So definitely the burns that is setting her off. Fine on hills I/d.

Food recommended by the vet is obscure one and not readily available.

We are away with our dog a lot so need to get her onto a
Kibble that we can easily get hold of and/ or get delivered.

Want a really high quality puppy food for a Labrador.

From my previous thread wainwright's grain free and turkey seems a good starting point.

Any thoughts.

I now feed wet but before then used to use millieswolfheart kibble (suitable for puppy and adults) and they have lots of different varieties. I have also used forthglade.

Check out for some ideas of brands, quality and price.

James Wellbeloved or pets at home Wainwright's. Use both but prefer James Wellbeloved

Use to check out the quality ratings as they also have retailers on there that stock the food. I've used Millies Wolfheart in the past but my puppy went off it, she's now on Eden and thriving. I work not too far from the manufacturer so I buy it direct, but I've heard their deliveries are quick.

Another on Millie's! Pup used to be on Eukanuba and could take or leave it but absolutely loves Millie's. Delivery is quick and the customer service team is excellent if you have questions.

Canagan works really well for us.
Dog not happy on Lily’s Kitchen, Arden Grange of Wellbeloved kibble.
It was a massive relief to find something that works. It’s really expensive though!

Mine has Orijen puppy. Can get from amazon and pet shops like Cooke’s.
When the vet asked what food he was on she said it was a good quality one.

Burns is bloody terrible food so your pup has good taste!

Try a cold pressed food such as Guru or Simple. My dogs adore it even my mega fussy one!

Canagan and Millie's are also great foods.

We use burns alert lamb - he's not overly fond of it but eats it if he's hungry, means we don't have an overweight dog!

Millie's is great my dog thrives on it. We go for a fish mix as mine doesn't do well on chicken either.

annie that is a pretty miserable approach to feeding your dog tbh. Food is one of a dog's great pleasures and to deliberately feed him food he doesn't like is really grim.

Burns is massively high in grains and low in the good stuff - it is also very overpriced and better feeds are available more cheaply.

Do your poor dog a favour and try a decent food like Millie's Wolfheart.

My Goldie is on Orijen Red. No chicken in it - I think it’s the chicken in most dog foods that gives him an upset stomach.

Guru or Markus Mühle

Mine was on jameswell, then on to raw food. Now he’s on dried kibble, tails. Get it online. Delivered every mth. Really good price. I’d never go back. It’s totally tailored to your dogs diet

4got to add, mine has the hypo allergenic range, so no grain and stuff. massive German Shepherd and only cost £40 a mth
