Manufacturer's product description

" Many dry dog foods use grains as their primary source of protein. Diets that contain high levels of grain can be hard for dogs to digest and convert into energy. This could stress the liver and kidneys and can lead to the development of sensitivities and allergies….. That's why Applaws is grain and cereal free! "

Applaws produce a dry kibble for seniors too. I would really like to see that included here. There are less options for seniors and this looks to be one that is going to get a good result if it was reviewed.

A good quality animal protein food is great for all ages and doesn't need to be split for seniors, lower quality foods do provide a senior option only because their poor quality range takes it toll on the kidneys and liver of older dogs. :-) Hope your dogs enjoys x

I fed my senior GSD's Applaws Senior and was well accepted. Would recommend. Now feed the Adult Large for my current Shep.

One of my dogs is really fussy but she loves Applaws even though the recommended price is around £55 per bag - you can always seem to get 2 bags for £70 online which makes it even better :)

PETS AT HOME store in Durham no longer store Applaws. Shame on Pets at Home, one of the very best independent manufacturers let down. No doubt Pets at Home prefer to store vast quantities of rubbish made by large and multinational companies.

They do still sell it online though, so not really the end of the world is it? ;)

Our dog, Amber despite being quite fussy loves Applaws and licks her bowl clean. I like the fact that it seems healthy for her, although I think some variety in flavours would be better. Overall a great food that I would recommend to other dog owners.

I have found Applaws to be extremely good for my girl, a 6 year old Siberian Husky cross Alaskan Malamute/GSD. I've used it almost from launch (I was interested in the high meat content, and the fact it is grain- and cereal-free) and found it has settled her tummy very well - she used to have occasional bouts of diarrhea, but not since she's been eating the Applaws. She loves it so much, I can use the pieces of kibble as a treat/reward! Highly recommended!
