Nutriment needs relooking at - pup recommended 250g - not 70p per day at all!

Hi Emma, I've double checked our feeding amounts and they seem to be correct - at least they are the same as those recommended by Nutriment. I have, however, updated the rrp so the cost per day should be up to date now.

As far as I'm concerned Nutriment is miracle food. All my dogs (7 of them) are on it now. The home-bred puppy has been on Nutriment since weaning and has absolutely thrived. At nearly 6 months she's doing far better than her mother was at the equivalent age (mother wasn't fed Nutriment until she was about 2 years old). Of the other dogs, I have one that's allergic to practically everything and had always had trouble keeping food down and often would have bad diarrhoea as a result of her medication. Since transition to Nutriment her digestive system has operated almost perfectly, so clearly it's suitable for at least my dog's sensitive stomach.Obviously being as it's a raw product one needs to be scrupulous about food hygiene: wash hands, utensils, surfaces etc after use and don't store the product in such a way that liquid from it can fall onto anything for human consumption - but that's no different from the advice for any raw foodstuff you would handle, whether it's for animals or humans. Once defrosted it'll last for three days in the fridge - the best storage I've found is an air tight clip-top plastic container - keeps the raw meat smell inside as well as the juices (which aren't actually blood, by the way - they're a mixture of water and a pigmented protein called myoglobin - it's the levels of myoglobin that determine if something is red or white meat or somewhere in between).I've always had a good service from Nutriment themselves - they have a Nutritionist on staff who's available for free advice, and they couldn't have been more helpful when I needed to know more about feeding a pregnant bitch properly as well as the subsequent litter of puppies.I recommend Nutriment to anyone keen on feeding their dogs healthily.This review is totally independent and I have absolutely no connection to Nutriment other than being a customer and using their product.

It's taken nearly 2 yrs to bring Nutriment to court after feeding my puppies contaminated weaning paste and we won. The customer service and concern for the puppies at the time and on going has been non existent. I will never feed nutriment again.

I started my Norfolk Terrier puppy on this when she was 12 weeks old and at first she liked it, ate it up and gained weight steadily. But by 16 weeks she had begun to go off it and simply refused to eat it. I have never had any problems with feeding dogs before, I have always just put food down and they've eaten without fussing, but after a couple of weeks when it was clear she wasn't eating enough, not gaining weight, and wasn't enjoying what she did manage, I changed her to Natural Dog Food Company kibble, which she liked and has eaten happily ever since. I think Nutriment is a really excellent food if your dog likes it, but it does have some practical disadvantages. 10 x 500gram packs occupied a whole shelf of our freezer, which I needed for my own stuff. It would be more difficult to go away with your dog and take packs with you, especially if you went somewhere that freezer space wasn't available, and not everyone relishes the idea of having an opened pack in their fridge as, let's face it, it does look and smell a bit yuckywnd it's not pleasant to handle. I didn't like stirring in the blood which drains out of the mince as it defrosts either. However, as I said, if my pup had liked it I would have continued despite these drawbacks, but as it was I was quite glad she changed her mind and I am able to have her on a suitable kibble, with added vegetables and other extras.

I feed my springer pup this food along with the natural instinct raw. She loves both and is thriving on it. She had lots of bowel problems with kibble but these are now long gone with a raw diet. Highly recommended.

Our Welsh Springer Spaniel puppy absolutely loves this food. Easy to weigh out to ensure correct amounts each meal time, convenient to store and even better, no problems with disposal of poo! It provides peace of mind knowing our puppy is receiving such good quality food. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Brilliant! Thank you
