Okey Doggy supplements provide top-quality, natural healthcare products that aim to enhance the health and overall wellness of cats and dogs.

We work with veterinarians and nutritionists to carefully select natural ingredients to formulate our products, guaranteeing the best quality.

Happy and healthy pets, that’s our motto and our mission. 

Okey Doggy has evolved with passion and integrity from the special connections that we share with our pets. All Okey Doggy products are 100% natural and manufactured in Australia, covering joint support, intestinal (gut) care containing prebiotics and probiotics, multivitamins, fish oil (Omega 3, 6, & 9) etc. along with a special food-grade deodoriser.

Okey Doggy supports RSPCA NSW with a $1 donation for each product sold.

Elevate your cat’s health and happiness with nature-made nutrition

1. Advanced Synbiotic Digestion Plus (90g, 30 x 3g sachets)

The specifically designed natural formulation contains both probiotics and prebiotics to support the entire body, with a special focus on improving digestive health and promoting a healthy skin and coat.

It will ensure optimum gut health, which in turn helps pet’s overall health. A well-balanced gut microbiome will support your cat’s developing immune system. 

Synbiotics help with digestion of nutrients from a well-balanced diet so cats can grow, play and thrive. It will also help recovery from diarrhoea, dehydration or intestinal dysfunction.

Why Synbiotics?

Most probiotics products out there will only include probiotics. But for probiotics to be effective, you need prebiotics. The idea behind Synbiotics is that the prebiotics help the probiotics survive in the intestines. This could help balance the gut bacteria, which will benefit cats’ gut health, metabolism, and immune system.

2. Organic King Seaweed (200g)

A 100% natural mixture of seaweed designed as a multifunctional supplement to aid oral health and hygiene, and to act as a multivitamins and minerals supplement.

To ensure the high standard of our products, we have sourced one of the most nutrient-rich seaweed, collected from 
Tasmania (Australia) - one of the purest & cleanest environment place around the world. 

Tasmanian Seaweed is rich in more than 50 nutrients including Vitamin A, B complex, C, E, K and trace minerals, iodine, calcium, copper, iron, potassium, sodium, zinc, and cobalt.

Word’s out that Tasmania, the southern island of Australia, is one of the planet’s last unspoiled places, and it’s reputed to have the world’s purest air and cleanest water.

Why Choose Seaweed?

Seaweed is the best dietary source of iodine, which helps support the thyroid gland, but both cat, dog and human bodies do not make iodine on its own, so we need to get it from food sources or supplements. Seaweed is a great source of vitamins A, B, C, E and K. Seaweed is rich in minerals (iodine, selenium, calcium, copper, zinc, cobalt, iron, etc.) It makes seaweed ideal for use as a comprehensive economical multi-vitamins and minerals supplement.

3. Omega 3 6 9 Oil (500ml)

Okey Doggy Omega 3 6 9 Oil provides Omega-3-6-9 essential fatty acids, responsible for healthy skin and fur, as well as heart health and cognitive function.

It contains well-balanced Omega 3, 6, 9 Oil extracted from deep sea fish oil and vegetable oil, with the addition of Vitamin E to provide comprehensive and balanced omega oil to support your dogs’ general health and wellbeing.
  • Deepsea fish oil is extracted from salmon (approx. 60%), Pacific herring and Spanish mackerel. 
  • Vegetable oil is extracted from 100% vegetable (canola oil, corn oil & soybean oil).
What is Omega Oil 3,6,9?

Omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids are important dietary fats. They all have health benefits and it’s important to get the right balance between them. An imbalance in diet may contribute to numerous chronic diseases.

4. Natural Joint Ultiboost (150g)

This is a natural supplement which contains the powerful natural anti-inflammatory substances: Rosehip and C3 Curcumin. Together, they can assist with joint health, immune system and fighting off mild infections.

Rosehip boosts the immune system and rich in disease fighting antioxidants. It also contains Galactolipids, which has been proven to reduce inflammation in the body.

