Food Review: Ziwi Peak Venison & Fish Cuisine

Ziwi Peak

After requesting a free sample of Ziwi Peak Venison treats, we decided to find a place to purchase a small bag of their daily cuisine (which happened to be Planet Dog).

We tried the Venison & Fish Cuisine.
Venison & Fish (meat min 50%, venison organs min 19.5%, Hoki fish min 15%)
Per their website:
INGREDIENTS: Venison - Meat (min. 50%), Liver, Tripe, Heart and Kidney (min. 19.5%), Fish (min. 15%), Chicory Syrup, Green-lipped and Blue Mussel (min. 4%), Fish Oil, Lecithin, Kelp, Vitamins and Minerals, Parsley, Naturally preserved with mixed tocopherols
Additives: Vit. D3 592 IU/kg, Vit. E 7.4mg/kg, Copper (copper proteinate) 9.8mg/kg.
Calories 1778 KJ/100g.
Protein (min.) 34% Ash (max.) 8%
Fat (min.) 26% Fibre (max.) 1.8%
Moisture (max.) 15% Calcium 2%

Phosphorus P 1.1%

Based on the information on their website, we are to assume "fish" means "Hoki Fish", though in the ingredients it does NOT specify.

Based on the feeding instructions, our dogs would get 2 scoops a day (in the 22lb range). The Ziwi Peak advantage claims to help mirror a more natural hunting diet than dry commercial kibble by being free of fillers, grains or preservatives and promoting the original nutritional values of their ingredients.
It is true, even the most picky of eaters cannot resist Ziwi Peak:

I would suggest trying this food. Ziwi Peak is very open with their Quality of Animal Protein and Certification of Proteins sourced and used. Though they may be a little pricey, you end up feeding less because the food is so thoroughly digestible.
