I feed a coarse raw complete most of the time with the odd meal a finer complete raw. It suits my dog, he enjoys it immensely. To see a dog enjoy his food and go back and lick the bowel is a joy. It gives the opportunity of feeding different flavours daily, plus seasonal partridge, pheasant etc. I do like moisture in dog food it keeps a dogs system hydrated for all those vital organs. Dogs like humans probably don't drink enough. I realise it is not for everyone and of course there is the freezer aspect. I do wish people would take a few moments to vote, Meg puts a lot of thought into her posts including setting up the recent polls. I'm sure followers of the forum can do better than 9 votes out of 404 reads (2355 total members), so I do encourage you to support the forum and vote.

Five years ago it would have been the Prize Choice range and Burns Hypo-Allergenic Mixer, before then it must have been Forthglade raw but I cannot remember what with. Regarding the poll does a mixer come under "some dry complete? as it is not a fully fledged complete.

Meg thanks for posting. I hadn't read that article before. Indogo mentioned in the article is now the Dogg Canine Nutrition Company.

Good Point Meg. I would be interested to know what chemicals are used instead of BPA. BPA is in so many products.
Royal Jelly is worth researching as regards BPA as I believe there was Human study/trial done in 2006/2007.

Perhaps this news will encourage UK Vets to have a good look at what they are recommending to their clients. Thankfully we do have raw food vets
The documentary film "Pet Fooled" investigating the American dog food industry is out in America. There are various bits and bobs on YouTube about this film.

Thanks Meg, yes the packaging looks different and reminds me of "Beco". Both have attractive packaging. Hopefully their UK website will be up and running with the full range and ingredients soon.

Houndsonline have Edgard and Cooper on their website. I would have liked to have seen the ingredients and weight listed, hopefully they will follow. I haven't found it anywhere else online at present.

"We are offering a mouthwatering 50% off all our 395g Wet Food from Friday 6th Jan - Sunday 15th Jan. " using code.

Excellent thread Coaster. Susan Thixton of Truth about Pet food raised this very question only last month  "Should Pet Food be Required to state Carbohydrate Percentage?" Interesting video by Dr Karen Becker and Rodney Habib.
I did notice that Nutriment state carbohydrate percentage.

If it's priced out of your market then possibly around £35 plus.
