If you feed or are planning to feed your dog on Bakers Complete please read the following information and research further online:
I refuse to sell Bakers products and I discourage people from feeding their dogs Bakers because of the problems they encounter. Bearing in mind that Bakers is owned by a major American company (Purina); it is not available in the US because some of the ingredients are banned in America. The protein in Bakers Complete is in the form of meat and animal derivatives, this is low quality protein as it comes from less desirable parts of the animal such as the feet and the guts. It contains more sugar than most dog foods on the market. Bakers Complete is packed with additives, preservatives, food colouring and sugars.
There are many reports of various skin problems, hyperactivity, cancer, overweight and other health related problems, which are likely to be caused by feeding dogs additives.
Bakers Complete contains the following E numbers:
