    Default Burns food & pet shops

    Anyone else having problems getting Burns?

    I always order SiânE Burns high oats from my local pet shop. They do not stock high oats only the main Burns food. But they always make sure they have a bag stored out back for me.

    Today I went in to get the food to be told this would be the last time, as Burns were no longer going to supply the pet warehouses and would only be selling online.

    This works out more expensive for me. I have looked on the website but they don’t say anything on there about it, so was wondering if anyone else had been told this?

    I haven't heard this, but will pop into my local pet shop and check, i hope they don't as like you say it'll make it more expensive.

    Hi Davy

    I just had a load direct last week dry food incl High Oats for Poppy and their new cod wet food and of course dried carrot and fish treats ,I think Burns is great and the added bonus of permanent firm poops ,what a blessing.

    Davy,

    i get mine direct too - can you order with someone else close by and then you could order more to get the free delivery option?

    I've just got back from the pet shop, the owner knows nothing aboutthis at all, and showed me leaflets that had come with her burns order this morning (asking if they want to order the new burns pouches). So as far as she is aware there is no problem?! Maybe worth you ringing burns themselves and asking?

    hI

    I bought some of the new Burns wet food Cod and Arctic Char and just use a bit as a taster on top of the girls Burns biscuits and it went down fine.

    I get my order from the vet, but this is Ireland and they probably have a different arrangement here. Ive never seen it for sale in a pet shop.

    Good news

    I email them and they answered back that it wasn't true. So the petshop suppliers are telling porkies.

    They also ask for the petshop number so they could personally call them and explain that this isn't the case.

    I would look for another stockist, it sounds to me like the petshop do not want to go to the trouble of getting it in for you. Many vet practices stock it try ringing around a few see if there is anywhere else close by. Good luck in your search.

    I agree, plenty of Vets stock Burns and my local groomer also stocks it (very random!). I'm sure if you ring around you won't be looking for too long more
