    Hi everyone,
    :)
    I used to prepare food for my dogs myself (chicken, rice, vegetables), but now that I have 4 dogs, its consuming too much of my time.
    In Mauritius (where I live), I can easily find the following:
    Pro Plan, Royal Canin, Pedigree & Alpo.
    Pedigree dog food fits in my budget but I would like to have a feedback about this brand before taking this broad decision. :confused:
    I've had some negative comments about Pedigree but I really want to chat with someone using it.

    Thanks,
    Brian.

    I dont rate Pedigree! dogs dont get fat on it in my opinion ! I used it for a month or two and did not like the results !

    What do you mean by "is too rich"? is that protein? what did you noticed with your pets when you purchased it?
