  1. I like Petbarn as their service is great- online and instore. I use their Beef and Roo mince with nourish 27 to make up my own raw food. I breed golden retrievers so need kibble as well so puppies go to their new homes having had a range of foods. I absolutely loved Healthy Everyday Pets food as so low in carbs but unfortunately they have gone into receivership. My next choice is SaviourLife then Leaps and Bounds large breed puppy.
    What I don’t like is that they don’t help breeders as they are all about rescues. There wouldn’t be many rescues if people bred responsibly and trained puppies.

  2. Would love to know your thought on mfm
    Turkey and salmon or duck and salmon?

  3. Hi I feed my fur baby BLACK HAWK and alternate between chicken and lamb. He seems to love it. He is six now and I’ve given him this brand since I first got him at 8 weeks. The first year till he turned he advance puppy food but don’t r then, black hawk.
    I also have a senior dog who is almost 12 y.o. She is his mom and I give her EUKANUBA senior. Is that a good brand for her or is there an alternate brand. I just want the best for her. I’m on a pension so cost is a factor but her health is more important.
    Plz help
    Thank you

      Hi Erika, generally I find senior brands have less meat and more carbs, which I don’t consider beneficial for a senior dog. Personally, if cost is an issue, at the very least I would add some fresh meats or offal to your dog’s diet as well.
