Meals for Mutts is an Australian pet food company. It’s a great name, and over the years they’ve established a loyal following. A change of manufacturer circa 2018 lead to a few product changes, but the product still holds it’s own compared to other brands.
For our Meals for Mutts grain free dog food review we’ll take a look at the Single Protein Chicken formula, labelled as hypoallergenic, grain free, and gluten free.
Meals for Mutts Grain Free dog food review
What the marketing says
Meals for Mutts is labelled hypoallergenic and gluten free, which would make this a good option for allergy-prone dogs. Over time this has evidently been the case and I’m aware of numerous dogs who have recovered from allergies or itchy skin from cereal/cereal by-product based dog foods.
On the Meals for Mutts website they claim the food is nutrient rich, high protein, hypoallergenic, highly digestible, with a blend of probiotics to support immune system. Most of these are loose terms but they do appear to be somewhat the case. The claim to being “high protein” is thankfully true, with a 28% protein constituent being above average for a kibble.
What the labelling really says
There are three main ingredients, a combination of chicken meat, sweet potato, and seasonal vegetables. There’s some ambiguity here, especially with the vegetables – it would be nice to know what they are. We could assume peas or something similar which are common in grain free foods. The natural fats and oils are somewhat ambiguous, but they state on the website this is derived from the main protein source, which is chicken.
The protein percentage is a respectable 28%, as is the fat content of 16%. This would suggest a lower than average percentage of carbs, which is a definite plus. The protein will be a combination of meat and plant proteins, which also suggests the likes of peas as seasonal vegetables.
There’s some really nice inclusions in the food. Alfalfa is a wonderful ingredient that’s become more prominent in pet foods over recent years, and is classed as a “super food”. Combined with coconut oil, anti-cancer turmeric, parsley, kelp, and added pre & probiotics should really boost your dog’s immune system and well-being.
The ingredients stack up, and it’s a food worth adding to a rotation. Pricewise it’s more affordable than some other highly-rated brands, so if you don’t have cash coming out of your ears this could be a good choice.
