When we were contacted by AniForte to see if we would like to review some of their products, the tagline of ‘For Naturally Healthy Pets‘ drew us in as this is something that Mum likes to see in our food and treats.
We had never heard of the company before so decided to do a little research. AniForte describe themselves as:
A family run natural pet brand based in Germany. We believe nature has all the answers to our pets’ health problems. Our range consists of supplements and foods that are 100% natural. We produce products for dogs, cats and horses with ingredients that are free from additives, chemicals and artificial flavourings.
A German company you say? Perfect for us German Dachshunds we thought! We were sent an impressive bundle of goodies which included some tins of their PureNature Country Chicken, Denta Clean & Care Sticks , Coconut Oil, Carotene Wonder and Omega 3 Extract
First up we took a look at the Denta Clean & Care Sticks – these are grain-free and work safely against plaque and hinder build- up. They clean & care for teeth and gums, help with bad breath and support white teeth – so even us pooches can have a Simon Cowell-esque white smile! We didn’t manage to get a shot of me tasting one of these as it went down pretty well but I can say they taste good!
Before the products were sent to us for testing & review we were asked if either Alan or myself have any ailments that we were concerned about. It just so happens my little chocolate brother suffers from seasonal alopecia and slightly dry skin, especially in the Winter months. AniForte were brilliant, asking us questions and then went away to speak to their nutritionist to see what would be the best supplements for Alan to try.
They came back with the following – Coconut Oil, Carotene Wonder and Omega 3 Extract. All of us already have coconut oil added to our breakfast each morning so we knew this would go down well but the little fella was definitely pleased to try something else, anything to help with his baldy patches!
He was especially taken with the Omega-3 Extract – most likely because this smelt fishy, which is one of our favourite suppers! It is a pure natural product with all the nutrients of fresh fish, containing 12 vitamins, 30 minerals and trace elements, omega-3, Q-10 and all essential amino acids. Regular use also has a positive effect on the skin and coat, immune system and cardiovascular system.
He was then cracking into the tub of Carotene Wonder which is a pure, natural, finely ground carrot granulate made from the best carrots. This is rich in carotene, vitamins and trace elements, essential substances that support a healthy coat, good pigmentation, and contribute to immunity, vision, organ metabolism, blood and cell regeneration.
I told Alan he should definitely tuck into this as apparently eating lots of carrots helps to see in the dark however I’m not sure he was convinced, clever sausage!! I think he was more concerned he may turn into the Easter Bunny…
Alan has only been on these supplements for a short time so we cannot comment whether they have had any dramatic effects on his coat. However he does seem to like them, which is great as he can be such a fussy eater, also because they are 100% natural, this makes our Mum happy!
Soon I was impatient to pull the ring opener on a tin of the PureNature Country Chicken, this sounded right up my street! This is natural dog food with 88% meat, single protein and complete feed. Grain-free and without artificial additives such as colouring, flavourings and preservatives – which is perfect, especially for Alan, as Mum tends to keep him on grain-free food due to his coat issues.
The AniForte PureNature food is a complete feed for dogs and is super premium quality, manufactured according to food standards. They use a lot of fresh meat, heart and healthy offal, which are high quality and cooked gently. Additionally, all AniForte PureNature recipes contain a pure natural extra portion of Omega-3 extract to support the normal cardiovascular system. Completely natural vitamins and minerals are added to create a perfect super premium complete feed for your pet – sounds nutritious!
The other flavours that the PetNature food comes in are: Country Beef, Wild Forest, Farms Lamb, Wild Buffalo – the latter sounding like something we would definitely love to try!
More importantly – the Taste Test!
Lets just say Mum had to retake these shots a few times as we devoured our portions in record time!
It was so yummy in fact, that our Nanny commented on how delicious it smelt and that even she fancied giving it a go!
However we weren’t sure we wanted to share it with her, even little Alan was checking how much was left in my bowl – cheeky boy!
But I’m a generous sausage and extended the Taste Test to my pals Rodney & Harvey – it sure met their approval too!
So all in all we are so far impressed with the AniForte products we have, the food especially as we do enjoy very tasty, natural dinners. If you would like to try some for yourself, please head over to the AniForte website and read all about their fab products HERE
Dach’s all for now – off to stash my PureNature food in a secret location…
