Product Recommendation

Am looking to buy dog food brands recommended by the whole dog journal. Can someone please advise how I can source them here in New Delhi/India? I have a 5 month old Rottweiler female puppy and she really thrived on 'Addiction' that we had someone bring in from Singapore.

WDJ had given views on dog food in Feb 2009. According to that issue the brands mentioned are NOT available in India. Down in their list was RC which is in India.

Anil @ DoggiesDude

to add to it, WDJ prefers homemade diets for dogs.

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 07 Jan 2010 2:59 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Thanks Anil. Solid gold is now available in Bombay. Just came to know. I have the 2009 list. Can't see Royal Canin in there.

Anil @ DoggiesDude

you have the online PDF or the hard copy?

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 07 Jan 2010 3:05 pm

Got it from a website. If you need it let me have your email id.

IT has many great articles in Jan 2010 issue. Like adoption etc.

Himanshu Mehta

Thanks much for sharing.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 07 Jan 2010 3:22 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Anil,

I logged in but it seems that the approved dog food list is available only if one pays additionally despite being a subscriber. Do you have this list? Am assuming that the list for 2010 is not out as yet.

Regards,

Himanshu.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 07 Jan 2010 7:06 pm

Anil @ DoggiesDude

yea 2010 list is not yet come

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 07 Jan 2010 7:17 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Can you provide a soft copy of the 2009 list? Someone is traveling to Singapore soon. Have you ever tried ordering online? Home-made food is out of question cause we are vegetarians and can't handle or cook meat.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 07 Jan 2010 7:24 pm

Anil @ DoggiesDude

online import of dog food requires permit from AHD. Its hard to import just few bags. Best bet in India is Royal Canin. Also Sabor has launched its range in India (www.gaubi.com.br) Its also a good food

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 07 Jan 2010 9:39 pm

Anil @ DoggiesDude

oops its guabi.com.br Sold in India by Pfizer Limited, 5, Mumbai, India

I certainly DO NOT recommend Addiction. It does not contain enough meat to sustain a dog. I was just going through the label details

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 07 Jan 2010 9:53 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Thanks. Am making a list for my sister who is going to go to Singapore in another 10 days. Do you have a soft copy of the 2009 list?

By: Himanshu Mehta | 07 Jan 2010 9:55 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Thanks for your advice. Will keep this in mind!

By: Himanshu Mehta | 07 Jan 2010 10:02 pm

Anil @ DoggiesDude

Corn, wheat, soy and other are so-called common allergens.Foods considered to be "common allergens" for dogs are simply the foods most commonly fed. In other words, dogs are not inherently more likely to be allergic to corn, wheat, soy, rice, beef or chicken, etc., but they are more likely to be allergic to common ingredients in foods that they've been fed. Food allergies are also more likely to develop if the dog is fed the same food all the time.
There can be other problems with certain foods, especially grains. Gluten intolerance can cause digestive problem for some dogs. Sources of gluten include wheat (including Kamut and spelt), barley, rye, and triticale; oats are considered questionable (oats are gluten-free but processed oats can be contaminated with gluten), while buckwheat, corn/maize, and rice are gluten-free. Certain grains can contain molds or storage mites that can cause an allergic reaction. I don't believe that grains should ever be a large part of a dog's diet, but I don't consider corn or wheat to be worse than other grains, unless your dog has a specific problem with these foods. Keep in mind that corn gluten meal is a waste product from the human food industry used as a cheap source of low-quality protein and is a hallmark of a poor quality food.

Above is a benchmark to select dog food

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 07 Jan 2010 10:03 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Thank you, thank you!!! We have been feeding her Pro-Pett (375 grams), Quaker Oats Porridge (5 tsps), Eggs (2), Bananas (4), Cottage Cheese (100 grams), Apples, Curd (500 grams), Whole and Multi Grain Rotis (2). We have substituted Pro-Pett with Addiction Salmon/Kangaroo/Lamb/Vegetaria n whenever we have had a supply.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 07 Jan 2010 10:15 pm

Anil @ DoggiesDude

Pro-Pett is a CRAP. Just a filler. Basic things to keep a pet healthy.
1. Give Plain Yogurt EACH AND EVERY DAY. Builds enzymes.
2. Add 2-3 drop of lemon juice in water bowl. Maintains pH level.
3. Omegas (3,6,9) should be ample.

Flaxseed is best when you grind the seeds and mix with the food. I grow flaxseed for my dogs..lol...

Thank you. Found Precept from Texas Farms in Noida. Same company that makes Precise Plus. Found Solid Gold in Mumbai. Let's see :)

By: Himanshu Mehta | 08 Jan 2010 10:51 pm

Himanshu Mehta

What to give for Omegas 3, 6 and 9?

