Available in ADULT, PUPPY and SENIOR it is approved for export to the EU Selling at the recommended South African retail price!


I have recently had to change my dog food to Savanna from another brand. The difference in 6 weeks on this food has been marked. Not only are their coats better, their food consumption has made this a more economical purchase. It has been great to see the dogs’ health and demeanor improve as a result of this.
Puppies being fed on Savanna appear to have a better growth rate, much improved coats and are often in much better condition than their litter mates being fed other foods.
It is more cost effective to feed Savanna which is a whole food than a typical supermarket brand dog food or even a home cooked diet. The dogs eat less and get more nutrition from Savannah.

Spay Campaign

Dr Vin Ramlaul and Elliot recently participated in the AWARE TRUST   spay campaign in the Lowveld. 38degrees in the shade a thermometer left out in the sun topped out at 50 degrees - it was hot! But once again very well received by the local population. 50 spays, 90 odd castrations and 150 innoculations were carried out over the 6 day campaign. Well done to all concerned.
