Default Lathems large breed puppy food - England, UK

Hello, i am just about to finish a pack of royal canin for my 9 week old pup.

I was browsing the supermarket today to find this; Lathems large breed puppy food. Now how is this ingredient list looking? its 25 for 12kg, so about $15 dollars if my bad math is correct. I dont have TOO much money to spend on her as my monthly wage isnt amazing after all the other bills!. Although i dont want her to suffer through a fault i could advoid, if needs be i will just buy more Royal Canin.

http://lathamsdogfood.com/index.html

Composition: Turkey Meat Meal (26%), Rice (26%), Oats, Chicken, Barley, Potato Protein, Chicken Fat, Linseed (2.5%), Sugar Beet Pulp (2.5%), Digest, Seaweed (1.25%), Alfalfa (0.5%), Calcium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Chicory (0.1%), Calcium Carbonate, Glucosamine (0.05%), Chondroitin (0.03%), Yucca Schidigera Extract (0.01%).

I think the rice is white which is the only downer that i can see.

With this diet she will be given knox nutrajoint formula.

What do people think?

Thanks Sam

read one review and it said that this is the grocery's own brand - Tesco's , and that it was not cheap.

I think you could do better making your own meals. Rice is not that expensive IF you want to feed it at all (not!) and not white rice especially . There is too much missing and too much filler -- .

I don't think many would think royal canin good either. I don't -

COMPOSITION: maize, dehydrated poultry protein, maize flour, animal fats, dehydrated pork protein, hydrolysed animal proteins, beet pulp, maize gluten, minerals, fish oil, soya oil, yeasts, hydrolysed crustaceans (source of glucosamine), hydrolysed cartilage (source of chondroitin). ADDITIVES (per kg): Nutritional additives: Vitamin A: 16000 IU, Vitamin D3: 1000 IU, E1 (Iron): 50 mg, E2 (Iodine): 5.1 mg, E4 (Copper): 10 mg, E5 (Manganese): 66 mg, E6 (Zinc): 197 mg, E8 (Selenium): 0.09 mg - Preservatives - Antioxidants. ANALYTICAL CONSTITUENTS: Protein: 26% - Fat content: 17% - Crude ash: 6.3% - Crude fibres: 1.2% - Per kg: Omega 3 fatty acids: 7.7 g including EPA/DHA: 4

look at the first ingredient - corn , then corn flour in 3rd and then more corn in 8th. Add it together and the majority ingredient is corn .
