    Ok, So i know I said we are switching to a RAW diet but things have come up and we cannot afford it this month. My motorcycle has a rear puncture AND something wrong with the ht leads and if its not fixed then I can't get to work :mad: We've researched raw a lot and feel we are ready to start it when we have the money.

    What I wanted to ask was:

    Since a lot of members on here know a lot about what ingredients etc are in pet foods, would there be a similar food that I could put my Charlie on to help his itching. He came to us on the Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and we tried to move him over to a kibble that Ozzy is on but he started itching badly, so we moved him back to purina, the itching is still there but has dyed down a lot. But this seems to be bad quality and overpriced too. Is there one that is similar? I do keep away from giving him treats, there is a pack of treats we have that are hypo allergenic fishy ones.

    We are due to take him to the vets later today to have his microchip details changed and a check up/booster. Maybe I could ask them about his itchy skin?

    I was thinking of putting him on Eden or Arden & Grange. Poor chap, don't want him eating crap yet don't want him itching!:sosp:

    I'm betting when we start the raw diet his skin will become so much better, can't wait!

    What kibble is your other dog on? Your right Pro Plan is pretty poor quality.

    I'd probably go for a fish based kibble such as James Wellbeloved or Wainwrights salmon & potato or Fishmongers as the fish oils may help with the itching. Or go for a high quality kibble and supplement with salmon oil for the coat & skin. Eden is great and very competitively priced against Orijen. There is also Applaws, Taste of the wild & Acana and JWB and wainwrights also do grain free formulas. Arden Grange is better than cheaper kibble but not as good as the others i've mentioned
