When buying food for a dog, we rarely think about how good it is. What plays the main role in the selection? Cost and availability. Many seek to save on pet food. And I don’t want to go to the pet store, especially after work. It is more convenient to go to a regular supermarket, closest to the house. And take the pet food in it. Brit food in regular stores do not buy. But about him will be discussed in the article.
Where does the feed come from?
The first question asked by the owner of the dog. Here we make an amendment that we are talking about the owner, who sincerely wishes to find a good product for a pet.
Brit food is a joint “brainchild” of the Czech Republic and Russia. More precisely, dry food is produced in the country "overseas". And our canned food, domestic.
What is in the composition?
We are talking about dry food and focus on its composition. If you take the packaging of the finished product for adult dogs, then read the following:
- Flour from chicken meat. Its as much as 42%.
- Rice - the amount is not specified.
- Wheat. How much of it, according to manufacturers.
- Corn. And again, its percentage in the composition is unknown.
- Salmon oil.
- Vitamins and minerals.
This is not the full composition of dog food "Brit Premium". Only the most basic ingredients that the manufacturer claims are highlighted.
This is where the fun lies. Refer to the feed, produced abroad. A foreign composition written in English will tell us that chicken comes first. Not flour, as translated from us, but a real chicken.
The owners will certainly be delighted with this fact. For relatively little money, 42% of natural chicken meat! We must take. Wait with the purchase, all very cunning.
Chicken can be anything. Chicken offal, leather, heads and other waste. If fresh meat was added to the Brit Food for dogs, the producer would not hide it. And instead of a blurred chicken, would indicate the type of meat. For example, dehydrated chicken meat, or fresher. From this we can conclude: the Czechs are cunning, giving out their product for a premium class.
We continue the analysis of the composition. What is there in second place? Oh yeah, rice. About this ingredient also says nothing. Just rice, and what and what, the information is hidden. The same nonsense with wheat. There is nothing to comment on.
Corn in fourth place. This indicates a poor quality of feed. Cheap product used in economy class product. The more expensive the feed, the better it is considered. And corn has no place in its composition. About salmon oil silent. Information about its quantity is not.
Based on all of the above, we conclude: dog food "Brit Premium" for dogs does not correspond to the premium level.
Try to find the advantages of the feed under consideration. In fact, they are:
- Low price. Brit Premium can not be attributed to penny feed. But you can't call him super expensive either. The price is quite low. More expensive than feed, but cheaper superpremium. And the quality is much better than very cheap pet food.
- Prevalence. The product is sold at any pet store. Online pet stores are no exception.
- Variety of choices. The Brit Premium line of dog food is wide enough. More details about it - below.
The main and fatty minus is the composition of the feed in question. He, of course, better economy class. But before the premium does not reach. Frankly, the composition of the product is poor.
Very confused by the veiled word "chicken". We do not know what lies behind it. It is possible that natural meat is not in sight.
Dry dog food "Brit Premium" impresses with a wide range. Let's start to study it.
- Puppy food. This includes compositions for toddlers of all breeds from four weeks, nutrition for puppies of small breeds, medium, large and giant. This feed is designed for babies from two months. They are fed and adolescents up to one year old.
- There is puppy food from four months to two years. It is designed for large and giant pets.
- Food for small breeds of dogs. The age category is divided. From one to six years old, and for older pets (over seven years old).
- Feed for medium breeds. The age category is the same as that of the “trivia”.
- Food for large dogs.
- Diet for giant dogs.
- "Crackers" for animals prone to excess weight.
- Food for active pets.
- Food based on lamb and rice. By the way, the most expensive. But in the composition of only 25% of the "lamb meat flour". This product is not worth the money for which it is sold.
Positive feedback from owners
What do the owners say about Czech Brit food? Reviews, as usual, controversial. Other owners are delighted. And someone says fu.
We chose the main points that guide the owners of dogs. Let's start with those who like food:
- Low price.
- Quite fatty product with a good smell.
- The dog has a good coat.
- Color becomes brighter.
- No unpleasant smell from the mouth.
- Pet active and vigorous.
- Food does not cause allergies.
- Like the dog and the owner.
Last tip is real. Some dog lovers try pet food.
Negative feedback from owners
A very interesting point: a few lines above the owners are satisfied with the fat content of the feed and note a pleasant smell. Here are collected other opinions. Here is what the disgruntled dog lovers say:
- Doubtful composition. Food with rice and lamb, which is considered the safest in terms of allergies, is very bad. Dogs from it often itchy.
- Feed pellets are too large and dry. Smell unpleasant.
- There is a disgusting smell from dog excrement.
- Changes the color of the nose.
- Wool looks dull.
- From the mouth of the animal is a smelly smell.
So you have to think which of the following reviews are true: flattering or bad. In fact, we know that, as in the world of people, so many opinions. Until you try it yourself, you will not know the truth. We recommend dog owners to buy a small pack of food and feed their pet. This is the only way to draw conclusions about its quality.
Where to buy and how much?
Sold in large pet stores. Easily found in online pet stores.
Small packaging costs from 300 to 500 rubles. The cheapest feed, weighing 18 kilograms, for dogs of large breeds. A German shepherd is painted on it. There is such a package from 2500 to 2800 rubles.
To expensive includes food based on lamb and rice. A package weighing 18 kilograms will cost 4,500–5,500 thousand rubles. Believe me, this price of food "Brit Premium" for dogs with lamb and rice is excessively high. For the same money you can buy a better product.
What do vets say?
In general, reviews of experts about this feed are similar to each other. Like dissatisfied owners, veterinarians note the scarcity of the staff. And if the composition is bad, then what is the use of such food can be?
What follows from this?
A review of the Brit Premium dog food showed that this product is better than the economy class feed. But much worse than the real premium level. The fact is that in the natural feed the meat component must be at least 30%. It would seem that nonsense? Indeed, in the analyzed meat feed as much as 40%.
This is where the trick lies. In the food "Brit Premium" unnatural meat, as we discussed above. This is meat meal or offal. And the “native” premium class feeds are distinguished by the fact that their packaging clearly states that it is in composition. For example, fresh chicken meat and the amount in%. Or dehydrated meat, and its percentage is indicated.
In addition, corn is not included in the premium class feed. In "Brit" she is present.
When giving your pet dry food, regardless of its brand, you should remember the following:
- The product is soaked in water. Dogs risk choking.
- Water should be slightly warmed or room temperature. Never soak food in an icy liquid.
- Always keep to the norm. If the package says that the daily allowance is 200 grams, you cannot turn it into 500 grams. This is due to the fact that the feed tends to swell in the stomach of the animal, filling it. Imagine what the fucking dog would be? There is not far from volvulus.
The Czech company for the production of food for animals produces high-quality food "Brit Premium" and "Brit Care". It uses natural ingredients: meat, vegetables, cereal products and other substances that strengthen the pet's body. This feed is intended for dogs of any age and any breed.

