As a top breeder I only want the best for my dogs. I have used Wafcol Salmon and Potato dog food for almost eight years now and highly recommend it for your best friend too. Keeping dogs in tip top condition like my CRUFTS “Best in Show” winner Devon is very important and along with regular grooming, a good diet plays a big part in keeping the skin and coat healthy. Devon has always been fed a Wafcol diet. As a leading dog groomer I am also often asked for advice from our clients on a suitable diet for their dogs and with this in mind I would always recommend Wafcol. I have also suggested it to owners whose animals have had skin and coat issues with their pets having seen the improvements this food can make on many occasions. I highly recommend this food. Healthy on the inside means healthy on the outside.

Belle first started to show signs of allergies when she was about 18 months old - she would not be able to cope with people stroking her at all. She would say hi to strangers and they would delight in finding her “tickle spot” but in fact it was her whole body, and even a small stroke would set her off. We treated her for parasites regularly but tried switching brands to solve the problem before considering dietary causes. We had her on two exclusion diets and by the time she was 3 she looked a terrible state - dandruff had turned into scabs as she scratched herself raw. She would also occasionally vomit or suffer diarrhoea in the night... we were just so upset for her. Our vet said we should perhaps try Wafcol once we realised that Belle couldn’t tolerate chicken, and the salmon and potato kibble helped a lot. The final part of the puzzle clicked into place when we decided to completely cut any grain based treats from her diet. Since then she has had virtually no problems at all - she is a fish lover for life. It is wonderful to see her back with a glossy coat, no sensitive spots. She is a much happier girl and we now give her Wafcol for her meals as well as most of her treats - she comes running for a bit of kibble! We are very happy customers!!
For years and years it has been a constant battle getting our dogs diet correct. He is a furbaby with a sensitive tummy, allergies, itchy skin, from time to time his skin would flare up down to allergies (we were unanware of what his allergies were) and he bites, licks n ends up all red and sore. I have had to stop alot of treats as he may have been allergic to ingredients in them (even the "natural" ones) he is 9 years old now and i want nothing more than him to be happy and comfortable as he gets into his older years, and have the best wee life he has left. I was desperate. I tried all the grain free options, higher meat content, less derivative foods, exhausted all options. He remained relentless at nibbling and biting himself and making himself all sore.
He also now has an enlarged heart as well as heart disease and is on medication for these. Another problem he gets through diet is bum/intestine issues giving diarrhoea and sometimes he would be caught short indoors down to colitis.
I have always managed to maintain a healthy weight for him and i am very strict on anything he eats now because of the effects it can have on his skin and/or tummy.
Anyhow, a fellow cavalier owner suggested this product...
He is now onto his 4th bag. Wafcol is aimed at dogs with everything that solo has, it has no cereals, meats, dairy products or white fish. It helps aid sensitive digestion using salmon as the single fish protein source and potato as carbs. It includes ingredients for joint care and skin and coat care. Its hypoallergenic, it doesn't contain any of the main things that dogs can be allergic to.
RESULT: What an amazing difference i see in him. He enjoys it, his skin has not looked red or spotty or scabbed in months all white and healthy. His poos are good n no accidents at home. His weight is still great. Even his coat is lovely. It is pretty reasonably priced and i can get online at moment or locally if i order to pet shop.
I share this because if there's anyone who has a pooch with the same issues i know how frustrating it can be n its so unfair on them! So its worth a shot it has been fabulous for my wee guy!
You've had the story of my two Shelties on your website for some time but I thought you might like to know that we now have another - Crystal. She wasn't very bothered about food when she came, just eating slowly and not at all enthusiastically. We gradually changed her on to Wafcol as we wouldn't think of feeding anything else. She loves it and now looks exited at meal times, eating and enjoying everything. In the short time we've has her her coat is improving and she has more energy and 'joy de vivre'. Another Wafcol convert!!
We have had Poppy for nearly 5 yrs; she was 5-6 months old when we had her. She was rescued by Four Paws in Wales, she was found in Ireland. She was very skinny and supposedly scared of everything. Lucky for Poppy she had a brilliant foster mom who looked after her and helped build her weight up a bit. When she came home with us she fitted in to family life, she is brilliant with children and most other dogs she meets. She loves walking, playing ball and mostly dirty water and fox poo. When she was about 2 1/2 she had reoccurring ear problems, runny poo and started to chew her feet. We narrowed it down to her food and did loads of research and talking to friends and Wafcol was mentioned again and again so we tried it and the improvements where almost immediate, her poo had definite shape and definitely less wind. Over time she had less ear problems and didn't chew her feet constantly and her coat was amazing. Last year for reasons I'd rather not discuss we changed her to a different food, it was good but the difference was noticeable, she started chewing her feet more, was back to the vets for antibiotics for her ear and her lovely smooth coat went fuzzy ! Needless to say she is back on Wafcol and is great again, I'm hoping we never have to change it again and as I mentioned we are going to start our new rescue on it now.
