wainwrights is 4.4 stars on UK site The Dog Food Directory - now listing 1472 dog foods! id go with highest rating possible thats in budget personally. no idea if you need to feed grains to pregnant dog or not but @LoveMyFosters will know? James wellbeloved is 3.4 stars so for the price i saw overpriced.

I do know you can get taste of the wild there, with acana, orijen not sure how they fit in budget though theres one called millies wolfheart that gets 5.0 Stars. those are a few examples though. evoluation naturally when i saw it last year was expensive then wainwrights by a pound or two cost wise for small bag so prob not a option for you?

Firstly, can I say I'm sorry people on another forum were rude to you, I think the dog is very lucky to have been rescued by such a kind person, she could so easily gotten into the wrong hands. A couple of things, with regards to the food, I buy mine online from Zooplus & Vetuk is also a good site. I have no experience of a pregnant dog, but I know Applaws is a good brand & Arden Grange (my dog has that) James Wellbeloved is also good. I would avoid Hills, too much grain, not enough meat. If you can afford it then Royal Canin is very good (although I tried my dog on that & she prefers Arden Grange )
On another note, be careful when finding homes for the puppies, there are some unscrupulous people out there who may want a Staffie pup to be raised for fighting or a breeding machine, I would go through a good rescue.
Good luck with it all, can't wait to see pics of the little ones!!

Hi I had to get butchers today as I was running low. It's a high protein loaf with jelly which is gluten free and it is 52% meat (this is the highest I found that isn't animal derivative). I'm going to start changing her over today.
I've had a bit of a problem today. Her whelping box arrived but it's way to small and looks very flimsy so I refused delivery so I'm wondering if she absolutely has to have a whelping box or if I can use my huge chest of drawers turned over its 100 x 100 x 46 cm. We are moving into the spare room where she will whelp on Friday so she can get used to the room.
I don't know if anyone can advise but I used to have 2 guinea pigs in there up until middle of december when they sadly passed but I'm not sure if she'll still be able to smell them and get upset as I know she needs to be away from other animals.

Hi thanks I looked at the link and found the food I had to buy today and it has a low score 2.8 but the information given is different from what's on the tin any idea why this might be or is it something simple like a changed reciepe?

Pregnant dogs do not have to be fed grains, all they really need is a good quality, balanced diet.

You don't have to use a whelping box, a lot of things can work just fine such as a large cardboard box, etc. As long as she can comfortably lie down stretched out on her side with room for pups, then it should work just fine. Even if there is any smell left over from the guinea pigs it shouldn't be a worry.

That is normal, pups can be felt as early as the 6th week sometimes. Once she hits the 8th and 9th week you will really feel and see them kick.

It was so cool. It was a proper kick as well poor girl jumped so much she almost fell off the bed. My husband said he thought he felt something about 3 days ago but couldn't be sure.

Yes, it is very cool to feel them! It has actually be proven that petting momma dog's belly will wake the pups up and make them move closer to your hand, so in short puppies like pets even when they are in the womb.
