Swedish Cats Elvis & Baltazar get new life from Ziwi Peak
From Mikaela

I've never experienced such a change in my cats as I have with Ziwi Peak. It's like I've suddenly got myself a pair of happy predators! They play, hunt and cuddle as they never have done before...

Our first cat Elvis, a 9½ year old neutered male, has been really fat almost all his life. His weight went up quickly and then it was there to stay. We have tried a lot of different feeds, including extreme veterinarian food for overweight cats, but he just kept putting on weight. Thank god he always been healthy and surprisingly active, but since he´s not getting any younger it would be good if he got a little slimmer. Elvis waist is starting to show. We changed food to Ziwi Peak when our other cat got ill (I´ll soon get back to his story) and pretty soon we noticed the positive effects. He lost weight!

We couldn’t believe our eyes when Elvis waist started to show and we just had to weigh him. The scale confirmed everything, he was really losing weight! It should be interesting to see if he continues down to normal weight, or if he stops with a few extra kilos around his waist. One thing is clear though – he is on the way out of the unhealthy obese life!

Baltazar's blood sugar is stable Our other cat Baltazar is a 9 year old neutered long-haired male that at the age of 2 years weighed almost 6 kg (without being fat). At that time he was so healthy he was accepted as blood donor. 6 months later he was a lot thinner. He had got diabetes. At the least he weighed 4 kg and that’s just one of his many issues.

It has been difficult getting him to eat which makes it difficult to control his blood sugar. Baltazar insulin crashed due to hunger strike and on top of this he had a real problem stomach which not directly helped the appetite. We switched feed on both our cats for his sake and the choice became Ziwi Peak. He now eats both dry and moist cat food. Today his blood sugar is stable, his stomach is perfect and he has barb and fur we haven´t seen since before he got ill! As a bonus he also started to play, something he hasn’t been able to before. It´s so fun seeing that even his playfulness is back. Today his blood sugar is stable.

My sincere thanks and eternal gratitude for Ziwi Peak! 

Mikey & Molly - ZiwiPeak forever
From Lisa Green in USA

I'm so grateful to have found Ziwi Peak for my two cats, both under 3 years of age. They were both eating grain free food since they were adopted (at about 2.5 months and rescued from a boarding house) but at about 1.5 years old presented symptoms of chicken, turkey and fish allergies (although I never fed them much of the latter).

Long story short: Mikey presented symptoms of feline herpes about one year ago. His opthamologist prescribed a range of eye medications - nothing worked, only lysine. Still, he has had long flare ups - to the extent that the photo displayed of him here is from 2011, I haven't been able to photograph him because of his eyes. That will soon change as his eyes are opening up, we are halfway there, he has the prettiest green eyes ... I had read that feline herpes kitties do best on low starch / carb diets - in fact, cats in general have little to no need for grains or vegetables.

Ziwi Peak is so low carb and low starch, after more than a month on the lamb and venison (with some air dried lamb on the side), Mikey's eyes are actually improving, along with giving him lysine daily. They both have more energy.

Molly especially loves the air dried lamb which I give after I make sure she has had enough of her canned food. This is such an exceptional company - free range animals, hormone / antibiotic free and with BPA cans to boot - who could ask for more?! 

I just wanted to say thank you...
From Marla in Korea

I’ve been feeding my animals (dogs and cats) Ziwi Peak for a number of months now and they absolutely love it. I am also involved in animal rescue and feed it to all my rescues. I’ve never met an animal who didn’t want to eat it. It makes me so happy to be able to give them a high quality pet food here in Korea!  Thanks so much! 

Hypoallergenic Maine Coon Thrives on ZiwiPeak!
From Joan Lyon in USA

My Maine Coon, Ellie, is very hypoallergenic and the Vet suggested a prescription dry brand to help with her itching. I tried the recommended brand and it was okay for a couple of weeks, but then Ellie went right back to scratching herself even more than before. I had to do my own research and stumbled on Ziwi Peak, thought I'd give it a try and Ellie has been itch free for 2 years now! I could not be happier. My other kitties have decided they want it too, so now I am feeding four very happy campers.  Do your animal pals a favor and try this food. You and they will be happy you did. Cheers! 

No more itching!
From Maria in Sweden

My cat is allergic to fish and fish oil, and it has been quite troublesome to find food that is good for her and food that she likes. Ziwi Peak keeps the allergy in control, there is no more itching, and her fur is amazing! I've started feeding her raw food as well, and Ziwi Peak is the only "dry food" that is allowed in my house. The wet food is amazing! I've tried other brands of grain free wet food without fish, but none has even come close. She looks amazing, seems to feel very good, and keeps the weight perfect. A picture of perfect health. And soon she will be out of that "teen-phase"...... finally! A big meow from Ronja

ZiwiPeak not only smells good but looks good
From Carole in Australia

Of late, my cat "Aphie" has developed a worrying digestive problem which appears to have been caused by an undesirable consistency change in her usual well known commercial food product which I have been purchasing for some years.  After trying numerous other brands on the market the situation was not improving.  Fortunately, my local pet store suggested Ziwi Peak as a brand replacement product. To my great relief, after only one week of being offered cans of Ziwi Peak beef, which is "Aphie's" preferred flavour type, her digestive system has regained normality.  I would also comment that she is no longer continually hungry and begging for food throughout the day.  I would like to add, Ziwi Peak not only smells good but looks good and, with current results achieved, is obviously a healthy alternative to most other commercial brands of cat food on the market which now appear to contain inappropriate fillers for feline consumption. My cat "Aphie" thinks so too.

Life changing for my kitten! Thank You!
From Erin

A recent letter to our Customer Service Manager, Shelley Yeatman.

Hi Shelley,

In regards to my earlier emails to you about my kitten with kidney failure...I want to give a huge massive thank you to you and your company at Ziwi Peak!

I have literally been in happy tears thanks to Ziwi Peak because my poor kitten was struggling with chronic kidney failure due to complications during her spay leading to another surgery.

She was on Hills KD diet for a couple weeks but didn't seem to get any better...she was just ‘surviving’ so I slowly changed her to Ziwi Peak, adding extra water in her canned food and only gave her the Lamb and Venison varieties. She started putting weight back on, grooming and playing again. Now she eats all flavours of Ziwi Peak, both the can and air dried food. She always eats every bit in one sitting.

My kitten was literally on the verge of dying...and your food has given her her life back, thank you for making such a nutritious food! Thank you!! She now has many more years to come because she is herself again so happy playing all the time! Loving life!

I actually work at City Farmers in Perth, we now stock Ziwi Peak and I recommend it to all of our customers telling them my experience. 

I cannot thank your company enough. I have attached a picture of my Yuki for you all to enjoy, she will be a year old in January and it is because of Ziwi peak that she gets to have her first birthday! 

Kind regards, 

Erin and Yuki

Ziwi a cure for cat's kidney failure
From Erin

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!

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

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.
