Arden Grange have been producing quality natural dog foods for 15 years and are still going strong. Their range of adult maintenance diets are their longest running products and are especially popular with breeders up and down the country.
In terms of quality, the Arden Grange adult diets score highly. They contain a large proportion of high grade meat (both fresh and grade 'A' meal) and a wide array of healthy natural supplements including brewer's yeast, cranberry extract and pre-biotics MOS and FOS. Glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM are also added to the foods to provide additional joint support.
Although the ingredients list is generally very clear, one area that could be improved is the description of the rice component. 'Whole Grain Rice' is listed in almost all Arden Grange dry foods, but on the Arden Grange website it says "Arden Grange pet foods contain whole grain white rice". 'Whole grain white rice' is a contradiction in terms - whole grains are generally defined as retaining 100% of the original kernel - all of the nutritious bran, germ, and endosperm while all three layers are removed in the creation of white rice. After 10 years in dog food, I had always thought that Arden Grange contained whole grain, brown rice and I'm sure I'm not the only one. To enable users to make a better comparison between products, I have changed the listing to white rice.
LIke all Arden Grange foods, the Adult range is completely natural and hypoallergenic (free from all common allergy causing ingredients like wheat, soya and dairy). They are naturally preserved and are free from artificial colours and flavours.
With a comparatively low cost per bag and below average suggested feeding amounts, Arden Grange is also very economical to feed.
Conclusion: Arden Grange adult foods are great foods at a great price, but the choice of grains could be better.
