Keep Away

published

The dog likes it, but it turned her poop feral. The stench was incredible (cat poop x 10). I got some of her poop on my leg (she's incontinent due to injury), which burned and left a mark similar to nappy rash.

Purchased in February 2020 for $6.00.

Made my dog very sick.

Within a couple of hours my dog started vomiting. Now his poo has turned green and slimy. He has no energy. What the hell is this food made out of?

Purchased in August 2019 at Coles Supermarkets.

Loved by....

published

This dog food is loved...but not by my dogs (who leave it). It’s the big black ants who swarm over it who love it.

Horrible food

published

This dog food is terrible we feed it to our dogs and within 3hrs our staffy who ate a whole howl of it has been vomiting for about 12 hrs now and our Maltese won't touch it they've never been sick after eating dog food before our poor staffy can't keep anything down now even after changing her to Pal

Made my dog very sick

published

My Shih Tzu Maltese started on this last Monday. Over the weekend she was vomiting constantly, so we took her to the vets who gave her an anti-nausea injection and some chicken + rice dog food for her to eat.

She has been on the chicken and rice for 4 days now and no vomitting.

Today we started mixing the chicken and rice with the Coles kibble, and she again has been vomiting excessively.

We've thrown out this cheap crap and put her back on MyDog.

The only positive out of this is taking her to the vet we found a cyst in her nipple during the check up and can now treat her for it.

Waste of money

published

Mixed it with some really good dog food to get more out of it. My dogs don't want to eat it. And they usually clean there bowls in first 5 mins. might have to through it out. A waste of 70 dollars. 2 coles brand bags and 1 good one. I think coles should start refunding people and take this crap of the shelves.

BAD food

published

I recently bought a puppy and the owner (breeder) fed her this food. If it was me I would have never touched it. Coles complete balance dog food is filled with grains & animal parts that humans don't eat. Poor puppy's stools were soft and stinks so bad. The food clearly didn't go too well in her stomach. So I had to think quick and did my research on other puppy food so I can switch for her. Don't waste your money on this food because long term there will be health issues with your poor dog. More money wasted going to the vet. Will not recommend!

Don't subject your poor dog to this...

published

I like to mix up different foods for variety for my dog, she loves food and will eat anything, but won't go near this. Not a problem I thought, I'll mix it with some water and put it out for the wild birds (Currawongs etc) to eat - nope, won't go near it like they do other dog biscuit brands. Okay, there are foxes over the back fence who are sure to eat this (can't let it go to waste) - nope still no takers. If a hungry fox still won't eat it I question if there is anything in the product that even remotely resembles food! I feel sorry for the poor dogs who have no choice but to eat this product day in day out - Coles should be ashamed of it.

It's inedible

Terrible

published

A cheap pet food, my dogs hate it. And it looks as if its made of cardboard. Not a quality food, and personally i would prefer to spend extra and have the peace of mind that my pets are getting all the nutritional requirements they need. Wouldnt recomend it.
Affordable compared to other brands.
Everything else.

Excellent

published

Probably our best buy when it comes to dog food - he likes it, it is easy for him to handle, and becuase it is a dry food - it ig good to travel with. He prefers it to some more expensive foods.
The price. The 'smart buy' brands are cheaper still, but this one is a complete dog food, and it usually cheaper than the name brands. The small pieces are great for our dog - as he is missing a few teeth, but still needs something with a bit of crunch
Not much at all really - the dog likes it - no reason to complain about this food

Good

published

Our dogs tend to be fussy at times and when we get this we have to mix it through their wet food to 'disguise' it.
Is cheap without being nasty. Ingredients are listed as you would expect from the front...BEEF and RICE
Not quite as palatable as Purina, but is much cheaper
