Canagan Grain Free natural dog food
is made in the UK, and created to be "Biologically Appropriate"
Traditionally natural dog foods and natural puppy foods have sacrificed nutritional value by using cheaper, less nutritionally accessible ingredients. The nutritionists at Canagan have looked carefully at the dietary needs of dogs to produce a natural food which more closely mimics your dog's natural ancestral diet with the correct ratio of meat protein and fat to carbohydrate and a much higher meat content than most.
Why go grain free?
Dogs are highly adapted to eat meat. Like all carnivores, they find it more difficult to digest grains. This is highlighted because they don't have the enzyme called amylase in their saliva, which helps to break down these starchy carbohydrates. Canagan have eliminated all the grain from their recipes to create a natural dog food that is high in meat and which matches as closely as possible their natural food. Grains such as corn, wheat and barley have been linked with canine allergies, with symptoms ranging from upset stomach to itchy flaky coat. Even if your dog has no allergies, these grains are significantly less digestible and have limited nutritional value when compared to meat, yet, they are present in the majority of pet foods.
Canagan natural dog food includes options specially formulated for the smaller dog using smaller kibble.
Canagan is natural grain free dog food which you can trust.
Symply natural dog food
is again made in the UK, and Symply believe in "keeping stuff natural."
Symply natural dog food believe there is no necessity in adding artificial additives to dog foods when there are natural, healthier alternatives.
Although Symply always try to source every ingredient from within Great Britain, there are a few, such as rice, which are not available in the UK due to, in this case, climate issues. These ingredients are sourced from abroad but the quality expected for these are just as high as with any other ingredient from Great Britain.
By sourcing the best sustainable ingredients from the UK, Symply can be sure of the origin of the ingredients and support for UK industries, whilst having the added benefit of lowering the carbon footprint.
These delicious natural dog foods are made without artificial flavourings, and use real meat and natural ingredients.
Much healthier, we think.
The range also includes natural dog food for smaller breeds, and of course a natural puppy food.
