    My Dogue is the same on wheat based foods like Uncle Albers. Mine almost went bald. His skin pretty much fell apart, cracked, weeped and he stank in the space of a week and a bit. I had to malaseb him for ages to get him back to normal.

    Never seen a Dogue do well on a cheap diet only, or one containing high wheat content. If they were doing OK on what they had why don't you cook once a week instead, or freeze big bags of it once you made it up. I just use the Vets All Natural now for 3 dogs and turns out cheap, and no cooking required.

    Yeah I def think it was think Uncle Albers cheap crap..
    The Vets All Natural by Dr Bruce , is that the raw meat you are talking about ?

    I have tried every food and the only food that is suited to our dogs is chicken mince
    and lots of it..I have to cook up 2o plus kilos of the stuff and freeze it for each night..
    It's a pain in the butt but it works for my dogs..Was told about the Uncle Albers,
    decided to try it and it's shit..

    Do you have 3 Dogues Nekhbet ??

    Yep. Take them off it. I tried Pedigree Working once and my boy came out in a horible rash within days, much like you describe.

    I know cost is a factor, but try and stick with what works for them.

    If I play around with my diets I do it outside of critical periods, ie not growing, not pregnant etc etc. Which means the adult boys ften have to be the testers!

    Also, I feed chicken and lamb mince, from our butcher. I often mix t with cooked rice, but when I don't get the cooking done I mix the raw mince with Coprice Working and they do really well on it.

    The Kibble they have been on for some time is Coprice..
    They were doing well on this until a friend mentioned this Albers stuff.

    They get chicken meat rice pasta & vegies every night, 1 kilo each.
    Plus bones / trotters here and there..

    Some people say that Coprice is crap but I tried Royal Canine and they
    didn't eat it..It was still in their bowl at the end of the day..
    So far Coprice is what works for them so I will go back to coprice..

    Can't believe this happen at this time when she could possible be pregnant.
    Both are on medication to fix it.. I should of known not to muck around
    with their food, especially at this crucial time..DAM IT..

    Yes I use raw ... do you have to cook it? I have one Dogue and two Malinois ( who eat as much as the dogue lol), also used to have a rottweiler.

    I use a combo of chicken and beef mince for animals (has carcasses minced into it) as they just didnt have as much energy from just white meat. I feed 9 ... no make that now 11 ... ferrets on the same thing

    Yeah I'm also asking, Why cook it?

    I don't cook any meat and mine get mostly raw meat and vegies these days, vegies aren't cooked either, just straight thru the blender. On the days I don't have vegies I give them Coprice working dog with the meat.

    As I said in one of my previous posts it didn't suit my Gordon Setter, she went hyper. I've only ever had one hot spot on my own dogs, it was on the setter and started the day after she was bathed. Hot and humid and I obviously didn't try her well enough.

    I have to cook the meat as my girl vomits..
    She will eat it but vomits later on every time..
    Real pain in the butt..
    I just gave my male raw tonight actually and her
    cooked...

    And my vet said it def isn't hotspot that they have,
    I thought right away yep hot spot from the heat we
    just had but apparently not..


    Trial an error I guess.
    They are back on the Coprice tomorrow..
