    Hyacinth, i had a look on that doog food analysis website. eagle pack has just as bad of a rating as eukanuba does..arhh talk about confusing!

    angela, we have some of the sentinal yoghurt plus at home but have been using it as training treats. Do you feed your dog this everyday?

    Yep, that I do. Batty adores it.

    Batty is now an adult though. I don't think Sentinel comes in a puppy formula?

    I've tried so many foods it's not funny with Batty, but none (even Innova) have been as good for him as the Yoghurt formula.

    Find what works for your dog, honestly, that's the only way to know for sure. Sometimes it takes experimentation for a while before you find the right one.

    People will say feed this or that due to their own preferences (mine is supercoat and raw) but the truth is the best food is that which you find your dog does best on.

    I went and bought some eagle pack hollistic large breed lamb and oatmeal puppy kibble on the weekend so i'm going to trial that for now. The eagle pack website say it's fine to feed kibble only or should i still be adding some cooked chicken to mix it up? I'll stop with the rice as the kibble ingredients state brown and white rice as a main ingredient.

    Buckley is only a staffy x but at 4 months all ready weighs 15kg. The lady at the store told me he should be on the puppy one until 12 months. Do you think once i run out of this bag (which will probably be in a few months) it will be fine to switch to adult??

    Di, when you say you feed supercoat and raw..what kind of raw food do you mean?

    I get boxes of bones from the butcher and freeze them. My adult dogs get a bone a day mostly. About weekly they get some sardines in their kibble and they also at times get suitable table scraps.

    If one is out the front that dog will also go off and catch a rabbit and eat it all at times.
    That happens quite frequently lately with so many around and near the farm house.
    They are also enjoying killing mice in the shed in their pen. I have not seen whether they eat them or not. I do see whole dead ones around in there and the pen.
    I have to be vigilant in removing them as of course they like to roll on them after they have been dead a few days and stink the most.

    When they were younger they would get chicken necks, wings, yoghurt, meat scraps, table vege scraps of every type so they would be used to eating everything put in front of them and not develop delicate tummies.
    Two of them are now not fussed on chicken so I rarely feed that.

    just a bit of an update...Buckley is doing great on the eaglepack now. Dry biscuits are all i feed him now. I was mixing chicken with it for a while but he still was getting the diarrhea, so maybe his body doesn't like the chicken :S As far as bones go, I'm only giving him big beef bones now. Had to stop with the chicken wings because he was swallowing them whole and then vomiting them straight back up.

    I have just gone back to Artemis, but this time the fresh mix weight management, She ate it no problems last night and she is usually quite fussy.
    The Artemis is natural and grain free.