By: Himanshu Mehta | 10 Jan 2010 1:35 am

Anil @ DoggiesDude

Grind flaxseed and add to food or get NutriCoat..

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 10 Jan 2010 1:41 am

Himanshu Mehta

Whis the best food brand in India? What do you think of ANF and Precept line? They are made by the same company that makes Precise Plus. When is the new list by WDG due?

By: Himanshu Mehta | 10 Jan 2010 1:43 am

Anil @ DoggiesDude

Currently i have seen Royal Canin. WDJ list not yet clear but in first quater of 2010

Solid Gold : Yes exceptionally good food a far lot better than Royal Canin and doesn't contain meat by products

By: Digbijoy | 11 Jan 2010 12:53 pm

any idea about the pricing?

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 11 Jan 2010 12:58 pm

Anil @ DoggiesDude

very harsh quote for me..gotta feed 22 dogs..all huge

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 11 Jan 2010 1:53 pm

Digbijoy

Quoted from Himanshu :: I checked on Solid Gold's website and a 15 kg bag is 50 USD (INR 2300). At online stores in Singapore it is 100 SGD (INR 3200). A friend will try and get this or one of the other WDG brands from Singapore. Is there a way to import or order online a few bags every few months?

The Indian distributor has priced it steeply at INR 6700-6900 for the puppy food variety. Am talking to him to see if something can be done. Our girl is eating through 375 grams of Pro-Pett daily. While one will have to feed less of one of the WDG brands, one would still end up being taken to the dry cleaners if one were to pay the prices being demanded in India.

Regards,
Himanshu.

@Himanshu : Bro you can order online at cheap prices try the solid gold website or amazon.com

By: Digbijoy | 11 Jan 2010 4:23 pm

Kailash Relan

Anil Ji if you order in wholesale hes gonna give a good discount as that guy ws giving me 10% disc if i got 2 bags..but if u get more so more discount

By: Kailash Relan | 11 Jan 2010 6:55 pm

Himanshu Mehta

That may be so but just look at the difference in prices. Even a fifteen percent discount will take the cost down by merely 1000 rupees.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 11 Jan 2010 7:14 pm

Digbijoy

Yes , If you order more then more discount gonna happen.

By: Digbijoy | 11 Jan 2010 7:16 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Yes, we must remember that the shelf life of an unopened bag is 1 year and that of an open bag about 3 months.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 11 Jan 2010 7:20 pm

Digbijoy

Yes , If you order more then more discount gonna happen.

Addiction has offered to supply out of their Singapore warehouse but need me to take care of customs and courier charges. Courier charges are not an issue but i have no clue about customs. I wonder how online stores do this. Addiction is also looking for distributors.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 12 Jan 2010 4:43 pm

Digbijoy

Custom charges vary as per sending country and recieveing country. Online stores work on same basis. Shipping cost+ Tax (Custom) which should be around 7.5% if sent from singapore.

By: Digbijoy | 12 Jan 2010 6:19 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Shipping cost + tax = 7.5% of the package cost? That is it? This really seems to be very cost effective. But do i have to go and clear it at the customs or will it land at home?

By: Himanshu Mehta | 12 Jan 2010 7:11 pm

Anil @ DoggiesDude

for dog food you need permit to clear the customs. You gotta contact AHD dept. Main offices are in Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai as per my knowledge

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 12 Jan 2010 7:47 pm

Digbijoy

No need to clear at customs , it will land at your home, clearing all procedures.

By: Digbijoy | 12 Jan 2010 7:47 pm

Digbijoy

@Anil : No he don't need permits - I did these a lot of times for "Artemis Dog Food" shipped from U.S.A , the seller took all the headaches , since these are Big Brands no need of manual clearance for quality as its shown already approved on pack by IHC. Customs need to be cleared only from India for CKD/Bulk Importing more than 1800kgs.

By: Digbijoy | 12 Jan 2010 7:52 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Wow guys, thanks so much. Why don't we all do this ourselves then? By the way, i corresponded with Perfect Health Diets, another WDG approved brand, in the US and they said that shipping a 50 pounds package would cost USD 250. Shipping in from Singapore ought to be cheaper even if the food itself is a little costlier. Digbijoy, how much did you order and what were the damages? Can you give me a a contact so that they know what am talking about when i email them?

By: Himanshu Mehta | 12 Jan 2010 8:13 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Hi Digbijoy, could you please let me know which website to use to order online, how much you ordered, how much you paid, what procedure to follow? I have also sent you a message. Shall be grateful. Himanshu.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 14 Jan 2010 11:20 pm

By the way, anyone heard of precept plus range?

