ZiwiPeak helped heal my Pomeranian Charlie

10689469_340795072750650_800317033698189004_n

My 9 year old Pomeranian Charlie has been on ZiwiPeak for past three years… At the beginning of the year he was savagely attacked by a German Shepherd and virtually skinned alive… Long story short. It was only skin damaged and he has recovered beautifully… His scars can’t be seen even when u part his fur and his fur has grown back gloriously… I put it down to the fabulous food he’s on. He loves the Venison and Fish dried food… Thanks ZiwiPeak

Thank you ZiwiPeak!

Tabby and Ginge2

Thank you ZiwiPeak!

Our 11 year old Tabby girl was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and restrictive cardiomyopathy (heart disease) 2 years ago. We have been managing it so far with Methamizole gel applied to Tabby’s ears twice a day. However, recently we were told by our vet, despite increasing the dosage, that Tabby was becoming immune to Methamizole as a treatment. Her T4 readings were at 50 and 51, even with the increased dosage.

I decided to register Tabby for the radioactive iodine therapy and was advised to desist applying the Methamizole two weeks prior in order to aid the effectiveness of the treatment. One week into this and Tabby’s breathing became rapid at above 30 breaths per minute, her heart rate in the high 200 bpm. Our vet administered Tabby with a beta blocker to slow her heart rate down but unfortunately Tabby reacted badly and lost her faculties on the vet floor. She was immediately placed in an oxygen tank which helped save her life. We were moments away from losing Tabby that day, it was horrendous. Suffice to say I cancelled her booking for radioactive iodine therapy. I doubt Tabby would even have survived it.

After this, I was advised to put Tabby straight back on the Methamizole (even though it didn’t seem to be working) and take her home with a couple of diuretics and daily checks of her heart rate. She was poorly for at least a week following this episode and had no appetite. We did eventually get her to eat something with some help from an appetite stimulant.

It was at this point I knew I had to take Tabby’s health into my own hands. If the usual treatments for hyperthyroidism was not open to us, then I had to look more closely at her diet. After all, it was probably feeding Tabby supermarket pet food (despite paying top price for them) that resulted in Tabby’s decline in health anyway. After hours of research I came across a pet food called ZiwiPeak. ZiwiPeak is a NZ brand that uses only natural game in their pet foods, a diet more consistent with a cat’s (and dog’s) makeup and health. I discovered that this food could not be purchased at any supermarket or pet food outlet which brought me to the door of Irene Hess-Oates at “Nutrition and You”. Irene advised me over the phone that other clients’ pets had benefited greatly from the ZiwiPeaks diet.

So I collected two trays of the tinned cat food and threw out all of the Science Diet and other expensive tins and sachets purchased from the pet store. I then started both of our cats solely on ZiwiPeaks Lamb, Venison and Beef tins.

I am so happy to say that one month later, both animals have the softest coats and my dear Tabby’s latest T4 readings have fallen back to a normal 23! She has better mobility, her eyes are brighter and her breathing and heart rate are now completely normal. The vet asked me what I had been doing and I said the only change I had made was to Tabby’s diet. I can’t speak highly enough of the ZiwiPeak natural pet food. Tabby no longer needs any beta blockers or diuretics and I am hoping to start reducing her dosage of the methamizole soon too!

A big thank you to ZiwiPeaks for putting one of the best animal diets on the market. Your food has made such a difference to our cats and definitely to our happiness!

Happy Seizure Dog

Extract from the Blog www.happyseizuredog.blogspot.co.nz

“We found Ziwipeak lamb which is an excellent air dried raw food made in New Zealand – very pricey – but not as much as vet bills for emergency care. It is very high in fat and protein for a dog food”.

Hypoallergenic Maine Coon Thrives on ZiwiPeak!

ellie

I wanted to thank Kimberly and the entire ZiwiPeak crew for creating this amazing food for our animal companions. My Maine Coon, Ellie, is very hypoallergenic and the Vet suggested a prescription dry brand to help with her itching. I tried the recommended brand and it was okay for a couple of weeks, but then Ellie went right back to scratching herself even more than before. I had to do my own research and stumbled on ZiwiPeak, thought I’d give it a try and Ellie has been itch free for 2 years now! I could not be happier. My other kitties have decided they want it too, so now I am feeding four very happy campers. Also, their customer service is second to none! Do your animal pals a favor and try this food. You and they will be happy you did.

