About Zignature Dog Food

Learning From Nature

Learning From Nature

Zignature took all of nature's best ingredients and added key nutrients to create a dog food with complete nutrition. In these Physiologically Tuned formulas, meat always comes first, and they've eliminated common allergy-inducing proteins and fillers that are hard to digest. These grain- and gluten-free recipes feature premium proteins, low glycemic carb sources and a limited number of ingredients. It's exactly what your pup should be eating—nothing more, and nothing less.

Meat-First Philosophy

The first ingredient in any list is the most important, because it tells you what the majority of the food is made of. Some commercial pet foods take the easy way out with high-starch carbs near the top of the list. In each of Zignature's dry foods, meat not only comes first, but also second. A quality animal protein source starts off the recipe, followed by a meat or fish meal for an extra helping of the amino acids your pet needs and the flavor he craves.

Recipe for a Happy Tummy

Recipe for a Happy Tummy

All of Zignature's formulas are free of the most common canine allergen—chicken. And that includes chicken eggs, meal and by-products. As hypoallergenic foods, both wet and dry formulas also avoid the usual sources of stomach upset, including gluten, grains, corn, wheat, soy and dairy. Zignature never uses binding agents that are full of simple carbs and starches; instead, these recipes have low glycemic legumes that deliver extra protein and fiber.

Simple Is Best

Zignature isn't just the diet nature intended—it's even better. They've improved on nature's recipe to give your pup the right amount of each nutrient, and they've done it with the fewest possible ingredients. Just like meals in the wild, these recipes are limited in content for easy digestion and less chance of food sensitivities. These limited ingredient diets have single protein sources, so they're easy to rotate to give your dog a taste of something new.

Simple Is Best
Only the Best Ingredients

Only the Best Ingredients

To create these nourishing dishes, Zignature gathered the best possible ingredients from trusted sources around the world. Trout, salmon and whitefish all come from the Pacific waters of the Northwest; turkey is raised in the Midwest; duck comes from farms in Western France; kangaroo is brought over from Australia; and venison and lamb are delivered from New Zealand farmlands. Healthy fruits and veggies are harvested from several North American farms based on the season.


Zignature makes nutritious formulas with no artificial flavors, preservatives or colors.

CHICKPEAS: Low-glycemic legumes that promote stable blood sugar and provide an excellent source of dietary fiber, extra protein and copper.

FLAXSEED: Derived from whole, ground seeds of the Flax plant for an outstanding offering of omega-3 fatty acids for coat health, plus soluble fiber for digestion.

ALFALFA MEAL: A natural grass that's rich in vitamins A and C, niacin and calcium, and it also makes a great source of protein and fiber.

SUNFLOWER OIL: Pressed from sunflower oil, it supplies the omega-6 essential fatty acids that your pet needs to maintain skin and coat health.

  • Great For Weight Gain!

    By on

    My dog loves this stuff! So much that without it he won't even eat his dog food! This definitely has helped him to gain some weight as he can be somewhat of a picky eater, if he does not get something new every now and then he tends to starve himself until he realizes he's only got one kind of food. I mix this in with some of his Zignature kibble and he finishes everything on his plate!

  • They LOVE this blend!

    By on

    I happened upon the Zignature brand by accident and liked that is didn't have grains. I tried a small bag of the dry food and then the canned food. My two dogs love it! I almost stopped buying it due to cost but decided to look on Chewy and other sites. Chewy had the best price and selection compared to other web sites as well as the specialty pet stores.

  • My puppy is crazy for this!

    By on

    Usually, whenever puppies are fed wet food in general sometimes they have liquid poop but this wet food sets the bar for all wet food. After working at SPCA, I have seen the difference wet food can do when added to dry food for a pup or adult dog, Zignature you are awesome! Not once did my puppy have liquid poop, he has been eating this with Earthborn dry food. The two in combination is amazing and my pup is looking healthy and well. He is active, coat is shiner and soft, and most importantly he cannot resist the amora of this.

  • My Dogs Approve

    By on

    I'm very pleased with Zignature canned foods. This was my first purchase of the Zssential multi protein formula (previously used the duck formula) and I was very pleased with the consistency for mixing with their dry food as well as their approval of the Zssential taste. I believe they liked it even better than the duck. I will definitely purchase the Zssential formula again.

  • Great Food!

    By on

    My senior beagle loves this food! I had been feeding her Zignature kibble already, but she recently had surgery and wasn't feeling up to eating as much. She devours this stuff! And honestly, it doesn't smell that horrible. I mix 1/2 can with some of the kibble, and she finishes her food now. Gracie is eating high on the hog, for sure! I would recommend any canned Zignature food.

  • Great Quality + Pup LOVES it

    By on

    I was looking for a high quality food to feed to my vizsla puppy after I phased him off his puppy food. I feed him the Zignature Limited Ingredient Turkey Formula and this Zssential canned food. He loves it...basically prances over to his bowl when I set it out for him. I love that he's getting multiple proteins from one food source. Will be purchasing again!

  • The Formula Has Changed

    By on

    I've noticed the last few cases of Zssential food are a lot drier. I liked this variety best because it was wetter compared to their other varieties and easier for my dogs to eat. This is now just as dry and sticky as the others. I'll buy this for a while longer until I can find a replacement with the desired consistency.

  • My dogs love this!

    By on

    I had been feeding my 2 dogs another brand, and they were turning their noses up at it. I wanted to try this one because the ingredients are so high quality, so I gave it to my picky dogs who went crazy for it. After about 2 weeks with this food, their fur is so shiny, and they are happy and healthy. Love it!