By: Himanshu Mehta | 14 Jan 2010 11:27 pm

Thanks. How much did you pay for shipping? Got any discounts? Cheaper option compared to the Solid Gold option in Mumbai?

By: Himanshu Mehta | 15 Jan 2010 10:19 pm

is it home delivery?

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 15 Jan 2010 10:25 pm

Hi Anil,

I posted the precept plus formula for you above.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 15 Jan 2010 10:29 pm

Digbijoy

Yes , they have a fixed charge of shipping varies according to where you reside in India also. And yes a lot of cheaper than Solid Gold.
@Anil - yep it is home delivery.

By: Digbijoy | 15 Jan 2010 11:01 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Hi Digbijoy,
Just heard from Nima Chong at Artemis. She/He says that they do not ship directly or internationally to end consumers and that you might have ordered from a international distributor/retailer.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 15 Jan 2010 11:13 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Waiting for further advice.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 15 Jan 2010 11:26 pm

They do - hit me up with your email id for the phone number.

Himanshu Mehta

himanshubhaimehta@gmail.com. You still got to let me know how much you paid for the food and the shipping :) Was checking out some online sites in Singapore last night and it seems as if postage would cost more than dog food itself!

By: Himanshu Mehta | 16 Jan 2010 8:43 am

Himanshu Mehta

Digbijoy, your store is not online yet.

PRADEEP KOUSHIK

I only need to ask after going thru 71 of ur exchanges, do u eat imported food,balanced diet,percent analysis of protein and fiber?If not, all of us should be terribly malnutritioned.But most obese society is USA,the kingpin of balanced diet concept.And Himamshu wants WDJ to certify what ur dogs should eat.How about confirming we eating roti or dal from somebody with white skin dear?

By: PRADEEP KOUSHIK | 31 Mar 2010 12:22 pm

PRADEEP KOUSHIK

Hi,
Himamshu,I had a look at ur rott bitch pic.Chibbers r great in rotts.So no genetic issues.Yet the bitch front pastrens r not desirable shape.Why,the bitch does not know she is getting food that is well researched and debated for?

By: PRADEEP KOUSHIK | 31 Mar 2010 12:28 pm

Read Pasterns,familiar?Regret typing error.Or u really want to know what they r?

Hi Pradeep,
The discussion here is not a comparison between RAW food and Dry food. The discussion is on which is the best dog food brand available currently in India. There are people who cannot fed thier dog RAW feed due to various reasons , main one being that the owner is a Vegetarian. So they are left with no other option other than feed to thier dog branded food. They may as well feed it the best one in market if they can afford it. Whats wrong in that? Why are u so offended?

By: karthik | 31 Mar 2010 6:44 pm

Anil @ DoggiesDude

Same reason why people look for imported champ bloodline for better quality. If better food is there, why one should not opt if it can be procured.
And IMHO the comparison of the puppy smells bad in taste.

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 31 Mar 2010 9:13 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Hi Pradeep,

WDG too recommends home made diets. See Anil's (his advice helped us nip a health problem in the bud!) response almost at the beginning of this thread. It is an not an option for me as we are vegetarians ourselves. Am not a breeder, so the economics of feeding my dog don't really bother me. There are no profit and loss accounts to be factored in. Am no nutritionist either and hence I'd rather consult an authority like WDG, especially so if I can manage to source and feed the recommended brands. I have found Solid Gold in India and it is only slightly more expensive than Royal Canin. In return, i hope to have a healthy companion and fewer visits to the vet. Most of the brands recommended by WDG are keen to enter the Indian market. I have nothing against a home grown brand like your own but would rather see it endorsed by an authority like WDG. I had asked for an ingredient list of your brand so that I could send it to Kat Ferrera at petvacations. She is a pet nutritionist and one I trust. Vinay Parade, who retails Solid Gold, consulted her before he brought the brand to India. It might do your brand some good to be endorsed in such a manner. I merely suggest of course.

Regards,

Himanshu.

Hameed Sulaiman

hi

I Just found out that canidae dog food is coming to india by the end of may. I spoke to the proprietor directly and he lives near my place. He said the prices are considerably lesser than royal canin and the final price shall be fixed once the container land and all variable costs are met. I have been feeding Royal canin which makes my dogs vomit 3 times a week and I am supplementing him with calcium, skin & coat conditioners, minerals and vitamins as suggested by vet because he had deficiency in all of it. And Canidae is five star and solid gold is only 4 according to dogfoodanalysis. and he said ALS is coming too, it contains 3 main meat meal content and one fish meal too.

Regards,
Hameed.

