Growling Tums is the great name of a new dog food company, based in Glasgow. The owners started the company this year with the aim to provide a balance between healthy nutrition and price. They do this by selling their dog food exclusively on their own website.
“Cheap Natural Dog Food for Smart Dog Owners”
What’s interesting about Growling Tums is that all their foods are hypoallergenic. Whilst Lupo doesn’t have any allergies, I try to avoid a high grain or cereal content in his food. This bulks the food out and is equivilant to us humans eating high carb fast food, in that we’ll probably be hungry shortly afterwards.
I remember when I was a child, we bought dog food because of the brand – Pedigree Chum, no conversation was ever had about the contents of the food, we just trusted the name. So as we’ve become more aware of what effects different foods have on our dogs, it’s vital you learn how to read the ingredients – what’s a good percentage and what do you need to avoid?
We’ve been testing the duck and Potato adult dog food and I have slowly phased it in to Lupo’s twice a day meals, alongside the tinned meat he eats. Here are the ingredients:
Potato (min 35%), duck meal (min 26%), peas, beet pulp, poultry fat, brewers yeast, linseed, digest, minerals and vitamins.
Analysis: Protein 26%, Oil 12%, Fibre 4%, Ash 10%
Calorific value – 359.96kcal/100g; Omega 6 – 2.42%; Omega 3 – 0.64%; Omega 6:3 ratio – 3.78%
- Single protein, top taste human quality duck.
- Natural – No artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives.
- Wont upset their tummies.
Protein from the Duck is a minimum of 26%, which is great. You can see very few ingredients in total, the addition of potato and peas are much better than bulking out with cereal as they contain far more goodness for your dog. Growling Tums dog food is 100% natural and made from locally sourced British ingredients. Kevin from Growling Tums adds,
“These things are important to us because our aim is to help people, help their dogs to stay healthy at an affordable price.”
Starting from £30.99, the Delicate Duck & Potato Grain & Cereal Free Dog Food is available in: 15kg, 12kg & 7.5kg sizes. It comes up cheaper than the likes of James Wellbeloved, but contains more goodness than the likes of Burns, at a lower price.
After nearly a month of Growling Tums food, twice a day, Lupo has a noticeably shinier coat and always leaves a clean bowl. I’d have no hesitation recommending this food to fellow dog owners looking for quality, a great price and to support an up and coming British business. Growling Tums also cater for puppies, and as food is so important for both growth and behaviour, you’ll be giving them the best start in life if you choose Growling Tums.
