NEW grain-free Lamb formula from Taste of the Wild

Monday, June 17th, 2013

In yet another indication that grain-free pet foods are the new “IT girl”, Taste of the Wild has released a new flavour to their entirely grain-free range.

Their Sierra Mountain formula  is a lamb protein, grain-free formula for all life stages (ie. puppies, adult dogs and seniors) with sweet potatoes and peas providing highly digestible energy for your dog. 

Made with real roasted lamb, this formula offers a taste sensation like no other. It’s a 25% crude protein meal that’s supplemented with fresh fruits and veggies that are loaded with antioxidants. Plus, added chicory root reduces your bestie’s risk of worms. 

 Key benefits of the Sierra Mountain (lamb) formula:-

- Chelated minerals boost the immune systems

- Made without grains, a common allergy trigger for dogs

- Yucca Schidigera extract aids gastrointestinal system and reduces odour in stools

- Taurine protects the heart

- Cranberries offer bacteria prevention and fight acid urine

So, if you’re searching for a healthy, grain-free diet for your bestie, consider Taste of the Wild.  In addition to their new Lamb recipe, there’s Wetlands Roasted Fowl, Pacific Stream Smoked Salmon and High Prairie Bison & Venison flavours.

All recipes are made with real roasted meats and fresh fruits and vegetables to support a strong immune system, healthy digestive system and overall optimal health.

Choosing the right dog food

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

Just read this great article published by the ‘Whole Dog Journal’ out of the U.S. about how to choose the right dog food.

We subscribe to this great publication (every February they publish their ‘Top Dog Food’ report) and are always impressed by their totally unbiased reporting on things that really matter in the world of dogs (and it’s not funded by advertisers!). 

whole dog journal

There’s no doubting that the quality and philosophy about pet food over the last decade or so has changed dramatically.  It’s now not considered beneficial for a dog or cat to live wholly on a wet diet. A good quality dry food is considered much more beneficial because not only does it deliver the required nutrients but also keeps your pet’s teeth clean and healthy (for one thing).

The article suggests that dogs, just like people, are individuals. And if we are to base our pet’s dietary choices on this, then you wouldn’t feed the same food to a large, active dog and a small, lie-at-home-all-day-watching-television dog!  That makes sense to me.

And it makes good common sense to follow the advice to assess your dog’s health while dieting on its current food. List the health assets and problems it may have. Health assets are things like bright eyes, fresh breath, clean teeth, glossy coat, clean ears etc.  Any conditions for which your dog requires a visit to the vet would be listed on the problems list along with things like bad breath, goopy eyes, excessive gas, diarrhoea, recurring fleas or worms, low or excessive energy etc.

If there are a lot more assets on your list than problems, and the problems are minor, then you’re probably already feeding your dog the right type of food.

If not, then your dog’s a good candidate for a change of diet!  Again, go to view the Whole Dog Journal article as it outlines in much more detail what you should be assessing if your dog’s health is an issue.

And referring back to their Top Dog Food report, we’re happy to report that we stock three of their ‘approved dry foods’.  Artemis, Organix (Castor & Pollux) and Eagle Pack’s Holistic Select can be purchased and home delivered from Pookinuk.  All these foods use high quality ingredients and are classified as either a ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ food.

 We speak to a lot of our customers about dietary concerns they may have for their pets so if you have any concerns or have followed the Whole Dog Journal’s advice and realised that your dog or cat perhaps isn’t eating the right food, give us a call. We’re more than happy to help point you in the right direction – 1300 65 66 75.
