"Trying to get five-year-old De Niro to eat his dinner used to be really difficult and he regularly had diarrhoea and sickness. After a full allergy test, we were shocked to find that he is allergic to all meat proteins except venison. Luckily, we came across Country Hunter Venison Nuggets! They couldn’t be simpler to use and the fact that they are a complete meal and don’t require additional ingredients is fantastic. Most importantly, De Niro and our other dog Bella absolutely love them! Now, De Niro is like a different dog. He’s full of energy, so much happier, and his coat is so lovely and soft and shiny. He just looks so much healthier and for the first time in his life, he actually gets excited at mealtimes!"
"Tip was living as a stray in a recycling tip when he was lucky enough to be adopted by his lovely owner Lellie. Now, he lives at home with his fur brothers and sisters where he naps, plays, and eats Natures Menu all day long! Because he wasn’t getting proper nourishment living as a stray, little Tip developed sensitivity to cheaper foods and treats with poor quality ingredients. His vet recommended Natures Menu thanks to its proper meat content with no added fillers or nasties. Now, Tip has no more stomach pains and a much healthier coat and teeth."
"Seven-year-old rescue dog Hatice has been eating Natures Menu since I adopted her at seven months. I did lots of raw food research beforehand and went with Natures Menu because it was widely available and had products to suit lots of different tastes and lifestyles. She was very skinny when she arrived, but I was able to adjust everything to her needs and now her weight management is easy. When Hatice developed a type of skin cancer, her diet and strong immune system helped her keep fighting through two surgeries – which she handled much better than me! Now, she’s perfectly healthy and the vet is really happy with her condition. Her hair is shiny and strong, and she has beautiful, white teeth with no tartar at all."
"It used to be a struggle to get 15-month-old Ziggi to eat. Since incorporating Natures Menu into his diet, I have noticed that his feeding habits have become much more reliable Now, as soon as it’s time to eat, Ziggi’s nose is twitching and he’s excited to delve into his nutritious and deliciously meaty food Feeding time is now a breeze, and I can sit back and relax knowing that Ziggi is getting adequate nutrition and clearing his plate."
"Before we started him on Natures Menu, ten-year-old Romeo kept getting terrible acne on his face and body and red itchy patches on his belly. Within a few weeks, it had all cleared up and has never returned. His coat is soft and glossy, and his overall health is amazing. He’s also got the cleanest teeth and freshest breath – even the vet is amazed by his shiny smile! Right up until his retirement last year, Romeo was an award-winning blood donor and therapy dog, and I think a lot of this is down to his nutrition. Natures Menu helps him recover and keeps his joints in the best condition they can be in. I wouldn’t feed him anything else!"
"Jack has been fed a raw Natures Menu diet since he was eight weeks old – he has always been an active dog and requires the best when it comes to a healthy diet. Competing in Heelwork to Music for the last seven years, Jack secured second place at Crufts 2022 - his shiny coat, white teeth and bright eyes enabled him to look fresh and healthy on the winning podium! I love that the Natures Menu Free Flow range contains all natural ingredients, meaning big smiles all round for both Jack and I."
"Hero’s health has considerably improved since switching to a raw Natures Menu diet. Hero always struggled to gain weight, but he now finishes all meals and has gained a healthy amount of weight. We’ve also noticed a dramatic change to his coat – it is much shinier, and he is moulting much less than he did on his previous diet. Hero is much happier, healthier and living his life to the fullest thanks to the fantastic benefits of Natures Menu."
"Our two rescue dogs, Woody and Red, came to us in November 2020 aged 15 and 13 years. They were in a very sorry and starved state! Red’s lower jaw had disintegrated due to neglected tooth decay and the vet was unsure whether they were strong enough to pull through - we were told that the following 48 hours after their rescue was critical. Right from day one, we made sure that the boys were fed a raw diet of the Natures Menu Free Flow range. The nutritional and natural qualities of the raw food had a huge impact on their recovery back to good health. Both of their coats are now shiny and beautifully long – no longer dull and brittle! Their stools are never loose, and they never suffer from painful flatulence. It really has been incredible to see such an amazing transformation!"
