I swapped to large breed puppy on the advice of my vet for my American bulldog, we had been successful in feeding her the wainwrights superfood so gradually increased this into her meals, big mistake! Although she likes the taste and we get a clean bowl every time we now have loose stools, we have tried for over a week, but looks like we are going back to her old food again.

I have fed this to my giant American Labrador for more than 8 years without incident. This brand at least, I would occasionally change the food flavour because my lab, who had a sensitive stomach and a corn/wheat intolerance, could eat any of the Wainright's foods. I see nothing wrong with them, though I do wish that as a store brand they were a little cheaper than the competition.

Can anyone from the pets at home nutrition centre please tell me what the kcal/kg for this product is. My malamute x tibetan mastiff is very happy on it but i want to ensure i don't overfeed him as i'm aware that growing too fast in such a large breed can lead to increased risk of hip dysplasia. Thanks Pets At Home!

I have just started feeding my puppy this food and all seems to be well so far; I was researching a good mid-price food using this website and settled on this one to feed with some raw meat and some fresh fruit (apples) and veg. However, I have noticed that some people seem to be rather negative about this brand because it is made by Pets at Home. What is the problem here? I have looked at the ingredients in the food and there appears to be nothing horrid (i.e. causing health or behaviour issues to dogs) in it. Is this just dog food snobbery or have they got a point? I am now aware that this is a really emotive subject and would be interested to hear what others think. The bottom line is: I was looking for a balanced kibble at a mid-price to feed alongside fresh veg and some raw food, but have I got this wrong? Is Wainwright's food inferior to, say, James Wellbeloved? Or perhaps Arden Grange? Or am I worrying over nothing? Any advice welcome.

I think it's just snobbery. I'm now using Wainwrights for our lab puppy and he's loving it. Initially I was using Evolution Naturally - but at £11.19 for 1.5kg bags I couldn't afford £60 per month + to feed him!
Wainwright's comes in at the right price, a few more carbs but a good kibble imho

Likewise my lab pup loves this, is growing well but not over weight. The breeder recommended not to use high end food as it doesn't have enough fat and one of his pups fed this way was much more underdeveloped when he came to board. He also has bits and pieces of carrot, apple etc during training and I also use wet trays from wainwrights.
