View Full Version : Nutro Natural Choice Chicken + Rice - good?

1st March 2007, 09:46 AM
Does any one use this?

I am thinking of changing Molly + Bellas food and have been recommended to use this but wanted to hear your opinions first.

Bella has a very sensitive stomach. They are on Burns chicken + rice at the moment and both like it but Bellas poops are quite soft so I want to change and see if it makes a difference.

I know that JWB, RC etc do seem to be better but I have to also take her sensitive stomach into consideration. Any opinions appreciated :flwr:

jadan must have one of the most delicate stomaches on this site and he thrives on jwb lamb and rice or lamb and veg. i made the mistake of giving him the duck and rice and turkey which is supposed to be for sensitive stomaches but after speaking to the vet found that he is intolerant to ALL poultry. (i knew he was chicken but didnt put 2 and 2 together!!) :flwr:

I give my two James Wellbeloved turkey & rice and I also give them a little fish, peas,boiled organic mince (just a spoonful) just for variety.
I also give them raw carrot sticks as a treat and they love them now.
I'm going to try the Lamb & Rice also. Both girls have no problems poopwise -they go every morning before breakfast and their poops are hard enough to lift :grnyuk:
