    Thanks for the offer (and the heads up Leo) . You are both obviously lovely wamr and generous people. I am actually winding down from rescue but I would love to be offer you an alternative? PAWS rescue.

    Denise from PAWS will be rescuing Pugs for me and she also rescues fluffies...specifically, those hairy little Shitzu type dogs *lol* Denise goes above and beyond helping these dogs and I am sure she would apprcdiate the help.

    Mine don't mind Nutro - but then again they'll eat almost anything

    I'm trying a new supermarket food as a mixer - it's called Sentient?

    I was just wondering which are the bloat prone breeds. Jenna has been on puppy Eukanuba since we got her with a chicken neck most days and I am now concerned about bloat. I do make sure she is never exercised after a meal which i think can increase the chances of bloat but can it just happen anyway?
    Otherwise she is getting on great with the Euk.

    Thanks
    Try this link Tkay for more information on GDV.

    Gastric Torsion and Bloat in dogs

    It's a cruel and agonising complaint and can kill within hours. I make no apologies for being a fuss pot about it.

    Hope the link is of some help to you.

As new foods straight off tend to upset his tummy alot anyways, as long as it mixed at first with something he has/had he is ok

    Can i ask what flavour of the nutro you get, lamb/rice or chicken/rice just out of curiosity?

    Oh well, food to charity. Have a dog weatherbeeta coat too that I got for Leo and was to big and never bothered returning it so it can find a new home on the weekend too! (Plus some chicken pet mince Leo WILL NOT touch, It can go too) Anne/Pugrescue I live near you if you want? Can drop off on the weekend (Although dont think you will want the coat for your puggys, way to big! LOL)
    Sounds good Leo! Hope he likes Nutro as much as my girls do.
    I tried both chicken and lamb. They like both but maybe slightly prefer the chicken and rice.
    Let us know what Leo thinks

    Thanks everyone for the info. Just something else to worry about

    Unfortunately, after having lost Holly so young and in such a horrible way I am a little paranoid this time round.

    I can relate to that. After loosing 4 year old Maxi to cancer I became all paranoid too.

    Oh no! I just fed Mimi some of the Supercoat that I bought tonight at the supermarket . I ran out of the Royal Canin as life has been hectic for me lately and I can't get to a Pet shop. They both loved it!! I noted the preventative measures re. bloating and notice that Mimi doesn't drink much or any water after her meal. I wonder too if we are going to be up all night with number twos.. Maybe not a good idea to feed it to them in the evening? How do you all feed your dogs? Morning for the main meal or night?

    Hope you're not up all night with no2s Mim
    Alot of the times it's not the food, it's the sudden change of food that makes them go more often.
    I feed my girls at night.

    mine are fed at night and sometimes in the morning - Rufus is going to need three meals a day to get some weight on him as he seems to be dropping weight rapidly since his operation - might be pain associated with the infection - off to the vet for a check up tomorrow
