and serve. Check the feed guide at the bottom of the pack for quantities.

 You can add a bit of water depending on your dog's preference but many like it just mixed with meat.

This depends on the weight of your dog, but as a rough guide, for a 500g pack:

  • About 6 and a bit days' meals for an average 10 kg dog
  • About 5 days' meals for an average 15kg dog
  • About 4 days' meals for an average 20 kg dog

Yes you can. These packs can go straight into the recycling bin at home as can our mailing satchels and boxes.

Makes my dog happy 🥰

Planet A looks like human food! You can just tell it's gonna be healthy for your doggo. It's so easy to prepare, and had my dogs returning to their bowls well after it was gone, hoping they'd find more! I love that we can give our doggos healthy meat free meals!

That's great to hear! Thanks for trying's hoping you can continue to give your dogs a flexitarian diet.

My Dog Loves the Protein Base Mix

My Belgian Shepherd absolutely LOVES his Protein Base Mix and licks the bowl clean. I add some raw meat in with the mix and a little bit of water and he simply can not get enough of it. The only side-effect I noticed was that his farts were rather pungent....! but apart from that, we both are very happy with the results.

That is so good to hear! (Well, except for the fart bit...just wondering...did he get the quantity recommended? It is energy dense...) But thrilled he loved it. Thanks for trying something new!
