Dicalcium Phosphate

Added to the food to help balance the calcium and phosphorous levels in Symply Salmon & Potato dog food. A necessary addition as salmon doesn’t contain as much phosphorous as other protein sources.

Vegetable Fibre

A good source of insoluble fibre. This aids the passage of food through the digestive tract, improving intestinal health and stool consistency.


Glucosamine Sulphate is added to assist the maintenance and regeneration of healthy cartilage in joints. Glucosamine is the building block for the production of new joint cartilage and is shown to help conditions such as arthritis and hip dysplasia.


Chondroitin Sulphate is added to help neutralise naturally occurring destructive enzymes in joints and improve the quality of fluid in the joint (synovial fluid). These enzymes increase significantly when joints are damaged or worn but can be reduced using chondroitin sulphate and when used with glucosamine can help re-build damaged cartilage.


Methyl-sulphonyl-methane (MSM) helps reduce joint inflammation and is known for its pain reducing properties.

Mixed tocopherols

All Symply products are preserved with mixed tocopherols (vitamin E), a natural antioxidant which provides a longer shelf life.


Ash is not an ingredient as some people might believe! It is a measurement test that is carried out to determine the mineral content of the food and is required by law.

An incineration test is carried out with the resulting residue giving an indication of the mineral content of the product. The residue left over is known as ash and is expressed as a percentage on pet food labels. This ash is only a measurement and is not an ingredient that is added ie. Burnt ingredients are not added to our pet food.
