Sure you can post the name of the food.:)

I don't like it..

Trout, Oatmeal, Toasted Oats, Herring Meal, Oat Flour, Canola Oil, Sweet Potato, Calcium Carbonate, Flax Seed, Lecithin, Grapeseed Oil (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols)

Oats are by far the first ingredient in this food.:shrug:

Innova sells their food in Singapore, according to their website...
http://www.naturapet.com/display.php?d=store-results&country=Singapore&state=&phone=&city=&name=&x=14&y=10

So maybe you could get the California natural herring (it's a bit too grainy too) or the Innova Evo RM (red meat only).
Evo RM (http://www.naturapet.com/display.php?d=product-detail&pxsl=%2F%2Fproduct%5B@id%3D%271404%27%5D)
California Natural Herring and potato (http://www.naturapet.com/display.php?d=product-detail&pxsl=%2F%2Fproduct%5B@id%3D%271326%27%5D)

And Solid Gold has a distributor there too.

Their "Barking at the Moon" would be good to try too.
BATM (http://www.solidgoldhealth.com/products/showproduct.php?id=81&code=120)
(but evo and Barking at the Moon shouldn't be fed to puppies, in case your doggy is still growing...)

hi Prin. :) thanks for your advices..
my lady has pass 1 yr old. so i suppose shes arent a puppy anymore?

but unfortunately the brands (Evo+California natural) u suggested are great, but its kinda far for me to travel over to get it. as i preferred to get small packs instead the bigger packs.. got bad experience getting those big packs.
And, as for BATM..its looks great as well and i have check out one of the store near me..it contains chicken instead of beef+salmon. perhaps i shall wait till the new packaging with the revised ingredients is up in the rack. just in case its still contain the old ingredients :fingerscr

i have 2 brands on mind currently.. should be deciding on either one first..
1: Timberwolf (formula- wilderness elk+salmon, lamb+barley, ocean blue, black forest)
2: Nature's Variety Prairie (formula- lamb+oatmeal)

by the way, i found ZiwiPeak Cuisine - A Natural Balanced Real Meat Diet here in Singapore. I wonder does your side have this? Any comment on it? :confused:

:thumbs up .. thanks!
but :sad: the prices arent very attractive to me.. i wish i earn big bucks.. it cost approxi 30.00 Sin Dollars which is about 22.7255 CAD
2.2 lb bag feeds an average 31lb dog for 7 days.

maybe i will just get a pack and alternate it with those dry food... feeding that everyday, i think i gonna eat grass soon. *faint*

Hard to say about the Ziwi food because we can't tell the order of the ingredients from the website. :o

Timberwolf is good too, if you have access to it.:)

If those are the ingredients (per bag of food), listed in order of weight, then it's all good. no grains and no by-products or filler, everything natural.

is this a dehydrated or freeze-dried diet?
