Chews, treats & food by ‘ingredient’
Don’t forget we now offer FREE DELIVERY on orders over £60!
We have grouped all our food, treats and chews by their main ‘ingredient’
Most are ‘single source’ i.e. just rabbit or just duck or just vegetable, but it says clearly if not! Our small range of complete foods are listed under here too. Use the headings below to go straight to the section you want, or read on for a bit more help and information!
There are so many brilliant chews and treats! We use both meaty and vegetable (plant based) ones – the key for most dogs is variety as part of a well-rounded diet! But if you have a dog on a particular diet for allergies or sensitivities, selecting carefully is really important – and can sometimes be hard as things that say ‘rabbit’ on the front, might actually have chicken in too (packaging is a nightmare!).
A note on meat/animal origin chews, treats and food.
These get a big thumbs up from most dogs! Packed with flavour and have some good nutritional benefits too, but for us it is really important to choose these ethically and with health in mind. Where possible, we always suggest looking for organic, free-range, pasture-raised sources – not only does this improve the quality and wellbeing of the animals used, it makes the chews themselves far more nutritious. They aren’t easy to find in the dog product market, but the chews in the ranges below are sourced as ethically as possible, from the UK as a first choice, the EU if not and never from China.
A note on veggie (plant based) chews and treats
Great textures, lots of superfoods, low fat, easy to digest for most dogs and fantastic nutritional benefits – what is there not to like? Even dogs that supposedly don’t like vegetables usually really love these (and yes, we all know one who will lick the peas clean and leave them in the bowl!). Even better, they come in a huge variety of textures and flavours and they are, without doubt, some of our favourites!
Fantastic lean protein, low in cholesterol and packed with B vitamins. It’s often referred to as a cooling protein source so thought less likely to add to inflammation in the body and for dogs with food sensitivities or gastric upset, we find it can be really well tolerated and easily digested. What’s not to love?
Another great lean protein, which is packed with vitamins and minerals, easy to digest and super tasty! Like rabbit, it’s often referred to as a cooling protein source so thought less likely to add to inflammation in the body and for dogs with food sensitivities or gastric upset, we find it can be really well tolerated and easily digested. It’s also quite readily available now and there are some great foods and treats which are duck based.
Nutritious, tasty, easily digested by most dogs, packed with B vitamins and minerals such as zinc, phosphorous, and iron and lower in fat and cholesterol than most other red meats (like beef)
Super nutritious, easily digested, really palatable, low fat, low cholesterol and naturally high in iron.
Veggie (plant based)
Great textures, shapes and sizes, lots of superfoods, low fat, easy to digest for most dogs and fantastic nutritional benefits – what is there not to like? Some of our dogs favourite chews and treats are completely plant-based!
The nutritional properties of fish vary according to the fish type. Oily fish like sprats and mackerel tend to be higher in Omega 3 (which is SUCH an important nutrient) whereas white fish is super low in fat. But overall, fish is packed full of nutrients and is another of the key ‘cooling foods’ alongside rabbit and duck. It gets a big thumbs up from us and most dogs love the flavour.
There is something irresistible about a buffalo horn – no dog should be without one. And buffalo itself is leaner than most other red meats – the buffalo chews here are all grass fed and 100% hormone free too!
Tasty, a good source of packed with B vitamins, zinc and iron. The meat can be a little more fatty than other red meats (but not really an issue with ears and tripe). Lamb tripe is highly nutritious and digestible.
Great as part of a novel protein diet, or just for variety! Goat is high in vitamin B2 and iron, but can be a bit variable in fat content (the older the goat, the fattier the meat can be), but ears are mostly just cartilage and a lot less fatty than pig ears and our dogs tell us they are a tasty alternative to lamb!
Readily available but source is important. It can be fattier than some of the other red meats (depending on the cut), but dogs love it and it’s a good source of protein as part of an overall balanced diet. Tripe is particularly nutritious.
A lean, white, nutritious meat which many dogs find easy to digest. Some dogs who are sensitive to chicken can actually eat still turkey, so it is a useful alternative. Typically lower in saturated fats and cholesterol than the red meats.
Kangaroo is the leanest of the red meats and better still, the small amount of fat in there is unsaturated. Kangaroo also has particularly good levels of zinc and iron and as a novel protein source for most dogs, it can be a good choice for those with sensitivities.
Lower fat than pork and with a better omega 3 content than most other meats.
A higher fat meat, but for liver paste, it works well!
A very common ingredient in dog food, treats and chews due to its availability.
Well, dried smoked yak’s milk (from the Himalayas) – we haven’t actually seen any other yak products around!
Brilliant chews, we think every dog should have at least one!
