Our goal is to educate pet owners on the importance of feeding the diet that nature intended for the peak health and well-being of their pets.
We began with a vision. And we’ve never lost it, never compromised it. It inspires everything we do. We believe in natural feeding for dogs and cats for good reason. Because all-natural dog food and all-natural cat food supports the health and lives of our pets.
The key to providing the best diet possible is a deep understanding of what a dog or cat requires – how their digestive system functions. Poor food equals poor health. One leads to the other. Digestive problems, obesity, skin problems, poor coat condition, allergies, bad breath, joint and mobility problems, dirty teeth and poor gum condition, large and smelly stools. Even behavioural problems. Pets that are out of condition and out of sorts mean many vet visits, regular use of expensive medicines and supplements, and high vet costs. The problem’s almost always nutritional.
ZIWI Peak solves all these problems. The difference shows in pet health and longevity. Like others who love their pets unconditionally, we put health first. No compromises.
These are the values that have produced ZIWI Peak air-dried and canned foods. It’s about not cutting corners. Not abandoning our philosophy. It’s about building trust between ourselves and our pet parents.
THE ZIWI DIFFERENCE
Our ZIWI story starts in the green, free-range farms and blue, pristine Southern oceans of New Zealand. Our home place has a warm, temperate climate, which allows us to use only animals that are free-ranging, and grass-fed, all year round. We want this beautiful corner of the world preserved for the future, that’s why we choose to only source from sustainably and humanely managed local farms. What does this mean for your pet? It means the cleanest, purest, most natural ingredients in the world, benefiting your pet for a long, happy, healthy life.
Dogs and cats are carnivores and they thrive on meat. Their bodies aren’t designed to digest carbohydrates like grains, soy, corn, potatoes, wheat & rice. Our recipes are carefully crafted to mirror the whole-prey, meat rich, diet that dogs & cats require. That’s why we have organs like heart and lung in our food because that is what a dog or cat eats when it catches its prey in the wild. It consumes everything. We have over 96% fresh meat, organs, seafood and bone in all of our ZIWI Peak air-dried products.
SLOW & GENTLY AIR-DRIED
Air-drying is a technique that has been used for centuries to naturally preserve meats. Our modern method stays true to this artisan approach, while eliminating the need for artificial preservatives, sugars or glycerines. Our slow, gentle, twin stage air-drying process crafts a food that is as nutrient-dense and digestible as a completely raw diet but safe, clean to handle and can store for up to 21 months. We are sure your dog or cat will love it!
