    Thank you all for your posts. I am just learning about yeast in dogs.. I have an older rescue that has been doing so much better on grain free but I didn’t realize that her ears were so bad, even though her coat had cleared up. What do you suggest for the ears as far as treatment? I have been reading about vinegar for them as well. Any suggestions on any other foods would be appreciated. Thanks!

    The kibbles for the 4 Health are about 1/4 of an inch. I think they are pretty tiny 🙂

    in reply to: Good food and budgets #19487 Report Abuse

    They have a small bites 4 Health but the kibbles aren’t very big on the regular. I felt of them in the bag before it bought it and I could tell what size, so you may want to check it out 🙂 They may not be small enough for your babies though, but I have a special needs puppy mill rescue that must have smaller bites and he does fine with it. But, he can eat the Simply Nourish ones too (he’s a shih). They have a good canned food too. I have been using Nature’s Variety Instinct canned food for one with Cushings and she has done well on it too. You know what is a 5 star food and my dogs LOVE it? It’s PetFresh Select in the refrigerated section in the pet aisle at Walmart. Petco also carries two kinds of it. You can look it up on here: PetFresh at Walmart and Deli-Fresh and Vital Fresh (I think is the names of theirs) at Petco and I think the puppy formula would be great for your mama 🙂

    That is awesome, Mom2cavs! I have been feeding mine the chicken and brown rice and they love it! Who is the NB merger with Del Monte? The only 4 star or above food that I have found that is cheaper, is the Costco brand, Kirkland. It is $29.99. But my dogs weren’t crazy about it and a friend had the same problem. I LOVE the Petsmart’s brand, Simply Nourish and my dogs are crazy about it. They’ve just come out with a Grain Free (not rated on here yet) but I noticed that the puppy food had a 5 star rating. I have coupons for $5 off a bag if you want to email me your addy to try it. Its non sale price is $47 a bag but some is $41.99 plus I have the coupon that makes it $38 🙂 [email protected]. Thanks for all of your help!

    Thank you so much! I haven’t heard of Pioneer before you guys, so I have another one to look into! I appreciate it 🙂

    Thank you all so much. I haven’t done hardly any pet food shopping online, so that helps a bunch! I also found Tractor Supply’s 4health (4 stars) for $32 for a 35 lb bag and even the holistic vet says that’s a good food. The Simply Nourish is $44 with a coupon. I look forward to researching online. What you have already given me, I have seen a few offers for first time buyers too 🙂 Thanks!

    Thank you but if you read the prior posts, that has nothing to do with my question, other than I was wondering where the aforementioned foods could be purchased. Also, I was asking for advice on food, not opinions 🙂

    in reply to: Good food and budgets #17209 Report Abuse

    Yall are awesome! Thank you 🙂 Where do you find these foods? I usually shop Petsmart.. I have found a very reasonable one that is 3 stars, Lassie Natural Way.. the puppy was rated 4 but now all down to 3.. I would still like to look at these others and will google. I have heard (and seen by ratings) that Costco’s is very good food too.. but I”m not currently amember.. Thank you again!

    THANK YOU, Patty 🙂

    in reply to: Canine Cushings Disease diet #16951 Report Abuse

    I have one with Cushings (recent rescue, so I am learning about this).. She was 19.4 lbs and is a long haired chihuahua (she could hardly walk) . We tried the homeopathic meds first but her case is advanced so she is on Vetoryl now and has actually lost quite a bit of weight. Someone told me about Nature’s Variety Instinct Chicken Grain Free canned and she has done great on it. The vet recommended Grandma Lucy’s Chicken (freeze dried) but I can’t get her to eat it. The vet told me that the canned is better because it’s not as dehydrating as the dry.

    Mom2Cavs, what is the Sportmix food? I haven’t heard of this brand before. Thank you

    in reply to: Good food and budgets #16947 Report Abuse

    Thank you both so much!!! I love Nutrisource and I am using Simply Nourish right now.. honestly, they are almost too much for my budget though, I have to buy 3 to 4 bags a month but there’s some I haven’t tried.. THANK YOU 🙂
