked. Seizures are a horrible thing to experience.
  7. If I had a dollar for every time I've known a simple diet change to stop a Staffy scratching.... Staffies are the number one breed to suffer food allergies. Can I ask what you're feeding and does it contain wheat, corn, soy, rye, or anything like that?
  8. The wet food is likely better than the dried food but would work out more costly. If I fed ZiwiPeak to my dogs daily I'd have to downsize to a wooden shack to cover my mortgage Most manufacturers use better quality meat in the wet and the rest in the dry, although whether this is the case with ZiwiPeak I don't know.
  9. I think it's a great way to break in to raw feeding without so much risk. I wouldn't say it's as simple as feeding VAN + a meat source though, you should definitely be feeding meat and offal as you would a researched raw diet. http://www.petfoodreviews.com.au/alternative-dog-food/vets-all-natural-complete-mix/
  10. I'd be interested to know why you think peas aren't appropriate for dogs sas? There's very little evidence of negative effects of peas (and lectin proteins) on dogs, and as far as kibble ingredients go there's a lot worse out there. I see a problem when they're overused or included as a substitute for meat proteins, but as an ingredient they're a good (read: not great) source of protein and fibre.
  11. I'd love to know how they cook meats, fats, and oils into a solid kibble. It's just not possible :laugh: They originally had the cereals first, then emailed me to tell me my review was incorrect and the cereals were now last. They know they're falsely advertising it. I suppose what they write on their website isn't governed by pet food labeling standards, but it's still false advertising and fraud. Thanks Taliecat! I've had a manic few months so haven't been on the internet much!
