Hello, thank uou for your replies, apologies for nother coming back sooner.
Hi LS25LEE, Regards the Royal Canin, I was of the same opinion as you, just mix it in with the platinum food as a tempting extra. Then I read on the platinum site that you shouldn't mix it with other kibble even if introducing for the first time. Something to do with the way it's made and different digestion rates .... arghhhh!
Hi Tinyplanets, yes Addison's is common in Poodle's (along with a fussy attitude to food lol) and I have spoken to the vet about diet. Fortunately, her blood levels are very good now she's on medication so there is no need for a special diet
I have now made a big change in their food. I've started buying the natures diet mince (2kg bag). I cook the mince in the microwave (as per the packet instructions) I boil up some rice, carrots and broccoli, mix it all together and then put meal size portions in tubs ready to feed. I'm in the process of finding dog meal recipes and so far they have licked their bowls clean every morning and night! Their stools are a lot firmer also. It's working out at a cost of between £1.50-1.75 a meal and it's not that labour intensive as I'm cooking their veg along with mine and my partners. So far so good
