Default Kibble and wet food mix recommendations please!

Hi, we have been feeding our 33 week old Lab Arden Grange Junior large breed kibble but it tends to give her a bit of a runny tummy at times.

We recently switched to a 50:50 mix of dry kibble (Arden Grange) and wet canned food (Pedigree) which seems to suit her digestive system much better.

Not sure how good quality Pedigree Chum is, so does anyone have recommendations for wet dog food please?

Many thanks,
Richard.

Chum is not one of the premium foods, but really, it's all about what suits your dog, and if she's happy on it then great.

Pedigree is very poor-full if Animal derivatives and fillers.

Aatu,Simpson’s premium,milloes Wolfheart are all goodquakity wet foods. There will be others too

This is a great site- you can choose foods by wet/dry

Hi Richard. I personally prefer the Arden Grange Puppy/Junior, rather than the Large Breed bag, as it's first ingredient is fresh chicken. It's the paler blue bag. I am wondering if her runny tummy is perhaps down to over feeding? A lot of the times if you go by the manufacturer's instructions on the bag it can tend to be quite a lot of food. The other consideration is perhaps a grain allergy? It is a process of elimination sometimes, but I would weigh what you are currently giving and take it from there. Good luck

Hi
I fed my first lab on Arden grange as the breeder fed her labs on this I found she suffered from loose stools from time to time and gained a lot of weight esp after being spayed.

My second lab was brought up on Millies wolfheart countryside mix from the 3rd day I brought her home at 8 weeks of age, amazing food perfect stools and steady growth and weight gain. She did not put on any excessive weight after being spayed either.

Usually loose stools from a puppy is caused by a slight over feeding. Changing the food and it going away is usually because the food contains less bulk. (Different brands often have a higher or lower calorific value so need more or less fed.