✔️ Curcumin C3 Complex is an extract derived from the rhizomes (roots) of the plant Curcuma longa, also known as turmeric. Curcumin C3 Complex is the foremost clinically-studied natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with a variety of health benefits.

Natural Joint Ultiboost contains a synergistic combination of gold standard C3 Curcumin, natural Rosehip and Glucosamine. This helps to provide advanced relief from debilitating arthritic symptoms in dogs.

5. Antibacterial and Deodorant Spray (300ml)

It helps pets maintain a fresh scent and improves general health. It is also great for skin regenerationpreventing wound infection plus an odour remover for pets and environment.

Adopt Different and give a pet most in need a brighter future

With 1 in 5 families acquiring a new dog or cat [1] to add to the family unit in recent years, the Petspiration Foundation (formally PETstock Assist) is encouraging Australians to Adopt Different this National Pet Adoption Month by considering a pet most in need, with more than 7,400 [2] animals currently looking for a forever home.

Sherralea Cassidy, Petspiration Foundation’s Charity and Events Lead, says the charity is on a mission to have cats, large dogs, adolescent dogs and bonded pairs that can’t be separated, adopted as they remain the most vulnerable in 2023.
“All pets deserve a safe and loving home, and National Pet Adoption Month is the perfect opportunity to meet pets searching for a new family,” says Sherralea.
Natural disasters, increasing living costs, inflation and access to housing [3] are impacting pet ownership and leading to surrenders of pets. PetRescue Founder and Director, Vickie Davy, is seeing great dogs coming into rescue care, ready for a new home, even if some training is needed.

“The fact is that only a small percentage of pets are surrendered due to their behaviour which - like any animal - can be negated through dedicated training,” says Vickie.

Animal Behaviourist, Dr Kate Mornement, says, many rescue pets have been house pets in the past and are already toilet trained, with basic manners so you’re not starting from scratch - it’s about reinforcing the existing desired behaviours and building on these.

“There are so many options when it comes to adoption. Cats are wonderfully intelligent animals, fantastic for any size home, and can be easily trained (just like dogs) using positive reinforcement,” says Kate.

“I also encourage would-be rescue pet owners not to be put off by a large dog because you think it will need more exercise, as it is very much dependent on the breed, age and individual personality of the dog. For those concerned about being in the office and leaving their pet, a bonded pair could be the answer as they have each other for company.”

Adoption Month Ambassador, Jacqueline Felgate visits pets in need at Second Chance Animal Rescue

The Petspiration Foundation exists to strengthen the rewarding bond between pets and people and has found homes for more than 13,000 rescue pets since its inception in 2007.
6.9 million Australian households [4] currently are pet owners.

Animal lovers are encouraged to visit in March to find a pet that needs a forever home.

PetRescue's AI feature set to revolutionise pet profile writing for shelter animals

PetRescue launches an innovative AI feature to revolutionise pet profile writing to help save more animals

PetRescue, an animal welfare charity connecting rescue pets with potential adopters via Australia’s largest adoption platform (, has leveraged Machine Learning (ML) to accelerate the ability for the rescue community to help thousands more pets each year.

Harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the team at PetRescue has introduced a prompt-based feature designed to help write a pet’s profile, helping to relieve workloads and speed up the adoption process.

“Rescue organisations often struggle with limited resources, and writing engaging pet profile content can be a time-consuming task,” explained Patima Tantiprasut, PetRescue Managing Director.

Entering a few bullet notes of a pet’s personality traits is all that’s needed for the AI Bot to generate a compelling profile in three-quarters of the time it would normally take. It saves pet rescue organisations time to focus on more important things, like rehabilitating the pets in their care and managing adoption enquiries to find good homes for pets.”

The AI feature not only helps rescue organisations save time, but also efficiently creates the draft with editable content for engaging and informative pet profiles that could increase the chances of pets finding homes faster.

