    I've heard mixed reviews regarding this product and I was just wondering if any of you have experienced trying this kind of dog food. They say it's good while one review has mentioned that there was a problem with the sodium content of it. This company is based on the UK reason why I haven't seen this being sold locally.

    First time to heard of such brand for a dog food. I also think it is not being sold here and so never had tried it.

    Haopee, I've never heard of it either. I looked it up and it appears to be a specialty brand. The Turkey and Vegetable has chondroitin and other supplements added.

    I suspect because it's a UK company is why I haven't seen it in the US.

    Haven't heard of it either. Honestly that name sounds like it belongs to a comic book or manga character : P

    OK I've heard of it, because it's one of the higher selling brands here in the UK. However, I don't rate it. It's massively overpriced for what it is, and you can get a better quality food than that, for at least £10 less than their asking price. It's made by Crown pet foods, who also make Royal Canin, another overpriced dog food. I rate that even lower than JWB.

    I have never heard of it as well. But then I do live in the United States, and from what I gather this is a UK brand. But since apparently its one of those high end UK brands of dog food, odds are I wouldn't have used it anyway. I'll admit that I have to budget my dogs food, the same way I have to budget my own, so they don't get the pricey brand type food.

    I see. No wonder. I totally agree about Royal Canin. The vets, however, offer their recovery food for dogs who are recovering. It smells pretty good, that's for sure ( I mean the Royal Canin recovery food). Even my lethargic dog couldn't resist it.

    Royal Canin does sell a veterinary diet that's even more ludicrously priced than its standard range. One of my two is a HUUUUUUGELY fussy eater, and she wouldn't even eat that stuff. We currently feed Arden Grange food to our two, it's very good quality food and not insanely priced either.

    I had never heard of that before. That's kind of a morbid name for a bag of pet food, I would be a little creeped out to read the ingredients, lol.

    Indeed. Royal Canin is quite expensive. I once bought a can of it as per the vets request. It cost me $4. That was what we were supposed to add in our dog's food who was recovering from something.

    In our country, its price range is along the $10-$20/kilo. I suppose that's cheap but compared to other dog food which only cost a fifth of that price, it's outrageous.
