Diet Information


The ancesters of today's domesticated dogs would have eaten the whole of their prey (including bones, organs and stomach contents). This provided them with the correct balance of nutrients which is so important for optimum health. Today, there is a close equivalent called natural feeding.  This is cost effective both in terms of "basic cost" and also "added grooming and vet costs" which can occur from preventable illness due to poor diet and more importantly gives your dog balanced nutrition for a long and happy life with you !
