Cheryl Pepper Millie Sophie on Best Low Fat Dog Foods I give them treats from a company called cocotherapy-the fruit & veggie,& stars. I don't buy any other treats commercially. they love carrots blueberries apples( I peel them) green beans-the veggies i lightly steam. When pepper was alive would cook them more so she digested them better.Bones are difficult, when the weather gets cooler here,I might have to consider raw meat bones. How old is Bella? Mary I would stop the rice, just stick with the boiled ground turkey or chicken with sweet…

Cindy Reiter on Mauri Dog Food (Canned) I have an older dog that seems healthy in every way except for his eating habits. Always have fed hight end dog food. He almost stopped eating completely and had runny stools. No one really knew what to do and then someone suggested to stop feeding chicken based dog food. I switched to a diet for sensitive stomachs--still no improvement and my dog literally would not eat his food for 2 or 3 days. By chance found Mauri and the sales person recommended the grass fed goat and pumpkin. Lo and…

Mary Ellen on Best Low Fat Dog Foods I am sending my husband this morning to pick up the pumpkin and a couple of sweet potatoes too, thank you. Bella is getting better but this morning she thru up again some some milky bile. I am thinking it is too much rice. Her enthusiasm is coming back, and she is alert again to which I am thankful. If you can think of anything else please let me know. Thank you

Hugh Sach on Canned or Dry Dog Food — What’s the Better Choice? Dogs should be fed dog food and nothing else! We don't eat dog food or cat food, it's human food for a reason, just as it is dog food for a reason, would you feed dog food to a cat or rabbit?
September 3, 2015 5:28 am

Hugh Sach on Canned or Dry Dog Food — What’s the Better Choice? My parents who are dog experts mix the two foods together with a dash of water, although having to keep canned food refrigerated after being opened is a big myth, as long as you cover the top with something, you can keep it in a cupboard out of the sun
September 3, 2015 5:26 am

Jake Hintz on Taste of the Wild (Dry) I too feed what the bag recommends. It doesn't seem like enough at all but there are times where food is left over. And Maya is a big girl, she is 63.5 lbs. Dakota is much smaller at 42.5 lbs. You can always add an extra cup or half cup to see if she will put on weight. But yes you will use much less than the grain full foods. We feed them in the early morning and once at our dinner time and the seem rather happy with that schedule. You can always feed them with fresh foods from time to time…

TuMadre, Ph.D on Acana Regionals Grain-Free (Dry) Well, to be fair, I would rather eat cooked chicken than dog food, too. I have a yorkie poo, and two bichon poodle mixes. I've had them all since they were puppies, and there has been always been food down and available for their entire lives (and not a single one is overweight, despite owning a 2 year old, a 4 year old, and a 7 year old). I remember first switching over from Beneful to Acana Ranchlands. I had to refill all three bowls twice before they realized that the food wasn't a treat,…

ShepAussie on I and Love and You Nude Food (Dry) Why did you think this?
September 2, 2015 11:03 pm

Leia's_mom on Dog Food Calculator Hmm, so this calc recommend 1.10 cups of food a day. Opinions anyone? My 32lb small one year old goldendoodle, Leia, who is overweight, she should only be 25-27 pounds can't shed those extra pounds! I've recently switched her to Acana wild P because it's what I've narrowed down to (and she loves it) I'm trying to up her walks but living down here on south miami it gets quite unbearably hot. I would think 1 cup of acana wild prairie a day would be too much for her if i want her to loose about 4-6…

Lacnunga on Pedigree Dog Food (Dry) Duh! The whole point is that wire/bristle/plastic is being found in Nestle Purina, Nestle Purina/Merrick AND Mars Pedigree..
September 2, 2015 9:55 pm

JeremyScott10 on Best Low Fat Dog Foods I get the organic canned pumpkin from Whole Foods and keep it in freezer bags. I flatten the pumpkin in the freezer bags so pumpkin ends up very thin when frozen and it's easy to break off pieces when needed. It defrosts quickly but you can also put in a dish then put in a pan with hot water. I don't use microwave b/c it changes the molecular structure of the food, along with nutrients. My dogs are small and I give 1-2 teaspoons in their meal once a day.Good to hear your pup is recovering.
September 2, 2015 9:50 pm

Judy on Nature’s Logic (Dry) My son owns a pitt that had this. They switched to blue buffalo wilderness and was told by pb breeders that bc she is blue it will run its course and go away. And now she looks great. Good luck!

