My long haired standard dachsie has a ph of 8 recently and my vet suggested switching to royal canin. He is on Acana ranchland Canadian. I don’t know what food to switch to, and don’t like what I’ve read about RC food. Any thoughts? Switch to Acana grasslands? Lower protein?
Whatever you decide to feed him, add water to the meals, don’t free feed.
I would go along with the prescription food for a few months, at least until the dog is stable. Don’t bother testing ph every day, it takes a few weeks for a change to show up, that’s what the vet told me. Instead, I would have it checked at the vet’s office every 2 or 3 months.
