A high protein New Zealand brand of dog food is now available here - leaving Aussie tails wagging across the nation.
Animals Like Us, available in Woolworths, is sustainably sourced and produced in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand and has a mouth-watering, fresh taste.
Research shows that dogs self-select food and are drawn to ingredients with high concentrations of proteins and amino acids, which is why raw tastes so great to them.
“Dogs love raw food and as omnivores, it is naturally what they eat in the wild. They need the essential ingredients contained in raw such as Vitamin A, fatty acids and amino acids for energy, health and strength,” animal expert Emme Williams said.
Animals Like Us is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, which contains anti-inflammatory properties and is often used to help relieve pain in arthritic dogs and improve their weight-bearing ability, in additional to helping provide a healthy skin and coat. Studies have also found it beneficial for heart health.
High in protein and low in carbs, Animals Like Us RawBlend33, comes in a choice of three varieties, Grass-Fed Beef; King Salmon and Ocean Fish and Grass-Fed Lamb and Venison Tripe, each full of flavour, with no nasty additives and especially formulated for easy digestion.
Each contains 33 per cent raw meat or fish and 67 per cent high protein oven baked meat and vege bites, coated with probiotics to support digestive health. Serve dry or add water to suit your pet’s palate.
“We are very excited to be launching Animals Like Us in Australia. Now, for the first time, pet parents can purchase premium dog food and treats from the convenience of their local Woolies store, co-founder Rob Achten said.
"After all, our pets are part of our family and deserve the same healthy food and lifestyle that we enjoy,” he said.
“When you feed your dog nutritious food, you’re not only investing in your dog’s health, you’re investing in your relationship because as every owner knows, a dog is not just for life, it is for love,” Emme said,
