What to feed puppy
I'm a bit confused by the vast amount of foods available and how to work out what is best for our puppy.
He is coming up to 13 weeks and was feeding on Devoted dry food which was a locally sourced food. There was no mention of the meat content % on the packet, so I'm struggling to compare it apart from the nutrients.
We then slowly introduced Wagg Puppy Mix, which has 15% meat content and the nutrients are not far off the more premium food. It also has no added sugar and colours etc.
His stools are fairly soft though at times and a light colour. Sometimes they are hard but sometimes they are softish, not runny but softer. His stools to me are fairly large but then he is already fairly big, so perhaps this is normal.
Without sounding mean, I don't want to feed him food that costs a small fortune....£50 for 15KG seems far too much. I know that you can feed them less, but whenever I read the packets the measurements are the same as the cheap stuff, so not sure how this works?
The Wagg Puppy is cheap but online particularly on Amazon it has really good reviews. I'm just worried we should be feeding him something better. I'm worried as well that it may be making him hyper. He has a burst every morning where he just bites me for no reason, its kind of play fighting but hurts and just worried the food is having an affect....or maybe it is just his 'burst' befoe he conks himself out.
Any feedback appreciated. I want a good value food which is good for the dog and not excessively expensive.
