Springer Spaniel Diet

9th Jan 2015
Anna-Liisa Brown

Hello,

I have an 8 month old Springer Spaniel who started eating Gilpa from 10 weeks old and then went on to eating Wagg dry food with vegetables at 7 months old.

I am finding that he (on opportunity) he eats his poo and I'm wondering whether he's getting the proper nutrients now?

He is from working lines, but we have him as a pet. He tends to want a walk quite often (every 3-4 hours) so at present I'm walking hi 4 times a day. He just doesn't seem to be satisfied!

After Gilpa what is the best food to progress on to at his age? I think the breeder said Omega?? What would you say for this type of breed and something that is not too expensive but good quality all the same.

Thank you.

Personally I am not a fan of the cereal-based dog foods like Gilpa. It is true that many dogs do very well on them and they are cheap to manufacture and buy, but dogs seem to do better on a higher meat (or fish) diet with less cereal. They digest them better and get more out of them. This can also mean that the resultant faeces has less in it and is not so attractive to eat. I would recommend one of the Barking heads diets or Acana. They are more expensive per bag, but you need to feed less at a time to keep the dog satisfied, so they do not work out too bad. You can also/instead try adding a product like Stool Repel-Um to the food. This tastes nice enough, but after it has been through the digestive tract it becomes unpleasant to eat, so can help put your dog off this unfortunate (though harmless) habit.
