What are the ingredients in your food?
Our food is made from raw meat, ground bone, offal, seasonal vegetables and a dash of superfoods.
At Poppy’s Picnic we use only fresh, human-quality ingredients, sourced from local, vetted suppliers. Using 100% natural ingredients means our raw food may vary in colour and texture from batch to batch and our commitment to natural ingredients means we won’t even consider using artificial colours or preservatives just to make every batch consistent.
We add vegetables and fruit to provide important dietary fibre and energy boosting carbohydrates. We add parsley to all our meals as it’s a great source of Vitamin C.
We add flaxseed oil as it provides a slow-release energy source which is easy for dogs to digest. It is also a good source of Omega-6 and one of the few vegetable sources that contains Omega-3.
We add ground bone as in order to be optimally healthy, your dog’s body requires nutrients (specifically calcium and phosphorus) provided by bones derived primarily from beef, lamb, chicken and turkey.
We use once-washed green lamb tripe in our food as it is full of digestive enzymes and beneficial bacteria that help your dog digest its food. Not only is tripe loaded with digestive enzymes and probiotics, it has the perfect ratio of calcium to phosphorus – 1:1. Green tripe also contains the essential fatty acids, Linoleic and Linolenic, in their recommended proportions.
What we do not use:
We do not use pork in our fresh meals as it’s more difficult for animals to digest. Nor do we add sugar, cheap bulking agents (grains and cereals), dairy products or eggs. We also do not use wheat gluten which is associated with intolerances and allergies.
Our labelling is clear and simple, so you know exactly what you are feeding your best friend.
