I am new to this forum. My dog is a medium size shepherd x. She was diagnosed with lymphoma (gastrointestinal, biopsy done and none in intestine) She has lost weight and I am trying to give her high protein, high fat and low or no carbs. The thing is she eats Compliments canned dog food, lamb and rice. Kibbles n’ Bits do not stay down. I am waiting for Orijen Regional Red, but in the meantime, I know I can get this canned food plus Orijen Puppy kibble into her and it will stay down.
My question is I can’t find it listed in the pet food. Does that mean that the Compliments brand is so low that they don’t even talk about it?
Some foods you might consider also are Pinnacle Peak Protein, Solid Gold Barking at the Moon, Brothers Complete Turkey, ZiwiPeak, Merrick grain free and Wysong Epigen. These are all over 40% protein. Epigen is 60% and Ziwipeak is around 12% carbs.
I am in Canada, and those kinds of foods are not familiar.
Hopefullly my husband remembers to pick up the Orijen Regional Red. I have been giving her the canned food “Compliments Lamb and Rice” with Orijen Puppy and she is eating it. I am going to check these foods you have listed and see where I can get them, if I can.
Thanks for your reply.
Here in Ontario we can’t get most of the foods Sandy listed. Acana, Go Fit and Free, Hi Tek grain free are also foods that are higher in protein and fat and lower in carbs. You might be able to find Epigen but you’ll really have to search for it. Is the Compliments you’re talking about the Loblaws/IGA/L&M brand?
Strike12, She is eating Orijen Regional Red, I am quite sure that Compliments is a Sobey’s item (I get it from a small store and they get it from a larger chain store) I am quite sure that Sobey’s falls under Loblaws/IGA/(L&M brand I am unfamiliar with).
She also ate the Acana Lamb and Okenagan Apple. I want to stay with something from my own country. Not that I am prejudiced, I just want to feed her something that I know is made locally and not from China.
Orijen and Acana are both Canadian made and so is Go. I honestly don’t know if either company makes canned food as I’ve never looked and their website is not opening for me right now, but I am assuming they do. Compliments probably is not a high quality food.
That was what I thought about the Compliments brand. I wonder what a high quality wet dog food brand, high in protein and fat, low in carbs, might be?
If you go to the review section on this site there is a list of canned foods from 5 stars right on down. Most of them I have never found here, but you do have a few options. My local Pet Valu carries the Blue Buffalo, Merrick, Nature’s Variety and Wellness. Fromm I think I have seen at our local pet store.
