Who we are

Liz took over the business from a friend in Hillcrest in 1996, who was relocating to Port Elizabeth.

The K9 brand was started in Cape Town in the early 1990’s by Joyce Kruger, and the brand was franchised to KZN, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth.

In the beginning it was a small family business which was ideal to manage between fetching and carrying two daughters from school.

In 2016 when Joyce had retired, we broke away from the franchise and continued the same recipes under the new brand name of PETS KITCHEN.

The name PETS KITCHEN was chosen to put across the message of a “home cooked” meal for your fur babies, giving them a complete, balanced food that can be fed on its own or with dry cubes to add a little canine joy to meal times.

The only thing that changed was the label. Pets Kitchen pet meals use fresh meat from our local butcher, fresh veggies and rice. A vitamin mix designed specifically for this food are added, and other healthy ingredients which is minimally cooked to produce an awesome pet meal and then blast frozen. NO additives or preservatives used.

  • We also produce a 1kg pack with additional macaroni.
  • A small amount of garlic is added which helps to keep the fleas at bay.
  • We can guarantee your fur babies will love the food!
  • With over 28 years of testimonies to this amazing food, you can’t go wrong 
  • Lovely healthy shiny coats
  • Perfect stools
  • No overweight dogs (if correct feeding amounts are adhered to)
  • Happy dogs


We supply a variety of retail stores and can be found in the freezer section of most Pick n Pay stores, Spars, Bluff Meat Supply and some Pet Shops and Vets from Margate to Salt Rock and Escourt in the west.

We will be expanding into the rest of KZN in the near future.
