    The only one I can find an ingredients list for has cereals as the first ingredient. I wouldn't feed it due to that.

    I used to use the chub rolls (with mixer) for my last two though, my collie did better on those than on any of the other foods available in the supermarket. But god did they stink! Used to heave my guts up doing the dogs meals :eek:

    If I remember rightly it's not great.
    Most wet food has a high percentage of water but is far more natural for them in my opinion than dried:D

    My old dog had the Chubb ones occasionally with mixer but she had the cheapest I could pick up with the weekly shop and mixer biscuits. Lived to a ripe old age too. Now I know different, I couldnt go down that route.
    From what I remember, Chubb was better than Webbox

    Always useful when asking about foods to include ingredient list.

    To me, even if I didn't feed raw it would be a no no.

    Meat too far down the ingredient list and "derivatives" which could mean anything.
    Cereal.. still want to know why you want those for nutritional value.
    Sugars... well that's going to do your dogs teeth a lot of good.
    Vegetable oils and fats.. erm.. Alpha-linolenic acid is normally in plants, dogs require Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) if talking about omega-3.

    And the one which makes me really nervous, Antioxidants.. what type isn't listed, could be the synthetic ones thought to cause cancer.


    Only my opinion though based on the ingredient list.

    From what I remember seeing of this food in the supermarket, the bits of kibble are multi-coloured (am I right)?

    If thats the case then i'd be very suspicious of colourings and additives and so would avoid.
