What is the best food for value for my 4 month old german shepherd?
Hello there, I have been trying to research the best food for value for my 4 month old german shepherd. We have had an awful lot of trouble trying to find a diet to suit her and us!
when we first bought her, she was on Arden Grange, which she would eat some days and some not, and for the price, I thought we may be able to find better. So after all the reccomendations, we have tried James Wellbeloved-puppy. she would always eat this, however, after a few weeks she would skip meals and we were encourage by the breeder to add wet food into her diet.
When we did this she ate a lot more dry food too as it was mixed with wet food and she would scoff it down. she was now putting weight on, which was the whole point of adding wet food, but it was also not helping her stomach and would come straight back out again.
After speaking with the breeder we starved her for 24 hours, and then back on the james wellbeloved alone. 1st time she ate straight away, but now as the days go on she is getting back into the habit of not eating a meal or two a day! which i dont like!
yesterday, i added a small amount of steamed carrot mushed up into her food, and she loved it. however, all night and today, she has been having runny toilet again, and this morning has been sick.
I took her to the vets who skipped my question so i wondered if you could help me. From an honest point of view, what do you think would be the best food for my dog? I have two other dogs who have been bought up on bakers complete that costs me £5 a week. I understand that to get a much healthier dog inside, you may need to spend £30 a week, but i cannot afford that.
Lots of people have said to me well you shouldnt have got another dog, but i believe that you can get a good quality food for cheaper than £30 a week that will feed her happily. Please do you have any suggestions, sorry for giving you an essay to read about my situation, im just so confused what to do now!
