don't just take our word for it

  • "Recommended the Angus Beef Elite"

    December 2022, we had a vizsla who would barely eat. I was used to dogs that were greedy but Vinnie was the complete opposite and it was becoming a struggle with keeping weight on him.

    Id been going to pampered pets for treats but I asked about food one day and was recommended the Angus Beef Elite… within a week Vinnie was excited for breakfast/dinner and since then (3 months on) we have managed to get him to gain 2kg which was getting desperately needed.

    I can’t thank them enough for their help/recommendations! Not to mention prior to feeding the beef elite, vinnie was wired to the moon on grains, his temperament has totally shifted, he has so much more self control when we are out and about and I put that down to the food.

  • "I am genuinely happy that he is getting the nutrition he needs."

    My lab puppy was having issues with his bowels (I genuinely think because of his food provided by the breeder). After a chat with a lovely lady in the shop, she recommended highland hounds which has made the biggest difference to his stools and I am genuinely happy that he is getting the nutrition he needs.

    Buddy loves it so much that he picked all the highland hound pieces of kibble and left the original kibble in the bowl

  • "The best available."

    Great staff in Inverness, very knowledgeable and helpful. The highland hounds food is the best available. Our 18 month old cocker spaniel loves it so much. We tried to ween him off his previous food but he just threw the old food out of the bowl.

    Tremendous product and would highly recommend it and pampered pets to anyone.

  • "Grain Free Dry Food"

    Bella had a severe case of gastric enteritis and was in the Dick Vets for a week. Her stomach was so tender when she came out and only managing rice and chicken.

    I discovered your Grain Free dry food through my sister’s dog. Bella manages it well and loves it and no gastro issues since. Hope we can get this dog food down in Edinburgh soon.
