My boy has been on this for over a year. Since Basil's were bought out and moved, and changed the chub size to 400g he refuses to eat it unless he is really hungry, to the point that we have now gone back to tinned food, which he scoffs up. I can only assume that the recipe changed.

It’s feeling a bit like not enough info after the move. 400gms from 500 and price increase makes it feel much less value fir money. However much my dog likes this ( and he does) I’m looking around now

They have moved from Wiltshire and sizes are now 400g instead of 500g. Prices seem to have gone up. No longer £1.66 for 500g. Prices range from £1.39 to £1.99 for 400g.

Quick question on this food. It has no offal and no added vitamins in place of offal. Is it really a complete diet?

Hi Steve. It is marketed as complete but since it does not adhere to FEDIAF's nutritional guidelines for complete foods it does not qualify for our 'nutritionally complete' logo.

I have just weaned my litter of puppies on Basil's and they not only loved it; both our own vet and the vets of their new owners have commented on their amazing condition. Never had a single runny poo either. Both of my adult dogs enjoy it every day - highly recommended.

Basil's really very good. Se have 9 small dogs all but one are rescue dogs , four from bad breeding kennels who came to us in an appalling shape and all l have thrived on Basil's .The boxes of mixed protein are very good idea , and if your dog does not like any particular meat, it can be substituted. Meals are complete, with a recipe which is a plain and straightforward limiting itself to fresh meat, minced bone and vegetable with no long list of all the extra oils, vitamins and herbs other companies go into overkill about. The meat looks fresh and has a proper a mince texture - not the awful paste squishy texture some raw complete meals have and defrosts quickly straight from the freezer in a couple of hours . Very efficient ordering - we have always received ours by next day delivery , with contents still completely frozen.
