i have 4 year old german shepherd
My vet says feed her no grain – no potato dog food
So I’m looking around for the best of the best for her
I was feeding tractor supply 4health dog food no grains
But she also can not have meat I was told
If you have any ideas please let me know !
Thank you so much
I’ve never delt with this issue before so I appreciate your help
What kind of fistulas? Are they related to allergies? Blocked anal glands?
My dog with allergies does well on Nutrisca (fish), assuming your dog can have fish, I know it contains no potato or grains. Wysong has a vegetarian blend.
I may start getting my Nutrisca from chewy.com because the prices are better.
I like Wysong and consider it to be a quality food and still feed it to my senior dog. However I noticed my dogs seemed to be drinking more water, so I worried that maybe it’s high in sodium? If that’s a concern I think someone at their company could answer your questions.
PS: Consider consulting a homeopathic vet, they may have some treatment ideas different from the traditional vets http://www.vitalanimal.com Some of them do phone consults, if there isn’t one located near you.
No not related to allergies at all according to the veterinarian
Also no blocked glands he checked for that
At first that’s what he thought.
Yes chewy is a great online store
To get dog food
I don’t see why she can’t have fish I’ll look in to that
It also has to be A single source of protein only dog food
But thank you Sooo much for your help LM
I certainly do appreciate it !
Forgot to mention to you
I’m feeding her Acana duck and pear
But for some reason she does not care for it..
Have you considered a homemade diet http://www.homeovet.net/dynamic/php/downloads/dog-c8470f2c75dbe4b683205c3919ee2310/dog_diet_complete.pdf
I have never tried Acana, can she have a little bit of plain homemade chicken broth poured on the dry? I have heard good things about Acana, but some of these foods are expensive. I can’t get beyond the price tag.
Yes as a matter of fact I have thought of that
And may just do that
But I think I’ll try that nutrisca you mentioned
That looks pretty good
Nutrisca had a recall recently, salmonella. None of the dry fish foods were involved, it had something to do with the chicken.
This didn’t bother me and I will continue to buy their product, but I thought I should mention it.
Yes I read that
Thank you LM
I think I’ll give it a try (fish)
Ooo yea by the way your right Acana is like 72.00 a bag right now
It’s a lot of money
Not that she is not worth it
I know what you mean, I had to take one of my dogs to a specialist/dermatologist $$ for her allergies.
But it was totally worth it, the maintenance isn’t that bad at all. If you find something that works….
I Want to thank you for your help
I did not expect such a quick response
