For those of you who are joining us for the first time - welcome. And to returning friends - welcome back! Well, it’s been a busy month with Great Dog Morning Teas in support of Save Kiwi Month, Pet Expos and all manner of animal antics. It is great to get up close and meet and greet the people and animals that we create products for and connect with the wider community.
On the Save Kiwi Month, it's not just an initiative that lasts a month, this should be something that is front of mind all year round. Our kiwi is the icon of New Zealand and unfortunately is incredibly susceptible to predator attacks, so with Christmas approaching and travel on our minds be sure to check out where kiwis are prevalent and ensure you keep your dog under control in these areas when traveling.
On the Great Dog Morning Tea, hilarious fun with dogs of all shapes and sizes turning up at the Waiatarua Reserve for a little bit of Jimbo's for morning tea. In particular, Harly the British Bulldog who starred in the Jimbo's TV commercial rocked on over and managed to snaffle away his fair share of morning tea - good to see you again Harly. Thanks to all of you who turned up, it was great to meet you all and thanks for bringing your owners along.
With Christmas just around the corner we have a couple of seasonal products coming up to treat your pets this Christmas, read on for more info. I know the pets in my house will all be having a little something special under the Christmas tree, how about yours?

We've had some great events in the last couple of weeks. On the 21st of October we held The Great Dog Morning Tea in partnership with Kiwis for kiwi. We met lots of dogs and their owners, and loved hanging out with you all. Congratulations to Jenny from Auckland; her schnauzer Perspex was our winner of a whole YEAR'S worth of Jimbo's Pet Food after attending The Great Dog Morning Tea!
Over the weekend we were also in Wellington at the Pet & Animal Expo. We got to catch up with some long-time Jimbo's fans, and met lots of new faces. We hope your fur families all enjoyed the Jimbo's goodies you left with!
Congratulations to Andrew Gaskin, who won our Expo competition for three months of free Jimbo's Pet Food!
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a question about our products, or want some feeding advice? Send us your questions for our Pet Advisor to answer.
"My pet has beef allergies, what can I feed?"
Beef is a great staple protein to include in a carnivore's diet, but it is such a common ingredient in commercial pet foods that some animals develop sensitivities to it. Jimbo's has some wonderful beef-free options:
Our Chicken Mince is a frozen, 100% preservative-free product that is great for both cats and dogs. It contains chicken meat and ground-up bone for added calcium, glucosamine and chondroitin.
Chicken Medallions are similar to our Chicken Mince, but have added Biophive Skin & Coat formula (a natural supplement made of green-lipped mussel and deer products). These frozen Medallions are free-flowing in a 1kg bag.
Jimbo's Hypoallergenic Lamb is a fresh product that contains no beef meat or offal. It is also free of chicken, so a great option for dogs with beef or chicken allergies.
If your pet has not developed beef sensitivities, we would recommend including this protein in a varied diet.
We love seeing pictures of your pets! Send in your fur family photos to our online Gallery and share their stories with us and the rest of the world. Every entry goes in the monthly draw to WIN $30 of Jimbo's vouchers!
