Review: Scrumbles Adult and Senior Salmon Complete Dry Food 2020

Back

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

Main Ingredients: salmon, sweet potato, potato, peas, alfalfa and linseed

Type: Complete Dry Dog Food for Adult and Senior Dogs

Price: This worked out on the pricey side at between £5.30 and £5.70 per kilo, compared to other brands on the market, however the quality and nutritional value of their ingredients and doggy (and owner) satisfaction is well worth the price tag.

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 Jack loved Scrumbles Adult and Senior Salmon Complete Dry Food and ate the full bowl in one go, licking the bowl empty and keep going back to see if the bowl had magically been refilled (unfortunately for him, it hadn’t). Jack was very excited to see his food being prepared and the food itself smelt nicely of natural salmon, whilst not being overpowering. The larger button sized biscuits helped to slow Jack down whilst enjoying his meal, meaning that he was less bloated afterwards and felt satisfied after finishing his food. Having a sensitive tummy, Jack sometimes has a rumbly tummy after eating and suffers with slightly runny and smelly stool- we are pleased to report that this was much improved after adapting to Scrumbles for a few days. This freed him up to do even more of his favourite things; running, barking and rolling in muddy ditches.

 

 

Pros:

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

Passed the taste test our eager tester cleaned his bowl in one go!

Larger biscuits helped to slow down our hungry hound, reducing bloating

Cons:

Slightly pricey compared to other brands on the market

Bag sizes could be larger to help reduce delivery costs when buying online, a 15kg bag would be really handy as this would last us a few weeks!
