Question regarding food<br>Question regarding food
Hi - my dog was ill about a week ago with a virus and on instruction from the vet we fed him chicken for three days. A problem occurred when we tried to get him back on Vet's Choice Pellets as he started turning his nose up at his food. Someone suggested we use a dessert spoon or two of soya mince to mix in with the pellets. My question is : is soya mince harmful to a dog?

Soya mince will not be harmful, but may possibly cause excessive gas. You can also just mix the chicken into his normal food, and slowly decreased the amount of chicken until he is used to eating his food only again.
