Raw Food Options

Our Blog “Why raw food ?” talks about the benefits of a raw food diet for dogs and cats. We’ve had lots of customer enquiries so here’s an overview of the raw food products we are currently stocking.
Dr Bruce’s VETS ALL NATURAL Complete Mix:
Developed by Dr Bruce Syme, this product is an all natural food for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens that, when mixed with the appropriate ration of raw meat forms a fully balanced, 100% preservative and additive free, completely natural raw food diet for dogs and cats.  
Complete Mix for dogs

Complete Mix for dogs & cats.

Complete Mix is manufactured in strict accordance with the principles of raw food. Ingredients are air dried at, or below, body temperature to prevent any thermal damage to proteins, vitamins and enzymes.
The mix is designed to be reconstituted by soaking in an equal volume of water for 24 hours which increases palatability but also allows the germination (activation) of the starch in the grains, increasing their digestibility, nutritional value, and bio-availability.
Here at Pookinuk we pride ourselves on sourcing a variety of different pet foods and therefore being able to offer our customers a range of products to suit their individual (and pet’s) requirements. So, we’re pleased to offer this product amongst our stable of brands. 
The Vet’s All Natural range consists of 4 formulas:  Puppy,  Adult & Senior Dog,  Weight Loss for Dog,  Cat. The variations are designed to meet the individual needs of dogs and cats at different life stages with regard to level of growth, energy, and nutrient requirements.
Each of these are available in 3 sizes: 1kg (bag), 5kg (bag), and 15kg (bucket or carton refill). 
We’ve just been introduced to a new type of dog food which is quite unique to the Australian market. Its called K9 Natural and it’s a raw dog food that’s nutritionally based on the diet of the dog’s closest relative, the wolf. (According to K9 Natural, research has shown that the DNA of the domestic dog is at most only 0.2% removed from that of the Grey Wolf.)

I fed this to my dogs last night (they’re fluffy, poodle crosses so not particularly wolf-like in appearance, appetite or looks!) - THEY LOVED IT! You  mix it with a little water, stir and leave it for a few minutes and it turns into a delicious smelling (for a dog), chunky gravy meal.

K9 Natural’s philosophy is based on the fact that canines are carnivores and, according to K9 Natural, when you understand these basic principles of nature and canine physiology, raw feeding with species-appropriate ingredients makes a lot of sense. Furthermore, when put into practice it can deliver great benefits for your dog.

K9 Natural is a revolutionary, freeze dried, raw dog food which combines the natural goodness of fresh whole foods with an absolute commitment to the true nutritional needs of canines.

The Freeze Dried products are not cooked.  The freeze drying process simply removes the moisture content and at no stage is heat applied.  The product returns to its original, fresh, raw state when water is added at feeding time.

K9 Natural contains only quality ingredients – 85% real meat, bone and blood, plus 15% fresh fruit and vegetables, whole eggs, garlic and cod liver oil.  K9 Natural DOES NOT contain additives, artificial preservatives, wheat, wheat gluten, rice, rice gluten, cereal bulking agents or corn.  Therefore, says K9 Natural, your dog is getting everything nature intended it to eat.

K9 Natural Freeze Dried requires no refrigeration, has an indefinite shelf life and comes in lightweight portable packs.  Also available as Lamb Treats.

See if raw  food makes a difference to your pet’s life.
