Burgess Supadog Dog Food

Puppies, adult dogs and senior dogs require different nutrient levels and food portions - key to growth, development and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Our Burgess Supadog range can support all of this and more, ensuring your pets receive the proteins, fats and carbohydrates necessary for each life stage and breed. Supadog has over 30 years’ heritage looking after the nutrition of dogs. Today, Supadog is made in our Yorkshire mill with quality ingredients for happy and healthy dogs.

They say that dogs are man’s best friend, but we know, whether they’re Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Beagles or Huskies, dogs can be good companions for anyone. Loving and playful animals, they enjoy lots of attention and belly rubs, and of course, chasing after a ball, frisbee or toy. Going on walks and being let off their leads to explore, play and meet other dogs can also bring them much delight, as does a comfy dog bed, and a healthy diet that helps meet their dietary requirements.

Though many people think that puppies and dogs are carnivores, they are in fact omnivores, which means they can eat both meat and plant-based foods. A puppy’s developing body needs protein, fats and carbohydrates to help support growing muscles and developing bones and to give them energy. In comparison, older dogs may be less active requiring a lighter diet or support for their joints. Due to the variation in nutritional requirements, we created the Burgess Supadog range which contains specially formulated recipes for dogs in different life stages. This ensures that each and every dog receives the vital vitamins, minerals and protein to help support their bones, muscles and skin health, among other important functions.

Understanding dog digestion

  • Your dog has several salivary glands located around the jaw and mouth. These glands’ function is to help lubricating the passage of food to the stomach.
  • The oesophagus is a muscular tube that propels the food, after swallowing, from the mouth into the stomach.
  • Digestion begins in the stomach, a thick-walled, muscular organ where food can be stored long enough to be mixed with gastric juices. These juices are mucoid, highly acidic, and contain pepsin (a protein-digesting enzyme) and gastrin (a hormone that controls the digestive process via feedback mechanisms).
  • Our dogs’ stomachs are adapted to accept large quantities of food in any single session. Their stomach can create extra space by relaxing the muscular fibres in its walls and “unfolding” into a large reservoir where the food is churned and mixed before it is passed through the final part of the stomach (the pylorus) into the small intestine. The partially digested food, combined with gastric juices, is called chyme.
  • Chyme enters the small intestine. This is where further digestion takes place and most of the nutrients are absorbed. The small intestine is comprised of three segments – the duodenum, ileum and jejunum. Each has a slightly different structure and role, but their overall function is to complete digestion so that absorption can occur.
