Get your dog on to Scratch smoothly with our 7-day transition guide
One is not better than the other, they are just different. It all comes down to what your dog needs and prefers.
If your dog has any known allergies to common proteins, then Kangaroo is the right place to start.
If your pup is going to grow up to be larger than 32kg, then they should get the Turkey, Lamb & Beef recipe while they are growing.
For all other dogs, it really comes down to taste .
How much does a box of the the Turkey, Lamb & Beef recipe cost?
It costs $69 for a 7.5kg box. But you can also get $10 off when you order two boxes at the same time, just like with our roo recipe.
Is the Turkey, Lamb & Beef recipe suitable for puppies?
Yes, this recipe is suitable for every breed of puppy, including large breed puppies.
Is the Turkey, Lamb & Beef recipe suitable for senior dogs?
Yes, this recipe is suitable for every breed of senior dog. If your older dog has any specific health concerns, just jump on live chat to check if it’s suitable for their needs.
Is the Turkey, Lamb & Beef recipe suitable for all breeds?
Absolutely. Any dog, regardless of age, breed, or activity level, can enjoy this recipe.
Where do you source your meat from for this Turkey, Lamb & Beef recipe?
We source the turkey from Inghams, with the lamb and beef also being 100% Australian and free of added hormones.
We have also started work on sourcing free range and RSPCA approved turkey. As we grow, we’re working on bringing more ethical production to the pet food industry improving the supply chain for everyone
Aside from the meat, are the ingredients the same?
Yes. Our two recipes have the same ingredients – except the animal protein. One uses kangaroo and the other uses three proteins: turkey, lamb, and beef. The same whole vegetables, vitamins, and oils are used, but the quantities are slightly different.
How big is each piece of kibble?
The kibble is approximately 14mm in diameter, which is quite a bit bigger than our Kangaroo recipe which measures at about 11mm in diameter.
Can I order smaller Turkey, Lamb & Beef kibble or larger Kangaroo kibble?
Not right now. At this stage, we can only provide 11mm Kangaroo kibble or the larger 14mm Turkey, Lamb & Beef kibble.
Why have you used a 3-meat recipe?
Variety is the spice of life. We worked with our nutritionist to make the best food for large breed puppies – and everyone else too. For dogs that aren’t super sensitive, having different sources of proteins makes sure there are a large range of nutrients and flavours to keep them healthy and interested.
If your Kangaroo recipe is so great, why a second option?
This 3-meat recipe initially came about after a shortage of kangaroo. This shortage meant that to get good quality kangaroo meat was going to cost more, which would in turn cost more to our Scratch customers. For some people – especially those with large dogs – the increase would mean they’d have to look elsewhere. So we got our heads together and asked: if it’s not kangaroo, what could be another great recipe?
The result was Turkey, Lamb & Beef: three proteins that are great for large breed pups without hitting the purse strings too much. It’s also good for pooches who don’t have too many intolerances or aren’t sensitive to particular meats.
My dog is allergic to chicken, would it also be allergic to turkey?
If your dog has a diagnosed allergy to chicken, then it is best to go with the kangaroo recipe instead. The turkey is processed on the same production line as chicken, so there is a small chance that some will make it into the finished product. Better be safe.
Is it better to have 28% or 30% protein?
Both are actually very high compared to most food on the market, especially for ones that don’t add protein concentrate from peas. We consider that 28%-32% is a sweet spot that provides all the protein your dog needs to thrive, without putting too much pressure on their digestive system and organs.
Is it better for my dog to have a single protein diet or a multiple protein diet?
Single protein food is the way to go if your dog has not been doing well on other foods out there. While it may have been the protein or a grain that your dog was allergic to, our Single Protein Kangaroo recipe is your best bet to quickly find a food that your dog will like. It’s also the right choice if they just love roo!
Will the Turkey, Lamb & Beef kibble be too big for my small dog?
The best thing to do is to request a sample to try. The pieces in our Turkey, Lamb & Beef kibble are bigger in diameter, but are still quite thin. Bigger kibble can slow down fast eaters, as well as improving dental health. Best to check first before you dive into a box.
Will the new recipe improve my dog’s dental health?
Kibble size can have an impact on dental health. Larger kibble makes dogs chew more, rather than just swallow, so it can help keep teeth cleaner. You probably also should give your dog natural dental treats or raw bones to chew on too.
My dog has allergies, but I don’t know what from. Which food should I try?
Start with the Kangaroo Single Protein. If that doesn’t help, then it is probably time to do a formal allergy testing or follow a strict elimination diet to identify what’s causing the allergy
