Some of you are a little familiar to the problems of my gorgeous rescue dog .
Rex has been an absolute dream to adopt from a local shelter. He is unbelievably gentle and sociable with people and other dogs. He is a fantastic addition to our home.
The only issue we have is his fear of noise, that he encounters on a simple walk in the local area.
I have previously detailed his issues in another thread ( http://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/forum/dog-foods/3/behaviourist-recommended-we-try-breakthrough-dog-food/1130/
and I've given info on a diet that was recommended by our vet.
Unfortunately the recommended diet didn't give the anticipated results, so we've decided to try a similar food to see if there's any noticeable difference.
Pooch and Mutt is somewhat cheaper than Breakthrough, that Rex has been on for 2 months, but the Calm & Relaxed food claims to offer very similar remedies.
Interestingly the Pooch and Mutt scores better than Breakthrough using this website's evaluation method, so technically we MIGHT see an improvement.
Hopefully things are that simple, but time will tell.
I realise that there is no definitive food for our little friends and we can only try to find what works for our individual needs, but hopefully a little shared knowledge can help our wee boys and girls.
Rex has only been on Calm & Relaxed for 2 weeks so far, so there's nothing to report yet, but I plan to keep him on this for 3 months for evaluation.
Progress will likely be slow, so I can't promise dates for updates, but I'll keep you in the frame nonetheless.
Thanks for your time and interest.
Lee and Rex
