Hi Stef, I changed my brand of wet dog food to a slightly cheaper brand – as I discovered that the supermarkets have their own brands of dog food – thought I’d give it a go and see if they like it – and it’s going down a treat, a least all of it gets eaten now, whereas before, on occasion some of it would get left.

(it does look quite yummy).

Anyway, I’m sure it was Nic who said this, (might have been someone else) that gravy was still okay?

Also there is mixed advice on fish flavoured, as some websites say no, but then I heard on here (possibly again by Nic (poor Nic he’s getting all the blame here)), that it’s okay now to use fish flavoured wet food – and I read on a website once that fish flavoured might help the hogs smell it better, and find the food?

None of this concerns me as I have always stuck to Chicken in Jelly dog food regardless of the brand and they do enjoy it), I was just asking as sometimes there can be contradictory advice.