Pitlove on Taste of the Wild (Dry) Beautiful dogs
September 2, 2015 8:22 pm

Pitlove on Taste of the Wild (Dry) Robbie- Happy to hear you found a food that is much better quality and is working for your girl. It's never too late to learn. I wouldn't urge you not to feed Taste of the Wild, but what I will urge you to do is to sign up for the free recall emails. Only for the fact that Diamond manufactures TotW and they are notorious for recalls. TotW has not had a recall since 2012, but it's always good to be in the loop just in case.Best of luck with this new food and your girl. My picky dog enjoyed…
September 2, 2015 8:21 pm

Pitlove on Nature’s Logic (Dry) Thanks for your concern Amanda. We are seeing a new vet and plan to also see a dermatologist per her recommendation. So far he's doing well on the food he's on, along with the salmon oil he gets daily with both meals. A lot of the hair loss in those pictures has improved a lot. I still need to get him to the dermatologist, but I'm currently in a financial bind as I need to pay for a hernia surgery for my cat.To me his symptoms mimic seborrhea, but it has not been diaganosed yet. I do have a…

Amanda Hurst on Nature’s Logic (Dry) Pitlove...have things been getting better with your fur baby? I had some of the exact same issues awhile back, and changing his food wasn't all that was needed.. it was caused by some bad dog food and allergies....he ended up needing a some medications from the vet and special shampoo and a fast change in dog food, we keep him on a steady food.. I was like u and feeling like I failed and in tears, and if u do not have a vet that will help or listen please find a new one....u can email me at…

Cheryl Pepper Millie Sophie on Best Low Fat Dog Foods Mary, I have 2 mini's & 3 toy schnauzers. My late angel Pepper (who is pictured,my silver fox) had everything but pancreatitis -she had inflammatory bowel disease,so i am a pumpkin ,sweet potato old hand. I would get the organic pumpkin puree in a can-not pie filling. whole foods fresh market carry it or your local vitamin store,online vitacost.com has the best prices. I would serve it to her room temp. of course you have to keep it in the frig., so i would take a few spoonfuls out and…
September 2, 2015 6:35 pm

Mary Ellen on Best Low Fat Dog Foods Can you please share a recipe for how you fix the pumpkin or sweat potato I have a small miniature schnauzer with pancreatitis that is now getting back to normal. I have been boiling white rice and giving her 2 to 1 part parboiled chicken breast. She is bouncing back. The vet gave me EN purina but she will not have any part of it.
September 2, 2015 5:57 pm

Pitlove on I and Love and You Nude Food (Dry) My dog also does fine with pork. He probably likes pork the most out of all the proteins.
September 2, 2015 5:26 pm

Pitlove on Low Protein Dog Foods Yeah, I find that just seeing one study done on something is really not enough emprical evidence to completely avoid all other treatments or better yet getting to the root of the anxiety. Just like with human anxiety. Masking the problem with meds or in this case a diet, is not really figuring out what is causing the anxiety and fixing it.I'll be interested in hearing about this expo and what was said when you go.
September 2, 2015 5:25 pm

Robbie on Taste of the Wild (Dry) Jake it is good to find another husky owner. How. Much do you feed your dogs? Or should I say how much do you recommend I feed mine? When I took her to the vet earlier this month she was at 32 pounds. But that is when she was at her worse. She gained a little on the Pedigree, but not much. I have been feeding the recommendation on the bag, but at the rate she is filling out I don't know. It seems like too little, but I have always fed crap food to all my dogs throughout life. (Unknowingly of…

Pat on Nature’s Recipe Grain Free (Tubs) Thanks, she really does love this food

Pat on Nature’s Recipe Grain Free (Tubs) what about the carageenan in it..since it is so far down on the list, maybe not so bad?

