  • Testimonial Nala Health - Georgi


    I have a GSP dog who is allergic to all dry dog foods (I have tried all the main brands and she gets a horrible rash on her stomach and a very sore gut) and up till now she has only tolerated ostrich or turkey wet food. I introduced the Nala very slowly over three weeks and its working! No rash and back to her high energy self.

  • Brumle

    Nala Health is the only thing that has worked perfectly for Brumle! We have tried a lot of different things, but since we started with Nala Health, his coat is fantastic and his itching is completely gone. Nala Health is one of the only types of food that doesn't contain anything he's allergic to without being ultra-processed and completely tasteless.

  • Wilma

    This food is the best. My 9 year old French bulldog no longer itches, she has no redness under the chin, no loose stools and no shedding!
    She has had all these problems for years. Now the old problems have disappeared.

  • Veterinarian chooses insect protein

    Noor, Zonar and Pan

    As a veterinarian and dog owner, I prioritise top-tier nutrition for my pets. Our excitement was palpable when Nala Health's first delivery arrived. All three dogs relished the taste, and it met my stringent standards for quality. I appreciate Nala Health's environmentally-conscious approach using insect protein. I wholeheartedly recommend Nala Health dog food.

    Lykke and Diva

    Lykke was suffering terribly from IBD causing diarrhea, bloody stools, and pain. This prompted an immediate switch to Nala Health. Within a day, her condition improved significantly with firmer stools and no blood. After three days, she was back to her old self. My other French Bulldog, just 5 months old and battling giardia, also showed dramatic improvement after switching to Nala Health despite ongoing medication. Within two days, her symptoms eased. I believe Nala Health has been crucial in their recovery.

  • Testemonials Nala Health Zaffi


    Zaffi was diagnosed with IBD and pancreatitis. He now eats Nala Health senior food and is a happy chap – and he has never been more stably healthy. Choosing dog food for my dogs has to fulfil 3 criteria; the health of my dogs, the impact on the environment, and animal welfare. Cost, of course, is also a consideration

Premium dog food


Many dogs suffer from food allergies, reacting negatively to proteins like chicken, soy, and beef. Such dogs often benefit from diets featuring novel protein sources to ease their symptoms. Insect protein, particularly from black soldier fly larvae (BSFL), serves as a nutritious and complete alternative. Nala Health provides hypoallergenic dog food with clean, honest ingredients, using BSFL protein. This protein is easily digestible, rich in all 10 essential amino acids for dogs, and produced without antibiotics or growth hormones, ensuring a clean and sustainable protein source.

Insect Protein

Let’s take a closer look at what black soldier fly larva has to offer:

Complete protein: BSFL is a complete and easily digestible protein, nutritionally comparable to fish.
Zinc and iron: BSFL contains more zinc and iron than lean meat.
Calcium: BSFL contains more calcium than milk.
Fatty acids: BSFL contains essential fatty acids. The fats also add flavour to the food.
Fibre: BSFL contains fibre, unlike other meats such as chicken and beef.

Future Focused

We also want to support a more future-oriented and less resource-intensive food production. The production of insect protein emits a fraction of the greenhouse gases compared to traditional meat production, marine algae is a sustainable source of DHA omega 3, ancient grains are more drought resistant and the baobab fruit is grown on a regenerative farm.

Good for our dogs and good for the planet.
