James Wellbeloved Dog Adult Lamb & Rice
James Wellbeloved lamb & rice is a delicious and healthy mix for dogs that suffer from food intolerances.
What it's for
A food allergy or intolerance can make your dog’s life a real misery. Allergies and intolerances are caused by certain ingredients in your dog’s food. In fact, it’s very similar to what happens in us humans. When your dog’s body tries to absorb a certain ingredient, their immune system mistakes it for a nasty virus or something similar. If this happens, you’ll probably find your dog has skin irritation and red patches. They might also be sick, or pass wind more often, which is the last thing anyone wants!
These problems might mean your dog has a different kind of problem too though. If you see any of these symptoms, the best thing to do is speak to your vet. If it is a food allergy, then special food, such as James Wellbeloved lamb & rice can help. It uses natural ingredients, no funny additives or gunk, and avoids foods known to cause allergies in dogs.
- healthy and nutritious
- no additives or artificial ingredients
- lamb is the only protein, avoiding common intolerance-causing proteins like beef or dairy
- rice and barley are gentle on your dog’s stomach
- plenty of vitamins and fatty acids for a lovely, shiny coat
- yucca extract reduces bad smells when your dog goes to the toilet.
How it works
This dry dog food is hypoallergenic. That means that ingredients known to cause a food allergy are avoided. Things like dairy, beef, pork, and wheat are all guilty when it comes to causing allergic reactions in your dog, so you won’t find them in this recipe. There are also no horrible artificial colours or preservatives, as these also sometimes cause allergies. It means the food is much healthier for your dog in general, as natural ingredients are much easier on your dog’s tummy. Your dog is sure to love the taste too!
We also stock James Wellbeloved Dog Adult Turkey & Rice, or Duck & Rice, if you want to treat them to a new flavour.

Feeding The Correct Amount
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 : -
- Activity level
- Temperament (stressed animals burn off more calories than relaxed ones)
- 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.
