Dogs aren’t, as is often believed, classed as carnivores. They’re actually omnivores, which means they benefit from a diet that contains both animal and plant-based foods.

A healthy diet for an adult dog should contain good-quality meat or fish for protein, supplemented with vegetable proteins such as soya, grains or peas. And, as your dog goes through different life stages, their nutrition needs change. A puppy needs a different blend of nutrients compared to an adult or senior dog.

That’s why, if you’ve ever wondered ‘Can puppies eat adult dog food?’ or ‘Can adult dogs eat puppy food?’, the answer is – yes, they can, but nutritionally, it’s not the best option.

Today, high-quality dog food is created using the latest in nutritional science to calculate the correct balance of vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates and fats that your dog needs throughout their life – first as a puppy, as an adult and then as a senior.

The best dog food for adult dogs is naturally rich in protein for good muscle maintenance and contains essential fatty acids to help nourish their coat and maintain healthy eyes.

All Burgess dog food, such as the classic Burgess Supadog range, is a complete food. This means, whatever variety you choose for your dog, it will contain all the nutrients they need in the correct balance.
