Dog Food Meat

More meat

Scratch contains more meat than just about any kibble in Australia. We top off each recipe with whole veggies, healthy oils, and extra vitamins for a resilient gut, shiny coat and tough immune system.


Using better Australian produce

Our co-founder Doug made recipes for the big guys, but grew angry seeing how they saved costs. A filler too far, he set his mind to making the best puppy food – one full of better, whole Australian ingredients from sources he could trust.


From pup through to old gal

Scratch is 100% nutritionally complete for all life stages. Traditional adult dog food is designed for ‘maintenance’. Not cool! Food is medicine in our book and Scratch will help them grow with the best puppy food that prevents problems later in life.

Plus a personalised feeding plan as they grow

We’ll get the low down on your dogs and give each a personalised scoop and feeding plan, even if they’re different breeds or ages. We’re always on live chat and ready for dog photos if you have any questions.

Some tips in evaluating the best puppy food

Best Puppy Food

Dog food is unregulated. Ask questions of brands

Yep, it’s true. Despite our furry compadres meaning so much to us, dogs are still objects in the law and their food is complely unregulated. Scratch is the only brand to reveal every % of every ingredient, and get to know your dog from day 1.

Food can contain as little as 5% of the meat advertised

Crazy, huh. Store-bought foods are members of the PFIAA (code for pet food industry of Australia). Being a member gives the green light to promote a meat in the name, but to have as little as 5% of it in the recipe. A little dodgy we think!

Avoid anything showing ‘and/or’

Recipes change all the time without anyone being the wiser. Look out for ingredient lists that say vague things like ‘may contain’, or ‘and/or’ that suggests brands switching to whatever ingredients are cheaper at the time. Scratch uses the exact same ingredients everytime so you know what’s really in your puppies food.

Make sure everything is weighed evenly

Ever wonder how some foods promote over 60% meat? They’re sneaky buggers dog food companies. In kibble, all food is dehydrated before food is made. Sneaky brands compare meat when fresh (and weighing more) to vegetables when dehydrated (and light) to make the meat content seem more than what it really is.
