Meals for Mutts is an Australian holistic pet food company. They claim their products are “super premium”, using all-natural quality ingredients. But is the food good from an ingredients and nutrition standpoint? Let’s take a look…
This review is for grain free Duck & Turkey.
Duck and turkey meat is the main ingredient which is what we’d expect, but given meat has a high water content we could find the prominence of this ingredient significantly reduced after cooking. We also have red lentils and peas in the top 5 ingredients which will further bulk up the 30% protein. I’d assume the protein in the food comes largely from the peas and lentils than the meat, which is worth taking into account, but that said 30% protein is much higher than average.
Sweet potato is the main source of carbs and a good choice. It’s worth noting that potato, like our first ingredient, is also high in water which will be reduced during the cooking process. Finding seasonal vegetables as the fourth ingredient should ensure your “mutt” is getting a decent balanced diet.
I really can’t fault the other ingredients, with natural oils and omega fats being included for heart and general health as well as for skin and coat. Alfalfa is a wonderful ingredient that’s become more prominent in pet foods over recent years, and is classed as a “super food”. We also find a range of vitamins and minerals which really round off this food.
This is a very well formulated food, highly recommended.
Where to buy?
Good ingredients all round.
Nothing worth mentioning.