"Our 10-year-old Belle has loved Natures Menu ever since she was a pup. The idea of feeding Belle a raw diet really appealed to us as we liked that we could control every ingredient that she was eating, ensuring a balanced and nutritious diet. We’ve been feeding Belle a Natures Menu diet since she was 8-weeks-old and she loves it to this day. Belle’s coat is so glossy and her general wellbeing is fantastic – she honestly loves every bite!"
"Tyler had always been prone to having an upset stomach - he never used to show much interest in food. My other Spaniel, Maya, always had wet tear stains. I decided to try raw but felt out of my depth as I had limited knowledge on how to feed a balanced raw diet. After some research, I discovered the Country Hunter Raw Nuggets - it really makes raw feeding as simple as pour, thaw and feed. Now we have clean bowls every mealtime and both dogs get excited for their dinners. Maya no longer has wet tear stains and both dogs are maintaining a healthy weight. When first choosing to feed raw, I didn’t realise that Cocker Spaniels can be prone to struvite bladder stones, sadly Tyler had to have surgery last year – it’s now even more important that Tyler is fed a raw diet to help manage his condition!"
"Our Otis is four and a half months old. His breeder fed him Country Hunter Raw Frozen Nuggets since he was weaned, so we knew a raw diet suited him from day one and decided to stick with it. I’m often amazed at how glossy his coat is and how healthy his digestive system is - he has perfect poos and is rarely ever windy. Otis loves the Raw Frozen Nuggets, and his weight has been very easy to maintain. We’re so excited to try more from the range!"
"Sherlock is a seven-year-old rescue dog whose life has been transformed by a Natures Menu diet. When we rescued Sherlock, he had a limp and had dandruff in his coat. We chose to transition Sherlock onto a Natures Menu diet, firstly, due to the great quality of food, and secondly, because Natures Menu is a British, family-run business, which really appealed to us. Sherlock and our other furry friend loved the food and we have fed them Natures Menu ever since. Through a routine of regular exercise and a Natures Menu products, Sherlock’s limp has completely disappeared and his coat is looking glossier and healthier than ever!"
"When we first got Arwen, she was fed 50/50 raw and kibble. When we tried her on a full kibble diet, she came out in a ‘dally rash’, which is a type of bacterial folliculitis seen exclusively in Dalmatians. We researched and found that a fully raw diet may help her, so we decided to transition. Natures Menu was the best option for Arwen as the ingredients were simple and offal-free. After the change, we noticed that her skin and coat began to clear and her bowel habits improved considerably. A Natures Menu diet has also helped maintain Arwen’s healthy and energetic lifestyle!"
"Rufus used to be such a fussy eater and had frequent digestion troubles when on his old diet. We spoke to some fellow dog owners on our walks and they mentioned that a raw diet may be beneficial. We researched and decided to try Rufus on Natures Menu food. Since giving Rufus his first bowl, we haven’t looked back! Rufus is no longer a fussy eater and he finishes his bowl within minutes. He will now even remind us to feed him at the same time each morning! His teeth have also benefitted from Natures Menu chews and bones, making them a lot cleaner. When we are out on walks people comment on how well Rufus looks. A raw Natures Menu diet has really transformed Rufus’ wellbeing."
"We did a lot of research on diet before getting Smudge, so we always knew we would feed raw. He is now 16-months-old and has been fed Natures Menu since he was just eight-weeks. We feed him all flavours of the Country Hunter Nuggets – they are so simple to prepare and we don’t have to worry as they include all the vital nutrients he could need. Smudge also can’t get enough of the raw frozen treats – they’re never around for long! He has such a silky-smooth coat, along with pearly teeth and no bad breath. He has great overall health and enough energy to keep us all on our toes!"
"Joy is 3 years old and is a mix of Shih Tzu, Jack Russell, Chihuahua and Lhasa Aspo. Over a year ago, Joy became very ill, he would vomit 7-8 times a day and suffered from diarrhoea. We had many vet visits and eventually, blood test results showed that Joy suffered from mild Pancreatitis and IBD. Joy is also allergic to chicken, beef and lamb. I’d heard many dog parents speaking about the benefits of raw food, so decided to give the frozen Country Hunter Turkey Nuggets a go. Joy is known for being a picky eater but to my amazement he ate his first raw meal in seconds and he didn’t get sick after eating! We haven’t looked back since. Joy no longer vomits and he also has firm stools, plus, it has helped his anal gland problems too. We’re very grateful for Natures Menu!"
