Dog foods / Re: Pedigree reply about there food
« on: Oct 07, 2014, 20:08 »
Of course, if your dog is sensitive to one of the ingredients that we use in the food then the product may not suit and a hypo-allergenic diet is a better fit for your dog.

It was this that stood out for me  all that says to me is its not our problem its yours
the only plus side i give them is that they were the only company who replied to my email out of 7 company's
also this reply from pedigree seems to make out that i was attacking there produce but all i asked in my email what they thought of the ingredients in dog food and is there any concern of some of them so they didn't really answer my questions

Dog foods / Pedigree reply about their food

As a concern of what's in the dog foods  we feed our dogs i decided to send some of the company's a email  of what they thought of  ingredients  that are not suitable for our dogs and confusing information that's found on the foods these were just a few  of the questions i asked and below is a reply from pedigree do you think this information is correct as they seem to have a poor rating on here.

Dear Michael,

Thanks for getting in touch.

I can confirm that we don't use artificial colours or flavours in any of our food and all of the raw materials are passed as fit for human consumption.

Our products are all produced with help from the vets and nutritionists at Waltham; the world's leading authority on petcare and nutrition and we go to a lot of trouble to make sure that they are nutritionally complete and easily digested.

Of course, if your dog is sensitive to one of the ingredients that we use in the food then the product may not suit and a hypo-allergenic diet is a better fit for your dog.

If you'd like any further advice or information, please don't hesitate to let me know.

 
    
Kind regards,

Dog foods / Re: Markus Muhle
« on: Oct 04, 2014, 19:11 »
i always weigh the food each day anyway as i bought some digital scales just for this purpose if the kibble was smaller it probably would be OK to fill  a jug to a level were you know is the correct weight but not sure if it would be as accurate with the larger kibble
I'm not sure if they do a smaller kibble which could be one of the problems what put owners off who have smaller breeds which is a shame

Dog foods / Markus Muhle and other cold pressed dog food
« on: Oct 03, 2014, 19:49 »
just received this today first time i have tried it got a very good deal on it got 2 sacks 15kg for £48 including delivery which will last me around 2 months with the use by date isn't till Feb next year should be fine for freshness 
the food its self would suite the larger breeds when it comes to the size of the pieces and if diesel was reviewing it for taste he would give it 11 out of 10 [forgive him hes not good with numbers  when he gets excited ] will have to give him daily amount in to 4 portions till he stops wolfing it down

would say all the site is useful if choosing something it would be the instant review generator its easy to use all i do is  if there's not already a review on here i find a site that as the product with the ingredient information then paste and copy to this site and that's it a much easier way to understand what's in the food

General pet chat / Dogs or Cats or Both
« on: Sep 28, 2014, 19:49 »
what makes us decide whether to share our lives with dogs or cats or both as i love and respect all animals and feel sickened by peoples actions of neglect and cruelty towards them

why do we choose a dog or a cat is it to do with our upbringing  of having them in our lives from growing up  because as far as i can remember we never had cats only dogs

there's also supplements you could had to the dry food as i use yumega plus which was advised from my vets as my dog as a skin condition there are cheaper alternatives other than yumega plus salmon oils which will work just as well

Dog treats / Re: Do you feed treats to your dog?
« on: Sep 28, 2014, 19:12 »
i use dentisticks cut into small pieces but only for rewards on walks out  on rare occasions i will get him a knuckle bone from the butchers  some of my friends say i am mean not to give treats in the house but surly a long walk in the park  is what our dogs love most of all

as you probably know with the new diet you have carefully put together your dogs will be loving the new taste as for adding more fibre i would hold of that idea and what i do if i change my dogs diet is when i first did this i found out the right weight of his breed and got him to that weight and then weighed him once a week for a few months and when i changed his diet again i just weighed him once a week for two months which will give you a good idea and the peace of mind that the daily amounts are right

General discussion / Re: Good dog feeding on a budget

i would say that lots  of dogs don't find raw veg as appealing than cooked 

12
i too watched it and the first thing that caught my eye was some of the food that was weighed out was the type that had colouring added to it don't know if i am 100% correct but i see that as a bad sign and i avoid it at all cost as its just another gimmick to make the food more appealing and as you pointed out there was no mention of what's in the food isn't that like someone going on a diet and been able to eat whatever they like as long as they weigh it out each day it made me wonder if they were playing it safe not to bring up this issue s the only thing i can think of  but it should have been as important

I think the problem is that owners tend to only read what's on the front of the labelling of  how great this food is and there's nothing better for there dogs and don't bother to look at ingredient  and think  its a safe bet as long as its a chicken or beef etc.  flavour the bigger company's have the upper-hand over smaller company's when it comes to the general public and that is the brand name i bet if you asked someone which brand is the best one for your dog bakers or markus muhlne and a safe bet there going to say bakers i also think that a lot of owners  don't even think about what's in the food as long as the dog eats it then its a great food probably in a lot of cases the reason there wolfing it down is because its packed with sugar and the dogs bouncing of the walls and the owners then saying they cant cope with the dogs bad behaviour. As for people who look for advice well pointing them to this site if i were going to advice

as i know myself with diesel who as a rare skin condition he was diagnosed by my vet and was put on steroids which did work but as my vet told me they are only a short term solution as they can have bad side effects over a long period of time and can effect there immune system. you could try supplements like yumega plus i have to give my dog a bath every week with a shampoo  scrub prescribed by my vet which i now get from a online store what surprised me was this shampoo scrub which is called hibiscrub is what is used also in hospitals for me its a big help as it cleans the skin and helps with the scratching

General discussion / why don't the big company's step up
« on: Sep 26, 2014, 18:36 »
while searching for the most suitable dog food for diesel my main concern was the right ingredient that were of a good quality  and within a certain budget and without this website would more than likely still be pulling my hair out  but ive  decided to try markus muhle naturnah complete. Up until now i had not heard of it before  so why can a smaller company like these produce the correct ingredient along with a good price but yet the bigger company's rant on about how good there food is and insist its the best food for our pets when 9 out of 10 times it clearly is not the case surly instead of spending millions on packaging and advertising why not actually make the right food for our pets because at the moment the only thing they care about is money
