I would be most grateful for your personal opinions/experience to help me make an informed decision about choosing a dry complete food to feed my new 10 week old French Bulldog . I appreciate there will be many different views and suggestions e.g. why not BARF/Raw etc but I want to focus on complete foods only. The breeder recommended I feed my pup Royal Canin Junior but I was shocked with the review on this website considering I can get a better food at about the same price. I have concluded that I will continue with Royal Canin for the next few weeks to prevent stressing my pup/help him settle and slowly transition him to another complete food. I haven’t identified any issues so far with Royal Canin as I suppose that is all he has been used to but if I can provide him with a better food I certainly will.
Like so many it would appear, I assumed feeding a well packaged and reasonably expensive foods such as Royal Canin, Science Plan, Eukanuba and others meant I was providing my dog with a complete food that was good, one I could afford and more importantly a food recommended by breeders and vets.
It would be really helpful for your personal opinions on what complete foods I should consider along with your experiences choosing a complete food for your pup/dog. Once my pup reaches about 12 months old I will add tripe/beef mince to any complete I buy once a week as a treat.
Lastly I don’t want to pay anymore than about £60 pm for a complete food. The food directory is a great and a useful tool but I would like to add some personal opinions to the mix before I make a decision.
Many thanks in advance for any opinions/experiences shared.
