Dog foods / symply wet food
« on: May 30, 2017, 20:40 »

we have discovered symply wetfood but noticed on the all about dog food pages that
the food is not rated yet. the dry food is. does anyone feed this
to their dogs. we have started feeding it and so far so good. looks like
good ingredients


i've asked another question about pooch and mutt but i'm asking what food would be advisable to
feed my dog because he suffers with loose stools bad wind and all of a sudden very hyper. he was fed raw. it lost lots of weight. was 8kg and went to just under 6kg and the more ravenous he became the more weight he lost and the more we fed and decided it wasn't for him and vet ran tests and he's been off raw for 2 months but only gone from 5.9kg to 6.5kg. we started on eden fish but it went right thru him.  on barking heads bad hair day he was ok but hyper. trialling millie's 60/40 turkey lamb and tripe but he seems super hyper. then carnilove remainder but not agreeing. i just want a food he will settle with and can't overload his tummy so guess he needs higher fat ? or does he need more carbs. so confused and just want the best for him. need to know what i should be looking for on the food dials on this website when researching food. i was thinking of trialling pooch and mutt but not sure. what would be s good food for putting on weight.


does anyone feed this food the calm or sensitive one of pooch and mitt
and wandered how your dog is doing on this. it doesn't have a bad score on the food finder. i have one dog who had to come off raw food as he became very unwell. it wasn't parasites but merely he could just not cope digesting it. he was verging on a skeleton and blood tests suggested he was suffering malabsorption. he was on barking heads coming off his raw food and this is ok for him but don't want to keep him just to one food long term. i have tried some of the higher protein foods and he gets the runs and acts crazy so clearly he can't eat these foods. we have tried carbi live and millie's as well as eden and all give him digestive upset terrible wind and weight loss. the calm pooch and mitt is just turkey so wandered whether this might be a good option but don't want to waste anymore money. i'm keeping the homeless people's dogs on the street currently well fed with all my food donations.


I have a 6 month old male springer x poodle. When i got him he had the runs quite badly. vet did some tests and he didn't have any parasites etc so it was put down to food intolerance.  We had him on bland diet - steamed chicken and this made it even worse.  hence the reason the vet suggested fish and the change in stools was instant. so we stopped feeding chicken based and switched to fish based dry brand - Fish 4 Dogs. He got a bit bored after a while and kept turning his nose up so i did some more research and decided to get natures menu country hunter tinned salmon and potatoe or venison and blueberry, which i mix into his dry and he devours it every mealtime now and still we have solid poo once or twice per day.

What i would like to know is there a better brand of dry food on the market for him that i can buy that is better than fish 4 dogs that is either fish based- grain free - no chicken either just in case this is still an issue for him.  I was told fish 4 dogs was a good brand but i note that on the reviews they don't come up as high as some of the other brands.  i am a bit stuck because there is too much to choose from and thought maybe others would be able to help. I just want him to have the best food possible, i don't mind if i have to spend a bit more, so long as he gets quality and remains healthy and happy.  Im happy to order online.

Also i am looking for training treats - again so much choice out there. he likes all the fish 4 dogs chew treats but need something smaller for training but again chicken free.
