Lily's Kitchen Dog Food Review

Lily's Kitchen Dog Food Review

Lily's Kitchen is a very popular brand. We will be reviewing a few recipes to give you a balanced opinion on the brand. 

Carbs range anywhere from 44% to 49%, with a whopping 29% sweet potato, pea protein, and other fillers.

At £90+, the amount of filler is way too much. If a food is expensive, you need to check you're getting your money's worth. On this occasion, you are not getting a good deal. It's funny, because they say ''no fillers'' on the front of the bag. Really bad!

They also have an organic range. Which you would think it's better than the others, but it isn't: 

One would think that at £60 per 10kg of premium food you would not get ''organic rice, organic rice protein or organic barley''. We would say this is unforgivable. Whilst we believe no dog food should contain rice or barley, premium dog food should definitely not contain these very cheap fillers. 

''Nutritional yeast'', ''potato protein''? These are very questionable ingredients for the price tag you are paying.

As you can see, the protein content is rather low, and the carbs are quite high. Not good for the money. 

Lily's Kitchen was acquired by Nestle (yes, the chocolate company), and have suffered serious a serious watering down of the brand and ingredients. 

A premium brand should give you value for money. There are much better options for the money. Don't get fooled!