Hi guys i just saw its in WDJ and royal canin was kicked out of the list feb 2010. here it is ( http://www.epettalk.com/forums /content.php?28-2010-Whole-Dog -%20Journal-s-Recommended-DRY- Food-List )

Any one has ever faced an allergic reaction to Royal Canin? I ran out of Solid Gold and Addiction couple of days back and this morning noticed an allergic reaction on Chippy (swelling above right eye - the vet diagnosed it as an allergic reaction). She has been feeding on Royal Canin for the last couple days. Threw out the pack this evening.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 05 Apr 2010 10:51 pm

Hi Hameed,

It might be more useful to consult the web version of 'the whole dog journal' for the list in question rather than rely on sundry web sources.

Himanshu.

karthik

Hi Himanshu,
How is the supply/availability of Solid gold. Iam worried that if I start my puppy on one of these imported food and I dont get it after few months it may be difficult to switch it back to Royal canin. Would appreciate your thoughts on this

By: karthik | 05 Apr 2010 11:07 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Hi Karthik,

This the first time that we have run out of supplies. Basically cause my sister's friend hasn't been on one of his Singapore trips since early March and cause the Solid Gold people are now trying to put in place a proper supply chain for the first time ever. So far it was pretty ad-hoc. Am told things should have worked out in about 15 days time.

By the way, your pup will refuse everything else that is not super premium once you start him on one of these brands ;-)

You might want to speak to Anil for advice. Home food is the best according to 'The Whole Dog Journal'. Then comes wet/canned food and then dry dog food. My problem is that being a vegetarian family we do not want to handle meat. Would feed canned/wet food though if easily available. Brother-in-law at Pune brought in supplies of 'Butch' but it doesn't seem to have nice reviews on the net. Seems to be more like very rich fast food for dogs.

Regards,

Himanshu.

Regards,

Himanshu.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 05 Apr 2010 11:16 pm

karthik

Hi Himanshu,
I am worried about the same thing (Puppy refusing everything else once it gets used to these super premium food). I was speaking to my breeder (Litter is expected in May). She warned me about getting my pup used to super premium food. Her fear is the availability of it in the long run. She was recommending Royal canin for the same reason.
We are also vegetarians. So I also have reservations about feeding my puppy home non veg food. I have never bought Non veg food, so Iam not sure how to select the food. I would not be able to eat it so I willl not be able to check the quality of the meat.
Anil Bhai,
Yesterday in supermarket I saw some branded packed chicken (Real good Chicken). Can I just feed my pup something like this? or for people like me and Himanshu (Veggies) would it be better to stick to dry food?

By: karthik | 06 Apr 2010 8:08 am

Himanshu Mehta

Hi Karthik,

1. I do not think that Solid Gold or one of these WDG brands are super premium. About the same price as Royal Canin. Please send me an email and I will send you the WDG list as well as their criteria for listing the brands. By the way, someone offered me Royal Canin at 20% discount to MRP. Also read somewhere that these mass brands offer as much as 40% incentives downstream. You could perhaps store as much as 9 months supplies with you.

2. Supply of these WDG brands is also a factor of demand. If more of us demand these brands then may be someone will see commercial viability in importing these. The brands themselves are interested in entering India. In any case, I would rather supplement the WDG brands with these mass brands in case i run out of supplies than feed the mass brands continuously.

3. There are people in Delhi who deliver home cooked food for dogs. That could be an option for you if you have services like these at your place. The Delhi guys are yet to expand to my location.

Cheers,

Himanshu.

PRADEEP KOUSHIK

Hi,
Well Anil, Some responses r not posted here and r sent to my private mail Id.,whereas my answers for the same r on dogspot here.But otherwise also, a dog should be commented for its looks,good and bad.Thanks to critics, people like us r cured of kennel blindness.It was also necessory to bring out the pomp of branded foods in picture that anyway was provided for on dogspot.
Hi Kartik,
The topic is,food aporval by WDJ and that is what is what I am objecting.Also the whole jargon of food discussion gives an impression to a a newbie,as if feeding ur dog is very complex and scary subject.Pl. check,
on the same blog somebody has asked if he could feed his dog meat..I am telling them ,most of this is Mombo jambo,ur dogs can do great without it and all is not well with dogs fed with hi-tech feeds.
U mensioned something about RAW food.I do not think I hv touched on that at all,even though raw clean meaty bones can be the best food money can buy.But that is with its own difficulties in procurring and handling.If u r saying other than branded dry food all other homemade foods as "RAW",then it is ur privilage to be Raw.All great kennels across the world feed their dogs their own food,and they canvassing for one bradned food or other is only sponsorship.

