Pet Deli


Tasty Meals for Healthy Pets

At Pet Deli®, we offer a range of delicious, preservative free, raw-meat pet foods for your pet to eat as nature intended. Made from quality, human grade meats and sourced from New Zealand farms, our tasty pet foods contain all the nutrients your furry friend needs to lead a long, healthy and active life.

We’ve been feeding thousands of dogs and cats for over ten years. Our research into what they love started in the forests of New Zealand twenty years ago. We worked with dogs that were born and raised in the forest, living on what was hunted for them.

The difference in their health, happiness and well-being from city dogs inspired us. After seeing how much better the dogs lived on a natural diet, we researched international predator-prey relationships.

This is what we found out. Dogs and cats love eating raw meat. They also love how good it is for them.

Feed your pet as nature intended. 
They’ll love you even more for it.

Plus the entire Pet Deli® range is 100% NATURAL,
PRESERVATIVE AND GRAIN FREE


Dogs and cats are natural-born CARNIVORES.

A RAW MEAT diet is all they are designed to eat.

The Raw
     Feeding Myth List

Dogs are omnivores:

This is false. Dogs are carnivores, not omnivores. Dogs are very adaptable though, but just because they can survive on an omnivorous diet does not mean it is the best diet for them. The truth about dogs being natural carnivores is clearly visible by the evidence available to us.


Dogs have adapted to cooked, processed diets:

This is false. The evidence is the millions of pets sitting in the waiting rooms of veterinary clinics with periodontal disease, skin diseases, cancers, organ diseases, diabetes, obesity – diseases that have strong connections to cooked and processed foods.


Raw feeding doesn’t provide nutritional balance:

True. You cannot feed a diet of just meat to your dog and expect it to do well. Your dog needs bones, green tripe and organ meat as well to obtain the proper nutrients. This means feeding a prey-model diet based on a whole prey animal. If you are feeding a variety of raw meaty bones and organ meats, then their diet will be balanced. Raw foods contain the exact proportions of fat, protein, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes a dog needs.


Eating bones is dangerous:

Dogs and cats have carnivorous jaws and are designed to chew, crush and digest raw meaty bones.

Cooked bones can be dangerous though, as they are brittle and can splinter. Pet Deli® recommends you never feed cooked bones to your dog or cat. Many dogs get constipated from cooked bones, or have a splinter of brittle cooked bone perforate the stomach or gut.

There is a wide range of bones available and we suggest you choose raw bones with lots of meat attached appropriate for the size of your dog. This will avoid them gulping them in one piece.


Bacteria in raw meat is dangerous to my pet:

Dogs are surprisingly well equipped to deal with bacteria. Their saliva has antibacterial properties; it contains lysozyme, an enzyme that lyses and destroys harmful bacteria. Their short digestive tract is designed to push through food and bacteria quickly without giving bacteria time to colonise.

It could be argued that it is kibble, not the raw meat, which causes bacterial problems. Kibble in the intestine not only irritates the lining of the bowels but also provides the perfect warm, wet environment with plenty of undigested sugars and starches as food for bacteria. This is why thousands of processed food-fed animals suffer from a condition called Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, or SIBO (Lonsdale, T. 2001. Raw Meaty Bones. Pg 85). Raw meaty bones, however, create a very inhospitable environment for bacteria, as RMBs are easily digestible and have no carbohydrates, starches, or sugars to feed the bacteria.


Raw diets are not very digestable:

There is an easy answer to counter this: dogs fed a raw meaty bone diet produce poo that are one-third the size of the voluminous poo of kibble-fed dogs. That equates to a two-thirds size reduction in faecal output.

This indicates a higher digestibility; vets and dog owners know this very well. Smaller poo equals better digestibility. Raw diets are 90-97% digestible (includes the bone), whereas most dry foods are 40-70% digestible (some of the better, holistic dry foods are higher than this figure). This explains why most kibble-fed dogs have such huge poops: most of it is undigested grain and filler, also known as “fibre”. Even premium dog dry food, while more digestible than many other dry foods, yield waste that are rather large compared to a raw-fed animal’s poo.


Raw diets are inconvenient and expensive:

A raw diet is as convenient as you make it, but it will always be more work than pouring pre-formed pellets into a bowl. But at Pet Deli®, we think your pet’s health should be much more important than convenience. Your pet will love you more for the effort!

To help, Pet Deli® has weighed patties in convenient 70 gram portions so you can easily defrost and feed your pet what they need. Dogs can also eat the patties and bones frozen if you forget to defrost them (as we sometimes do for our pets). It actually slows their eating down and the extra chewing is good for them.

If you feed the right portions, Pet Deli® also compares well cost wise with dry foods. We have developed a premium product, but want to make it as accessible as we can for you and your pet.


Vets are qualified to give nutritional advice:

This is a difficult issue that is guaranteed to offend some people, particularly those in the profession. Nevertheless, the reality must be discussed. Should people fully trust the nutritional advice dispensed by their vets?

Veterinarians receive little nutritional training. The training they do receive is often advocated by or even administered by the pet food companies. Plus their nutritional training comes from the incorrect view that dogs are omnivores and can safely be maintained on a grain-based diet, even when scientific research has proven that canines and felines have no evolved need for carbohydrates.

As in any industry, there are exceptions to this rule. Pet Deli® has worked closely with a number of New Zealand vets to develop our product.


There is no scientific research to back raw diets:

Nature has been researching raw diets for over a million years. It works. The team at Pet Deli® have also closely studied predator-prey research and seen the benefits carnivores have eating raw products. We have also witnessed first hand the incredible changes many sick dogs and cats have experienced when they have converted to a raw diet. It’s often been a last resort because a vet has run out of options, and we can happily say we’ve saved the lives of many pets.
