Manufacturer's product description

" Here at The Natural Dog Food Company we believe that for a happy, healthy dog, nature knows best. For that reason, our range of foods have:

No artificial ingredients

Are free from wheat, maize, dairy and soya

No by-products, derivatives or fillers

100% human grade ingredients

Hypoallergenic

Every ingredient used in Natural Dog Food is of the highest available quality and has been carefully selected to reflect the natural diet of the dog.

Furthermore, by combining a high proportion of fresh, human grade meat with our unique range of nutritional herbs, vegetables and whole grains we have been able to create the first complete dog food to contain every nutrient a dog needs without any artificial vitamin supplementation whatsoever.

Natural Dog Food Company have developed a range or foods for the mature dogs and younger dogs that are prone to weight gain which tend to face very similar challenges; joint strain, reduced mobility and impaired major organ function. Natural Dog Food Company Senior/Light caters perfectly for both groups of dogs with its broad selection of therapeutic herbs, specifically chosen to maintain mobility and organ function. Calorie content is kept low to help ensure a healthy weight is maintained whilst a marginally increased protein level helps to prevent the muscle wastage so often seen in dieting or older dogs and helps maintain muscle condition.

Our Fresh British Chicken and Turkey is from non-battery farmed higher welfare hens and straight out of the human food chain, that means no nasty off cuts like the feathers and feet used by some manufacturers. We believe this reflects in the health of your dog and certainly makes every meal time a happy occasion. "

Natural

The Natural Dog Food Company's Turkey Light variety is intended for both elderly dogs over 7 years of age and overweight adult dogs from 12 months on.

Like all Natural Dog Food Company products, Turkey Light's ingredients are of a very high standard - meat meal, whole grains and UK farmed vegetables and herbs. It does, however, contain less meat and much more grains than the rest of the adult range but this is somewhat justifiable since both older dogs and overweight dogs need less fat and calories from their diet.

The 'mixed vegetables and herbs' entry is a little vague which makes it difficult to know exactly what you're feeding.

The suggested feeding amounts are low making Turkey Light surprisingly economical to feed.

In its literature, the Natural Dog Food Company emphasises the fact that, unlike just about everyone else, they don't use synthetic vitamins in their foods. I'm afraid I can't find enough research on the pros and cons of synthetic vitamins to comment but more details can be found on the Natural Dog Food Company website.

Conclusion: Turkey Light is a good quality food for older and overweight dogs and is economical to feed.
