I was fortunate to receive an amazing box of goodies for my three pups – a five lb Maltese, an 11 pound Pomeranian, and a 55+ pound Brittany – to try from K9Cusine.com. An online site specializing in natural and premium foods and treats, they offer free shipping and discount codes. Their store is easy to shop, is full of choices, and attractive. It’s simple style is a nice change from the over-designed sites. Finding products is easy and there’s a wealth of information about each to help you select the right food or treat. Additionally, many have sample sizes so you don’t have to commit before giving it a try.
Here are the foods my pup’s got to sample and their reactions:
Ziwi Peak Daily Dog Cuisine – Venison – Air Dried Dog Food – All three pups LOVED this food. Meant for everyday feeding, it’s air-dried in a sterile and safe food processing method. It contains no grains, artificial colors, salt, sugar, chemicals, or artificial flavors and is made of nearly 85% meat and organs. By the pound it’s expensive, but because it’s air-dried and not full of fillers your pup will actually eat less and feel full sooner.
Addiction – Wild Kangaroo & Apples – Dry Dog Food – the dogs LOVED this food. I’ll admit, I was a little put off at first at the though of them eating cute little kangaroos, but meat is meat and they loved it. According to K9 Cuisine’s website, “Wild kangaroo meat contains the highest levels of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) of any red meat. CLA has been shown to support overall health and fitness. This unique formula also contains apples rich in antioxidants and pectin for vitality and digestive health.” This food is great for dogs who have allergic reactions to other types of meat.
ORIJEN – Adult – Dog Food – Wild Caught (6 fresh fish with Sea Vegetables) – the cat LOVED this one, the dogs are still on the fence. To be fair, they’ve had a new food every week for the last 4 weeks. Always change your pet’s food slowly, swapping out half for the first 3 days with the new food, 3/4 the next 4 days and then finally on the 7th day you can feed 100% of the new food if your pup is adjusting (her stools are normal and regular) continue with the new food, if not, back down on the new food or consider another option. This company tries to mimic a dog’s natural diet by including 70% fish, 30% fruits and vegetables, and 0% grains. It smells like fish and is small, round shaped hard pellets. I like the extra herbs and botanicals included and have purchased them for my pups over the years. Giving them extracts is a lot harder than having it available in their food.
Premium Vitamins – Vitamin A, vitamin D3, vitamin E, niacin, vitamin C, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, folic acid, biotin, vitamin B12
ORIJEN – Adult – Dog Food – I preferred the smell of this one to the fish version. The dogs like it about the same. I’ll likely switch our dogs over from their current Iams food because this is healthier and priced about the same. With free shipping it’ll arrive at my door and the delivery person can lug it up the two sets of stairs instead of me – win/win! The kibble is appropriately sized for all three of my dogs – not too small, not too large.
Fresh Regional Ingredients – Fresh boneless chicken, chicken meal, turkey meal, russet potato, fresh pacific salmon (a natural source of DHA and EPA), herring meal, sweet potato, peas, fresh lake whitefish, fresh northern walleye, chicken fat (naturally preserved with vitamin E and citric acid), chicken liver, salmon meal, fresh turkey, fresh whole eggs, fresh deboned herring, sun-cured alfalfa, salmon oil, pumpkin, carrots, spinach, turnip greens, apples, cranberries, sea salt
Organic Minerals – Zinc proteinate, iron proteinate, manganese proteinate, copper proteinate, selenium.
