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. "

The Burns Choice range is one of their more recent innovations and, as far as retailers tell us, are not doing so well. They provide a slightly cheaper option for Burns customers whilst still being natural and sticking with most of the core Burns ingredients.

It is (a little bit) less expensive because the relatively expensive brown rice found in the traditional Burns foods has been replaced with cheaper maize (corn to us Brits), but this saving comes at a cost: maize falls a long way short of brown rice in terms of its nutrients and from our experience it is much more likely to cause dietary intolerance than rice.

With a disappointing 16-19% meat (compared with 70% maize!) this food falls a long way short of the standards you would expect at this price.

Conclusion: A middle-of-the-road dog food but still at a premium price.
