I have just acquired a 16 month Working Cocker bitch who was previously in a flat, not a lot of exercise and fed Yora dog food which has bugs in it because apparently she has a really sensitive stomach. She is underweight and will be doing a lot of exercise with me so this food just wont be good for her. What can I feed her that will be kind to her stomach but what will give her what she needs to maintain weight/condition etc?

Has anyone noticed this has changed recently ...used to be gold standard for perfect poop . Now no matter how I titrate the amount down to the lowest range for the dog I cannot reproduce the perfect poops and dog as a result having anal gland issues . Same dog only food batch different. Have contacted them but didn’t get a reply so have moved on....kibble is now darker and smells burnt . Reluctant to keep buying without a transparent QC customer service base.

Used this bag with success for around 2 years. Last month MW sent the wrong bag (salmon & veg) which we only realised after opening it as the packages are very similar. Our dog does not tolerate salmon therefore the bag was of no use to us. MW could understandably not accept a return of the opened bag but refused to offer any sort of recompense for their error leaving us stuck with a £53 bag we cannot use.I was offered a £2 refund because the salmon+veg was £2 less than countryside mix and they had the cheek to call this a 'gesture of goodwill'! I was offered a conversation with a nutritionist which was pointless as I know my dog tolerates countryside mix.It appears they would rather lose a regular customer than take any amount of responsibility for their error.

I've read on some online reviews this would be good for a French Bulldog? I have a 7 month french bulldog and tying to find the best food for him. Please someone let me know their thoughts.

Very pleased with Millies Wolfheart food for my whippet. I had him on James Wellbeloved for a few years until I saw the average food rating after finding this website. I wanted to change it because he stopped eating JWB unless I put a topper on it!!! He just eats Millies no problem and he is not toileting as many times and it looks firmer!!! I feel more confident that I am feeding him decent ingredients. JWB seemed to have salt added too which I wasn't happy with. I also like that I can ring Millies and speak to someone about Nutritional advice too.

I have a 1 year old whippet, did you buy the country mix one?

My dog is on this food as Eden 80/20 was too rich for him. I'm so glad millies does different foods with different meat ratio contents. I put him on countryside mix which is 70/30 and it's not too rich for him and he's doing brilliant on it! Cheaper than Eden too with free postage!

Hi, why does this flavour rate lower than the Turkey and veg ? The Turkey and veg has tomatoe pomace in the ingredients. What's the thoughts on tomatoe pomace, good or bad ?

It would because it's a 70/30 meat ratio. Not a 80/20

Have been feeding gamekeepers and countryside to my two Dobermanns and very pleased with the results, better than everything else I've tried to date and at a reasonable price. I did try the farmers mix too, this did not agree with either dog, causing stools to become loose . I now feed Millies all the time.

Tried Millies Countryside and Riverside mix for my mini schnauzers, as it seemed a high-quality kibble, but have had to take them off it as saliva staining (beard and feet from licking) was horrendous! Switched them to another food and staining gone within 3 weeks! So was definitely Millies that caused it... A real shame...

Have decided to go down the allergy testing route, Bloods taken and waiting for test results now. I just hope this sheds some light on the problem.
Can't bear to see my dog itching all the time,and want to avoid if possible a life on steroids,and baths every week,as I did with my other westie

Thanks Catey for the advice, My dog prefers wet food,so I try to mix wet + dry.
How did you find out what your dog was allergic to? was it blood tests?

Vet seems to think it was the food that caused the problem,especially because of the face scratching,it's not just the millies she's had the problem with, it just increased the problem to a stage where she had bright pink skin, and it became very sore with open wounds. Now she's on antibiotics, steroid tablets and malaseb shampoo. Definitely to high in protein for a westie.
Has anyone else had this problem.. with the constant face scratching??

My neighbours westie is now on countryside and is loving it as you say it was not just Millies and all dogs differ, So perhaps you need to look back at all the foods you have fed and see if there is a common ingredient in them all. I had to do this with floss I tried everything possible to find out why her face swelled on even top quality grain free foods. In and out of the vets we went onto isolation diet no luck still slight swelling on salmon and rice and then raw as I thought it would be best we began with chicken and boom emergency vets with face swellings and breathing issues we then did the tests and found it was a few things chicken was worse so its a baddy in our home we select food carefully now and since changing to MWH we have had great success. Wish you luck in finding the key to the issue. No one food suits all dogs its a long process fingers crossed you isolate the ingredient.

Thanks for the advice, I did contact millies and they recommended the countryside mix for lottie, they also said I should change her metal bowls to plastic ones to see if that would help! But it made no difference. Been on the Burns web site today and they seem to have very good reviews for dogs with skin issues/anal gland problems.
But Burns don't rate very well on this site,however their foods are low protein/low fat, But I'm still not sure having tried so many already,I've spent fortune on trying different foods. Maybe I will have to go down the allergy testing route.
I've also spoke to westie owners who swear by a product called dermacton,so I've orderd a soap bar and spray to see if that helps.

Best of luck Shirley its so hard to isolate,was reading somewhere a lady had same issues with potatoes I wonder if that could be your common ingredient throughout the foods you have tried? hope you get to the reason for this for your dog do join the forum on here its so supportive and perhaps others could help with experiences etc

Hello again, I have been trying to join the forum, but am waiting on the email I need to log on. Some very interesting topics on there, and loads of info. Think lottie had a allergic reaction to something, as her skin turned hot pink and was very hot. She's still on antibiotics (2nd course!) steroids,and now ear drops, because her ears are still pink and hot. She's been sick today, think it's all the meds.

I did have a lab, Penny aged 10, who came to me severely overweight @42kg with very inflamed skin, belly,chin and dreadful itchy scarred ears etc- my vet recommended a fish based dog food. I already used fish4dogs so she was put straight on to that. With time her ears,chin, skin and belly improved although she was on steroids for a very long time - maybe you need to try a fish based diet but always read the ingredients list as some still include poultry fat and egg. Good luck.

Tried my westie on this food, I was hoping this would help with her itchy skin and anal glands. Unfortunately it made her skin 10x worse!!! Probably the high protein content. Will not be using this food again.

Dogs with skin irritation can be intolerant to proteins .
A Different variety with different protein or even a Single source protein should help & Millie's has a great customer advice line .
One of our family has an English Bull terrier who had terrible skin issues , after a month on the right variety of Millie's for her she's shiny & healthy with no more itching or trips to the vet !
