My wife and I recently adopted an 18 month old Maltese/Pekingese (coat like a Maltese) that was previously on Royal Canin. He has some really smell poops, lots of gas, and very bad tear stains. He also bites his legs quite a bit. I’m trying to find an appropriate food that will help with a lot of these issues, in particular the gastointestinal ones. I’ve read that beet pulp in food can contribute to bad tear stains and the Royal Canin has that as an ingredient. I’m leaning towards Wellness Core small breed formula but I don’t know if maybe I need to have a higher protein content or a higher Omega 3/6 content? Thoughts?zcRileyMember
Your dog has a lot of food intolerances. Switch to Zignature dog food asp and get an allergy test done from Glacier Peak Holistics.crazy4catsMember
Please don’t waste your time and money on any allergy “test” that claims they can diagnose allergies using hair, saliva and a biofeedback machine. They are not reliable. Biofeedback has only been approved to help control body functions such as stress and pain. They cannot diagnose or cure any conditions. Check out this Mayo Clinic link:
