New food for your pets

Good nutrition is vital for the health, wellbeing and life expectancy of our pets. After careful consideration we’re happy to announce that Dechra SPECIFIC range is now the main pet food Larkmead stocks.

Here are some of the reasons why:

Tried and trusted. The SPECIFIC diet range has been available in Europe for 35 years and has a proven track record. It aims to improve the quality of life of cats and dogs by working closely with vets to provide optimum nutrition.

Consistent. Dechra diets are fixed formula diets. This means that the exact recipe of every bag is the same and that the ingredient list is transparent.

Environmentally-sound. The ingredients are sourced from suppliers who care about the environment and animal welfare. You can be sure that the food you are feeding your pets doesn’t negatively affect the environment, and any animal products used are produced using high welfare standards.

Cost effective. The range’s high quality ingredients ensure high digestibility. This means compared with some other diets which have a lower digestibility, you need to feed less for your pet to get the nutrition they need. This makes the diets more cost effective as a bag will last longer.

High in Omega 3 and 6. The diets are very high in appropriately sourced Omega 3 and 6. These have been clinically proven to have anti-inflammatory effects, proving beneficial in allergic skin conditions, osteoarthritis, kidney disease, heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease and some endocrine conditions.

No artificial colours. There are no artificial colours in the food, so no hypersensitivity side effects.

Clear feeding guidelines.  It’s easy to work out how much of the diet your pet needs.

Range and choice. The range consists of highly palatable, complete appropriate lifestyle diets and also includes scientifically developed therapeutic diets for the management of a variety of clinical conditions.

100% taste back guarantee. If you choose to try the new food, follow the introduction instructions, and your pet does not like it, you can return the food for a full refund.

Loyalty scheme. SPECIFIC run a loyalty scheme that allows you to receive free products after a number of purchases.
