I AM NOT A CAT NUTRITIONIST. This review is solely my opinion about the food as a cat owner.
ZiwiPeak is a pet food company based in New Zealand.
My cats have eaten ZiwiPeak on and off their entire lives, but recently, I have had them on it more consistently for the past year. I would prefer for them to be eating it more often than they do - but it's a compromise. They're not crazy about it - so I only offer it every other day or so. I like the ingredients and the company, so that's why I keep trying. I also usually have to sprinkle Whole Life Pet treats' freeze-dried chicken powder on top of it to entice them to start eating it (I explain this in the final review video) - but once they start eating it, then they will continue.
So when Chewy.com offered a case of ZiwiPeak canned cat food as one of their July review perks, I went ahead and jumped on the opportunity to be able to feature it and help out on our cat food budget.
ZiwiPeak is expensive (as far as cat food goes) and since my cats don't super like it, I always order it in the small cans - even though the smaller cans are more expensive per ounce vs. the larger cans - in the long run, we save money with the smaller cans because my cats don't like cold cat food.
I like that ZiwiPeak is sourced from New Zealand because New Zealand doesn't use the antibiotics, etc. on their animals like we do on our livestock, etc. in the USA. Therefore, I feel like it is safer.
Their rabbit is wild caught, whereas their lamb free-range and grass-fed on ethical and sustainable New Zealand farms.
As far as I know, and definitely in their Ziwi Peak Rabbit & Lamb Recipe Canned Cat Food - it includes 3% New Zealand Green Mussels, which are a natural source of chondroitin and glucosamine and supports joint health.
Something else I like about ZiwiPeak and as I indicate in our final review video below, it does not include grains, rice, corn, soy, potatoes, wheat, fillers, sugars, glycerins, rendered meals, preservatives, TSPP, BPA, guar gum, agar agar or carrageenan.
