Have never used the dry food, but the meat is certainly good for sensitive tums. I've given it to my dog who is epileptic and has - amongst other things - a very sensitive tum, and he has always tolerated it well and thrived on it.

I have used Chappie and it is fine - vet said it was a food
they recommend to people with dogs that have allergies.

It's the tins of Chappie that Vets used to recommend for dogs with sensitive tums.

However, looking at the ingredients and make up of the dried food, I wouldn't have put it in the catergory of "Good" food. It seems to made up mostly of grain and vegetable derivitives (goodness only knows what vegetable derivitives are 8O ) and meat derivitives (so all the cruddy bits)....It also has preservatives in, which could be BHA and BHT... These have been linked to cancer. It doesn't actually state what the preservatives are and that makes me suspicious.

Personally I wouldn't feed it to mine for the simple reason that it doesn't contain enough protein or oil. I would have to feed huge amounts to keep the weight on mine at those levels.

I always have a few tins of Chappie in my larder for if any of the dog's get an upset tummy. I mix it with boiled rice to re-introduce food after starving for 24 hours and then feed it neat for another 24 hours and it seems to do the trick.

I have also fed it for a longer period of a couple of months when Ugo had giardia and salmonella and was really suffering with a sensitive tum.

Morris has tins of Chappie, he has suffered from a sensitive tum and horrible poos for a very long time and this is the only food we have found that suits him. He was previously fed JWB, then Royal Canine but we know feed him this on our vets recomendation and it's done the trick for us.
