Manufacturer's product description

" Developed by Veterinary Surgeon, John Burns, who recognised that poor nutrition was the cause of many common health problems in pets. Burns Sensitive+ is hypo-allergenic, so it is suitable for sensitive dogs. It is formulated without ingredients such as wheat, soya, dairy, artificial colourings and artificial preservatives which are known to cause symptoms of food intolerance including itchy skin, digestive upset, excessive moulting, full anal glands and waxy ears. It contains all the nutrients a dog needs and avoids those which cause the build up of toxic waste in the system. Read how toxic build-up can affect health in John Burns's Health & Nutrition handbook. "

How come the blurb and packaging says it is hypoallergenic but this site suggests otherwise?

Great question! We don't regard maize as hypoallergenic while Burns evidently do. Unfortunately there is no strict definition so there are differences of opinion on what qualifies.

" Developed by Veterinary Surgeon, John Burns, who recognised that poor nutrition was the cause of many common health problems in pets. - How come then it only shows a nut val of 55%?

Thanks for posting Sue. The score is based on the nutritional merits of the food's ingredients and additives and how they are processed. Information like who formulated the food or why they did it isn't factored in.

I give these to my three Cocker Spaniels and they love them. I am happy that they are not bulked out with 'rubbish'. A tip - if you can afford to and can store them buy in bulk it is much cheaper. As to there being prepared in China I can not think that fish out there is any different to any other part of the world but I will keep an eye open for any change in content. Enjoy!

I've used these for a few years, all my dogs have loved them and they are great for their teeth, but now I find they've been outsourced and are now being made in China. Should I look for an alternative? Bit worried, I must admit.

My staffie cross has been on this food for 9 months now. He has a sensitive gut, in the sense that he passes a lot of gas and has episodic diarrhoea on certain foods or if he scavenges something inappropriate. I find that his gut is much better on Burns Sensitive+, with little or no gas or diarrhoea. Although it isn't the highest rated food, it is widely available and affordable, which are massively plus points in my book. A very good affordable alternative to an exclusion diet for allergies too.
