Burns pet nutrition
Regardless of variety, all burns dog food recipes contain essential fatty acids from sunflower oil, chicken oil or fish oil, seaweed provides an organic source of minerals and are free from wheat, dairy, soya, beef, genetically modified ingredients, battery farmed meat, animal derivatives, artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or hidden fillers used by many cheap dog food brands to add bulk to pet food at the expense of quality, that offer little or any nutritional value, just to increase profit.
All the burns dog food varieties, excluding the Puppy, Canine Extra or High Energy Lamb recipes are low in fat and protein, but high in complex carbohydrates such as brown rice and oats. Premium dog food's like burns all use meat or fish meal to create various dog food recipes, which is simply meat or fish with all the water removed, to help those with dietary intolerances or sensitivities to certain sources of protein. Why not try burns range of vat free dog foods, sold as alert recipes for working dogs, that are almost identical to the normal burns chicken and brown rice or lamb and brown rice recipes that have the same protein levels, but are cheaper?
The main protein sources used to create the range of burns dog food's are Chicken and Rice, Lamb and Rice, Fish and Rice, Pork and Potato, Vension and Duck and Rice that are all nutritious and contain highly digestible forms of protein. Any ingredient can cause a food intolerance, but protein sources such as beef, milk or carbohydrates like wheat are often problematic for many dogs, although chemical additives like colourings or artificial preservers can also cause adverse food reactions, that's why these ingredients are not included in any burns dog food recipes!
Adverse reactions by dogs to pet food ingredients, unfortunately is very common and seems to be increasing, consequently all burns recipes are fixed, to minimise the risk of your dog being exposed to ingredients that may cause a food intolerance, even if cheaper ingredients become available, which is important for owners with dogs with special dietary requirements, as many health problems are caused by undiagnosed intolerances to ingredients.
Like all premium dog foods, each burns variety contains only a single source of meat or fish protein, for instance chicken, lamb, fish or duck to allow owners to avoid certain forms of protein, they know from experience can cause digestive disorders or skin complaints such as itchy, flaky skin, loose digestion or flatulence. Food related sensitivities are usually not instant, but develop over time, for example a hypersensitivity to beef or diary ingredients used in many supermarket dog food brands is quite common!
There are two main types of dietary sensitivity, food allergy where your dog's immune system reacts to an ingredient in the dog food, usually in response to a particular form of protein, that's why burns has a variety of flavours to choose from as any ingredient that causes a reaction will have be excluded from your dog's diet for life and food intolerance where a particular ingredient does not cause an allergic reaction, but can't be tolerated often caused by cheap ingredients, fillers or derivatives that are not used in hypoallergenic or holistic dog food brands like burns, arden grange or wafcol.
Unlike many foods, burns can replace most costly veterinary and prescription diets saving you lots of money, that are sold in many cases exclusively through veterinary practices, even though there are no legal restrictions on the sale of prescription dog foods like hills or royal canin, for instance specialist veterinary diets for food related sensitivities, digestion problems and even diabetic diets can be substituted, for instance Burns High Oats is suitable for overweight and diabetic dogs that is hypoallergenic, high in natural fibre and formulated with chicken from non battery hens, just contact burns dog food and speak to a nutritional advisor on: 0800 083 6696

Burns was developed by Johns Burns a veterinary surgeon, that realised many commercial pet foods contained poor ingredients, additives and undesirable fillers, that were not suitable for treating food related allergies or sensitivities, so he suggested to owners they make their own dog food using the following basic ingredients vegetables, brown rice, chicken, lamb or fish that could be purchased easily from their local supermarket.
But acknowledged that for most owners it was not practical and perhaps daunting, consequently john burns decided to develop a range of holistic dog foods using the same homemade principles he recommended to owners, that were also suitable alternatives to many prescription diets commercial produced to treat various health problems and food sensitivities.
Each burns dog food regardless of flavour or variety has been formulated to naturally boost the immune system, promote a healthy skin and glossy coat, help protect the digestive tract, and support your dog's or puppy's skeletal, respiratory and nervous systems to keep them fit and active. Within the burns pet food range you will find a hypoallergenic dog food suitable for each stage of your dog's or puppy's life, just click on the product descriptions for more details!
