What a beau-tiful dog
He thrives on Oscar pet food which we have for a long time now with Storm, JJ and Rowley had great faith in. White Bullies are prone to skin conditions but Beau's coat, skin and general health are excellent.Mr Webb - Cared for by Oscar Direct
13 years going on 3 months
Having returned from my 6 monthly check up at the vet this morning, the vet commented on the best care we have given to our Labrador was to keep his weight at a healthy range. I can only contribute this to the balanced choice of foods from Oscars. We have been feeding our much loved, slightly greying chocolate Labrador Finley on Oscars products all his life. He will be celebrating his 13th birthday on the 21st of June and sometimes in his head he still thinks he is a puppy!The Wadham family - cared for by Oscar Pet Foods direct
From rags to riches
From the start, Devon, my Golden Retriever had been suffering with very poor skin and coat condition. She was constantly itching and scratching, pulling her fur out in clumps. Having changed her food so many times I wish I'd spoken to OSCAR sooner.
With fur missing from her face, Devon looked much older than her five years and my mum's introduction to Tom Cartmale turned our lives around. He could not do enough to help; his nutritional advice and the change to a fish and potato diet has worked wonders. It took a couple of months for Devon's condition to improve but Tom kept in touch with her progress and his patience and dedication has been a great help.
Although Devon will never be totally clear of her lifelong problem she looks much healthier and she is out to impress everyone, including our regular dog groomer.
Tom always goes the extra mile to make sure we never run out of food because he has our best interests at heart. I would go a long way to find another pet food company that offers a personal service that I can trust and where I know I will get an honest answer.Mellissa Kelly & Devon -cared for by Tom Cartmale Oscar Pet Foods Stoke on Trent
My Golden Retriever, Bella suffered with itchy skin. Until I met Lyn at Ludlow Market, Lyn recommended Oscar Adult care Chicken and Rice, gluten free. After finishing mixing Oscars with food Bella was on, the itching has stopped. So pleased as I didn't think changing Bella's food would make such a difference. Thoroughly recommend Oscars!Jean Mellings - cared for by Lynette Higgins, Oscar Pet Foods Bridgnorth
I wanted to take this opportunity to write to Oscars thanking them for ALL the lovely food you have supplied to our precious rescue Labrador CALLY for the last nine years.
CALLY sadly had a tumour on her aorta and kidney which was diagnosed in September 2016. We had her put to sleep peacefully on 23rd December, and are totally devastated. She was one amazing special dog.
She has NEVER been ill in her life, since we got her, even though she was skin and bone when we collected her as a rescue in 2007. From the day she arrived she has been on OSCARS food, and has thrived. We have never deviated from her meals, we even took her Oscars food to kennels if she went. She had OSCARS twice a day usually with a teaspoon of fat free cottage cheese or plain yoghurt, and only had OSCARS treats. We can honestly say never had one tummy upset or anything- only when the tumour appeared was she sick and then only a handful of times until we had her put to sleep.
She was on some Oscars right until her last week of life. Lesley Lavin our Oscars rep has been amazing been at the end of a phone always, and given great advice at all times. She has never missed a delivery either, and often come especially to deliver, if we ran out of food unexpectedly. I have sent numerous people to her over the years, and they are all delighted too. When everyone today takes the first opportunity to criticise, I wanted to let you know how delighted I have been with your company, and to thank you for giving my rescue dog a healthy life. Cally came second in the Older Dog category.! She was 7 years of age at the time. I know in the event we get another dog in the future we will use OSCARS again.
You have a great company – thank you

About 3 years ago the dog of my life, Fable, became ill with a virus. She became so ill and so thin that it was cruel to keep her alive, but at this point we reached a breakthrough and she was diagnosed with a very rare condition with only 23 documented cases in the world. My vet was amazing, skyping another vet in California who had successfully treated dogs with this condition. We had drugs fedExed from Europe and she started to get better. I couldn't be happier.
All the treatment though, left Fable with a VERY sensitive digestive system. I have tried many different dog foods, but really struggled to find something that helps her digestion and that she will eat, Whippets are very fussy eaters!!! Whilst at Badminton horse trials I walked into the Oscar Pet Foods stand and, after chatting to you about her condition, brought a sample of the Chicken and Potato complete food. I gently introduced this into her normal feed........and she LOVED it. She's now been on this food for about 2 years and the difference is amazing. She's gained weight (may even be a bit portly for a whippet) and her coat is beautifully shiny. She can still get a colitis flare up, but they are nowhere near as bad as they have been in the past, and can easily be managed.
I can't thank you enough Oscar Pet Foods, for giving me back my beautiful girl.Lynette Miller - cared for by Jill & Steve Tubbs, Oscar Pet Foods Wilts-Gloucs

