Steviejay01's review of Burns Dog Food

“I own a 6 month old Olde Tyme Bulldogge / Mastiff...”

Written on: 10/05/2009 by Steviejay01 (1 review written)

Good Points
Feed them less at if fluffs up with water so lasts longer
Firm healthy stools within 12 hours of feeding him
Keeps him full for MUCH longer
Less to clear up when he goes to the toilet
No smell........odd.....but we are not complaining!! :-)

Bad Points
Wish more shops stocked it.
We get it from Ebay £39.99 delivered for 15kgs

General Comments
I own a 6 month old Olde Tyme Bulldogge / Mastiff Cross, he has always suffered from runny stool's, from day one he would either have liquid poo or very very soft and sloppy, difficult to pick up at best!, very light brown/green coloured, a lot of the time I would have to do my best to get it up from the grass in our garden, then hose the area down to wash it away!!



I started to look around these review sites and reading into foods and noticed very quickly how your dogs diet can be neglected.

He was on Skinners Field and Trial (maintanance) as suggested by the breeder, I was going to put him on Bakers Complete to try that but was HORRIFIED about the 13E numbers in that food!!!! and the warning "do not feed to livestock!" its all coming to light now about whats actually in dog food, and the Burns food seems to get raving reviews, I can now see why!



I was paying £15 for 15kgs of skinners, to me it was a "bargain", thats the way I looked at it........what I failed to do was be logical about it.

Its 15 quid for a reason.....I ordered some of the burns, Cody my dog had a poo the morning the food arrived....it was sloppy as usual, he had his usual meal of 1.5 cups of skinners that morning, did his usual few poo's which were still wet and he threw up the skinners too which was a first!


Well that evening we put his straight onto the Burns Lamb and Brown Rice, (I know your mean to mix the foods in so they do not get a dodgy stomach, but bare in mind he's had the runs anyway and the food obviously never agreed with him) the next morning we went for his usual walk......he squatted as usual and he had his very first poo, it was smaller than normal, the smell was non exhistant, and best of all it was firm dark and healthy.


They always say you can tell a healthy dog from its stool....this food sorted out Cody's issues within 12 hours!, we have had problems for the last 90 days with him!!


Another thing......the price of burns is £40 delivered from ebay....

So it IS more expensive......the big BUT.....point is you use less.


He is on 150g in the morning, and 150 at night, thats 1 cup as opposed to 1.5 cubs of skinners.......so when you work it out it will last a lot longer bag to bag...its not actually THAT much expensive!


I urge you to look into the foods you feed your dogs, its not a lot to ask, a lot of foods say byproducts of chicken, derivitives or this and that......A byproduct of chicken mean is NOT chicken meat....bare that in mind!!

If you want a healty fit dog with beautiful coat, good teeth, healthy insides and bright eyes, then pay that little bit extra...


Cheap food is cheap for a reason.....


I read the reviews about Bakers Complete....people say "my dog wolfs it down so he must love it!!"

?????????????


My 4yr old daughter will "WOLF" down Mcdonalds and chocolate, but she's not eating that rubbish every day!, think about the problems she would have later in life:



Behaviour

Weight

Skin

Heart

Hair



Its the same with your dog, dogs are not interested in bright coloured foods, thats all for me and you to look and go.....Ooooh how pretty is that packaging, look at all the colours representing the food groups.....what they fail to tell you is the 13E numbers will have your dog acting like a stroppy child, or all the sugar and salt with have it bouncing off the ceiling!


Burns for us is a real breakthrough, 3 days now and he just has a poo in the morning and one at night, thats it.....


Happy, Healthy puppy, and I hope he will be with us for a long long time.

I found this review helpful because..
<br/>i have had my dog now for 6 weeks and its like deja vu reading your article. She was eating purina beta as it is reasonably priced and 'seemed' to have the right ingredients. Since she has been eating this her stools have been mostly loose, sometimes runny and only occasionally firm. I thought i was being sensible allowing time for her to settle and all the usual puppy uncertainties but enough is enough when it comes to her health. I have been researching various foods now for about a week and am becomming more angry with the rubbish that is passed as good food. I have now ordered some Burns. Will let you know if I have the same success as you - i hope so. Thanks

I have been feeding my puppy the Bakers Complete which he did like. The vet now suspects he may have a food allergy so the E numbers you say are in that will definately aggravate his condition. Several people have mentioned Burns food but a while ago I heard bad reviews on how it upset the dogs where they were eating their own faecis and basically chewing their own skin because the food was not filling them enough. I am trying to find a suitable hypoallergenic food (my dog is 11 months old)and would be grateful of any comments on the bad reviews mentioned.

Glad you found my review helpful :-)<br/>Just an update really, Cody is packing the<br/>weight on now, 8 months and 24kgs of lean<br/>muscle, very fit, laid back dog, coat is amazing<br/>really glossy (not greasy) still very happy with the<br/>diet.<br/><br/>How's your dog coping on the burns diet?<br/>Steve
