I found how to calculate calories for types of dog food, here's this ones:

Dog food calories per 100g ava sensitive skin

43g carbs x3.5 = 150.5

24g protein x3.5 = 84

3g crude fibres

12g crude oils and fats x8.5 = 102

9g crude ash

8g moisture

150.5 + 102 +84 = 340.5 kcal /100g

Hope this helps!!

My dog loved this and it was great for his skin but his poos are huge and so many, it's like it just goes right through him, anyone else experienced this?

I have purchased this product but I've noticed that it contains chicken fat. Why would a white fish recipe contain this a its chicken that causes alot of allergies in dogs

The chicken fat has been hydrolised in this specific recipe.

Rather than the fish flovour get the chicken flavour most of the dogs don't like the fish flavour ,buy on line only pets at home

But avoid the chicken for sensitive and grain free fed dogs! Fish is the best thing for them.

Interested if anyone else has a red colour issue from this food. Moved from the puppy to adult version and red stains have appeared on the dogs face.

Can you tell me if there is red dye in this product?

Sign in to reply
Jackielegs Pipsyspup 6 months ago

There certainly is no dye in this food. Chances are the red staining is an overproduction of poryphin (break down of iron particles) and it often indicative of an allergen.

My dog loves this food and it has been a game changer for her skin, but she is over weight and the vet wants to give us bespoke portions for her can you tell me the kilojoules per gram for this particular product.

I’ve recently bought a new bag of this and my dog has come out in horrendous hives. Has anything changed in the last 4 months since I bought the last bag. The kibble is definitely larger, but anything else?

Have you changed this product. It is a a different size and smell. I just brought a brand new bag at nearly £40 and my dog who normally loves it will not eat it. You have a money bag guarantee can i take this back to store?

Hi can anyone tell me if they are not producing this anymore. Its so hard to get hold off or is there another make that is similar as my dogs are so use to it. Thanks nicki

I’ve spoken to pets at home and they are having manufacturing issues apparently.
I have had to change to James Wellbeloved grain free for my Malamute.
They originally said it would be a couple of weeks before they got new stock of Ava, but that was 4 weeks ago.

Why is this one listed as 3.8 out of 5 in your directory? If you put the ingredients in exactly like you have in your instant review generator this food rates 4.4 out of 5? The same with AVA weight management - rates 4.5 out of 5 on the instant food generator but only 4 in your listings?

All About Dog Food Jenny 5 years ago

Hi Jenny and thanks for getting in touch. I’m afraid the instant review generator can be a bit temperamental if the ingredients list isn’t exactly as it expects. In this case it will be the fact that all of the fish ingredients are grouped together under a single listing rather than being listed in descending weight order. Where there is a disagreement between a published product rating rating and one provided by the Instant review generator, the published one should always take precedence.
