I wanted to know what you all think of this new food that I am feeding to Daisy. She's been having it for about a month now and I think she's doing quite well on it- her poos seem a lot better and firmer and she's got a lovely shiny coat.

Analysis
Protein 21%
Oils and fats 10%
Fibre 3.5%
Ash 7.2%
Vitamin A 12,000iu/kg
Vitamin D3 1,200iu/kg
Vitamin E (a-tocopherol) 600iu/kg
Copper (cupric sulphate) 12mg/kg

Contains Tocopherol rich extracts of natural origin
Vitamin E and Vitamin C as EC permitted antioxidant

Ingredients
Salmon Protien(min 23%), potato(min21%), sorghum, whole grain barley(min10%), atlantic fish meal, whole linseed(min 4%), sugar beet pulp(min 5%), sunflower oil, dicalcium phosphate, alfalfa(min 1%), natural seeweed(min 0.5%), sodium chloride, potassium chloride, methionine, marigold extract, yucca extract, rosemary extract.

This is for the salmon and potato variety but it also comes in Turkey and rice and also Duck and rice flavours.

What do you all think of this? I've noticed that a few of you on here recommend Canidae. Is that a really good food? I've been looking on the net and it doesn't seem like I can get hold of it here in the uk.
I'd like your advice on this because Daisy has a really sensitive tummy and I just want what is best for my dog!

Hi Heather

Is that Wafcol or Waggs you are feeding by any chance?  If its Wafcol you couldnt give better as its one of the best foods on the market.  Waggs seems ok.  I saw it being sold in PetsatHome.

When Buster started having seizures I did a lot of research on food. Boy, is there a lot to learn! :?  I still have a lot to learn but I am learning more and more every day. It's amazing and gross what is in commercial pet foods.  :roll:
When looking for a premium kibble the first thing I look for is if the food has any "by-products" in it. Pet food is not regulated the same way human grade food is, and things like eyeballs, intestines, feet, beaks, feathers, euthanized cattle, pigs, cats and dogs, etc...are allowed to be in pet foods  (that also includes their collars, metal ID tags and any medications the animal had in his or her system at time of death). These types of pet foods contribute to poor health conditions like obesity, dental problems and skin and coat issues, just to name a few. When you feed your dog premium pet food, holistic foods, raw, or home cooking, your pet's overall health will improve, including food allergies and skin conditions--some experts believe the risk of certain cancers can even decrease with premium food and vitamin supplements.
This list of foods from the 2007 Whole Dog Journal, are holistic and/or free of pesticides, chemicals, by-products, and artificial preservatives, like BHA, BHT, and Ethoxyquin which are linked to cancers. There are quite a lot of foods on this list, and it may take a bit of sampling to find out what works best for each dog. Personally if it