"Just a quick note to say a public thanks to Richard Hebden of Oscar Pet Foods Flintshire, our local rep. Very knowledgeable chap (not just about pet nutrition), speaking a lot of sense, didn't try to convince us, merely presented us with the facts. So we have put Holly, 11 years old, on Pinnacle+ and already after 2/3 weeks her coat is looking shinier, she has more energy and her poo is more solid, plus she's looking forward to meal times. We'll be back for more! Thanks"Jack and Martha Taylor, cared for by Richard Hebden

"Good afternoon to you. I would just like to pass on to you our thoughts of your sales representative Lawrence Slade. He came to Kennington Ashford (to visit Monty, Honey and Billy) to promote your pet food just now & found all of his knowledge & advice very interesting & helpful. He never at any point pressured us or forced your products on us & eventually stayed just short of an hour & half in total."

A Thank You from Storm
Nigel Webb, cared for by OscarDirect
"Hi to all at Oscars. In the very early hours of 5th September we sadly had to say goodbye to Storm. We miss her tremendously she was such an affectionate dog who loved to press her face to face with us. She was 14 plus when she passed and we are sure her longevity and general good health is testament to Oscars dog food."
"Thank you for all your help and great service, I have attached a couple of pics taken recently while in Scotland, she really enjoyed a week on the West coast and even had fun with 4 other dogs on the beach one sunny afternoon at Glenelg. Thank you"
"Just to say a sincere thank you so much for your customer care and speedy delivery- delighted to receive our first order this morning before 8am- only ordered yesterday!"Gay Scoggins (via email), cared for by OscarDirect
OSCAR is Ambrosia for Zeus
"Zeus was a sickly dog and couldn't put weight on. After trying various brands of dog food and trips to the vets we needed a solution. At the time Zeus was lacking in energy and regularly had a bad tummy. A friend recommended Oscars and though I was sceptical would have given anything a go at this point. All I can say is that I wished we had known about Oscars earlier. Sarah was excellent. She advised us on how best to introduce his new diet which included meals and treats. After one month the difference was astounding!"
"Zeus has since gone from strength to strength. He has buckets of energy and no longer suffers from tummy problems. His coat is bright and eyes shiny. I would tell everyone to use Oscars and can't thank Sarah enough. She was the lady from Oscars who gave me all the advice and support needed to get our puppy in excellent health. Throughout Sarah has kept in regular contact providing advice and guidance. Without Oscars foods I am not sure we would have a puppy at all let alone a healthy one."Michelle Agar (via email), cared for by Sara Burgess
Bonnie Can't Resist OSCAR Treats
"I am seriously impressed with your service - I only placed my order on Monday and the next day it was delivered by your most charming local franchisee in a clean smart van with Oscars logo."
"The order is in excellent resealable tubs and my dog is well taken with the quality of the products so thank you and very well done - I will for certain be back. Here is Bonnie doing her best (and ultimately failing) to resist her Fish Skins. I was a bit sceptical at first but these are the treats she absolutely adores and can't stay "on trust" for very long before temptation has it's way."Nick Santon cared for by Stuart and Christine Dickens (via email)
Pippa from Paphiakos
"My friend Helen, a volunteer at Paphiakos Sanctuary just happened to be in Cyprus at the right time! She knew that we had recently lost our beloved German Shepherd Molly who had left a big hole in our lives ... we were carefully considering our options here in the UK until Helen sent me this photo of Pippa - (see skinny Pippa). Those eyes say it all.. we had to help her."
"Pippa is a hunting hound. The hunting season in Cyprus is tough and had come to an end, Pippa's job had been done and wasn't needed. We think Pippa was driven to the remote hillsides and tossed out of the back of a van. When she was found she was covered in hundreds of ticks and fleas, riddled with fleas and had a nasty head wound. Its likely Pippa had spent months tied to a tree in the blistering heat as tests showed a positive diagnosis for Leishmaniasis (A manageable but incurable condition caused by sandfly bites.. she probably got these when she was tied up, in turn this affects her immune system amongst other things.)"
"The Sanctuary at Paphiakos make it their purpose to drive around and rescue dogs like Pippa to offer a safe haven, medication and if they are very lucky a loving home. Sadly, when Pippa arrived they didn't hold out much hope for her to survive. Pippa had never been offered dog food before.. the hunting hounds in cyprus survive on scraps that they steal which are thrown out by the hotels so I was concerned about how her digestive system would react. After a long chat with Rachel at Oscars she recommended we begin to feed Pippa on some puppy food as its high in calories and very easy to digest. "
"Within a week she started to fill out and now, 8 months later, she is enjoying her food so much we have to buy the diet version!! She was one of the lucky ones, and pulled through against all the odds - thank you Oscars! "