"Tasks like creative writing can be time-consuming and stressful, especially for rescue organisations who are already stretched for resources. We want to help make things as easy as possible for the rescue community who are busy helping pets,” said Tantiprasut.

“As powerful as it is, the AI Bot could never replace the task completely because every pet is beautifully unique. But by reducing the time they spend writing pet profiles, rescuers can have more capacity to care for and help more pets, ultimately leading to more pets finding loving homes faster.”

Pilot AI feature released to members for feedback

After training the PetRescue AI Bot to learn how to write pet profiles, it’s since been released as a pilot feature to member rescue organisations with the goal to continue improving and developing its capability with use. PetRescue is inviting feedback from its Australian member rescue community during these early stages and plans to continue evolving the feature further into the future.

“The new feature is already receiving positive reviews from rescue organisations who have praised the simplicity and ease of use of the AI Bot. And as the feature continues to evolve with each use, it is set to become an even more valuable tool,” said Tantiprasut.

PetRescue member Maneki Neko Cat Rescue’s founder Samantha McKernan knows well how challenging and time- consuming it can be to write profiles for cats but understands the crucial role it plays in increasing the homeless felines’ chances of being adopted.
“PetRescue's AI Bot is already making a significant impact and has the potential to save our volunteers so much time,” said McKernan.
“By providing a few key points, the bot generates a compelling profile that engages potential adopters. This frees up volunteers to focus on caring for cats in need. The AI Bot is a game-changer in our mission to support cat welfare and increase adoptions!”

AI Bot or Human?
The profile of Barbados the cat (now adopted) was created by PetRescue’s AI Bot for Maneki Neko Cat Rescue using just a few dot points.

Tantiprasut explained, “For pet profiles, we will keep training the bot to learn to optimise the languages to best describe and bring out the best features for individual pets. Finding the most effective profile formula and including descriptive, emotive language that can increase the connection that a potential adopter can have with the pet to increase the chances of getting adopted.”

"We're excited to keep exploring the possibilities with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Innovations like the AI Bot that can help with time-consuming tasks are going to help transform the way we work, enabling the rescue community to help even more pets in need.”

The new AI Bot feature is just one of the many ways that PetRescue is leveraging the latest in technology to help find a home for every pet.

“We're only just scratching the surface with the technology! There are endless opportunities where it can help multiply capacity and ability to help more people and pets!” said Tantiprasut.

“AI can potentially be able to help adopters show their best sides in their adoption applications as well. The area that we're exploring is being able to analyse the data at scale and identify trends and anomalies. Typically, this takes a lot of time to translate data and insights into fast action.

Understanding the trends, changes, movements and challenges helps us to ensure the work we do can help as many pets as possible.”

Australians love naming their fur babies with popular human baby names

To celebrate Love Your Pet Day on February 20, Pet Circle, Australia’s largest online pet supplies store, has revealed the most popular and most unusual dog and cat names that Australians have lovingly called their pet in 2022, as well as the most popular breeds.

Topping Pet Circle’s list of names for both cats and dogs born in 2022 was Luna, which was also the most popular name in 2021. The biggest movers were Daisy, which moved from eighth position to third in the dog list and Coco, which moved from seventh to third in the cat list.

“With pets increasingly being seen as ‘fur children’, it should come as no surprise that the names we use for our pets, especially our dogs, are beginning to imitate some of Australia’s most loved baby names,” says Pet Circle Head Vet Dr Teagan Lever.

60 per cent of Pet Circle’s top 20 dog and cat names feature in parenting website BabyCentre Australia's Top 100 baby boy and girls names in 2022, including 80% of the top 20 dog names and 45% of the top 20 cat names.

Some of the most popular choices for both fur babies and human babies were: Luna, Charlie, Daisy, Frankie, Bella, Millie, Ruby, Molly, Rosie, Lola, Willow, Archie, Teddy, Ollie, Leo, Max, Alfie, Jasper and George.

Pet Circle’s Vet Squad and Customer Service team has also shared some of the more unusual names that they came across last year.