By: PRADEEP KOUSHIK | 08 Apr 2010 1:32 pm

karthik

Pradeep,
Iam not saying that Raw/Home made food is bad. On the contrary I think home made food is great. Only reason Iam looking at dog food is because Iam a Vegetarian and I beleive that Dog should be fed meet to complete its food. It would be difficult for me to go a Butcher shop , select meat , qualify it and then feed it. So I would prefer feeding dog food. But If some one is ready to offer healthy dog food in Bangalore on daily basis , Iam willing to consider it.
Obviously you are more experienced than us, so looking forward for your valuble suggestions.
Cheers,
Karthik

PRADEEP KOUSHIK

Hi again,
well Kartik,
I think that is correct perspective one can hv.Being aware that x brand or y brand readymade food is at the best a compromise.Whether it is approved by X not,its main value to us is convenience.dry foods hv been made to dispose off leftovers in meat eating countries.They never asked the dogs,but u can and must ask ur
dog what it needs,likes.Once this is clear in our minds,u will find ways and means to feed ur dog the meat,whether u r veggie or not.If not everyday, atleast twice a week.

By: PRADEEP KOUSHIK | 08 Apr 2010 2:10 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Hi Pradeep,

Feel free to comment on the looks or the health. One is always learning. We got her as a 'pet' (anything less than a disability doesn't really bother us - our over 13 year old labrador was at home hooked up to saline drips, catheters etc for a full 15 days before we gave in to the vet's demand that we let him go) and not to show her around. Regardless of this, we did show her at the Delhi show in January and the two Chandigarh shows in February. One of these was a Rottweiler speciality show. She did just fine at the shows and we might have top of the heap if it hadn't been for the fact that we are inexperienced handlers. We did quiz the judge about her health and he said nothing about any deviations from the form. As for breeders, once again I feel their main motive is profit and perhaps that is why they do not feed food that may work out to be relatively expensive. One breeder told me that there is no demand, even amongst breeders, for food costing above INR 150 per kilogram and the dogs are fed relatively expensive food only around the time the shows are held and when they are pregnant or lactating. By the way, Breeders offered to buy us off (for an amount that I will not disclose here - anil knows though) at the Chandigarh show. Strange that they should want to buy and separate a family pet from it's owners. Profit motive kicking in again perhaps.

All said and done though, I fully agree with you, Anil and WDG that the best is raw or home cooked food. I will in all likelihood incorporate home cooked food into her diet once Scooby Corp (they deliver freshly made dog food tiffins twice a day) expands to include my area.

Karthik: Do have a look at the websites of the brands recommended by WDG. Some of them also have formulas that are known as 'Raw Dehydrated' in addition to 'Canned'. Supposedly much better than dry food (kibble). Also look at the Honest Kitchen website. The Honest Kitchen has been the only pet food manufacturer in the United States to have proven to the Federal FDA that every ingredient it uses in its products are suitable for human consumption, and the products are manufactured in a human food facility. The cat and dog diets are made right along side bakery mixes, and other products for human consumption.

Regards,

Himanshu.

Hi Himanshu,

Honest kitchen looks very good. Do they serve in India?

Can you pass me the phone number of Scooby Corp.I will check with them if they serve in Bangalore.Did u check the Sccoby corp food with Kat Ferrera?
Cheers,
Karthik

Himanshu Mehta

The URL for Honest Kitchen is www.thehonestkitchen.com. Doubt if they serve India even though they are available in Singapore. I have also been after Vinay's life to add brands other than Solid Gold. Chippy loves Addiction :) Another brand on the WDG list is Precise Plus. Am told it is being retailed in India under the brand name of Precept Plus. It is also endorsed by the Great Dane Lady. Unfortunately, it seems to have something called Menadione sodium bisulpfite complex and I have read only negative things about this ingredient. In any case, our Diva doesn't like it. I believe you can get Precept Plus in Bangalore. Rajesh Katyal, who I believe is a Great Dane breeder of no mean repute, retails it in Noida.

Scooby Corps. number is +91-9212571030. The contact person is 'Himanshu'. Did not check them out with Kat as I do not have access to their food yet. Will cross the bridge when I come to it :).

Hi everyone,
Was just going through the thread and found it quite informative. I did call up Vinay Parade who distributes Solid Gold in India and he was out of stock and asked me to wait another two months. Can anyone tell me where i can get any of the other premium brand foods in India? I'm feeding my puppy Eukanuba small breed puppy right now and want to switch since the main ingredient is chicken by products. Royal canin is available here too but i'd like to look for better options.

Regards,
Prejith Sampath.

Himanshu Mehta

Hi Premjith,

Vinay's consignment is stuck due to some procedural hassles. You could check with Gowri Shankar at 09894234708. Where are you based? You can try Scooby Corps for home made food if in delhi. Also check with Anil for advise as he feeds his dogs home made food. Nearly all companies listed by the Whole Dog Journal are looking to enter India so we might be in for some good times going forward.