New Lease of Life for Susie
"Susie, our seven-and-a-half year-old Collie, was born with congenital problems. With hip dysplasia and the runt of the litter, she had no future until we came along."
"Having lost our old dog the empty space was filled by Susie, and we agreed to nurture her through each day in the hope that we could at least give her some quality of life, however short it may be. We had prepared for four years but to reach seven gave us confidence in how she was managing her condition, when suddenly she collapsed. We were very distressed, and went through weeks of painkillers, injections and a thorough veterinary scan, which confirmed that her hip problem was taking its toll."
"Six months on, her spirit has been rekindled since a chance meeting with Tom Cart male and an introduction to OSCAR Pet Foods. Susie's deterioration was drastic and though we had previously been feeding her wet food, a change of diet to OSCAR Pinnacle +, which contained all the right ingredients formulated in a dry food designed to target joint problems and suit older dogs, has resulted in seeing Susie back to her normal very popular self. "
"We are over the moon. She is able to run to greet her friends, jump onto the sofa; the transformation is amazing and we are just thankful. Of course we wish we could have found OSCAR sooner – would we have saved her months of anxiety? Nevertheless, it was meant to be and we are delighted to share our experience by talking about how Susie has been given a new lease of life because of meeting Tom Cart male and discovering the benefits of OSCAR. "

All About The Bass
"I’ve been feeding Oscar Working Dog for the past 8 years. My present dogs, 3 German Shepherds and 2 Border Collies all share my passion for running. We take part in Canix events (cross country running with dogs) and in 2009 Megan, my Border Collie ran at Crufts, securing us 3rd place in my age group. Running flat out for a mile round the lake at the NEC was tough but so worth it when we received our prize in the main arena. That memory will stay with me forever! Following my recent hip replacement I’m building up my training for a canicross event in a few weeks, again with Megan."
"I absolutely adore dogs so when I was asked to judge one of Oscar’s fun dog shows I was delighted to accept. Dave Bass and his team organised the show near Congleton, Cheshire and it was a fantastic success. What could be better than spending a lovely day meeting lots of gorgeous dogs and their proud owners?"

"Dear Oscars, I phoned yesterday as Taz has a problem with his gut and I was going to go and get a small bag of food and try Taz on it but I was told that you would not only change the type of feed but you would send it out to me which I appreciate so much as you supply this free to operational (SARDA) dogs which is a big cost to Oscar’s plus its couriered to me."
"I can’t thank you enough as the bag arrived this afternoon. Sadly I think there’s more to it as there was spots of blood in his feces tonight so off to the vets in the morning. Again thank you so much for your support and help not just for yesterday but for the past few years and that’s to ALL the staff at Oscars."

Much More Than Pet Food for Charlie
"I have much to be very thankful for finding Oscar 'much more than pet food' to quote what is on an Oscar brochure. My Giant Schnauzer, Charlie, 18 months, has had tummy problems and diarrhea since he was a puppy. I tried everything and nothing suited him (he would eat anything, but nothing agreed with his tummy)."
"When I first talked to Sarah on the phone, I was very happy that someone listened to the problems we were having, and also gave me assurance that they could help with the situation. They kindly sent me a free food sample and that seemed to fit well with Charlie. Now he is on the Oscar food (nothing else), his tummy is fine now, his coat glossy and he is not so hyperactive and doesn't scratch his coat as much. Oscar produces chew sticks, which Charlie loves, and also charcoal biscuits. What can be better? And no bad tummy!"
"Thank all of you at Oscar: I thought it would never happen. I would recommend Oscars to anyone who needs to give their pets good food and help when they need it."

