    Many of the ‘Blue’ brands have been linked to kidney failure. I have several friends in various parts of the country who will not use those brands, b/c of losing pets and/or watching all the recalls. I’ve heard there are class action lawsuits against them, but it’s kept quiet. Meep in mind that even if a dog food is made in the USA, there may be ingredients from China. The problem is those ingredients are processed using the same machinery that processes the dog foods made in China. There are no perfect pet foods, but I’d avoid any of the ‘Blue’ brands.

    I like the rotating brands idea!!

    Please ask your vet to do a blood test for EPI (Exocrine Pancreatic Insuffiency). It can cause the diarrhea issues – has your dog lost weight? Also contributes to small intestine bacterial overgrowth. There’s an excellent site called epi4dogs with a wealth of info if you want to know more. EPI can be controlled with the right food (varies from dog to dog) and the addition of pancreatic enzymes to each meal. We recently adopted a GSD with EPI. 🙂 We feed TOTW Pacific Stream and will be adding pumpkin and coconut oil in the near future.