Brit Premium for dogs contains an optimal amount of animal protein.
Important. On the official site in the composition of the feed in the first place is "chicken (42%)", which means "chicken (42%)". Such a general formulation hides not only meat, but also offal. In the Russian-language translation, this ingredient is listed as "chicken flour", which causes doubts about the integrity of the manufacturer.
The feed formulation contains a complex of prebiotics in the form of fructooligosaccharides and mannanooligosaccharides, which increase the body's resistance to bacteria and viruses. Полиненасыщенные жирные кислоты Омега-3 и Омега-6 играют важную роль в правильном развитии нервной системы и укреплении иммунитета. Экстракты из трав и фруктов защищают организм на клеточном уровне, а сушеные яблоки снабжают организм питомца витаминами и пектином.
Пивные дрожжи в составе корма являются источником витамина В, а также улучшают качество шерсти животного. Свекольный жом нормализует стул питомца, а экстракт Юкки Шидигера уменьшает его запах. Добавление глюкозамина и хондроитина в формулу корма предотвращает заболевания опорно-двигательного аппарата, к которым имеют склонность пожилые собаки.

Such ingredients as beef, pork and soy are completely excluded from the composition of Brit Premium. They contain poorly digestible proteins, exert stress on the gastrointestinal tract and provoke allergies. The manufacturer refused to use genetically modified organisms and ingredients with artificial origin.

Of the cons of food should be highlighted:
- overall poor composition,
- the presence of corn, which is difficult to digest,
- the discrepancy of the original composition and translated into Russian, where the ingredient "chicken" (meat and offal) turns into "flour from chicken meat" (real meat).
How is this feed better than others?
The main advantage of dry food Brit Premium in comparison with similar brands is a high percentage of meat ingredient - 41-42%.
In the feed Brit Premium a high percentage of meat ingredient (42%).
Dogs are by nature predators, and their bodies require a sufficient amount of meat. It is extremely rare to find such a percentage of the meat component in premium segment food: for example, in Lithuanian Araton, its index varies from 16 to 21%, and in Natures Protection - about 18%.
Another advantage of Brit Premium food is the presence of apples in the composition, because in premium feeds the presence of vegetables and fruits is a rare phenomenon. There is no place for natural sources of vitamins in the form of vegetables, berries and fruits in either the Chicopee rations or the Club 4 Paws Ukrainian brand.
The advantage of Brit Premium food is the absence of artificial flavors, flavor enhancers and preservatives in the composition, which cannot be said of the Royal Canin dog food brands and Club 4 Paws.

