Hi, I have an 11 week old pup recently brought home. At present he is on Purina beta but I am unhappy with the dereal content. How do I change him onto this without causing major stomach issues?

Have changed my bull terrier pups to this. They have both lost weight and even though introduced over several days has left them with awful wind and loose tummies.

Hi Applaws has posted a reply to this review on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ap... --In any dry food you have to have some starch in the kibble otherwise it will simply not hold together. There are only three starch options available if you are not going to use cereal. These are potato, sweet potato or tapioca. We do not use tapioca for a variety of reasons. One that it is not produced in Britain and we prefer to use British ingredients, tapioca used in the pet food industry all comes from the far east. The tapioca used is called Cassava (Enculenta Crantz). It is processed by being treated with the chemical ‘Sulphur Dioxide’ and is not allowed to be used in human food but is allowed in pet food. Sweet potato used in UK pet food production comes from China and we again prefer not to use it as again as it is not a local ingredient. We do use potato which is 100% British. We are only using the potato starch which is easily digested and is classified a low allergen ingredient.Yes, we do use cellulose for a very good reason. Having spent more than 25 years in the field of dog nutrition I have spent considerable time with colleagues studying the eating habits of wild dogs in the Africa and Australia as well as wolf’s in the wild. We found that dogs thrive better on a meat based diet but we also found that dogs will eat some grass/ plant matter on a regular basis. There are several reasons why dog eat grass. On the most interesting reasons is that the cellulose plant matter attaches itself to hairs a dog digest when preening and cellulose helps the dog get rid of digested hair through its faecal matter naturally and helps prevent the slow build of hair in the gut. We only add 1% of cellulose plant fibre which is enough to help control fur balls.

PETS AT HOME store in Durham no longer store Applaws. Shame on Pets at
Home, one of the very best independent manufacturers let down. No doubt
Pets at Home prefer to store vast quantities of rubbish made by large
and multinational companies!