“Some interesting dog names we’ve seen include Hiccup, Marshmallow, Olaf, Moo, Wombat, Cerberus, Toast and Colin the Relentless. My personal favourites are Dyson, considering many dogs do act like vacuum cleaners, and a Mini Dachshund called Bratwurst,” says Dr Teagan.

“For cat names, some owners can get really creative and this year we’ve seen some really fun, unique names, including Meow, Principessa d'affettuoso which means affectionate princess, cat siblings named ‘fish’ and ‘chips’, and Dwayne the Cat Thompson, which a customer’s son cleverly came up with.”

When it comes to dog breeds, the most popular breeds born last year were the Cavoodle, followed by the Golden Retriever, Border Collie, Labrador and Dachshund.

For cats, Domestic Short-hair, Ragdoll and Domestic Medium-hair were the top three breeds born last year, with the line up staying the same as 2021.

“We all know that Oodle mix breeds have become very popular over the past couple of years due to their allergy-friendly coats, stylish look and variety of colours. This has helped the Cavoodle keep the top spot and seen Groodles, Labradoodles and Toy Poodles break into this year's top 10 dog breeds. 

It's nice to see some traditional dog breeds like the Golden RetrieverBorder Collie and Labrador still hold their spot” says Dr Teagan.

“Aside from more human pet names, a big trend we are also seeing for breeds as a result of pet humanisation is pet products now being made to specifically meet the needs of breeds including their dietary requirements, ailments, unusual shapes and sizes, and behaviour.”

“This includes breed specific pet food, treats and supplements to optimise their health, toys for specific breed groups such as tougher toys for strong chewers and complicated puzzles for intelligent breeds, and harnesses and clothing for different shaped dogs like GreyhoundsFrench Bulldogs and Dachshunds.”

Petbarn Foundation and SavourLife encouraging Aussies to adopt and help save 200 pups from pounds

Australians love their pets and is ranked as a country with the highest pet ownership in the world, however an increase in pet surrenders has seen the number of cats and dogs available for adoption skyrocket. 

In the last financial year, tens of thousands of cats and dogs have ended up in in the care of rescue shelters throughout Australia.

This February, Petbarn Foundation is promoting Rescue Month, encouraging Australians who are thinking of adding a new furry member to their family, to adopt and give a pet a second chance at a loving home.

Since 2012, the Petbarn Foundation instore adoption centres have helped 66,500 cats find their fur-ever home. Throughout 2023 Rescue Month, its aiming to bring that total to 67,000 and is urging potential pet parents to consider adoption.

Petbarn Foundation Manager, Janelle Bloxsom (lead image), says, “Sadly there has been a large spike in the number of pets being surrendered. For many Australians, pet ownership has been presented with new challenges due to the post pandemic lifestyle changes, the increase in cost of living pressures and the rental market crisis forcing tenants to choose between their pets and a home.

“The increase in pet surrenders is leaving animal shelters and rescues overflowing and at breaking point. February is a notoriously busy month for rescue groups across the country post the Christmas period and with kitten season, but the rate at which we are seeing animals surrendered is unlike anything we have experienced.

“Unfortunately, there are so many animals to rescue, it’s at the point where they are at full capacity. Rescues often rely on donations and volunteers to operate and due to the influx of animals, there just isn’t enough time, money or resources to continue to take in unwanted animals.”

Petbarn Foundation
partners with SavourLife Adopt-A-Dog, which has seen on average between 75%- 115% more dogs available for adoption in the last six months. 

With pet surrenders increasing, the greater number of dogs that can be rehomed will help lessen the immense pressure the rescue groups are experiencing.

Michael McTeigue, Founder and Managing Director, SavourLife, says, “Many of our rescue partners now face the most difficult circumstances they have ever faced, with a surge of abandonment and less enquiries for existing dogs, combined with difficulties in finding new foster carers, taking a huge toll on them.

