Re: tinned meat

Chappi or pedigree cans are reasonably priced. James wellbeloved is very good but is a little more expensive than some others, but it is worth looking at.
I have many types in my online store, feel free to take a look.

Re: tinned meat

Have a look at the wet and dry food sticky's here or the WhichDogFood website that David here has set up.

Off the top of my head, a half decent budget kibble - poss Autarky Salmon and wet - prob chappie original or butchers classic but I would only feed those if my back was really against the wall.

I'd never recommend Pedigree

I cant think atm but I'm sure there have been threads here with specific foods recommended for weight gain rather than a combination of wet and dry. Possibly something as simple as increasing the amount of what she feeds atm.

Re: tinned meat

Rocco from Zooplus, the Classic is 100% meat and innards, nothing else. Works out about the same price per gram as the likes of Butchers and Pedigree.

Yes, WW would be slightly cheaper.

WW is £9 for 12 trays (395g) Rocco is £5.99 for 6x400g (classic)
£8.99 for 6x800g
Rocco menu is probably more like WW (meat, carbs and veg)
£5.49 for 6x400g
£8.69 for 6x800g

Re: tinned meat

Feed a decent dry (complete) food and miss out the canned food which is at least 65% water and a high percentage of sugar anyway. There are a few on here that swear by CSJ Hi Lost coming in at £12.50 for a 15kg bag and their dogs appear to be doing well on it.

If you want to put weight on a dog give it some green tripe.

Something like Naturediet or Wainwrights wet trays have no "sugars" - they are just meat, rice and veg, so only naturally occuring "sugars" from the veg. As for the 65% water, that's natural moisture from the meat, etc. A chicken breast, for example, is around 70% water.

Personally I like to feed natural wet foods (only the good quality ones) as I feel they are easier on the digestion that dry, cereal-based foods.

Just my opinion, of course!
