Have been reading about loads of different dog foods today and am now totally confused sad.gif

I like the sound of this one as it looks more moist than kibble, but Eden also do a moist food.

Has anyone tried either of these?

Many thanks.

I've never fed Guru either, but it scores very well on the dog food directory:

I switched to cold pressed foods (which is what this is) about 3+ years ago. At the time, there weren't that many options but they are now more prevelent.

I did it initially to help an older dog manage his bowels better. Seemingly the amount of time ordinary extruded kibble takes to travel through the digestive system is a little unpredictable due to the potential amount of time it can take to absorb moisture. Cold pressed foods start absorbing moisture straight away however.

My (nearly) 3 year old has been raised on this and has excellent gastrointestinal health - if the waste evidence is to be believed lol.gif .

There are various other brands you could try first, somewhat cheaper than this one. I can recommend Markus Muhle, Lupo and Lukullus (especially the latter two). However only Markus Muhle does a small bite version and my little dog will not go back to the big lumps now I've shown her this.

I get mine from Zooplus.

ETA - they all have 4+ scores on the dog food directory.

Have been on the zooplus website and this food looks really good. I couldn't see any mention of what age you can start your dog on it - ours is six months old, so do you think that would be alright?

Many thanks.

I'm sure that will be fine. As I said, my latest was raised on this after the mushy puppy food was phased out after she arrived. x
