Frequently Asked Questions about Products

You may notice that the colour or texture has variations from one bag to the next. This occurs because Ziwi Peak uses 100% natural meat and organs, and we don’t use artificial fillers, dyes, colours or preservatives. The colour and texture of our air-dried food is largely determined by the meat used in each batch, and will vary, depending on the animal’s age, the season and other natural factors. The time required in our air-drying process also varies, depending on the meats in each batch and can result in differences in colour and texture. The ingredients and nutritional value in every batch of Ziwi Peak air-dried remains the same, regardless of the colour or texture of the individual bag. 

Ziwi Peak’s canned and air-dried recipes contain the same ingredients; however our canned recipes have higher moisture content, typically 77.5%, compared to 13% in our air-dried recipes. 

All canned foods, both human and pet, must be sealed and heated, according to international regulations, in order to preserve and stabilize the contents. Our carefully blended recipes are placed into the can raw and heated at the minimum temperature and time required to meet those regulations.

Complete and balanced means the recommended serving contains all of the necessary nutrients that your pets need for health and well-being. Ziwi Peak foods are complete and balanced for all life stages and all breeds. We recommend working with a trusted veterinarian or qualified pet nutritionist when choosing your pet's diet, especially if you are feeding a puppy, kitten, unique breed or a pet with health issues.

Ziwi Peak recipes are over 95% digestible. Digestibility is calculated by measuring the amount of calories and nutrients consumed and the amount of calories and nutrients excreted in the pets stool.

Our unique twin-stage air-drying process preserves the nutritional benefits of our pure, natural ingredients while eliminating potential parasites and pathogenic bacteria, such as salmonella and e.Coli. As part of our commitment to quality, we test all products holding them for release until they are confirmed to be free of harmful pathogenic bacteria.

Bone is a perfectly natural attribute of a wild pray diet, and reflects what the animal would hunt and eat in the wild. Small bone pieces may be in found in our Rabbit and Lamb canned food because we use minced, wild New Zealand rabbit. We understand you may have some concerns and prefer not to feed your pet recipes containing minced bone. As an alternative, we offer a number of other recipes, including: Beef, Lamb, and Venison.
