Hi Susan, I am going to be ordering Iams pro health soon and transition her to that and hope that will works. It has similar ingredients. Thank you for your advice!
my dog is 48 lbs. when she was on royal canin, her poops were smaller and firmer. i don’t want to go back to that food, though, because she doesn’t seem to need it, and it was very expensive. i’d put her back on it in a second, of course, if her bladder issues return. thank you for your suggestions. i’ll look through them.
thanks for your input c4c. i appreciate your sharing this information. i guess i’ll just monitor my dog’s health and hope for the best. she seems healthy. only issue i’ve had with her recently is soft poop (hard to pick up and sticking to the grass), which is why i changed foods to up her fiber to see if that would help. currently, i’m feeding my dog american journey salmon and rice. before that was grain free whole earth farms turkey and chicken.
how would we know what grade corn is in the food?
crazy4cats, what do you feed your dogs? i’m torn on this issue; i have been feeding my dog food for a while that contains peas, and i’m worried. i’m also not so sure corn is as bad as it is made out to be, so i’m considering IAMS pro health possibly, but exploring other options, as well.
thank you all. my dog does like carrots. i’ll try freezing them and start trying to brush her teeth more often.
someone on this forum told me to try upping fiber in my dog’s diet. my dog was having the same issue-she wasn’t having diarrhea. Her poop had shape to it, but it was too soft, would stick to the grass and it was difficult to pick up. i switched to a food with 6% fiber. she has been eating american journey salmon and brown rice. she’s only been on it for a month or less. her poop seems to be firm now most of the time. of course, now i’m wondering if i chose the right thing, because one of the main ingredients is peas, and i’m worried about what peas can do, as I’ve been reading there is a possible connection between peas in the diet and heart issue. i’m upset that there are so many controversial ingredients and no one can agree on what a good food is. it makes you wonder what is really good for our dogs??
I’m glad she is doing better and it always makes me happy to hear about rescued dogs! mine is, too. thank you for sharing your experience. I may have to find something with similar ingredients to zignature, because that price is a bit high for me. i’ll look at nutri source, as well. I will be doing more research 🙂 thanks again!
Hi Kathy, fiber is 4.5%. i was thinking maybe upping the fiber would help. Did you find your dog pooped more often per day with more fiber? I once fed my dog american journey grain free salmon and sweet potato which has 5%, and she was pooping 3-4 times per day. only reason that concerns me is because i worry she is having to hold it all day while i’m at work. however, in the past, she never had an accident in the house while on that food. i heard more frequent pooping might have been from the chick peas, though. i might look for something higher in fiber without chick peas, though. I will look into this. Thank you!
