Adult Australian Shepherds: 35-65 lb (16 - 29.5 kg)
Obesity, allergies, and food intolerances are common dietary issues facing Australian shepherds. A high-quality food is vital to keep them at a healthy weight and comfortable. Kabo fresh recipes use human-grade meat protein sources as the 1st ingredient. Quality, digestible proteins along with custom portioning will help keep your Australian shepherd at their ideal weight- a must for avoiding joint stress and other health complications.
Parents of Australian shepherds that are allergic to common animal proteins, or looking for a low fat solution, will appreciate the Luscious Lamb recipe. For dogs that are on a grain-free diet, our Savoury Beef variety is an excellent option.
Australian shepherds require carbohydrates to keep up their high energy levels, and fiber for digestive health. Kabo uses only natural whole sources of carbohydrates such as russet potato, sweet potato, chickpeas, squash and rice- depending on the recipe and formula. We don’t use any fillers, corn or wheat for carbohydrates like many dry dog foods.
With no official guidance from AAFCO on carbohydrates, pet parents can rest assured- we’ve formulated our menus using our in-house animal nutritionists. Kabo only uses nutrient dense produce, all of which serves a different function. Canadian fruits and vegetables including red apples, green beans, carrots, spinach, kale, and broccoli are used in our recipes for fiber and essential vitamins, and minerals such as potassium, vitamins A, C & K, folic acid, iron, and more.
An Australian shepherd's digestive tract can be notoriously sensitive and prone to inflammation. Our chicken and rice recipe choice is gentle on their stomachs when they're upset. Also, you may notice that after a couple of weeks of feeding Kabo, their loose stool is tighter, more uniform, and they’ll be less gassy too!
Fats are an essential part of your pup's balanced diet, as it is for humans. But it’s important to give them just the right amount, and the right types. Australian shepherds sometimes experience skin issues including dryness and itchiness. Including Omega fatty acids in their diet supports healthy skin, a beautiful coat, immune function, cardiovascular health, joint health and more.
Our food contains essential fats from lean proteins, and is supplemented with fish oil and sunflower oil to provide both Omega-3 fatty acids and Omega-6 fatty acids. No pricey add-on supplements required!
We just started Kabo for our new 2 month old puppy and 16 year old senior dog. They LOVED it! The customer service and Vets have been amazing to deal with and always so quick to respond! Highly recommend this company!

Kabo is my dogs favourite meal! They are not veggie eaters but gobble up the Kabo food without even noticing the hidden vegetables! They are healthier, have more energy & are excited every meal time! I feel better knowing that I’m feeding my babies REAL food…not sawdust or sand! Thank you for creating a product that pet parents can trust!
