    Default I need advice for this puppy food i am feeding my puppy please. This is a UK ...

    I usually go for food that is grain free you cant do wrong (most bullies suffer with allergies ,so even if they dont i still prefer grain free)
    From what i read on the forums csj is not overly good food-if that was my choice instead of csj i would use wainwrights grain free range )
    You can soak all the dried food anyway
    Also the more meet % the better -if you look at brands that we can buy in uk like Orjen (grain free) they have a lot of meet percentage and less fillers

    Also before i buy any food i study what they put in it and what some of the stuff mean for instance

    Chicken meal (in CSJ)

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines meal as "the rendered product from mammal tissues, exclusive of any added blood, hair, horn, hide trimmings, manure, stomach and rumen contents."

    Meal is produced through the process of rendering in which ingredients are ground, boiled, spun to remove the fat, and dried. After rendering, only about 10% water remains allowing the end product to consist largely of minerals and protein (about 50 - 65% protein).

    While they can be an excellent source of nutrition and protein, not all meals are created equal.

    When describing meal as an ingredient in dog food, the FDA's website states: "In addition to the processing, it could also contain parts of animals one would not think of as 'meat.'"


    Another one

    Prairie meal starts off as the same product as maize gluten but due to the unique way they are processed they are two very different ingredients in application. The level of oil extracted from both products varies considerably therefore providing two different products; the prairie meal has almost all of the oil extracted to leave a product of 62% protein."

    Pati has given you some great info. I usually tell people if one of the ingredients is corn (maize) put it back on the shelf. I like grain free food for my bullies.
