This is dog food with a difference.

Ethics

Australian through and through.

Sourced, made, and owned right here in Australia. We mix everything together in New South Wales using 97% locally-sourced ingredients. That 3%? That's coconut oil & vitamins we get from o/s to give him a boost that products grown in Australia can't.

Box

Nutritionally Complete.

We fine-tuned our recipe with an animal nutritionist to make sure every ingredient was spot on and mighty delicious.

Dog Food Subscription

Made fresh on subscription.

We use data to know what your dog needs and when they need it. The subscription model means no more late night dashes to the supermarket. Just fresh dog food delivered to your door without any artificial preservatives.

The Food

One is not better than the other, they are just different. It all comes down to what your dog needs and prefers.

If your dog has any known allergies to common proteins, then Kangaroo is the right place to start.

If your pup is going to grow up to be larger than 32kg, then they should get the Turkey, Lamb & Beef recipe while they are growing.

For all other dogs, it really comes down to taste .

It costs $69 for a 7.5kg box. But you can also get $10 off when you order two boxes at the same time, just like with our roo recipe.

Yes, this recipe is suitable for every breed of puppy, including large breed puppies.

Yes, this recipe is suitable for every breed of senior dog. If your older dog has any specific health concerns, just jump on live chat to check if it’s suitable for their needs.

Absolutely. Any dog, regardless of age, breed, or activity level, can enjoy this recipe.

We source the turkey from Inghams, with the lamb and beef also being 100% Australian and free of added hormones.

We have also started work on sourcing free range and RSPCA approved turkey. As we grow, we’re working on bringing more ethical production to the pet food industry improving the supply chain for everyone

Yes. Our two recipes have the same ingredients – except the animal protein. One uses kangaroo and the other uses three proteins: turkey, lamb, and beef. The same whole vegetables, vitamins, and oils are used, but the quantities are slightly different.

The kibble is approximately 14mm in diameter, which is quite a bit bigger than our Kangaroo recipe which measures at about 11mm in diameter.

Not right now. At this stage, we can only provide 11mm Kangaroo kibble or the larger 14mm Turkey, Lamb & Beef kibble.

Variety is the spice of life. We worked with our nutritionist to make the best food for large breed puppies – and everyone else too. For dogs that aren’t super sensitive, having different sources of proteins makes sure there are a large range of nutrients and flavours to keep them healthy and interested.

This 3-meat recipe initially came about after a shortage of kangaroo. This shortage meant that to get good quality kangaroo meat was going to cost more, which would in turn cost more to our Scratch customers. For some people – especially those with large dogs – the increase would mean they’d have to look elsewhere. So we got our heads together and asked: if it’s not kangaroo, what could be another great recipe?

The result was Turkey, Lamb & Beef: three proteins that are great for large breed pups without hitting the purse strings too much. It’s also good for pooches who don’t have too many intolerances or aren’t sensitive to particular meats.

If your dog has a diagnosed allergy to chicken, then it is best to go with the kangaroo recipe instead. The turkey is processed on the same production line as chicken, so there is a small chance that some will make it into the finished product. Better be safe.

Both are actually very high compared to most food on the market, especially for ones that don’t add protein concentrate from peas. We consider that 28%-32% is a sweet spot that provides all the protein your dog needs to thrive, without putting too much pressure on their digestive system and organs.

Single protein food is the way to go if your dog has not been doing well on other foods out there. While it may have been the protein or a grain that your dog was allergic to, our Single Protein Kangaroo recipe is your best bet to quickly find a food that your dog will like. It’s also the right choice if they just love roo!

The best thing to do is to request a sample to try. The pieces in our Turkey, Lamb & Beef kibble are bigger in diameter, but are still quite thin. Bigger kibble can slow down fast eaters, as well as improving dental health. Best to check first before you dive into a box.

You will need to follow the new feeding instructions that we emailed to you or you will find on our account page. They have slightly different levels of energy density.

Kibble size can have an impact on dental health. Larger kibble makes dogs chew more, rather than just swallow, so it can help keep teeth cleaner. You probably also should give your dog natural dental treats or raw bones to chew on too.

Start with the Kangaroo Single Protein. If that doesn’t help, then it is probably time to do a formal allergy testing or follow a strict elimination diet to identify what’s causing the allergy

How it Works

It’s really simple. You can find instructions on how to switch your pooch from one food on your account page

You sure can. If your pup has a history of stomach issues, it is always good to do a proper transition.

Not at the moment. You could do this with two separate subscriptions if you really want to alternate.

Most dogs will be fine switching between the two foods. But some will need to transition. If this is something you want to try, it’s best to test it out with your dog to see what works best for them
