How to fatten up your dog
Pet Food Reviews
by Pet Food Reviews (Australia)
1d ago
Most people assume fattening up a dog means feeding them more dog food, which is usually why they fail. Fattening up your underweight dog isn’t as easy as feeding them more food. In fact, your current dog food could possibly be the reason your dog is underweight, and there are multiple reasons why. In most cases it’s more about feeding the right food, and you’ll be forgiven if pet food companies have misled you in this respect. Let’s start with a resounding quote. It’s from the controversial documentary The Magic Pill, sadly removed from Netflix due to… “conflicts of interest”… or something li ..read more

What’s the best cat food (in Australia)?
Pet Food Reviews
by Pet Food Reviews (Australia)
1d ago
I started Pet Food Reviews a decade ago, and it’s been 15 years since I realised I’d been feeding my poor cat biscuits made mostly of grains – for my pet carnivore – as recommended by my vetinarian. Here we are in 2024, and the pet food industry is yet to answer my simple question – Why do we feed our carnivorous cats grains? Earlier this year I asked an ex-Hill’s Rep of around 35 years why we feed our pets grains. His first response was “Dogs are omnivores so it’s fine and scientific” (or words to that affect). I reiterated “Yes, but cats are obligate carnivores, so why is there so much grain ..read more

True Blue Dog Food Review
Pet Food Reviews
by Pet Food Reviews (Australia)
2w ago
True Blue dog food may appeal to you if you want an Aussie brand made from Australian produce which won’t break the bank. You will find the True Blue range more readily available in rural areas, with four varieties on offer – Essentials, Family Dog, Working Dog, and Grain Free. Essentials is the cheapest, but I find the Grain Free is the best of the bunch for any dog – working dogs and family dogs included. I’ll go into reasons why later. It’s worth noting the Essentials range is not suitable for puppies, whereas the other three formulas are all life stages (puppy through to senior). True Blue ..read more

Prime100 Dog Food Rolls Review
Pet Food Reviews
by Pet Food Reviews (Australia)
1M ago
Country of origin Australia Available from Petbarn, PETstock, Others Prime100 have a loyal following from social media groups such as Balanced Canine Sydney who have been a strong advocate for the brand, and numerous Australian veterinary clinics endorse Prime100 over big name brands Hill’s and Royal Canin. As a dog food roll I consider Prime100 to sit between dry food (kibble) and more true-to-form raw, dried raw, and BARF dog foods. The hypoallergenic SPD (Single Protein Diet) Prime100 Kangaroo & Pumpkin and Salmon & Tapioca rolls are very popular for those with dogs sufferin ..read more

Choosing the right Senior Dog food
Pet Food Reviews
by Pet Food Reviews (Australia)
1M ago
If you compare the ingredients of a Senior dog food to an Adult or “All Life Stage” dog food you may find less meat, less protein, and more grains and carbohydrates – the stuff those big canine teeth weren’t really designed for. I’ll ask you this – do you think high-carb grains and starches are the best foods for your senior dog? I don’t. A pet food manufacturer can argue your old dog is less active and doesn’t need as much nutrition as they did in their younger years. The great thing about this argument, for them, is a cheaper to produce product. If the health of your dog slides down hill… we ..read more

Frontier Pets Dog Food Review

Website Frontier Pets Available from Only available direct from Frontier Pets Frontier Pets is fantastic, and if this review doesn’t convince you to at least try a bag then I don’t know what will. It’s only available from their website here, which cuts out the cost of a retailer. Retailers can take as much as a 40% cut, which usually comes out of our pockets. Buying direct allows Frontier Pets to keep the food as affordable as possible. Not only is Frontier Pets a genuine Australian brand, it’s one of the only Australian dog foods to mimic a natural “raw” canine diet. It’s one of the b ..read more

Why does your dog’s urine kill the grass?
Pet Food Reviews
by Pet Food Reviews (Australia)
2M ago
Brown patches all over our lawn, often called “urine burn”, are a phenomenon of some dogs and not others. But why? It’s common for raw fed dogs to burn the lawn more than kibble fed dogs, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing other than causing frustration for us. Hydration, age, breed, health, and sex also affect how much a dog will burn the grass, and by sex I mean M or F. In this article we’ll cover why dog’s burn the lawn and cause brown patches with their urine, and simple ways we can prevent it happening (or at least reduce the impact!) What causes a dog’s urine to “burn” grass? Why ..read more

Be Frank Dog Food Review
Pet Food Reviews

2M ago
Be Frank dog and cat food is proudly made in the Hawkesbury Valley, which leads me to the assumption this is another Hypro brand. If I’m honest, Hypro seem to have a good track record, and as an Australian brand will likely appeal to many. Be Frank dog food is available at PETstock, with a range of novel protein and single protein formulas which may help if your dog suffers dietary sensitivities to chicken protein or cheap dodgy grains used in many supermarket brands. Skirting over the main ingredients shows Be Frank dog food to be one meat to three legume ingredients (so around 25% of main in ..read more

Talentail Cat Food Review
Pet Food Reviews
by Pet Food Reviews (Australia)
2M ago
What I like most about the Talentail cat food formulas is the emphasis on animal ingredients. When most dry cat foods have a significant amount of grains or other starches, you have to wonder why they are formulated this way for your pet carnivore cat. There are two formulas on offer, with both being “all life stage” which means they meet the nutritional needs of a kitten or senior cat as well as adulthood. One is chicken, the other fish, and you may want to rotate between the two to offer your cat some variety. In this review we’ll focus on the Talentail Ultimate New Zealand Chicken dry cat f ..read more

Manuka wound gel for dogs?
Pet Food Reviews
by Pet Food Reviews (Australia)
3M ago
When it comes to manuka honey you’ll be aware of two things – (1) what a wonderful natural healing powerhouse it is, and (2) the jaw dropping price tag on jars of manuka honey. When it comes to our dogs, particularly when they suffer minor cuts, scrapes, and abrasions, manuka wound gel can be a game changer. It’s not that expensive either, and it’s worth having a tube in your medicine cabinet for when your dog gets injured. Let’s take a look at when you can use manuka wound gel, when you shouldn’t, and where you can buy some in Australia: Where to buy manuka wound gel for dogs (and cats) Whe ..read more
