Tarimoor thanks for posting. The only way forward is for owners to participate, that seems like a good turnout to me.

I've had a response from Edgard & Cooper, they have apologised for the delay and are working on putting the ingredients and typical analysis on their UK website. They replied in good time which is always a good sign.

Meg, I also could not find any ingredients lists or typical analysis. I have contacted Edgard & Cooper regarding this and waiting a response

MajorMajor, thanks for posting. The phase two trial study form states "There are no restrictions on breed of dog for the phase 2 study.  Dogs must be at least 6 years old, 40 pounds in weight minimum and in good health, without significant pre-existing conditions"
Based on laboratory studies, we anticipate that this regimen of rapamycin treatment could improve healthy longevity of typical pet dogs by 2-5 years. Whether there are in fact dogs with heart issues, actually on the trial I do not know.
The article below also states dogs have to be healthy and over 40 pounds.

General dog chat / Is our environment killing our dogs?
« on: Feb 07, 2017, 18:53 »
I thought this article was worth sharing as it brings home the compromises dogs have to make to fit in to our home environment.

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. http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/news/2012/dog-toys
Royal Jelly is worth researching as regards BPA as I believe there was Human study/trial done in 2006/2007.
