Our customers had this to say…
“We were recommended this by the breeder we bought our Labrador Retriever puppy from. We are currently on the large breed the beginning and he loves it! His coat is soooo shiny, he wolfs it down, and is always so excited for meal times.“
– Isabel S.
I need to hide the bowl
“My Staffordshire Bull Terrier absolutely loves the Essential Highland Living and Superior Living. In addition to having a sensitive stomach and being a fart machine she also had issues with her nails splitting and cracking so I had to give her additional supplements in the past. When I switched her to this food I noticed a visible improvement and stopped having to give her supplements. Her stomach and nails are doing much better and she always chomps down her food in seconds. I can’t recommend them enough.”
– Bart G.
Best food available!!
“Absolutely fabulous food, and I would never feed my working cocker on anything else. He loves the stuff, and despite having had issues with upset stomachs on various other foods, he has never had a single issue since switching to this stuff. His energy levels are incredible, and his coat is beautiful and shiny, and not a hint of bad breath either! Wish I had tried it sooner!”
– Rob H.
“We are now two months in after switching to Essential Foods and our 18 month old Golden Retriever is absolutely thriving on Essential Superior Living. Her coat is beautifully soft and shiny, her weight is perfect (she is very fit) and she absolutely loves it. She has gone from a dog who was barely interested in her food at meal times to being really eager when it is time for her food. Her energy levels throughout the day have also settled, and the manic, over-excited moments she used to have are happening far less. She is generally a lot more calmer. If I could give more stars then I would!”
“Changed to Essential foods after reading-up about nutrition, visiting web discussions and the allaboutdogfood site. We haven’t regretted the decision at all, our dog is very healthy and always receives compliments about her shiny coat, so we fully recommend this product.”
– Mr Haylock
“Fantastic value. The nutrition and ingredients seem the best I can find in this price range or similar and it has a wonderful packaging, range and website too. My Giant Schnauzer puppy loves it and he is currently using The Beginning Large Breed.”
Great for healthy puppies and beyond
“I was told that the puppy food we were feeding our Doberman was only from chicken derivatives and not from actual meat and was horrified. I was on a mission to find something good for her and after many searches and comparisons I came across Essentials and it shone out as one of the best. I am not sorry, we thought our puppy looked great but after being on the large breed puppy she shines with health and she absolutely loves it too. Would recommend to anyone who wants something fantastic for their best friend."
So glad we found this food!!
“We discovered this food after a Swedish breeder recommended it to us. We were looking for a high quality, natural product and Essentials fitted that bill. Our dogs have never looked better, coat condition and texture is at a premium. Physical joint and bone health also appears to be wonderful. Older dogs who have been on joint supplements and oils for years havent needed them. Also we have found Essentials creates the perfect stool, my vet was very impressed, lovely and firm and good colour too."
– Sammy C.
“Don’t hesitate! This dog food is the real deal. We switched our Cockapoo (throwback so looks like a cocker spaniel and has the energy levels of one!) to Essential STAMINA (small size) and he has never looked back. His coat is fuller and more shiny, and he is now the ideal weight (previously he was underweight). Even the vet commented how perfect his weight was. Would whole heartedly recommend this food!”
– Ryan M.
CHANGED OUR LIFE
“The first two years of my dog’s life have been a constant struggle to get him interested in any food. Completely disinterested, always visible ribs and the worst poos. We tried everything. Posh, cheap, wet, dry, raw, home cooked. The vet was at a loss as he was healthy despite it all. The fussiest dog ever. So much money, food and time wasted. Made the switch to you two months ago and we will never go back. He eats every last bite, has put on the perfect amount of weight and it’s just such a relief. Thank you. Honestly, has changed our life and removed a huge pile of worry.”
