    That page confuses me, Sean. Because of the Nutra-vite roll. They claim it's great for allergies because it is all natural. Doesn't that mean that their other rolls are not all natural? The do mention no preservatives, but I wonder if they still have artificial colouring or flavours in them? It's especially the colouring I want to avoid.

    Lucky lady - Is there are reason you use past and rice? Because dogs don't process pasta and rice, neither has any nutritional value in it for a dog. In some dogs it can cause hyper activity due to all the sugar going into their system (bit like kids).

    Without going into exact amounts because I don't measure.

    Minced chicken frames
    Lightly cooked veggies mashed into the mince
    Raw meaty bones
    Whole chicken frames
    Chicken necks
    Raw egg
    Tuna

    Good point Beloz. I'm not sure. I guess i just feel its a better product than the other brand rolls i was using. Maybe i just fell for the marketing. I did such a lot of reading about dog foods that i just ended up confusing myself with all the info and got to a point where if Mojo was doing well on somthing i just stuck with it. I read on other forums that people using it where happy and didnt really find any negatives about it so i went with it. I do notice a lot more veggies in it and none of those 'unidentified chunky things' i would often see in the other brands. I'll have a look at the rolls in the fridge and suss it out a bit more.

    I don't buy our dog food, my mum does as i look after her dog's during the week and in payment she buy's the food for all three dogs. She usually get's raw offal & mostly lamb or beef hearts for them to mix in with there dog roll. My OH tries to tell me that too much raw heart is bad for them, is that true? Most of the time for dinner they have raw hearts and tongue chopped up and mixed with a little bit of dog roll (whatever is on special) and for breakfast they get a bowl of biscuits and a couple of chicken necks or brisket bone thrown in the backyard to keep them occupied whilst i'm at work.

    Hmmm all the research I have done and the vets that I have spoken to who have actually studied dogs dietary needs say uncooked is better for them. Just not in large quantities, I feed no more than 1 - 2 per week.

    Hey Beloz,

    For what its worth i read the packaging on 3 diffrent rolls (they only had 3 left when i went in). The Pro peak, meat'n'veg, and Nutra vite. They all contain no preservatives, colourings or artificial flavourings.
    The Nuutra-vite has some sort of oils in it that the others dont as well as lamb, mutton,chicken and rice. It didnt state exactly what sort of oils though. Fish maybe ? Ive got a brochure lying around somewhere. After reading all the diffrent ingredients i didnt see anything that concerned me on any of these rolls.

    If I fed good quality Kibble I would be broke..........I spend about $30-$50 on meat and bones a fortnight on my lot. The rest is just cheap stuff, like dried soupmix, cheapest oats available, and veggies form the veggie garden or leftovers. I have a 30kg little dog, a 50kg mini newf, a 68kg male newf and a 72kg Big Girl newfie..........They eat 750-1000gms per day.....Hot days less, by thier choice.........Lots of bones, often their evening meal is just whatever the Butcher has given us. At present they are chomping on beef brisket and ribs....Yesterday was pork trotters.

    I do sometimes use a cooked meal in the evening (wintertime), because they love the rice/soupmix/meat/lupins and raw oats.

    If we are on long trips for Obedience or showing, we use "Black Hawk"....We just change over to it when we run out of RAW on a trip........Never any issues, no slow gradual changes or anything and they love it. It is like fish and chips to us. Only sometimes. I often buy meat and bones in any supermarket when we travel for them. At one Obedience trial after a stand for exam, the Judge said "your dog smells of a lovely meaty bone" LOL, breakfast

    I will try anything that is colour/preservative and wheat free..........mainly because of Annabelle.........Allergies, very severe

    I am using some fabulous stuff (additives called Augustine approved) which is a powder I mix with their meat.......and coconut oils. Seems to really help the coats. And Annabelle approves
    Pets are forever
