theBCnut on Wild Calling! Rocky Mountain Medley (Dry) I have to agree. I don't mind being told "No" or "We don't do that" but I do expect to get a response of some kind.
December 18, 2014 8:11 am

theBCnut on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) Two of mine did great on it and really loved it. The other one didn't even get to try it, darn allergies.

MJfromGA on Nutro Ultra Gluten Free (Dry) I will have a look, thanks everyone for the suggestions.

Crazy4cats on Nutro Ultra Gluten Free (Dry) Hi MJ- I feed the grain free joint health formula to my two labs frequently. It is also tiny. My labs eat very quickly, but don't have the same problem you have described. I always mix in a topper, however. That probably helps. My sister uses a "bumpy" type bowl for her lab and it works great! Good luck.

Hater & Molly's Mom on Wild Calling! Rocky Mountain Medley (Dry) I emailed Wild Calling 4 days ago. I wanted to see if they had any samples before i went out and bought a bag. I haven't heard back from them yet. That rubs me the wrong way. Even if they don't have them they should respond! No excuse for bad customer service.

Hater & Molly's Mom on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) I have a few samples of it in my cabinet ready to try.

Dog_Obsessed on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) I'm thinking of trying Nature's Logic kibble, it's on my list to try. It's not outrageously priced either.
December 17, 2014 8:57 pm

Sabrina on Diabetic Dog Food Please don't do vet foods unless you read the ingredients and think its ok to feed your dog that. Live free, orijen and nutrisca are grain free foods that have a very low glycemic level. I just helped a customer onto live free and its the 1st time in 2 years her dog Jesse's levels were down. She was eating the purina diabetic food! (one of the most disgusting foods I've seen) Please get educated and don't just listen to me, someone else on here, or your vet. Be informed!
December 17, 2014 8:41 pm

Dori on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) Nature's Logic is a very reputable company. They don't use anything sourced from China. No GMO and no synthetic vitamins or supplements. I trust this company implicit and as I may or may not have stated Nature's Logic is the only kibble in my three dogs rotational feeding schedule. Their sardine oil is superior to most if not all others I have tried. I do supplement my 15 year old Maltese with glucosamin/chondroitin. She has some old age "arthritic" type symptoms and this has helped…

Crazy4cats on Zignature Dog Food (Dry) That's awesome! My dogs seem to do better with a little extra fiber as well.
December 17, 2014 7:47 pm

Bobby dog on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods I understand, I was suggesting these books because they include balanced raw recipes. Some may include recipes that need vitamins or pre-mixes, but not all. Feeding an unbalanced recipe for longer than a few months will also cause health issues, skin and digestive issues being a few examples. Ensuring his raw diet is balanced is something to explore as well.
December 17, 2014 7:19 pm

Jose N-Diana Saffiro on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) Like I mentioned in a previous response, I didn't think I'd get replies this fast and had just ordered the food after posting my first question, so I am feeding it to them since I think it's better than the 3.5 star dog food I've been getting from Foster & Smith. I plan to look at the suggestions you and Dori gave and will be ordering differently next time. Thank you so much for the website too. It came up on a google search too and I was wondering about them. Again, THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!…
December 17, 2014 7:16 pm

Lynda Le on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods To be honest from our research we don't believe in adding additional mixes into his raw food if we have all the ingredients he needs. We are open to supplements that may help target allergies.
December 17, 2014 7:11 pm

Jose N-Diana Saffiro on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) Thank you so much Bryan for your suggestions. I would stay away from the red meats too! LOL! :)
December 17, 2014 7:10 pm

Jose N-Diana Saffiro on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) My dog is actually a gulper… so I will keep away from the chicken bones. Nature's Logic Sardine Oil doesn't seem too bad as far as price goes. I'm spending way more on the FlexPet supplement. So as far as you know this oil comes from a reputable source? Also, if I'm giving her that do you think that will be sufficient for her joints? A while back the doctor told me she needs knee surgery, but then this is the same doctor that never made recommendations for weight loss. I'm taking her to a…

Bobby dog on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods These books are often recommended by regular DFA posters who feed raw or make their own meals, "Unlocking the Canine Ancestral Diet" by Steve Brown, "Real Food for Healthy Dogs and Cats" by Dr. Karen Becker, and "Raw and Natural Nutrition for Dogs: The Definitive Guide to Homemade Meals" by Dr. Lew Olson.

