I've just had a look, but it doesn't say the breakdown of what is actually in it. Which is unusual Confused

If you look at the individual varieties and click on ingredients it gives a full list, Don't know if this will work but here's a link (maybe Laughing ) to one of them:

Ok, so My friend gets meat for husband at the village butcher that this firm use (she is veggie) and says it is of the highest quality. Bromham is also very well know for its veg..so sounds like it could be very good. Very Happy

I certainly will, I've been raw feeding most of my dog owning life (wont tell you how long that is! Laughing ) am currently feeding Nutriment but having itchy issues with Tala so trying to find out the problem. As she has had just about every protein available at some time I can't do an elimination diet so am trying one protein at a time to see if any make a difference. Having a job finding beef that had bone in but not chicken bone, Poppys Picnic fills the bill Very Happy

Looks just like the next best thing to home- prepared raw meals! And not necessarily more expensive, from what I can see. Lucky you! I don't think we have an equivalent here in France.

Yes it does look good doesn't it Nina, I'm surprised France hasn't caught up with the raw feeding revolution Laughing Laughing Laughing

It has, Jacquie Very Happy ! But here we tend to give our dogs home-prepared rather than ready-to-serve raw food, the latter being too expensive. My Lowchen Miss You has been eating raw since last December (when the vet suspected she had Cushing's - she didn't after all, phewww!) but I buy her meat and offal every month or so, cut it into daily portions and freeze it. Same with her vegetable mix. Not very time-consuming as she is a small dog. However, when/if I decide to do the same for Foxie, it would surely be easier to turn to things like "Poppy's Picnic"!

Absolutely Nina, I used to home prepare the raw diets but eventually having seen these very good diets appearing I got lazy Laughing and decided to pay the extra for ease of use, so far been very happy. Thank goodness Miss You didn't have cushings Very Happy

edited to add: of course the French have always been on the ball as far as food is concerned Cool

Well I have to say the quality of this food is first class, I've only got the Beef for obvious reasons but it is excellent, much drier than from most previous suppliers, Tala loves it too. Very Happy The only concern I have is that they don't use polystyrene boxes to pack the food in only poly sheets in a cardboard box so even though it was not a hot day the top packs had started to thaw. Ordered one day and delivered a.m. the next so no problems there. I have to give it 5 stars Very Happy Laughing

Hi everyone - is anyone aware of any research written about the best foods/ingredients to feed Beardies in particular? I'm trying to find a report written by a vet or nutritionist and drawing blanks. Thanks for any help!

Hi again, I'm not aware of anything written about this and I have been in the Breed for over 40 years Shocked I do know that maize is best avoided as it's very heating.
