Manufacturer's product description

" This recipe comprises 80% beef and turkey, all human-grade and sourced exclusively from Great Britain and Ireland. Our delicious meaty chunks are complimented by a blend of minced offals, bone, fruits, vegetables and botanicals.

Kelp is added in precise quantities to meet the iodine requirements essential for proper thyroid function. Wheatgerm oil provides vitamin E and cod liver oil is added to provide vitamin D. Fibre is provided by flaxseed. Cranberry, blueberry and watercress powders are included in small quantities for their antioxidant properties and high levels of vitamin C.

The B-complex vitamins in the beef liver include B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine) and B9 (folic acid). These vitamins help break down carbohydrates, fats and proteins, which provide the body with energy.

This recipe has recently changed slightly. During the transition to the new recipe you may receive either the old or new recipe. "

Our 2 rescues have been fed a 50/50 mix of Able and cold-pressed kibble since they came to us in September 2021 and they're both thriving.

I can't fault Able's food or website - ordering is simple, bowls are licked clean every meal time and DHL's delivery has been excellent.

I saw this food was the highest rated type for my selected criteria and initially looked perfect, however, my dog is allergic to chicken and because most of the chicken free varieties are mixed proteins and contain beef, I feel like the recipe offering is too limited for my dog. Would prefer single protein recipes

I recently changed to Able after many years feeding my Welsh Springers a well known raw food. I had no problem with that food, but the packaging was non-recyclable plastic which sometimes fractured in transport, leaving me to pick out slivers of plastic from the product. The manufacturers weren't helpful! No such problems with Able! I have no idea if my dogs prefer this food - they love ALL food! I however find Able food convenient and it looks good (says this vegetarian owner!)

My dogs love this food. Such a shame their customer service is so poor. They don't answer the phone (answering machine with a message, promising to '..get straight back to you..' well, they don't return calls.
At the moment, their website simply clears the basket, after selecting packs/boxes/subscribe etc. This isn't a new problem for Able. On their Twitter feed, there are complaints about this going back months.
Sadly, it's time to change suppliers; good the food might be but if it's too difficult to buy, then it's time to move on.

I am not sure how much help this will be now, but if you find that the website clears your basket after selecting the ‘pack/bundle’ if you first add an individual pack of food to your basket, then select whatever else you need to order, this way everything stays in and you can delete the packet you don’t want prior to checkout.
I have experienced it on other websites too, when they swore it all works correctly and always on my iPhone. On Mac it was fine so it could be out settings causing this.

My husky loves the Able raw food and it sure does look nutritionally good! Compare it to the dried, bland, highly processed biscuit foods and you can see why she loves it :)
