UK Pet Food Reviews
Vitalin dog food

Range of products

The 1950s saw Arthur Mills, founder of Kennel Nutrition Ltd, produce Vitalin Original, the first product in the Vitalin range. The name 'Vitalin' coming from 'Vital in' animal nutrition. The success was immediate, Original being the first commercially produced complete dry dog food in the UK.

'Original' muesli is still available at around £13/15kg but for the purposes of this review we're looking at the better quality foods which Vitalin sell these days, and which fit under the banner of 'natural'

Recipes and ingredients

The products at the top end of the Vitalin range are really excellent, and easily fit into the 'natural' sector of the market, and unlike some brands these are not overpriced. They are based on a single meat source, easily digested cereals and naturally preserved.

Prices and value for money

Expect to pay £30 for a 12kg sack of natural food, which is pretty good value. Their muesli food, at the other end of the market is also quite cheap at £13/15kg
