I got this for a dog who has had a tendency to scratch. Trips to the vet showed that he was prone to occasional excema. Before feeding my dog i asked the vet’s advice on this product, and he seemed sceptical as far as helping the dog’s occasional itchy patch but agreed it wouldn’t do him any harm ‘so have a go’. I fed my dog and he absolutely loved it. Indeed, he was so enthusiastic that i’d have kept buying it whether it was good for him or not. It’s probably too soon to tell if it’s made any difference to jack’s itch – so far it’s still there, but i’ll post an update if the product seems to work.
My dog doesnt react to this and that is very rare. Actually having a dog which is near allergic to everything i feed him he has tollerated this one fairly well without the scratchy ears and tummy so i would recommend you try this one as we have gone through many that claim to be hypoallergenic and have set my dog off in minutes. A nice large kibble and it doesnt have that nasty aroma of long left fish that fills the kitchen for hours after use. A nic3e big bag which is good value when you have a large dog.
Another top quality food from purina. I do not have a large dog, i have 2 jack russells who literally inhale their food, so i thought that this food being aimed at large dogs would be good as the size of the kibble will be larger and thus harder to eat – it is and it does slow them down so they have to chew now. One of my dogs suffers from skin sensitivity, so i always use purina pro plan as it seems to be a much better quality food that does not irritate the skin. With the added advantage of fish oils, this is good for skin and coat so i think all in all this could be the perfect food for my little dog.
Purina pro plan ‘large robust adult (sensitive skin). Started the old boy off on this last night amd to be expected, it was wolfed down with gusto. This ‘large robust adult’ feed from the purina pro plan stable is- as you would expect- scientifically formulated to provide the correct balance of vitimins, minerals and calories for the dog it is developed for. In this case, the feed is developed for large active dogs who may suffer from allergies and itchy skin. This feed is wheat gluten free and has a high rice content. Containing salmon and fish oils designed to allieviate troublesome skin conditions, this purina feed is expensive at £49 for a 14kg bag but if your dog has such a condition then it will certainly be worth it.
I was hoping that this would be the cure for ruby the great dane’s constant scratching that has me scratching in sympathy. She doesn’t have fleas but she does have short downy hair which is constantly shedding. Unfortunately she wasn’t too keen on the stuff and would turn her nose up at it. I suspect that she’s too used to dinner leftovers and, as we all know, they can be very tasty indeed. Unfortunately this meant i could not test it properly but had to donate it to the dogs trust who were very happy to accept it. On that basis i cannot mark it down because of one spoiled great dane. On a practical note the resealable packaging was useful.
PURINA PRO PLAN Dog Large Adult Robust with Sensitive Skin with OPTIDERMA rich in Salmon Dry Food 14kg : My golden retriever has had allergy problems that used to result in him scratching himself raw since he was a puppy. To cut a long story short (skipping past many trips to the vets for tests) he eventually ended up on trophy premium hypo-allergenic, which is delivered directly from the company itself. It has served us well for many years now, so trying this alternative was a risk. Fortunately, in all aspects the outcome has been a happy one. First and foremost, there has been no scratching. Additionally, every kibble has been thoroughly enjoyed. The kibble is larger than normal but this is not a problem for my dog. At the time of writing, the subscribe & save price is £44. Trophy’s equivalent 14kg bag is £44, so there’s not much to choose between the two, but both get five stars from my dog. Trophy does offer a personal touch with its delivery teams, but if you’re buying from amazon, then this came in an extra bag (not box) safe and undamaged via amazon logistics. It’s great value, top quality dog food that lasts a month (and a bit) and could make your four-legged friend happy in more ways than one.
