    Well Cassie came to me on Morrisons own brand dry food, and she was pooing about 8 or 9 times a day, CONSTANTLY farting, horrible horrible staffy wind.
    I changed her onto James Wellbeloved Lamb and Rice - and she went down to about 4 poos a day, no farting. The poos changed between normal and slightly soft, like they'd fold over themselves half way.

    Well today is the first day of fully Fish4Dogs for her, and that last poo was HALF the size, and was just 2 big pellets. Excellent consistency. They rivalled Dino's raw poops!

    I'm VERY pleased with it so far, she seems calmer too :)

    I also gave Dino some F4D as I ran out of raw and he wasn't absolutely mental like he was when I gave him JWB.

    Definitely a great food :)

    Great start!

    Today is day 4 of F4D for Louis, although it must be too early to see a difference, his coat is definitely falling better - not so fluffy. Even my neighbour remarked on it yesterday! When the others have finished theirs they'll be changing over too :)

    Day 9 on F4D and Louis' poos are less frequent than before, his coat is noticeably redder and silkier, he doesn't look like he's made of polyester now! His energy is up, but not in a hyper way, just has more bounce about him!

    I can't wait to start the girls on it, they are finishing off the bitch diet first :)

    I've just ordered a trial size of the Sardine variety. :D

    My dog suffers from arthritis, yet she's only 3. I wanted a grain free food as there is an association between grains and arthritis.

    Anyhow, she's on AG Lamb & Rice and although she only has two, admittedly BIG, poos, I felt that her joints needed looking after and to not solely rely on medication.
