    As I have rather a lot of dogs, 13 altogether, I seem to spend most of my time feeding one end

    and shovelling up the other end.

    They are fed a good quality complete. Lamb rib on a Monday to keep teeth clean.

    At the moment I feed twice a day. Racers and pups have cereal yoghurt and honey for breakfast

    and complete early afternoon. (Pups get mince beef and tuna for tea)

    Retired and rescue get complete divided into two meals.

    Was told if I fed once a day I would get less to clean up. (with the exception of racers and pups who need extra)

    Just to add, poo is firm and normal, just plenty of it.!!!!!

    Would be interested in peoples comments as long as they are constructive. I do my best. !!!!

    Ours get fed twice a day wheat biscuits and milk in the morning and butchers mince with mixer or fresh veggies in the afternoon. Once a week the get either fish or chicken for their afternoon meal. Puppies get an extra meal at supper time usually cerals. We used to feed our on supermarket tinned food and wagg biscuits but been a lot fitter since changing to butchers mince. Tanzy especially used to have a lot of dihorrea she doesn't get it much since we changed their diet.
