Golden Tickets Still to Be Won In Vintage Bags On Sale

by Burns Team Writer

Dogs go mutts for pet food maker’s competition

18 golden tickets are yet to be found across the UK, with the campaign due to run until all tickets are discovered.


Welsh pet food company, Burns Pet Nutrition, is giving dog owners across the UK the chance to win a year’s supply of free dog food, in celebration of its 25th anniversary. To mark the milestone, the family firm has released limited-edition vintage look bags, with 25 winning golden tickets hidden inside.

Lucky owners who find one of the golden tickets will bag themselves a twelve-month supply of Burns Pet food for their prized pooch, meaning breakfast, lunch and dinner will all be on the house.

Who has won already?

Two Oxfordshire pooches and one Leicestershire dog have already bagged themselves golden tickets. Thirteen-year-old Labrador red setter cross Milo, from Saxelbye, near Melton Mowbray, is the latest winner of the competition.

Owner Helen Murphy was shocked to find the golden ticket inside his latest bag of Burns while preparing Milo’s evening meal. She says: “We are very happy to have won a golden ticket. Milo is a rescue dog from East Midlands Dog Rescue. He is a gentle faithful dog which my late husband doted on and he has been a source of great comfort to me since my husband’s sudden unexpected death seven years ago.

“Over many years my dogs have been fed on Burns. Burns has even helped to treat one of my dogs who developed intestinal problems later in life which even vets at Cambridge University failed to cure. At my wits end and following the advice of Burns nutritionists, I changed my dog’s food to Burns’ Pork & Potato range, which to the amazement of my local vets, brought about dramatic improvements and gave my dog two extra months of life.”

Milo joins nine-year-old Labrador, Teal, from Oxford, who has also found a golden ticket. Owner Claire Vickers was shocked to find the golden ticket inside her latest bag of Burns. She says: ““We are thrilled to have found a Golden Ticket. Teal has only ever been fed on Burns food and we wouldn’t use anything else, so this is great news!”

Four-year-old Border Collie Jasper, from Didcot, Oxfordshire, who was one of the first golden ticket winners. Jasper’s owner, Libby Mulvey, plans to spend the money she will save on pet food on Jasper.

She said: “Jasper has been on Burns ever since he was a puppy and absolutely loves the food. He wolfs down his dinner every day so it’s great news for both of us that we got a golden ticket!

“As Jasper is very toy orientated, the money saved over the next year will be spent on getting him some more doggy accessories he’ll love.”

18 golden tickets are yet to be found across the UK, with the campaign due to run until all tickets are discovered.

The winning tickets are hidden in promotional bags of Burns Original Chicken & Brown rice variety, which can be purchased from independent pet shops across the UK as well as online retailers.

In addition to launching the competition, Burns Pet Nutrition also donated a quarter of all profits to charity over the last financial year to celebrate the significant business anniversary.

Established in 1993 by Veterinary Surgeon, John Burns, Burns Pet Food was founded on the principle that feeding pets a natural, healthy diet is key to helping them thrive.
