Product details

Burns Alert Chicken & Brown Rice is a delicious nutritionally rich dinner for working dogs that are physically active.

What it’s for

Is your pet a working dog, guiding you into town? Or are they an essential partner on the farm? If your dog has a job to do, they’ll need a high-energy, healthy diet. You need your dog to be responsive and obedient and high levels of quality vitamins, minerals, and proteins can be a real benefit. A well-balanced dinner (that’s also high in antioxidants) can keep your furry friend at the peak of health for much longer.

Key benefits

  • helps to increase your dog’s alertness, attentiveness, and work ability
  • complete nutritional mix for a healthy, high energy diet
  • rich in natural antioxidants that reduce the risk of illness
  • hypoallergenic – uses protein sources that won’t irritate food intolerances or allergies
  • high-quality proteins also mean your dog’s appetite is satisfied for longer.

How it works

The ingredients in Burns Alert Chicken & Brown Rice provide everything a working dog needs to stay calm, alert, and attentive. It’s a tasty blend of brown rice and chicken, with added minerals and vitamins to keep them healthy. The vitamins will help your dog to have healthy skin and a soft shiny coat.

The recipe includes seaweed, green tea, and grape seed extract which are all antioxidants – a really important ingredient for fighting free radicals. Free radicals can be dangerous if left to their own devices, as they can weaken your pet’s immune system. This makes them more prone to infection and illness. The antioxidant ingredients in each meal make sure that free radicals don’t build up in their body, keeping them fit and well.

Dogs can often have intolerances towards certain proteins such as beef, dairy and wheat. The Burns Alert Chicken & Brown Rice recipe is hypoallergenic. This means avoids all these potentially harmful proteins, reducing the risk of a nasty allergic reaction. Because the protein sources in this food are high-quality, your dog will be able to digest them much more easily. They will also provide a greater feeling of satisfaction, and your pup will feel fuller for longer. They’ll therefore be less likely to overeat so it’ll be easier to help your working dog to stay at their ideal weight.

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.

  • Best food ever for my dog.
    I've used Burns for the last 9 years as my Springer cannot cope with the bulk of any other food. She loves Burns food, it does her good and her coat is excellent. Over the last 50 years I have had pet dogs, cats and a variety of furry and finned pets - so have some experience. I would recommend Burns Alert.
