    Default Anyone Heard of or Use 'Dog Pro Plus'??

    Hey guys,

    My breeder has recommended I change from super premium Nutrience Holistic Giant breed to "Dog Pro Plus working dog with whole egg." There's a huge difference in price (ie: $150 versus $32 for 20kgs) and I am a bit wary going off super premium, especially if I am feeding it as a complete food. Anyone have any thoughts or experiences?
    BTW- 22 month old Newf

    I have some expereince with Pro Plus, whether I like it or not, NN. Lol.

    Firstly though, what are the reasons she suggested the switch, as I'm sure she would have stated various reasons???

    She said that she has always fed her dogs super premium (they were on IAMs Chunks I think) but had a woman bring back a pup to say hello and the pup looked amazing. It was from the same litter that the breeder had retained one and she said it just looked so much healthier and well grown than her pup on IAMs. She said that she had checked out the ingredients and nutritional value etc and it was very similar to the super premiums. However she was very specific about getting the one with whole egg- said it was much better than the other. She changed all her dogs onto it and it's been a few months now and she says she's getting good results.

    I guess I'm a bit dubious because I usually believe you get what you pay for and risking the health of George is not something I want to do to save a few bucks!

    Well for those who feed dry food, it has been recommended by several breeders to me.

    Just so long as she is not trying to get quicker growth out of them, which would seem rediculous as she is a breeder!

    Why doesn't she just give them raw eggs, anyway?

    I've not heard of it Newfie to be honest. Might be best sticking with what you are currently are using.

    Newfie....I think you should stick with what you know!

    Unless there is a specific reason for the change eg health reasons etc.

    If you want to add raw egg into George's diet then just add it into his current food.
