Our story

Jemma and Jackson on the beach

when a food scientist talks nutrition with his daughter

(who always knows best)

The idea of a superfood dog treat started with a chat between a father and daughter.

Health conscious Jemma was trying to convince her dad that he should add green juice and vitamins to his daily routine. Mark thought he was pretty healthy for his age, but looking at his daughter drinking her turmeric, kale and apple juice he knew he could be doing more. In a bid to change the conversation, Mark started talking about Jackson, their much loved family Lab.

They discussed exercise and diet and what else they could do to take good care of him. “We need a green juice for dogs!” joked Jemma. Looking at Jemma’s slimy green concoction, Mark was not convinced. However it did get him thinking…

For ultimate wellness, dogs need added nutrients and vitamins in their diet.

As a food scientist and director of Apetite Foods Group, Mark has been instrumental in developing market leading brands such as Blackdog, Pets Own and Vita Bics over many years. However, what about complete wellness care for dogs?

The Apetite team began researching vitamins and superfoods; it soon became clear that Hemp Oil and Hemp Protein had some seriously worthwhile health benefits for dogs. Mark and the team got to work and eventually developed an entire range of superfood dog treats!

Vitalitae is now the only dog treat made in Australia with Hemp Oil and Protein as the core component.

A truly wholesome dog treat with vitamins and superfoods. Jemma is quite chuffed that her idea is now available in pet specialty stores around Australia!

Hemp oil & Protein

Hemp seed oil and hemp seed nutrients are the new superfoods. They have long been known to provide many health benefits, but it is only recently with changes to regulations that they have been permitted to be added to both human and pet foods.

They are full of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids in the ideal ratio, with a rich mineral profile including magnesium, zinc, iron, as well as abundant amino acids and proteins.

Hemp seed has no detectable levels of the compound THC, which is the component in cannabis responsible for psychoactive effects.

Vitalitae is the first superfood treat of its kind to be available in Australia, and also made right here in Australia.

Vitalitae superfood dog treats: inside the wellness

Hip & Joint

A multi-nutrient formula to support cartilage health and joint mobility.

Glucosamine and chondroitin are traditional remedies and often given as an aid in the treatment of dogs suffering osteoarthritis, hip and joint pain or inflammation, so there is good reason to include them in the diet as a possible prevention or treatment for these conditions as your pet ages.

The Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids in hemp seed are considered to be in the ideal ratio and may act as an anti-inflammatory agent, while turmeric has long been understood to have anti-inflammatory properties. As a natural occurring herbal remedy it has traditionally been used for many conditions in both humans and dogs.

Available as biscuits and jerky.


A chamomile blend to relieve nervous tension and encourage settled behaviour.

Chamomile is widely used as an aid for many conditions, but is best known as a relaxant for humans and also their furry friends.

Importantly we add L-Tryptophan as it is one of 10 essential amino acids that dogs require in their diet, and is a precursor to the production of serotonin and melatonin which are involved in a number of metabolic pathways that control sleep, behaviour and mood. It may play a vital role in supporting your dog’s wellbeing by regulating stress and anxiety in the brain.

To complete the perfect blend, Ginger has been included, as it has for many years been used as a relaxant and calmative agent.

Available as biscuits and jerky.


Our prebiotic formula supports intestinal and digestive health.

Prebiotics are typically non-digestable compounds in food that help and stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria and fungi in the gastrointestinal tract so they can optimise the gut microbial make up for better digestive health.

The Vitalitae Digestion blend (biscuits only) also importantly contains charcoal powder, which is widely used in human and canine nutrition as a natural ingredient to help with digestion and stomach complaints. In dogs it can also assist in the age-old doggie problem of ‘wind’.

Available as biscuits and jerky.

Skin & Coat

Essential fatty acids maintain healthy skin and coats.

Long associated with many health benefits, EPA and DHA are added in the ideal ratio plus sunflower oil and fish oil, which results in very high levels of Omega 3 and 6.

In particular, Linoleic Acid is an Omega 6 and essential fatty acid which is most important in promoting healthy skin and coat.

Available as biscuits and jerky.

Immunity & Defence

Vitamins and antioxidants for a healthy immune system.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, helping to slow the ageing process caused by free radicals in the body that damage cell membranes, cell DNA and other cellular components. Tying up free radicals may also help to maintain peak immune system function, while added Garlic, known to have a number of health benefits is also high in selenium, which may in conjunction with Vitamin E help boost the immune system — making for a longer and happier life.

Available as biscuits and jerky.
