    Default Food advice please

    Up till now i had planned to feed Peaches on a well balanced dry food, unfortunetly it appears she doesnt like dry food. well as long as she has a well balanced diet that is fine with me.

    the thing is i would now appreciate advice on what brands would be good, your experiences etc etc.

    thank you in advance.

    I would personally keep her on the food she has been used to, at least for a few weeks whilst she is settling in.

    thats half the problem, because of her circumstances we don't know what she is used to. the fosterer said she didnt like dry and gave me a tin of wet food. obviously i need to buy her more.

    altho by hints i will get chicken flavour

    she was rescued from the farm last thursday.

    What a blessing that you rescued her! I got my rescue (a Yorkie mix, not my Cav onto her new food by using it as treats.

    Have you tried mixing the wet with kibble? Just make sure you mash it up well so she can't pick out the wet food!

    I would also suggest taking the dry food you have already purchased and mixing it well with a canned food, and maybe even a bit of warm water to make a gravy. I like the idea of using a kibble of the dry food for training. That will get her used to the "crunch". I personally use Canidae food for Jato. Good Luck!

    lots of good idea's thank you.

    i havent actually bought her any yet as i was told i would be given a starter pack with her which inc food. i presumed she would have been fed on that and (to be blunt) the fosterer was rude about the food that is given out) now i am totally confused.