Cheers,

Himanshu.

Solid Gold Health Products For Pets, Inc., a pioneer of natural, holistic animal nutrition since 1974, is looking for an agent/distributor in India. Please get in touch with Rani at arul71@starhub.net.sg. Solid Gold is rated extremely highly by the Whole Dog Journal.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 15 Jul 2010 1:05 pm

Prejith Sampath

Thanx Himanshu. I'm from Kerala and i've fed her Eukanuba small breed, Royal Canin Mini Puppy 33 and presently i'm feeding her Mera Dog High premium Junior 1. Does Mr. Gowri Shankar deal with Solid Gold and what about Rani? Have they started distribution in India?

By: Prejith Sampath | 19 Jul 2010 2:03 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Gowri Shankar told me that he will be bringing in Canidae and perhaps Orijen later on. It's been months though since he told me this. Rani is the Singapore distributor for Solid Gold and is keen to have Solid Gold present here in India. Vinay's investor went back on his words or we would have had Solid Gold in India by now, even if without their large breed puppy formula cause it contains bison - a protected species in India. Quite a few other companies I spoke to are working on distribution plans for India. Vinay told me that now someone down south could be importing Solid Gold in a while.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 19 Jul 2010 5:33 pm

Prejith Sampath

That is good news but the problem is just about one lot of these high premium foods come in and then we dont get to see the same brand for a long time. Somebody with a strong financial background needs to take this up to keep it going. Thanx anyways, I'll be on the lookout and do scrap me if something interesting turns up.

By: Prejith Sampath | 19 Jul 2010 8:31 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Gowri is a strange sort of a distributor if he is acting this way. Not to worry. There will be Gowri and a few others soon to choose from...hopefully! You can try www.shopyourworld.com and Rani, the Solid Gold distributor in Singapore. I ordered some supplements from her and I got a better price thab what i would have got from Shopyourworld. You can try and order food too from Rani but courier costs will break the bank -same issue with shopyourworld too! It may be worth wyour while though to explore cause your puppy is likely to eat a lot less than mine :)

Hey himanshu, i said in a funny way, he did not show attitude to me, i know him well he was my senior, if he sees this he is gonna kill me now. it was my fault to ask stupid questions to him taking advantage of his friendliness. basically he is a good guy...

By: Hameed Sulaiman | 21 Jul 2010 10:07 pm

Gowri Shankar, called me and told don't worry i am not mad, oh my god who told him this to him so soon. any ways i feel bad writing that way, i didn't mean to spoil his name though

I was chatting with him a while back. Anyway, think before you put thoughts at the end of your fingertips if you do not want others to know ;-)

By: Himanshu Mehta | 21 Jul 2010 10:40 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Hi all,

I just ordered some Solid Gold supplements from Rani, Solid Gold' distributor in Singapore for South-East Asia. It was quite cost effective as compared to shopyourworld.com. Food costs compare favourably with shopyourworld.com but can be a lot more cost effective if we can pool in a few orders. She will give us discounts and get bargain prices from the courier company. She will accept money through paypal from each individual party and will deliver to individual addresses. She wanted me to coordinate this but I do not want to accept money from third parties as I have no business experience and very little time.

If we are talking to her for orders then I think we should copy emails to each other so that we know how many orders she has from India.

Regards,

Himanshu.

i am deepesh and live in chennai.. i would like to know if any one is selling holistic food in chennai or if is ready to send it to chennai. holistic food like precept plus, solid gold, blue buffalo, canide etc. i m ready to make home made food but the only problem is i m a vegan and my parents are opposing it. i want to give the best to my little friend. and also planning to buy a royyt or french mastiff. so please suggest a proper guidance..

By: deepesh | 22 Oct 2010 10:01 am

Himanshu Mehta

Deepesh,

Precept Plus is available in India and you should be able to find it in Chennai. It is sold abroad as Precise and there is a slight variation in formula. You can write to the company. Search for 'Precise Dog Food' or something similar. None of the other brands are yet available in India. You can import using shopyourworld.com. Am using it and find it cost effective. You can write to Gowri and Rani whose contact details are mentioned somewhere above in this thread. Gowri is yet to get shipment but Rani will definitely send you food bags as samples. i have imported from her once.

By: deepesh | 26 Jan 2011 12:08 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Yes, they are solid gold products. Your dog is still young. Feed him/her well. Feeding precept plus is your choice. Am not comfortable with menadione and wheat in it. I either get food from abroad or order from shopyourworld.com.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 27 Jan 2011 12:30 pm

@himanshu - http://www.thepoochco.com/pooc h_product.html
can i get from the above mentioned link..
and precept plus is recomended by greatdane lady in her website.

