Why Feed Premium Foods

There is a saying "we are what we eat" and this is very true.  The food we eat doesn’t just give us energy.  The things we eat influence what ingredients are available for our body to use when it needs to grow, repair, fight disease, defend us against cancer, or maintain body parts and functions. The quality of nutrition is just as important for our pets – perhaps even more so.

Dogs and cats grow to adulthood much faster than us, becoming fully grown at only 2 years old, they then continue to age much faster – each year as much as a human does in about 7 years.

Pet Foods are manufactured by a wide range of companies. We have elected to carry foods that come from world-renown companies that do a lot of nutritional research. They are constantly looking for ways to improve the health of pets.

Some of the benefits for pets fed high quality foods are:

  • A shiny coat; less tendency to be itchy or have allergies
  • Better breath; healthier teeth and gums
  • Less flatulence, vomiting and diarrhea; smaller, firm faeces
  • Better bone conformation and less arthritis
  • An immune system that is more able to resist infections and cancer
  • Slower signs of aging and better mental function


We can advise you about which food is best for your pet. We will consider factors such as the pet’s age, lifestyle, body condition, and health status. Our foods have a money back guarantee, so you can trial a bag, slowly introducing it into your pet’s diet. If after a couple of weeks, your pet will not eat the food, bring back the remaining and you will get all your money back!

Making sure that your pet’s diet is based on high quality nutrition is one of the best things you can do to help keep your pet healthy.
