    LOL

    Was a little disappointed when I first walked in and saw Pro Plan up on the screen, as I knew it was gunna be all about that. And while it has a few things in that I dont agree with, it is their better brands.

    I was right, they touched on what else they produced, but focused on Pro Plan and why that was good etc.

    At the end I did ask my questions :thumbup: The woman by the 3rd one was starting to look a little upset and irrate, and sounded like she was either gunna cry or scream at me :lol: The bloke was quite nice, and agreed with me on bakers etc.

    Couldnt video it... Would have been sued :scared: :lol: Ah well

    Im studying animal care. If I didnt need to go into full time work once this is finished I would go to Uni n study dog nutrition, which I do at home anyway lol

    I wouldnt feed it. For £50 its just not worth it at all IMO, still has cereals, still have EC permitted additives.... I can feed raw for £20 a month... why would I spend £50 on protentially harmful ingredients?

    I like Taste of The Wild, Evo (if you can find it in the UK) and Fish4Dogs :thumbup:

    origen and burns i had also looked into...... them seem to get raving reviews

    Well done for confronting them!

    Funnily enough Solo has been on Pro Plan until now, as mum kept him on it as it what the breeder used (along with Applaws wet). We just ordered our first bag of Taste of the Wild this morning. (She was shocked when I pointed out its only 20% chicken bits).

    Yea for the price of pro plan you'd expect a higher meat content wouldnt you?? :rolleyes:

    Taste of the Wild is a bit hit with a lot of dogs I know :thumbup:

    What makes it even sweeter is that the TOTW is actually cheaper as well! Paid £28 for 6.8kg, rather than £14 for 3kg - so effectively 800g extra free lol.

    The prairie one with Bison in. My mum's a big kid at heart - she got really excited about it. Also ordered some African game braid chews and an oxtail. Yum.

    Initially she was planning on switching him onto Applaws dry, but its so hard to find, always expensive, and then there's usually shipping charges. Finding a decent brand for a good price, and free delivery (because the bag is over the minimum of £19 on zooplus) was a bonus.

    Sounds like you had fun. Teasing reps from crappy food companies is awesome

    but well done.

    Mika's breeder had him on pro plan.