By: deepesh | 27 Jan 2011 4:53 pm

Himanshu Mehta

The company the weblink posted by you belongs to a Vinay Parade. I don't think he is in business any more. Feel free to write to him at vinay.parade@gmail.com. His mobile is mentioned on the website. I found him to be a good guy. The greatdane lady recommends precise to be accurate. The website says that precise is retailed under the precept brand name in asia. I have noticed though that the ingredients are a little different if you read closely enough. In any case, I wasn't convinced. I'd like to feed only brands recommended by 'The Whole Dog Journal'. Precise is on the list by the way. I have realised dog nutrition is a topic that gets people up in arms discussing the merits and demerits of various brands. Feeding WDG brands is a personal choice since we have access to them. They are cheaper compared to even brands like Royal Canin and Eukanuba when brought in by friends and only slightly more expensive when ordered through shopyourworld. Am not plugging shopyourworld but i did not find a site yet that had dog food at a more reasonable price. My first choice is to get friends to bring in supplies. If ordering through shopyourworld, order multiple packages with each package below 5 kilograms, use a bonafide address abroad to gift the package to yourself and use a HDFC bank or ICICI credit card. There are people on this site who can advise you better than i can. Told you everything I know.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 27 Jan 2011 9:15 pm

Also, hunt for brands that come in with free domestic shipping.

and also request for information on whom i can buy from..

By: deepesh | 29 Jan 2011 4:35 pm

Himanshu Mehta

Deepesh,

What I have read is that the most common of proteins like eggs, lamb, chicken etc are a cause of allergy, especially if fed over a long period of time. We try and rotate proteins and brands to the extent possible. I have already given you information on how I source my supplies. If more of us asked for better dog food and did not buy the crap dished out by importers, vets and pet shops we'd perhaps force them to get better brands.

By: Himanshu Mehta | 30 Jan 2011 5:29 pm

deepesh

actually over what period pf time should we rotate brands..

By: deepesh | 30 Jan 2011 9:02 pm

Please read on this website and the net. Speak to Kat Ferrera at petvacations.in. We do it every 2-3 months.

Hi Everyone..

Vinaay A. Parade here. We were shot down the last time on our plans to get Solid Gold to India. This time around we try once again.. Need your wishes and encouragement.

In return, I promise much lower prices and more inventory than earlier. This time around we are working in collaboration with the Singapore Distributors(Rani). Will know for sure in two weeks time.

Shout outs to Mr Anil and Himanshu Mehta... Thanks for all your help and guidance. Will come calling soon.

I was searching for some answers on the net and was guided to this post. We had taken in a male Spitz last October that seemed to be lost/abandoned, which the vet estimated to be not more than 3 years old. It had some physical disabilities in the joints like in the hips and paws. We had started it on a home diet (us being vegetarians) of chapatti mixed with paneer, milk, mashed channa dal, curd and a boiled egg a day. Soon it started developing constipation and on it having a gross hematuria event our vet advised a blood test and starting it on Isabgol. The blood test showed gastroparesis, increasing serum creatinine and total bilurubin, fall in the level of WBC, sodium, calcium, phospherous,etc. After a course of antibiotic - Doxil together with Ciza MPS, we decided that home food was not enough or may be causing the constipation. The packed dry kibble packs all used artificial chemicals of additives and preservatives that are very harmful in the long run. Only Venky's Regale meal used natural antioxidants as preservatives: mixed tocopherols (source of Vitamin E), Rosemary extract and citric acid. As mentioned on the pack, this chicken as the main source of protein product fortified with glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate is imported from Brazil - Total Alimentos S/A, Animal and Pet Feed manufacturer, and packed and marketed by Venky's in 400g and 4kg packs. (I wonder what happened to Venky's plan in 2006 of setting up a Rs15 crore extrusion plant to manufacture pet foods). Now Bozo's diet consists of Amul Gold milk, paneer and Venky's Regale (no eggs in the summer as one never knows how stale/bad they are). We are also giving it Venky's PAWS-UP 400 mg tab one a day comprising of glucosomine and chondroitin, zinc and magnesium, and also Pifzer's Nutrical comprising of calcium, phosphorous and vitamin D, and Isabgol. Not it eats well and craps well and the movement of its joints have improved. I want to ask you all your opinions on Venky's Regale Chicken Meal. Keep in mind that Venky's (Pune) is also in the business of hatcheries and broilers and has over 30 franchisees all over India. Most imported products as listed in this article are too pricey for me and I have not checked what preservatives they use. Venky's Regale Meal 4 kg pack is priced at Rs730

I have started feeding Taste of the Wild (tasteofthewildpetfood.com) to my dogs. I used to feed Hills. I can see a tremendous difference. I buy from 'Man's Best Friend' in bangalore. Phone: 8050005577. I think they have a web site also. try http://www.mansbestfriend.co.i n . The big bag 30lbs costs me 5300 (this is still cheaper than Hills). He offers discounts if you buy in bulk. Taste os the wild is approved by whole dog journal. I downloaded the whole dog 2011 list from the following link http://www.farmdogsusa.com/upl oads/2/8/2/7/2827144/wdj_2011_ best_dry_foods.pdf . Taste of wild is listed under Diamond pet products. As of now it think it is the only wdj approved food in india. lets hope they keep up supplies.

