No meat meals or grains used. Our high fresh meat content means your pets get exceptional nutritional values vs. mass-branded pet foods.


Unique BOF Formulation

Behavioural Optimising Food (BOF) is the principle of developing food to match your dog’s or cat’s natural diet. It keeps the blood sugar levels stable throughout the day and enhances digestibility for more nutrients to be absorbed. <READ MORE>

I have tried dozens of different foods over the years for the dogs but none have come close to the quality of essential. For the price there is nothing better!


Amazing food!! Really happy with Essential food. It uses high quality ingredients, no artificial preservatives, flavourings or colourings and is not filled to the brim with cheap cereal filler like a lot of other "premium" well known dry dog food. The price is great too!


So glad to have found the essential range - it is the only dry food my dog will eat unadulterated. He loves it and I love the fact I no longer have to worry about him not eating enough!


Amazing customer service and the product is wonderful. My dog's coat is thick and shiny and it's the only dry food he won't turn his nose up at.


We made the switch to Essentials over a year ago and would not change... excellent foods, fast delivery, personal service. Our dog loves the kibbles and any treats we buy. Great all round!
