It arrived today and I'm very excited to give Obi his first taste of it at tea time! He has not been a great eater since he went off his JWB and tripe mix that he came with from the breeder. I switched him to Origen but he wasn't interested, even with Nature Diet mixed in. So fingers crossed that he likes it. I will update later for all you NI watchers!

Will be really interested to see how he gets on as i would really like to give my puppy this,spoke to a lady who stocks Origen and she said all her pups had runny tummies after having it as it is too rich? And were still hungry too.NI seems too good to be true! I have limited freezer space so will shove some in my mums, I know it sounds weird but i would like a poo update if ok as the lady at NI(i spoke to her couple of days ago...really nice)said after the anal glands have emptied..yuk,their poos are about 1/3 the size and dry and light to pick up...sounds great,think my pup is going to be weaned on Origen puppy,so will speak to breeder when they are weaned off mum to see how its going,and will make a decision then...Good luck....Hope Obi loves it!:)

Yes it's true! No more horrid smelly poos! They are barely smelly at all and are small, varying in colour from brown to almost white and if you leave them in the garden they turn to a white chalky, crumbly texture after a day or so.

Let us know Clare how Obi gets on, I hope he likes it. I want to change Maisie to NI sometime soon but its probably not great timing before a holiday to do this. I will wait until afterwards when things have settled down. :)

Holly is on NI and she loves it. Her poos are small, non smelly and very easy to pick up as they are solid (if solid is the right word??) I cant recommend the food enough. I love the thought that all she is eating is wholesome food and no rubbish to bulk it out.

The NI people are so helpful too. i look forward to Obi's update and I am sure he will love it - my cats are now on NI too :smile:

We'll have to start a NI fan club soon! I'm relieved that everyone has been pleased with it or I'd have felt guilty for recommending it.

He didn't like it :(

Nah, only joking...he loved it! I've never seen him lick his bowl clean before. Can't wait to see the pretty poos :D Will let you know. Have a fab weekend everyone.

Clare and a very happy and contented Obi x

So glad - Izzy has done so well on the NI, no more runny ears and eyes and she has lost that doggy smell that was quite potent at times for such a small cute little white cuddly! And of course the poo ....................... I am having to feed her about 4% of her body weight though as she lost weight on the feeding guidelines.

You must be getting loads of money off your food Helen with all those recommendations! It'll be my turn soon :)
Well they only allow one discount per order so I have enough for a while so I've been telling people to give mandys name instead. Suggest that anyone else gives other people not me! Let's share it around.

Thanks everyone. This morning when he got up he went straight to look in his food bowl and then he sat down next to it and waited, amazing! Needless to say he didn't take long to eat his breakfast. On the poo update, I'm not sure I can comment that much on it yet other than there seems to be less of it or is this just my imagination? I think after he's been on it a couple of days I'll know more.

BTW, for those of you that are worried about freezer space. I ordered 10kg and was seriously worried it would take over my freezer space. I have a side-by-side American style fridge freezer which has a tall but narrow freezer. I managed to fit all 10 of the 1kg packs in just two of the drawers which are only approx 32c wide and I'm comfortable that there is enough space left for our food so no need for an extra fridge freezer, for now.

I'm glad I made the decision to go for it. If Obi's enthusiasm for it continues then I'm happy!

I've switched Poppy over to Orijen over the last week, and she has had runny poos for a few days now. Going to see how she goes the next couple of days, but don't think it is working for her - she is still uninterested. As such, i'm going to order NI next week - just need to clear the freezer of ice cream first - happy days!!

i still think switching slowly causes more problems than just changing the food quickly.
