Our Frequently Barked Questions

What goes into a Doggy Bag?

Doggy Bag only uses food fit for human consumption, and easily-identifiable fresh ingredients like beef, pumpkin, peas and sunflower seeds--never unidentifiable animal digests or meat by-products. We use no salt, no additives and only one preservative: a refrigerator. If we can’t spell it, we won’t sell it!

Is Doggy Bag raw food?

Our recipes are all home-cooked, with select raw elements including carrots, peas and spinach. Other ingredients, such as sweet potatoes and organ meat, are baked instead. Our meats are cooked following scientific methods to lock in their maximum nutrition, and their juices are used to flavor our brown rice. Our special blend of herbs and spices adds that final healthy, tasty touch. Absolutely nothing is wasted!

Can my puppy eat Doggy Bag?

Doggy Bag is formulated and balanced for adult dogs only, so give us a call once your puppy is 6 months or older.

My dog has health issues, can they start with Doggy Bag?

We currently cook for many other dogs who suffer from various health issues like diabetes, DCM and kidney problems, and whose owners have consulted their vets about the change. We encourage all our customers to stay in touch with us; this helps us track their progress on our food, and enables us to tweak our recipes for you!

How long until I see an improvement or change in my dogs’ overall condition?

While some dogs show improvement within a week, others may take up to 2-3 months. To see the maximum benefits of fresh food, put your dog on Doggy Bag for a minimum of 3 months.

How do I get my Doggy Bag meals?

Place your orders with us online via our order form, over the phone at 010 268 6254, or get in touch via our Facebook page. We hope to get into your friendly neighbourhood pet store soon.

Will fresh food give my dog the runs?

Most of our customers face no problems switching to Doggy Bag. However, if your dog has been fed only dry kibble before, the transition may lead to some internal spring cleaning.
