Moving to adult food
Thanks for all your support with my previous queries. Its been a very overwhelming few months and a huge learning curve!
I've been feeding Teddy a home cooked dinner (meat, carbs and some veggies as recommended by the vet) but supplementing this with pedigree puppy for small breeds (he gets pedigree for lunch and when I am unable to cook him his dinner).
Anyway, we ran out of Pedigree puppy a couple of days ago and its not available anywhere for the last 2-3 weeks. I've checked every shop that sells imported dog food in the city without any luck.
None of the store staff know when it will be back on the shelves so I suspect they either stopped importing it or its been held in the port (for what ever reasons!).
All shops only have either pedigree adult food for small breeds, imported adult food for large sporting breeds or the local dog food brands (not an option!).
Local brand dog food is made of industrial waste from corn, wheat and meat processing companies with some undisclosed "minerals".
The best local dog food is made from wheat-by-products, corn-by-products and meat-by products (meat by-products being around 5-10%).
There was even one brand with no meat by-products but had fish flavouring instead!!
Should I give Teddy home cooked food exclusively until he reaches 12 months or is it ok for him to eat pedigree adult food?
the packing for Pedigree adult food for small dogs says its for 12 months and over....
Teddy is a few days over 6 months.
