Adam Henson supports national campaign to 'Dump the Junk' from pets diets

Say No to Nasties!

Adam Henson, TV presenter, farmer and lifelong dog owner, joins us to promote a national campaign Dump The Junk – to help lift the lid on pet food ‘nasties’ found in many dog foods. With 85% of UK dog owners stating they’re unsure of the ingredients in today’s pet foods, we’re keen to encourage more owners to check pet food labels and say no to nasties; as they’re not only low in nutritional value, but can be harmful to a dog’s health and behaviour.

With an easy-to-use Nasties List, we’ve highlighted ingredients that pet owners should avoid, ranging from hidden fillers through to colourings and flavourings. Of course there are plenty of wonderful ingredients out there to feed our pets to keep them happy and healthy, so we’ve also listed our Mealtime Must-Haves to ensure dogs thrive on a nutritionally rich, complete balanced diet.

  • Rendered Fat
  • Cereal
  • ‘Germ’, ‘Bran’, ‘Middlings’, ‘Grits’, or ‘Hulls’
