Default Ziwipeak

After reading rave reviews on ziwipeak food- I decided to give it a go with Rupert. I mixed a small amount in with his kibble to begin with and he went wild! Absolutely loved it! It's a shock because he has honestly never been bothered by his food before (with the exception of cheese and meat treats!)
Is the best way forward to continue to mix in with his usual kibble or feed exclusively with ziwipeak? It's quite expensive and not easily accessible here in the U.K. Does anyone know if any stockists? As he know wolfs down his food what's the best amount to feed him? He's currently 5lbs and well covered- could do with losing a little weight! Thank you! X

Pets corner sell it maybe google your local one. Also there are loads of sites you can buy it from that are based in uk.
As for feeding gradually reduce the kibble as a sudden change of food could cause the runs lol. Over the next couple of weeks slowly feed more and more ziwipeak.

Thats what I did and worked a treat others may say differently tho.

Thank you all. Have discovered there is a Pets corner very near me- so will explore that. They also stock Orijen, which I would like to try with ziwipeak to give variety. Not sure whether you should do this though? He's not got a sensitive tummy and tolerates things well. The local pet store told me to stick to the same variety of food and not change it? ( he's been on James Wellbeloved- on advice of vet) I'm definitely switching to ziwipeak and will keep him on that- see how it goes...

If you want to try Ojijen, introduce it slowly as you did with the ZiwiPeak. Orijen is a huge step up from James Wellbeloved in terms of quality and nutrition, it is as good as it gets as far as kibble goes.
You can feed ZiwiPeak exclusively if it suits your dog, some people find it a bit rich so prefer to feed it alongside a quality kibble or fresh raw.
There is no need to feed the same food all the time, this is just a marketing ploy by dog food manufacturers. Variety is key for optimal nutrition, even with dogs that don't adjust well to change offering different protein sources within the same brand is a good idea.
So as long as your dog's tummy can handle it, and you introduce any new foods gradually, feeding several different foods is a great idea. It can help to keep your dog interested in his meals too, after all who would want to eat the exact same thing day in day out?
Glad your boy loved the Ziwi, it is such a great product. Mine love it too, it is the only commercial dog food I feed. I feed raw, and they won't touch kibble now, but go loopy for a square of Ziwi.
