Yes they love it :) And it doesn't work out as dear as it seems as they eat a lot less of it than other foods.

I was wondering last week on another ziwipeak thread if they liked the venison and fish version, as it was the only one in 5kg packs (which I break up and freeze into smaller portions as it works out a good bit cheaper) well I bought it and they love it as much as the Venison or Lamb :)

Yay! That's so great to hear. ZiwiPeak is awesome. (I'm thankful we have little dogs instead of Mastiffs. ha)

;) So glad you're still loving it as is your crew! Ya, I agree...thank goodness for little dogs! haha BTW, we got the venison/fish last weekend & my pups love it as well. I find the stink less offensive as lamb. I don't really have a weak stomach...I'm pretty tough as far as that goes. But for anyone wondering - if you can stomach the lamb you can stomach the venison/fish. :D

I actually think the Ziwi lamb and the venison smell kinda good. Lol! I mean not good as in yummy I want to eat some, but for a dehydrated raw it smells kinda good. Lol! Better then kibble....yuck! ;)

LOL...yeah, something about the lamb just turns me off for one reason or another? I actually like the venison & venison/fish! And the wet ZiwiPeak...love that smell (short of the tripe LOL). But I'm weird...I like the smell of wet dog food anyway. I'm a weirdo I guess! haha

Ugh,tripe! :( How our dogs gobble it up is beyond me...yuck!
I haven't tried the venison with fish yet. I give them fish oil already, so do you think giving them the venison with fish would be to much fish? I just ordered a bag of venison so maybe I'll give the venison with fish a try next time. :)
Yes, according to my husband and son, I'm a weirdo too! Lol!! :)

Hmm, I dunno about too much fish. All the ZP's have fish oil added anyway plus the wet has a bit of flaxseed oil. I haven't been adding fish oil since starting it to be honest. Not sure if I should or not since it's already in the mix? Hmmm....

Heather do you mix the ZP wet with the dehydrated? Mine love the Venison and Fish dehydrated. I never thought about trying wet too.

Yeah, well I just toss a tbsp or so in with the dehydrated & about 2oz of water. I don't really mix it per say. Keeps them interested & I can add a little more variety in there as well. I also think it "bulks" it up a tad as well since they're basically getting an extra days worth of food (in wet) a week. For some reason they were getting a wee bit skinny on just the dehydrated alone in what they suggested feeding. So that helps. :)

Another ZP fan, Zoey loves it. I only give her small amounts at a time as she likes it when it is fresh. I used to just leave some out and when it sat out she would not eat it as it wasn't as fresh. I free feed with Orijen as well.

Kay, Brody was the same way! He loves his Ziwi but only if it's fresh. I learned that the hard way when I accidentally left the ziplock undone and it dried out a little. Nope, he wouldn't eat it. So now when I buy a bag I portion it out into ziplocks, squeeze all the air out, and stick them in the freezer. Then just grab one out of the freezer when I need it. Works great!

Is Orijen a kibble-type food or what? Looking at the ingredients online it looks really good!

Ok, I don't know how you can stand the smell. Fortunately mine didn't like it beyond day one. I got so worked up on the smell that what didn't bother me the first day, started to bother me the second and by the third day, I was literally gagging and holding my breath alternately trying to feed this food. SOmething way too rich and "organ-like" in that food that just turns my stomach. I am shuddering at the thought.
