Advantages: Widley Avalible, Not too expensive, Many flavours.
Disadvantages: Made my dog sick!
So a few months ago we needed to get dog food for Lola desperately but couldn't find any shops open (as it was Sunday at about 5 o'clock. Luckily though I noticed one of the corner shops open and dived in. The only dog food they had available was, you've guessed it, pedigree chum! I grabbed a original flavour one and paid about £1 (I think!) and headed home to feed my dog. Here are the results:
I have to say I was pretty surprised at the size for just £1 as it was not extremely thick but pretty tall. It didn't have a lot of space when you opened the lid either which pleased me as some food I have brought does! As it is wet food there was a bit of liquid but not too much and about 90% of the can was real food, another good point!
The Can Itself
As with most Pedigree products the label was the signature bright yellow with the little red ribbon (? can't remember what the little red thing on it was, its like what your kids win at a sports day?) and a picture of a cute black dog, who I must say looked very like my little lab-collie cross! The can is pretty pleasing to the eye and can straight away be recognized as dog food so I was happy!
My Dog's Reaction
Once I had got home and been greeted very excitedly, I opened the can and although I didn't agree, she sniffed at it and liked the smell! I scraped it out into her dog bowl and she set about chewing it up and eating it. At the time she seemed to enjoy it and that was good enough for me I guess. Although, like I say it did stink a bit! There was a generous amount to feed her completely and she looked very content after finishing it!
A Few Hours Later!
However, at about 8 o'clock she got up and stood in the middle of the front room. Me, my other half and my daughter didn't really take much notice of it to be honest as she does things like that sometimes! Fast forward ten minutes and I was kneeling on the laminate trying to wipe up some very runny sick and she was in the garden puking again! At the time we weren't sure if this was the food or not so decided to just stick her back on the normal food we give her.
About a month later though we were in the same position but at my friends house. We ended up having to get some more pedigree chum because we had no other options. A few hours later she puked up again so we haven't brought it again!
You might be wondering why I have still given this 2 stars bearing in mind it made her sick! Well a lot of my other friends feed their dogs pedigree chum and it goes down fine. Also the size is pretty good and not too pricy really. I think it just doesn't suit my Lola to be honest!

Summary: A good product for other dogs but not mine it seems! However the price is good and the size isn't ba
