Lily’s Kitchen combines the wholesome goodness of natural ingredients with the expert nutrition of a veterinary-approved diet. We work tirelessly with our kitchens to source high quality ingredients; with vets and nutritionists to create brilliantly balanced recipes; and with dedicated producers to gently cook our meals in small batches without losing their nutritional integrity.
Crucially, we never ever use artificial additives, preservatives, colours or flavours, nor do we use any pet food fillers, like meat meal, bone meal, animal derivatives or by-products.
Because every pet is different, we create a range of recipes, including specific nutrition tailored for puppies and kittens.
All our cat food recipes are grain-free, which is essential for their health. We also have a range of grain-free recipes for dogs, for those who are intolerant to grains or who have sensitive tummies.
Wholehearted believers in the benefits of organic farming, we offer a specific range that is certified organic, which only uses 100% organic meat, fruit, vegetable and herbs. Our aim is to offer a natural and nutritious diet to as many dogs and cats as possible, which is why we also make a 100% natural range that uses organic ingredients where possible.
Health you can see
It’s easy to spot a Lily’s Kitchen pet from their beautifully shiny coat, but health happens inside too. Our customers regularly tell us that trips to the vet fall dramatically once they switch onto our food. Here are some of the benefits of our pure natural nutrition:
- Helps support a robust immune system
- A healthier weight
- Reduced wind, and regular firm poo
- Shiny coat
- A newfound love for dinner time
- Healthy clean teeth and fresher breath
- No more doggy smell for our canine customers
Reading the label
The only way to know what you’re really feeding your pet is to read and understand the label. Knowing what you are – and aren’t – looking for will help you choose the most appropriate dish for your dog or cat. Here are a few things to look out for:
A high meat content
Meat should be top of the ingredients list to show it’s the main component.
Freshly prepared meat is the most easily digestible protein for your pet so look out for that. Avoid dehydrated meat, dried meat, rendered meat, animal derivatives and meat meal – they are protein sources, but they’re harder to digest, so a higher protein level doesn't always mean a better quality food.
A low ash level
This shows how much indigestible bone meal is in the food. The lower the better.
For dogs, ensure carbohydrates are provided by vegetables and not all from grain. For cats, you should avoid grain altogether.
These have been specially combined so they’re more readily absorbed. Keep an eye out for them.
Complete foods are nutritionally designed for main meals, while complimentary foods should only be used as a treat or in combination with a complete food.
Yesterday a particularly well dressed man came to our office present us with our Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation. It’s the UK’s highest accolade for business success, and came in recognition of our dedication to improving the quality of pets’ lives.Click here to read more
