Get NORM.

Get WILD.

NORM started with a simple idea: offer an alternative to the wild claims of the pet food industry by creating something truly wild.

NORM is a range of human grade, freeze-dried meal toppers and freakshakes for dogs and cats, using carefully selected ingredients that are not only deeply nutritious, but also just a little bit different.

Not everyone has access to some of the weirder, wilder ingredients that pets would have enjoyed once upon a time, but that does not mean they should miss out.

NORM has carved a collection of fun, hard to find proteins, weird organs, and nutritious superfoods for a pet's dining pleasure and entertainment.

All NORM products are made in Australia. The company uses a network of suppliers and has fully vetted them all for accreditation and compliance with food safety regulations. NORM sources all of their meat and dairy from human grade suppliers in Australia; none of this is ever imported or pet grade. 

NORM is a genuinely premium product, with absolutely no fillers nor any corners cut to save costs. A little bit of NORM goes a long way.

NORM Freakshakes!

 

NORM Freakshakes are Australian-made milkshake powders that just need to be mixed with water or yoghurt.

NORM Freakshake products are undeniably fun, weird, and unique but, importantly, they are also genuinely good for pets! NORM has created an easy and delicious way for owners to keep their pets hydrated while adding extra nutrients, antioxidants, and gut health benefits to their diet.

 

Having a puppy party? Get your Freak on!

Usage of the products is limited only by pet owners’ imaginations. Concoctions have included frozen icy poles, mocktails, yoghurt desserts, and even tacos!

Pet hydration

The average total body water percentage for adult dogs is typically around 60% to 80%! This range can vary based on factors such as breed, size, age, and overall health.

Many pets don’t drink enough water, especially during extreme temperatures. Most dogs should drink 50-60ml per kg of their body weight per day, so a 10kg dog would need 500-600ml of water per day. 

An average cat (4kg) needs up to one cup of water (240ml) per day, which can also be sourced from their food if they’re eating canned or fresh food diets.

Made by mixing the product with water, NORM freakshakes are an ideal way to encourage pets to stay hydrated!

Meal toppers

 

NORM Meal Toppers are freeze-dried, single ingredient powders, perfect for adding to pet food, Lickimats, Kongs, freakshakes, or homemade dog treats.

NORM freeze dries their products because it is a method of preservation that does not use any heat, so the nutrients in food remain closest to their raw state. This makes it the superior choice - naturally!

The freeze-dried products are approximately 25% of the raw product weight, due to the water naturally present in the meat being removed. The 110g packet of Freeze-Dried Meal Toppers is the rough equivalent to 440g of raw product. A little NORM goes a long way!

How to feed

NORM meal toppers should be fed as a nutritional booster support to a balanced diet and can be sprinkled over a pet's food straight out of the bag, or they can be rehydrated in a bit of warm water.

 

If a pet eats kibble, NORM recommends adding some water so the topper and kibble mix together into a yummy stew.

NORM meal toppers can also be used in a treat dispenser such as a Lickimat.

Is it suitable for cats? 

 

All NORM products can be used for dog and cats, it is just the amount of product that changes. 

 

For cats new to the range, it is best to start them with the single ingredient meal toppers first, as they are more species-appropriate for our obligate carnivores and tend to be the most palatable.

 

The main ingredient in NORM is always meat, and cats will also benefit from the supplementary super food ingredients in NORM Freakshakes. We recommend trying the Freakshakes containing goat milk, which are Spirulina & Chicken Heart, Fear & Loathing, and Nine Lives.  While the new Freakshake product Nine Lives is marketed towards cats (containing the irresistible ingredient of catnip), it is still suitable for dogs.

All the products are suitable for cats and dogs of all ages, including puppies and kittens. Some varieties also contain superfoods that are highly nutritious and beneficial for puppies and seniors especially.

No Additives

The only thing that will ever go into a bag of NORM is what is listed in the ingredients. There will never be any preservatives, chemical additives, fillers, emulsifiers, humectants, starches, gums, binders, salt, sugar or synthetic nutrients and flavours in NORM. It is just not what they are about.

 

NORM is made from 100% whole foods that have been freeze dried or, in the case of some vegetables, fruits, and superfoods, air dried. This preserves the ingredients so that absolutely no additives are needed.

Sustainability

Using wild caught meats like kangaroo and goat offers several advantages over conventional livestock farming. Wild kangaroos and goats have a low environmental footprint, requiring no additional resources such as water, feed, or land, unlike farmed animals. This reduces greenhouse gas emissions and land degradation typically associated with conventional livestock farming.

 

Wild-caught meats like kangaroo and goat typically possess a distinct nutritional profile compared to farmed meat. They are leaner, with a richer concentration of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, attributed to their natural diets. Additionally, they are devoid of the antibiotics used routinely in intensive commercial farming. 

 

Furthermore, the "nose to tail" approach, which emphasizes using offal – the often-discarded internal organs and other parts of the animal – minimizes waste. This method promotes respect for the livestock, ensuring that the entire animal is used, valuing its life by reducing wasteful practices.

Serving Size

 

As with all foods, owners should introduce NORM slowly and follow the directions on the bag for their pet’s weight range.

 

For small dogs (under 10kg) and for cats, 2.5g of meal topper is a sufficient amount (roughly half a tablespoon). For larger dogs (over 10kg), 5g per day is a suitable serving (roughly one level tablespoon). 

 

Each 110g bag sells for $37.99 and will provide around 44 serves for a small dog or cat, and 22 for a larger dog. This puts the cost at roughly $0.85 per serve for a small dog or cat and $1.70 per serve for larger pets.
