Hi All,

A  year ago i was asking advice about changing Freddie's food over to help with his allergies and anal glands etc and i thought you would like an update.

I initially used Forthglade for about 6 months but then in September moved him onto Naturediet "Feel Good" range.
He mainly has the Fish and the Salmon packs and things have improved immensely. He has gone 4 months without anal glands being done and he is completely off the Apoquel tablets (thrilled with that). I have no idea what has caused this improvement but i suspect it is the limited ingredients. He occasionally has the lamb variety but that can cause runny poop. The only negative is actually opening the carton!!

For treats he has the Apple mini treats from Forthglade and Anco Sea Jerky and Dried Sprats.

I must add that i also give him a teaspoon of Physillium Husk every morning and a teaspoon of Plusbac (probiotic).

Dog foods / Feeding a cockapoo raw or wet
« on: Jan 15, 2018, 10:57 »
Hello. This is my first post but i have a dilemma about doing the best for my 2 year old cockapoo.
He is currently on Natural Instinct which suits him well - but he still has to have his anal glands emptied every 8 weeks or so and is on tablets for his itchiness. With regards to the anal glands the vet suggested adding rice to his diet.....
This has started a thought process and i am wondering if i should (reluctantly) try him on something like Naturediet wet food that has brown rice included. Kibble most certainly caused digestive issues so would not return to that. Has anyone on here moved from raw to wet and found improvements in their dog.
Thank you in advance. x
