“At Last ”

Written on: 27/05/2013 by MandySherwin (14 reviews written)

I have a 9 year old Weimeraner crossbreed who, to put it midly has serious digestive upset, stomach acid and I have to be very cautious what I feed her. I was reluctant to try Naurediet as I have read a lot of bad reviews about mouldy contents and blown packets. I liked the contents in it as there are no nasty cereals, additives and fillers and the meat content is very high. I have started feeding her the Senior lite variety and her stomach has improved tremendously. Very little stomach gurgles… Read Full Review

“One of the best”

Written on: 04/05/2013 by Val740 (4 reviews written)

We have just returned to feeding our 15 year old JR Nature Diet after he was put onto a low fat diet due to pancreatitis. We introduced it gradually and she is now very happy again eating this food. We like the fact that it has a high meat content which is best for dogs and we are having the Senior/Lite which is low fat. It produces much better stools than her old food and there is no more wind due to a lot of grains. Happy dog and happy owners… Read Full Review

“saved my dog's life!”

Written on: 18/02/2013

I have read the negative reviews regarding this dog food and have only good words to say about Naturediet. I live in France and in the past was only able to obtain it via Zooplus. They seem to be in the habit of breaking up the original boxes and I had a lot of problems with blown packs. However, I am now able to order via Amazon UK and have had no problems at all as I receive them in the original boxes, firmly secured. I have a Cavalier King Charles who was very ill 2 years ago, and if it… Read Full Review

“Not a reliable product”

Written on: 05/04/2012

Purchased a box of 18 trays of Naturediet. On opening found that one had burst spilling the foul smelling contents over the other trays. Around half of the trays were puffed up, suggesting some sort of contamination. Opened two of the Ok looking trays but the contents were rancid and foul smelling with a black liquid oozing out. Difficult to get the smell out of the kitchen. Disposed of the whole batch of 18 trays. No response to my email from Naturediet… Read Full Review

“Recent problem with NatureDiet after 9 years.”

Written on: 23/03/2012 by Poordog123 (1 review written)

My Labrador has had NatureDiet since a puppy. Only recently has she had symptoms of vomiting and diarrhoea. I knew it was the NatureDiet as when we changed her onto Royal Canin sensitivity control, she improved straight away. After 10 - 12 days, we re-introduced NatureDiet and she was ill again. I don't think I will feed her it again. I will ask my vet for an alternative. … Read Full Review

nature diet saved my dog because after having major surgery on his intestines we couldnt find a single food that would harden his stools till we tried nature diet sensitive which worked in 24 hours luckily he is steadily gainin his weight back and on to other nature diet flavours and for people to give bad reviews based on packaging seems ridiculous to me,thanks to people who actually care about what goes into dog food for saving my dogs life… Read Full Review

“NATUREDIET CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR PETS' HEALTH!”

Written on: 19/06/2011 by parsley00 (2 reviews written)

If you would like to know why, read on …. When we adopted our dog, we purchased several boxes of Naturediet and started to feed our pet. She seemed hesitant to eat the food but, as this was the only food available to her, she ate it, reluctantly. We found various cartons ‘blown’ and the food rotten. We wrote to Nature Diet advising them of the incidence of blown packs. the following standard PR response was their answer to this problem. ‘With no preservatives in our products… Read Full Review

This review totally reflects my experience with this company. I almost lost my happy healthy 2 year old GSD in the same circumstances and the company didn't give a hoot. If you love your dog do not play russian roulette with his life by giving him this food!!!!

Written on: 13/12/2013

This is exactly my experience - this company is a total disgrace. This company will happily accept compliments and good feedback on their FACEBOOK page but all concerns about the product or questions are deleted. This is not good enough when puppies' health is at stake. Contact customer services and you get a generic response saying it is not their problem but the retailers. My puppies were ill after eating this food and it was only afterwards that I checked the empty pack and the smell was rancid. Many of the packs in the box were bloated and even the ones which were not - that I opened - were a funny colour and the smell is disgusting. amazon.co.uk refunded all our money today and told us to get rid of all the food BUT I am trying to find out who this company has to answer to (Trading Standards etc) and will keep the food as proof.

