Ah yes, that worked, thank you, I hadn't even thought of doing that.
Just tried it with the duck recipe and it scores 88%.

Hi Dottie, how very odd! I copied and pasted the ingredients list for all three varieties into the review generator and each time it came up as 36%. Which I completely did not understand as the ingredients looked good to me.
Not sure if just a glitch on my phone?

Walker and Drake cold pressed.

Quite surprised that this food only scores 36% on the review generator tool. It has no red ingredients so does anyone know why this would be?

Just wanted to let everyone know that Different Dog have just launched a pheasant recipe.
I would also like to add that Butternut Box recently released their long awaited fish recipe a few weeks ago (not sure if this has been covered already as I haven't been on here in a while).

I have been feeding Different Dog since June and my girl loves it. I can't say I've noticed a difference in consistency but my dog is not a fussy eater.

I too fed Butternut Box but felt the company grew too big too quickly for its own good, it is disappointing that, over a year since fish and pork varieties were planned, they still haven't materialised.

I chose to move brands when Butternut were having supply issues and, month on month, the deliveries weren't the flavour varieties ordered, some deliveries just comprising of a single flavour. I like my dog to have as varied a diet as possible and I didn't feel the issue was particularly well handled so moved her to Different Dog.

I saw them at Dog Fest and they were cooking for dogs and very engaged and good to chat with whereas the Butternut stand were just trying to sign people up, no samples or anything and this was at a time when they were supposedly not taking on any more customers due to their supply problems.

Although my dog loved Butternut she seems to prefer DD and although I initially thought it would work out more expensive it actually works out cheaper.

Customer service is excellent and I like how varied their recipes are.

The consistency is much less fatty than the Butternut receipes and the packaging is also much better.

Tribal have just launched a new duck variety especially for small breeds:

Apparently they will soon also be launching 6 flavours of wet food.

Wishing her a speedy recovery-it's fantastic that she's eating.

Another suggestion for cooked fresh food would be Different Dog or Butternut Box. With Butternut you need to sign up for a subscription (though you can get referral discounts for your first box) but with Different Dog you can just buy what you need.
Hope your dog's op goes well.

Both Butternut Box and Different Dog are premade fresh, cooked diets which are nutrionally complete even for young dogs. They are expensive but at least you are assured your dog is getting the correct nutrients. Different Dog offer five protein sources in different recipes (beef, lamb, chicken, turkey and one recipe of white fish and salmon). Butternut Box currently offer beef, lamb, chicken and turkey with fish and pork to follow at some point (fish soon, pork not til next year apparently) though they don't vary the recipes like Different Dog do.

Have just seen that Gentle are launching a new variety containing goat Meat.

Naturavetal from Germany one of the original Cold Pressed manufactures has launched in the UK.

100% Natural without any additives, preservatives, colourants or bulking ingredients. Their range also includes, wet food, meat pots, supplements for BARF plus health and hygiene. 
All but two items in the range are grain free.

May I ask, are you in some way affiliated to Naturavetal?

Thanks for the information, David, I really appreciate you looking into this and I'm glad to see the improvement in Tribal's rating.

Just thought it may be helpful to let you know that Butternut Box are currently not taking new customer orders until July.
The reason for this is due to difficulties they are experiencing with stock levels-at the moment they are unable to provide all of the ordered recipes to meet the demands of current customers so boxes have recently seen some substitutions.

 This blog post explains more:-

This does also mean that there is no sign of the long-awaited fish and pork recipes as yet. They have said they plan to reassess the situation in July when they hope to have stock levels back to where they should be.

They have also confirmed that fish will be the first of the two new recipes to be released.
