As classy as it is that you're plugging your own business on a dog rescue forum, you are in Australia and we are in the UK, you are wasting your time here, we are not going to buy from your website and ship halfway around the world.

One thing to note is that their wet foods are not complete foods, but complimentary, so don't have all the nutrients a complete food is required to have.

Why I ask is because a friend of mine bought some for her dog. Her dog was constantly vomiting and had to go to the vet. This may or may not be cause of the vomiting but when she looked the food had been made in Taiwan. She decided then and there to change the dogs food.

What do you suspect might be the problem with the food, are you concerned that the batch she had may have been contaminated in some way? I ask because I've fed Applaws (wet) to all of mine on occasion, even the one with a sensitive tummy, and they've all thoroughly enjoyed it and been fine afterwards.

Bali (the one with the sensitive tum) had diarrhea for three full days recently after I accidentally fed him a handful of Wainwrights instead of his usual complete food, so I think if it was something in all Applaws food he, at least, would not have reacted well when I fed it to him.

We used to feed it to the cats before Pip got diagnosed with IBD and had to change food. I was always under the impression it was one of the "good quality" brands although I've never looked at the dog versions.

The food standards of other countries are not as stringent as ours so if you are based in Australia how can you check the food standards in Taiwan.

Ours aren't that stringent, to be honest. Manufacturers are only required to list what they put in at the point of manufacturer, not what might be put in at source, and they can cover up a whole lot of nasty stuff with words like 'derivatives' and generic terms like 'oils and fats' which could be from all manner of sources.

It's an extremely difficult industry to get reliable information about in terms of ingredients which is why I switched mine to raw, with having two allergic dogs. There was no chicken listed on their last kibble, but it's Linc's only trigger as far as I'm aware, so it was in there.

I have used tinned applaws for a few years with Molly as she has pancreatitis and it is one of the few wet foods which is low enough in fat. It works very well for her and she thoroughly enjoys it smile.gif