TraceyMush on Natural Balance Vegetarian (Dry) Dogs are not carnivores. They are omnivores.
December 17, 2014 6:49 pm

Lynda Le on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods We feed based on the prey model and we make sure that he gets everything he needs to be a complete diet. Although we do give him fruits and some veggies as treats. This is the first time we are considering "supplements" since we are at a loss to his recurring staph infection.
December 17, 2014 6:42 pm

Bobby dog on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Do you use a vitamin pre-mix or do you supplement another way to be sure it's a balanced diet?
December 17, 2014 6:01 pm

Lynda Le on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Home prepared but we may try the commercial one after we finish with this batch to see if a "rare" protein (venison or bison) will help.
December 17, 2014 5:57 pm

Bobby dog on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods One more question. You are feeding raw, is it commercial or home prepared?
December 17, 2014 5:49 pm

Jessica on Pure Vita Dog Food (Dry) We decided to try this food after we couldn't get to the pet store that carried Zignature and picked this up at the store very close to is. It seemed like just what our Beagle needed with the high fiber. Her behavior suddenly changed to the naughty Beagle she used to be: stealing our son's food, eating cat litter, breaking into to cabinets to eat tea bags(!) which she never bothered even when she was on Nutrish, and breaking into the garbage can. After almost two small bags of the food, we…
December 17, 2014 5:19 pm

Jessica on Zignature Dog Food (Dry) We tried this after getting a sample at a pet food. Our non-picky Beagle chowed down right away. She needs fiber (our vet was constantly telling us to add pumpkin to her food) so the high fiber is great. Her itching problems went away as well.
December 17, 2014 5:14 pm

Lynda Le on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods I agree, Sadly I just found out two weeks ago that probiotics are good for him when taking antibiotics. I also wish I knew that a couple years ago.

Cheryl, Pepper & Millie-Belle on Best 5-Star Dry Puppy Foods I posted this question in Editors' choice and realized this section may be better suited for my questions. i have a 5 month old mini schnauzer female that I have been feeding 3x per day. This little girl can eat 24/7. It has been a long time since a puppy has been in my family and I was wondering will her appetite slow down soon and after 6 months 1. shouldn't I feed her 2x a day & 2. Can i transition her to an "Adult" food? I should mention I rotate her on Orijen Puppy, Horizion legacy…

aquariangt on Nutro Ultra Gluten Free (Dry) try a kyjen slo bowl for gulping. they work wonders
December 17, 2014 1:50 pm

LabsRawesome on Nutro Ultra Gluten Free (Dry) Hi MJ, I'm glad your dog likes it. Sorry I can't help with the gulping food problem, none of my dogs eat like that. I've used the 3 grain free varieties of Victor, and Active Dog And Puppy. All 4 have the same small kibble. I think all their kibble is that same size.
December 17, 2014 12:53 pm

Lee Beardsmore on Best 4-Star Dry Puppy Foods Hi please could you help?? I have a 4 month old tea cup Yorkshire Terrier. She won't eat Iams dry puppy food but wants my other dogs food(+11yr old medium size Senior over 7yrs Iams food) Is this ok?? Or can you suggest an alternative??

Angeliette Hernandez on Dog Food Allergies I have the same issues with my Catahoula..even with the prescribed medicated food...IS THE CHICKEN TURKEY DUCK . she was allergic to CHICKEN and here I am giving her boiled chicken breast until she ended in the hospital. MOST OF THE ALLERGIES ARE RELATED TO the SOURCE of PROTEIN.. most treats cookies all have CHICKEN.. change him to SALMON Blue Buffalo LIMITED ingridients NO GRAIN.
December 17, 2014 12:34 pm

Sandra Kertz on Perfect Balance Grain Free (Dry) I'm about half way through my first bag I ordered from their website on Cyber Monday and couldn't be happier. When you sign up for auto-ship, it's cheaper than Taste of the Wild. I called and talked to one of the owners because I though the price was too cheap. They told me they don't use distributors or middle men, so it keeps the price lower. I found this coupon code on their blog: "Non-China" but i'm not sure how long it's good. It knocked 20% off my order though.