"Bodhi is a mixed breed rescue dog who we believe to be around 2 years of age. When he arrived in our family, he was fed various types of dog food but refused it all. My son's dog was fed Natures Menu, so we decided to give it a go too. Since feeding a raw Natures Menu diet, I have noticed a considerable change in Bodhi’s weight and muscle mass. He was only 18kg when we got him in March 2021 but he is now a healthy 25kg. His coat was dry and rough but now it is sleek and shiny and feels really soft. An added bonus is how small and firm his stools are now and so easy to pick up! All these positive changes have made a huge difference to Bodhi’s wellbeing."
"Eight-year-old Harry used to be a fussy eater until I discovered Natures Menu food. Harry has always been on a raw diet due to the advice of his breeder, however I struggled to find a raw supplier that he enjoyed. Our veterinary clinic recommended Natures Menu and Harry loved it instantly! Since feeding Harry his raw Natures Menu food, he eats a full bowl of food and has continued to be his energetic self. We would never consider switching his diet!"
"As puppies, Harry and Duke often refused their meals - it was a nightmare! I started to look for alternatives and Natures Menu was the clear choice, due to the outstanding variety of food options. Now 14-months-old, the two brothers don’t leave a single thing and they absolutely love their food - their fur also feels and looks amazing. These changes have made a huge difference to Harry and Duke’s lives and they’re now happier than ever!"
"Prior to feeding raw, we spent a lot of money at the vet as Buddy suffered from a recurrent anal gland issue. Due to these complications, we decided to take the plunge and look into raw feeding and we chose Natures Menu as the customer services team were so helpful! There are lots of single protein options available, which ensures Buddy gets plenty of variety in his diet. We feed Buddy the Country Hunter Frozen Nuggets and he enjoys all of the different flavours. Buddy is now 22 months old and thriving – he hasn’t had an issue with his anal glands since, his coat is shinier, and he is also happier in himself. It’s the best thing we ever did for him!"
"Lily has had a fair few health troubles throughout her 7 years. From the age of 1, Lily started suffering from seizures – the pre cursor to which was always an upset tummy and vomiting. She would vomit, go off her food and ended up having stomach lining tablets and an anti-sickness injection. I then discovered Natures Menu raw dog food! Lily loves the food and her tummy is now fine. I feel so much more relaxed now that she is happy and healthy. After trying so many different foods, natural remedies and different mealtimes, it was such a relief to see her health drastically improve."
"3-year-old Dexter has been on a Natures Menu raw diet since we got him from the breeders. He’s always been happy, healthy and thoroughly enjoys his food. He’s always super excited to eat his meals and the raw food keeps his teeth sparkling white and his poos regular and solid. He is one happy dog and I’m one happy dog mummy!"
"Raven’s health and wellbeing has drastically improved since switching to a Natures Menu diet. Raven used to refuse his food and would often suffer with terrible reflux and stomach gurgles, so we knew we had to make a change. After speaking to our veterinary practitioner, he advised that we try Raven on Natures Menu. The results have been amazing! Raven now can’t wait to tuck into his food and his digestion is better than ever – he’s one happy dog!"
"Diesel’s health has been amazing since switching to a Natures Menu diet. He loves to run and play and after transitioning onto the Country Hunter range, he can run all day – his fitness levels are through the roof! I have also noticed a great improvement in the appearance of his coat and teeth; they are constantly shining. I chose Natures Menu because it is simply the healthiest choice for my boy, I would feed him nothing else and I 100% recommend it to all dog owners."
"Before we switched to Natures Menu, our rough-coated Jack Russell, Badger, would often leave his food half-eaten, or he simply wouldn’t want to eat at all. This was worrying and we knew we had to make a food change for him and our Whippet, Bertie. Now on a Natures Menu diet, we have empty bowls within about 10 seconds and Badger hasn’t left a bowl untouched since. Not only do both our boys love the food, they are also full of energy, have shiny, glossy coats and are so content. Switching to Natures Menu was the best thing we’ve done for Bertie and Badger!"
