I’ve scrolled through a lot of the forum discussions looking for help picking out a new food but i didnt get far. Here is our situation –
7 year old, 125 lbs Germany Shepherd-mastiff mix. He has back and joint problems already. He needs to lose about 15lbs. He is very INACTIVE. He also has yeast problems so we can’t do potatoes.
Any suggestions?? Thanks a lot
My suggestion would be to pick out a couple of good/excellent 5 star brands and go to their websites. Call them and talk to their service people, they can provide excellent suggestions based on your pet’s needs.
I was going to suggest Wellness reduced fat,my Pug is doing excellent on it,never seen her more active,but i just looked,it does have potatoes in it 🙁

Go to the vet for a thorough assessment of which type of arthritis he has and make sure there are no other ailments. Blood work and fecal testing, too. Keep him warm and dry, and controlled exercise is key, get him moving on fun walks. You can turn this around, good luck!
