    Right just following on form another thread in Chat...

    Mavis needs a very low fat food ...at the moment she is on RC low fat tinned this is costing me £180 a month:eek: :eek:....now i love my girl...but.. this cannot go on long term...so i have found chappie to be of low fat...and burns hyperallergenic chicken and rice also to be low fat...
    In my mind i am more going to go towards getting the burns
    Does anyone feed their dogs the Burns hyperallergenic if so what do you think about it ??

    and any other input on types of low fat food would be appreciated.

    H Thanks..
    Pancreatitis which has also caused damage to her liver :( :( I dont mind keeping her on the RC LF until all her enzyme levels hopefully come down...but long term its just a little too expensive..

    I put my dog on Burns and it did"nt agree with him,I had him on Chappie which was great but he suddenly would"nt eat it,for the last 5 weeks I have had him on Wafcol Salmon and Potatoe and he"s doing great on it he also loves it which is a help if you have a look on there site it gives you quite alot of info:)

    I know the difference with Chappie is it is fish based and therefore easier to digest and gentler on the digestion system. Some dogs don't tolerate chicken very well. Haven't tried burns.

    That is what i was feeding her at first but...she would just pick out the Chicken and was not eating very much at all... perhaps i could put some chicken in with the RC LF and try her on that now.. perhaps this would fill her a little more??
    Normally she has a diet of raw meat.. veg etc..
    I have noticed this morning that in between her toes seem a little yeasty not sure if this is the food causing it...will have to bathe them tonight

    Burns is a really good food and i do believe is suitable for dogs with pancreatitis. Its a great food for keeping excess weight off dogs.
