I transitioned my Boxer cross Staffy to this from Royal Canin (he never had issues with RC, great on it actually, just that he's older now, saw the lack of nutrients in senior RC and the brand overall had really lost it!!)
Gave it a good 2 months because it takes time for dogs to settle in to new food. But sadly, it made him SO gassy (the smell was a bit eyebwatering) and half of his stools were loose. We could see his bubbly belly was causing him discomfort. Have transitioned him off this to Wainwright's Senior and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!! So not great for our pooch unfortunately.

My 9 year old German Shepherd loves it, and does really well off it. Very competitively priced. Poos are perfect lol.. She has much more energy and is much brighter and happier. Her stiffness is also much less pronounced.

Had high hopes as a relatively cheap but still decent food, 100% not for my dog. He enjoyed it, however cleaning up the aftermath has banished it forever in this household!

Nope step up to naturals not for my shepherd. Poop was huge and way too soft, not a good food for her whatsoever.
