KetoNatural is a small online based dog food brand founded by Daniel Schulof. Daniel Schulof is the author of the book Dogs, Dog Food, and Dogma, which explores the links between pet-specific diseases and pet diet.
KetoNatural only sells its products online, and they are not available to purchase within any local or chain pet food stores.
KetoNatural offers subscription-style services to its customers. By taking advantage of this program, these customers receive a discount on their orders.
KetoNatural Product Range
KetoNatural has a very small range of dog food products. This range includes two unique dry dog food recipes and a single dog treat recipe.
All of KetoNatural’s recipes are grain-free, and they do not have any grain-inclusive recipes.
KetoNatural also does not produce any age-specific recipes such as those for puppies or senior dogs. However, their adult recipes are suitable for all life stages, which means many puppies and senior dogs would be able to eat the food without issues.
At this time, KetoNatural does not produce any cat food products.
The nutrition provided by KetoNatural is impressive and is significantly above-average when compared to most other dog food brands.
However, KetoNatural makes extensive use of plant-based protein, which makes a comparison to other brand’s recipes difficult.
High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients
Given KetoNatural’s small product range, they only use a small number of meat or fish ingredients. Chicken and Salmon are high-quality ingredients and excellent sources of protein and fat.
Despite this, both of these ingredients are popular choices in the industry. This is as they are relatively affordable and can be easily sourced.
Other Notable Ingredients
KetoNatural makes extensive use of the vegetable by-product, Pea Protein. Pea Protein is a refined product produced from Peas and is an extremely dense source of plant-based protein.
Some pet food manufacturers utilize Pea Protein to boost the overall proportion of protein in a recipe without purchasing additional meat or fish ingredients. This technique, along with the use of other by-products, can mislead consumers about the makeup of a recipe.
You can read more about this in the two articles below.
Along with Pea Protein, KetoNatural also makes use of Peas in their dry dog food recipes. Peas are a staple of the industry and are so commonly used because they are an affordable source of carbohydrates, fiber, and plant-based protein.
However, in recent years there have been links between the high use of legumes in pet food and an increased rate of Canine Heart Disease. If you’d like to read more about this concerning link, we recommend you read our discussion in the article Best Dog Foods Without Peas.
Chicken Fat is found in many dog food recipes from a variety of brands. It is included to boost the overall level of animal-based fat in a recipe as well as enhance the flavor of the recipe. Chicken Fat is chosen for this task over alternatives as it is relatively low cost and easy to source.

Flaxseed is also found regularly in pet food recipes. It is included as it is probably the best plant-based source of the Omega 3 Fatty Acids. These fatty acids are believed by many to provide several health benefits to dogs, including an improvement in the condition of a dog’s skin and coat.

KetoNatural Animal Testing
At this time, we have no information on whether KetoNatural participates in invasive or laboratory testing of animals.
We strongly believe that laboratory or invasive testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice. We hope that in the future, it will be eliminated.
We always ask that pet owners are vigilant of any future recalls of KetoNatural or any other pet food brand.