Reviews of veterinarians about dog food Brit Premium
Valentine, vet, 55 years. Analyzing the food premium premium Brit, we can conclude that the composition of the feed is not bad for this category. The indicator of the meat component is quite high - about 42%, which indicates that the feed is consistent with the carnivorous needs of dogs.
Veterinarians note that this food is the best in the premium category.
Some superpremium brands can envy this amount of meat. But in general, the composition of the product is usual for inexpensive food - rice, wheat, corn, chicken fat, etc. I am glad that the manufacturer added some important additives to the formulation (prebiotics, glucosamine, chondroitin)that help keep the pet healthy. I would also like to note that in the diet there are no artificial flavors, preservatives and flavor enhancers, which is a huge plus for premium food.
Daria, vet, 32 years. Often, for the production of premium dog food, not the highest quality ingredients are used, including meat. In Brit Premium rations, not only real meat, but also offal. Of course, such animal products as the liver and heart are very useful for the pet's body, but in our case it is not known which specific by-products are used. The manufacturer hides all the meat components for a single concept of "chicken". The advantage of the feed is the lack of flavoring additives and synthetic preservatives.as well as a rich ruler. In general, food is not bad for daily feeding of a dog, but if you have a financial opportunity, I recommend using superpremium feeds or holistics, which you can be sure of.
Dog Breeder Feedback on Brit Premium Food
Anastasia. I am very pleased with the Czech premium food Brit. I have a baby breed of toy terrier, so when choosing food, I pay special attention to the size of the pellets. Britt has no problem with this: the pieces are small, fit perfectly in the mouth. The dog quickly got used to the new food, I did not even have to mix it with the previous feed. Allergies, problems with stool or food intolerance have never been. Packing of food is very convenient: there is a small package of 1 kg - exactly what I need. I advise Brit Premium as an inexpensive but quality product.
Pay attention to other premium feeds:
Marina. I have a very picky dog in the food of a small breed, Pti Brabancon. Usually she asks only meat for us, but it is simply impossible to feed with one meat. They began to feed her dry food, most of which she simply did not eat. When we bought Brit Premium food for the test, the dog flew at him and began to eat with such greed. Small balls are very convenient for small dogs, and the scent is quite attractive. The dog constantly licks the packaging when he wants to eat. A nice bonus was the fact that the wool has acquired a beautiful shine, and the dog has become more playful and fun.

Conclusions on Brit Premium Feed
Brit Premium dog food reviews are mostly positive, but there is also a negative feeding experience. The composition of the product is quite typical for the premium segment, and against the background of similar brands of dog food, he wins only in price. Analyzing the quality and cost of other feed, we can conclude that the price for the Brit Premium is somewhat underestimated.
The average cost of a small kilogram pack of food is from 230 to 300 rubles, and a large 18-kilogram bag - from 3400 to 4800 rubles.
Brit Premium Dog Food Review
Given the name Brit Premium is not difficult to guess that this is premium class dog food. However, if you look at the Russian-language description of the composition, then this feed is better than some super-premiums. However, this is far from the case, and why - we will tell while studying the composition. By the way, the feed is produced by the Czech company Brit Pet Food.
Read about feed from other manufacturers:
The composition of the feed Brit Premium for dogs
Consider the composition of Brit Premium feed on the example of Junior M variant (for puppies and young dogs (2–12 months) of medium breeds). In the photo below - the composition translated into Russian, and on a white background - the original composition taken from the official site www.brit-petfood.com/en/products/brit-premium-junior-m. “Chicken meat flour (42%)” is in the first place - an indicator that many super premium feeds will envy.
However, these are just “miracles of translation”, in the original description in the first place is “chicken (42%)”, that is, just “chicken”. Such a general concept as a rule simply hides offal (in better quality Brit Care it is written in the original composition and it is “meat”, do you think if there was only that, then the manufacturer would hide it?). And in the reviews, many buyers praise the food very much, because for a low price we get 42% of chicken meat ...
The rest of the usual composition for inexpensive food - rice, corn, wheat, chicken fat, etc., except that dried apples are present (fruits in the premiums are not frequent).
Brit Premium Dog Food - reviews
Feedback on feed Brit Premium for dogs, writes Victoria. Hello! Our puppy first ate a naturalka, but then had to be transferred to dry food. As a result of a long search, we stopped at Brit Premium for puppies of medium breeds. What we liked: a good composition (although I am not an expert), a convenient zip-fastener on the packaging, large granules (the puppy has to be crushed) and not an exorbitant price. During feeding, the puppy is active and looks great.
About dog food Brit Premium review writes Larisa. My toychik has been eating Brit Premium for two years already, in the summer for puppies and young small dogs (although he is already ten), and in the winter it is light for all breeds. It is necessary to change to less high-calorie, otherwise due to less activity it recovers greatly. The rest of the dog looks great))
Feedback on the feed Brit Premium for dogs, writes Olesya. Usually, my dog eats Royal Canin, but there was an action in the store and for Brit Premium premium food and I bought a small sample package. Both feeds are comparable in composition, but at the same time the second is cheaper and there is also a share. Unfortunately, the dog ate it very reluctantly, had to be mixed into the piano so that it would not disappear. Or the food is not tasty, or my dog is very picky.
Conclusions about the food "Brit Premium"

The site "Give Lapu" would not recommend this food to those who have the opportunity to buy a dog more expensive and high-quality drying (for example, the same Brit Care).
