Advantages: Crunchy and dogs love them
We have a beautiful black Labrador called Holly who is nearly 13 years old, and have been buying Purina Winalot Shapes as a treat for her for ages.
Shapes are for adult dogs and not really suitable for puppies.
They come in an 800g box which is mostly green showing pictures of the different shaped dog biscuits as well as an adorable Labrador. (My favourite breed.) I believe you can also get much larger bags/boxes. The packet claims that 'every dog has his favourite.' This may well be true but my dog hasn't told me her favourite yet as she seems to like them all!
There are six different shaped biscuits which are:
A black paw print (This contains min 4% charcoal)
Cream coloured bone
Cream coloured star
Brown "W" presumably for "Winalot"
They all have the word "Shapes" written across each biscuit.
These crunchy biscuits can be fed as part of your dog's main meal or, as we do, given sometimes just as a treat. We always give Holly a couple of Shapes first thing in the morning, if we go out leaving her behind and also just before bed.
Winalot Shapes are made with wholesome ingredients. They are fortified with vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids for health and vitality, they also help to maintain strong teeth and healthy bones,
The box has a feeding guide printed on one side. It recommends:
Up to 15kg weight 2-13 biscuits
15 - 30 kg 13-22 biscuits
30kg and above 22 -30 biscuits
Our Labrador is about 26 kg but we do not feed her more than about 8- 10 biscuits per day. Although she is almost 13 years old she does not appear to have any trouble crunching the Shapes and is always interested in having one. In fact she is sitting near me watching carefully as I write this as I have her box of Shapes on the desk!
The biscuits have a slight smell (no doubt a strong smell to dogs!) which is not unpleasant. To my nose all the different biscuits smell the same.
As the biscuits are dry, it is important to make sure you have a supply of clean drinking water available at all times to your pet. We have noticed that Holly always goes to her water bowl after eating her biscuits.
I paid £1.57 for an 800g box in Somerfields. I think this is good value as a box last 2-3 weeks depending on how many you feed each day.
Summary: A perfect treat for your four-legged friend!