Exactly! This has been going on for years when I started researching their bad food, caused by poor packaging. But still they are selling it in the same packets. It's disappointing when it is advertised as a good wholesome food without a lot of junk in it at a reasonable price.
I am pleased a few people are supporting my complaints as I have had some very nasty replies which was most upsetting as the last think I would do is to make my Poochie unwell! Jenny

I had a bad batch too ,sent them a email and their email back was ----------Thank you for your email and I regret to hear you have cause for concern regarding Naturediet Puppy/Junior.



I have looked into this batch number and there does not appear to be any problems with that batch. The appearance and the aroma of Naturediet can be different from batch to batch as we use all natural ingredients.



For a pack, which has been correctly sterilised to become mouldy or smell off, it is necessary for air containing the spoilage bacteria to re-enter the package. This is only possible if the pack has a ruptured seal or a hole somewhere in the pack. The only possible cause is some form of damage to the packing, most probably in the packing or distribution chain. We take every precaution to prevent damage to the point of dispatch and we even print the boxes with “Do Not Drop”, “Plastic Containers Handle With Care”.



If you are not happy to use these packs we recommend returning them to your supplier for replacements or refund.



I have logged your complaint and the batch numbers you have provided and we will do further investigations.



If you have any further problems or queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

I am pleased that at last I am not the only person who had problems with this food! I have received some very nasty comments from some people telling me how stupid I was feeding my puppy with food that was off! But as you and others say it isnt obvious. There is obviously still a terrible problem with their packaging and I noticed in the pet shop yesterday it's still the same...seems they do not care about the upsetting illnesses and costs involved after feeding our dogs with it.

Just to add to this. I will be sending samples of the packs (I have loads from one batch) off for microbiological testing (and I will send the bill for this to Naturediet). I have taken advise and there are several avenues that can be followed to have this matter properly addressed once and for all. If anyone wants kept up-to-date with the progress of this please contact me via Facebook through one of my pages karatefundogs.

Written on: 02/01/2011

The difference in our dog since going onto Nature Diet has been outstanding - results not seen with any other dog food which we have tried. It was recommended to us by a behaviourist and we have not looked back since! Our dog's poos now have no smell, are completely dry and are much smaller than they once were.

We have had a few packets which have smelt a little "unusual" but certainly not rancid like some of the reviews have said. We've noticed it more with the lamb than with the other… Read Full Review

Read the reviews, many have had food poisoning and my puppy was sick for24 hours but luckily only fed a little to her. Be careful the packaging does not seal properly and air gets in! Being veggie wasn't sure how food should smell, don't expect puppy food to be off!, won't buy ever again, too much risk.

I had been feeding Wainwrights since 8 weeks old, based on some research I had done online, I have found nothing but trouble with it. Puppy was constantly having loose stools and going to the toilet up to 6 times a day. The poo was pudding soft, with mucus and slime init. I can only assume it… Read Full Review

My dog was thriving on this food after several attempts to find something his delicate tummy could tolerate and I was delighted.
However along with other reviewers I have found blown packs in bulk orders. I could live with that as it is obvious the pack isn't sealed and you can usually get your money back.
What I have been less impressed with is apparently intact packs that when opened leave you reeling with the stink. While I dont expect my dog's food to smell great I also dont expect to… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/11/2010

I found this review very helpful because...we have had the same problems with naturediet recentley, so much so we have thrown away a number of unused packets because of the pungent smell. We used the naturediet ones that had no smell on them and presumed they were okay. This week i had to take my eleven month old puppy to the vets as she was not at all well, she was vomiting and then she stopped eating all together. The vet diognosed she had a gastric problem and gave her two injections and two sets of tablets which cost me £48.00. We spoke to our local petshop owner on Saturday he told us he had had complaints of the same nature so he decided to open some of his packets to which he found the same problem bad smells.He returned them to you and your explanation was the machinery that seals the product was faulty. Today Sunday we went to the petshop were we bought the naturediet from to explain our situation,the owner listened to us and although she said they had not had any complaints she has in the past had people bring them back because they had been punctured.She refunded our money and said she would get in touch with you. As a good will gesture would you consider reembursing me the veternary fee if i send you my receipt. I will follow this email up with a phone call to you tomorrow. Mrs Oldfield.

Positively dangerous. I am no longer prepared to risk my pet's safety by feeding petfood which has the potential to make her seriously ill. I used to be a massive Naturediet fan. The ingredients are 100% trustworthy & my dog thrived on this food. So why the 2 stars & "dangerous" label? I have lost count of the number of "blown" trays of rancid food I have ended up with.
