Why premium dry dog food is more expensive than dry dog biscuits
Here at Natural NZ Pet Food & Treats, we are often asked why premium dry dog food costs more than cheaper dry dog biscuits? Like most things, you get what you pay for. Premium brands offer a high rate of digestibility, and therefore absorption than cheaper dog biscuits which have a low nutrient absorption capacity. Generally speaking, premium dog foods have consistent levels of protein, vitamins and minerals and the origin of protein content is clearly stated. The evidence of higher quality vitamins and minerals directly benefit your dog and you’ll notice they have a glossier coat and boosted energy. Cheaper dog food foods have cheaper cuts of meat and grains are used as fillers. Also, the cheaper brands usually only claim animal proteins, so it is hit and miss what your dog actually receives from one batch to the next.
Highlighting some of our most popular dog food brands
• Maranui Maranui products are based on the Biologically Appropriate Raw Food Diet (BARF). The aim of BARF is to maximize the health, longevity and reproductive capacity of pets and minimise the need for veterinary intervention. To ensure this, dogs need to be fed a diet that they have evolved to eat. A BARF diet mimics the diet that a wild dog would receive in a natural environment by using whole, raw foodstuffs. Maranui provides wholesome, nutritional pet food and is stored frozen. These products are safe for dogs with allergies to eat. Maranui is made in New Zealand and proudly owned and operated by a Kiwi manufacturer.
• Ultra Petfood Founded in 2000, Ultra is one of New Zealand’s healthiest, organic, GE free and all natural premium dog food range. In establishing Ultra’s range, the services of Jenny Anderson, a New Zealand based animal food nutritionist, were contracted to formulate a range of products covering growth, adult maintenance, and active working dogs. The specifications called for New Zealand sourced raw materials, from the human food chain where possible. The product needed to be wheat free, GE free, and completely natural. New Zealand sourced raw materials are used as there are no GE grains grown here, and the stock from which muscle meat is obtained is grass fed, not modified grain fed, or steroid fed as happens in many overseas countries.
• Addiction Dog FoodThe world’s best dog food, as voted by Whole Dog Journal, is made in New Zealand by Addiction. Grain-free and hypo-allergenic, Addiction foods are high in palatability making sure your dogs love the fresh New Zealand taste that is 100% free from artificial additives, colouring and preservatives. High-quality sources of free-range proteins are used to create a dry kibble that is a premium, complete food your dog will love.
• WOOF Dog Food Only the highest quality ingredients are selected to nourish your dog’s health. To ensure none of the wholesome goodness is cooked out, the nutrition and taste of fresh, raw food is gently freeze-dried. This process protects all the natural enzymes and nutrients. Simply add water and watch as the food rehydrates back to real, raw food that your pet will thrive on. WOOF ingredients have been chosen for their reputed healing and beneficial effect on the body and skin, providing all the nutritional goodness your pet needs at every stage of their life. Our food is natural, containing no fillers (such as corn, feather meal or soy protein), harmful chemicals, gum, artificial colours, antibiotics, sugar, vaccines or growth hormones.
