As we squeeze out the last of the summer this September, the Scamps have been enjoying one of Lily’s Kitchen’s seasonal limited edition recipes while soaking up the remainder of sun. And what’s more is that there’s currently 25 per cent off the brand’s website, making for the perfect excuse to stock up on some soon-to-be-discontinued flavours and firm favourites.
The Lily’s Kitchen Surf & Turf tin, which launched in June, offers a summertime supper of beef, salmon and prawns akin to the refreshing dish often taking up residence on pub classic menus and beachside special’s boards.
The 400g wet food is a grain free recipe, made up of a whopping 60 per cent freshly prepared meats, comprising 40% beef, 15% salmon, and 5% prawns, completely free from meat meal and rendered meat, ensuring a protein-packed meal for your pooch that’s perfect for pets with digestive issues.
Vet-approved and nutritionally complete, Surf & Turf incorporates a medley of vegetables such as potatoes, peas, asparagus and spinach. This not only adds a variety of textures but also brings a healthy dose of essential vitamins and minerals to your dog’s diet. The inclusion of asparagus offers a source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A and dietary fibre, while the peas and spinach contribute to a wholesome balanced recipe.
The 400g size is convenient for a single meal or for smaller dog breeds, but we tend to use it as a topper for their usual Canagan kibble to make mealtimes more exciting. If your pup can’t get enough of Surf & Turf, there’s also the option to purchase it in a larger quantity of six tins.
The only drawback, which I’ve voiced on multiple occasions, is the increasing price of Lily’s Kitchen tins, which may be a bit steep for some pet owners. Limited edition recipes used to be around £2.75, such as this 2020 Christmas recipe, and while I appreciate that the cost of ingredients is higher three years on, some may consider the increase to £3.70 per tin to be on the high side, particularly when there are more affordable alternatives from independent brands widely available.
That said, the quality of ingredients and how much Phoebe and Frank enjoy the recipe make it a worthwhile investment for what could be considered a premium dining experience. However, be money-savvy and keep an eye out for discount codes. We find the best way to do this is by signing up to the brand’s mailing list for exclusive deals. There’s now 25 per cent off sitewide at the time of writing (September 4), with no code required and the discount added at the checkout automatically.
We took our tins away on our annual Cornish getaway at the end of August. I mean, what better time to enjoy a Surf & Turf teatime treat? The dogs – particularly Phoebe – can become a bit fussy with their food on holiday due to the change in scenery, but a scoop of Lily’s Kitchen on top always ensures that it’s polished off ready to fuel the day’s adventures.
Whether you and your pooch plan on soaking up the sun, splashing in the sea or napping under the parasol, you’ll have their beach day dinner sorted with the Lily’s Kitchen Surf & Turf. Snap up one of the remaining tins here.
