Hello

Just after some advice if possible, we have a 3 month old westie (Joey) we are still feeding him the same as the breeder 1 tablespoon pedigree and 1 tablespoon burgess dry food, I'm not sure if this is right and if it agrees with him and wondered if anyone had any suggestion on something else before we decide on a change?
I've heard just dry food may irritate his skin but am thinking just wet food may not be pleasant when it comes back out?

Thank you and Much appreciated :)

I think i heard somewhere that westies could be quite sensitive, so feeding a poor quality food may not do him any favours. There are plenty of good quality foods out there which you can try

Have you considered a raw diet? Ive heard of a few westies who have benifitted greatly from having a natural balanced raw diet :)

Westies are prone to skin problems so I would look for a hypoallergenic diet with as few ingredients as possible. The links above are very helpful and will steer you in the direction of a good food within your budget. My only advice is avoid Pedigree, Wagg and especially Bakers!

When you do change do it very gradually or you'll end up with more problems.

Wet food will come out the same as dry. Both are the same, poor quality should be avoided.