Cheryl, Pepper & Millie-Belle on Orijen Freeze Dried (Freeze-Dried) I have a question about the freeze dried Tundra, i too agree that it is difficult to rehydrate. would 1 patty be considered too high in fat four a 5 month old mini schnauzer? She gobbles it up, would Stella & Chewy's or Sojos be abetter option for her? Thank you
December 17, 2014 10:19 am

Bobby dog on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Probiotics should help him since antibiotics also kill good bacteria. I was missing this info when I was giving antibiotics to my dog. I believe if I would have given him probiotics when I first started treating him for his skin issues he would have healed faster. It's good you are open to second opinions! If you do find a Holistic Vet on the AHVMA site you could always call first to discuss your dog to see if you feel they could help.

Ricky Endres on Muenster Natural Dog Food (Dry) We've been using Muenster Natural Grain Free for about 5 months now, and our dog loves it! She had been eating Blue Buffalo before, but just randomly went on a hunger strike and refused to eat any more of it. So far, the switch to Muenster Natural has gone way better than we could have expected. Our dog seems to really love the food. A few other things we've noticed is that her eating pattern is very consistent now, where with Blue Buffalo, it really wasn't. Her poop is much more consistent and…

December 17, 2014 3:42 am

Hater & Molly's Mom on Everpet Dog Food (Dry) I would never feed a puppy Puppy Chow knowing what i do know. IMO it's one of the worse foods out there.
December 17, 2014 3:37 am

JeremyScottRenolds on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Frozen Diets (Raw Frozen) Perhaps you can get a recommendation on food and supplements from this amazing holistic vet. His products are very pure and this guy is up there with Dr. Karen Becker imo.Check out his liver cleanse which he believes is important for all dogs. http://peterdobias.com/collections/liver-support

Judith Williams on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Frozen Diets (Raw Frozen) I found out he does not have Cushing's. High enzymes and small liver. His vet thinks it is genetic.
December 17, 2014 2:20 am

Judith Williams on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Frozen Diets (Raw Frozen) I can make my own raw diet for the dogs, and just add milk thistle and enzymes and anything else that may help him, and I will do that if need be. I would love a holistic vet, if only they weren't so expensive. We pay a lot for our dogs' health care now, just for the preventive maintenance. I just don't have a lot of money to play with and he needs help now. Giving more than just an OK food source is my last gift to him, and I will do it on my own if necessary. I know that the prescribed food…

Lynda Le on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Thanks for the great info! When I was reading the article I must have overlooked the part about it only treating yeast infection. I thought it was for most allergy symptoms. Although when my dog was a pup he had a yeast infection in his ears that was treated. I notice sometimes it does come back (not as bad as before). I looked online and it's potentially red yeast since the base of his nails also turn a reddish-brown color. I also read that it's a secondary symptom due to allergies. I assumed…

aimee on Dog Food for Specific Health Problems Hi Julie, Ask your vet what sodium level would be appropriate for your dog. My little guy has leaky valves but his heart function isn't compromised and his cardiologist said he didn't need a sodium restricted diet per say just that I shouldn't change sodium levels in his food suddenly. I found this list from Tufts... maybe you can find something on the list that meets yours and your dogs needs. http://vet.tufts.edu/heartsmart/diet/reduced_sodium_diet.html
December 17, 2014 12:04 am

Dog_Obsessed on Farmina N&D Ancestral Grain (Dry) There is an herbal supplement called Perfect Form by The Honest Kitchen. I have used it with success with minor stomach issues and transitions, and I have heard people have used it with success for major stomach issues. Here it is: http://www.thehonestkitchen.com/treats-supplements/supplements/perfect-form
December 16, 2014 11:50 pm

Julie E on Farmina N&D Ancestral Grain (Dry) Well, Mercy is back to her loose stools. She just finished the first 26 lb bag and the last couple weeks have been the loose stools again. Vet has her starting flagyl, amoxicillin, and something else to help calm her stomach. We are going to try the Ancestral Grain Cod flavor now to see if maybe she has an intolerance to chicken. Fingers crossed.
December 16, 2014 11:40 pm

Julie F on Dog Food for Specific Health Problems Our dog was just diagnosed with heart disease and needs a lower sodium diet. Does anyone know of a low sodium food other than the prescription diets that have very poor ingredients. Thanks!!

