Default Good news from Ziwipeak!

I sent a message asking about air-dried rabbit. I know that they have come out with a canned rabbit but was interested in seeing if they planned a rabbit in air dried.

Hope's holistic Vet recently suggested she not have chicken in her food nor treats. She went into great detail about warm and cool animals. Explained why she did not do well on lamb. She suggested duck for her. I recently have been giving them Stella & Chewy's freeze dried duck as an occasional treat. She mentioned that if ZP made duck, rabbit or even beef she'd be open to her being on those. When I protested that so many dogs have an issue with beef she said actually in her experience, she has seen far more dogs who have issues with chicken rather than beef.

So, here is my answer from Kimberly, Co-Founder and VP with Ziwipeak:
Hi Karen,
So nice to hear from you again.

I was delighted to hear that your doggies are healthy and still loving our Ziwi.

We do have trials organised later in the New Year but before we do this we will be introducing a Beef air-dried, antibiotic and hormone, grass fed from New Zealand. The Rabbit is only in a can at present.

Keep in touch.

Cheers
Kimberly


I will likely try the beef and then hope that the rabbit does well in trial and makes it to the market! Wanted to share.

That is good news! I wonder how it will compare price wise? I usually get the lamb because it is a few dollars cheaper and my two seem to do fine on any of the three formulas available.

Just a side note on the lamb, our previous German Shepherd had a terrible time with hotspots her whole life. I fed her a lamb based food because I thought that was good for her but since then I have read that lamb is a heat producing meat and not recommended when a dog has hotspots. I wish I had known that then. . I might could have saved poor Tesla some discomfort.

My holistic vet said Midgie was allergic to chicken too. I'd definitely be interested in trying the air-dried rabbit if/when they come out with it. It would be nice if they'd come out with duck too. Not sure if duck is considered poultry like the chicken & turkey, but since Midgie's never had duck, it might be another option for her.

Nice. I wish Izzie liked Ziwi. I bought a bag this month and Bella eats it no problem, Izzie has to be REALLY hungry. She smells it then goes away. I have tried dry, wet, wet broken up, and wet with her supplements mixed in. She chooses when she wants to eat it, and when she doesn't. Lil spoiled brat!

Wow, that's great news. I will definitely put the beef ZP in our rotation.

Thanks for sharing! I will be trying the beef when it's available. We've tried the venison and now we're on a bag of lamb, and i'm now starting to see some of the same things we did with the venison. I really really would like to include ziwi in Odie's diet, especially since a local pet store orders it for me. It will be interesting to see if the beef offers an improvement.

Karen, I'm curious about what the vet had to say about why Hope didn't do well on the lamb.

Lisa, Lulu is allergic to chicken, but she can eat duck.
