    I'm so sorry but your offer obviously wasn't seen by the right people ! I'll talk to the other mods about it and we'll get back to you. Thank you so much for offering.

    We have now acepted @SDPetcare's kind offer to over see the Dog food Indexes, I'm sure she'll prove to be a valuable resource to the forum.

    Hi everyone.
    I've had a quick look to see what foods need doing. If anyone wants a breakdown of a brand now is the time to shout!

    Great that someone will be taking this on again!

    I noticed today in Sainsbury’s that the purple bags of Delicious Collection grain free lamb seem to have been replaced with this...

    https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/gb/groceries/sainsburys-complete-lamb--the-delicious-collection-2kg?langId=44&storeId=10151&krypto=b8oml4/QANRRewJTUNW3d3Amts3dXN0BkWjhTvXOGicoOEHbcXloQ9eofXwJR0NpVWZJlo/aS2gzXCFPv6GvNDNPwEwUy+xXPtBmcitE53iJ+JMnED18v/NmQtHdXzmJ&ddkey=https:gb/groceries/sainsburys-complete-lamb--the-delicious-collection-2kg

    Heidi has been on the original for about a year and it has suited her brilliantly as she can’t have chicken but the new version has poultry oil in it. Admittedly it’s a way down the ingredients but not worth risking. Hmphh, now I’m on the hunt for a fairly inexpensive grain free lamb with no poultry alternative.

    Aghhhhhh so annoying when the change things !

    Poppy can’t have chicken either and loved Lily’s Kitchen Lovely Lamb. It’s between £6-£7 per bag, depending where you buy it from, but only 1kg bag

    There’s also Wainwrights grain free lamb. Contains no poultry. Only available at Pets At Home, but works out a bit cheaper at £8.49 for 1.5 kg bag

    Ohh, fab thank you! Three options already!!

    Wainwrights seems like the obvious choice, though I remember when I used to feed it when she was younger she pooed sooo much! It wasn’t the grain free, so maybe we will be ok.

    Each manufacturer seem to only do one lower fat range. Off the top of my head .....

    Barking Heads Fat Dog Slim is 9%

    Fish4dogs Weight Control is 7%

    Wainwrights Grain free white fish is 8%

    Lily’s kitchen Lovely Lamb is 8%

    Millies Woolfheart tracker is 8.5%

    It’s so easy for little ones to put weight on, mine so in the summer as less running around.

    Tbh though, Oscar never looses weight, even on lower fat food. Only by reducing his intake do we get anywhere.

    Thats what I was thinking of trying a higher meat & low carb food as i don't think low fat food is always best ingredients.
