This summer is serving up a heatwave of epic proportions, and while we know how important it is to keep ourselves hydrated and cool, let’s not forget to keep an eye out for our four-legged friends.

Flaxseed - A Nutritional Powerhouse

Flaxseeds are the richest food source of the short chain Omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Whilst different in structure to the marine based Omega-3s you are likely familiar with, ALA is an essential fatty acid for our pups and kitty cats, meaning they must get it from their diet.

Nutrient Rich Organs

Written by Dr. Josie Gollan. The use of offal in pet food has been a long-time sufferer of poor perception, particularly in countries with low human consumption of organ meats.

It Turns Out You Can Bottle Love

Introducing your new feline to the family dog

For quite some time I’ve been nagging my husband about adding a feline friend to our family. With Albus the dog, Hendrix the one and a half year old and another one on the way he assures me our family is quite full! When I beg to differ he retorts...

Feeding your new puppy

Can you picture that moment you met for the first time, the puppy that was going to come home and live with you? For most of us it was the same; two big eyes, an impossibly small ball of fluff, and so (sooo) many questions. Yes, one of life’s greatest...

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...
