It's quite enlightening isn't it? :lol: I always thought Bracken's poos were ok on puppy food, not super firm, but not sloppy either. THEN, I discovered the wonder of adult food and the perfect poos it produced. Ahhh, happy days :D :D :D

Oh the things dog owners find to talk about. Poo consistency, sick colour, ticks, fleas! Some of you new dog owners dont realise the conversations you can now have! :geek:

Rosie's been on the dry complete James Wellbeloved for months. I'm on my third bag - she's been on Turkey & Rice, and we just finished Lamb & Rice (well you do like to give them a variety :lol: ) Then last week I bought a whopping 15kg's of their Duck & Rice (in fact its an 18Kg bag because I got 3kg's free) and she's producing not-nice-cigar-shaped-easy-to-pick-up's; but the other kind. I'm hoping she'll settle on it because otherwise what on earth am I to do with it all? I didn't expect her to have a problem just by a change of flavour!

I had to put my hand in the sick the other day to collect up some mushroom samples in case the vet needed to ID what type of mushy it was. Then said tupperware box of puke was kept in the fridge for a couple of days, just in case delayed poisoning ensued and the sample was still needed.

Must admit, that was a new low for me.... fishing around in a pile of sick and then refrigerating it! Can that be our secret please???

:lol: :lol: Oh dear the things we do as caring owners!

So far my low points have been

a) when an abcess on my cats neck burst down my shoulder
b) when I had to collect a urine sample from same cat

I've had sick-poo-wee clearing up with the dog but nothing comes close as having stinking pus all down your shoulder :lol: :lol:

Lovely!!!

Oh yes, lots of lovely conversations about dog pooh. I have had a good rummage around in pooh and sick when mine have been poorly, pulled long bits of grass (and other stuff) from the bottom end and goodness knows what else - no chance I'd ever do that for a human, well not an adult one anyway :lol:

I didn't find Minnie-Moo's poohs really changed when she moved to adult food but the puppy Naturediet is pretty similar to the adult anyway so they were nice and firm from the start.

Talking of pooh, I was walking back to the pooh bin earlier on a walk after one of mine had been and I got back to a few other people out walking their dogs. The guy asked if I was just walking back to bin the pooh and when I said yes, he very kindly said he'd take it back for me as they went past to save me doing it. How kind :D

LOL as I read this topic!

On a serious note, at what age can pups go on to adult food? Jess is a lot better on Wainwrights than Beta but still not 100%...so interestin to read about changing to adult food may help...

Cheers - Vix

Vix, my pup is 17 weeks old and he's been changed and its only coz no where local sold the puppy brand.

Some on here don;t even bother with puppy food, think its entirely your choice what age you change them at.