By: Vikram | 17 May 2011 5:04 pm

Hameed Sulaiman

Hi all, its been so long i visited Dogspot. gspal i am happy your dog is doing great. But you have explained it clearly that how many supplement you need when feeding a food like Regale.
@ Vikram I am happy for your dogs too, but sadly i have large breed dogs. Taste Of the Wild itself does not recommend it to Gaint Breeds. I will provide a Proof below. The only food it recommends is Sierra Mountain formula, Which contains lamb from USA, Which is not allowed in India, which can not be imported Legally. And we all know pet foods come and go only because of not providing proper certification.
On the other hand i am happy for myself because I feed my dogs Timberwolf Organics and my Labs are more active than ever, the coat is very shiny you will be amazed by the changes. I paid Rs. 4650 for a 33lbs bag(15kgs) and the meat content is much high that taste of the wild(i know because i have done proper research on how ingredients label is listed)It works out cheaper than IAMS or Royal Canine. This is the price he offers for customers anywhere in India, Delivered VIA DTDC courier at your door step. He has a different discount schemes. You can contact him at 8940444000 for better pricing.
Proof of TOTW not recommended for giant breeds.
http://www.tasteofthewildpetfo od.com/faq/

Click on the first question "Can giant breed puppies eat Taste of the Wild?"
And I also Noticed how the distributor of Taste of the wild omitted this from his FAQ. I would feel very uncomfortable buying from a irresponsible seller. Not all pet lovers can do research on all sorts of things regarding food.
I have to post this in other places so Giant breed and large breed puppy owners can make better decision on whats good for their dog.

By: Hameed Sulaiman | 25 May 2011 1:05 pm

RAJIV KULKARNI

@gspal, thank you for the link to getting TOTW in bangalore.
@ Hameed, TOTW web-site states that it can be fed to all kinds of breeds. However Giant Breeds tend to put on weight more easily so Sierra Mountain range which has 25% protien and lesser fat 15% is recommended. I feed High Prairie which is Roasted Bison and Venison which is 32% Protien and 18% Fat.

As quoted from TOTW web-site

"giant breed puppies should be fed controlled calorie amounts so that they do not grow too quickly. High protein, high fat formulas also have high calories"

I have not tried TimberWolf, I am satisfied with TOTW. Infact I used to feed Royal Canine earlier and feel that TOTW is much much better than RC. Also my dog's coat is much shinier, stool is more solid and his dry skin issue is also resolved.

Thanks,
Rajiv

Anil @ DoggiesDude

Gaint breed needs high protein and high carbo content diet. % of fat does not matter as it gets disposed if excess intaken.

By: Anil @ DoggiesDude | 25 May 2011 7:06 pm

Himanshu Mehta

TimberWolf hasn't been on the WDG list for sometime so buyers beware.
Some of us seem to be using the forum to plug products. We do great disiservice to pet lovers and the webmaster this way. Take out advertisements if you have to.
Anil: Chippy had stuverite crystals in her urine, anaemia, stressed liver and kidneys. The doctor had us take her off dog food completely. We were feeding her Orijen and Blue Buffalo (both grain free). He said such high protein levels (34% and 42%) are to be avoided. Moderate protein is the way to go here in the Delhi weather. He put her on porridge and she recovered even though the shine of her coat went dull. Now we feed her dog food (300-350 grams) once a day and 100-150 grams of wheat/oat porridge (with one egg, 50-75 grams of paneer, 400 grams of curd, vegetables) for the other meal. She has fully recovered and her shine and verve are back. The doctor said 'Imported Khaane mein desi tadka lagna jaroori hai).

By: Himanshu Mehta | 25 May 2011 10:52 pm

Anil @ DoggiesDude

did you have her ultrasound done to see the enlargement of liver/kidney? how is the spleen size? In such case, carbohydrates should be avoided and meat diet with less fat content be given. Well Kibbles somehow i do not trust much except in emergency when my meat supply is down. Less health issue . avoid milk products like cottage cheese. Try to keep her on lean meat diet and see how well it goes.
