Koha is a premium pet food provider based in New Zealand. Koha is without a doubt one of the most expensive commercial pet food brands with cans of dog food selling for as high as $6 a can.
The reason for these sky high prices is the quality and type of ingredients used in their recipes which we will discuss later.
Koha focuses almost exclusively on wet and canned food which is highly unusual as the vast majority of dog food sold and consumed is dry dog food, also known as kibble.
Koha Product Range
Koha has a very large and varied range of canned and wet dog food. This includes recipes that are designated as Limited Ingredient recipes.
Koha does not produce traditional dry dog food also known as kibble.
Koha’s cat food product range is almost as large as its dog food range and includes a variety of wet and canned prodcuts.
Once again, Koha does not produce traditional dry cat food which is also known as kibble.
Koha dog food provides excellent nutrition that is high in protein and fat and low in carbohydrates. This excellent nutrition is compounded by the fact that wet or canned dog food tends to contain superior nutrition than dry dog food.
Koha’s cat food also provides excellent nutrition with very low proportions of carbohydrates and high proportions of protein and fat. This is in line with a cats natural diet.
High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients
- Guinea Fowl
Koha uses a very large range of meat and fish ingredients. This includes all of the major staples of the dog food world such as Chicken, Turkey, Beef, and Salmon.
However, Koha also uses quite a few of the less common meat ingredients such as Rabbit, Venison, Kangaroo, and Guinea Fowl. These meat ingredients are often described as Novel Meats and are used in recipes for dogs with severe dietary sensitivities and allergies. Learn more about the use of these ingredients in the following articles.
Koha makes limited use of organ meat in their recipes including the use of Liver. Organ meat, such as Liver, can provide vitamins and minerals in high levels that traditional meat cuts cannot.
Other Notable Ingredients
Koha uses small quantities of some legumes in their recipes including Green Beans and Lentils. Legumes are protein rich vegetables and are staple inclusions in almost all dog food. While there are some concerns about the use of legumes in dog food, the portions used in Koha’s recipes are not significant.
Koha also uses some less common vegetables in their recipes such as Carrots and Pumpkin. Both of these vegetables can be beneficial inclusions and can provide a mix of carbohydrates and dietary fiber. Learn more about the use of Pumpkin in dog food as well as some of the best pumpkin focused recipes in our article Best Dog Food With Pumpkin.
Flaxseed is regularly added to dog food to boost the levels of the Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Flaxseed is probably the best plant-based source of these fatty acids and the range of health benefits they can provide is the reasoning behind their regular inclusion.
Koha Animal Testing
At this time, we have no information on what type of testing Koha particpartes in and whether this is invasive or laboratory in nature.
We strongly believe that invasive and laboratory testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which we hope will see significant decline or elimination in the coming years.
We have no information that any Koha products have ever been recalled.
This is a positive trait and shows that Koha takes the safety and quality of its manafacturing process seriously. Nevertheless, consumers should be vigilent of any future recalls from Koha or any other brand.
