Debatable quality of ingredients. I wanted to like this but there are some huge negatives. 1st ingredient chicken, or so you think, chicken meal is every part of the chicken, head, feet, feathers and all, crushed up, heated to a high temperature in water until all the water has evaporated and then you bake the rest until it resembles a white powder. Unfortunately there is not really any ‘legal guidelines’ governing dog food except that it has to contain a minimum of 4% meat, so the chicken they use can be rotting dying animals, dead animals from test facilities, petting zoos etc, spoiled meats from butchers, supermarkets etc and it all goes in to make this yukky white meal powder. I learnt this from working at forthglade and my dog has been on raw ever since, and not once has she ever eaten any of their products ever again, shocking what they put in it and sell to the consumer. At the time i took this to review i was not aware of the ingredients otherwise i would not of taken it. This is of course personal preference, you are grown adults, you can make your own minds up, my dog is pretty savvy and i always wondered why she would take one sniff and walk away, and then i found out. As far as dental health is concerned, this is no different in shape or texture than any of the other kibbles on the market, it is round, and flat. I do applaud the rest of the ingredients, being grain and soya free etc, but until the company puts a statement on the packet saying all of their chicken is ethically sourced from the uk only, and only contains chicken breast and thigh meat, and organs, then my dog isnt going to have it, and i wont be wasting my money on it.
Pricey but gets our dog eating. My 10 year old ex-racing greyhound doesn’t have a fantastic appetite, and i was hoping this would encourage her eating. She loves it, and usually goes on to clear her dish. She has this as an add-on to her normal dried kibble diet (to feed her entirely on this stuff apparently would required more than 7 packs per day). The packs are easy to peel open, and you can then just tip the contents into her dish. The food stays in a solid block, but is easily broken up with a spoon to mix it into the rest of the kibbles. It is a bit whiffy, but not unbearably so. It is on the pricey side at about £15 for 12, but as a short term tool to get her eating it is effective.
Wellbeing grain free dog food. . We put this down in front of our dog as a little treat and it was gone in a few seconds. It is great for hiding the odd worming tablet in and makes a decent sized portion for a large dog as an extra snack after a big run out. Hard to say whether she likes the taste over other food as our dog will happily eat horse droppings, so her taste is not the most discerning, but this seems like a decent, nutritious food without excessive additives and there were no digestive complaints the next day. Worth trying on your dog to see how it goes. Here are the specifications for the Wellbeing Chicken Grain Free Dog Food Digestive Health 10kg:
With all the different type of dog food around it is going to be hard to discover the ‘right one’ for your dog. They all seem to have the correct ingredients that is best for your dog – so how to choose?easy, just let your dog decide. Knowing that whatever you put in front of him/her is good for them, surely it’s just a case of trying them out. So that is what we did with charlie (our cockerpoo) and when we put this one down it was gone in a couple of minutes (2 tubs) when normally he would eat some and go away and come back later when he felt hungry again. So as far as charlie is concerned this is a huge hit.
Well this has gone down very well with my dog. She can be a slightly fussy eater so trying here with any new food can end with a rejection. But this, mixed with some dry kibble, was wolfed down. The ingredients list looks ok and as a result i would be happy to feed her this in future – and that’s the acid test for me.
Reviews from purchasers :
This was loved by my pet pooch. The pieces are a good size and they have a crunch to help against the fight of plaque on your pets teeth. I found that i tended to use them as treats because if i gave him a bowl he ate them too fast even in his bowl which is supposed to prevent this. They have good nutrition content and don’t smell too offensive at all to my nose but they must smell like the best thing since ham to him as open the bag and within seconds he was there.
Use these as grain free treats for our labradors and they love them. Great bag sealing keeps them fresh.
