K9 Natural raw frozen lamb made my dogs sick! I’m spreading the word because I tried this product and didn’t make it through the entire bag before my dogs became sick and one ended up in the hospital and is still sick and not getting better. I did the proper transition to the new food did a half cup first day with old food then another half cup following day with old food and all he’ll broke loose. It’s been about a month and she’s been on a few prescription meds and now on a blan prescription diet. When I contacted the company they opened an investigation to see if it came from them. The vet said it came from the new raw food but since she didn’t specify that it came from k9 natural raw food the company said they’re not going to do a single thing about it. They refused to talk to the vet directly because they’re afraid that she will say it came from the bag of raw food I bought from k9 natural. It’s about a month now since she went to the hospital and she’s lost a serious amount of weight with no improvement. When the company emails each other at head quarters I don’t think they realize that I’m still in the email list and can see everything they write. I’m spreading the word because they claim they are about the pets but ended up screwing my dog and myself over pretty hard and I hope this never happens to any other pets!

Just bought our first 4kg box of K9 Natural Lamb, and our Mini Schnauzer's are going mad over it. They have always been RAW fed and one in particular is extremely fussy and wont touch cooked or kibble. From the first meal onwards (we've finished a trial 500g bag) my dogs are eagerly waiting for their food and love the gravy than is produced by adding the water.Exceptional quality, this food should be a 'must try' especially for dogs with delicate digestive systems. £100 sounds an awful lot of money but a 4kg box makes up to 16kg of food once reconstituted, and goes a long way. Our Mini's are costing around £5 per week (both) to feed and we know they are getting good, nutritious, natural food that their digestive systems were intended to have. Can't recommend highly enough...FABULOUS...worthy 5 stars, no question!

We have a Bedlington Terrier coming up to 9 months old. He came eating Burns puppy kibble which he loved. But last August we decided to change to a higher scoring food and bought a small pack of K9 Freeze Dried Beef .following a superb recommendation from a friend. The shop told us to read the web site - fantastic detail and totally transparent. But it noted the large bags as being out of stock. As small bags carry a 50% price premium, we looked elsewhere and decided to try Naturea dry. Alfie loved that, too, and all the signs were very good, great product, great information, lots of tail wagging. But as that big bag began to reach the bottom, we tried to buy another - so far as we can tell, Naturea has packed it's bags in the UK and gone home to Portugal. So we checked the K9 Natural web site again - still out of stock. That caused me to buy a big back of Orijena - supplier said "Every dog I've sold this for has loved it - don't bother wasting your money on a small bag first". So, of course, Alfie looked at it and walked away. So strong minded is this little precious, we feared he'd gone on hunger strike. So there we were adding stuff so he'd eat. As we spent Christmas with young kids who Alfie adored, lacing food was rather more difficult. And when we came home, it was as if this had become very personal - he even started being choosey about the delights we were adding to the Orijena.. He really did look at us with a determination that we've never experienced with another animal. Desperate, we mixed in some Burns that we still had. He ate it - but the signs were not good. Back to the K9 site - small bags OK, big bags out of stock. But this was our new, much loved, best friend. So a decision was taken to face the cost of small bags. We crossed our fingers and opened the one we'd bought last August - directly we'd opened the bag, there was Alfie wagging his tail, looking up to the worktop in eager anticipation. What a change - off of hunger strike, no tummy effects, perfect stools. We'd all got a glimpse of heaven. So we rang Viovet and were astounded to be told they could supply a big box - despite the K9 website still saying it was out of stock (as it had done for the last 6 months). But we needed a small bag to tide us over. We got that locally, no problem. But it had changed from the bag we bought last August - different colour printing, even a different name - now called Beef Feast. Alfie doesn't seem to think it's any different. But I decided to check. First the K9 UK website - unchanged from before, no mention of Beef Feast. So I Googled K9 Beef Feast. That got me the manufacturer's web site in New Zealand. Very impressive. Full of Beef Feast, no mention of the name we'd bought last August. So I checked their Canadian web site - Beef Feast, again. So clearly they have re-named the product and, checking as best I can, changed the proportions of the constituents. I was beginning to worry - what about the vitamins and minerals? I couldn't find that information on the web. Although the sites have become more "flashy" (a common trend) so the information may be hidden there somewhere. In the meantime, Alfie has just voted enthusiastically for the last of the packet of Beef Feast, we are waiting in to receive the big box from Viovet (I really cannot praise them highly enough - included in the much discounted price is delivery by DPD who send texts AND emails telling us when they will be arriving - and you can even check where the driver is on an interactive map - that's service!) wondering what will be in the box - the same as we bought last August or the new Beef Feast. I have sent the manufacturers an email asking why the changes in proportions and where's the information on vitamins and minerals. But Alfie still votes the product a 5 star - but he doesn't have to pay for it. Our big worry - will an updated review by the Which Dog Food Team downgrade the product?

An update on my last post. I emailed K9 Natural in New Zealand and received a very helpful, prompt, reply along with all the vitamin and mineral information.. K9 Natural Beef Feast and Beef Gourmet are one and the same product. Marketing regulations in the USA have caused the name change to Feast and USA testing requirements have caused a change in details on the bag (these figures may be more to Whichdogfood Team's liking, as less fat). The UK web site is wrong to say 4 kg boxes are out of stock - even my local shop could supply that size (albeit at a much higher price than Viovet). And if you email K9 Natural at their head office in New Zealand, the response is prompt (the UK address does not respond). The 4 kg box is also a premium product in itself - good and strong, good handle, a moisture-proof bag liner and a good, strong, scoop. No more split bags for dog to get into on the quiet! So despite the price, we think this product fully deserves its 5 stars. I think I ought to say we have no connection with K9 Natural or Viovet - the food simply seems to be perfect for our Bedlington and Viovet simply meets our idea of what customer service should be like - and very pleasantly, too..
