At Healthy Active Pet we are passionate about helping pets be in their best health possible

We are a small business using only local Australian premium human grade ingredients and packaging. All products are made in regional Victoria too.

And if you have been looking at our Raw Food Air Dried Recipe and are thinking WOW that's expensive we wanted to explain why it is so expensive!

Plus we have been heavily hit with increased raw ingredient costs and please bear in mind our products are at least 70% protein with high quality human grade meat and we use turkey which is expensive.

We have also been hit with higher production and energy costs which are affecting a lot of business across Australia and our price per bag as of May 22 is $99.

So why is it so expensive? This is a premium and convenient product that only uses the highest grade and ethically sourced human grade food and that means it is expensive.

We also chose to use turkey as the main meat (not chicken or beef) which is a lot harder to source then chicken or beef and a lot more expensive

Each bag contains 3.6kg of fresh food and there are no fillers - just very high quality and lean protein plus some veggies and fruits plus wheatgerm oil, organic wheatgrass powder, organic kelp powder, organic tumeric powder and calcium

The protein in the product is very high and as there are no fillers or grains - this makes it a very premium and expensive product.

Then there is the cost of air drying it, the staff involved in this production and packing - which all means this is a premium air dried dog food - and we struggle to make any margin on the product but as we are so passionate about providing a healthy and 100% natural alternative to kibble we are committed to producing it.

We also hope that as we grow as a business we will be able to move to a bigger manufacturing production line where we will receive better rates that we can pass onto you the consumer.

If if it too expensive for you to feed - you could either use it as a topper for your dog as it is jammed with so many nutrients or you can make your own raw dog food at home and we have a huge selection of dog food recipes, meal plans and programs that you can use.

🇦🇺Our products are all made in Australia (regional Australia) and we only use Aussie human grade ingredients of the highest quality

😓And the process of each batch is quite intense so we can deliver the highest quality and highest nutrition dog food product

🥦Firstly we source all the fresh fruits and veggies, fish, meats and herbs from local suppliers in Australia.

🎗It is SUPER important for us that we are supporting other local Aussie businesses and this is why we source all ingredients locally.

💚Plus we only use local packaging manufacturers and use environmentally friendly and recyclable pouches.

🥕Then all the fruits and veggies have to be prepared (grated, diced, & steamed).

💨Then we air dry all the food which takes at least a week - and this ensures that all the goodness is sealed in.

🚫Nothing artificial is added. It is just raw food then air dried.

🦃In our Turkey & Sardine Complete Meal the ONLY ingredients in it are turkey breast, duck gizzards, sardines, duck liver, sweet potato, pumpkin, zucchini, strawberries, calcium, wheatgerm oil, organic tumeric powder, organic wheatgrass powder and organic kelp powder

📦Then the team put it all into the packaging and weighs it to make sure it is all correct (900g) and then when all the packaging is completed, it is sent to our warehouse for distribution to all our amazing customers.

And this is some footage to show the process happening right now and what happens every single month.

P.S we are 100% Aussie owned and a family business who are PASSIONATE about pet health and we are not owned or affiliated to any of the big pet food companies