Pinnacle for Ruby and Belle
"From when we first brough Belle home she had skin problems. She was chewing her paws and legs. She had gone from constantly being on antibiotics to then going onto steroids and her poor legs were bandaged all the time. Six weekly doses of antibiotics on occasions but she still wasn't healing very well."
"Both our dogs Belle and Ruby have also suffered from arthritis too. Mobility had slowed that much for both of the dogs that Mrs Hurd had to drive them to the park for a walk, as often; by the time they got there (if they walked there) they were limping before their walk began."
"A friend recommended Oscar and Claire Taylor (Local Nutritional Advisor in North Manchester) changed their diet (to OSCAR Pinnacle+) and in 2 or 3 weeks they were running around the park and no longer limping."
"Belle's skin condition healed immediately. Up until 8 years of age she had been on medication that never helped, and Oscar in a matter of weeks worked. Belle had arthritis in 3 of her legs; and now she runs round like a pup again. She can't sing Oscars praises enough to people she meets. They are both doing really well; fantastic."
"Oscar gets delivered to the door and we buy treats too. The difference not having to go to the supermarket is really handy. Claire offers great service."

More Please for Max
"Can you please send me a bag of the usual? Max is a large collie cross and is probably nearer a German shepherd’s size, I’ve attached a photo of him with Star, a Border collie for your reference. Due to the amount of exercise and work he does, I seem to be running out of food sooner than expected. He is maintaining a healthy weight on a third more of the food per day than recommended by yourselves and this is probably down to his actual size not being taken into consideration initially."
"He’s doing really well on the food though and his coat is in great condition with a lovely glossy shine."
"Thank you for your continued support of SARDA dogs."

Golden Sunday.... thanks to OSCAR
Our Golden Retriever, Sunday had a very poorly tummy every 6 weeks or so and bad skin too. We went to the vets on several occasions and were prescribed medication/shampoo but none of it really helped. Then we met Steve & Jill (Tubbs, Nutritional Advisors from Gloucestershire) at a local show, had a chat and they recommended a food from OSCAR.
We've been feeding it for 3 years now. Very quickly after we changed to OSCAR food it worked; cleared up Sunday's skin and tummy. We now tell everyone about OSCAR. It's made a world of difference to Sunday, made him much happier - no longer looks for water to lie in to cool his skin down. It's also brilliant that it 'just arrives'.... We don't have to collect. Everyone should use OSCAR! Sunday's skin has cleared up completely, it's been amazing really..."

'Taylor' Made Service
"Oscars, or more specifically, Claire Taylor (Local Nutritional Advisor, Manchester) representing Oscars, has been a godsend to me. As an animal lover, I probably have what some would consider to be too many pets. I am a sucker for an animal that needs a home! With a full time job and a household to run, it was difficult to manage shopping for the animals as well as all the other stuff and many is an occasion I would be running out to a well known brand of pet shop at the last minute to get food, hay etc etc. Claire and Oscars have changed that for me. No matter how late or strange the request, Claire has always delivered. Thanks to her, I am now also able to look after the wildlife in my garden as well as the pets!"

"I have been using OSCARS for many years now. Kim [Stanier] (Nutritional Advisor, Birmingham) knocked on my door when my Suzie was 8 months old she wasn't well. She had all sorts of allergies which she was on medication for. She was losing her fur. Kim came round, played a food game with Sue and I bought the chicken and rice food."
"Suzies fur started to grow back without the medication, I would like to say!! So therefore it was the food Iwas previously feeding her that caused the fur loss. Suzie passed away 01/08/2011 at the age of 14. I still use OSCAR for our remaining dog Daisy; so I thank you Kim & Mick for your support, care and continuing service. :) "

Tom Goes Beyond the Call Of Duty
"I want to thank Tom (Cartmele, Nutritional Advior, Stoke) for his great service whilst Chester was with us. My daughter recently got a new puppy and chose a different food to Oscar and ended up with rashes on his belly. After some very expensive trips to the vets it was eventually suggested it could be an allergy and we immediately thought of ringing Tom. At 9:30 in the evening he took her call and spent 30 mins on the phone advising me. I just wanted to thank him, for all his time and efforts."
"His service is fantastic! He really goes beyond the call of duty; he really knows his job and has a brilliant and vast knowledge about nutrition."
Mrs Walker, Stoke on Trent
Happy Oscar Prize Winners
"Dear Sir / Madam, I recently won 6 months supply of Oscars dog food in a competition. Your representative, Gordon, has been in touch and we have decided on Advanced 'Pinnacle of Life' as my three sheep-dogs are 6yrs, 8rys and 151/2. They have been on Oscar's for over two weeks now and are enjoying it."
"Thank you for my prize and I have enclosed photo's of my three happy Collies (scanned images)."
Regards Maralyn Lacy, York
The Hills Are Alive!... Thanks to Oscar
"Ever since we put Zack Rogers onto Oscar food he has become a lot stronger and has far more stamina than he ever did before. And I thought he used to be irritating, he is much more so now. His mountain stamina has increased massively too (see photo of recent mountaineering trip to Scotland)."
"Discovered Oscar through your sponsorship of SARDA. Keep up the good work. "

