ZIWI® Peak gently air-dried foods combine the best of raw diets with the safety and convenience of dry foods. With a mouth-watering 96% free-range venison, organs, green mussels, and bone, our delicious PeakPrey® recipe helps you and your pet live your best lives, together.
This novel protein is perfect for all life stages and breeds, including dogs and puppies with food sensitivities or even the most selective eaters. For a dog with allergies, a limited ingredient diet helps to determine and eliminate reactions from common pet food ingredients such as corn, wheat, soy, and some animal proteins. Starting with a low-risk allergy ingredient like venison and slowly introducing other proteins can quickly determine where the allergy resides, and as a result, can be eliminated from your pet’s diet completely.
Serve as a nutritious meal topper, mouth-watering treat, or complete meal. Simple, delicious, and full of tail-wagging nutrition.

Feeding & Storage Instructions
Feeding Guidelines
The best way to determine proper feeding guidelines for your pet is by utilizing our online feeding calculator found here. This tool allows you to enter in the unique characteristics of your pet to determine the proper feeding amount, including weight and life stage.
Transitioning to ZIWI
A sudden change in diet or overfeeding can result in digestive issues. ZIWI Peak is nutrient dense. A little goes a long way, don’t be surprised if you feed less! Introduce a new recipe slowly over 6-8 days, gradually increasing the amount of the new recipe while decreasing the old, until you are fully transitioned.
Ways to Feed
For optimum health we recommend you feed 100% ZIWI Peak. However, if you wish to feed ZIWI Peak 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.
Storage Instructions
We recommend you feed our air-dried food before the printed Best Before date and within 8 weeks of opening the package; however, these dates are intended as guidelines. If the product is not stored in its sealed bag, it can be exposed to air and/or moisture which could cause the food to become dry and brittle, or could create the potential for mold to grow; either of these would be an indicator that the food has not been stored properly and should no longer be consumed by your pet.

Quality food. Premium price.

I bought Ziwi Venison formula because I want to replace my dog's (a Boxer) sweet potato and venison (sweet potato should not be the primary ingredient in a dog's food due to starch content) kibble with one that has venison as the main ingredient. For this reason, you cannot go wrong with Ziwi Venison. Venison is a novel protein and does not cause the inflammation that other overused proteins are known to. For this reason, I also cook/feed my dog pure ground venison ordered from a local butcher. It, too, is pricey at $8.00/lb, but at least I know she's eating a good protein source. Bonus, too, that it Ziwi does not contain pea or chick pea meal which are suspect for contributing to DCM in dogs, and Boxers are already prone to it. Because of the price, I give it to her as her lunch "splash" with smashed fresh blueberries, a probiotic, and other supplements. She's 64# and I would be hard pressed financially to feed it to her at every meal, but would if I could afford it.

Our rescues babes love Ziwi! They see the Ziwi bags and begin sniffing and wagging their tails! Their coats are so soft & shiny and we feel good about feeding them air dried food! Just wish it was a bit more affordable.

Great quality novel food

I have a dog with high allergies to many foods revealed thru testing. Ziwi venison does not trigger her reactions and always provides firm stools - and she loves it! She is a big dog, so from a price point, I must rotate it in to the feeding schedule but I highly recommend you try it.

Princess Luca Approved!

I was looking for top quality sourced air-dried toppers and treats and I am glad that I found ZIWI Peak. My furbaby is allergic to beef, and lamb, venison, and mackerel & lamb are such great alternatives! She has very sensitive tummy and bit picky eater but she absolutely loves her topper and treat. I mix topper with her raw food and giving her chew treats for entertainment. I'm already planning on shopping some more. Highly recommend!!!
