If your dog has ever been to the vet with an upset tummy, you may have advised you to feed your dog simply on chicken and rice until your pet is better. Chicken and rice is easily digested by your dog, as well as providing a good source of energy and nutrients. With that in mind, surely it makes sense to use these key ingredients as a base for your dog’s daily diet in a complete dry food? Indeed, Arden Grange uses this knowledge in their Adult chicken and rice dry food.
Arden Grange is a family run business based in the UK and have been making quality pet food since 1996. It’s fair to say, their products are towards the high end of the vast range of brands that are now available in supermarkets and online, but the quality of this product and possible health benefits make it superb value for money.
The content of chicken in this feed is high at 32% and only quality cuts of meat are used, being free from antibiotics and growth hormones. You can also be confident that battery raised chickens are not used in this product. Chicken oil is the primary fat source. The medium-size kibble provides a nice bite and density, giving teeth and gums a good workout too. The kibble is suitable for most breeds of dogs, but may be a little small for large/giant breeds that tend to bolt their food. However, there is a product especially for larger dogs within the Arden Grange range.
The food is also free of additives, artificial colours and flavourings, wheat, dairy and soya. The product has no added salt or sugar. Arden Grange prides itself on being a hypoallergenic feed, so a good choice for dogs prone to allergies and itchy skin.
Our tester Oscar, an 8 year old West Highland Terrier was plagued with itchy, red skin especially in warm weather and after grooming sessions. He’s been on Adult Chicken and rice for just over 6 months, and his symptoms have virtually disappeared. His owner has noticed a marked improvement in the condition of his fur and an improvement in his breath too. Oscar was regularly bathed in the costly specialist shampoo Malaseb to control his skin condition, which he no longer requires, hence saving his owner a significant amount of money. A quality product, well worth paying that little bit extra for.
Arden Grange Adult Dog Chicken and Rice Dry Food is available in 3 sizes:
