Our Story

Founded in 2008, Smack Pet Food Inc. is a Canadian-based company that formulates and manufactures raw dehydrated food for dogs and cats.

Our passion for providing nutritious, convenient, and delicious dehydrated food for pets stems from a family love of animals. Expertise in biochemistry, food engineering, and holistic medicine combined with an innovative production approach allows us to create the highest quality dehydrated pet food in the world. We want the best for our pets to keep them happy, energetic, and full of life!

But the true inspiration for Smack was Zorro. Our noble dog and adored family member was unfortunately diagnosed with cancer. It came quickly and suddenly, and it was too late for our dear Zorro, but Smack was created in his honour to help all of the other Zorros out there, all the fun-loving members of our families who can benefit from a wholesome, nutritious raw food diet.

And so to honor Zorro’s legacy, our mission is now to provide superior pet food products that taste good and deliver benefits to maintain energy, vitality, digestion, and overall pet health. Our products offer maximized health and performance, improved taste and aroma, and reduced illness and shedding for pets – all while maintaining utmost food safety and storage efficiency for pet owners.

Just ask our very first taste-testers and best friends, Buran & Strelka – there’s nothing as lip-smackingly delicious and nutritious as Smack!

Founded in 2008, the inspiration for Smack Pet Food Inc. was Zorro, our founders’ beloved family dog. When Zorro was diagnosed with cancer, Michael used his interest in health, nutrition and cooking to help improve Zorro’s diet during his sickness. Although Zorro sadly succumbed to the disease, Michael realized that he had found his passion - creating wholesome, nutritious raw dog food to help all the other beloved family pets benefit from a healthier lifestyle. And so Smack Pet Food was created to honour Zorro’s legacy, and to help nourish other pets with a wholesome, nutritious raw food diet.

Today, Smack continues to formulate and manufacture raw dehydrated food for dogs and cats, driven by a passion for providing nutritious, convenient, and delicious dehydrated pet food.

We want the best for our pets – to keep them happy, energetic and full of life. Our products offer maximized health and performance, improved taste and aroma, and reduced illness and shedding for pets – all while maintaining utmost food safety and storage efficiency for pet owners.

Not to mention - it’s lip-smackingly delicious!

Our Crunchy Style recipes are carefully made into bite-size squares that can be scooped and served like a kibble (or used as a super healthy training treat!). Hydration is not necessary, but warm water may be added to the food to soften into an antioxidant-rich, raw, meaty stew!
