Small dogs suffering from depression are the target for a new range of seasonal dog food from Butcher's Choice.

The new winter dishes in the Seasonal Recipes line-up, which includes human favourites such as shepherds pie, turkey with winter vegetables and apple crumble & custard, have been designed to combat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) in smaller pooches during the colder months. The recipes will rotate with the seasons for variety.

The company sought the advice of a pet psychologist, who said that dogs suffering from SAD would benefit from following a "tailored diet matched to their physical and emotional needs".
