This is also from the Dog Food Analysis site, which I mistakenly posted under general discussion. :lpy: A brief essay on good reasons to vary our choice of dog food, ensuring they get not only variety but also a good mix of ingredients and supplements.

Dogs (actually all mammals) are designed to consume a range of different foods, and to obtain differing vitamins and minerals from each. They are not designed to eat “only chicken” or “only lamb” or any other food item for eternity. Changing foods, importantly the contents of those foods, every so often helps to give them the variety their bodies were designed to thrive on.

Thanks for those articles Dorothy. I especially enjoyed the link about rotating foods. I too am a firm believer in providing lots of variety, regardless of whether one is feeding fresh foods or kibble. :cool:

jadan is on two diffenent brands/flavours at the moment and by luck he didnt have any ill effects introducing another brand although i know you are supposed to introduce it over a week. but how does that work anyway? i mean if you are giving variety then it will chop and change. is it because it has the same make up do you think? ie protein etc ratio?