December 16, 2014 10:43 pm

theBCnut on Everpet Dog Food (Dry) If there's nothing better in the world than Purina Puppy Chow, I wonder why Purina felt the need to make Pro Plan and Purina ONE. I would guess that even Purina thinks that Puppy Chow could easily be improved on.
December 16, 2014 10:41 pm

Dar on By Nature 95% Varieties (Canned) Has anyone noticed the change in canned dog food 95% Beef? It has a very different texture that is smooth and creamy, much lighter in color, and has pieces of some type of membrane in it. I have emailed the company with no response.
December 16, 2014 9:37 pm

Dog_Obsessed on Everpet Dog Food (Dry) A dog may do well on a food in the short term, but many foods that have ingredients such as corn and anonymous meat in them can cause serious problems in the long term. You are entitled to your opinion, but I do not consider Puppy Chow a good food.
December 16, 2014 9:17 pm

T.S. on Simply Nourish Dog Food (Dry) Here are the pictures I took of my problem. This is the second time it's happened to me, and these pictures were taken just minutes after opening the bag. You've been lucky to not have this issue so far!

Dog_Obsessed on Hill’s Prescription Diet I/D Canine (Canned) The Hills i/d isn't horrible compared to many prescription products, and so it should be fine to feed that mixed with quality kibble for a while. I wouldn't keep her on it forever, but you could wait until she is more stable and until you can find a quality canned product she can tolerate.
December 16, 2014 9:11 pm

JDog on How to Determine Your Dog’s Ideal Weight thank you! That's a great idea. We got the box (GIANT box) of milkbones before we even adopted him because they were on sale at Petco. I will look into getting him some of those meat treats you suggested, and i'm sure he will be super happy about that, anyway. thanks again.
December 16, 2014 4:56 pm

Ann Shaver on Hill’s Prescription Diet I/D Canine (Canned) Thanks for the information. Fortunately she is tolerating and enjoys the Hills i/d...giving me time to locate what will hopefully be a successful transition. "Susan" posted continuing on the i/d Restore and mixing it with a high grade kibble.

Neoma Manion on Everpet Dog Food (Dry) I'm sure most people want the very best for their pets. You would think that there would be stricter guidelines for pet food. I wasn't aware of the bad pet foods out there until I bought some cheap horse food and almost lost my 31 year old Arabian angel. I sat with her in the barn 3 nights but she was close to dying. Now I inspect and check all the food and hay that I feed my horses. They have very fragile digestive systems unlike cows that have two stomachs.

December 16, 2014 3:49 pm

Neoma Manion on Everpet Dog Food (Dry) My neighbor lady had me pet sit with her dogs and she left a new bag of Everpet for them, first of all I hate that food, and second of all I opened the new bag she had just brought home and it was full of big chunks of stuck together molded dog food. Mold is lethal to dogs, so I brought my own food over to feed them and left her a note to never feed her dog that stuff again.
December 16, 2014 3:47 pm

Neoma Manion on Everpet Dog Food (Dry) Years ago I started all my pets with an old fashioned vet and he said they should be fed a mix of dry and canned food and I have always chose a good brand of both and they are beautiful and healthy.
December 16, 2014 3:40 pm

Neoma Manion on Everpet Dog Food (Dry) I agree with you. Many people around here say I would be rich if it weren't for my 4 horses, 6 dogs, 5 cats, 1 turtle and two birds. BUT I am rich because of them. Like you I have a hybrid wolf that a man left for me to pet sit with and never picked up, she is absolutely the sweetest, smartest dog I have ever seen. Unknown to me she was expecting babies and the pictures below show some of them. SHE HAD TEN. None of the babies look like her and she is hybrid wolf and German shepherd and just…

Mary-Ann Kurucz on Dr. Karen Becker: How to Choose a Good Dog Food (Part 2) Thank you :) I have kept a pretty good list of things she has tried. We just started the kelp and brewers yeast about 6 weeks ago. She has been on a very limited diet with each type of food but I will try to keep it even more limited. The vet suggested to cut out all fruit and veggies which I did but then she started to really lose weight. I give her a raw food diet which is just turkey and bone, then I puree kale, swish chard and a few other greens. I have kept the list of foods that are not…

Bobby dog on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods I have that article from WDJ bookmarked; it’s about malassezia pachydermatis yeast. I might have read every article out there on yeast overgrowth when I was searching for answers to help my dog. In this article they also discuss “Seacure.” I have never used it, but a few DFA posters have. They recommended using it for as long as needed then stop when the issue is resolved and moving onto other supplements if needed: http://www.seacure-protein.com/products/seacure_for_pets.html Was your dog…
December 16, 2014 3:08 pm

theBCnut on Dr. Karen Becker: How to Choose a Good Dog Food (Part 2) She could be allergic to brewers yeast or kelp. Have you kept ingredient lists on foods you have tried? If not, try to remember what you have tried and gather those lists. They shouldn't be hard to find on the internet. Compare lists and look for ingredients that they have in common. It's not just meats and grains that you have to worry about, it's anything that has protein in it. As an example, my dog reacts to chicken, eggs, flax, tomato, all grains, and now I'm retesting him for fish…

