Manufacturer's product description

" Veterinary Surgeon, John Burns, recognised that poor nutrition was the cause of many common health problems in pets.

Burns Choice 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.

This is a shame, Though I have had some small reservations about Burns dog food. For instance the amount of brown rice as against quality meat protein, the fact that dogs may lose too much weight. Though I have to say that can be a positive. Nonetheless I have always believed it to be an ethical and honest company.John Burns, who I had every respect for, Started the Burns food company because of the ingredients in other dog food. Because Maize is harder for dogs to digest that is why it is believed that it can cause intolerance, allergies and larger stools. The majority of Nutritionists and some Vets, now recommend avoiding maize based diets altogether.The fact that this product is 71% Maize, has somewhat surprised me. The rest of the ingredients are excellent
