Burns Dog Food - Real Food for Dogs

Burns produce holistic, high quality food for dogs, cats and rabbits to meet their nutritional requirements and provide a basis for good health.

Burns Real Pet Food is based around a home-made diet, and was developed by Veterinary Surgeon, John Burns as a result of his concerns over the quality and type of ingredients being used in many commercial pet foods. Burns pet food range is available to buy online from PET SUPERMARKET®

All Burns diets for dogs and cats are hypo-allergenic and free from artificial flavourings, colourings and preservatives.

Burns is a family run company that places great emphasis on quality and customer service, supports numerous charities and organisations both locally and further afield and works hard to minimise its environmental impact.

Burns Active Chicken & Rice

A VAT-free food developed to meet the higher energy & nutritional requirements of the really active dog. 

The alternative to Veterinary & Prescription Diets

Stockists are often asked "Is there an alternative to the veterinary-only food that has been prescribed for my dog?"

Thanks to the holistic effects of Burns products they can often be used instead of veterinary prescribed foods. Burns works by promoting normal, natural physiology of the whole body, unlike veterinary diets which are generally formulated to alter a specific organ state.

The table below shows, in broad terms, how Burns foods can be an effective replacement for Veterinary & Prescription Dog Food Diets

This list is not a blanket recommendation; we advise that pet owners should contact our nutritional advisors on Free phone 0800 083 66 96 before changing diet as our nutritional advice has to be tailored to suit the individual dog. We also recommend that pet owners should involve their vets in decisions about nutrition.

It is important to remember however that these figures are guidelines only, and there are several factors to be taken into account when assessing your pet's nutritional requirements : -

  1. Activity level
  2. Temperament (stressed animals burn off more calories than relaxed ones)
  3. Metabolism (every animal is an individual with his or her own speed of metabolism; this means that 2 dogs of the same age, breed and weight could have different daily calorie requirements)

In order to provide the correct portions when feeding your dog or cat, it is also helpful to assess your pet's appetite, visual appearance and stools. Whilst poo watching does not sound particularly pleasant, it is one of the best indicators of health. Increased frequency of passing faeces, production of large quantities of stools of loose motions are often frequent signs that an animal is receiving more food than he or she requires.

It is important to obtain an accurate weight for your cat or dog, and also to weigh out the food. Guessing on both accounts gives a large margin of error.

Changing Food Brands

For a successful diet change, we recommend following the feeding pattern below. The daily feeding amount should be split into two equal amounts and the proportions of new food increased over the first week as illustrated.

TOP TIPS: For those dogs who do not make eating a priority, here are some additional points:
- Reduce the number of tit-bits given during the introductory period
- If your dog has been used to eating wet food, moisten with warm water.

DAY 1-2 75% Original Diet
25% New Food
DAY 3-4 50% Original Diet
50% New Food
DAY 5-6 25% Original Diet
75% New Food
DAY 7 100% New Food

  • We have two working cocker spaniels who work very hard during the season and this food keeps them in top condition throughout without dropping any weight.
    Nina Martin - June 19, 2014
  • I have used this for years with Bernese Mountain Dogs, Setters and Labs. All eat it when it is put down and have maintained their health into old age. We have periodically tried alternatives but have always come back to Burns.