Mary-Ann Kurucz on Dr. Karen Becker: How to Choose a Good Dog Food (Part 2) Hi, I have a 7 yr old Jack Russell. She has had huge skin issues for the last 2 1/2 yrs. We have spent a ton of money on vet bills trying to figure out the skin issues. She's been on predizone, anitbiotics, benadryl, and other medications. She was on a hypo allergenic dry dog food. None of this stuff helped. We tried various dog foods suggested to us which were grain free, still no relief. We have had her on a raw dog food diet. First she was on chicken but the vet suggested we try something…

Heidi on Pure Balance Dog Food (Dry) Bought the Salmon no grain one, and when I opened it, the smell of fish almost knocked me over. Our cats came running in thinking "Mom has fish for us", and this morning I gave our dog a small amount to start switching him over, and he doesn't like it one bit. =(

Susan on Hill’s Prescription Diet I/D Canine (Canned) The new Hills i/d low fat GI Restore does not contain chicken or chicken fat, people are confusing the old Hills i/d gastro with the new i/d low fat GI Restore that has no chicken & fat is only 8.5%..
December 16, 2014 1:37 am

Susan on Hill’s Prescription Diet I/D Canine (Canned) Hi Ann, if he's on the Hills i/d low fat GI Restore the ingredients are better then the Hills i/d Gastro, I dont see a problem as Hills is a balanced diet, you could do what I do & have different foods for lunch & Dinner I do kibble for lunch & Dinnner & wet for breakfast that way he's getting a variety of different foods..
December 16, 2014 1:29 am

Susan on Hill’s Prescription Diet I/D Canine (Canned) I think this is Hills i/d Gastro wet the fat is 14.3% fat.... The new Hills i/d low fat GI Restore wet has just 8.5% fat & no chicken or chicken fat, the i/d low fat GI Restore has purple writing, the i/d gastro has Magenta pink writing,also there's i/d stews the fat is 14.9%....... Hills should of named their new i/d low fat GI Restore something else, like G/I as a lot of people are confusing the 2 i/d foods....

Lynda Le on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods I hope your dog gets better. I just wanted to say your pup looks exactly like my guy! I'm not sure what the rest of his body looks like but my dog is all white with the same looking face as yours. Besides that can you try medicated baths? I've heard great things about Douxo but never tried since I'm on Trizchlor. You can also try switching to raw. My dog never tolerated commercial kibble even if it was high quality. We had him since he was a puppy and kibble never sat well in his tummy.…

Lynda Le on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Thanks! After Googling probiotics there are so many options that it's overwhelming. I'll prob start a trial of each highly recommended brand to see which works best (if any). Let me know if that's not recommended though. Since you have had success with your I will look into that. I was also on the whole dog journal but a different blog. Have you read this one? It gives great suggestions but I'm not sure if it applies to me.…

Brisbane's Bark Blog rates puzzles toys and has some good suggestions: http://www.brisbanesbarkblog.com The funny thing is that I started writing this post about 15 minutes ago, and then when I went to grab the link I began to read the blog and forgot that I was posting this. Warning: This blog may be extremely addicting. :D

dogist on Diabetic Dog Food HI eileen, You don't understand the first thing about what it feels like to have a blood sugar of 50, or a blood sugar of 500. You can only guess what it is your dog is going through. I live it. I have been fighting diabetes.for 30 years now. I know what it feels like to have wide blood sugar swings, and complications. I know what it's like to take the well-meaning advice of some Doctor or organization that thinks high carb, low quality, or species inappropriate diets are OK for…

myname on Simply Nourish Dog Food (Dry) Yeah that's been goin on for a while now. Don't know how much I can say bc I don't know how much is insider info but there's a chance that a sell (depending on who to) could actually improve things in the long run. Either way I'm done school so idc

myname on Simply Nourish Dog Food (Dry) Mmhmm yeah I know at least they advertised that on the bag though... but does the baking soda explain the sulfur smell? It's really bad and I feel like it can't be good for the pets either esp ones w/sensitive resp tracts

Its my understanding that carefresh was just bought out, and hence the change to the product.
