YUP! Limited, Simple Ingredients…which we LOVE!

In terms of their Philosophy, ZiwiPeak is dedicated to using the finest ingredients, matching a WILD PREY DIET to provide for long-term health and well-being.  ZiwiPeak believes excellent nutrition is vital to pets; the key to providing the best diet possible is a deep understanding of what a dog or cat requires – how its digestive system functions.

Although this brand is a little more expensive than other products (certainly more expensive than those using artificial/filler ingredients), the difference shows in pet health and longevity.  To ZiwiPeak, It’s NOT about cutting corners, It’s about building trust between themselves and their customers, and between their customers and their pets.

Skinz | Catfish, Cod + Salmon

Many are unaware of the nutritious benefits fish can bring to a dogs’ diet.  Sure, it may make them fart a bit more than usual, but isn’t that…well, healthy?

A great substitute for dogs with common protein allergies (beef, chicken, lamb), a diet with tasty FISH has been proven to:

1.) Bolster a Healthy Skin and Coat (Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids)
2.) Improve Digestion (Lean Protein)
3.) Perk-Up Joint Mobility (Anti-inflammatory – Great for Senior Dogs)
4.) Help in the Development of Vision and Brain Function (DHA/EPA – Great for Puppies)
5.) Boost Immune System (Natural Vitamins/Minerals)
6.) Prevent Cardiovascular/Heart Disease (Low in Saturated Fats and Meaningless Calories)

Like the zest of a lemon, the SKINS of FISH are are a nice way to reward your dog with healthy properties, without the risk of weight gain and/or a protein overload.  Best fed cooked, check out these dehydrated Cod Skins, Catfish Skins and Salmon Skins at thaMUNCHbox.com.

MUNCH love!

Note: We ALMOST forgot to tell you that these treats have been CAT APPROVED!

Liver + Lung | tha Perfect Training Treats!

When it comes to how some canned and dry food is made/processed, we understand why organ meat gets a bad rep.  Mixed/cooked at high temperatures with unhealthy food waste, it’s no wonder why these nutrient-rich meats become un-noticed, shoved under the blanket term “by-product.”

However! We agree with Dr. Becker:

“Organ meats are part of the natural diet of wild canines and felines, and fresh unprocessed organ meats provide superior nourishment to pet dogs and cats”

This, is why we RUV organ meats as treats.  Two in particular, are the Liver and Lungs.  Although unprocessed is best, we know that not every dog is keen on the raw texture.  So, we like the idea of boiling, baking and/or dehydrating.

Common sources for these delicacies include:

– Beef
– Bison – Milder in flavor than beef (lean protein)
– Chicken
– Duck – Novelty Protein (Good for dogs with Allergies/Sensitive to common meat)
– Lamb
– Pork – Low in Sodium
– Rabbit – Novelty Protein (Good for dogs with Allergies/Sensitive to common meat)
– Turkey – Low in Sodium
– Venison – Novelty Protein (Good for dogs with Allergies/Sensitive to common meat)

Both Liver and Lung are wonderful sources of…

– Protein
– Fat
– Vitamin A
– Vitamin B Complex (B6, B12, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Folic Acid)
– Vitamin C
– Vitamin K
– Fatty Acids (Omega 3 + 6)
– Essential Amino Acids
– Iron
– Zinc
– Manganese
– Folate
– Phosphorus
– Copper
– Selenium

Note: Please be cautious when it comes to Liver treats.  High in vitamin A, this organ meat is not recommended if you plan on or are already giving a Vitamin A supplement; you want to be mindful of a Vitamin A overdose.
