Having been a customer of Millies Wolfheart for some time - I was shocked to find my most recent order of their Forager dog food riddled with maggots - more shocking still was the response I received from them when I requested a replacement for the contaminated food bags. They refused to replace and showed absolutely no concern for my dog who had eaten some of this contaminated food and had now been forced to eat an alternative brand whilst the issues was sorted, causing stomach upset! Definitely a company to avoid!

After disastrous results with eden and my dogs looking horrendous within only 1 week on it. I took the plunge and switched both my border terriers onto Millie's wolfheart 60/40 ranger mix. I cannot rate this food highly enough, my dogs look fabulous on it and the vets always comment on how good they look (the once a year they see them for boosters). I like the fact they have a choice to as not all dogs do well on an 80/20 ratio. Both dogs no longer eat every other dogs poo which they did on eden.

I did the reverse - switched from Millies to Eden, and my two Huskies are glowing.
But yes - its probably not for vegetarians.If you just switched to Wolfheart ... how do the vets "always comment on how good they look" (the once a year they see them)?

Please clarify what's the correct rating ? Says 5.0 out of 5 but there are only 4 user rating stars and when you click on the stars it says that 14 ppl rated as Excellent, 3 ppl rated as Good, 4 ppl rated as Average and 3 as Awful, so if this is correct then it can't be 5.0 out of 5. This is very misleading...

Am I alone in wishing that manufacturers did small samples of their foods? Our bichepoo has recently begun to constantly scratch and nibble at himself and I have been advised that it could be an allergy to his food ( Hills Science Plan, chicken). I would like to find a cereal free food that helps alleviate his itching but don't want to spend and then waste lots of money on a large bag which is then abandoned after a few days in order to try another brand.

David, can you help me I am confused , you list 3 out of 14 of Millies Wolfheart foods I have been searching for a chicken free food its driven me mad I found them via here thank goodness for your site and was pleased to see they did lots of recipes I find the 80/20 far too rich for my BC and not enough energy. Why do you cover only 3 and place them as variety when they are all completely different ? and your prices are all wrong and ingredients too? Would you consider updating your information if I wasnt struggling to find something chicken and grains free I would have over looked them.. about to try their ranger mix. some of their recipes are actually 5* but you dont reflect this which is a shame as you do promote the 5* a lot, I think perhaps your too busy as theres so much to keep on top of which is understandable but would you add it to your list?. For some of us it would be very helpful if you could update your info, your calculator is fab but had to copy paste 11 to see what your rating were was a pain, will review our thoughts on ranger mix once it arrives and a few weeks in fingers and paws crossed here sorry to waffle keep up great work!

Our border collie pup came to us on a well known brand that I knew wasn't the best quality. Done some shopping around and decided on millies. Best decision we made, he is now one, good condition shiny coat and firm poos. He wolves down all his meals and we can switch between flavours for variety with no nasty side effects. Fab customer service, we live in scotland delivery always prompt and the one hour time slot saves you waiting about all day

Total Millies convert after trying Eden and Cannagan. One of mine is chicken intolerant so limited choice loose stools to the point of embarrassment when taking them out on Eden even after a three week introduction then they went completely off it anyway. Postage on top really pushed the price up as well. Tried Cannagan as i could buy this locally but limited to one flavour which they went off quickly quite expensive again and resented paying for the posh packaging. Tried Millies Salmon and veg but enthusiasm again dwindled towards the end of the bag-fussy pair mine. However, just ordered samples of Country and the new Obedience mix and they love both so they now have a wide choice. Both eat less than the recommended amount and with postage included it works out a very cheap high quality food. I have no problem with the potato content, both mine love veggies and will always eat it first if I add some. I like the herb mix included in Millies and the variety. They also do a very useful guide to energy levels which helps with selecting the appropriate mix of carbs and proteins. Some good info on the site as well.

That being said im sure eden suits other dogs,both products are very good but my dog suits millies. So please dont try and tell us or educate us on what you thinks best for our dogs i can read and make my own decisions on what i thinks best for my poochregards john

Can't praise Millies enough! My Husky was previously on Eden but continually had loose stools, I followed their advice of stating you don't feed as much as normal dog food because of it's pure content but my boy was on the minimum amount for his weight to feed as said by their feeding guidelines and still it continued. I persevered with it as they also said that it was a detox process of getting all the bad out of him, didn't know how much bad could of been in him like as I started feeding Eden at 10 weeks but I humoured it and carried on, they also said it may take some time to adjust he's now 10 months old and at 9 months he was still the same, so I switched to Millies at about 9 months of his age and I noticed a difference within days!! no more loose stools :-) which means I can now clean the back garden without a hose after he's been out and like I say he's 10 months now and he's doing brilliant on it, what's more noticeable is how shiny and soft his coat is now. So thank you Millies I can't recommend you enough.

