In a recent study, published in the journal 'NATURE', genetics experts analysed both wolf and dog DNA. For over 20 years, Burns diets, which are based on whole grains such as brown rice and maize with controlled amounts of highly digestible animal protein, have helped to maintain or improve the health of hundreds of thousands of dogs. Recently we have seen a growing trend towards feeding dogs raw food or commercially manufactured grain-free foods. The study showed that dogs, and in particular their digestive systems, have evolved since their days in the wild. Black Adders Flyball TeamBurns are pleased to announce our sponsorship of Black Adders - a British Flyball Association (BFA) registered team, based around Neath-Port Talbot. Louise Caldwell, Trinity & JJLouise is comparatively new to agility and has only been competing for the last six months.
Susie JostyCardiff based Susie Josty began agility in 1997 with her small crossbreed dog Jack. Our meadow hay contains a diverse blend of grass and flower species and is produced on our own non-intensively managed Carmarthenshire farms. To maintain health, rabbits should be fed a high fibre, low fat natural diet and hay and grass should form at least 80% of their daily ration.
Ideally the diet of the pet rabbit, guinea pig or chinchilla should mimic that of their wild cousins. Feeding amounts depend on the amount of excercise, age, breed, environmental factors an individual variation. Original Cat is rich in B vitamins and contains all eleven essential amino acids including taurine. Feeding amounts depend on the amount of exercise, age, breed, environmental factors an individual variation.
It is estimated by the RVC that as many as 87% of dogs and 70% of cats over the age of three suffer from periodontal disease and as a result many insurance companies will not cover your pet for dental conditions unless they are caused by an accident rather than wear and tear. Getting your dog or cat to accept their teeth being brushed from a young age is considered the most beneficial way you can reduce plaque build up[1]. The theory that a diet including raw bones is better than commercial food for dental heath is not completely true.


Interestingly in a 2012 survey[4] of 1101 vets and vet nurses 14% recommended a raw meaty bone diet to promote oral health (after tooth brushing), whereas 36% thought they were bad for dog’s teeth!
In the same study over 76% of vets and vet nurses recommended that feeding a dry diet as a main meal was best for maintaining oral health. If your dog eats quickly or swallows the kibble whole you can increase chewing time by changing to our larger breed kibble Burns Original Large and Giant Breed or by feeding your dog from an interactive toy such as the Kong® Wobbler. On the 8th of May pensioner, Peter Almond took his Springer Spaniel Henry for a walk… with a difference.
The study found that a key factor in the domestication of the dog was their ability to easily digest carbohydrates and starch in food that they scavenged from rubbish dumps around early human settlements.
This new genetic evidence confirms scientific knowledge about the dog’s digestive system*. This is unlike many other brands of hay which are usually produced from a single type of grass. Our Welsh Meadow Hay is a complementary food which should be fed with our Green Oat Hay as the bulk of your rabbit’s diet. Our Welsh Meadow Hay is produced from traditional meadows which contain a variety of species of grasses and flowers.
It is made with the highest quality sources of fish for protein and whole grains to ensure that cats benefit from all of nature’s goodness. However, brushing should be introduced gradually and should always be a positive experience for your pet – your vet can help you with technique. Although this type of natural diet has been shown to reduce tartar, studies have found evidence of periodontitis in feral cats in Australia[2], and in 41% of African Wild Dogs studied[3], in fact wild predators eating a diet with a high bone content suffer more dental fractures. This advice has previously been criticised because the abrasive action of dry food will not work if it is a very delicate kibble (easy to crunch) or is swallowed whole. Saliva contains anti-bacterial properties and can help to remove plaque by a flushing action[6].
Relationship between diet, dental calculus and periodontal disease in domestic and feral cats in Australia. This belief, however, is a misconception based on a theory that because dogs have descended from wolves they must need the same diet as their wild ancestors.


The rich variety of wild plants and flowers in our meadow hay reflects the natural diet of a rabbit as much as possible. These delicious hays should be supplemented with fresh greens including wild plants, vegetables and herbs and dried herbs and wild plants such as our Coltsfoot, Dandelion, Plantain and Meadow Mix. Variation will also occur between years due to growing conditions including the soil and weather. Never use toothpastes for humans - it includes fluoride and foaming agents which are not designed to be swallowed by pets.
In order for food to mechanically clean the teeth using an abrasive action it has to be chewed properly. Several studies[7] have shown that giving a daily chew does in fact help to keep the teeth clean. In Fascetti A J and Delaney S L (eds),Applied Veterinary Clinical Nutrition, Wiley Blackwell, Chichester: 175-219. In the middle of October, some 5 ½ months later they finally reached their objective. One of the first symptoms may be bad breath but you may also see your pet start to drool, refuse food (or select only soft food) or paw at their mouth. When Peter contacted us asking for support we offered to provide Henry’s favorite food en-route. Periodontal disease or periodontitis is the term given to a group of conditions involving inflammation of the gums, ligaments and other structures surrounding the teeth.
To make sure Henry maintained condition and energy Peter worked closely with our Nutrition Advisors and we sent food parcels to drop points along the way. Young, pregnant or nursing rabbits or those housed outdoors may need more high fibre dry pelleted food.
His father later donated £500 and said we had inspired his son to raise much more with his friends next year.