D'andre Harris on How to Determine Your Dog’s Ideal Weight Thanks for the reply, sorry it tooks so long to respond.I could care less what the dogs age is, if I feel a connection with a dog I will get it, its why I cant volunteer at shelters because I wouldnt be able tos top myself with walking out with 10 dogs haha. I also completely agree, to many people overlooks adult dogs and in my area small dogs are also much more popular so to many large adult dogs never get adopted. We have 3 dogs, a 10 year old Pitbull/Mix named Mocha, 5 year old…

aquariangt on Low Protein Dog Foods While classical conditioning is the best option here, I would use certain remedies and medications over a low protein diet
September 2, 2015 11:58 am

aquariangt on Low Protein Dog Foods I actually know a vet behaviorist that suggests under 21%. I don't agree. There is 1 study that is used in these recommendations, and it was linked. Very little has been done on the subject, and it's frustrating that they all hold to this. Not vet behaviorist, but myself and other trainers around here do not agree with this sentiment, and maybe in the next few years a new study will come out about this very subject ;-) However, at clicker expo this year there is a diet and behavior link class.…

Crazy4cats on I and Love and You Nude Food (Dry) Hi AmandaP- I've heard that from others also. However, I just finished up a bag of WEF Pork, Beef and Lamb kibble and topped it with Pork Primal frozen raw nuggets a few days a week with no issues. My dogs do fine with pork. Good luck with whatever you decide to feed! :)
September 2, 2015 9:16 am

Pitlove on Low Protein Dog Foods This is certainly interesting, especially the part about aggression. My dog eats a variety of levels of protein. He's eaten very high (over 40% on a DMB) and is currently eating a food that I consider to be low (about 25% on a DMB). He's a pitbull that is intact, and while he exhibits dominant behavior, he has never been aggressive on high protein. In fact he's never been aggressive at all dispite living with 2 other intact male dogs and meeting a variety of dogs, intact and not. He also has no…

CoolSpring Labradors on Eagle Pack Dog Food (Dry) Ok we did it....kennel is on Eagle Pack came in yesterday 10 bags 30/19 for in show and the 10 Adult Large Breed......retired group. Food looks of superb high quality dry food and has good oil content.
September 2, 2015 8:09 am

Jake Hintz on Taste of the Wild (Dry) I have 2 female huskies. Maya is 8, and Dakota is 2.5. Maya has been on totw for about 4 years and Dakota ever since we got her at 6 months old. Thier coats are nice and soft and very shiny. They both love their food. I switch every month between all the flavors but the Sierra blend. For some reason that 30 lb bag lasted 1.5x longer than the rest, so they just wernt into it. I'm sure your pup will love this brand. Good luck!
September 2, 2015 7:42 am

Crazy4dogs on I and Love and You Nude Food (Dry) TheBCnut is right. I feed my dogs fresh cooked pork on a regular basis but never any that's been preserved or brined in any manner. If it's too fatty, I just trim off the excess before cooking.
September 2, 2015 7:07 am

Anna Miller on Garlic in Dog Food — Good or Bad for Your Pet? There are two great videos on this forum, but both conflicting a bit. What brought me here...I gave a fresh squized juice to 3 of my dogs, it was a garlic tooth added, it was a pretty big container of juice, but dogs got a very small amount of this. My Parti Yorkie about 9 pounds 1 y.o.got very sick and had to go to doctor. The blood test was ok, but the temperature was high and the liver fuction was a bit off. They did what ever procedures needed and kept the dog for two hours in clinic. The…

Robbie on Taste of the Wild (Dry) I have a 8 month old female Siberian Husky. I just got her last month and she was in terrible shape. Her ribs and spine were showing. I bought her pedigree puppy, not knowing any better. She would barely eat it, and her stool was always soft. I finally got a 5 lb bag of TOTW wetlands, after much research. The difference was nothing short of amazing. In one week she has filled out, stool is firm, and she eats every bite soon as I put it down. I give this food 10 stars. I may switch between…

