Billy And Margot Information

Billy And Margot was founded and launched in 2012 by Marie-Helene Sawle and sold ice cream style treats for dogs.

Marie-Helene Sawle and her brand featured on the popular TV show Dragons Den where she attempted to acquire investment for her brand.

Deborah Meaden took advantage of this opportunity and invested in Marie and her brand.

Since then the brand has expanded beyond chilled treats and now sells the traditional varieties of dog food including dry food, wet food, and chilled food.

Billy And Margot Product Range

While Billy And Margot may have originally only sold dog treats, their range has expanded to a moderate size

They have a small range of dry dog food. This range includes some common ingredients as well as some unusual and unique ones.

The wet dog food range is the largest and includes both Canned Dog Food and pouches of dog food.

Billy And Margot have two puppy food products. These are very similar to the adult equivalents which could make transition straightforward.

Chilled dog food is not a variety that most brands produce, but Billy and Margot have a small range. Chilled dog food is a premium product but one which can be highly nutritious and enjoyable.

Lastly, Billy And Margot’s range of dog treats is split into three categories: Dental Treats, traditional dry treats, and Chilled Treats.

Billy And Margot Nutrition

Billy And Margot employs a canine nutritionist by the name of Marie Jones. Billy And Margot claim that all of their products are designed and conceived by this nutritionist.

The nutritional profile of Billy And Margot’s dry dog food recipes is reasonable but not as satisfactory as some of their competitors. The proportion of carbohydrates could be noticeably lower, and the proportion of protein and fat could be higher. This kind of nutritional profile would better reflect a dog’s natural diet.

Billy And Margot Ingredients

High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients

  • Chicken
  • Lamb
  • Beef
  • Salmon
  • Wild Boar
  • Venison
  • Kangaroo

Ingredients like Chicken and Salmon are staples of dog food and can provide excellent nutrition, high in protein and fat. These ingredients feature high up on the ingredient list in Billy + Margot recipes which is a positive trait.

Other meat ingredients such as Kangaroo and Venison are far less common features in dog food recipes. These ingredients are generally targeted towards dogs with severe allergies and sensitivities as dogs are much likely to have been exposed to them in the past.

These ingredients are known by some as Novel Meats. Find out more about the use of Novel Meat ingredients and Hypoallergenic Dog Food in the following articles.

Unfortunately, Billy And Margot does make use of some lower-quality ingredients.

One example is Pea Protein. Pea Protein is a Pea By-product and is often used by pet food manufacturers to boost the overall level of protein in a formula.

Protein from Pea Protein is considered to be inferior to animal or fished based protein as it does not contain all the needed amino acids and is less easily absorbed.

Find out more about Pea Protein in our article Peas, Pea Protein, Pea Flour and Pea Fiber in Dog Food.

Billy And Margot Animal Testing

At this time, we have no information on whether Billy And Margot participate in testing on animals. However, we suspect that they do not particpate in laboratory or invasive testing.

We believe that testing on animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which we hope will be severely reduced or eliminated.

Billy And Margot Recalls

At this time, we have no information that Billy And Margot’s products have ever been recalled. While the brand is still relatively young in age, this is a positive indication of their safety and manufacturing procedures.

However, consumers must be vigilant for any future issues as there is no guarantee that this will continue. This is especially true for frozen or raw foods which can have an increased risk if they are not handled and stored correctly.

Best Dog Food With Kangaroo – Billy and Margot is one of a select few brands that sell dog food with Kangaroo meat. Kangaroo meat is appealing to dogs with severe allergies and sensitivities and can act as a Novel Meat. Find out more about Kangaroo and the best formulas on offer in this article.

Kangaroo + Superfood Blend Review

Billy And Margot Wild Kangaroo + Superfood Blend Packaging

Kangaroo + Superfood Blend contains Kangaroo and Chicken. While we have no objections with Chicken and believe it is a high-quality ingredient, this is unusual for a formula that uses Kangaroo and may make it unsuitable for those dogs with severe allergies and sensitivities. Chicken is one of the most common allergens, and many dog owners feed Kangaroo formulas to avoid Chicken.

However, this mix of Kangaroo and Chicken provides an extremely satisfactory proportion of protein which would be suitable for the vast majority of dogs, regardless of activity levels. The level of fat in the formula is below average, but this is understandable given that Kangaroo meat is very low in fat. This lack of fat could make the formula appealing to dogs attempting weight loss or looking to avoid weight gain.

The formula makes use of the usual legume ingredients such as Peas, Lentils, and Chickpeas to provide carbohydrates and dietary fiber. Sadly, it also includes Pea Protein which is a low-quality ingredient.
