The  employees at leading pet food company, Burns Pet Nutrition don’t just produce great dog food they also take time to put something back into their local community. The company which has its head quarters in Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire has five members of staff who have notched up 57 years of service between them working on a voluntary basis for the Mid and West Wales Fire Service.

Peter Morris, Maintenance Manager,  Mike Fitzpatrick who works in the warehouse,  Spencer Chilvers, Graphic Designer and Mechanics, Wayne and Chris Eldred answer 999 calls both during the day and evenings helping to put out fires across the region.

Burns Pet Nutrition offers pet owners a full range of wet and dry premium, complete, hypo-allergenic foods for cats and dogs. The foods were created by the company’s founder, veterinary surgeon John Burns, who has spent over 30 years in pet nutrition. Each food contains a balanced blend of ingredients which include complex, high quality carbohydrates such as brown rice or maize together with controlled levels of protein so that puppies grow at a slow, natural rate and adults benefit from a diet that meets but does not exceed their nutritional requirements.

Burns foods are suitable as maintenance diets for all cats and dogs but are also specially formulated for those that may suffer from food allergies and intolerances. There are no artificial colourings, additives or preservatives in the recipes and Burns avoid ingredients that are known to cause intolerances in pets. Other key ingredients include seaweed, fish oil, sunflower oil and essential vitamins and minerals to support a pet’s skin, coat, joints, bone development and immune system.

Commenting on his staff members John Burns said,

“As a company we believe that it is important to put something back into the community. We are extremely proud of our staff members who are not only enthusiastic employees but are also extremely brave members of the local Fire Service. Fire fighters put their lives at risk everyday and play such a vital part in protecting us all.”
