Wilkinson dog treats review



The four-legged Madhouse Mini-testers have been happily wagging their tails because they've been getting lots of lovely things to review lately ! After the Pooch Pack we reviewed last week, they've been enjoying a selection of doggie products from Wilkinson's this week.


First up, Vicky tried one of the little pouches of Chicken with Beef Liver, Vegetables, Rice & Beans. Now, I have to say, as a human, it looks decidedly unappetising. Sophie took the words right out of my mouth by saying "ewww it looks like sick" ! Vicky on the other hand was wagging her tail and champing at the proverbial bit to get her gnashers on it !


I've never seen such a clean bowl ! She may not be able to speak but she's certainly made her thoughts clear.


I decided to try the other variety out on Didou, who was waiting impatiently for his turn. He got to sample Chicken with Tuna, Vegetables, Rice & Beans. As a human, again, it's not a combination that appealed to me - tuna or chicken sounds nice, but together ? Yuck !


Again, Didou couldn't wait to tuck in though and devoured the whole lot barely without drawing a breath ! Definitely a thumbs paws-up from them both ! I thought the sachets were a bit small but the packaging says that these can be given as a treat, after a long walk for example, on top of the dog's normal food.


Speaking of treats, the Madhouse pooches were in for another one, with these Deli Beef Sausages. I was impressed to see that they contain 90% meat.


They couldn't wait to get their paws on these meaty-smelling sausages and wagged their tails, woofing, as I snipped the top off the pack.


They both loved them, wolfing them down and coming back for more ! You get 8 mini sausages per pack so there are plenty to last a week (if you only have one dog).

Wilkinson's isn't the first place I'd have thought of for buying dog treats, but having seen how well they went down, I'd definitely buy more of these.

star rating : 4.5/5

RRP : dog food pouches 66p for 100g,  deli beef sausages £1.29 for 8 (60g)

  4. your dog might love this food but that's only because its pumped full of flavourings and sugars. One look at the label should tell you that it's possibly one of the worst commercial pet foods available. Here are the ingredients:
    Composition
    Cereals (4% Rice in the component with Rice), Meat and Animal Derivatives (4% Chicken in the component with Chicken), Derivatives of Vegetable Origin, Oils and Fats, Vegetables (4% Pea in the component with Pea, 4% Carrot in the component with Carrot), Minerals, Various Sugars

    Additives
    Colourants; Nutritional Additives (kg): Vitamin A 12000iu, Vitamin D3 800iu, Vitamin E 60mg, Iron (as suplhate monohydrate) 80mg, Zinc (as sulphate monohydrate) 40mg, Manganese (as manganese oxide) 25mg, Copper (as cupric sulphate pentahydrate) 13mg, Iodine (as calcium iodate) 1.43mg, Selenium (as sodium selenite) 0.15mg

    Analytical constituents
    Protein 22%
    Crude Fibre 3%
    Fat Content 9%
    Crude Ash 7%

    ---

    Lots of cereals (without specifying the majority of them - so likely to be whatever's cheaper at production, often maize), very little meat (if I'm reading it right then they're saying the "meat" parts are only 4% chicken - so overall it's even less than that. Plus being "chicken" rather than "chicken meal", it'll be even less than 4% after the moisture is lost in processing), sugar added (probably for taste as it doesn't sound that appetising!), doesn't say that the colourants are natural, not something I would even feed my worst enemy.
