Pedigree Puppy Pouch
Advantages: easy on the stomach, good for small pups.
Disadvantages: These didn't fill my puppy up, they are quite expensive.
Around seven weeks ago a new member of the family arrived - five week old Staffordshire Bull Terrier Ria. She was only tiny when she arrived home and she had only been eating solids for around a week. We bought Pedigree Puppy Pouchs on the recommendation of a friend who has a puppy that is a few months older than Ria Rah Rah.
You can purchase the pouches in most major supermarkets. A box of eight will cost you about £3.20 and you can buy individual pouches for about 50 pence each.
There are four different flavours within the pack - chicken and rice; lamb and rice; beef and rice; and turkey and rice.
There is 150g in each pouch and they are really easy to open, you just rip the foil, squeeze the meat into your puppy's bowl and crush it with a fork.
The pouches don't smell too bad, as far as dog food goes and our pup seemed to enjoy each flavour.
Pedigree Puppy Pouchs were recommended to us because they aren't too rich. I've been told that other varieties of puppy meat can be harsh on the tum, but Ria didn't seem to have any problem with these.
However, after a few weeks we put our puppy on biscuits instead because these pouches didn't seem to fill her up at all. Also, when you pup is consuming three a day it does start to get expensive, especially when you add on the cost of puppy mats, toys and treats.
Ria is twelve weeks old now and she's been on biscuits since she was about seven weeks. Although she's eating more than she was, when the vet weighed her on Friday we ere told that she's healthy and coming on well.
Overall I'd say that these pouches are great for young puppies and those that don't have massive appetites, but they won't satisfy every pup. Three stars.
Summary: Ideal for some, not for others.
