Pedigree Dog Food meet Annoyingfoodseekingmissile

A couple o' maybe two weeks ago I posted about Ginger becoming a brand ambassador for Pedigree (here)  and how she was going to try their small breed dog food and report back and how she liked @PedigreeUS  because she was a rescue dog and they have a Facebook Pedigree Adoption Page (here) and....

Is any of that ringing a bell?

I wanted to try Pedigree brand because things weren't going well with the state of  Ginger's food.  She has been eating homemade food for hm, - Not sure but in excess of six years. She's had to change proteins once before and was at that point again.   The current ground lamb, veggies and a starch was not sitting well with her.

That was a big reason I wanted to try Pedigree (another was hard food for her teeth but that's a different post) and for her it was an easy change, here look.

First, I didn't have to 'change her over' to a new dry food since she was not on one. Since her stomach was wonky and she was eating small amounts anyway I added this in small amounts too.

Second, This was the perfect time for Ginger to try something new since I had to make a total change anyway.  Her stomach  saying,  Enough lamb, clearly and in no uncertain terms.

Let me put it this way... There are three forms of matter; solid, liquid, and gas.  In a perfect world you want only one of them coming out the business end of your dog and it hadn't been a perfect world in over a week.

I kid you not.  With in a few days, maybe two? - of  adding Pedigree and changing her protein Ginger was solid and we had come full circle on the Chemistry lesson (That is to say, solid achieved and no more of the other two forms of matter) .   There were cries of relief all around and it's been at least a week since anyone has used the word, drippy.

And third she has eaten every kibble - Hang on.  Sorry. I stopped to giggle.  The word kibble cracks me up. - from the first one I've given her. That is something I wasn't expecting.  I thought maybe she would tolerate it but I didn't expect her to really, really like it. After all her diet was people-food...

And forth - She used to be really hungry all the time and by 3 in the afternoon she was impossible until I fed her dinner.  I used to call it the Witching Hour because that was the hour Ginger started to nag me constantly. Following me everywhere. Scratching on cabinet doors... Now she's downright relaxed.

It's not that she doesn't want to eat or won't if I feed her...  It's just that she doesn't seem to be a relentless food seeking missile.   Pedigree seems to keep her tummy satisfied longer so she's not, I don't know -  An annoying, fuzzy, alarm clock set an hour and a half before meal times.

I mean, look at her.

 The only thing more relaxed then Ginger after she's eaten...

Sweet kibbley dreams, Ginger...




I wrote this review while participating in an Ambassador campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Pedigree and received dog food to facilitate my reviews and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate
