    I think I'm going to have to change brands again - though Nutro Natural Choice is working for Frosty. The chicken and rice version is not actually reviewed on the dog food analysis site, and has more meat listed than the lamb ones they do have listed - so I don't know how it would rate.

    Innovo Evo rates in the 6* list but when I googled it - bowhouse online came up and slagged it because Pets paradise has exclusive rights and supports puppy mills. I can't support a chain that supports puppy mills - argh.

    So Bowhouse suggest Artemis instead which is also on the 6 star list. And they recommend a couple of others. Eagle Pack Holistic I think was one.

    Hmm Artemis is even more expensive than Nutro. Sigh
    And I can't tell how much Eagle Pack costs but their biggest pack is more expensive again depending what online shop you look at - bowhouse needs to update their prices to be more competitive but another site I found lists not including GST prices first and biggest which is really misleading. Pet Deli - you need your wrist slapped for that one.

    Bloody hell I better do a search to find what's best for my boys now.

    Thanks for the heads up though, if someone (can't remember who) hadn't mentioned that the brand was awful I wouldn't have known.

    Eaglepack Holistic Select is a good kibble. I had Sumo and Ruby on that brand, but have since decided to feed raw.

    I'll check it out. Not too bad price wise either. Is it good for finicky eaters? I would love to get Jemima on the same diet as the boys.

    I buy mine from Pet Goods Direct - they only stock fish in there as well as pet supplies. To my knowledge they aren't affiliated with Pets Paradise at all either. I can't recall what it costs, but I've got to buy another bag on Monday next week and can let you know then.

    there is not such thing as finicky eaters...just owners who give in when they get puppy eyes and dog doesn't eat...they give something else

    I use PetStock because they are against selling puppies/kittens etc in their stores

    Jemima vomits when we fed her Science Diet. She'll eat anything, problem is they don't seem to agree with her! She's like a hoover.

    First you have to slow her down - put a brick in her bowl. Or you can get bowls with built in bricks - or you can make her eat out of a treat ball - though you need to beware the dog that eats the treat ball itself. Maybe a few kongs that hold all her food (mixed with a bit of yogurt to hold it in) would help. You'd have to feed her separately too. I find competitive eating is bad for dogs and kids. Ie eat as much cake as you can right now or your siblings will finish it off and you'll get none, was a big feature of my childhood.

    And then the Science diet might be the cause of the vomitting. As would be the speed eating.
