Hi again, so a quick update...
The hyperactivity is increasing steadily...
We feed Eden and she has had no forthglade products since my original post.
We went to a ‘puppy party’ at our vets last night which was a disaster...she weighs 3.5kg and managed to dominate all the other dogs, lab, retriever and cocker.
The vet nurse kept referring to her as the little monster and asked me what we were feeding and said she should never be on an 80% protein diet.
She has tons of energy and if we try to encourage sleep in the afternoon she just boings around in her pen until we let her out.
I really like the ingredients of Eden and feel that it is a good food but am wondering if the hyperactivity/aggression could be a result of food build up rather that needing more sleep as she simply seems ‘wired’ and will never sleep.
Is there an alternative holistic type food that you could recommend with a lower protein ratio?
Many thanks for your time

Thanks for your comments.
I think you’re probably right and it’s just puppyness...
We haven’t had a puppy before and clearly not prepared for such a change in personality.
We shall do more naps, overtired sounds right and yes she had been playing hard prior.
I carefully chose food...and have lots of it...so really hope it’s not the food.
We shall have to be more strict with her routine.
Thanks so much for your good advice.

Hi, I used this website to find a good food for my new puppy before we got her which I think is working out ok (Eden).
I also came across a ‘puppy pack’ from another company (Forthglade) not found by looking here but it looked very good so bought some to try.
Our puppy is only 10 weeks old but does seem to go pretty nuts and very aggressive after eating any of the forthglade products...wet food, cold pressed and treats...it really seems more than just puppy behaviour and we have been quite shocked.
I have tried searching for anything linking this food to any aggressive behaviour but haven’t found anything.
I thought I’d ask here as maybe someone has had any experiences.
She is eating 4 small portions of kibble a day and has treats to help with training.
She has loads of energy. Prefers kibble over wet food. Has a small amount of porridge and scrambled egg for breakfast most days.
Is not a great eater.
The aggression has always happened in the afternoon.
We shall start with holding any forthglade products and would appreciate any advice regarding feeding.

Many thanks for your time.
