Hi one and all,
im a proud owner of a 14 week old lab cross cocker. I have been feeding him eukanuba puppy kibble food since ive got him as thats what the breeder fed him from the beggining. I also try and give him some cooked meat whenever i have leftovers from my dinners (obviously i try stick to his daily calorie intake taking care not to overfeed him).
now the question i pose is the so called 'super premium' dog foods in Australia like eukanuba, iams, royal canin are actually considered a barely 1 star food on many many sites ive come across on the net (one being Dog Food Analysis - Reviews of kibble). and they are all ridiculously overpriced.
It is costing me a fortune feeding the little fella at the moment, and i can only see it getting worse. Is there a better or comparative cheaper food on the market i can get him onto ?? for eg. Purina. (yes i know its a bit worse then the others ive mentioned earlier, but they too are pretty crappy apparently). I have been thinking of getting him onto purina instead, and just making sure i supplement him regularily with cooked chicken/beef/lamb etc.
Would love to know your thoughts from all you experts!
