How long did it take you to find a food right for your pooch?

It took me years if I'm honest, we tried tripe, barf, raw and to my total surprise the food which I feel works for my boys is tinned butchers!!

It's gluten free and doesn't cause wind and their poops are always the way they should be.

So how about you?

Quite a while once his skin problems started to surface. JWB (cereal free) mixed with a bit of tin wainwright's (cereal free) seems to work well so he's been on this for at least 2 years now

Takes ages to find the right good doesn't it.

It took a while with Reuben but since sorting out his allergies we do quite well on food and have found Orijen is perfect for Reuben but sadly a bit pricey. He is now on K9 grain free from Jolleyes. I have had some JWB which is got cheap off a friend but he has been chewing his feet and started to eat other dogs poop so once this bag is gone he won't be having it again.

Belle on the other hand will eat anything and nothing tends to disagree with her. That said I feed her the same as Reuben for ease

Raw works best for me. I gave them both some left over cabbage on Sunday morning and Elsdon's farts were just horrendous, serves me right  spinner smile 

However when we go away in the caravan I only take so much frozen raw and end up giving them Nature Diet with no side effects.

Mine are also Raw fed with Taste of the wild grain free for breakfast and I find it works best for them, Although my collies have never had anything different.

Cassie has a mixture, she has mainly raw, with chicken wings for breakfast, she then has usually raw for her tea, but sometimes I feed her kibble with nature diet tray food mixed in too..
I do this as when we go away to stay with friends or family its easier to feed kibble and the trays

I still struggle with Cody.

He has had the butchers tinned before but a few of the cans are chicken and he can't have that.

I recently discovered the Webbox Prime chubs in my local pet shop. They are gluten free and come in flavours other than chicken. I tried him on some but they made his poo a bit lose even with his usual Burn's hypo mixer so, for now, he's back to the mixer plus the nature diet packs. The price is killing me though but it seems to be the only thing that works for him.

Enzo has always been on JWB and had no problems.

When we first got him a guy with a staffy told us it was the best stuff so we tried it and just stuck to it.
