Thank you for letting us know about this. I had not heard of it.  In view of the fact that it is described as semi moist it would be interesting to know how it is processed/manufactured. 

I have calculated the dry weight protein and fat:
Protein 24.39%
Fat 15.85%

If someone could verify that I would be grateful.

At 60/40 I would imagine that this food is  appropriate for non working, pet dogs so will be a useful adjunct to the company's range.  However, the fat content may be a little high for some dogs who have a tendency to easily gain weight.  The recipe looks good, although at £58 for 12kg it may be a tad expensive for some.  It all depends on the RDA and how far the product goes.  I will be interested to hear how you get on with it.

Thanks for the information Anita. I would be interested to know what the manufacturing process is too.

It is still an extruded product, using a humectant to hold some moisture content in the food. It isn't suitable for puppies under 16 weeks but is suitable for older puppies and adults.

There is no reason for excess weight gain provided portion sizes are appropriate for the individual dog.

The feeding amount is 10-15% more than the 80/20 range

The food was developed as easy for dogs that struggle to eat the harder kibble (poor teeth or old age) and also to help as a transition food (or permanent food) for those that are more sensitive to the higher meat content varieties.

It is almost, but not quite, a single protein food, being based on duck with a little the price reflects the high use of duck.

Well the bag arrived today and all three dogs devoured the semi moist food. Instead of eating the home cooked (or Lily's Kitchen) first and eating the kibble (Orijen) after, they ate it altogether.
I messaged David today on Facebook and asked if their was any added salt and sugar, he said no, only what is naturally found in the ingredients. I also asked if it was an extruded product and David said that the production process was similar.
I've added another pic :)

Maybe it is the smell or perhaps the fact that it is something new that attracted them.  Dogs often like a change.  Thank you for the picture - it does look different to ordinary kibble. I assume that it is first extruded then the humectant added afterwards to make the biscuit moist.  I had to look 'humectant' up - link.  According to the article a humectant is a hygroscopic substance used to keep things moist.

Hi Dottie
Haha I had to look up 'humectant' too. I'm assuming that is the  glycerine. I'm a long term dog owner and I know they appreciate a change, that is why I do my home cooked wet food varying my recipe each time. I love a roast dinner but eating it everyday would be tedious :/
My Poppy the Yorkie is loving it, the other 2 are eating it too but they were fine with kibble.
I had a couple of empty Orijen bags in cupboard and I have transferred the semi-moist into these as they have a resealable top, I thought that might be better for keeping the food moist.

Yes, the humectant is glycerin, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It's is added to the food to lock in some moisture and keep the food "squidgy". In human food things like honey or glucose syrup are also used.

There is a 12 month shelf life from manufacture, and the usual suggestions of cool dry place out of direct sunlight apply. Just rolling down the top of the bag should be enough.

I'm trying to keep my replies brief as I am aware of the rules concerning manufacturers posting on the forums.

Thank you for the more detailed reply. As you say, it is important to get the quantity right so as ever, I advise pet owners to weigh the food, at least initially until they are used to the correct amount. Mugs, cups and beakers from other pet food companies will not suffice, especially with a food that might be heavier than ordinary kibble.
