Hidden Nasties in Dog Treats

When I got Sausage Suckered. “Argggh… I’ve gone into full-blown rant mode! You can tell by the number of exclamation marks!!!” That’s me two-thirds of the way down this post… why? Let me tell you… As well as selling on our own site, we also sell on some of the big online channels.  I regularly …

When is 100% Chicken NOT 100% Chicken?

You may already have heard me say this, but our first dog Sorrel developed various itching and digestive issues as she got older. It was only many years later after we had started selling dog treats (and I experienced my own grain-based stomach problems), that I realised what had happened. We’d naively fed her big …

We Began to Wonder About Calling the Vet…

Roscoe began itching maybe a month or so after we moved off the breeder’s recommended puppy food and onto new adult food (this was before we were creating our own Bounce and Bella grain-free food). We thought it was fleas initially (even though we never found any), so we bought everything we needed to fix …

Vets for Free

As pet parents, our dogs start showing us they are suffering, but we don’t know how bad it is, we wonder whether we should be getting in touch with the vets – is it serious enough? Are we wasting their time and ours? Dogs hide injuries or illnesses… However, dogs, because of their previous wolf …

What are Animal Derivatives, and why are they AWFUL?

Today I’m clambering onto my high horse and talking animal derivatives… What are animal derivatives? Animal or meat derivatives can legally come from ANY part of an animal. Beaks, heads, claws etc. they all get dumped in the leftover bucket and ground into a usable ‘ingredient’. But even worse they can come from ANY animal… …
