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.

Did you see my "poultry-free foods" thread? I was looking for a food for Boo a while back and I listed them all there and talked about the pros and cons of each...

Innova sells their food in Singapore, according to their website...
http://www.naturapet.com/display.php...ame=&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
California Natural Herring and potato

And Solid Gold has a distributor there too.

Their "Barking at the Moon" would be good to try too.
BATM
(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

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?

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

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?

The ZiwiPeak manufacturing process is unique.

The gentle air-drying process delivers a high quality ‘dry’ food product, whilst maintaining the nutritional integrity of the natural raw materials.

It is a sterile and safe method under controlled conditions. The dehydration process provides for exactly the right level of moisture removal to make the product shelf-stable, without altering its state or disrupting its nutritional value.
