UK Pet Food Reviews
Autarky dog food

Range of products

The HiLife brand of dog and cat foods is owned by family-run Town & Country Petfoods, based in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire. HiLife is one of the UK’s most popular petfood ranges and was established in 1974, although it seems to have achieved this without a lot of high-profile advertising, so they must be doing something right.

HILife produce a range of moist and semi-moist foods. One thing HiLife have is a moist mince food which is very useful if you have a dog which is struggling with dried kibble or has teeth problems.

Ingredient-wise it's maybe not up there with the best of the bunch if you're looking for high digestibility (you'll be picking up more poo than you would by feeding a high quality natural food) but it's a lot better than some of the highly advertised brands which conceal economy ingredients, so if a semi-moist food is a compromise that suits your dog then maybe this is the one for you.

Recipes and ingredients

This is not a premium natural food, it is a basic recipe based upon meat meal, soya and wheat, so may not suit dogs with some sensitivities to ingredients. However, the amount of meat included does seem higher than some basic foods.

Prices and value for money

Expect to pay around £14.50 for a 6kg box
