Only just joined and seen your question. As a dog trainer for 50 plus years I certainly think puppys and young adults get a carbohydrate rush after a meal especially after the evening meal. I have fed Symply for many years I use the Turkey and sweet potato

Hi there! I love your website!

Can I ask a question??

We have recently moved our 14 month old sprocker onto Symply (salmon). Her resting has changed completely. She’s barely sleeping during the day and settling down at night about 3 hours later than she used to.

Could it be the large amount of Carbohydrates in the Symply, as listed on your website? We had her on Carnilove previously and she seemed much more relaxed.

She receives over an hour per day at least of active walking

For nearly three weeks, I had started my dog on the Symply light/senior fresh chicken (grey bag), and very pleased to say she has lost weight from 32kg to now weighing 28 plus odd! I am ordering another pack and once she has gone down to the ideal weight, I will start to introduce her to her old food less an amount of this senior food.

Hi I changed my 18 month cockapoo to Symply wet & dry food after having sloppy poos. This has improved greatly but he now eats grass every walk he has. Has the Symply food enough fibre in as I read that it can be a sign of low nutrients?

Recently switched to Symply and the results are very good: no more sloppy poos! Our young cockapoo is enjoying his food and I'm a happy owner.

Hi, I have just started my itchy westie on the salmon & potato food as this food is supposed to guarantee the itching to stop. I have just finished a 2kg bag but she has yet to stop itching. We have been to the vets and she has had to have multiple treatments for the itching like steroid creams and tablets which made her quite ill. I have called symply themselves and found them not to be as helpful as I was hoping they'd be. They couldn't answer any of my questions with a valid answer and kept referring to others in the background who also could not answer my questions. I have decided to continue feeding my westie on this food and as they have just started to produce a wet food I am going to combine wet with dry as my dog prefers it. If this does not work I think I will be forced to try an elimination diet. Do you know of anyone who has tried this? I have tried many other foods which I know is not ideal but I am at a loss of what to do. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Hi Shirley. I'm sorry to hear about your Westie's upsets. Unfortunately, Westies are notorious for skin problems but almost all can be vastly improved, if not cured entirely, just with diet. It can take a while for the changes to work through - often as much as 8-12 weeks, so I would certainly suggest sticking with it for now. Take a look at our guide on feeding dogs with skin problems and please let us know how he gets on. http://www.whichdogfood.co....

Hello Again,
I have had a look at your guide, as suggested, and also read the article on elimination diets.. I didn't think you could use commercial dog food for the elimination diet? I thought it had to be one source of meat which they've not eaten before + veg, or am I wrong?
If so, what foods would you recommend I've tried salmon and potato varieties, in fact, most of them with no luck at all, or perhaps I'm just not leaving her long enough on them to have any effect.
I have read that Westies are not supposed to have more than 10% protein, as it's mainly a too high intake of protein that can cause the skin conditions for them, the problem is, most foods contain 20% and above.
Also do you think it would benefit giving her a glucosamine supplement as the vet thinks she has dislocating patella's on both her back legs?

I forgot to ask will you be reviewing symply's new wet food??

All About Dog Food Shirley 10 years ago

Hi Shirley - apologies for the slow reply, I somehow missed your post.I'll answer your questions in turn:1. An elimination diet can be any diet that excludes all of the ingredients she is used to. For example, if your dog has been experiencing problems on a food with chicken, rice and peas, an effective exclusion diet would be lamb, potato and carrots. While on the exclusion diet, it's also important to cut out all treats and tid-bits until the cause has been identified. It can take a while so make sure you stick with any new diet for at least 8-12 weeks.2. I think the 10% protein figure probably refers to wet foods. For dry foods, less than 20% is generally regarded as low protein but quality is much more important than quantity so try to look for foods that only contain meat proteins and are not topped up with vegetable/cereal protein supplements.3. A lot of dog owners report improved mobility on glucosamine so there's certainly there's no harm in giving it a try.4. I'll get Symply's new wet food online as soon as I can.I hope that helps.

Potato is starch and starch makes dogs itchy.

Hi, just wanted to say that I have the same issue my my Dachshund and I believe it is the chicken. Canagan dog food brand (non- chicken) has worked for us (worth checking ingredients though because food could be labelled as Turkey but it will also contain chicken..). Just though I could be useful.
