I hope I am posting in the right area (apologies if not)
Mischa (my 9yr old staffy bitch) was diagnosed with mild pancreatitis and was in quite a lot of discomfort, we took her to the Vet and bloods confirmed the pancreatitis.
She was on Holistic Select (Fish) and by our own admission getting far to many pork treats and pigs ears (where I felt the issue was born)
Since then (8weeks ago) - she has been on a single protein diet of Roo n Pumpkin, which she loves, however was very scroungy in between meals.
She was having 500g of roo and 500g of pumpkin per day and certainly improved, minimal number #2s and generally very happy.
The issue we have is the time and cost surrounding this, minimal space and trying to be frugal with money has been difficult, ultimately we want her healthy though.
Her recent check up found she was still tender around the gut, but generally ok.
We asked about dry food alternatives (with a view to keeping her on single protein) and to my shock were given Hills (Vets own)
Now I have read through the ingredients and already can see the shear amount of #2 being left behind and I wonder, what or why this food is being suggested..
I understand the limited fat consumption, 100%, but surly pumping her full of filler isnt the answer either.
I liked Holistic Select for a number of reasons, and also that it didn't have much in the way of filler.
My question is as follows - Is there a quality low fat dry food alternative available? The other suggest was Royal Canine (again not overly keen)
I am not forgetting about doing roo and pumkin everyday again, but would appreciate the space in the freezer also.
Hope to hear back
