Hydration for cats

Unlike their canine counterparts, our feline friends are notoriously poor drinkers. This is likely due to their evolutionary path from desert type environments whereby they obtained most of their water through consumption of entire prey animals… including the stomach contents.

Nutrient Rich Organs

The use of offal in pet food has been a long-time sufferer of poor perception, particularly in countries with low human consumption of organ meats. Often perceived as a cheap, secondary by-product, inferior to muscle meat, this could not be further from the truth! Offal or organ meats are a...

Milk For Cats

Written by Dr. Josie Gollan   When I was growing up, if you had asked me what cats drink I would have confidently answered milk. With cartoons such as Garfield and Sylvester the cat, who if you don’t recall loved to guzzle milk, informing my young opinions it is no...

Answering your cat’s hydration needs with Feline Natural Pouches

'My cat just loves water; they love a bath, they love to swim and I often just find them lying out in the rain’….. said basically no cat owner ever! For anyone with childhood memories of their fluffy friend turning into a rabid panther when they tried to put them...

Keep your best mate safe this Christmas

With Christmas just around the corner (can you believe it?) the festive spirit is well and truly in full swing and the social calendar is becoming littered with Christmas parties and family gatherings. Like many people, it is my favorite time of year and I adore spending it with loved...

Cats are known for their fastidious behavior and this all to frequently extends to their...

What is freeze-dried?

  Not that long ago commercial pet food was relatively simple; you either fed dry kibble, tinned ‘wet’ food or a combination of both. Now days, as we have come to better understand the nutritional needs of our pets and its role in their health, a vast array of foods...

It’s All About The Meat

Whilst I can say with reasonable confidence our feline friends were not the intended audience, Hippocrates had it right when he said, ‘let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food’.  A nutritious, well-balanced, meat centric diet is critical to the health and wellbeing of cats, with several of the...

Transitioning to a new diet

‘Food should always be fun, food should always be fun’….is the mantra I repeatedly tell myself when I try to introduce new foods and flavours to my 6 month old son. Some days it’s a success and I beam with undeserved pride, other days he clamps his mouth shut so...

The instinctive diet

“What should I be feeding my dog?” is one of the most common questions I am asked in clinical practice. The recurring debate seems to centre on the appropriateness of high levels of carbohydrate in many of the commercial dry foods fed to a large proportion of our canine companions.
