Burns Dog Food & Why It's So Great

The range is made up of simple foods which are intended to allow your dog's body to function naturally. All of the Burns dog food range is made from the highest quality ingredients and without any pharmacologically active supplements.

Their dog food recipes aim to let the body get on with what it does best: maintain and repair itself and prevent deterioration of the organs.

The Burns Principles

Burns Dog Food

  • Good health is the normal state of being
  • The body will always tend towards a state of good health
  • Healing will take place is it is possible

Basically, John Burns believes that if we can put in place the correct conditions, the body will do the rest. Correct conditions means correct lifestyle of which diet is the most important and also one which is the easiest for you to control.


What Are The Benefits? 

Designed specially to manage common health problems in dogs: Their recipes ares modelled on a home cooked diet, meaning Burns food is are suited to sensitive dogs with allergies and intolerances. 

Great value for money: Burns focus on using high-quality ingredients which means feeding amounts are lower and feeding costs are cheaper than many other dog foods. It is possible to feed a small dog for 43p per day and a large dog for £1.20.

The clue is in the poo: The ingredients in Burns dog food are highly digestible so the feeding amounts (and cost) are lower than most other foods. An additional benefit of high digestibility is that your dog produces less poo, so less to clean up, which is better for the environment also.

Hypoallergenic: Beef, wheat and dairy are the most common allergens for dogs, so Burns simply avoid using these ingredients. They also understand every pet is different, that’s they offer 'Sensitive' and 'Free From' recipes.