FarpointRelay on Nestle Purina Buys Merrick Pet Care Hmmm... So this must be why the local petco has a big sale on the Merrick canned food... I was reading some negative reviews on Amazon about the latest batches... Oh well, another one bites the dust...
September 2, 2015 12:40 am

Crazy4cats on Low Protein Dog Foods I have a cat on anxiety meds and I have read about tryptophan helping with the issue. Royal Canin makes a "calm" formula with this ingredient for both cats and dogs. I hope you find something that works.
September 1, 2015 10:42 pm

Tamara Marks on Low Protein Dog Foods It was recommended to me by my vet behaviorist who said that another famous vet (I'd have to ask her the name) did a study linking high protein diets to aggression and anxiety.Effect of dietary protein content and tryptophan supplementation on dominance aggression, territorial aggression, and hyperactivity in dogs SUMMARY: L-tryptophan is a biosynthetic precursor for the neurotransmitter serotonin. It has been hypothesized that decreased concentrations of this amino acid would lead to…
September 1, 2015 10:02 pm

Pitlove on Low Protein Dog Foods I'm also confused, but interested in understanding why you were recommended a low protein food for anxiety. If you want to take another route so that you can continue feeding a more species appropriate amount of animal protein, I've used a product called Rescue Remedy for Pets. I used it on a 31 hour car ride down to Louisiana when I moved last year with my 6 year old cat. It was recommended by his old vet, as it was herbal and not a seditive which it was I was most concerned about. It worked…
September 1, 2015 9:54 pm

Crazy4cats on Low Protein Dog Foods Hi Tamara- I don't know about low protein helping with anxiety, but if you are looking for kibble, check out the three star foods. Reputable Brands such as Fromm, Halo, Pro Pac, Sportmix and 4Health make kibble that are lower in protein. Good luck!

Ty on Pedigree Dog Food Recall Expanded Live in northern Minnesota and found wires in a lot of pieces of food now my dog has a hard time breathing won't eat and has no energy, if my dog dies there's going to be hell to pay
September 1, 2015 9:42 pm

Crazy4cats on How to Choose the Best Large Breed Puppy Food and Lower Your Dog’s Risk of Hip Dysplasia Very cute pup! My favorite budget friendly kibble is Victor, Whole Earth Farms (made by Merrick) and Eagle Pack (made by same co. as Wellness). Favorite budget canned is 4Health, Kirkland, WEF, and Pure Balance.Hope this helps!
September 1, 2015 9:22 pm

theBCnut on I and Love and You Nude Food (Dry) Ham and bacon can be loaded with nitrates and sugar. Pork can be very fatty and brined. The meat itself is not the problem. It's what may have been done to it that's a problem. I feed my dogs pork all the time, but it's plain pork, nothing added.
September 1, 2015 8:58 pm

Tamara Marks on Low Protein Dog Foods Vet recommended 19% - 22%. His food right now is 29%.
September 1, 2015 8:12 pm

Tamara Marks on Low Protein Dog Foods Thanks. I know the brand. It's $$$$. Will look at the percentage though!

Bobby dog on How to Choose the Best Large Breed Puppy Food and Lower Your Dog’s Risk of Hip Dysplasia Hi Nicole: What's your budget? Where will you be buying the food Internet, brick and mortar, both?
September 1, 2015 7:50 pm

Pitlove on How to Choose the Best Large Breed Puppy Food and Lower Your Dog’s Risk of Hip Dysplasia Hi- Now that your mix has reached 1 year old his body can absorb calcium correctly (actually he could at 10 months, but feeding a LBP food til 1 year is not a bad idea). My pitbull who is a year and 3 months old is eating the Fromm Gold Large Breed Adult and is doing very well on it. Also, they make an excellent LBP food in their Gold line and it is cheaper than Wellness. However, you can certainly switch him to an adult food now.…
September 1, 2015 7:16 pm

