    my two are on the adult.. maybe it is lighter for smaller breeds? though the back of the adult bag states dosage for english and dutch breeds so can't see what major difference there is

    Hi i feed it to mine they are now about 12 weeks now i changed from the pets at home nuggets as i thought excell would be higher in fibre when Toto was pooly i thought the more fibre i can get into them the better i have changed now (the breeder sent me home with Musli but changed that asap as they were selective) but concerned they both do leave a lot of them small dark black sticky poos can never spell it lol, should i change it again? they have hay on supply all time currently waiting for my delivery of timothy hay and oat wheat and barley hay from the hay experts a sthey love that and go mad for it not too bothered with local stuff at mo thinks its too boring for them:lol:

    should i decrease pellets or change fo you think?:confused1:

    I dont give them much veg cause of early probs with Toto i had when he didnt eat for nearly a week was very pooly and got that bloat/ possible GI stasis i only give carrot as treat, odd dandelion leaf (dont have many growing in garden so wont just get ofd the street) i give them say a cup full a day split it as in half cup in morn and other half in eve thats for the two of them and endless supply on Hay, i will try them on new veggies when they bit older not sure their tums are ready? i get conflicting advice on net saying babies should be given endless supply on pellets when are they classed as adults is it 16 weeks as mine are only just 12 weeks now they have lot of sticky black poos today again :( so seem to be forever cleaning them cause of risk of flies, i guess i am feeding them too much but scared i am under feeding them if you get me eek its all so worrying when you dont know if you doing right thing i dont think i have noticed them eat them is this normal or am i just not noticing ? thanks
