McAdam’s Meat Meal Free Alternative Dog Food

We had heard a lot of good things about Mcadam’s meat meal free alternative dog food and now feed it to our chihuahuas. We caught up with them to find out more about it.

Hello,we are McAdams,the meat meal free alternative dog food made using whole British free range chickens from DEFRA approved, ethical farms across the UK. Our story began in East Sussex with the world’s fussiest Labrador – you may not believe us, but it’s true. George the Labrador sadly suffered from some health issues, which left Neil McAdam in a troublesome position.

It all started with home cooking

Neil had a Labrador who wouldn’t eat but needed all the health benefits he could get his paws on! So Neil began to bake his own food for George; using whole chickens from his local food shop and slowly starting to add in healthy ingredients along the way.

In the comfort of his own home, Neil was creating a wholesome, balanced and nutritious dog food. One that George loved! As word travelled through Neil’s friends and family, a few biscuits turned into sacks. Neil began to realise George wasn’t the only picky eater around. It was when George and Neil were walking on the South Downs that Neil’s ethical ideas started to transform – a free range chicken farm sat in the hills. A after discussions Neil found the first ingredient to his new journey in life.

An alternative dog food is born

After working to find suitable, sustainable and high quality ingredients to compliment the chicken, Neil was well on his way to making a food like no other. Using the best possible sources and maintaining that personal touch – McAdams was created. McAdams’ uses whole British free range chicken and our birds come from farms that care about animal welfare, who are DEFRA approved.

We only use chickens from farms that care about welfare.

You won’t find stripped carcass, powdered protein, meat meal or fresh chicken on our label. This helps to remove many health issues including allergies, skin conditions, smelly breath, digestive concerns and many more. Our joint care is not pack bought but instead sourced from New Zealand in the form of Green Lipped Mussels; rich in

glucosamine, chondroitin and omega-3 fatty acids these mussels offer fantastic joint care and protection working for the older and the younger dog alike. McAdams is 50% chicken and 22% sweet potato – we have added a host of hand picked ingredients in the form of fruits and vegetables, providing a well balanced food which is highly digestible.

To protect these ingredients and remain close to the organic process first created in Neil’s kitchen, we decided to bake our food. By slow roasting McAdams in an oven it limits the damage and destruction to the components.

How we are different

Extrusion, a process adopted by many dog food companies means the food is cooked at high temperatures, which breaks down the value of each ingredient, through baking we can down size the effect cooking has on the food.

Baking and excluding meat meal from our recipe gives McAdams a unique and palatable taste – making it irresistible to dogs. Our biscuits are then hand cut, packed and delivered with care from start to finish. McAdams’ stylish exterior receives attention but it’s the high quality composition of each biscuit that provides a digestible, omega rich food. This ensures a healthy skin & coat formula and joint care with an incredible taste.

McAdams still remains run by one man and his dog…plus a very small team of knowledgeable dog lovers. We are providing you with the same great taste now, as it were in George’s kitchen.   We hope your dog enjoys McAdams as so many others are finding out.
