Canagan Dog Food Review

Miller has been eating well this month! Miller is our cocker spaniel, and a much loved member of our family. Miller has probably played a supporting role on the blog but really stepped up to a feature part eagerly!
Miller was offered the opportunity to review Canagan Dog Food.

Canagan is the first British made grain free dog food.
As a grain free it means a dog won't suffer any grain related allergies.
How is this achieved? Well oddly, although not to anyone who has weaned babies, with Sweet Potatoes.
Sweet potatoes offer an alternative to grains as they provide a good source of soluble fibre, a slow, steady release of energy, and are packed full of vitamins and antioxidants.

Having weaned three babies with sweet potato as the only commonly loved food it was no surprise that Miller loved Canagan.

Oddly, the day it was delivered Miller took the same protective stance toward the bag as the cats do to theirs. This in itself was odd- Miller has never been particularly attached to food in the past.
We had to go out and when we returned a couple of hours later he was still guarding the food, and was even happy to pose with the food- and adon a baby's bib!

Over the month Miller's been testing the food, he has remained excited at meal times, he has maintained his health and energy, and has remained on usual meal portions. Fortunately, despite the sweet potato content none of the children showed any leaning towards it.

For every consideration we'd have for a dog food for Miller, this ticked our list. I was really pleased to see Miller looking forward to meals as with some in the past you have felt tempted, given his reaction, to add milk. This hasn't even crossed our minds.


So, in summary Canagan is:
  • Closer to a dog's ancestral diet
  • Grain free
  • High meat content
  • Over 60% nutritious animal ingredients
  • Contains sweet potato, more digestible than grains with a low GI (Glycaemic Index) for a slower release of energy
  • Highly palatable
  • Free of artificial colourings and flavourings
  • Preserved naturally
  • Free of dairy, genetically modified ingredients and growth hormones
  • Is proudly made in Great Britain
  • Contains a host of botanicals with a wide range of therapeutic properties
Of the points you can imagine we could appreciate- we did, additionally we did appreciate those which we can only take on good faith- Miller did enjoy the food, unlike other dog foods he was excited when the cupboard door was opened. Miller remained full of energy and in high spirits, he digested it well with no problems (as he has had with some food in the past).

We would recommend this dog food, it is a high quality food, and best of all, as a differentiator you are 'buying British'.

Canagan is available in a variety of sizes from Pets Corner both online and at local stores.

  1. A grain free food is good for the health of the dogs because there is a big quantity of carbohydrates in the grain which is very harmful for any pet.

  4. Puppies are playful and high-spirited but grow up to be calm and dignified adult dogs. The breed is very good with children and usually peaceful with other pets. the dogtor online
