This food has sent my dog bonkers. He is drinking water like it's going out of fashion. He is barking at the moon and his poo is not normal 😩😩😩

The ingredients are awful, why would people feed this to their dog?

I don't understand why this food is rated so poorly. My cocker seems to love it (but she's a cocker and will eat anything)

Hello. I wish to feed my dog with food I have made up myself ( Just for a trail period of 2 mths ) Made up with fresh white fish / chicken and either rice, pasta or cooked potato mixed with carrots , peas, broccoli. All together weighing out to 200-220 gramms each portion. I would like to know is what brand of biscuit can I use as a filler?
My dog is a working feild spanial
He is 6yrs old
Has been diagnosed with colitus ( on tinned food )

Hi Ian. Apologies for the slow reply. The proposed diet looks very good. A couple of suggestions - brown rice or oats would be infinitely better than white rice but either way, make sure any grains are very well cooked. Sweet potato would also be much better than white potato and pasta, since it is based on wheat, is often best avoided. With home cooking, the key is variety as that is the only way to ensure nothing is missing from the diet.If you head over to our Dog Food Directory and select 'mixer biscuits' in the filters panel on the left, your get a list of products that should fit the bill. They'll be ranked in order of their rating, so the nearer the top, the better we would expect them to be for your dog. Hope that helps. Please let us know how you get on.http://www.allaboutdogfood....

Have you considered feed raw Ian? Why do you want to add biscuits?

Hi kedecama, I think it may be a 'bone' shaped kibble that contains min 4% rice.

Can you explain to the not so informed what 4% rice in dog bone means please?

Sign in to reply
All About Dog Food kedecama 7 years ago

Hi Kedecama and apologies for the slow reply. Exactly as Michael said, it means that rice makes up 4% of the bone shaped biscuit in the same way that the '4% chicken' is only in the brown biscuit and the '4% peas' is only in the red one. Since each colour of biscuit probably only makes up fifth of the food as a whole, this leaves a huge amount of the formula unaccounted for.