WARNING: even though its grain free this food is VERY poor in comparison to Acana Regionals or Orijen, this food has huge amount of FILLER in potatoes 25%. Orijen has no potato in whatsoever and Acana very tiny amounts!!!! these 2 foods are by far the best on the market but are priced accordingly. I'd personally say Millies is not as good as TOTW also, there is also Eden in the UK which could be worth a try but many dogs don't tolerate it. People say with Eden its the high protein but thats not true as many including my dogs thrive on Orijen with high protein , maybe its the fish content? my dogs got very windy/smelly an runny poops on Eden so never worked for us. This site is great but anyone reading please take into account the amount of potato 'filler' in foods that are grain free!

After trying various dog foods for my Border collies, I've found that potatoes/sweet potatoes are the culprit for runny poo (for my dogs. Can't speak for anyone elses). It's just another cheap filler replacing rice/cereals/grains. I've now been feeding Orijen for a couple of years and find my dogs have more energy, poo is so perfect you could pick it up with sugar tongs!!! Good coats, lots of vitality.

It's a great food in my opinion. I used to feed my dog with mix of orijen regional red and lukullus. Wanted to find something more local and millie's wolfheart is a perfect answer. I feed my dog with countriside mix and so far all great, can't recommend enough (funny thing when neighbor's cat steals his food)

I'm now a Millies Wolfheart convert after trying several other high quality foods. The review on here doesn't go into the different mixes offered by Millies, there's different meat/fish/vegetable ratios available so if you find 80/20 mixes too rich for your dog (as I did) there's plenty of other options to try. I initially bought a small bag of the Riverside mix (60/40) and can't praise it enough! My Border Collie was suffering from terrible runs whilst on 80/20 mixes from other brands, but after just one day on MIllies his poop had firmed up nicely, he was pooing less and no more atrocious farts! He's been on the Riverside mix for almost a week now and is so much happier. Poops are firm and don't smell and the shine is returning to his coat. I've placed another order with Millies for the Farmers mix (another 60/40) and also some of their training treats and sausages. Their service is excellent, with orders being processed and dispatched very quickly. I haven't spoken to anyone at Millies but have joined their Facebook group and the owner is always quick to respond to any questions and seems very helpful.

Which Dog Food, can you clarify which product this analysis is for? Judging by the Millies Wolfheart website, the mixes Hunter/Countryside/Riverside have different contents & ratios of ingredients? Thanks.

Keith Elliott 7 years ago

We tried Eden then Millie's for our Dalmatian. Runny poo with Eden, perfect with Millie single protein salmon. We reckon that the multiple protein is tougher on sensitive guts plus the higher protein in Eden is tougher for a Dalmatian as they don't have uricase so lower purine content is better. Local retired (horse) vet recommends single protein food for dogs...I dunno, but maybe he more likely to know than me. We will keep with Millie till they get too big a company and ruin the product by getting greedy ...so let's hope that never happens!

Initially my 60kg rottie was on royal canin, however after doing some thorough research I found out that royal canin is in fact rated poorly. I then tried Eden after seeing the reviews from which dog, although the reviews on this food are great, for some reason my dog did not sit well with it. Constantly getting the runs, lost weight, was in a much worse condition then when he was on royal canin. After Eden I tried Millies Wofheart countryside mix and instantly his stools were solid. He's slowly putting on a bit of weight again, I don't know how long it will be till he is 60kg again. I am feeding him 520grams a day, I will try and increase it slightly.

I recommend Eden to everyone who will listen at my dog club, my 3 large breeds have done so well on it skin conditions cleared up, shiny coats, everyone remarks on it. We have some 25 dogs who have gone over with no problems apart from the ones who were fed Bakers, Beta or Wagg-the Arden grange converts or raw fed had no issues, I think that speaks for itself. have my cats on it too. less shedding which as a GSd owners is worth it for that alone. had a long time persuading a husky breeder to try it-she swore by bakers but saw the light last month, has weaned her litter of pups on it-and they are so good the vet has bought one....so the vet that tried to flog us Hills and Royal canin will leave with a puppy pack of Eden-I love karma......

I can tell you Millies is a fantastic food, my pup had constant diarrhoea and was constantly starving and losing weight on another food , as soon as i switched her to milies her tummy problems were cured within 24 hours and she is in the best shape, she is pure muscle. My vet always comments on how he hasn't seen a fitter dog.Hope this helps,

Millies suits my dogs very well. They are all healthy and enjoy eating it.
There is plenty of room in this country for more than one company to provide grain free food: Millies, Simpsons, Eden and others. Pick one, and give it a go making sure that you transfer from whatever you are feeding your dog at the moment VERY GRADUALLY.
If it does not suit your dog, don't force it. 6 months is far too long to be attempting to get a dog used to a new food. Go back to your original food for a while, then slowly try to change to another brand. You will find a recipe which your dog does well on - but it can take a bit of patience to find the right one sometimes.

