UK Pet Food Reviews

Range of products

Bakers, owned by Purina, is one of the best selling complete dog foods in the UK, which must mean that it suits a lot of dogs, and yet it could never be listed in the top ten most natural foods on the pet shop shelves, containing as it does un-named cereals, meat derivatives, sugars, vegetable derivatives, colours and flavourings.

They also spend a phenomenal amount on marketing and advertising, which might explain why it is a lot more expensive than it really should be.

Recipes and ingredients

Purina are huge suppliers of Soya, and these recipes, based on unamed cereals and meat/animal derivatives do not have much to recommend them, unless your dog won't eat anything else!

Consider that the "Country Vegetables" in the product title are in fact 4% of the product.

Think of the doggy equivalent of  certain fast food outlets!

Prices and value for money

Although it sells well, this offering from Purina, one of the US biggest feed suppliers has little to offer in terms of ingredients or value for money, there are cheaper alternatives at the 'bargain basement' end of the market!

Expect to pay £22 for a 14kg sack

Great pet food prices and discounts online at GJW Timuss, Zooplus and Pet Planet
