Pugsmomsandy- Thanks for your suggestions. I had been doing food homework for the last hour or so and it definitely seems like Wilderness and Core are both excellent bets. I’m not familiar with Honest Kitchen Zeal and don’t believe it’s sold anywhere near me.April 24, 2013 at 2:20 pm in reply to: High quality food that will help my dog lose weight and not poop so much? #16638 Report Abuse
Aaand I was mistaken, Wellness hasn’t had any recalls this year. I think I got it mixed up with Innova.April 24, 2013 at 2:06 pm in reply to: High quality food that will help my dog lose weight and not poop so much? #16636 Report Abuse
Dogspot- That’s not the case at all. The only time she gets treats is when we’re training on walks, and they’re small ‘My Little Wolf’ treats that are less than 3 calories a piece, which are then torn in to smaller pieces. And there’s no way I’m going near Science Diet, the quality is crap! It’s ridiculous how much they charge for lower quality food. She only eats when she’s hungry, and it’s in small amounts. We feed her less than what her activity level suggests and she still has food left in her bowl.
Pugmomsandy- I’ve been looking at foods like Wilderness because it has such a high protein content which I know is so important for weight loss. However, I know that some of those have such high calorie content and Wellness seems to be flirting with a lot of food recalls. I’m trying to contact some customer service people of different brands and get some more insight.
NectarMom- That’s exactly what I’m planning on doing. I looked at the review again and saw Science Diet just got 2.5 stars. My dog could probably just eat something like Alpo and still be act as lively and still look healthy (she has an iron stomach and is so hardy), but there’s no way I’m going to settle for something lower.April 22, 2013 at 10:08 pm in reply to: High quality food that will help my dog lose weight and not poop so much? #16550 Report Abuse
Thank you for replying so quickly! I will definitely look in to those. I’m not so concerned about grain free. I know it’s better for dogs to go without, but she flourishes regardless. We had her on Royal Canin Medium Adult when we first got her so I know she’s not allergic either.
