    My dear old dad has just been approved to rehome a retired greyhound. Was just wondering if anyone had one and could advise what to look for food wise (not raw). I can easily access Burns, Arden Grange, James Wellbeloved and a premium "own brand" food, as well as nature diet forth glade and Lily's Kitchen.
    Anything I should look out for or exclude?? Thank you

    I care for retired greyhounds for Dumfries & Cumbria greyhound rescue. We have 6 at the mo. As a charity they get a lot of food donated so they get a wide range. Must admit I am not a lover of a dry only diet, my beagles wouldn't have it they like their meat. One thing I would stress is that you purchase a second sofa as your present one will be taken over the the hound. Often think DFS should sponsor us, lol. Good luck Dad, have fun.

    Thank you. So nothing specific which is good. Will probably suggest a nature diet mix

    Oh a Greyhound excellent choice. I don`t have a Grey at the moment but when I did I never found them fussy with food. Mine did fine on Skinners. One thing though is watch the teeth, they can be quite vile, big meaty bones can help. Yep your father may be requiring a bigger sofa while getting used to being pushed out of bed when they decide they need to stretch those long legs of theirs. Oh and mine have been all terrible counter surfers - one minute stretched out on sofa next snaffling your toast the minute your back is turned:D

    Well he's determined it won't be in the bedroom or or the furniture - let's see how that goes
