Meals for Mutts is an Australian holistic pet food company. They claim their products are “super premium”, using all-natural quality ingredients. Their grain free food is very good, so how do their marginally cheaper grain-based foods compare?
This review is for the Kangaroo & Lamb variety, but consider the other grain-based foods in the range on par.
On first inspection this appears to be a low-protein food with a fair amount of carbs. This would be better suited to older or less active dogs that don’t need as much protein.
Kangaroo and lamb meat is the main ingredient and will constitute most of the 20% protein in this food. Peas are a further source of protein as the 4th ingredient. This makes a solid base for the food.
The choice of grain is ground brown rice which is one of the better choices, and it’s nice to see brown instead of the cheaper and inferior white rice.
What really puts this food above most supermarket brands is the quality of ingredients here on in. We find seasonal vegetables, alfalfa, and natural fats and oils. These are all good to see and really balance out the food. They’ve thrown in some great vitamins and minerals as well as omega fats for healthy joints and all-round good health.
It’s certainly a well-balanced food and far better than most, just keep in mind it only contains a moderate amount of protein. If this is an issue for you then I recommend their grain free food.
Where to buy?
Good ingredients all round.
Could do with more meat content.
