Laughing Dog Complete food is a little different to the majority of foods, in that it is manufactured using a slower oven bake method rather than a high temperature extrusion process. They claim that this 'retains more of the goodness and taste of the nutritious and delicious natural ingredients, meaning nothing artificial needs to be added.'
Fold Hill Foods, who make the product are based in Lincolnshire and are a family owned business that has been making pet food for over 30 years.
There's a range of foods and treats made with natural ingredients, both with and without cereals, although if your dog has an intolerance just check the individual ingredients, as the meat in the grain free duck is almost half chicken!
Expect to pay £43 for a 15kg sack of their wheat-free foods, which is cheaper/kg than quite a few brands sold in 12kg sacks. The grain free ones are more expensive at around £45/10kg which is more expensive than some.
The star rating is based not just on quality of ingredients, but if the food offers value for money!
