your welcome unless the recipe changed or different flavor no idea unless false adversiting on the tin or the site hasnt upgraded it? let them know what on your tin ingredients wise.

ideally you need a 3.5-5 star food if possible. still though pedigree is awful food and your getting her off it thankfully! whats the food with the 2.8 rating out of intrest?

Butchers natural nutrition loaf in jelly made with beef and tripe and chicken and tripe. I can't see anything that would class as fillers in ingredients.
Also I noticed on the link that they take points off for clarity of labelling and I must say it is pretty poor it doesn't even state how many calories per 100g that I can see.

Reason ingredients differ is because they need to update it last updated June 2013. Might want to contact them to update it. I notice on the site says meat and animal detratives but yours don't. Intresting. Long term can you afford to feed this food? Esp when pups arrive she will need heaps more food that's my only concern re the food. Though could do half dry half that when she needs a lot more food. @LoveMyFosters dog lost weight nursing and to put weight on was fed 19 cups a day to put weight on belle. Not saying yours will require all that food just a possibility to think about. Though belle had 13 pups one still born.

Hmm yes I will contact them to update.
Yes I will be able to afford to feed this long term I do half wet half dry anyway and this cuts down price a bit.
We are going to watch her weight anyway as she was on the podgy side to begin with - we got her at approx 3 weeks gone and she was just under 18kg and she's put on a shed load of weight in the last week I wonder if I'm feeding her too much? She has 400g of wet food and 2 handfuls of dried food split over 3 meals currently with no human scrapes

Roxy decided to panick me last night. She started panting at about 11pm and then shortly after started very quietly whimpering and couldn't settle. After about 20 mins she did calm down and go to sleep so not sure what happened there although I swear I saw her tummy moving at 1 point so I'm wondering if the puppies were just very active and causing her some discomfort.
Her tummy seems to have "popped" over night and she now has to be carried outside to go potty as she can't do the steps without dragging her nipples. Vets tomorrow for a check up and new scan

Hmm, that's interesting.. If she's only 7 weeks along she shouldn't be going into labor yet. It is possible that the pups did kick her extra hard, yes. What do you mean by, "popped"? Are you meaning her belly looks bigger than before?

I'm not sure what it was. She did calm down and she's been fine today just sleeping most of the day really.
Sorry by popped yes I meant her belly. She seems much rounder today and it's rock hard.
Felt lots of kicks today and they do feel quite strong but no more whimpering or panting. A bit clinger today thou didn't like it at all when I went for a shower.

have you been to vets yet? maybe previous owners got it wrong? i dont know but the stomach does expand and rounden to give pups more space afterall they are growing pups. think of pregant women all the time the stomach has to expand and grow and by time nearly time to give birth it is round as then it drops a bit when carrying babe lower in the pelvis ready for birth. probably same for dogs

We went to one vet (rspca one) and they estimated 4-5 weeks (so 5-6 weeks Wednesday just gone) but I think this is wrong from roxy's size and symptoms. Shes got vet appointment tomorrow afternoon for another scan to try and see how many pups there are and get an idea of size. Everything's ready now barring the finishing touches to the whelping box which I'm doing tomorrow and we are sleeping in the room and she seems happy in there. I've given her a blanket to cuddle upto during the day so I'm hoping if I put that in the whelping box it will make everything a bit smoother
