Reviewer Photos & Videos
I recently changed from The Hills Science diet as I read bad reviews of the grain fillers in it, swapped to the grain free chicken and coconut oil biscuits and my 4 year old Bulldog seems very happy with the swap. He has allergies so we're hoping this will help and he seems to love the taste as well.

I buy ivory coat in many flavours grain free of course. Its a hood product. Chicken free meat free some are which is good because both of my dogs are allergic to chicken. Ivory coat very good ingredients. I suggest u try grain free . Your dogs will be happy u chose this product for them
September 6th 2018 Update: reduced fat turkey ivory coat for dogs
I strongly recomend reduced fat turkey biscuts dry dog food for older or over weight dogs. I have only just started using reduced fat as my dogs are over weight and thats not good or healthy for them so far my dogs seem to like the taste and ive read other reviewS were other peoples dogs have been loosing the weight from this product.
Perfect. At last!
Since my dog has been on Ivory Coat Grain Free biscuits (3months) her allergies of 4 years have cleared up considerably. She had many vet visits resulting in $100's of dollars and many different meds none of which worked. She suffered from hair loss, severe inflammation of tummy and groin area, constant itching, and ear eye and mouth infections which we thought were seasonal allergies.
I have researched and tried many dry dog foods and none until now made any difference.
I cannot praise this product enough and hope you never change the formular and quality.
So far so good
With quite a few fur babies I look for quality dry food.. I was recommended Ivory Coat as I had been using Royal Canin and my babies were not happy with this brand. I am slowly mixing Ivory Coat in with their current food and so far they all seem to love it. I have noticed a very positive change in their litter tray smells too - for the better!
My picky eater loves it
My furboy is such a picky eater and turns his nose up at ALL pet food. He particularly has a strong aversion to dry food and only eats it as a last resort when he is super desperate - survival food. Over the years, I have tried different brands without any success. A few days ago, I picked up a few sample packets while we was at the groomers and introduced it to him at dinner. He loved chicken and coconut oil, so we are now trying out the different flavours. I've noticed that he is fuller for longer, doesn't go begging for more food - but ...always has a separate stomach for treats - and overnight, his stool is firm, which it normally isn't. My boy is on a partial raw food diet with some dry food introduced to the mix. Normally, he will just spit out the dry food but he has been gobbling up his meals these past few days with Ivory Coat in the mix. I am super happy we've found something nutritious that he loves.
Ivory Coat - Chicken and Coconut oil
Great product. My 1.5 year old pug x brussels griffon is a highly fussy eater.
After trying a few of the different premium grain free dry dog food brands, and having issues with him eating his daily recommended amount with all of them, it was a relief to find something he loves.
He now finishes his daily serve without any issues, and most of the time is hunting for more.
Amazing results and the dogs love it!
As a breeder after many years using another premium brand I had noticed subtle changes in the dogs coats becoming dull, energy levels dropped and their stools not so good with the final straw being turning their noses up at it. So I figured it was time for a change and wanted to find a good quality grain free product. Another breeder suggested Ivory Coat as a more holistic approach that would compliment the raw food diet we were giving our dogs. So I got some sample packs sent (generous qtys) and the dogs wolfed it down - big tick. I decided to...give it a try and within 3 weeks the difference was remarkable - healthy happy dogs with shiny coats and nice stools. The dogs love the flavours and I love the company, wonderful to deal with as a breeder and very helpful to anyone I direct to them. Havent looked back and many people compliment on how great our dogs look.
Our two staffies love this product and we have change their whole diet to natural products. I like that i can easily pick protein and fat content levels according to our pets needs. We had them on science diet then our vet changed us to royal canin (with additional probiotics etc) trying to settle one of our dogs stomach issue. With nothing helping i decided to go natural and have had no more stomach problems.
My miniature dachshund was sooo fussy and refused to eat any and all dry food, until I found Ivory Coat. He loves it & the proof is in his shiny coat and his poos are healthy - small, scheduled, and non offensive! I give him 1/4 cup for breakfast and 1 frozen chicken neck at night - this diet seems to be perfect for him.
Australian Owned Product
Love this Australian owned and made product. (Most people don't know that even though products purport to be Australian they are actually owned by overseas companies.) My two cattle/kelpies love it too and transitioned without any problems. I like the fact it has no cereal fillers and contains all Australian ingredients; well, at least that's what their advertising says, so I hope it's all true. Mind you, it's no cheaper than the imported products so it wouldn't appeal to a lot of people on the basis of price alone. Good resealable packaging.
Delicious food... according to my dog
My dog trainer recommended this brand and it took a while for my fussy pooch to transition over to it but now he loves it. Previously I had him eating dog roll from the supermarket until I realised how much salt it contained (and some other bad stuff). This food is really high quality, definitely give it a go.
Australian made premium dry food
Wow, My 9month old Japanese Spitz absolutely devours this brand. No need to transitioning adding, although I did have a little remaining of the other brands. This brand has won the dogs taste-buds and I am very please to be supporting an Australian made brand. Price wise, similar to top premium brands. I usually feed half dry and the rest apple, cucumber, raw meat, lettuce, sweet potato, carrot, etc. Grain free, and no artificial preservative, colours or flavours.

Thank you for getting back to me.
Recently bought some Ivory Coat dog food. I have not fed my dog any of it yet. Then I read all these horror stories about the new recipe. Should I bin it and go to another product? Kevin.
I binned everything I had on hand, I figured it would be too hard to get a refund from the retailer as it was an online order. The last time we feed our Moodle the Ivory Coat her eyelids went red within 30 minutes. There must be some nasty chemicals in it these latest batches. I moved to Royal Canin Dry food and 4Legs wet food now. Dog is very happy and empty bowl each time. I presume every dog is different and you may have a different batch of product than I did.
We would like to assure you that our Ivory Coat products are made in line with the safety and quality requirements found within the Australian Standards. They are also carefully formulated to ensure they provide pets with a compete and balanced diet.

Hi Kevin, go with what your gut says. You can always try it for a week and see whether your dog likes it and how their poo is. Many retailers offer a full refund if you've used less than 50 per cent of the bag. Personally I don't think it's a premium product even though it has a (relatively) premium price tag. There are heaps of alternatives out there. Maybe your vet has advice? Also keep in mind that dog food is largely unregulated in Australia so be wary when companies say it's in line with Aus standards - this means nothing!
Hi our 17 month cavoodle is on the ivory coat chicken grain free puppy food. When would you shift to adult food? He weights 6.7kg and is moderately active. Hadn’t been changing weight so probably fully grown now. Thanks.
Hi Joy, Small to Medium breed puppies can be swapped to an adult formulated food at approximately 12 months of age.
We hope this helps!
