amazon in the uk doesn't stock ziwipeak anymore, well at least not for dogs - its been longterm out of stock for a good few months now, I have ordered them from the past.
I spent 20 on the venison and fish, which imo is alot compared to the amount of what I could buy from a raw supplier ( just hope his delivery arrives today ) I don't think I will be buying zp again now, too expensive to risk the loss of quality and by the looks of things atm, I dont' think they will refund me ugh!

Oh good to know, I order my Fromm, Ziwipeak, and treats all at the same time, it all comes to over 50 dollars, at 49 you get free shipping. So I haven't thought about the shipping.

Hi there,

I know this is an older post....hopefully someone can help or has ideas. My chi has been eating the Venison for a long time now. All of the sudden (bag almost gone) he won't touch it any longer. He picks up a piece and spits it out on the ground. He's been doing this for over a week. I've had to supplement him with boiled chicken and carrots. The pet store owner said he might be "bored" of the flavor so I bought a bag of lamb. He spits that out too! Can't figure this out and why we won't eat it?! Another member suggested I put salmon oil on top and mix it in. I did that and he still won't eat it. I've heard there is a bad ingredient in the canned food called carrageenan. Is this harmful? Should I try switching to this? Thanks!

It only stays fresh for 6 weeks, if it is older then that it might be going bad and he can taste that. It has on the bag , not to feed after a certain length of time, so check that out. It is raw meat.

The price of ZP will certainly go up again as New Zealand is currently in drought which will force the price of stock up dramatically as farmers are forced to supplement their feed.

There's been an awful lot of Chis who've suddenly just stopped eating ZP or having reactions to it - I personally think it's the richness (fat) and protein levels which are through the roof compared to most commercial foods.

I also believe most dogs have an intuition that will stop them from eating anything they know will cause them problems. When mine suddenly refused to eat it daily, I simply feed it about every 4-5 or so meals, with the other meals being raw or grainfree kibble - they then seem to eat it quite happily.

I must say though, they hated venison & fish but none of mine like fish of any description except my cooked atlantic salmon.

My bag was replaced in the end, I think I might of had a dodgy batch - it does go off very quickly.
I've also gone on to buy the lamb ( idk why I did tbh! some sort of weird attachment to it lol? ) but only using it as topper now and I shall not be buyign from them again, nothing against them but I honestly believe the quality has deteriorated or changed.
My boy just doesn't seem to enjoy it or tolerate it as a meal anymore.

I contacted them to ask them if something had changed and included a couple threads from here to show them other people were having problems too besides me. I was hoping of going back to ZP and wondering if they could suggest why Jaxx was itching so bad with the last bag.
In the end I won't be buying from them anymore.
She basically told me that most people that she interacts with that has problems with ZP she finds that they were not feeding ZP in the first place or feeding other things along with it. It felt like she was telling me I was not telling her the truth about what Jaxx was eating. I told her Jaxx was eating only ZP and nothing else at the time he started itching with the last bag. She was quite rude and did not respond to me any more.
I was so pleased with ZP and their customer service when we started feeding it but from the last time I contacted them their customer service has definitely went down hill.
I love the idea of feeding raw without me having to deal with the meat but I don't want Jaxx itching all the time and his itching has stopped since we switched him off of ZP.

No way! I can't believe that she basically called you a liar. You would think that she would be nothing but helpful especially since she knows that you regularly share with so many people here. I'm offended that she just brushed you off. When we fed ZP and Odie had issues, we were only feeding ZP, no kibble.
