Five generations of expertise in animal nutrition and 100% Irish ingredients are at the heart of Go Native – a new complete range of dog food, treats and dental sticks from Connolly’s Red Mills.
The Connolly family has been making animal feeds in Co Kilkenny since 1908 and has used that know-how and commitment to quality to create this ultra-premium, grain-free range. 
Go Native has been developed by nutritionists and vets at Connolly’s Red Mills’ purpose-built facility and crafted in their kitchens. Go Native is a complete diet for all dogs, whatever their size, breed or age.
“A century of know-how, care and attention at every step has gone into creating this exceptional dog food range,” said sales and marketing director Gareth Connolly. “We’re proud that Go Native is produced using the highest quality, sustainably-sourced, Irish ingredients.”
Fully traceable and sustainably sourced from trusted suppliers, Go Native contains 70% meat from a single meat source – either organic herring or salmon from County  Donegal or free-run chicken and turkey from Counties Cavan and Monaghan – combined with superfoods such as vitamin-rich kale, spinach, broccoli and carrot. 
Connolly’s Red Mills’ stringent quality control goes a step further – the company even makes the poultry feed that is given to the duck and chicken it selects for Go Native!
Recipes include Duck with Apple & Cranberry, Organic Herring with Carrot & Kale, Organic Salmon with Spinach & Ginger and Chicken with Potato & Broccoli. 
All ingredients are tested in Connolly’s Red Mills’ on-site laboratory and the entire range is grain-free, reducing the risk of allergy. Go Native also contains no wheat, maize, soya or corn, so is 100% gluten-free as well as free from genetically modified ingredients. 
Go Native Dog food is packed using Connolly’s Red Mills’ unique Nutrient Fresh Management System.
Treats contain 30% meat and come in four varieties: salmon, herring, duck and turkey. They are cold formed and suitable for dogs over six months.
Go Native dental super sticks have a unique rough texture and spiral shape to reduce tartar build-up and the formation of plaque and come in two varieties: Carrot & Sweet Potato or Pumpkin & Broccoli. The dental super sticks also contain ground peppermint for fresh breath.
To celebrate the launch of Go Native, Red Mills hosted a special dinner party for some very special four-legged guests. They all thoroughly enjoyed themselves, plates completely cleared with not a morsel of Go Native left behind. The meal was then polished off with a tooth-cleansing Go Native Dental Superfood stick before the guests headed home with goodie/doggie bags.