Well it works out at 3 pounds & 33 pence (approx) per kg which is the same as Eden but of a lower grade meaning you will need to feed more of Millies so it still falls a good deal short of the Eden benchmark but its still a quality product in its own right none the less.

Well I'm sorry Superdog if I'm no allowed to voice my opinion. So explain to me how a product lower in protein requires less than one that of a product that
is higher in protein, with all due respect and from a biological point
of view that makes no sense whatsoever, I'm afraid my info is very much
"straight" thank you very much as even raw meat can have a protein content of
approx 45% to 50% when you extract the water content which is perfectly
in line with the biological requirement of any carnivore or is that too
high for you as well because if it is you know very little about the
nutritional requirement of Candis?

I got thrown off your facebook group mate for trying to mention stuff/advice whys that?

Ray Birch Gavin 8 years ago

I put my 6 month old border collie/Samoyed cross on Eden about a month ago and almost from the start as Gavin mentions her poos became incredibly runny often diarrhoea like. I put a comment on the whichdogfood forum to that effect, and was subsequently contacted by Paul who I understand is one of Edens directors. He certainly seems to know his stuff and put forward a decent argument in support of trying to stay with the food, saying that it could take as long as 6 months for a dog to acclimatise to it. But what do you do when your dog has gone off eating it I said to him? His suggestion was to try mixing it with a different kibble I was feeding her on before swapping to Eden. So that's what I've decided to try. At least until the bag of Eden is finished. I'm mixing it 50/50 with some cheaper lamb and rice food which she seemed to be doing fine on before changing over to Eden. Almost immediately her poos have become much more normal in consistency, and her appetite has returned. Just to note that soon after starting the Eden, she had a greenish discharge from one of her eyes so I took her to my vet. Whilst there I mentioned the problem with her runny stools and he gave me some tablets for gastro enteritis, and Pro Flora powder to add to her food. Needless to say after there was no improvement after the course of tablets, the only thing I could put it down to was the Eden. I'm left wondering why if this 5 star rated food with its 80/20 makeup is so fantastic, why does it have this effect on so many dogs? I agree with what Paul (the Eden rep) had to say regarding the dogs are carnivores and so should be on a high meat diet, but surely not if it's going to give them upset tummies?

Ray Birch Carol 8 years ago

Hi Carol. I'm keeping an open mind about the merits of Eden. I'm trying what Paul suggested and feeding my dog on 50% Eden 50% Lamb and Rice. The difference in the consistency of her stools was almost immediate and they are now much more solid as opposed to the almost diarrhoea like stuff she was producing when she was on the pure Eden. I understand the ethics of how a high meat food ought to be the right choice for an animal which is essentially carnivorous, but I've read so many comments in forums from people who experienced similar problems. I'm not sure I buy this business that it can take 6 months for a dog to acclimatise to it. What else is someone who's determined to retain a customers business going to say? The jury is still very much out. There must be some reason why my dog went off eating Eden, and I can only feel that it was because she was fed up with the way it was playing havoc with her digestion. Paul might be a nutritionist, but I think the one thing Eden is really lacking in is fibre. Have you considered doing further experiments with the formula?

Paul its not the fibre, many people feed raw without veg just 80% meat, 10% bone 10%offal. I think its how its processed giving unnatural levels of proteins, with raw diets they have bone that firms them up

eden gave my dogs the ability to s**t through the eye of a needle. Its superior to every other food in that one aspect only :-)

Eden does not set the benchmark for grain free , Orijen does, maybe here in England with British only food Eden does, it is hit and miss by the sounds, I really wanted it to work for me but it doesnt . Millies loaded with cheap potato filler at around 25% Eden is less than half of that, maybe its the amount of fish in Eden some can't tollerate

I have recently changed my dogs on to Millies Wolfheart Countryside Mix and so far I'm absolutely delighted with the results and even my 12 year old Pointer seems to have a spring in her step again! I've always struggled to get weight on my two younger Pointers (age 3), as they are so active, but I actually think that they are finally beginning to put on some weight. Stools are firm and reduced in amount too, which is a big plus. Great food that I highly recommend with excellent customer service as well and all three of my dogs love it.

Super food, after trial and error we've finally got our perfect food we swap successfully between salmon and veg and lamb,duck with rabbit variety with no side effects poop wise! Great flavour [I have had a taste its really good] my dogs are healthy and happy no fussy eaters with Millies and its wolfed down. Family run business shows with great customer service and support one of the top rated UK dog food companies from the Yorkshire Dales I can not rate them enough 5 stars from us! Thanks Millies my dogs adore your food Thanks for the review some good stuff coming along finally for dogs

salmon can be testing for dogs, never tried millies salmon mix as this works perfect, best grain free produced from the Uk. tried many, orijen, eden etc, only feed this and taste of the wild now
