About us

Our family

4Legs is a proudly family owned Australian business. Located in Sunshine, Victoria, we have been making high quality, all natural, fresh pet food for over 25 years.

Our story began in 1996 when Tony Ratten was scouring supermarket shelves for a fresh, wholesome food to feed the beloved family dog, Coco the Schnauzer. Unable to find what he was looking for, Tony decided to create his own, and 4Legs was born!

Today, 4Legs is a true family enterprise with all three of Tony’s children working in the business and sharing a passion for crafting delicious and nutritious meals for cherished family pets.