“We’d like to acknowledge the tireless and often heartbreaking work that these rescue groups do, day after day, dog after dog.

"We are thrilled to partner with the Petbarn Foundation again this year and together donate $200,000 between 20 of our incredible rescue partners across Australia to help them save and rehome more dogs.

“Our goal this February is to help our rescue partners save 200 pups from pounds who are at direct risk. We’re encouraging Aussies who are thinking about adding a dog to their family to consider adoption as their first choice.”

All pets adopted instore at Petbarn locations or from SavourLife Adopt-A-Dog rescue partners have been temperament tested, health checked, fully vaccinated and desexed so you know they are ready for their forever family.

During February, Petbarn Foundation and SavourLife are encouraging those who are thinking of adopting a dog to head to one of the participating Petbarn stores nationwide to meet some of the four legged friends who could be become their new pawfect family member.

For feline lovers, a Pet Dating weekend was held during Valentine’s Day weekend (Friday 10 February – Sunday 12 February). Petbarn stores across the country had many cats and kittens in-store, available for adoption through the RSPCA. During that weekend, the Petbarn stores partnering with the RSPCA reduced adoption fee to $50 for cats over 6 months (usually from $200) and $150 for kittens under 6 months (usually from $250).

Cal Wilson’s quest to find Victoria’s Biggest Cat Lover

In a bid to match more Victorians with their happily fur-ever after, The Cat Protection Society of Victoria is celebrating all things love this February.

In a move that’s sure to get hearts purring, the Cat Protection Society of Victoria, with the help of their newest ambassador Cal Wilson is on the lookout for Victoria’s Biggest Cat Lover, someone who is hopelessly devoted to all things moggie.

The popular comedian’s very own love affair has started with a purrfect little Torti that she recently adopted from the Society.

“I went to The Cat Protection Society and ‘accidentally’ adopted a sister for my other great furry loves Pirate and Barnable. Her name is Kipper,” she said. I know that I’m a crazy cat lady, and cannot wait to see who else loves their furry friends as much as I do!”

“To show your love and passion for our feline friends the Society is searching for Victoria’s Biggest Cat Lover. I’m in a pretty good position to win, but I challenge other crazy cat people out there who think they may live and breathe kitties more than I do to enter!” Cal said.

The Shelter’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Rachel Bitzilis said the hope was that the campaign would encourage Victorians to celebrate all things cats and to consider adopting their own four-legged friend.

“The search was created to help celebrate the amazing role that cats can play as companion animals and raise the profile of cats as pets,” she said.

“We hope that this will encourage people that may be considering cat ownership to think about adopting from our Society at a time when adoption applications are low and adult cats are spending more time than ever before at our Shelter.”

“Sadly the demand for pets has significantly reduced over the last year. We are finding this is because many Victorian families adopted pets during the pandemic so don’t have a need to currently add to their families and also because of the escalating cost of living,” Rachel said.

The winner of Victoria’s Biggest Cat Lover will not only receive bragging rights to this fur-lusterious title but some incredible prizes too.

“Finalists will be invited to the Society on March 3 to a party hosted by Belle Jackson from Nova 100’s Breakfast Team where the winner will be announced,” she said.

“The overall winner is not only given the title but will also win themselves and their furry bestie(s) a swag of prizes including a professional photoshoot and a year’s supply of pet food by Royal Canin.”
This month, the Society has also launched a Kitty Tinder, matching people to their purrfect feline friend.

“We are making it as easy as possible to start a love affair this month. Regardless of your preference, orientation, experience, and lifestyle, we are confident we can help you find your feline soulmate. The profiles of eligible bachelors and bachelorettes who are available for adoption at our Shelter are online. You can check them out here and if you find one that takes your fancy you can book in for an adoption ‘meet and greet’ speed dating appointment,” Rachel said.

Victoria’s Biggest Cat Lover Search is now open and closes at 5pm on Tuesday 28 February

It is open to all cat lovers who live in Victoria and applications can be submitted via