"I have three lovely dogs with very different needs. My Jack Russell, Jinty, has pancreatitis and thrives on your Country Hunter nuggets (4% fat). Kheva, my Pyrenean Sheepdog has a very high metabolism so needs plenty of tripe to keep her going. And Rumour, my Miniature American Shepherd loves to chew. Marrow bones, trachea and ribs are a huge hit with him."
"I have noticed so many benefits since switching my two-year-old Labrador, Winston, onto a raw diet. Not only has he maintained a beautiful coat but the raw diet has helped me to manage his weight and I instantly saw a noticeable and positive difference to his poos too! When we take Winston to the vets for check-ups, they comment on his teeth, coat and body being in the perfect condition – it makes me feel so proud. When we got Leo, our six-month-old Labrador, he had been weaned onto raw by the breeder, and it was a no brainer for us to continue this diet. Similarly, he is in fantastic condition and has such a soft coat!"
"Crumble was the world’s fussiest eater and we tried her on absolutely everything. It wasn’t until she tried Natures Menu raw food that she actually started to eat a full meal. The ability to order online is fuss-free and makes my life much easier too!"
"This is my three-year-old Tibetan Terrier, Otis. He used to be fed a dry diet but completely lost his appetite, had very itchy skin and his poo was extremely runny. 2 years later and feeding Natures Menu, Otis is the picture of health. He is not itchy at all now, has perfect solid poo and adores his food."
"We rescued Rocky from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. He has a very sensitive stomach and itchy skin, which made him poorly for days. We put him on Natures Menu and he’s been doing much better. He loves the raw chews, especially the marrow bone."
"I’ve owned several Siamese cats. They all came to me weaned onto complete dry food and I began immediately to transition them onto Nature Menu. They’ve lived their whole lives on a raw diet ever since. Thea and Tabitha are aged 23 and 17. Tabitha has never been to the vets except to be spayed, and Thea only in the last year for a jab to ease old-age stiffness in her legs. We lost two others last year, Sisko at 22 years old and Mimms at 27. Sisko loved a chicken wing and would drag it between his front legs like a lion with a gazelle, growling over his prize, before scoffing the lot. A natural diet is just the best way to give both cats and dogs a long, happy, healthy life."
"My 6-year-old chocolate Labrador, Scout, is my first dog and my best friend. I was looking for a new diet for Scout in the hope of improving his overall health when I heard about raw feeding and its benefits. I cannot believe the difference Natures Menu has made to Scout. He’s had virtually no allergic reactions at all, his skin has cleared up completely and his coat is super shiny."
"We’ve been feeding our Great Dane, Elvis, with Natures Menu for 8 years and it has proven to be the best products we have ever used. It’s given him strength, energy and a wonderful physique. Elvis is a happy, health pet who is always being photographed by visitors and is truly the best advert for Natures Menu."
"When my 10-year-old Jack Russell, Jack, was diagnosed with pancreatitis my vet advised a low-fat diet. I did a lot of research and decided on Natures Menu raw food. I ordered some and we have never looked back! Jack is a different dog. He used to be quite lazy - not anymore! It’s like having a puppy, so energetic and full of life. And his skin condition has cleared up too. Thank you Natures Menu."
“Born in Cyprus, before we got her, Flossie lived in the wild for several months which affected her digestion. My usual dog food wasn’t helping her which is what prompted me to switch to raw. Already a fan of Natures Menu treats, I investigated their range further to discover Country Hunter Raw Nuggets. Made from premium quality meat with no artificial colours or preservatives and combined with various superfoods - it sounded perfect for Flossie. I transitioned her diet gradually with astonishing results. She now looks so fit and well. Today people regularly comment on her glossy coat and white teeth.”
"Our ancient little cat Fluffy purred her way comfortably to the eternal cat home recently after living for almost 18 years. Until we discovered Natures Menu, we had been roasting chickens to share with her, as she couldn’t digest ‘normal’ cat food. With Natures Menu is there’s no ’yuck’ factor, you just take it from the freezer to defrost in convenient quantities. Thank you Natures Menu!"
After 15 years in small animal practice, Melanie joined the Natures Menu team to promote responsible raw feeding across the UK and Europe. She’s also a fully qualified dog trainer, with a real passion for raw and natural feeding. "I was shocked to discover the foods I had been recommending for years were actually full of things we really should not be feeding our canine companions on a daily basis! Now I’d never advise feeding with anything but raw or natural food.”
