Tiki Dog Food Review

Tiki Dog is a Washington-based pet food brand which was founded in 2005 (along with its sister brand Tiki Cat) by Christine and Robert Hackett. The company makes a range of canned foods that are suitable for feeding to dogs of all life stages. The website states “Tiki Dog Gourmet Whole Food was the first true gourmet dog food to hit the market, featuring whole human grade shredded or sliced meats and seafood, whole vegetables, and only 3% brown rice. We use healthy broth, not gravy, to process our prevention and treatment formulas for all life stages, providing a food that meets the most restrictive diets prescribed by veterinarians today. Tiki Dog Gourmet Whole Foods are the lowest carbohydrate canned formulas on the market, and lower in carbohydrates than any raw diet. Our unique processing provides top performance in palatability, and is a biologically appropriate natural prey nutrient profile for flourishing canines.”

One of the main aims of the brand is to create healthy foods that are both safe and palatable for your pooch. All ingredients contained in the foods are certified by the USDA as suitable for human consumption. The company has done rigorous taste tests to determine which cuts of meat and pieces of fish are most delicious to dogs, meaning that it's a great food for any pooches who are suffering from a loss of appetite. The meats and fish are always fresh, never frozen, which increases both the palatability and the nutritional value of food. Tiki Dog is also recommended by many vets for dogs suffering from certain conditions (such as kidney stones or irritable bowel syndrome) because it's low in sodium, iodine, magnesium, phosphate, carbohydrates, and has a low glycemic index. Not only does this brand care about your dog, it is also careful about its environmental impact. All fish ingredients are certified as dolphin safe by the International Dolphin Conservation Program and the company is a member of the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation.

All foods from Tiki Dog are designed to be highly digestible and as close to a dog's natural diet as possible. The bulk of each formula is made up from fresh meat or fish, with some vegetables and a small amount of carbohydrates, such as brown rice or sweet potato.
