The Pet Bistro Story

Our Tail


Bex Hill is the founder of The Pet Bistro. The dog food idea was born from health concerns for Lilly the families first pet. As a puppy Lilly came home from the pet store with a free months’ worth of kibble ( dog biscuits)  it seemed like a bargain at the time, however Lily  often had diarrhoea and was constantly scratching herself and visits to the Vet  found no solution.   One day over a cup of tea  Bex started looking closely at the ingredient list on  the dog food Lilly was eating – it was a large commercial brand,  very expensive, readily available at Pet Stores and Vets across NZ,  and cleverly marketed on TV.  What she found in the ingredient list shocked her – meat meal, artificial colours, flavours, preservatives, synthetic vitamins and the list goes on.

Bex's Action Plan

Natural Food

Bex started thinking this is not what dogs would naturally eat in the wild and realized that our best friends  – our dogs were not designed to be eating a hard brown ball called kibble ( dog biscuits) that sit on a shelf for months in supermarkets, vet and pet stores and it was  this thought  that  compelled her to start making Lily a new  diet.

Our Mission

Pet Rescue

The Pet Bistro aims to Revolutionize the pet food industry,  Improve the life of our pets with the power of natural food and Challenge what has been accepted up to this point as best for our pets.

 Real dog food is the key to a long healthy life, so it is vital for owners to pay careful attention to their pets’ diet.

A dogs digestive system is suited to natural fresh meat and vegetables diet, not highly processed food like kibble ( dog biscuits) In fact simply adding fresh food to a dogs diet has helped dogs recover from serious illnesses, improved skin conditions, allergies and resulted in more balanced energy levels. 

New Zealand is witnessing a huge issue with pets suffering the same diseases as humans, diabetes, joint issues, skin issues and cancer.

What's In Your Pet's Food?

Would You Eat It?

Would you feed your family a meal made with condemned beef? Or spray the children’s tea with rancid fat collected from a deep-fat fryer?  Serve biscuits made with empty grain hulls swept from a factory floor? Or serve a dry bowl of cornflakes with no milk for every meal? The unpalatable truth is that if you give your dog processed dog food – dried, tinned or in a pouch – you may be feeding them substances that cause them serious, possibly fatal, harm long term. It’s important to know what’s in your pet food.
