Firstly, hello all. Ive just joined here and looks like there is endless info on pretty much everything!
Ive read a few threads now on different dog foods.
My partner and i have a Golden Retriever (10 months purebred) and a German Shepherd (9 months purebred pedigree. His mum was pure black and dad was a black/tan. It looks like he has taken mostly after mum, he is black on top and tan on the tummy and the bottom of his legs).
We feed them Supercoat Puppy and Platinum Meat Roll (from Woolworths) along with chicken necks. They are fed twice a day, in the morning a small bowl of Supercoat and in the evening a bowl of Supercoat with about 200 grams of Platinum Meat and 2 chicken necks each.
They are both very active, have nice coats and seem to do well on it but i havent read a lot about these brands. My problem is that a lot of the food talked about is high end expensive food which i cant afford. The Supercoat is about $40-$50 for an 18 kilo bag which lasts a while.
I bought a bag of Pedigree biscuits (it was on special!) which ill never do again because apart from reading that it is not good for them their farts were eye watering.
On reading a few of the posts ill be adding some vegetable oil and sardines to their diet. Do you have any suggestions for a decent quality meat that wont cost me a fortune? Does this seem an OK diet for these breeds of dogs?
