I am in the opposite camp to spooks review. I tried my puppy Golden Retriever on Eden dog food which they advise is suitable for all ages yet he suffered incredible diarrhoea from it, even after a gradual introduction over two weeks. I moved him onto this great food and instantly his stools firmed up and he started looking in great condition again. He was always a fussy eater and would turn his nose up at all food. This gets eaten up straight away and he looks at me for more every time!Great food with quality ingredients listed plainly on the packaging with simple feeding guidelines.It highlights that different food just sometimes doesn't agree with some dogs. You can buy the best food out there but sometimes it just doesn't fit with the dog. Lucky for me, in this instance, it did!

I don't disagree with this being a great quality food at all. Brilliant ingredients. Unfortunately, it caused my 8 month old German Shepherd to have chronic diarrhea from pretty much the day we put him on it. We spent a fortune at the vets ruling out parasites/internal problems, hoping it wasn't the food. But it was the food. It just did not agree with him. It happens. Switched him to Millies Wolfheart Hunter Mix and no longer do I have an explosive mess to try clean up several times a day.
