As pet parents, we understand the importance of feeding our dogs a high-quality diet. Although buying high-quality food can be expensive it pays off in the long run of your dog’s life with a reduced risk of health issues that are a result of improper nutrition. 

However, with a myriad of dog foods on the market these days, how are we to know which are the best? What brand of dog food to choose to ensure your fur baby receives the benefit of the right nutritional combination?  

The veterinarian team here at Your PetPA understand your dogs’ nutritional needs at each stage of their life, so to help you navigate the options, we’ve listed our Top 4 Dog Food Brands with respect to premium ingredients for health and happiness (all of which can be found on our online Shop!) 


1. Black Hawk

Black Hawk uses real meat and real veggies with all their products manufactured in rural NSW, with ingredients sourced in Australia. They support local farmers and regional communities through the ingredients that they buy and local community programs. 

The original Black Hawk recipe was developed when a passionate breeder applied this thinking to their dogs’ diet. They relentlessly searched for ingredients that had nutritional benefits. 

Black Hawk’s team of pet nutritionists and veterinarians has developed a range of recipes designed to support your dog’s health and vitality at every stage of their life.   

2. Delicate Care

The Delicate Care range is scientifically formulated to bring out their best, no matter what your dog’s life stage, allergies or condition. They have a range specifically formulated for Dental Care, Skin or Stomach, Mobility Support, and Weight Management. These formulations provide complete and balanced nutrition for dogs while at the same time promoting well-being for different concerns regarding your dog.  

3. Hill’s

Hill’s is focused on combining nutrient-rich ingredients with smart science to develop the tastes, aromas, and textures your dog loves.  Hills offers a wide range of products focused on different life stages and health concerns your dog may experience. Hills combine exceptional health benefits with excellent value and offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee that your pet will love the taste.  

4. Royal Canin

Royal Canin focuses their efforts on understanding the unique needs of domestic cats and dogs. Everything Royal Canin does is designed to create precise nutritional formulas to help dogs and cats have a long and healthy life. Royal Canin’s products are researched and developed not by trends in human nutrition or preferences of the pet owner, but through innovative nutritional science and observation.  

Royal Canin have studied the unique health needs of cats and dogs since 1968. Over that time, we have learned that the smallest nutritional difference can make a huge change to your pet’s life and health. 

The individual health of every cat and dog is unique which is why there are not only many different brands but different types of food for your pets’ individual requirements.
