The Ziwi Difference

Ziwi carefully crafts their food to mirror the whole-prey, meat-rich diet dogs and cats require for a long, happy, healthy life. Their small, dedicated team proudly handcrafts Ziwi in small batches each day. With a passion for pets around the world, they are driven to put the very best of their New Zealand home into every recipe.

Free-Range, Grass-Fed

All ingredients are sourced from the green, free-range farms and blue, pristine oceans of New Zealand. Meats are sourced from humane, ethical and sustainably managed local farms. And fish is caught in the southern oceans of New Zealand, strictly managed to ensure maximum sustainability.

Air-Dried Recipes

Ziwi naturally preserves their dry dog and cat food by air-drying it, eliminating the need for artificial preservatives, salts, sugars or glycerines. Their slow, gentle, twin stage air-drying process results in a food that's as nutrient-dense and digestible as a completely raw diet, but safe and clean to handle, and can store for up to 21 months. A little goes a long way, the recipes are so packed with the good stuff

Moist Meal Options

Ziwi has moist dog and cat food recipe options too, Ziwi implements a small batch canning process to deliver high meat and moisture-rich recipes at higher can weights using the same free-range proteins that can be stored for up to three years.

Only the Good Stuff

Made with your pet's health in mind, Ziwi is made with absolutely no grains, corn, wheat, soy, rice, rendered meats, animal meals, meat by-products, cheap filler ingredients, starches like white potatoes and sweet potatoes, ethoxyquin, pea protein, salt, sugar, glycerine, artificial flavors or colors, antibiotics, growth hormones, or ingredients from China. Just pure New Zealand goodness that helps your pet thrive.

Happy Joints, Happy Pets

All Ziwi recipes include 3% New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussels, a natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin which support long-term joint health. The Green-Lipped Mussel may only be found in New Zealand, where it is farmed using ecologically-sustainable practices.

Questions & Answers

19 Customer Questions

Would I be able to use this food for ferrets?
Answer by ChewyDec 30, 2017
This food is specifically formulated for cats.

Is the lamb raw and dried or cooked then dried?
Answer by ChewyOct 10, 2017
Ziwi mixes their raw ingredients together, then lays them flat on trays, and places them in special air driers. The food gently air dries over many hours at a low temperature until it reaches the correct Aw (water activity level) to create a safe shelf stable product.

Would it be okay to mix this with Ziwi Peak's canned cat food? Or should it just be used alone?
Answer by ChewyOct 05, 2022
ZIWI Peak recipes can be mixed with another food such as raw meat, kibble, freeze dried, cans or any other food type you can at any ratio you like. ZIWI Peak can be fed in many different ways as your pet’s sole daily food, as a nutritious topper on your existing food or as a tasty treat.

Fantastic Cat Food

I have two sibling, year-old cats who are both allergic to chicken. One of them also has a difficult time with most fish. Do you know how hard it is to find cat food without any chicken or fish? But, here is Ziwi with some outstanding choices for my crew. They are crazy about Lamb and also Lamb/Mackerel both canned and dry. They like the dry more if I pulverize some of the nuggets before serving them. I do this easily with a tenderizing hammer. They are both doing really well on this brand. Their coats are thick and very soft (they are Turkish Angoras). Their vet originally put them on a prescription diet, which I tried for a couple of months, but it made their fur very coarse, and of course, the ingredients were horrible. So, thank you Ziwi, you came to the rescue! Great ingredients. Excellent health. Super-soft coats. Happy cats!

Potential issues

My cat threw up every time I gave her this cat food. I read other customers also having this same problem with this cat food, which makes me concerned and raises questions if there are any toxic ingredients or any issues in the production process causing this. Will not purchase again unless Ziwi announces that it has fixed any problems with the product.

Loved by a cat that rejects other dry food

our cat only eats canned food. We wanted to add dry. She hated all..until given many samples, and she chose this one..a lamb lover (they no longer make the wet lamb food she loved)

great product, expensive though

First off: the quality of the product is without question. It is great and good company practices. You do get what you pay for, but it is really hard to pay for for the majority of people. I actually first discovered this when I was volunteering (and using for myself) the local food bank, and the pet supply store donated some venison flavour that just expired. My cat loved it, I used it as a chow topper (~1/4 scoop over his other chow). He's a long, lithe, 14lb tabby who is outside a lot. When I discovered how expensive it was I switched to the lamb, the 2.2lb bag subscription, and bought it when he would lose weight in the summer otherwise because it is so calorie dense. If I fed him exclusively this food, I would spend more to feed him per month than I do for myself (and I am a chef). Some caution for purchasers: cats are notoriously picky eaters and may not like some flavours. This is really frustrating if you just spent over $50 on a bag of food. If your cat is a weirdo like mine who only likes "wild" sorts of meats like venison, salmon, pheasant, rabbit, etc but HATES chicken, turkey, and whatever "whitefish" they put in foods, then you are in luck with the venison or lamb. If your cat is the generic chicken eater, try that (but be aware that mussels are in there too, for those finicky non-seafood kitties). Find a rich friend who will let you mooch a baggie to try on your cat first if you can. Also remember, cats may take a day or two to adjust to anything new in their bowl, regardless of taste.

No more crying for food in the middle of the night

My cat has IBD and that means he can't tolerate many cat food recipes. Ziwi peak doesn't bother his tummy. He goes crazy for it. I do put a little warm water over the food and let it sit for a few minutes before feeding because the texture is like a jerky. The best part is it keeps him fulller for longer. No more crying for food in the middle of the night.

Good stuff for kitties

This is an updated review from the “shoe leather” review. I put this dry food in an old blender and ground it into tiny granules, then mixed it with some freeze-dried raw food, a bit of canned food, and warm water, and mixed it up. THEY LOVE IT! Since it’s highly concentrated, I only feed less than a teaspoon of the granules, plus the other foods. I keep it in an airtight glass jar to keep it fresh. The ingredients are phenomenal, so I’m glad I figured out a way to make this food work! I would’ve knocked off half a star for having to blend it, but it’s really not a big deal.

Tough as shoe leather

I was attracted to this food because of the high quality ingredients, but if it’s too hard to eat, all those great ingredients are wasted. These little pellets are hard as shoe leather! I make a soupy mix of ingredients for my cats using broth or water with a tiny bit of butter, with some freeze-dried raw food, a bit of canned food, and their nutrients and ut health powder. I soaked these bits for hours in the fridge, but they’re still very tough. If my cats are very hungry they’ll swallow the bits whole, but most often they eat everything else and leave these. This food is far too expensive to go to waste. I had high hopes for this cat food, but sadly I won’t purchase again and can’t recommend. If they could make the bits chewable I’d try it again.

Cats are not sure it's a winner

My cats initially thought this was great, but have taken to just picking at it over time instead of eating it at their mealtime. I have tried adding warm water or broth to it and it doesn't make them like it less or more, so not sure their reluctance. Ziwi makes excellent food so I hope my cats change their minds back, as this is pretty pricey, especially if they aren't willing to eat it
