I personally fed my Border Collie Artemis Osopure for a number of months and she did incredibly well on it, and she was very keen on their cat food to the dismay of our cat. The standard grain-based kibble from Artemis is pretty good – Fresh Mix.
Let’s take a look…
Chicken and Chicken Meal make up the top two ingredients which is great to see. There’s a decent amount of protein in the food (30%), and we can be assured this will come from the chicken. Dogs find meat proteins much easier to digest than plant proteins, so this is really good.
Barley and Brown Rice are good choices of grain. There’s certainly a lot worse choices as far as grains go, and these are two of the best. Rice Bran is an excellent source of fibre, B vitamins, minerals, and omega 3.
Chicken Fat is a great source of essential fatty acids, good for growth and a healthy skin and coat, and one of the best sources of energy.
It’s really nice to see ingredients such as chicory root, a prebiotic and source of soluble fiber to aid digestion. Flaxseed is included for healthy skin and coat, and we find salmon and salmon oil which will aid skin and coat as well as heart and joint health. We also find green tea extract as an antioxidant, which is nice to see.
All the other ingredients are pretty good – it seems standard of Artemis to really pack out their foods with quality ingredients.
This is a great high-protein food for active and working dogs.
Where to buy?
What’s good about this food….
Excellent meat content, with a high protein percentage.
….and what’s not so good.
Very little worth mentioning.
