Dog treats / Re: Puppy chew... for 3 months old.
« on: Yesterday at 17:19 »
My dog enjoys a bully stick every now and again too.  She wasn't very interested in her antler until I took Dotties advice and soaked it . Now she has nearly chewed it all down but it has lasted ages.

I can't really say for this one as my current dog is my first.  My Mother used to feed her dogs butchers tripe and table scraps. I remember that they all had bad wind :-X

Dog foods / Re: Can food affect urine output?

Hello and welcome to the forum, I have ever had a puppy or a male so can't really say. Could he be marking and not emptying his bladder each time.  I noticed that my dog goes a lot more when she has cold pressed food and not her usual raw dinner, She also drinks a lot more so that explains why. It might be worth asking your vet for advice on this issue.

I am no expert but like Dottie, when I read your post, the first thing that sprang to mind was nutriment low purine, I agree that it would be worth contacting them for advice. They are generally quite helpful.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

I am not sure if any are dangerous but I suppose if it was to be given regularly, I would be a little cautious regardless as some elements can build up over time. From what I have read, not much on the market designed for that purpose is terribly effective.

Hello and welcome to the forum, Looking at the fat content and comparing the foods in the dog food directory. It looks like the tins are higher in fat. 33 %  compared to 25 % That may explain why slightly less is recommended.

I occasionally add some cold pressed to my dogs dinner but just sparingly and I just give about 10% less raw complete. I am not to precise but then it isn't often. So not sure about that one sorry.

Very interesting reading and a good discussion. I am looking forward to seeing what the changes mean for the ratings.
I agree that it is hard to say for certain the benefits of raw over different cooking methods or vice versa. Lots of factors involved and different theories around. There is enough information around for people to make informed choices.

A belated hello and welcome to the forum, I am glad you found something to try and hope you get on well with your chosen food.

Hi Rita, good advice from Dottie but I just wanted to say welcome to the forum. Your feedback will be much appreciated, thank you.

Seasons greetings to all and a big thanks to everyone who contributed to the forum last year.  Hopefully 2017 will bring lots of new and interesting foods to choose from, for our dogs.

Bearing in mind the season I thought this may be useful for anyone's pooch who may have helped themselves to the goodies.
