    We've changed Tribble's diet because she was on rubbish when we got her :) This is what she's on now, is it ok?
    Wainwright's Salmon and Potato with a spoon of cod liver oil topped with either raw chicken or beef mince.
    A couple of times a week I swap the mince for either raw chicken wings or a tin of sardines in sunflower oil.
    Is there anything I should add or change?
    Thanks :D

    Wainrights seem to be an acceptable medium quality food.
    All the rest are just your choice, but shouldn't be a problem :thumbup:

    There just seems to be a lot of fillers in it. Its ok for a cheaper food, but I personally wouldn't feed it to mine. Each to there own though. Obviously its no where near bakers or pedigree, so I wouldn't tell someone not to feed it, but I wouldn't use it. :)

    Its the barley content that worries me with my breed... bloat prone. But I'm an avid raw feeder anyway
