Millies Wolfheart Information
Millies Wolfheart is a premium pet food brand based in the United Kingdom. The brand was established in 2011 in the Yorkshire Dales by Mark and June and remains a family run business.
The brand focuses on using high-quality ingredients and providing a diet high in animal-based protein and fat.
Millies Wolfheart Product Range
Millies Wolfheart has an expansive dog food range. This includes both dry dog food and wet/canned dog food.
The dry food range is the larger of the two and includes recipes with a large variety of meat, fish, and vegetable ingredients.
While the wet/canned food range is smaller, there is still notable variety in meat and fish ingredients. Some of the wet recipes quite closely match or mimic dry food recipes allowing for owners to provide consistency.
The cat food range from Millies Wolfheart is very small and consists of four recipes. Two of these are dry cat food recipes, and the other two are wet cat food recipes.
Millies Wolfheart Nutrition
The nutrition provided by Millies Wolfheart recipes varies. However, most of their recipes provide nutrition that is significantly above average. This includes significantly above average proportions of protein and fat.
Some of Millies Wolfheart recipes provide extremely satisfactory nutrition, including the 80/20, 75/25, and 70/30 recipes. These have sufficient protein and fat for extremely active dogs such as sport dogs or working dogs.
Below is an example of the nutrition provided by a Millies Wolfheart dry dog food recipe.
Given that Millies Wolheart’s cat food range is very small, there is not much variety in the nutrition provided. Thankfully the few recipes that they do produce all provide excellent nutrition. This includes a very high proportion of protein and fat and a modest proportion of carbohydrates, which is ideal for a cat’s diet.
Millies Wolfheart Ingredients
High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients
- Wild Boar
Millies Wolfheart makes use of a huge range of meat and fish ingredients. All of these are high-quality and dense sources of animal-based protein and fat, which should be at the core of every dog or cat’s diet.
In particular, we are big fans of brands that use Salmon and Trout. Both of these fish ingredients are fantastic additions to any dog food recipe. Salmon is probably the most reliable source of the Omega 3 Fatty Acids, which can provide a number of health benefits.
Millies Wolfheart uses some less common meat ingredients such as Rabbit and Goat. These ingredients are often used in recipes designed for dogs with severe allergies or sensitivities. These recipes can be known as Novel Meat formulas.
Other Notable Ingredients
Millies Wolfheart makes extensive use of all three of the most popular starch ingredients found in dog food – Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, and Tapioca. These ingredients provide carbohydrates and some micronutrients and dietary fiber.
Learn more about these ingredients in our articles, Potatoes, Potato Protein & Potato Starch in Dog Food & Tapioca In Dog Food.
Millies Wolfheart uses significantly fewer legumes in its formulas than most other premium brands, but some legumes such as Chickpeas are present. Legumes are so popular as they are relatively inexpensive and can provide a high proportion of protein when compared to alternatives. Learn more about Chickpeas in our article Chickpeas In Dog Food.
Salmon Oil is present in some Millies Wolfheart recipes. Salmon Oil is one of the common oils used in dog food. This is because it is highly nutritious and contains healthy fats such as the Omega 3 Fatty Acids.
Lucerne, which is also known as Alfalfa, is used in some Millies Wolfheart recipes. Alfalfa is used in dog food because some believe it can provide micronutrients and health benefits. Learn more about Alfalfa in our article Alfalfa In Dog Food.
Tomato Pomace is an inexpensive source of soluble fiber, which means it is used by many dog food brands to boost fiber content. Beyond its fiber content, it provides little nutritional value. Learn more about Tomato Pomace in our article, Tomato Pomace, as a Pet Food Ingredient?.
Millies Wolfheart Animal Testing
Millies Wolfheart makes its stance on Animal Testing very clear on its website. There it says, “the only animal testing we condone is our own dogs and cats who happily taste the delicious creations we make. Have no fear, they thoroughly and willingly check the quality of our products for us. Since we use nothing less than human grade ingredients, further testing is unnecessary.”
This is a relief for those who are concerned or take an interest in the welfare of animals.
We strongly believe that testing on animals in a laboratory or invasive manner is an outdated and cruel practice and one which we hope will be eliminated in the near future.
Millies Wolfheart Recalls
We have no information that leads us to believe that Millies Wolfheart pet food has every undergone a recall.
Given that Millies Wolfheart is still a relatively young brand, this is understandable, but it still shows that they take their safety and quality practices seriously.
We encourage all pet owners to keep in the loop on current recalls to ensure they can react effectively.

Best of Millies Wolfheart
Salmon & Veg Review
Salmon & Veg was Millies Wolfheart’s first high meat recipe, and despite their offerings increasing dramatically, it is still one of their best.
It includes a huge portion of Fresh Salmon and Dried Salmon. This mix provides a significantly above average proportion of protein and fat.
In addition, this huge portion of Salmon provides an excellent level of the Omega 3 Fatty Acids at a whopping 4.6%, which is one of the highest we’ve ever seen.
The recipe is rounded out with a mix of Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, and Tapioca. These Starch ingredients provide a modest portion of carbohydrates and some dietary fiber.
Riverside Wet Review
Millies Wolfheart’s Riverside wet dog food formula utilizes a mix of Duck and Trout as its primary ingredients. Both of these are high-quality and extremely nutritious ingredients, high in protein and fat.
While Duck is a less common food for humans, it is surprisingly common in the dog food market and can be particularly enjoyable to a large portion of dogs.
The recipe also includes a mix of vegetable ingredients, each in relatively small quantities. Examples include Sweet Potatoes, Green Beans, Parsnips, and Carrots.
These ingredients provide a satisfactory and modest proportion of carbohydrates along with a variety of micronutrients.
Lionheart Multi-Meat Review
LionHeart Multi-Meat Formula from Millies Wolfheart makes use of a mix of game and red meats such as Duck, Rabbit, and Lamb.
While some of these ingredients are seeing increased use in dog food, their use in cat food is still limited, which makes this recipe quite unique.
Those meat ingredients provide a very satisfactory proportion of protein and fat for a dry cat food recipe, far above most other brand’s recipes.
Despite this, as with all dry cat food, there is a modest portion of carbohydrates, which is an ideal world would be avoided. These carbohydrates are from a portion of Sweet Potato.
