A Load of Tripe

ORDINARILY IF YOU TELL SOMEONE THEY’RE TALKING A LOAD OF TRIPE, THEY’D BE OFFENDED. WHEN IT COMES TO OUR PUPS, HOWEVER, TALKING TRIPE IS EXACTLY WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING. You love your dog, right? That’s why you’re here, reading this, because you care about the health and wellbeing of...

Here‘s the beef on grass-fed

Picture this: cattle grazing on lush green grass in open paddocks, wandering as they please, frolicking in the sunshine and daisies… okay, we’re getting a bit cheesy here, but that really is a pretty accurate snapshot of a cow’s life in New Zealand. We pride ourselves on healthy, happy cows...

The freeze-dried effect: Changing the raw pet food game

Technology has quickly made its way into every aspect of our lives – and although we might not often consider it, the same goes for our four-legged friends. Don’t think it stops at automatic cat-flaps and tennis ball throwers, though. The worldwide movement toward healthier alternatives in pet nutrition has...

Puppies... and steep learning curves!

It’s been a busy few months in our household since the arrival of Albus but we couldn’t be happier – we just love him! In saying that, getting a new puppy has been a big commitment and a steep learning curve… even for me. So, I thought I’d share a few...

Diving for doggy treasure

Green lipped mussels are one of New Zealand’s unique underwater treasures. We Kiwis love them, not only because they’re delicious, but because of their many health benefits: mussels were touted as New Zealand’s first superfood. At K9 Natural we thought it was only fair to share the love with our...

Why diet is so important to your dog’s health & well-being

We hear it time and time again, particularly when gobbling down chocolate, the age old adage ‘you are what you eat’.

What the Hoki? Diving deep into our favorite fish.

If New Zealand hoki were at school, they’d be getting gold stars all around. Correction: they actually are in schools, but you won’t find them sitting at a desk! Hoki is a species of fish abundant in New Zealand waters, and where you will find it is in a couple of our K9 Natural and Feline...

Have you met Mark?

Hi there, my name is Mark Roberts and I work both as a researcher and nutritionist for K9 Natural. I initially got involved in feeding dogs a meat-based diet many years ago. My Father had worked in Antarctica in the 1960’s when sled dogs were still used and fed a diet consisting...

Guaranteed Analysis vs Typical Analysis —What’s the difference?

Here at K9 Natural, we take pride in our transparency when it comes to the nutritional jigsaw puzzle that is pet food. In this blog, we focus on how our nutritional jigsaw puzzle stacks up by answering some of our most frequently asked questions.

The dental diet

Canine dental disease affects 80% of dogs over the age of three. With brushing the dog’s teeth becoming routine in many households, it is no secret dental health is an important component in a dog’s overall wellbeing. But can one diet put the toothbrush away for good?

It’s all about the meat

Whilst I can say with reasonable confidence our feline friends were not the intended audience, Hippocrates had it right when he said, ‘let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food’.  A nutritious, well-balanced, meat centric diet is critical to the health and wellbeing of cats, with several of the...

The real scoop on poop

It’s a thing that looms large in the daily lives of dog owners. We’d rather not think about it, but we have to. We’d like to turn our back and stride confidently away, but common decency, multiple bylaws and a deathly stare from fellow walkers means there is no way...
