Leo's tearstaining has disappeared!
From Kristine Tuazon
Leo's tearstaining has disappeared!

Leo, our pure breed NZ-born Japanese Spitz, previously had bad tear staining. After eating Ziwi Peak Air-Dried food for around 3 months now, we have recently noticed that his tear stains have significantly reduced! 

Thank you for making awesome products!

Haze, my 4 year-old cat, loves Ziwi
From Nadia V
Haze, my 4 year-old cat, loves Ziwi

I recently acquired Haze (4-year-old cat), who has been handed over with Whiskers cat food which she is turning her nose up to. I wanted to try and find the best quality food that she'll love, and was sent some samples from Ziwi. 
Haze absolutely loves the Ziwi Peak Mackerel and Lamb moist food, and I will be trying her on the Venison moist food shortly too. Thanks again!

Womble is happier than ever
From A Bradley
Womble is happier than ever

We have just changed our cat Womble, to your wet food and the change in him has been outstanding. He is 14 years of age and has become very sensitive to the ridiculous thickeners that are used in most cat foods, even those claiming to be "natural" and at one point became very ill. I am therefore, very cautious to give him anything new, but the change in his fur, energy levels, general well-being and sense of humour have been so fantastically positive, that I wanted to say a huge thank you!

I only wish that we could have fed him your products from when he first adopted us, because his fur has never been so silky and for a 14 year old cat, it's amazing to see! Thank you for being the first honest pet food company I have come across.

Best wishes and please don't stop this fantastic product, A Bradley

Nourishment beyond expectations!
From Rob Azmy
Nourishment beyond expectations!

I just wanted to take the time out of my day to thank you for being the greatest dog food company out there. My female dog gave birth to a litter of 9 pups just over a month ago. However, due to the strenuous process of breastfeeding she started to look malnourished and depleted. I tried various dog foods and brands until I started to cry out for help at Pet O, one of your retailers. They automatically referred me onto your product (Tripe and Lamb Air-Dried). It’s only been 3 days and my dog has already started showing signs of nourishment once again. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I will definitely be recommending you guys to all my dog breeder friends.

Gigi's diabetes is under control, finally!
From Christine
Gigi's diabetes is under control, finally!

It is nearly 2 years since Gigi was diagnosed with Diabetes in Spring 2016.

Initially we were recommended to feed raw beef - 25 g per meal, and 80g per day of Hills Science Prescription Diet M/D biscuits for Diabetes and Weight Control. We hoped that Gigi’s diabetes would go into remission with the diet, but unfortunately it became worse, and the insulin doses had to be regularly increased. After 6 months the vet did another blood test, and discovered that Gigi has Acromegaly, which is a benign tumour on the pituitary gland, which excretes excessive growth hormone, meaning that the diabetes wouldn't go into remission. The insulin doses were increased up to 23 units morning and night, with monthly blood glucose checks at the vet.

Recently Gigi suffered a hypo attack, and had to be rushed to the Animal Emergency Hospital where she stayed for 4 days, and we nearly lost her. Thankfully they recommended a Cat Specialist Clinic in Prahran, who taught us how to test the blood glucose at home, so we were better able to monitor the blood glucose. The new vet also reduced the insulin dosage after the hypo, but Gigi’s blood glucose remained high, between an average of 14 - 20.

Reading the ingredient list on the Hills Science Diet worried us, with the high amount of grains, especially corn, and internet research made us realise that grains are the last thing a diabetic cat needs, as obligate carnivores, cats need meat not grains. We discovered Ziwi at the local Petbarn, and we were excited to read your ingredient list, and even more importantly, what your food doesn’t contain.

At last, true health food for cats - especially diabetic cats !

We immediately stopped the Hills biscuits and tried Ziwi instead. We started with the Air Dried Beef & Venison as a Hills biscuit substitute, and then introduced the Canned Beef & Venison as well.​ Gigi absolutely loves both the dried and canned, so no problem encouraging her to try a new diet! Most exciting of all, we immediately saw a reduction of her blood glucose, so apart from a higher reading when we had to take her to the vets for an ultrasound, her BG now averages from 5.4 to 10, almost half, which is absolutely wonderful, and something we hoped for, but never expected!

Gigi is now sleeping better during the day, and is more relaxed, bright and cheerful. She isn’t constantly pestering for food, as she was when eating the Hills Science Diet, which just made her more and more aggressively hungry.​ Gigi is more satisfied and content with Ziwi.

Our new vet is very pleased with Gigi’s improvement and progress, and approves of the change from Hills Science Diet to Ziwi.

My poodles Bruno & Alfie
From Bev Hyde
My poodles Bruno & Alfie

Meet our standard poodles, Bruno aged 5 years and 10 month old Alfie. As you can see Bruno is a Canine Friend therapy dog and we would love Alfie to join the ranks when he is older.

Bruno was always a very fussy eater and we struggled to find the right food that he would consistently eat. Sometimes he wouldn’t eat for a couple of days rather than eat what was in his bowl.

Then about 2 years ago we discovered Ziwi Peak and we have never looked back. Bruno now looks forward to and constantly eats his dinners. He keeps excellent health and still has endless energy levels.

When we brought Alfie home as a pup we introduced him to Ziwi Peak. He loves his meals and has thrived during his puppy-hood.

We love being able to offer Bruno and Alfie the different Ziwi Peak recipes. The lamb and tripe would be their favourite but they are both loving the new chicken meal.

Thank you Ziwi Peak,

Bev - New Zealand

Ziwi is perfect for my fussy dog
From Ruth
Ziwi is perfect for my fussy dog

Boo is one of Ziwi Peak's fans. I bought her here from the UK 8 1/2 years ago and have struggled to find food for her that she will eat and keep weight on her. She is so fussy with food, she would rather starve than eat something she doesn't like. She has been on the Tripe & Lamb air-dried for over 8 months now and fed her raw tripe with it, however, after trying some of your canned food, Boo now will only eat the cans and the air-dried, she won't touch the tripe! So now, I'm feeding her the cans and air-dried and she looks amazing and has gained weight and keeping the weight on, I am so pleased with it, although I spend more on her food that I do for me! LOL. She also loves the chicken cans too, and will try her on the chicken air-dried as well when this bag runs out.

Fussy eater no more
From Krystal
Fussy eater no more

My boy was refusing to eat anything, he lost a lot of weight and I was very concerned for him, as he was starving himself. After taking him to the vet and finding out that there is nothing actually wrong with him, aside from being insanely fussy. I was determined to find something he would eat, after buying bag after bag of different dry foods, only to have him turn up his nose. I eventually stumbled across Ziwi, it looked fantastic, but I didn't want to buy another bag of food to find out that he won’t eat it. So I emailed Ziwi and was very impressed to have received samples of every recipe available. I put the food down and to my surprise he licked the bowl clean, I couldn't believe it. After all this trouble, I finally found something my dog will eat and he’s starting to put the weight back on, thank goodness. Couldn’t be happier with Ziwi, not only is it a quality product, but the customer service is phenomenal. Won’t buy anything else, Ziwi is a life saver for me and my boy. Thank you Ziwi

From Erin
Ziwi a cure for cat's kidney failure

I feed my cat Ziwi Peak because it cured my cat's kidney failure.
She was diagnosed as a kitten and was fed Science diet KD and wasn't coping.. losing weight, bad breath, bad looking coat.. sad kitten...
Researched into better food and that's how i found Ziwi Peak! 
Saw a difference straight away when i changed her to Ziwi Peak. She is a kitten again and sooooo healthy!! A year later and no signs of kidney failure either!
Will never touch anything else for my kitty!
