    The hypoallergenic ones - Duck, Salmon or Turkey and rice are v good budget kibbles.
    Autarky have brought out a Salmon one - that's good value as well.:D

    We use Skinners Field & Trial Salmon for our two - it suits them both and they love it. No problems at all with it - Harvey has a very delicate tum and it's the only thing that doesn't upset him.

    Fed my two this for about 6 months. Very good food but in the end my pup was still hungry on it, it seem to stop satisfiing him so had to change to jwb. But all in all a very good food that I always recommend and hope to switch back to in the future:thumbup:

    Mine was on the Salmon F&T for quite a while and did well initially but she has probs with any kibble after a while and is much better suited to an all wet diet.

    Like Celeste/ROXY, I would always recommend it as a budget kibble:D

    I used to feed skinners but found it made my dogs poo rather loose so i changed to Autarky and they are great on that.

    I think it depends on the dogs, Skinners is the only food which Harvey doesn't have loose poos with. Willow however could eat anything & she would be ok. As with most things, it's finding the feed which suits your dog best.

    Skinners f/t has that affect on mine too.:(
    I also tried Autarky salmon and still using the rest up now and it works for ours very well as an extra complete mixed with another;)

    I feed my black lab on Skinners F&T. The Duck & Rice is the best value/price ratio I can find and he seems to enjoy it. He went off the Salmon & Rice about half way through the first bag, so next up he'll be having the Turkey & Rice.

    I feed him Orijen and Acana on occasion inbetween his regular food and he's always a bit runny with them, I have to mix them in with the Skinners and that seems to work ok.

    I am looking to try my upcoming adopted Greyhound on it. Found it online for 16.99 with free delivery for the Duck and Rice.

    I use F & T Duck & Rice with my older girl and I'll move my puppy over to it once she makes the transition from puppy food to adult. I feed alongside 50% wet food (Wainwrights trays).

    I can't rate this food highly enough, especially if you're on a budget. Mine are currently on F&T Crunchy, but in summer will switch over to F&T Duck and Rice.

    Beautiful coats and no dodgy poos. Thumbs up all round.

    Cool, my price was for 15kg as well. Do not have the luxury of a pet store here that sells decent food. So finding an online outlet selling a bag for 16.99 with free delivery is handy for me. I will just have to keep on top of ordering it in time so that I do not run out and I'm forced to fed poor food between deliveries :D
