“Bakers and skin allergies”

Written on: 01/12/2013

Partly through my own laziness, I have bought bakers over the last couple of years as it is so easily accessible at supermarkets, I just carried on. My scotty became very poorly with itchy flakey skin with big spots all over him. He would roll around all day trying to scratch them and just became depressed. My vets tried to tell me have may have mysterious disease and wanted to start to slice and dice him. I just sat looking at him one night and I thought, I know my dog, he is not seriously… Read Full Review

“Don't ! Just Don't !”

Written on: 02/11/2013 by davewatts2000 (1 review written)

I am not a reviewer by any means, but this is different. I'd been feeding my JRT this for a good few years and on reflection he never gained weight, never settled or really relaxed around the house (even tho he is 7), Whinged a lot generally about anything, paid lots of attention to his ears and moults he loads. Even tho he is walked twice a day and has loads of toys and things etc I thought there might have been a touch or boredom going on until one night after dinner he started to slink… Read Full Review

“Bakers Good or Bad?”

Written on: 19/10/2013 by Doglistener (1 review written)

I think this says it all. At the time of writing I believe there are 13 Es in their Bakers Complete dog food. If this incorrect, then that is an awful lot of Es Ten of these Es have apparently been flagged as causes of concern at different levels. Additives and Preservatives: Bakers Complete contains 13 E numbers. To put this into perspective, the oft maligned McDonalds hamburger contains 7 E numbers. In Bakers Complete these are used for a variety of purposes, such as colourings and… Read Full Review

“New size boxes”

Written on: 12/10/2013

I've just had to buy one of bakers new 1.35kg size boxes ( it was all sainsburys had to offer ) . I don't know weather it was a conscious decision to deceive but the packet inside the box was less than 1/2 the size of the box itself . So not enough to fill their back teeth ! Nice one bakers… Read Full Review

“Made my Puppy very very ill. Resulting in vets bills.”

Written on: 22/08/2013 by footsteps (1 review written)

Brought this for my 8 week old puppy. He became very ill with terrible diarrhea. At first we thought he was ill so took him to vets. He checked him over and asked abut feeding. When we told him we used Bakers Puppy he frowned and described it as Macdonalds for dogs and to stop using it. When I returned the products we had that we had not opened the pet store said he exact same thing along with Wagg and Pedigree that they regularly get complaints about making dogs ill. I asked why they sold it… Read Full Review

“Very poor product! ”

Written on: 04/08/2013 by CazzaEhm (1 review written)

I gave this to my puppy and she was ill with a swollen stomach and diarrhoea which contained blood at some points. This product must have ingredients which to not agree with a dogs system. My dog could not toilet train as she couldn't hold it in and had to empty her bowels 3-5 times a day. It was always really soft or watery. Not impressed. Improvements are needed with this product!… Read Full Review

My staffy has put on a lot of weight with this food. I have a feeling it is high in fat. I have been feeding her Bakers for about a year but she has had some health problems and put on a lot of weight. I decided to try her on low fat Iams and she has really improved after just a few days. Her stools are darker and more solid too. Anyone wanna but 20Kgs of Bakers as I wont feed my dog with it again..!! I think its just too high in fat..!!… Read Full Review

Doglistener's Response to Monkeyjames's Review

Written on: 03/09/2013

These are ten of the E numbers in Bakers. So continue poisoning your dog!

E320 - has been found to be tumour-producing when fed to rats. In human studies it has been linked with urticaria, angioedema and asthma

E321 - banned for use in food in Japan, Romania, Sweden, and Australia. The US has barred it from being ...used in infant foods. So bad McDonalds have voluntarily eliminated it from their products.

E310 - Banned from children's foods in the US because it is thought to cause the blood disorder methemoglobinemia

E172 - Banned in Germany

E132 - Can cause skin sensitivity, a rash similar to nettle rash, itching, nausea, high blood pressure and breathing problems. One of the colours that the Hyperactive Children's Support Group recommends be eliminated from the diet of children. Banned in Norway.

E102 - TARTRAZINE - A trial on 76 children diagnosed as hyperactive, showed that tartrazine provoked abnormal behaviour patterns in 79% of them

E110 - Sunset Yellow has been found to damage kidneys and adrenals when fed to laboratory rats. It has also been found to be carcinogenic when fed to animals

E104 - One of the colours that the Hyperactive Children's Support Group recommends be eliminated from the diet of children. Banned in Australia, Japan, Norway and the United States.

E171 - Banned in Germany

E153 - Banned as a food additive in the United States of America. Suspected as a carcinogenic agent.

“Big mistake!”

Written on: 20/02/2013 by gezzathorpe (1 review written)

We have been feeding our border terrier (3.5 years old) on Wagg (not saying it's necessary good) but he has been fine. We recently switched to Bakers for some incomprehensible reason. Almost immediately his stools became yellow and there seemed to be traces of blood in them. He then had two accidents with diarrhea inside the house which he has not done since he was a puppy. We also found excrement or vomit (not sure which) in the garden which was bright red, which we think was blood. We have… Read Full Review

“Bakers made my dog fat”

Written on: 12/02/2013 by Catherine8 (1 review written)

My cocker/king charles cross has suffered weight problems and allergies since he was a puppy. On the advice of the vet I took him off Bakers and used the vets own brand of dry dog food. Nothing else in his diet changed but he lost 4 kgs in 2 months. The McDonalds of the dog world!… Read Full Review

“My dog has always thrived on it - she is now 12 years old”

Written on: 08/02/2013

It's been a great diet for her, used in measured amounts and fed twice per day. Make sure your dog always has plenty of fresh water and don't give too many treats. In addition to regular health checks etc and lots of love and exercise. The negative reviews seem to relate to possible other problems or secondary issues. There is a lot of choice out there and a lot of money to be made, so beware of unproven hypes relating to 'all in one' foods. I am currently comparing for a food that will help… Read Full Review
