I feed Saska tinned food and mixer biscuits that are specially made for this in the UK, but I would like to change from the Mixer Biscuits (as I do not think that the biscuits are good for her.) I want to start giving her Vegetables can anybody recommend Vegetables that would be best to give her. Any advice would be appreciated :)

You want to ditch the mixer and feed vegetables instead? or did I read that wrong?

I think if you are going to drop the mixer you should try a dry food in conjunction with the tinned.

As for what vegetables to feed, almost everything is suitable. We get an organic veggie box delievered to our door. I blend up the leftovers and feed it to the dogs in a 'mush' with their meals. Or sometimes I just feed whole veggies if I have anything going spare. Blending it makes it more digestable.

Hi Trickster, yes I want to drop the mixer biscuits, is it ok to mix dry food with Tinned I was always told you had to give one or the other, how much would you recommend of the dry food she has half a can of tinned food. She weighs 29.35 kilos I am trying to get her down to about 25kilos and go from there.

What brand is the new dried food? the amount to feed differs from brand to brand. I think if you are feeding half a can of tinned at each meal you won't need much of the dry -- maybe 75 grams at each feeding. And yes you can mix the two together.

Sounds great to me! I would try the tinned plus 75 grams of JWB at each meal and she how she does.

I use the lamb variety with my crew. They seemed to do better on the lamb then with the turkey.

I think I will try Lamb first if I remember I tried Turkey and she had the trots. Thanks for your advice. :)
