The first ingredient now is potato @30% then chicken@ 26%, but I personally still like this food. I feed it to my lurcher and my greyhound (when he's not being too fussy, poor old man of 14yrs 2mths, even if I have to add beef mince or something else very tasty). Ive even managed to get the small independent rescue where I work to feed it to some of our dogs there.
it actually comes in 12kg bags not 15kg as the directory states, and the cheapest websites I have found are "feedem", "molevalleyfarmers", "gjwtitmuss" normal prices around £26/£27 per bag but they often have offers on so sometimes it works out to only £2 per kilo. All in all a good price for what is essentially a grain free food- without the added price tag that tends to go with it!!!

Also forgot to add it has very high levels of Glucosamine (340mg/kg), MSM (340mg/kg) and Chondroitin (240mg/kg) compared to other brands which often only have half that amount, some even less.

When I put the ingredients in your instant score generator this product gets 3.5 which is correct?

Hi Kedecama and thanks for your question. Although the Review Generator is great for approximate ratings, it is not entirely perfect. Minor changes in the structure or terminology of the ingredients list can throw up discrepancies. Of course, where we provide a rating like the one above it has been thoroughly checked so should overrule any Review Generator results.
