Review: Scrumbles Complete Dog Food: Chicken with Carrot & Green Beans

Back

Overall Rating 4.5/5

Main ingredients: Chicken, Carrots, Green Beans, Minerals and Slippery Elm Bark

Type: Complete Wet Dog Food for Puppies and Dogs (3 months and over)

Price: This worked out at between £13.50 and £12.83 (on subscription) for a week's supply (depending on the size of your dog), which is more than other brands on the market, however the quality and nutritional value of their ingredients, as well as dog and owner satisfaction (more pick up-able doggy do's) means that overall this represents good value for money.

USP: First for gut health and containing high quality animal protein and proper ingredients, cutting out all of the junk as well as making great ethical commitments to recyclable packaging with recipes made in the UK.

The Good Kennel Guide's Verdict:

Our taste tester loved Scrumbles Complete Wet Dog Food in Chicken, Carrot and Green Bean flavour. The food itself smells pleasant and is certainly enticing to dogs, being a lover of strong flavours our tester can sometimes turn his nose up at chicken flavoured food. However, he was very interested in this offering and was excited to receive the food, eating the whole bowl in a single sitting, without losing interest at all. The food looks substantial and as a dog owner you feel like you are doing right by your dog in giving them a quality and meaty meal, whilst also knowing the great nutritional value of the food. 

Pros:

Great for gut health which means less flatulence and pick-up-able poo

Passed the taste (and smell) test pleasing our doggy tester, without overpowering the owner

Nice, attractive meaty consistency- this food feels fresh! and your dog will love seeing their food coming out of the fridge (where they know all of the best food is stored!)

Cons:

Slightly more expensive than some brands on the market, though this is a more premium product- and this is well worth it given the comfort and additional support to gut health and general health that it provides

Packet sizes are done on roughly a week by week basis (depending upon the size of your dog), which makes a lot of sense and makes it easier to work our portion sizes according to your dog's daily requirements. The small packet sizes reflect the fresh nature of the food which means that this food might be slightly less suitable for buying in bulk (unless you have a number of dogs to accomodate).

Though the food does contain green beans, you couldn't see visible evidence of this in the food itself, though you could see the carrots were present in the bowl.
