Any recommendations for a grain free wet food for my female boxer. She has a very sensitive stomach.September 28, 2016 at 7:37 pm #90374 Report AbuseJane EMember
Have you discovered what things she is sensitive to? Is it GI upsets? Do you feed twice a day? Is she a picky eater ,is that why you are looking for a wet food?September 28, 2016 at 7:45 pm #90375 Report Abuse
Haven’t figured it out at all. She was put on an antibiotic and ever since it has screwed up her stomach. The holistic vet she goes to does not recommend dry food bc she said the protein turns to sugar once they dry it out. Plus dry food is very hard on a dogs system–she said its like humans only eating crackers. Our dog was getting major yeast infections on dry so ever since we switched she hasn’t had one. We feed her 2-3 times a day with wet food and rice. Just trying to find a good grain free wet food. Thanks for the reply:)September 28, 2016 at 8:54 pm #90377 Report AbuseJane EMember
Honest Kitchen has some nice grain free formulas. If I were you and you are looking for a grain I would use oatmeal instead of rice. It just seems to be better tolerated. Also turkey is tolerated well as a rule by Boxers. Have ups considered cooking ? I make a few crockpots up at a time and then portion it out into individual servings and freeze it…September 28, 2016 at 8:55 pm #90378 Report AbusezcRileyMember
Lotus canned formulas in beef shank or pork shoulder. However, you need to feed a lot of wet to match the nutritional value in dry food. And your dog needs fiber. I don’t think your vet drinks soup 24/7, right?September 29, 2016 at 6:18 pm #90404 Report AbuseInkedMarieMember
I second the Honest Kitchen.September 29, 2016 at 6:26 pm #90407 Report Abuse
Thank you so much for the info…love the ideas!
Yeah we feed her a certain amount of ounces to make up for the dry and add certain supplements and fatty acids. She just wants her to get more protein rather than sugar bc our dog doesn’t do well with the dry–she gets bad yeast rashes.
