Our APL (Angell Pets Ltd) dog food is undergoing a change of packaging. The new look is to match general changes in customer preferences already showing in the industry. The new packaging will also give a clearer range definition and image.
There will also be a change in the weight of the smaller sizes (Super Premium ONLY). The 2.5kg bags will be changing to 2kg and the 7.5kg bags will be moving to 6kg. The large 12kg bags will not be changing. Again, this change reflects the general direction over the last couple of years in the industry and gives our customers a clearer price benefit over other brands of hypoallergenic foods. For example comparing a 2kg bag of James Wellbeloved lamb and rice at £9.42 to a 2.5kg bag of APL lamb and rice at only £6.99. Obviously with a small reduction in size to match the size of the Wellbeloved bag, the price difference will be even greater.
The changes in pack size will result in a corresponding reduction in pack price and will not result in any increase in cost per kilogram. In other words it is not a hidden price increase, just a resizing to match the sizes already used in our popular grain free range to give a standard APL range size.
APL working dog food is not changing. This will still be in 15kg bags.
This change will take place over the next couple of months as old packaging is used up and new packaging comes on line. During the change over period some products may appear in the generic red bags we use when we have run out of certain bag colours. Rest assured the products are not changing at all. It is only the packaging and in some cases, pack size that is affected.

Angell Pets has a tradition of supplying quality natural pet foods, based on the natural diet of the particular animal. We have just increased the range further with the introduction of our own brand APL grain free complete food for cats and natural cat treats.
Cats are obligate carnivores and must eat meat to live a healthy life. The amino acid Taurin is only found in meat and cats must have this in their diet. Therefore healthy cats should be fed a high protein, meat based diet. Have you looked at the ingredients and analysis of your cats food? How much actual meat is in the bag. With some very well known supermarket brands (and virtually all supermarket own brands) the answer is very little. Meat and animal derivatives is not meat. It is whatever is left after you have used the actual meat and the bones and cartilage of the carcass (usually termed “meal”). Often the protein content of the food is made up of wheat or maize gluten (the protein element of grain), a cheap and inferior source of protein, as there is not enough meat protein present..

Angell Pets APL range now includes Turkey grain free, high meat content cat food and high meat content poultry treats. This is alongside our existing, highly popular APL grain free dog foods.
APL working dog food will be in short supply for a few weeks. Due to a fire in the factory resulting in the loss of one of the production lines, the manufacturers are having to stream line production for a number of weeks.
Unfortunately this means production of the bottom end lines has had to make way for the more popular items in the range. We still have some APL working dog food left but when this is gone we will not be able to get any more until March.
In the intervening period we will of course source an suitable alternative and keep sufficient stocks of that available for our regular customers. Although the alternative actually cost us more we will be keeping the price the same.
This ONLY effects a few lines and only the working dog is completely unavailable at the moment. Most other lines in the APL range are not effected at all (one – Fish and potato with Allergy X – has a temporary shortage of one particular size).
Our apologies for any inconvenience caused but we are trying to get the situation returned to normal ASAP so we can resume supplying APL working dog food.