Oscar Rescue Heidi!
"I thought you would like to know how well my young one year old rescue dog is doing on Oscars food. In June she came over from Ireland with an organisation that rescues young dogs to find her forever home over here."
"She had been abandoned and very badly abused and starved and although she had spent a month in a foster home in Ireland still looked like a skeleton with a coat thrown over it. On collecting her I straight away put her on Oscars puppy food for a couple of weeks and then onto Oscars Junior food which she is still on , and in the four months it is incredible how she has developed, put on weight and is gaining confidence every day, so much so that last month I entered her for the best rescue dog and she won first prize."
"Thank you Oscars, I have been using your product for many years and I cannot recommend it highly enough for both young and older dogs, my 11 year old labrador is still looking the picture of health on your Pinnacle Plus. I am attaching a photo of Heidi taken a month ago."

Praise for OscarDirect Mail Order Team
"I'm more than happy to tell anybody who will listen how good the food and the service is from Oscars. I don't know about you all but I get so fed up with hearing how bad some companies treat people, it's a genuine pleasure to be treated well."
"I would also like to say that my dog Tasha, a lovely Heinz 57 mixed breed who, when we first got her had a very dodgy tummy, has been on Oscars Ultracare for most of her life now (she's 8 and a half), and I wouldn't swap her to anything else. She loves the food and always has a lovely glossy coat and shiny bright eyes. "
"The staff who ring me to take my order are always really helpful, and these days it's rare to find companies who actually care about their customers, but Oscars definately do! I can't praise them or their foods highly enough - keep up the good work!"
Mrs Cooke, Kettering (cared for by OscarDirect)

Helpline is so Helpful
"I would like to pass many thanks onto Rachael for helping me with a problem my dog had. I am so pleased with her advice and I will recommend Oscar Pet Foods and the free helpline service to all my friends who have pets. I'm over the moon!"

More precision+ Praise
"My older dog has had major problems with bloating and very bad diarrhoea. This food [precision+] has caused her no problems after trying so many ways of feeding her. At long last she is maintaining weight and seems so much more comfortable. Thank you and Claire for this."
Susan Heyes, Manchester (Cared for by Claire Taylor, Local Nutritional Advisor, Manchester)
12 years with OSCAR
"I've fed Oscars for about 12 years now but a few years ago due to financial difficulties I decided to change to a cheaper brand & noticed a difference in my dogs immediately. I lost my oldest dog Sam after a very short illness & almost a year to the day I lost his partner in crime Ella again after a short illness. She had ...an ultrasound which revealed a massive tumour on her spleen which had attached to her bowel."
"I read an article about the truth behind the labels on our dog food & was shocked & disgusted at what is actually in some food but because of clever wording we would never know. I immediately changed back to Oscars."
"I now have a white Staffie who I rescued when he was 2. He was a bag of bones when I got him & had cuts all over him & was generally nervous. He was 4 yesterday & is a handsome big boy now. What a difference some TLC & decent food can make. Lets face it they don't ask for more than that but give us so much more back x".

