    i feed my dogs one tin of wet food a day that isnt their main food its just a daily treat really they have dry food down 24/7 (csj champ). ive had them on lots of different wet food but ive found one i like just wanted to know what you thought. it cost me £3 for 12 cans! it is foreign so cant really understand what it says but the multipack of 12 cans has 2 flavours poulet and beouf (chicken and beef i googled it lol) and on the back of each can it says poulet 14% and beouf 14%, that means 14% meat right? then thats good because the other tins ive had them on such as tescos own and pedigree only have 4% meat and cost twice as much. And something kinda weird is that there is 3 cans of cat food in the with variety pack lol i dont what they are doing there. anyway should i start to give them this food and stop all the other tins? like i said i know its not the best quality but it doesnt really matter its more like a treat than a meal they have their csj champ down 24/7

    What is the name of the food?

    14% meat is pretty awful I'm afraid. Obviously better that pedigree, but what food isn't?

    Why not try something like naturediet? £13.99 for 18 390g trays, and I believe it's 60% meat. Personally I think that's a fantastic price for the quality. If you only use it as a treat you could give each dog say a quarter of a tray each (not sure how many dogs you have or what breed, obviously you'd have to take into account the fact that it's a complete food) and the 18 would last a good while, it can be frozen too and defrosted as needed to save spoilage.

    In all honesty, given the meat content and that it's given as a treat, I'd not bother at all as 14% is pretty crap and since it's not English you'd no idea what the rest is.

    There is alot of good natural wet foods out there.
    Just a thought,for the price of the wet foods,would it not be easier to make cooked chicken,fish and veg etc? If they are having CSJ (good food by the way ;) ) they will be getting a good diet,so its really only as treats.Also some raw bones etc.
