Diet Formulation

At Otago Petfoods, we understand that dogs are not just pets; they are family members who deserve the utmost care and attention, especially when it comes to their health and nutrition. Food allergies can be a troubling issue for many dogs, leading to discomfort, skin issues, and a range of digestive problems. Our mission is to provide specialised pet food recipes that cater specifically to the needs of your dog, ensuring they receive the nutrition they need without the ingredients that cause them harm.

Food Allergies & Intolerances

Our approach is simple: Create high-quality, delicious pet food that eliminates allergens while providing complete and balanced nutrition. Our recipes are based on AFFCO standards, ensuring that your pet receives the best nutrition possible, while excluding the ingredients that cause problems.

Why Specialised Nutrition?

Just like humans, dogs can be allergic to a variety of ingredients commonly found in commercial pet foods. These can include beef, dairy, wheat, gluten, egg, chicken, lamb, soy, pork and fish. Food allergies in dogs can manifest as skin conditions, gastrointestinal issues, and other health problems. By providing a diet tailored to avoid the allergens that your dog is reactive to, we can help alleviate these symptoms and improve the quality of life for your dog.

Recipe Options

Grain-Free Options: For dogs allergic to grains, we can offer a variety of grain-free recipes that are not only nutritious but also delicious. Limited Ingredient Diets: Limited ingredient diets are designed to minimize the number of food sources, reducing the chance of allergic reactions Novel Protein Sources: We can use novel protein sources like venison, horse, rabbit and fish, which are less likely to cause allergic reactions in dogs. Supplemental Nutrition: Our recipes are fortified with vitamins and minerals to ensure your dog receives all the necessary nutrients for a healthy life.
