In true poodle fashion, my miniature bitch has decided she doesn't like cold pressed food after all. Initially I got Gentle Cold Pressed Goat after discussing it with Beate. My dog absolutely adored it, kept begging for more (or should I say walked about grizzling and moaning and beating everything up), the suggested 70-80g per day just didn't seem enough for her. Started adding some cooked veg but had to up the amount of cold pressed food too. Have ended up reducing it a bit and giving her cooked white fish, chicken breast etc. with the cold pressed. By the way when I was getting low on it and there seemed to be a supply problem, I ordered some Walker and Drake fish version of their cold pressed - she won't eat it, yet when I got a sample she did!!!!
A few days ago I was looking at the Pure Pet Food (raw food but air dried) site again, tried ringing them to ask questions a couple of times but busy so I didn't leave a message. Surprised to get a call back anyway (my suspicious mine wondered if they are struggling with sales). Upshot is I have bought and received a transition box of the Terrific Turkey which is what he suggested for my girl (sensitive tummy, itchy skin etc.) but to my horror there is a lot of carbohydrate in it when checking on AADF information.
Healthwise, my dogs stomach generally isn't too bad but she seems to have more output than goes in. Being graphic first poo of the day good, next softer and progresses to very soft and a bit of mucus. She sometimes does four lots during the morning walk although some is so small I don't know why she bothered. She has always had soft poo right from when I got her - when she was on Purina HA (after being diagnosed with IBD) it went the opposite way, I did wonder if she was able to absorb the nutrients better on that. When I got her she came with raw food and Purina Opti Start medium puppy kibble. I didn't want to feed raw so changed to canned dog food and a different kibble. Her scratching is getting worse but neither the groomer, myself or the vet can see any problem with her skin, apart from a bit of scurf, the skin under where I find it is clean.
I haven't weighed her for sometime but last time she was 7kg. It was a bit of a struggle to get weight on her when younger but she has matured now (3 in May).
I might add that I asked a question on a poodle Facebook page, I wanted to know if anyone had fed Pure Pet Food to their dogs and did they like it. Only about four people answered and one said their dog liked the chicken but not the beef. Ate the chicken for four months then wouldn't touch it. Another said she had to throw it away, her dog wouldn't eat it and nobody she knew wanted it, someone else said she wanted it for holiday use (as she raw fed) but dogs wouldn't touch it so she bought a small freezer instead.
Has anyone on this site successfully fed Pure Pet Dog air dried raw to their dogs? UPDATE: Today my dog won't touch it!
