Zoic Pet Food Frequently Asked Questions:
What does ‘Formulated for Rotational Feeding’ mean?
Answer: To eliminate the potential for creating a food based protein allergy, it is highly recommended you rotate your pet’s food. Zoic products were created with a base formulation and the addition of critical proteins. This base formulation allows you to switch your pet’s food from one protein to another without transitioning, and your pet should have little or no challenges with the diet change. Our unique natural probiotics also support digestive health.
What will happen if I do not want to rotate my dog’s diet?
Answer: Probably nothing. Many pets have eaten the same diets for 10 years or more without developing a sensitivity to the protein. But, more variety in your pet’s diet more closely represents how they would eat naturally.
Where can I find samples?
Answer: Samples are available at any local independent pet retailer stocking our product. Our store locator can be found at www.zoicpet.com under the WHERE TO BUY tab.
We also offer a 100% money back guarantee. So, if you purchase any size bag of our products and it doesn't work for you or your pet for any reason, you can return it to the store where you purchased it for a 100% refund.
If you are unable to find samples through one of these methods, then simply email your mailing information including name, phone number, address and the samples you would like to try to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can send you samples.

Is your meat, poultry and fish free-range, wild caught, grass-fed, GMO-free, hormone & antibiotic free, etc.?
Answer: Our meat, poultry and fish abides by all USDA guidelines established for meat, poultry and fish and is hormone and antibiotic free.
We make every effort to source GMO-free ingredients and we do not source GMO fruits and vegetables. However, we cannot always guarantee that the feed consumed by the animal during their life was GMO free. As such, we also cannot guarantee that the animal’s parents ate a GMO free diet.
Can I use your diets to treat my dog’s health issue?
Answer: We always recommend consulting with your vet when trying to treat a specific health issue. Though we have several people using our diets to help alleviate a specific health condition, we formulate all our diets for healthy pets and per FDA & government regulations we cannot claim that our diets treat or alleviate specific medical or health conditions.
Why are Zoic diets ideal for pets with food sensitivities and allergies?
Answer: Our diets are great for pets with sensitivities because they are free of the most common canine allergies: Corn, Wheat, Soy, & Dairy.

How do I transition my dog from his or her current food to Zoic?
Answer: To transition, gradually mix in Zoic over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Zoic each day so that you are feeding only Zoic by day 7. When transitioning to a new food, it is important to pay attention to your pet’s stool. A healthy diet and good digestion will result in a stool that is formed but soft – not liquid or rock hard.
Answer: Unfortunately, due to an overwhelming amount of requests for donations we have implemented a policy of not donating to specific organizations as to be fair to everyone who asks for our support. We wish we could help by a small donation but we are still a small company and we just don't yet have the resources to donate monetarily to each of the hundreds of groups who ask for our help. We apologize and hope we can help in the future should our policy change.