Nicole Chevy on How to Choose the Best Large Breed Puppy Food and Lower Your Dog’s Risk of Hip Dysplasia Greetings, I have a German Shepherd/Border Collie mix, Shloppy, who is now a one year old. He is 62 lbs and seems to have some growing left. I have had him on Wellness Large Breed Puppy food (purchased through Chewy.com) but I am on a budget now and will not be able to continue the Wellness LBP food. Do you have any recommendations for LBP food that is more affordable but healthy? Should Shloppy stay on puppy food now that he is 1 year old?Thank you for your help.
September 1, 2015 6:51 pm

aquariangt on NutriSource Dog Food (Dry) i'd just use some single protein meat treats with no other ingredients for something you know they're ok with and go from there. A few brands I like: Sojos, Weruva, Boulder Dog Food, The Honest Kitchen, Primal
September 1, 2015 6:46 pm

AmandaP on I and Love and You Nude Food (Dry) I always thought pork wasn't good for dogs?
September 1, 2015 6:44 pm

Crazy4dogs on NutriSource Dog Food (Dry) Bobby Dog gave you some good options. My dogs love THK Beams, but they're more like a chew than a treat. You could go "old school" and make them yourself. I actually bought a dehydrator and make sweet potato chews for my dogs. You can dehydrate anything including meat. It costs much less and you know exactly what your dog is getting. :)Edit: I also use pieces of apples, cantalope, watermelon (in the summer)
September 1, 2015 6:38 pm

14Sunshine on NutriSource Dog Food (Dry) Thank you very much, I will see about getting better treats for them (1 kind at a time) see how we do.
September 1, 2015 6:26 pm

Pitlove on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) Yes it is. Purina bought Zukes some years back and has yet to touch the recipe for the treats. I've seen people returning Merrick food that they bought pre-buyout, just because of the buyout. I call that blind rage and completely ridiculous.
September 1, 2015 4:46 pm

DLT88 on Ethoxyquin — Controversial Dog Food Additive Don't believe anything our gov agencies claim is safe. I fed Science Diet kibble to many cats 20 years ago and did not know about the Ethoxyquin in Science Diet. 9 out of 10 (I was caring for a neutered feral colony) cats fed that food got cancer -- lymphomas and mostly intestinal lymphoma and suffered horrendously!! Don't believe any place that claims that Ethoxyquin is safe -- it's a d*mn carcinogen. Don't buy Hills. They still defend their killer foods.
September 1, 2015 4:29 pm

Lana Martin on Low Protein Dog Foods Sorry Tamara, I just realized you were asking about anxiety. You might ask about this for anxiety as well. You can't find it in Petco or Petsmart, you have to go to a Pet boutique that is more knowledgeable. They can also recommend something if this isn't what you are looking for.
September 1, 2015 3:55 pm

Lana Martin on Low Protein Dog Foods Honest Kitchen dehydrated dog food. After a lot of research and recommendation from a vet nutritionalist, this came very highly recommended. You can go online and get information to back this up. My dog has borderline kidney disease, and protein content along with phospherus are where you want them. You don't want to go to low on protein as it used to be believed, you want a midrange protein high quality food. Dry dog food has little moisture and for kidney issues, moisture is important.

14Sunshine on NutriSource Dog Food (Dry) Thanks, I think it may not be the actual food, I did change their treats, I bet anything it could be the treats. Almost gone, will eliminate them from their diet. Anyone know of a decent treat?

Jane on Wild Calling! Xotics Essentials (Dry) $73.00 for 21lbs and only 3 1/2 stars? Wow, that's what I call a rip off. You can pay $33 for 35lbs for Costco's Nature's Domain for that. Zignature is also making 2 new flavors and one is kangaroo as well. Zignature is $65 for 28lbs for the kangaroo flavor. Some other flavors a ten dollars less.

