On the table at the end of the article, is it suggesting that puppy food (wet) is best. It didn’t give the stats for adult dog food?

But anyway, it doesn’t matter for me, as I’m just gonna stick to what I’ve been feeding them – as they’ve got used to it. However, I will consider puppy food as I might not have to waste as much time mashing it up? but it would cost a little bit more.

Funny, I thought I’d give my mum’s dog a treat today and got her some Roast Dinner Lily’s chicken in a little square tin, as my mum gives her the same dog biscuits every day, and I’d thought she’d love something different – we’ll she didn’t like it at all, and refused to eat her biscuits, I even pretended to eat some (yes I know but it works with her), and she just stepped back if to say ‘you’re welcome’.

Funny when you buy posher brands, and the animals just don’t like it. I think it was because it had too many ingredients in it, things dogs don’t typically eat. It’s funny how packaging can appeal to us, and how we decide, due to the packaging, if it’s going to be delicious or not for the animals.

But I have bought Polly a recipe book, just for treats written by Lilly’s Kitchen, which I think she’ll like a couple of the recipes from it, the cheesy treats.
