Burns Dog Food was formed after its owner, John Burns, saw many pets come into his veterinary surgery with the same health issues. He concluded that diet must play a part in this. He therefore recommended that these pets were given home cooked food, such as chicken and rice instead. The results were very significant and many of the problems cleared up. However, he soon realised that preparing home cooked meals every day was a very significant task for busy pet owners. That is why in 1993, he launched his own range of dog food. All these products are made with the best ingredients, which have been shown to be beneficial for health. However, more importantly, they exclude all know ingredients which have been shown to cause allergies and intolerance.

Burns dog food manufactures a range of high quality, holistic diets for dogs. This product meets the differing nutritional requirements of all kinds of dogs with different requirements, as good nutrition is the basis of good health. This range was developed by a Vet called John Burns, with the entire range formulated based on John's veterinary experience with dogs that suffered from diet related health problems. John developed his products due to his concerns about the quality and types of ingredients in many commercial pet foods. He was concerned that these ingredients could be doing more harm than good.

All ingredients used by Burns Pet Nutrition, are hypoallergenic and are free from artificial flavourings and preservatives, wheat and even soya. Burns dog food is a natural recipe that ensures excellent health in dogs of all ages, ranging from puppies, and going up to seniors. John Burns has always taken a holistic approach to the health of pets. This approach worked 20 years ago and is still going strong today. Burns was, and still is a family run operation which places great value on the use of top quality ingredients and excellent customer service. As a company they work very hard to reduce the impact upon which they have on the environment.

Burns Puppy food

Providing your puppy with quality nutrition is vital for ensuring that your puppy has the best possible start in life. Burns puppy food contains all the key nutrients required by both puppies and juniors of all breeds. Unlike some other products on the market, this particular diet contains controlled levels of protein, healthy fats and key minerals which help to promote growth, but at a more sustainable and controlled pace. This is because when puppies grow too quickly, this can put a strain on their joints and bones, which can affect their health later on in life. Burns mini bites are available in a range of sizes from 2kg up to 15kg and available in either chicken and rice or lamb and rice.

Burns adult dog food

This diet can help improve coat, skin and digestive health. The key benefits of this product are that it is hypo-allergenic, which means that it is good for dog which have previously had digestive complaints. This is due to the fact that it only contains quality ingredients such as those mentioned above, and doesn’t contain any cheap bulking products such as soya, wheat or artificial colours.

Burns active dog food

The Burns active range was created to specifically address the nutritional needs to working dogs. This diet contains a formula of hypo-allergenic ingredients such as chicken and brown rice, which can help keep your dog’s coat in good condition and keep their digestive system healthy. Working dogs expend greater amounts of calories that regular dogs, so this diet contains the right amount of calories in order to keep your dog going, without gaining weight. Furthermore, this range of food contains the right quantities of protein in order to sustain muscle mass. A working dog can also describe guide dogs, which require a food that will keep them alert and focused.
