Quality - Our priority!

Dog snacks and cat snacks made by DOKAS are subject to regular quality inspections by SGS Institut Fresenius. This independent testing institute enjoys an excellent reputation for its food quality inspections, particularly in Germany, and offers many years of experience.

SGS Institut Fresenius determines the nutritional values of DOKAS snacks at fixed intervals. In addition, all DOKAS production facilities pass unannounced supplier audits twice a year.

This voluntary inspection programme therefore guarantees consistently high-quality products, which DOKAS can visibly indicate on its products with a symbol.

DOKAS also relies on SGS Institut Fresenius' expertise in other areas i. e. for chemical and microbiological laboratory tests and product declaration.

Even products without the SGS Institut Fresenius seal are subject to the same strict test criteria. This means that we make no compromises and rely on our proven quality strategy right from the start.

Because the highest degree of measurable quality is the result of regular and permanent examinations. Therefore, our snacks only receive the well-established quality stamp after a meticulous testing process.

Composition & Ingredients

Snacks play an important role in feeding your pet these days. A reward or a treat every now and then is part of your dog´s or cat's diet. However, a healthy diet is becoming increasingly important. For this very reason, snacks don't just have to be tasty so that your pet will love them, but also have to be easily digestible and easy to handle. Therefore, we pay close attention to the quality and production of our snacks. We are very meticulous when it comes to selecting ingredients and focus intensively on producing the best possible snacks. The raw materials and the end product are also inspected regularly throughout the entire manufacturing process. Every company that produces for us is subject to strict inspection criteria in order to comply with the necessary quality standards (i. e. BRC, IFS). But that's not all! We rely on SGS Institut Fresenius' independent expertise as one of the world's leading bodies for product testing and certifications in end product testing and inspecting our snack production facilities.


Meat is one of the main constituents of a dog or cat’s diet, and is therefore the basis for most of our snacks. By carefully selecting raw materials and carefully processing them, high-quality nutrients such as protein and fats in our snacks can contribute to maintaining a natural diet for your pet.


Fish is a healthy and nutritious alternative to our meat products. It boasts a high percentage of unsaturated fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids help your pet to maintain healthy skin and a shiny coat.

Fruit & vegetables

The vitamins and trace elements found in fruit & vegetables are not only good for humans, but are also essential for our four-legged friends’ well-being. Specially-selected types in the appropriate amounts which are also easy for your pet to digest are therefore part of a varied and balanced diet. For this reason, we like to mix meat and fish with apple, banana, mango, carrot and sweet potato.


Bones are like toothbrushes for dogs. As well as this, they’re a great way to keep your pooch busy. Our bones are made from rawhide and pigskin. We highly value traditional processing methods and a manufacturing process which preserves the bones’ nutritional content. We usually combine them with other ingredients such as fish skin or meat, and therefore give them that little extra something that makes them just so popular among dogs.

Tip: Dogs who regularly get bones to chew on will leave other household objects like shoes, carpets and furniture well alone.


Dogs need salt, particularly for the production of hydrochloric acid in their stomachs and to maintain their nervous system. Acid needs to be produced in their stomachs to digest meat. Salt also contains important minerals. We only add small amounts of less than 0.3%.


Yeast is high-protein and has a high biological value. Your pet’s body can put the protein in yeast to good use. A further advantage of yeast is that it contains valuable vitamins and minerals which are needed to maintain skin cells and fur.

Herbal products

Herbal products are materials which have been extracted after the processing of plant products such as vegetables or legumes. We only use high-quality raw materials for production reasons. We at DOKAS do not use any substandard waste products or bulking agents.


These are essential inorganic nutrients that the organism cannot produce itself. Your pet has to obtain them through their food. We only use low amounts of salt (less that 0.3%). This contains important minerals and fulfils several important functions (also see the section on salt).

Quality basis

Product development

We want to always be one paw ahead when it comes to developing our snacks.

Therefore, we only manufacture snacks in production facilities that are inspected by independent institutions and meet our high quality requirements. We also do not shy away from allowing independent institutes to regularly inspect our production sites. Therefore, we go above and beyond the usual standards with our quality requirements.

We invest in close, honest relationships with our business partners, which are founded on a basis of trust and mutual respect. It is only in this way that our products can meet the requirements of dogs & cats on a long-term basis.

We believe that standing still is taking a step back. Therefore, we are constantly working to improve our processes and products.
