Firstly I would like to thank Nutriment for giving me a forum to write this brief introduction to me and my dogs, but also for being the best food sponsors out there! My name is Ashleigh Butler and I am going to be competing with two dogs, Sullivan a 6 year old crossbreed, and Eliza, a 5 year old Bearded collie at the World Agility Open for Team England.
In May 2019, 17 handlers, 22 dogs, 2 Team Managers and their supporters, will travel out to Ermelo in The Netherlands to compete at the World Agility Open Championships. The Team are very proudly sponsored for the second year by Nutriment Raw, who provide an optimum raw dog food diet to support the canine athlete.

There are still plenty of fear-mongering myths that […]
Many ‘herbs’ we totally overlook, instead, these poor cousins of herbs we know get branded as mere weeds! However much what can be found on your walks can be useful little additions to a great diet and have been used for centuries to help common issues. So instead of walking all over them, next time you
The idea that our pets are with us for a short time will no doubt fly through everyone’s mind… “are there any ‘recipes’ to longer and healthier lives, what can I do to make sure they live to the fullest, how do I keep my older pet healthy as long as possible etc.”… there are
Obesity is the nations’ pet epidemic, it’s so important to fight the flab! Being overweight is a serious risk to your dog’s health; carrying too much weight impacts on joints, bones, spines and can greatly increase the risk in dogs who are more prone to develop diseases like diabetes and heart disease. It is important to keep our furry friends healthy and
Good dental health is vital for good overall health, not having this means that bacteria in the mouth are free to roam the rest of the body, causing issues elsewhere such as heart and kidneys, as well as long-term suffering for your dog or cat and huge vet bills for you. More than 80% of cats and dogs in the UK over three years old are in need of dental work.

Roger… was diagnosed with the disabling spinal conditions of
