    Agree with Ridgeback. Look at the contents. With Purina the first ingredient (which means greatest amount) is cereal which is a cheap way of bulking out the dog food and dogs don't really need cereal, makes a lot of dogs have sloppy poops. Look at the amount of chicken in Natural Dog Food Co in comparison.

    thankyou for your feedback. i think i shall be sticking with natural dog food. the extra £10 on a bag seems well worth it for the ingredients

    it may well be £10 a bag dearer but you will find that you will need to feed less at each meal than you would with the other brand...so should end up cheaper.
