Interesting read. The wife researched food and as we shop at costco and trust there products . We are using that. Just weaning him off wainwright's nearly done. Seems to have firmed things up . Fingers crossed

I used to give Sasha Bakers complete morning and night with half a can of pedigree wet food mixed in in the evening, I then switched her onto a supermarket puppy food when she was pregnant, but when she had new had the pups and I called the vet I was told to take her right off the food she was on and the bakers as it simply wasn't going to be enough nutrition for her feeding 8 pups (I felt awful! so ashamed!) and that even once she was finishes feeding the pups to put her onto a better quality food. While she was feeding she was on Virbac Vetcomplex puppy food from the vet, but once the pups were weaned I changed her onto Akela 80/20 dry food - yes it is a more expensive food than the Bakers BUT she takes a smaller portion size for the nutrition she needs, so it works out aonly so many pence per day more expensive, which really isn't a lot at all, and I've now worked her off the wet food and she's purely on the Akela 80/20, so I'm not having to buy cans of pedigree as well, and she's doing great on it. She's always had a shiny coat, but she fairly regularly used to get upset tummys etc, but she hasn't had one since. I used this great website where you put in the age, breed, weight, how much you wanna spend, and it gives you a list of foods with their ratings, reviews, ingredients, portion size and cost per day, it may be that you could get a more expensive food than Wag but the bag will last longer? as an idea, I buy 2 big bags at a time - 1 for sasha and 1 for jet (both are the exact same food but jet's is the puppy version so the nuggets are smaller) that's 70 (35 per bag), so my order qualifies for free delivery, and it does Sasha for a month and Jet for a month and a half x

Akela is more expensive but you are paying for the quality, Bakers and Pedigree have next to no goodness in them and really are full of rubbish! I know a lot of people will still buy Bakers but it really is awful! If I ever see anyone in a supermarket or pet shop picking it up I am always so tempted to go up and advise them to check the all about dog food site.

I bet a lot of them would be horrified at the contents, of course money maybe a huge factor for some people but there is absolutely a lot better out there than Pedigree and Bakers. I do understand though that of course some dogs may only get on with said brands but I still don't like the thought of what goes into those foods.

Absolutely agree - I was so shocked when I realised how bad they are! I told every one of sasha's puppies' new owners not to use bakers especially, and I really do see a difference now they're on the akela, but im not spending any more - Yes its 35 for sasha's bag that lasts a month, but then i was a tenner a week on bakers and pedigree, so im spending sightly less i think for a sight better quality food

What food were your pups weaned onto? Did you send new puppies away with any food? When we bought our last lab 10.5 years ago she was weaned onto Skinners but we had to buy our own ready for her coming to us. My lab now was weaned onto a not so good food(but still far better than bakers/pedigree) and we were given some to take home. I was desperate to change straight away but had to let her settle in a few days before gradually changing over to her Milles Wolfheart, she has been on it since and is fantastic

They were weaned onto the "virbac vet complex baby dog" food that sasha was on while feeding them (vet prescribed food because of her feeding so many puppies), as this was the advice i was given from the vets, I gave each away with a weeks worth of this and instructions to keep them on that for 2 days and then to gradually work them onto the new food the owner had chosen over a 5 or 6 day period (this was what the nurse at our vet practice told me to do), 3 are now ono akela, 1 onto orijen, 1 onto eukanuba, and im not sure about the other 3
