This food is terrible. I thought it was meant to be recommended l! It gave my 11month old lab multiple runny poos a day and really smelly wind. Ugh!

Really poor quality food. It baffles me that this is pushed by so many vets.
It's bulk manufactured for cheapness and the nutritional value is poor.
We had very loose, smelly poo whilst on this which led to our 5 month old needing his anal gland expressing already! The vet was surprised.
The unnatural flavouring coating it seems like the flavouring they put on pringles.
We've struggled with car sickness and have found that with SP even after several hours of eating he'd throw up undigested kibble. On his new food, if he's car sick we don't see any trace of food.
