    Tester’s comments

    “I prefer feeding Casper dry food because I don’t like the thought of leaving meat out, especially during summer,” explains HHO writer Emma Thomas. “Dry food is also more practical, as he is a fussy eater and prefers to snack throughout the day rather than eat his meal in one go.

    I’ve tried Casper on several types of dry food and this is by far his favourite. It comes in small round pellets and he seems to find this easier to eat than some larger varieties of dry food.

    Casper also leads a very active life – he accompanies me on hacks, comes running and loves to go swimming.

    He sometimes looked a little bit on the lean side but since feeding this food he has kept weight on and has bundles of energy.

    In the past, Casper has suffered with dry itchy skin and has needed extra oil in his feed and regular washes with specialist shampoos. Since being fed on Nutro Choice Adult Performance he has got a lovely shiny coat and his skin is soft and supple.

    In comparison to other dry foods, Adult Performance is quite expensive, but I no longer have to buy extra oil or medicated shampoos from the vet, so it is more economical in the long run. And, of course, it makes Casper healthy and happy, and that is what matters most!