SARDA Supported and Fed By OSCARS"Dear Oscars, Bracken is a 7 year old male border collie; he is a fully graded Search & Rescue dog for SARDA England he works very hard when out searching or training in the mountains. We have tried many dog food brands over past 7 years, he used to be such a fussy eater his joints were very stiff on an evening and he could never hold any weight.
Since we started feeding Bracken on Oscars 12 months ago, his joints are more supple and he licks his bowl clean after every meal. He holds a steady weight he has lots more energy and his coat has never been better, full of shine and softness.
Your sales representative is very knowledgeable and supportive he provides an excellent service. I have even begun to feed my new puppy on OSCARS as I am so impressed at the quality of your dog food.
I can honestly say that OSCAR Pet food has to be one of the best dog foods on the market, thank you for sponsoring Bracken over the past 12 months".
Lee Ferry, Search and Rescue Dogs Association England (SARDA), Stanley, Co Durham.
Taste the Difference
I wish I'd known about Oscar years ago - I really can't believe the difference!
Anna Harding, Cumbria.
"I'm looked after by David Bass (Nutritional Advisor) from Congleton and as one of his customers, I have a winning dog from last years Crufts. Megan, my Border Collie, ran with me in the Canix event - gaining us third place in my age group (over 50's). This event was a mile run from the main arena, round the lake at the NEC and finishing at the "beach" by the
lake. Megan and I completed the run in 7 minutes 21 seconds. Megan has been reared on Oscar dog food and at the time of the event, she was 2 years old. All my 5 dogs are fed on Oscar dog food, their ages ranging from 2 to 12 years. They are all very active dogs and this year Kya, my 9 year old German Shepherd will be running at Crufts. I am completely satisfied with Oscar's
dog food and, as an athlete myself (I run marathons) I appreciate that correct feeding gets results. Oscars certainly works for my active dogs!"
Dianne Lapworth, Congleton.
OSCAR Means Prizes
“Fun dog shows and agility have always given me a great reward and an interesting life for my Border Collies, Rahann, Nazann and Thaitann - each holders of a ‘Best in Breed’ title. I’m a customer to Steve and Miriam McGarry (Nutritional Advisors, Barrow) and have nothing but praise for appreciating the value of their help in feeding my dogs OSCAR Advanced Fish and Potato. Perfect weights, glossy coats and bright eyes just keep the rosettes coming. Nazann recently achieved a 1st in Mid Limit and 2nd in Graduate class at a Blackpool show and, now with four more shows lined up for the next two months I feel confident of success. I’ve been a long-time OSCAR customer, long enough to prove that I’m feeding the best for my dogs. Having lost touch with OSCAR for a short while and to experience a difference their condition; I was so relieved to come back to good quality food and a spot-on service.”

OSCARS Helps Diabetic Dog
"I cannot thank Jill and Steve enough for everything they’ve done to help us with our Dog Tico’s diet since we found out he was diabetic back in March 2009. Nothing is too much trouble, whether it’s speaking to the nutritionalist, or getting a last minute order to us. All part of the service they might think – However today, they went much further than that. As the country grinds to a halt with all the snow. This afternoon our doorbell rings and there’s a very wrapped up gentleman stood there with Tico’s food!! Laughable that Asda cancel all their grocery deliveries, and we live just 3 streets away from them. Yet Steve and his Son can get from Chippenham to ensure that all the animals have enough to eat.. If there’s some sort of
beyond customer service award – then without a doubt it should be awarded to the Tubbs! Thank you very much."

Time to care
What a treat to find a pet food company that offers so much time to making sure that my new Cocker Spaniel would be benefiting from a healthy diet. Last year I said goodbye to my Golden Retriever, he was overweight at fourteen years of age and somehow I felt that his diet contributed towards his problems all because I just gave him what I thought he liked.
Meeting OSCAR and Tom Cartmale at the Stafford County Show introduced me to a whole new concept on how to feed my dog. He gave me so much of his time, taking me through the complete range of foods and the advantages of feeding OSCAR. Tom’s knowledge offered me confidence and support, ensuring that this time my dog started life on a healthy complete food. I want to say a big thank you to Tom for an excellent friendly door-to-door service, which I will highly recommend.”
Dave Booth, Stafford
A Very Good Start
My goodness, I can’t believe how many years I’ve known OSCAR. I was introduced to David and Dawn Jarvis at least ten years ago when Pippa, my tricolour Cocker Spaniel, had health issues, which stopped her from breeding. My vet recommended a better quality food and OSCAR came to the rescue. Over the years I’ve added Tilly, a blue roan who has produced 3 litters totalling 21 puppies and Honey, an orange roan, who, after having had 5 pups in her first litter, is just about to start again.
All of my dogs have been brought up on OSCAR Ultracare; I have no worries about quality or additives, or helping them to maintain good health and regular weight. David and Dawn never let me run out of food and they keep me supplied with puppy buckets to pass on to new owners. It’s so important that my puppies have a good start in life and there is no doubt that OSCAR is the best for food and service. Thank you David and Dawn.”
