Hi all,

Just out of interest.. what puppy food did/do you use and find to be best?

Boo was on Pedigree Puppy when she came but we have got her off that and slowly on to James Wellbeloved dry puppy food. She isnt overkeen (although personally i think she's just a fussy madam) but i bought a few different things to try.

She seems to like NatureDiet (puppy) but not so much Nature's Harvest. Have also got some dry Argen Grange for her to try. Obviously only in small quantites and gradually 'cos i dont want to upset her tum!

She does like her cooked veg mixed in with any food!! Very Happy

Any other suggestions to the best food you give that will be the most nutricious??

Hi Claire.
Well, Gus was on Pedigree too but we changed him to James Wellbeloved and he gets that sometimes mixed with the JWB meat. He likes it, but can be very fussy. Twisted Evil Don't pussyfoot about with them when they get like this - just be strong! Gus goes hungry if he turns his nose up, and the next again day - hey presto - he is wolfing it down!!! yes yes

I agree with Lynne....if you pussy foot around and i wouldnt give her choice after choice as you will make her worse, just give her one food thats of good quality and leave it at that, the more you change it the more chance you have of upsetting her delicate stomach.

I raise all my puppies on Eukanuba and also feed this to my adults, they have veg mixed in twice weekley and meat as in mince or chicken once a week and they love it.

Hope this helps 👼

Mimi is on Natures Menu puppy sachets, she used to love it but is now quite often turning her nose up & leaving it for a day. She is six months old so I'm going to try her on the Natures Menu raw nuggets again, when the sachets have run out.

mine used to be terrible fussy eater molly was the worst for it and lucy had the runs for weeks when we first got her.
we decided to start them on the natures raw menu, the nuggets are ok if you only have one to feed but with me having three i find it cheaper to use the frozen raw mince, the bloke at pets at home told us its same as the nuggets just in mince form. i take it out the freezer before i go to bed ready for the day after.
anyway sine changing to this they have all been happy even 11 week old ellie our chihuahua, and lucy is only four months old, the good thing about it is that cos its just raw mince you can feed it to any age. you can also mix some veg in now and again too.
i have noticed a real difference since i started using the raw diet about 3 weeks now, not only do they love it but their coats look shiney, their poo is normal, and they don`t have the smelly breath they used to have with other dog foods.
i`m really glad i changed now and would never go back. all my food worries are over Very Happy

Mine are on the raw diet as well and like Adele I think it has improved their coats and no poo problems either.

I must admit I don't mess around with my two if they don't eat up quickly i just take the food up and they wait till next mealtime very rarely do they not eat everthing up then.

Which raw mince do you use Adele Question

I have the nuggets but like you say with 2 to feed it works out quite pricey.

yes sandra, the mince is in the freezer same place as the nuggets at our PAH you can get big bags of mince for about £3 or single 400g packs for 75p i use the 75p ones cos there is more choice with flavors, they do beef,chicken,lamb, chicken&liver, tripe, fish. i use two packets a day between the three dogs, so in all it costs me £1.50 a day to feed mine although ellie the chihuahua only has a tiny amount so i may need to increase as she gets older.
The bloke at PAH has told me its this is exactly the same stuff as in the nuggets and its the same company.

Well Alfie has a bit of a mixture, James Wellbeloved dry food is down all the time then he has cooked chicken most days and occasionally the Natures Menu Nuggets. Alfie has a tendency towards being a bit picky, he will definately hold out for something better if he thinks he'll get away with it lol!

Wispa was on the dried food Science Plan when we got her but she had an upset tummy from day one, after numerous visits to the vet and antibiotic injections which made no difference the vet said that we would have to try different foods till we found one that suited her, we tried James Wellbeloved puppy which she was fine on until she needed to go onto Adult food and we were back to square one with the upset tummy, and so she is now on Wainwrights and some cooked chicken, but if she has any dairy products we have the poorly tummy again.

Alfie's on the JWB Junior at the moment, he's just turned a year old. I am looking to change his dry food again to another brand to be honest as he's not very excited about it, groan the trouble is I worry too much about what's in these dog foods and it turns into a lengthy research project before I change scratch well it did last time anyway, the staff at Pets at Home must of thought I was mad! tongue

When i got Poppy the breeder told me she fed her on James Wellbeloved Puppy. But she wouldn't eat it so i got her Pedigree puppy which she loves. I am going to try her again with the James Wellbeloved Puppy to see if she will eat it now she's more settled. Very Happy

Harvey`s on Natures menu nuggets. I always leave dry food out for him too, at the moment it`s a mixture of Pedagree puppy and Gelert puppy mix, which Harvey isn`t so keen on, so once those bags have finished I`ll have to try him on something else.
