Big problems for my cocker spaniel
My dog liked this so I changed from a very mixed good diet to this dry food. He has been on this since last match so more or less a year. During this time he has lost most his coat from his rear end and legs and stomach and the rest of his coat is horribly thin. I took him to the vet who said it was an allergy and treated him so but in think it's linked to this food and was so interested in reading these posts. I'm stopping tonight and giving him a really good diet which does not consist of this product. Fingers crossed that this works as he looks just dreadful and I cannot believe I didn't consider his diet earlier. Not only has he lost his fur but his skin is red and wrinkled..poor thing
Purchased for $38.00.
Not even ants go near it.
So toxic is this dry dog food my great Dane was immediately covered in an allergy. The pain of an allergic reaction is terrible to watch. On closer inspection the ants would crawl all over the VIP natures goodness and market garden but nowhere near the supercoat. Which would suggest a radioactive element in the dog food. DO NOT FEED ANY DOG THIS POISON.
It is a ok midrange dogfood.
Dog likes the food, however, i found its not much filling for the dog . No change in bowel formation.
Dog loves it
My pup loves this will not eat anything else but this one, it’s very cost efficient can always find it at a good price between coles and woolworths
Great for my babies
My baby has pancreatitis and can only eat dog food under 10% fat, this is an excellent brand and the dogs love it. It is also very reasonably priced as i have 2 dogs to feed a bag can last me up to a month, so I would recommend this ood o any dog lover.
Supercoat healthy weight. Definitely not for everydog
My dog loved the taste but after a few days of feeding (and yes I followed the instructions for slow intro of new food) experienced severe diarrhea and vomiting, blood in diarrhea, straining to poo and pain. I spent over $800 at the vet (tested for pancreatitis, liver and kidney function and a bunch of other things) and they found nothing wrong except dehydration and recent change in food. His “Illness” abated after I changed his food.
This week I took on a second dog and since I still had a heap of the food left over I thought perhaps my dog old was sensitive and this young guy might be fine with it. Three days in and the diarrhea has started. This stuff is literally the worse dog food I’ve ever fed my dogs.
My dogs love this brand and their coats are really glossy price is very good as well highly recommend this product
I'm not sure why everybody here is bashing the brand but my dog loves this food. I buy the 18 kg bags from PetCircle for around $40, which saves me a lot of money compared to buying Royal Canin or Hills. My staffy is thriving off this food and his coat is shining. He has pyoderma as a result of a flea allergy which has resulted in hair loss and scaly skin. His skin looks beautiful now and his hair is growing back. I'm guessing that reviews which state that their dogs experienced vomiting and diarrhoea is because of them changing their dogs food after sticking with one specific brand for a while, resulting in an upset stomach, or their dogs have food sensitivities and hence they have to eat foods e.g. Royal Canin Sensitivity
my dog lost his coat ... terribly
My dog had terrible reactions to this “food”... terrible skin reaction and a mange like appearance lost almost all his fur, changed to a vet brand food and now enjoying his luscious long hair again... don’t feed your dog this stuff!!
Do not feed this to your dog
This dog food has caused severe diarrhea, vomiting and excessive shedding to my German Shepard and has caused him discomfort in his bowel and backside. My husband actually wanted to sue them for poisoning our dog. Do not give this to your dog you will poison them slowly.
Caused severe diarrhea
I bought this brand for the first time and my dog got me up four times in the night, each night, after the two times I fed it. My dog can usually eat anything with no adverse consequences.
Last night after a change of food, we both had some peace.
Two nights and days ruined for me not to mention the dog. Cleaning the back yard was also most unpleasant. The Purina is going back to Cole's now.
My dogs love this food!
My dogs love this food! I’ve seen such an improvement in their coats and moods! They stay fuller for longer and they love the great taste. I get it in 20kg bags from my local Tucker’s store. It’s always on special so it’s not too expensive. They also sell it online at www.tuckersstore.com.au
I will mix this with other foods and sometimes wet pedigree cans too. So happy with it!
