This did use to be a reasonable food, just a bit short on meat (but I used to add extra). I spent ages trying to find a food that suited my food-sensitive pup and as soon as I have, they change the recipe. My dog's great aunt was allergic to legumes so I've always avoided those which is hard now, my current pup is also sensitive to probably chicken and sweet potato.

Wainwrights has reduced the barley (not a bad grain all things considered) and added maize (not good). Also added the equivalent of 12.5% peas - high legumes/potato/fibre (beet pulp) and a low available meat diet has been a suggested possible cause of canine cardiomyopathy in the US.

The ingredients now are: : Turkey (36%) (Dried Turkey 31%, Freshly Prepared Turkey 5%), Rice (26%), Whole Grain Barley (10%), Maize Protein, Rapeseed Oil, Whole Ground Oats (4.5%), Beet Pulp (4%), Dried Peas (3% equivalent to 12.5% Peas), Linseed (2%), Dried Carrots (1% equivalent to 8% Carrots), Seaweed (0.2%), Yucca Extract (0.02%).

I would have paid more for the food as we're all aware prices are rocketing at the moment, but I wish they hadn't changed the recipe just to keep costs low. Now I have only two other foods I can possibly feed my dogs, both of which aren't always in stock and one looks like it might be changing too :-(

Apologies posted the wrong ingredients list!! So they haven't added maize to the adult recipe (just the puppy one, which is still bad), but the peas are still there.

Lamb (33%) (Dried Lamb 28%, Freshly Prepared Lamb 5%), Rice (26%), Whole Grain Barley (22%), Whole Ground Oats (4.5%), Rapeseed Oil, Beet Pulp (4%), Dried Peas (3% equivalent to 12.5% Peas), Linseed (2%), Dried Carrots (1% equivalent to 8% Carrots), Seaweed (0.2%), Yucca Extract (0.02%).

I have had my dogs on wainwright for over 4 years, raised two boxer litters on turkey and rice, I have recommended this food for all the puppy owners as dogs had brilliant coat, was feeling well and poo wasn't big. But for around 6 months, this Large Breed Turkey&Rice dog food became unstable from batch to batch. One batch the food is okay, next is different: size of the pieces are different, smell is different and pieces looks much brighter and very, very dry. All dogs fed by this started to have digestion problem and I am forced to change this food to something else.

I've been feeding my dog Wainwright's Salmon and Potato Adult for a few years now. My latest purchase revealed smaller, pea sized kibble which had a more greasy texture. I returned it thinking they had put puppy kibble in by error. However, all packets contained this new sizes kibble!

I've used Davies ranger for years, recommended it to all and sundry. I've now found out that it contains BHT, a very dubious chemical preservative. They only mention it on their website they dont list it on their bag, they even put 'no artificial additives' on the bag!!!! Look it up.