Jodi Palmer on Dr. Tim’s Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) Not sure where you guys are getting this, but Dr. Tim's grain free isn't that much cheaper Merrick. What am I missing here?
September 1, 2015 11:36 am

Debbi on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) It's not about being blind with rage, it's about having experience with 'premium' dog foods getting bought out by a GIANT parent company and experiencing decline in quality and or recalls.
September 1, 2015 11:24 am

Judy on Nature’s Logic (Dry) Thanks!!! and yes I do believe 100% it is systemic yeast. We are now on the 4health beef no potatoes. I know I been all over the place with dog foods but I have another problem a Yorkie that peed like crazy on the Nature's Logic. I guess its the higher protein.
September 1, 2015 11:18 am

Kellie on Nature’s Logic (Dry) My doxie had the same problem on the chicken formula of this food so I switched her to something that was rated low glycemic (something without a really starchy carb like potatoes) and same protein just to try something different. The crusty ear problem and scratching her feet went away in less than a month. Don't let it get too out of control it isn't a good thing. For more info you can check out systemic yeast infections in dogs! Hope any of this helps! After all, we all want the best for our…

Dragonfly on NutriSource Dog Food (Dry) Sunshine,If your dogs have a food allergy, pinning it down can take a lot of time. Allergies can develop to a lot of things, some dogs are even allergic to chicken or beef although that is not real common. My suggestion is to boil up some chicken breast with no seasoning. Feed them that for a few days. If the itching stops then you know that chicken is okay. Then add some cooked rice, see if they itch or not. Then add some egg, etc. See where I am going with it? One food at a time till you…

August 31, 2015 9:02 pm

Jaye001 on Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Hope everything works out. Many people claim that they see improvements in as little as a week or two. If you don't see quick results, stick with it for awhile. It may take a month or two. If that does not work out, try the Kangaroo formula. It is a little pricier, but pretty much guaranteed to work. Best of luck. Jaye

Crazy4dogs on Canidae Grain Free Pure (Dry) Yes, Dori, I absolutely believe it. Let me know what they say!Edit: I do a lot of organic gardening and have noticed more bumble bees than honey bees in my own garden.
August 31, 2015 7:40 pm

Pitlove on Whole Earth Farms Grain Free (Dry) I agree that WEF is good, however I disagree that Fromm is overpriced and doesn't have a good selection. I feed Fromm and I find the price excellent for the quality and I find they have more choices than a lot of other brands if you look into every single one of their lines.I also feel comfortable feeding every single product Fromm makes, which I can't say even for some of the best companies. Needless to say, me and my dog and my wallet are very pleased with it.
August 31, 2015 6:22 pm

Stacy on Whole Earth Farms Grain Free (Dry) I don't see why not, Nvette. I think Fromm is ridiculously priced. I noticed that when I did some research, if remember right, they didn't have much selection either. If you buy any canned food, check the ingredients for carrageenan! It is red seaweed, said to cause cancer & is toxic to humans & animals from what I understand. Other Merrick's have it in them, so just be sure to read. I googled "carrageenan" & went to FoodBabe.com. She & some others made such a fuss, a big company…
August 31, 2015 6:20 pm

Stacy on Whole Earth Farms Grain Free (Dry) You have to do your research on on your recalls & ingredients! One person not buying a product isn't going to change anything. Not all foods are bad just because a company owns another. What is bad is the decisions people make without knowledge!
August 31, 2015 6:11 pm

Stacy on Whole Earth Farms Grain Free (Dry) We live in Southwest Missouri & our 14 year old girl has tumors & her teeth are starting to bother her. Just received some supplements I ordered from Nuvet Plus to dissolve & shrink her tumors & supplement her diet. She eats a very good food called Infinia (has nothing to do w/ Purina....I researched dog food for 4 mo. & all 3 of my dogs love it.) You can find it in feed stores. Call them & they'll send a coupon. We get ours @ a Gordon's. Theirs is between $44.99-$54.99,…

Harley My Harley on Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Thanks Jaye001. I picked up the sweet potato/venison. He really likes it and I'm hoping it will help. I heard that some dogs are allergic to beef so I wanted to stay away from that. Also heard some are allergic to chicken. Sure hope this works and doesn't take that long but will keep trying. I've also used Neosporin to help heal her ears but now am hearing that isn't good... Glad to hear your Schnauzer is doing well. Thanks for your input! I really appreciate it.

