2. Earthborn Holistic
Another natural pet food newly stocked at zooplus, Earthborn Holistic dry dog food is a species-appropriate diet packed with valuable nutrients to promote your dog’s health. This complete kibble is made in the USA from regional, sustainable ingredients. Earthborn Holistic dog food is both grain- and gluten-free, and is also completely free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. This exciting brand looks set to win over especially eco-friendly customers, as it supports a number of projects that help to care for the planet, including “Terracycle”, which collects the product’s 100% recyclable packaging, and the “UPC’s for Trees” programme, which plants trees in areas affected by deforestation.
This grain-free dry pet food takes its inspiration from the natural, carnivorous diet of dogs and cats. Made to a unique recipe and exclusive to zooplus, Purizon pet food uses premium-quality fruit, vegetables and herbs, plus at least 70% meat and fish. The gentle manufacturing process ensures the vital nutrients are protected and helps to preserve the natural flavour of the ingredients. The Purizon dog food range has recently been expanded by the new Single Meat varieties, which each boast only one source of animal protein. This makes them suitable for sensitive dogs on an exclusion diet.
4. Markus Mühle
We’ve blogged about the merits of cold-pressed dog food, such as Markus Mühle, before. In case you missed it, this innovative manufacturing process avoids using high temperatures or steam to cook the raw ingredients, but instead mixes them together, presses them into kibble pellets, and then heats them quickly at cooler temperatures of 40-75°C. This enables more of the essential nutrients in the ingredients to remain intact, resulting in a more ‘natural’ product. The best-known product in the Markus Mühle dry dog food range is Markus Mühle NaturNah, which already has over 130 five-star customer reviews at zooplus. But did you know that Markus Mühle also offers a range of other cold-pressed dog foods that have been specially developed to meet your dog’s individual nutritional needs at each lifestage?

Another under-appreciated natural dog food made using a gentle cold-pressing process, Lupo dry food is 100% natural and ideal for dogs with nutritional sensitivities. The Lupo Sensitive range is completely grain-free, while Lupo Natural Swiss Chicken is made from mouth-watering chicken sourced exclusively from selected Swiss farms that guarantee species-appropriate, humane breeding. This makes Lupo Natural ideal for dog owners that not only want to feed their pet a natural diet, but also care about general animal welfare.
