Australia has access to some of purest raw ingredients in the world, and has manufacturing guidelines and quality standards that are revered around the globe.
Ivory Coat Companion Goods is a licensee of the Australia Made Campaign, and therefore abides to a code of conduct and guidelines for the sourcing and manufacture of their Australian Made products, all of which bear the Australian Made logo.
We are committed to Australia and to showcasing Australian products and quality to the world.
As we manufacture within Australia from Australian ingredients none of our food is irradiated.
What is the RSPCA's stand on pet food irradiation?
"RSPCA Australia’s position is that pet food should not be irradiated. Currently there is a ban on the irradiation of imported cat food and we commend the Minister for implementing this ban. This ban followed scientific evidence and the recent ‘Orijen cats’ cases that showed an association between ingestion of irradiated imported cat food and severe neurological impairment, which in some cases was fatal. There is also a requirement that irradiated imported dog food be labelled ‘Must not be fed to cats’." RSPCA Australia Website.
Ivory Coat Companion Goods will never sell irradiated products.
Why grain free dog food
At Ivory Coat Companion Goods we have worked closely with animal nutritionists and veterinarians to make this nutrient-dense, grain free, hypoallergenic food the best option for your companion to ensure long term natural health.
Is grain free right for your companion?
There are a number of reasons why informed pet owners are making the switch to quality grain free foods, including these:
Many dogs are allergic to corn, wheat, and other common grains, which can cause digestive and/or skin issues.
Grains, especially wheat, corn and rice, are commonly used as ‘fillers’ in low quality foods for bulk rather than nutrition.
We always recommend, when choosing a food for your companion, whether grain free or not, you start by reviewing the ingredients that make up that food. After all, a food is only as good as its ingredients.
The first 5 ingredients make up the majority of the food. Would you eat the first 5 ingredients in your current pet food product?
Always make an informed choice and, if in doubt, speak with your trusted veterinarian. Ask them what, and more importantly why, they recommend a particular food for your companion.