Cheers!

Picky eater LOVES ZiwiPeak

10551625_10152655945839905_8696034295870769515_o

Cassie (my 12 year old very picky eater that I adopted from our local Humane Society shelter last summer after her owner died) is now eating about half ZiwiPeak Rabbit/Lamb or plain lamb. My goal is to have her eating 100% ZiwiPeak if possible, because I am so impressed with the quality ingredients of your cat food. But Cassie is a challenge to say the least! She only weighs 6.5 pounds, mostly because she is such a picky eater I think.

Thanks for a great Cat food.

Best regards,

Thank you for this great nutrition and my dog’s health!

IMG_20140204_171303

Hello ZiwiPeak… I just wanted to say that I just opened a bag of your new process for greater uniformity. Honestly, I don’t think I would have noticed. I have 3 rescue dogs and 2 of them are a large breed. The third is a Jack Russell and ALL of them LOVE ZiwiPeak. Old or new, this is one of the BEST foods I can give my fur-kids.
Thank you for this great nutrition and my dog’s health.

Thanks John H., Erica, Chloe the Golden, Hope the Maremma and Dudley the Russell Terrier.

Big Thanks from Liberty and Justice!

Liberty and Justice would like to thank the ZiwiPeak crew for having such a wonderful product. As prior raw feeders we needed a simpler form of feeding and one that packed in all the nutrients my two really need on a daily basis. We’ve fed ZiwiPeak and ONLY ZiwiPeak if it hasn’t been raw.

We just wanted to thank you guys for your hard work and dedication, it means a lot to our futures.

I Trust My Dogs!

The enthusiasm they show when I open the pouch is something they have never done with any food or dog treats. The cost is well worth it if they are healthy and happy.
Highly recommend!

Thanks for making such a great product.

Why we love ZiwiPeak…

Nymphadora

There are several reasons that ZiwiPeak is great not just for Nymphadora, but for any small, toy or teacup dog.  When I first got Nymphadora, I did some research into chihuahuas.  There were a few things that I found that were of concern for almost all of small dog breeds.

First off is the most troubling, hypoglycemia. So many small dogs (especially chihuahuas) are prone to hypoglycemia. Although the first thing people usually think of when they think of chihuahuas is their shaking, it really is not natural for any living being to shake.  Feeding your dog several smaller meals a day will help keep your dog from shaking.  I have found that free feeding your dog does not always work.  A dog will eat if they are hungry enough, but if they are distracted by petting or other attention or activity, they will delay eating.  This causes a drop in blood sugar that is not healthy.  Also dog food that contains high levels of carbs (usually things like grains) cannot help regulate your dog’s blood sugar.  Why we love ZiwiPeak for handling our blood sugar:  ZiwiPeak is a natural dog food that is naturally low in carbs.  It is also very easy to portion.  Nymphadora (a teacup chihuahua) eats approximately 10 pieces per meal, and usually 6-7 times a day.

Second concern was about her teeth.  Small dogs have small mouths, gums and teeth.  Even dog food marketed for small dogs can be difficult for small dogs to chew, especially dry.  Smaller dogs can sometimes have crowded teeth, their baby teeth do not always fall out before their adult teeth start to erupt, causing difficulty with chewing.  Why we love ZiwiPeak for our tiny teeth:  Air dried ZiwiPeak is easy to chew.  Unlike jerky made for humans, there is no endless chewing.  It is also easy to digest.

Although I am listing this third, it is also a main concern for small dogs.  Weight management.  Many small, toy or teacup breeds have joint issues.  Extra weight can cause irreparable damage to a dog’s hip and knee joints.  A few extra ounces may not seem like a lot, but the daily wear and tear of carrying those ounces can have devastating consequences for your companion.  While knee and hip replacement is fairly common in humans, it is still in relative infancy for your dog.  Why we love ZiwiPeak for our healthy weight:  It has everything we need, but nothing we do not.

And why are we literally flipping for ZiwiPeak now?  Because now ZiwiPeak comes in a small dog sized 16 ounce bag that is perfect for Nymphadora.  With this new sized bag, the chances of the pieces being unbroken is much higher than before.  Each time we handled the bag some pieces would break and when we finally got to the bottom (almost 2 months later with the 5.5 bag) there were quite a few crumbs.  Nymphadora still enjoyed the crumbs, but it makes portioning a bit trickier.

Thanks
Perry & Nymphadora.
