A Specialist Dog Food That’s Worth its Weight in Gold
Award-winning pet food company Burns Pet Nutrition has scooped first prize at the Your Dog Magazine Awards for their tasty and healthy Weight Control range, with a highly commended in a separate category for their Hand Cooked Wet Food range.
Winning best specialist food, the Weight Control range has been specially formulated with wholegrain oats, peas, seaweed and yummy chicken. This popular hypoallergenic food is high in fibre, low in calories and provides a steady release of energy to help dogs feel fuller for longer.
Burns is on a mission to end the current obesity crisis many veterinary professionals have seen increase over the last few years. According to PDSA, the well-respected UK veterinary charity, it is believed that over half of all pets in the UK are overweight or obese. In a survey of veterinary professionals, most UK vets identified obesity as one of the top five welfare issues of the UK dog population.
It’s believed to be an issue that has grown significantly over the last two years, but staggeringly, only 26% of UK dog owners can identify a possible weight issue with their pets. This means that the growing size of our pets is setting a new, worrying norm for pet waistlines, and one that’s making it impossible to identify what a healthy weight actually looks like.
The weight control range, and all of the award-winning food from Burns, was created by Veterinary Surgeon John Burns back in the early 90s, and since then, Burns has released a variety of healthy and hypoallergenic pet food ranges, all using a single source of high-quality protein, and hand-selected ingredients that are as healthy, wholesome and sustainable as possible.
In fact, their highly commended achievement from the Your Dog Magazine awards was awarded to their most sustainable food to date; their new and improved wet food range. This tasty and healthy wet food is hand cooked in Wales and made with responsibly sourced ingredients from British and Irish farms.
Recently relaunched, this food is now available in a new and improved recyclable tray and developed in several tasty varieties, such as wild fish, organic chicken, free range egg, and lamb. It's suitable for adult and senior dogs of any breed, and perfect for even the most sensitive doggy digestion.
Coming out of a pandemic being the optimal time to start a healthier lifestyle, and many of our dogs still carrying that extra lockdown weight, Burns Pet Nutrition’s Weight Control Range offers a great solution to owners who are worried about their oversized dogs.
Alongside their specialist food offering, Burns also supports owners with dietary related queries through their online nutritional advice hub, and informative online articles.
