Why Choose Smack Pet Food?

We add no artificial vitamins or synthetics - all the nutrition comes from the food itself!

Our recipes are handcrafted with the best quality ingredients and organic produce.

With no unnecessary carbohydrates or extra ingredients, it's the perfect training treat or companion to a raw diet.

Smack Pet Food has never had a recall (and has never tested positive for a pathogen).

Optimal nutrition from the start

Puppyhood is one of the most important times for your dog to get optimal nutrition - it's when we lay the foundation of health for the rest of their lives.

Our handcrafted, raw dehydrated foods are ideal for giving your puppy the best start in life. We use only the very best quality of ingredients, without anything your puppy doesn't need. At the puppy stage, rotating in 20% of one of our fish formulas or supplementing with a fish oil is recommended to get all the extra benefits of omegas. 

With all the benefits of raw with scoop and serve convenience, Smack is a perfect companion to any diet and can be used in treat balls, snuffle mats or for training, without adding any unnecessary carbohydrates or ingredients.

The Smack Process

Family-owned and operated in Canada, our raw, dehydrated food is handcrafted with fresh whole meats and organic, high-quality produce. 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.

Our technology of low temperature dehydration preserves the nutrients in our food through minimal processing, aiding digestion. Unlike raw frozen or fresh, there is no need to worry about bacteria or pathogens as our testing has proven our manufacturing process combined with our very low moisture content inhibits the growth. Smack has never tested positive for any pathogen!

Smack is very nutrient-dense so keep an eye on how much you feed - free feeding is not recommended.

Why is organic non-GMO produce important?

Organic foods often have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, than their conventionally-grown counterparts and people with allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives may find their symptoms lessen or go away when they eat only organic foods. In essence, organic produce contains fewer pesticides.

What is ethoxyquin? And why should I care about synthetic vitamins and minerals?

Ethoxyquin (E324) is a synthetic antioxidant that is used primarily in animal feed. Globally, ethoxyquin is not approved for use as a direct food additive in foods for human consumption. Specific to the omega-3 industry, some krill meals and crude fish and fish oils for animal feed are preserved using ethoxyquin.

Naturally occurring vitamins and synthetic vitamins are different … really different.They’re not in the same chemical form … so your dog’s body will have trouble recognizing and using the fake, synthetic vitamins. These synthetic vitamins and minerals, even at the best quality, regularly have partially hydrolyzed protein carriers of unknown sources and are almost exclusively available from overseas sources. This means they can be contaminated with toxins, or at the very least, be a source of allergens to some pets.

Why is carbohydrate content and source important?

Dogs and cats have no biological requirement for simple carbohydrates. Some of these also contain a good portion of the food's protein levels, which are simply not easy to digest or particularly bioavailable. Basically a lot comes out the back end…in the form of excrement. So it may look like a high protein food, but much of it comes from peas or potatoes, not appropriate sources for dogs and cats. Some are more concerning than others, like peas, lentils and those in the legume family. They contain lectins (plant proteins) and phytoestrogens.They can damage your dogs gut, leading to leaky gut symptoms and they provide a continuous source of plant based estrogens which interfere with a normal endocrine system.

Why should I care if there is gluten in the food?

Dogs are usually sensitive to gluten, not grains themselves. Not only is it one of the top 5 allergens for pets, but it’s also inflammatory and can affect a dog's healthy gut biome.

Why is the amount fed important?

Calorie density is important. It’s very hard for your pet to digest and work on massive amounts of food consumed in any given meal. As illustrated above, when we’re feeding 3+ cups of food (vs ¾ cup) this indicates a large portion of low calorie fillers, which will be partially fermented in the gut and come out the other end. Simply put, excessive food tends to equal excessive excrement. It also indicates that a lot of the food’s ingredients are those hard-to-digest carbohydrates.
