I just wondered if anyone else has tried the food advertised on the reverse of the latest copy of 'Homer' magazine (Autumn 2013) I currently feed my two on Arden Grange and it is quite expensive, £70 per month. I'd love to save some money but I don't want to compromise their condition, they both look good. Love to hear what everyone else feeds too :D Thanks!

Hi,

We are currently looking into changing the food our greyhound is on but can't decide which food to try. Any recommendations would be great.

Thanks Hayley

I have just transitioned Chancey onto the Dorrell & Hodson RGT food (2 bags on special offer) because it has things like green lipped mussel in it for joints. She scoffs it down without a problem but I do add raw mince or Forthglade cooked meat with it which might make a difference, I don't really know because on Sharon's advice I was adding that to the dried food she brought with her.

 

Chancey's coat has suddenly started shedding but, according to the members of the Greytalk forum, that is to be expected at this time of year. Also, I keep my house really warm in winter & if she was used to being in kennels it may be that she is finding it too warm & losing her coat for that reason. I'm now adding a teaspoon of Cod Liver Oil to one meal a day to help her coat.

** you don't have permission to see this link **

 

Here's the Forthglade link. I have been feeding my whippets on this for years, usually with Denes mixer biscuits. ** you don't have permission to see this link **

My local pet shop sells both so they are easily obtainable for me.

 

My butcher sells rolls of frozen pet mince & that goes down a treat too. wink

"Carol, yes, they often do shed a lot of fur when they first live in a house.  It's the most they'll ever shed, usually.  After that first snowstorm, they seem to just shed normally."

 

Thanks Judy, I'm glad you warned me about the shedding, Chancey's coat came out in handfuls! Now there are just a few "moth eaten" areas but her new coat is darker & her stripes much clearer now. i think she looks gorgeous. Once she has completely shed I'll post a new photo of her.

 

Still trying to get some weight on her but a bout of roundworm hasn't helped that.frown

After two bags of the D & H Retired Greyhound food Chancey still did enormous, usually sloppy poops so I tried taking her off of grain based food and she's now on her second 15kilo. bag of Burns Fish & Brown Rice and the difference is amazing (and much easier to clear up!lol), we still get a soft poop at the end of the day but mornings are usually smaller, solid poops that are easily picked up with a normal size poop bag. I was using a pedal bin liner bag when out on our morning walk through the golf course & praying she wouldn't do one just as we walked up to the Club House!! 

It is double the price of the D & H but I am assuming she is assimilating more goodness from the food if she's not excreting so much, although i had her weighed at the vet today and she hasn't obviously put on much more weight - 27.8kg as against 27.6kg back in February. Still, that is a little above her racing weight as far as i can see.

 

I'll be sticking with the Burns for the forseeable future!
