My dog had started to refuse his dry foods no matter which it was so I decided to go with this mince but cooked as my dog launches kisses to everyone and so safer for me. He loves it and apart from the chicken 1 they are still close to the same weight after cooking. It is quite pricey because delivery is high and it always comes in a box twice the size it needs. But the reality is my dog is happy healthy and the mince is very good quality. I think the lamb sells great while cooking too.

I changed to Poppies Picnic from a higher rated brand on this website, as the previous food was causing constipation & some slimey yellow stools. There were times where my dog would refuse to eat a particular batch, he would sniff & not eat. Poppies picnic has sorted these issues out, a bit more veg has helped to soften my Border Collies stools & they look normal again & he will eat every batch. The added bonus is the biodegradable trays & you can send back the polystyrene. With the previous brand, I put so many trays in the recycling, the packaging seemed unnecessary. My cat also enjoys Poppies Picnic cat meatballs, he is old and has only 2 teeth (he is a rescue cat) & he struggled to eat the previous brands meat as it was the same texture as the dog meat. We also find Poppies Picnic easier to identify the cat from the dog meat which was a challenge with the previous brand. Poppies Picnic works out more expensive than the previous brand but overall the benefits are worth it for our furry family members

Our girl was a fantastic eater before her season. Overnight she totally changed, and since mid-January, her eating has been a source of stress for us all.We have since tried two alternative foods but both have fillers (lentils for one, quinoa for another) which was affecting her digestion. Plus, it was getting expensive and time consuming having to buy a month's worth of food in one go, and then transition her between foods. And most importantly, she was miserable.I think we all started to dread meal times a bit, and they would loom over our day. It was heart-breaking seeing her pushing food away with her nose, while her stomach was rumbling. I was in tears more times than I care to admit!We can't feed raw for a few reasons, but I know how incredible it is and it's always the highest rated for nutrition. I was so thrilled to see that the Mighty Mince range could be cooked. So I knew our girl would have all the benefits of raw but it would be cooked by us, meaning it was nutritious and fresh every time. So I was excited, but knowing how difficult feeding had got, I didn't want to get my hopes up too much.To say it's been a revolution is an understatement! Our only problem now is how excited she gets while we let it cool slightly before putting it down for her. We've had to dust off the slow feeder that's not been seen since January! We can now put her food down and she'll be dancing next to her mat waiting and will clear the plate.Finding the Mighty Mince products from Poppy's Picnic has been a dream for us, and I can't rave about it enough. If you've been put off raw food but want all the goodness, then this is well worth checking out!
