Do you have a pets corner near you?? they have started to stock it which is great!! I asked and they said they were able to get it for me and they are now showing it on there website!

You are definatly doing the right thing in enquiring about good quality foods which arent easy to come by over here!!

Toni is right i have heard great things about home cooking and if thats the route you want to go down im sure you will be happy with the results!! For me it just wouldnt work as im not always home and wouldnt want my BF to have to worry about it etc so dry food is best for us!

Double check with lilys kitchen you can give it to puppies and you may have to bide your time until after christmas if you do not have a pets corner near you!!

Ps maizy loves peas and we use them as her treats she loves them that much!!

Albert will only touch chicken , veg and rice and fruit , he turns his nose up flat at tinned crap dog meat and dry biscuits no matter how I water them with a touch of warm water it turns to mush he just looks away what's right and what's wrong ? As I hear different and I told Laura this works .... X
Im not sure if im right in saying this but it may be because they have had a taste of the good stuff ie nice chicken that they now think i dont want that dog food!!! Not sure?????!!!!

The best dog foods from research i have done avaliable to us in the UK are the links i gave Laura and the lilys kitchen looks as good as Fromm in my opinion. At the moment i am lucky as i can get my food from the usa but this is my first choice when i am no longer able to!! They do wet and dry so you can mix it up so your dog doesnt get bored and they are a small company with great ethics.

As to the specialist i have no idea about home cooking etc and have never really looked into it so best to see if others have any other opinions on this!!

I feel maybe that Albert is a different case at the moment as he has been unwell hence why he was put on his diet. As the others have said that if you choose to continue home cooking when he is better and if Laura chooses to do this for Sammy then it is important to check with a nutritionist who specialises in food and nutrition rather than a normal vet to ensure that they are getting the correct nutrients, they will also be able to advise on the supplements that need to be added and the amount and calories etc.

As for dogs on dry food vomitting etc on the recent post Shelly brought up that her 2 had had a little vomitting on Fromm whereas everyone else touch wood has been fine. Digestive issues can be down to a number of things and sometimes it just takes a while to find the right food which suits your dogs lifestyle and also yours

I do not believe the vomiting occurs because of the food, it is yellow bile which it typical of an empty stomach. They tend to only throw up when the tummy is empty, which is a fairly common thing. My concern there was if my feeding times were off F
