Health and Nutrition
a practising veterinary Surgeon, John Burns saw many
family pets with common problems such as itching and
excessive scratching, loose motions, stiffness, bad
breath and body odour.
John says "'Many
owners think that if their pet seems healthy there is
no need to feed a good-quality food.
"It is true that some pets (and
humans) seem capable of thriving on poor quality food
but this is the exception, not the rule. Many pet owners
do not recognise symptoms of underlying health problems
but accept them as normal conditions.
"As a practising
Veterinary Surgeon and acupuncturist I was convinced
that poor diet was the root cause of all these and more.
In the 1980s I recommended a homemade
food for dogs and cats based on brown rice, and then
developed Burns Real Food using similar ingredients
to my home made recipe.
"As the name implies, Burns Real
Food is just that; a simple food which is intended to
allow the body to function as it should. Burns is not
intended to intervene in order to alter the normal metabolism
of the body. The aim is to stand back and let the body
get on with what it does best; to maintain the organ
"It worked then, and twenty
years later it’s still the natural choice for
dogs and cats of all ages."
