This food has been an absolute life saver for our elderly Jack Russell who suffers from pancreatitis. We have struggled to find a low fat food which does not upset her digestive system and produces normal solid poo and we were so pleased to find this really works. It is good quality food and, whilst quite expensive, worth every penny to us. Would recommend it to anyone whose dog has digestive problems. Thank you Burns. (read more)

I feed my 9 year old weimeraner with the hypo allergenic mixer and naturediet. She loves these biscuits and this is the best food you can give to your dog. Bit pricey, but then again, you only get what you pay for. (read more)

My border collie started suffering with constipation and diarrhoea when she was 3. Having tried every single thing I could think of I went to the vets because she was becoming so thin. After nearly £1,500 worth of surgery, biopsies and head scratching I was informed that they didn't actually know what was wrong with her other than 'yes, she does seem to have some sort of stomach agrivating aliment'. I was loaded down with drugs for her and told to feed her the Hills science diet.... (read more)

I have been using Burns for some time as 2 of my Chow Chows developed an intolerance to poultry based premium dry dog food. Burns Pork & Potato was the answer. I changed all my dogs (5) of them onto Burns, on likes the fish and the other 2 like the lamb variety. All was well until I purchased my last bag of Burns Pork & Potato. When I opened it I noticed it was much darked in colour, but didn't think anything of it, then when I soaked it for my oldie I noticed it was a lot firmer (it... (read more)

I have a Bichon frise who is 2 years old, when we got her she was being fed on pedigree and we wanted to change her on to better quality food, so I looked around and founds burns. It really is good not only is it the only dog food my dog can now eat as she has irritable bowel syndrome but it cleared up her tear stains. The only thing is it is more expensive then supermarket dog food but it is GREAT value for money. (read more)

This review is for the moist dog food as my dog doesn't like the kibble but she loves the moist, especially the egg flavour. Although it's expensive, it's worth every penny for a dog who isn't fussed about food, she simply loves this. It looks much more like human food than other dog food. She's a 7 month old Shih Tzu and this food is okay for all dogs over 6 months. The only problem was the price but each pouch should last 2 days for a puppy at around £1.60 a pack, well worth it if your... (read more)

I recommend this to everyone.
Their food suits all types of dogs. We have an old lab and a youngish collie. The lab is on the senior working dog and the collie on the high energy working dog.
And the other thing is they don't use battery chickens which to me is very important as I don't see why another animal should suffer for mine.
Seems expensive when you first buy a sack but it lasts 3 times longer than Bakers : ) and there isn't as much poo! : ) (read more)

My rescue Springer is nine years old. Ever since I had him at eighteen months he has tended to have overly soft stools. Typically, his first poo of the day would be okay but thereafter they would be very soft or liquid. He was fed on Pro Plan dried food. A couple of years ago, I changed to Burns lamb and rice. Ever since then, he has lovely firm stools. (read more)

I own a boarding kennel (and have seven dogs of my own), we have been using Burns for about 5 years now, an excellent product. I stock Pork and Potato, Lamb and Rice, Chicken and Rice and the last two also in the Alert range[vat free].
As I wish all my Clients dogs to be fed on Burns when they stay here I also sell it so that there is no change of diet when they arrive and hopefully therefore no upset tummies.
What's most popular? Well certainly Pork and Potato followed by the Lamb... (read more)

My Border Collie Tessa is 10 years old and has been on Burns since she was a pup. Comments on her shiny coat have been numerous. She has always been well in health. We now have a two year old male border collie as well also on Burns Chicken and Brown rice. His coat is also coming along beautifully.

I bought this food after doing some research. We have a Lab puppy, who seemed to swing from being calm to hypo. He had been on Iams, so we tried Purina, but I still felt his mood changed too quickly. After being on Burns, he is now a lot calmer and does as he his told, although he still has is moments, which you would expect with a puppy. He doesn't need to go to the loo as often, which is a plus and no stinky wind. The food is well worth the extra cost. (read more)

My Labrador is 11 years old and has been fed on Burns for five years. Before that he got an allergic 'hotspot' once or twice a year, costing a fair amount in vets bills. Since being on Burns, he has had only one hotspot and that not so serious as before. He stays steadily at his correct weight and his coat is healthy and shiny. Excellent product and well worth its cost. Cheaper if bought in bulk online from various suppliers. (read more)

My 8 year old Staffy has had many problems over the years with foot chewing and joint pain. She started to turn her nose up at previous foods (she's had Bakers and Jolleyes own brand) so we were pretty happy to find that Wagg (her favourite treat) made food that cost just £9.99 for 15kg. Over the last 2-3 months since she's been on it, she's become progressively weaker, totally lacking in energy, sleeping all the time and her chewed foot became infected.

I have had my third Jack Russel for 18 months and no matter what food I gave her she had very sloppy poo.(Neither of my previous jacks had this problem - they could eat anything!) I stopped giving her any treats and only used her food. Iams was the best but her poo was still difficult to pick up. A friend asked if I had tried Burns which I did. MAGIC! no sloppy poos anymore and I'm now using Burns treats too - fantastic solid stools and a happy, healthy little dog! Wish I'd known about Burns... (read more)

Our dog Emmy (GS X Rhodesian Ridgeback) was plagued with chronic ears infections; we switched her to Burns and saw an enormous improvement, in fact she went 3 years free of problems. They have recurred recently but this is probably due to my husband adding non - Burns stuff to her dried food(he spoils her!). We've just started buying the tinned Burns to add to the dried and feel confident that this will do the trick. Overall, delighted with the food and wouldn't switch now for anything. We... (read more)

I have a 10 year old Rottweiler bitch. By the time she was 18 months old she was usually on Metacam maybe three times a year. I changed to Burns Lamb and Brown Rice, and she hasn't been lame since. She is a very lively ten year old, and I attribute this to the Burns she has been fed on since being a young dog.
The only thing that maybe could be improved is its availability. It has to be ordered from Burns or a few veterinary clinics stock it. (read more)

After much research we have changed our dog from Iams to Burns. He has been munching on this for a day or so now so it's still very early days, but we feel the difference is already noticible. He is fuller for much longer, his digestion seems better and he seems calmer, which for a springer spaniel not yet able to go for walkies (1 week and counting!!) is essential. And the price is value to :o)

Burns Dog food - I bought my Bullmastiff puppy home at 10 weeks. Up until she was 15 months old we probably could have bought another pedigree dog just with the money we were spending on vets bills! She had constant ear infections and would lose patches of hair all over her body. The vet thought this was wet eczema and she had to be bathed every couple of days. Well, within a month of changing her to Burn's, her coat and ears returned to normal. (sorry, I cant remember who recommended it)... (read more)
