Smudge’s Story – Part Two – “Tasty Treats and a Balanced Diet”

With a huge selection to choose from, what would a newly adopted rescue dog eat? In part two of Smudge’s Story we look at a couple of options available from Whilton Locks Garden Village.
Rugby Paw Prints had said that Smudge was being fed on Burns dry dog food. Bruno’s Pet Shop, at Whilton Locks Garden Village, stock Burns. Here are benefits:

The original Burns recipe
Hypo-allergenic & formulated without wheat gluten
No added wheat, beef or dairy
Suitable for dogs with sensitive skin
Suitable for dogs with sensitive digestion
Highly Digestible so less to clear up

Quality Ingredients
Contains all the nutrients a dog needs and avoids those which cause the build-up of toxic waste in the system.

Burns Original is hypo-allergenic, so it is suitable for sensitive dogs. It is formulated without ingredients such as wheat, soya, dairy, artificial colourings and artificial preservatives which are known to cause food intolerances.

Lower Feeding Costs
Containing only the finest quality ingredients Burns Original is highly digestible therefore feeding amounts are lower, meaning that daily feeding costs are significantly lower than those of other premium brands. And there’s less poo to clean up!

In addition we suggested. Symply. Symply is wholesome, perfectly balanced, natural and above all delicious!

Here are the Simply facts:
100% natural, wholesome ingredients for a healthier, happier pet.
Symply recipes contain only the finest natural ingredients for the balanced and complete diet he needs to stay in top condition. All Symply products are free of artificial colourings, flavourings and preservatives. Formulated with wholesome ingredients and natural antioxidants rich in vitamins to enhance the immune system.

Great nutrition for a lower cost – great for your pocket
Each mouthful of Symply contains more goodness than other inferior brands, so you need to feed less therefore pay less. Using better quality, more digestible ingredients, Symply daily feeding amounts are lower than inferior, less digestible brands. Your daily feeding costs will be lower than inferior ingredient “cheaper” brands as they require increased daily feeding amounts to maintain your dog’s health.

Healthy skin and a shiny coat
High in omega 6 & 3 helps maintain a healthy skin and a shiny coat. Also contains optimal levels of zinc which helps with the repair of skin.

High meat content for a strong muscle growth
The high meat content provides the protein your dog needs for a healthy body and strong muscles.

The Symply dog range contains over 26% real dried meat. By using “dried” meat our range has more meat content than the equivalent “fresh” meat. “Fresh” simply means that it’s weighed in its wet form but this water is lost during processing and so there is a lot less meat in the final product.

Highly digestible ingredients for less stool volume – less clean up!
Symply’s high quality ingredients are chosen for their easy digestibility resulting in less to clear up which is good news for dog owners! Symply is nutritionally denser than lesser quality feeds.

With lower feeding amounts required and high digestibility, compared to inferior brands, you will notice less dog’s “poop” volume.

A great taste
With high meat content, the Symply pet food range is both delicious and nutritious to satisfy even the fussiest eater. Using a combination of high meat content and wholesome natural ingredients, Symply has the taste your dog will absolutely love, without the use of artificial flavourings! Our dry crunchy kibble can also be helpful in keeping teeth cleaner by scraping against the teeth. (Although we still recommend regular dental care!).

Easier on the stomach so fewer stomach upsets
When feeding Symply you can be assured of the highest quality ingredients which are gentle on the stomach and easily digested. This lowers the chances of digestive upsets. Highly digestible ingredients increases your dog’s ability to absorb goodness from the food.

Free of artificial additives for a healthier choice
All Symply products are free of artificial colourings, flavourings and preservatives. Symply products are preserved with mixed tocopherols, a blend of vitamin E which gives our food its long shelf life.

Both packs were 2kg with John Burns being £9.50 and Symply £11.99. We suggested to continue with Burns (as this is what Smudge was used to) with perhaps an introduction to Symply later.

Anything Else?
A fresh water bowl and food bowl were purchased – The silver stainless steel bowl (£6.99) has a non-slip rubber base and the blue plastic bowl (£1.25) is ideal for keeping clean straight after meal times.
