Anybody on here give me advice on what is best to feed him , I’ve been feeding him beta junior with half a tin of tinned stuff and it’s giving him the shits most of time , any advice on something I could give him as it’s a pain in the arse picking up shit that’s came out through the eye of a needle

Ditch the tin get a bag of sensitive complete or try a lower protein complete but don't keep changing it, give him a couple of weeks to get used to it, and plenty of water....or cook up rice with a bit of tin fish or chicken in it.. but not good for a young dog to have diarrhea for prolonged periods, atb Joe

The sire is a first cross or first generation, the dams must be 11 and 12 generation DG X DG?

He caught a rabbit the other day and since then he’s wanting to chase everything , I’m not saying he’s going to be a world beater or anything like that but he is definitely keen on anything that moves 

How old is he now mate?

He may be intolerant to grain, there's a lot of grain free options out there from barf to dry.

there are allot of experts on feeding lurchers but a decent complete is plenty good enough for most knockabout dogs, imho.

Been feeding Millies Wolfheart peak performance with a good quality raw meat. Dogs looking well & running well on it, holds his weight perfect as well. It’s pricey but you can’t expect them to give 100% if you’re not doing the same for them.

I'll second that. I found my dogs kept great condition on a mix of good quality complete and raw, including a couple of pounds of green tripe

Mine can’t get enough of tripe they love it, I’ve always been a fan of it for dogs

If he has the shits it's likely his body is rejecting something and flushing his system with fluids, there's lots of good and bad diets out there but I don't think that's the issue, it's more likely you need to remove some ingredients.

I eat more than my share of bad food but still have good shits ( king Kong's finger) however if I get the shits it's usually something specific that disagrees or a stomach bug.
