Burns Pet Food is developed by a veterinary surgeon who decided to manage health through diet, food would have to be convenient and readily available. Burns is based on the home-made diet which I used to recommend. There are no secret or magic ingredients; there are no added pharmacologically active supplements or ingredients.
As the name implies, Burns Real Food is just that; a simple food which is intended to allow the body to function as it should. Burns is not intended to intervene in order to alter the normal metabolism of the body. The aim is to stand back and let the body get on with what it does best; to maintain the organ systems. This is in contrast to medicinal products which are intended to have a direct therapeutic action.
There are many, many different chemical and physical reactions taking place in the body at all times. Although we can influence one or two of these by drugs, most of these reactions are being carried out by the body itself which is always working to be at its best - to absorb the nutrients it needs, to build and rebuild itself, to resist infection, to eliminate waste products and so on.