Our dogs love this produce and I know its good for them as their coats are shiny
We have been buying this produce for a long time, only occasionally changing to other brands when what we wanted wasn't available. Our dogs never seemed to like these other products so we always searched for what they liked keeping in mind where we could purchase it for the best price.
Much better options out there
I was lured into the brand at first by the name "Supercoat", believing the food would do justice on my dogs' coats. The food has caused many problems in my dogs, such as diarrhoea, vomit and actually excessive shedding. Guess it's all marketing at the end...
"Wholegrain Barley and/or Corn and/or Sorghum"
Those does not scream out quality products. With all the "and"s and "or"s, I'm guessing the company is using which ever ingredient that is cheapest at the time to manufacture. It's good to see meat as the first ingredient, but considering the rest of the list and the price tag on the product, this is not the best choice. Since it is now not rare to find much better quality grain free brands out on the supermarket shelves, Supercoat's quality falls behind the average. It's not the worst, but definitely not even close to good.
Smaller bag but same price.
Having 3 large Dobermans means the cost of feeding can be significant and when I started running out of food before the normal timeframe I began to wonder why. It turned out that the 20kg bag is now only 18.5kg. That means a drop of 3kgs over my buying cycle. Funny that the price didn't drop. No notice to my knowledge.
Get what you pay for
Per vet and pet food wholesaler supercoat is like feeding your dog cardboard. Our bordercollie was constantly itching and had lots of loose poop but it has all stopped with change to dry food who's top 5 ingredients are not crap left over from making beer, husks of things and cereal leftovers...with a bit of meat by product thrown in so it qualifies as food. Shame on the company.
Constant Diarrhoea with new pack containing "SmartBlend"
I have fed my 2 German Shepherds Supercoat Large Breed chicken for several years with no problems. In recent months since the new "SmartBlend" package came out one of my shepherds had constant diarrhoea. On going to the vet and having multiple tests and treatments it only cleared up when we switched to the Hills Prescription ZD dry food. As this is extremely expensive and after a month or more on it I switched back to the Supercoat for a trial (no other changes to his food). Within a few days his diarrhoea came back, never having a solid stool. I switched to BlackHawk Large Breed (still much more expensive than Supercoat) and the diarrhoea has totally settled again. Meanwhile my other Shepherd has no problems with the Supercoat and we continue to use it for her. It would appear that some dogs have a poor tolerance to the new blend.
Supercoat caused MOTHS in my house since 4 weeks ago every night
I will never ever use super coat dry or wet food ever again... I've always kept my dry food indoors and now i've switched to Supercoat my house is FULL OF MOTHS.. because of one bad bag i always empty the bag into a 20 kilo fully sealed container. MOTHS every time i open the container they fly out and now they have laid eggs somewhere. I kill about 10 - 15 per day then next day i get home from work and there back... I find the nightly killing moth rampage is really killing me...Sure i now keep all dog food outside now the moths are still around... they swarm all over me while i'm even eating dinner....I contacted Supercoat last week and i still await a reply
New pack causes Diarrhoea
We have been providing two meals to our German Shepherd since she became an adult. First meal in the day, is our cooked meat. Second meal in the day, is PURINA dry food. In our recent purchase at our local supermarket, we bought two different bag on two different batch. We opened one of the bag. Our dog suffered Diarrhoea. We took our dog to Vet and was given medication. Once she got better, we slowly gave her our own cooked meal without the purina dry food. She totally recovered from her Diarrhoea. We needed to test what the cause of the Diarrhoea, so we once again gave the purina dry food as part of her diet. There we found her Diarrhoea came back. We now stopped giving her the purina. We would like to return the two bags of 7.5kgs to Purina. Please let us know how to go about it.
Dog enjoys it, i do not
I dont eat it obviously.
Dog likes the taste of it. it is marked to be very healthy and good for dogs. Look at the ingredients and how much of it is in a serving. filled with fake stuff and fat!
