17th June - Dodson & Horrell launches Pet Greyhound food for the Retired Greyhound Trust

Dodson & Horrell has joined forces with the Retired Greyhound Trust to develop a Pet Greyhound food, designed to meet the specific nutritional and health needs of greyhounds with £1 from every pack sold being donated to the charity.

Dodson & Horrell has been manufacturing quality animal feed for just under 75 years, with the well known Chudleys Dog Food remaining one of the company’s flag- ship brands. By understanding the varying nutritional requirements of pets and working dogs, Dodson & Horrell combines a wealth of experience by using the latest research findings and modern manufacturing techniques to develop comprehensive dog foods for different breeds.

The nutritional recipe of Pet Greyhound is what sets it apart from other pet food on the market. Developed with a top animal nutritionist, it contains Omega 3 fatty acids and mobility herbs for healthy joints, an ideal 19% protein and enhanced key vitamins, amino acids and trace nutrients for an improved coat. It aids the digestive and immune systems with functional fibres and prebiotics and is rich in chicken, making it an appetising meal for fussy eaters.

Pet Greyhound also benefits from the Chudleys’ Quality Life Care package, which is a patented antioxidant feature that mops up free radicals and provides nutritional support for a dog’s own natural antioxidant system.

Sam Horrell, Dodson & Horrell Marketing Director, said: “We are dedicated to the nutrition of animals and Pet Greyhound food delivers the ideal diet with the specific needs of a non-racing greyhound in mind. We worked with a top nutritionist on Pet Greyhound to ensure it is filled with the essential vitamins and nutritional benefits that greyhounds require. ”

“We are delighted to be working with the Retired Greyhound Trust on Pet Greyhound and have pledged a £1 donation to them for every bag of Pet Greyhound that is sold, to help them continue their vital work rehoming thousands of greyhounds each year in Britain.”

Pet Greyhound is competitively priced (RRP of £19.95) and will be available from Retired Greyhound Trust Branches and affiliated re-homing centres.

Peter Laurie, Chief Executive of the Retired Greyhound Trust said: “The Trust receives a lot of questions from the public who are looking for the best available pet food for their dogs.This food is the answer to their questions and is the product that pet greyhound owners have been waiting for.

“Not only has Dodson & Horrell embraced Pet Greyhound, they have created a food that we strongly believe in and confidently endorse.”
