Canine & Feline Nutrition Advice 


Ness Bird is a registered veterinary nurse, and holder of the Certificate in Canine and Feline 
Veterinary Health Nutrition. After 15 years practical experience as a veterinary practice nurse, 
NVQ assessor and technical writer, and over 13 years experience at Arden Grange, Ness has 
an in-depth knowledge of the practical aspects of feeding dogs and cats. She and the team 
are always happy to help provide guidance should you have any queries, and we can help 
with a very wide range of topics.

Although we have an extensive library of fact sheets, individual circumstances and needs 
can be very variable. Completing our questionnaire will help us to provide a tailored response. 


Here are just a few of the many subjects we can offer help with:

What to feed (e.g. when to change from a growth diet to adult food, or from adult to senior/light, 
and which of the Arden Grange treats are suitable for puppies or kittens).

How to make the change to Arden Grange from another dry food brand or from fresh food, and
how to transition from one Arden Grange product to another.

How much to feed / how frequently to feed.

Helping dogs and cats with sensitive skin and / or a delicate digestion (especially those passing 
loose, inconsistent or excessive stools).

Nutrient, ingredient, manufacturing and storage queries (e.g. meat source queries and the shelf 
life of the products).

Diet & behaviour queries (e.g. whether high protein diets cause hyperactivity in dogs).


Seek your vet's advice first

If your cat or dog is unwell, we always recommend that you seek your vet's advice first. We do not 
supply prescription diets, and whilst our recipes may be beneficial to many animals, we must highlight
that they are not a substitute for veterinary intervention in the case of a sick animal. We are however 
very happy to liaise with your vet and offer guidance (if safe and appropriate to do so) in the event of 
your pet suffering from a nutritionally responsive medical condition.

Whilst every effort will be made to assist as quickly as possible, please be aware that a response may
take up to 3 working days. Please address urgent enquiries to enquiries@ardengrange.com or call us 
on 01273 833390 (option 3).
