Tuggs better than raw? Our research with Glasgow University students

July 24, 2023

"In order to assert the nutritional value of Tuggs’ insect-based dog food, Tuggs worked with Mordor Gundogs, the renowned gundog breeder in Perthshire, to trial our insect-based dog food against premium raw dog food. We enrolled veterinary students from the University of Glasgow to run the trials. Overall, we wanted to test whether puppies would put on the same weight as other puppies fed premium raw dog food (to discern the digestibility of our insect-based food), and examine their energy levels, stools and overall body condition. We ran similar tests for other working dogs."

Is Tuggs Worth the Price?

July 24, 2023

"Tuggs is a freshly-prepared dog food made using human-grade meat & fish, fresh veg and insects. Tuggs is delivered to you frozen in order that the food retains the majority of its nutritional value during transport. Our food has at least 65% meat & insect in each recipe. Consequently, our food is likely to cost more than supermarket dog foods or some raw dog foods."

Transitioning to Tuggs Meals

July 24, 2023

"Transitioning your pup onto Tuggs should be done gradually, and our nutritionist has created the above guideline for you to follow. We suggest that a small volume of Tuggs is mixed in with your dog’s current food, incrementally increasing the volume each day for 7 days. After a week, your pup should be fine to gobble down a whole portion of Tuggs!"
