    Half the time they’d don’t even read your emails properly anyway as half the time the answer from them doesn’t even make sense :rolleyes:

    The venison tins arrived today. Dated Feb 19 so will get another order in before they sell out !

    We've recently started feeding Fish4Dogs wet (Herring Wet Complete) and the guideline suggests just 3 x 185g tins for a 40kg dog a day. Can this possibly be right? I know its a good quality food but others of similar quality suggest quite a bit more than that.

    Depends on activity, metabolism etc etc.
    Most feeding guides tend to be quite high IMO.
    My 40kg+ borzoi has one 400g tin/tray and maybe a handful of dry and some treats per day, so the F4D guide would probably suit him fine.

    Give it a try. If he needs more, feed more :)

    Beef (60%); Potatoes (3%); Carrots (3%) Organic Apples, Organic Broccoli, Organic Green Beans, Vitamins & Minerals, Flaxseed (Source of Omega 3 & 6)

    Makes a change for their limited edition stuff not to be chicken! Going to Waitrose later so will see if I can get some :) .... although it’s identical to the standard beef tins they do, same ingredients list.

    I thought it might be the same as their other beef recipe, but the colourful tin sold me ;) I'm that shallow lol.

    I noticed Barking Heads seem to be in the process of changing their packaging from tins to pouches! I went on my monthly treat trip to Waitrose the other day and they had the salmon and chicken. Bought two salmon for Heidi to try as she can't eat chicken.

    she's not sampled it yet so I don't know what the texture is like.

    I seen these today too but didn’t get any as mine aren’t a huge fan of Barking Heads, they’ve always been to sloppy so be interested to see what the textures like.

    These do feel like they might be a bit sloppy, although the lamb one in the tin isn't really. Also tins are so easy to recycle, I feel like these pouches almost certainly aren't.

    I think it might have been the trays (if they were out before the tins) that were super sloppy so then I never brought them again.

    The only pouch food we have regularly is the Natures Menu beef & tripe ones. I put them in the recycling and no ones ever told me not too.

    So finally got round to taking photos of the Sainsbury’s new(ish) trays.

    Composition: Lamb 50%, Lamb Bone 10%, Vegetables 33% (includes Potatoes, Carrots, Peas), Minerals, Sunflower Oil, Salmon Oil, Dried Tomato, Dried Kelp, Dried Basil, Chicory.

    Certainly not bad for £1 each (or 6 trays for £5 in a multi box) chicken, lamb and turkey. They also do a salmon one which is senior but we’ve brought those aswell.

    Fish trays are usually softer than meat anyway but Forthglade & Wainwrights lamb trays are quite firm, whereas these ones are softer so easier to mash up.

    For anyone who feeds Forthglade ..... trays on offer at Morrison’s 5 for £5.

    The Sea Bass trays are a huge hit here so have ordered 50 with the mid week shop - they probably won’t have 50 in stock but worth a try lol. Not sure why many places aren’t stocking the Sea Bass. PAH does but local store only ever have a couple in and think they are £1.49 each !

    Edited to add: just tried to check out shopping and won’t let me order 50. Says 20 is max amount on offer. Kept pressing add and allows me to check out 24 (4 not on offer) but no more than than :Banghead

    Well that’s pants ! They only released it in April and no where’s even stocked it properly :( I’ll see how many Morrison’s bring and then try and find some stock somewhere !

    Thanks for the links, will look at competition - not that we ever win anything lol

    Billy and Margot have changed the design on their tins, last year I think but showing same ingredients on their website ?

    Very odd though, when you press buy, it now takes you to pets at home, so they must have stopped selling direct !