Crazy4dogs on NutriSource Dog Food (Dry) Since rice is a grain, and her dogs don't like the grained food, maybe they don't taste that good. My dogs do have grain intolerance.

Denise on Nutro Natural Choice (Dry) My aussie shepherd is 8 months old & has been on nutro lamb & rice for large breed puppies since i got him at 3 months old. He is very healthy, his coat is soft & easy to brush, & his poop factor is a 1 (he only poops once a day & its firm). The one, & only time I have ever had a problem with him was when he got into my cats food. I think that people forget that table foods, a different flavor, eating another pets food or even eating grass will cause stomach problems. If…

Thatcoolguy on NutriSource Dog Food (Dry) Ahhh the good ol' placebo effect. Even extends to dog owners. Placebo by proxy maybe?

DogFoodie on NutriSource Dog Food (Dry) Lamb and rice isn't grain free. Rice is a grain.

luckofirish8 on Canidae Grain Free Pure (Dry) I have a 2-year-old white boxer that has allergies (no surprise there) and often times has very loose stool. We have tried about 6 different foods varying in terms of overall quality with little to no success. The vet has put her on Science Diet Sensitive Stomach and Skin Formula for the time being, but says we can transition her off of it as soon as we wish. I was thinking of giving the Canidae Grain Free Canidae Grain Free Elements a try due to the limited ingredients, price and overall…

Thatcoolguy on NutriSource Dog Food (Dry) Because grains taste good? Why are you buying grain free? Has your dog been diagnosed with an intolerance to grains?

Jaye001 on Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Which Natural Balance formula did you try? Sometimes dogs are allergic to the meats, like lamb, Bison, or even fish as my 7 year-old mini Schnauzer was. Also, it can take anywhere from 2 to 3 months after you have tried a formula that really works before the allergens are completely out of the system and you see results. My dog had suffered with itching, excessive licking, ear infections, and chewing her paws until I put her on Natural Balance Potato and Duck. She was on that formula for several…

14Sunshine on NutriSource Dog Food (Dry) I thought I had picked up a grain free bag, actually bought the Adult Chicken & Rice. On way home Friday I stopped to get another bag, that's when I realized it wasn't grain free. So I picked up Lamb & Rice grain free, opened it yesterday. Why is it, my dogs refuse to eat when I buy grain free? (Well one won't touch it at all) They loved the other bag no problem.

Brigette on Fromm Four Star Nutritionals Grain-Free (Dry) I'm going to give Fromm a try. I have used Merrick Grain Free for a few years and although i know that Purina is sort of involved now, I still would have wanted to try something different because one of my Shih Tzu has yeasty ears. I was told it could be caused by a food allergy. Right now they eat the Merrick grain free Texas beef. If it's a food allergy, should i try something other than a beef recipe? I tried all the Merrick grain free recipes and the beef and buffalo were the ones she…

Dori on Canidae Grain Free Pure (Dry) I attended a Georgia Master Gardeners conference a few years back and that was a huge topic of conversation and there was a consensus that there was truth to it. I'll be attending again this year mid September.

Dori on Acana Regionals Grain-Free (Dry) As we all know, smells that some have no issues with other's cannot tolerate. I can't stand the smell of any perfume and yet ladies where a lot of it. Also men's colognes, can't stand them. I recently tried Orijen Six Fish (need to find a dry food that my husband will feed if I'm not around....I don't trust him to handle raw any more) and the smell didn't bother me in the least. I have a good friend and neighbor who gave me her bag because she felt the smell was going to make her vomit.…

Dori on Canidae Grain Free Pure (Dry) There is definitely no need to be rude. I understand science quite well, thank you very much. GMO's are sprayed heavily with herbicides and all sorts of other insect and disease controlling sprays. I choose not to feed those to my dogs or my family. If you wish to eat them and feed them to your dogs, please feel free. Just as I am allowed to make choices so are you. God Bless the USA and all other countries that allow us choices.
