Dog foods / Re: Puppy feeding advice please!
« on: May 16, 2016, 11:39 »
Ozzy (the 10 week old English setter) actually got sent with Acana puppy and he seemed to be thriving on it so I ended up keeping him on that- feeding recommended amount for him at 6kg is about 160g a day split into 4 feeds although the table on the back I find to be quite "general"- but his poos are very smelly and soft, often unformed like a cow pat almost. I've got loads of it left so don't particularly want to waste it but wonder if either I'm over feeding or if it's just too rich for him?

I'd also like to add he's fully wormed and is very active, and gaining weight well- no signs of illness at all. VERY healthy appetite (greedy pup)

Hi all- have had samples of guru and gentle- for some reason the Jack Russell isn't keen on the gentle but loves the guru.

Is it possible to use Guru and Raw mixed ie one meal raw, one meal Guru etc? I've read they can be used alongside each other quite well.

Then I would have move freezer room but still can feed raw

The guru and gentle seems to come out better than the platinum on reviews then- I have samples coming so hopefully fussy little madam finds them palatable - will let you know how I get on.

I think I'm preferring a cold pressed but to be honest I hadn't considered a good quality wet food. I'll look into that but Guru and Gentle were on my list as well as Platinum- does anyone have any experience of them? They have a specific puppy formula.

Hello all,

Long time lurker, first time poster here!

Proud owner of a very spoilt 4 month old Jack Russell. Currently on the raw Luna & Me Puppy Power Little Dinner patties but not all that enthusiastic about eating them. I had bought a small bag of ZiwiPeak to try her on which seems to have gone down ok.

Here lies my problem- we have an 8 week old English setter coming next week- two puppies, yes I know I'm mad.

I Don't think I'm being ridiculously fussy but I have a few creiteria and wondered if you guys had any ideas;
1) a food both dogs can have

2) something that doesn't take up my entire freezer (at 3kg my JRT doesn't eat vast quantities of the Luna & Me so the storage isn't an issue but with a larger pup up on the way this is going to be a problem)- so realistically raw is out of the window

3) having done my reading and research, I'm not keen on the idea of dry extruded food/kibble due the depletion of nutrients etc- am I right in thinking this?

4) open to the idea of cold pressed, freeze dried, air dried etc

Having said this- ZiwiPeak is going to end up out of budget for both dogs

Any bright ideas? I want the best for my dogs and although I can't be spending ZiwiPeak territory I'm certainly not down the bakers/pedigree chum end of the scale! I've been in the dog food directory but it's a minefield!

I'm also not sure whether I need to be looking for a specific puppy food- if you look at the ingredient breakdown there doesn't seem to be a vast different once you're in "premium" territory

Sorry for the bombardment- just want to get this right!

Anna
