Try freeze dried food. My picky dog loves Stella & Chewy.
If you’re feeding 1/4 morning, 1/4 at night, shouldn’t you be done with the can in 2 days?
Calculate based on the calories you are currently feeding your dog.
On the bag and on their website will list the calories per patty.
Because it’s manufactured by Diamond.
I just tried the wizard, looks like it’s not giving accurate search results. I tried to search for food without potatoes for my dog, but it gave a list of food with potatoes.
I remember someone here made a dog food wizard. You could try that. Just make sure to double check the ingredients on the label.
These are some of the ones I can think of.

That should be interesting! Would you be allowed to ask questions? Like why they use corn in their products, etc.
Although milk duds are milk chocolate, they are not as toxic as dark chocolate. I’d take her to the vet anyways. Do you have any emergency vet you can take her to?
Are you only looking for dry food? Have you consider feeding just canned or freeze dried?September 6, 2014 at 12:03 pm in reply to: Please Recommend a Small Kibble with Absolutely No Corn #51320 Report Abuse
Wysong Epigen 90. It’s corn free, starch free. The kibbles are tiny.
Well, I’m not going to argue with you, but I think you should read the reviews here:
Have you tried adding cooked ground meat to his food?
I never follow the feeding guidelines on the bag. I always calculate how much to feed by calories.
So sorry I forgot to type it up for you! Kinda got distracted.
Cyndi, thanks for posting the guidelines.
The chart is a recommendation for how much you feed your dog after you have mixed SSLL according to instructions.
So you’ll mix 1lbs of meat with 2 tbsp of SSLL (or 4tbsp for puppies). Then after all mixed together, you measure the amount to feed. Add recommended oil before feeding.
Akari, I only have one dog. Not sure how much I’m spending though, since I rotate with other premixes. For me, this might be more expensive than other mix because it uses more meat ratio to the mix. For other brands like Grandma Lucy and THK, the meat ratio is 1:1 or 2:1. I feed organic meat from Wholefoods, so more meat means more expensive per meal.
I don’t have answer for most of your questions, but I know there’s an instruction for the SSLL on their website. It’s just very hard to find.
For the feeding guidelines, you’ll have to look at the chart on the package. I can type it up for you in a bit.
I was going to order it but decided not to after reading about the side effects of marjoram, one of the ingredients in the food.July 18, 2014 at 12:54 pm in reply to: best food to make wire haired dog coat soft as possible #47160 Report Abuse

Cats will die without meat.
Dogs may survive, but they will not thrive.
I usually cook a large batch that will last 2 weeks. Portion into meal size, and freeze. Thaw overnight for each meal.
It doesn’t take that much time.
I believe food is a factor in ear problem. Some dogs are allergic to chicken. Does your dog have other issues that might indicate allergies?
What are you currently feeding?
Best food for dogs with ear problems are grain-free and starch-free.
Avoid food with grains, potatoes, and sweet potatoes.
Allergies can also cause ear issues. Try to figure out which food your dog reacts to.
Have you consider cooking for your dog?
I have a very picky eater when it comes to kibbles.
Ever since I started cooking for him, he hasn’t refuse any meals.
If you go to their site and chose New Zealand as your location to shop online, you can see the ingredients for frozen food and analysis.
I would love to see the reviews for this product too. I used to feed them.
I found more info here. There are some email address and phone number you can contact. Also a place where you can send the treat for testing.
I am very sorry for your loss.
Did you have the treat tested?
The only Dogswell recall I saw was a year ago.
Have you thought about making homemade food? You can better control the ingredients.
I usually make a batch that last 2 – 3 weeks. I portion into meal size and freeze them. It doesn’t take too much time to prepare.
It’s a 3.5 star food. I doubt it would make it to the Editor’s Choice list.
Canned food is better than kibble. Why add kibble to your dog food if he’s already eating canned.
This page has a ranking of the types of food, from best to worst.
USA Dog Treats, Thank you for taking time to write a very long informative post. It is very helpful.
InkedMarie, great idea! Thanks!
Thanks for the comments about the sanding block. I think I’ll give it a try. I wasn’t planning to train him to dig, just wanted to use it like a nail file.
Sorry to hi-jack. Very interesting topic.
Will a sanding block work? My dog hates the nail clipper, and I’m afraid to use dremel on him. He has long hair and I’m afraid the hair would get caught in the tool.
This is what I’m thinking of using.
Did your dog like the home cooked food? If he did, you could do without kibbles. Home cooked is healthier for him anyways. Just make sure the food you give him is balanced.
My dog is also a picky eater when it comes to kibbles. Now I’m cooking for him and using a premix. I’m using The Honest Kitchen Preference and add my own meat. There are many premixes you can try, or look up dog food recipe at dogaware.com. I’ve heard some dogs don’t like THK Preference, but my dog has been doing really well on it. He has been on this food for about 3 months and hasn’t turn his nose up at any meal.
I’ve been feeding THK Preference with ground meat. I rotate the proteins between bison, beef and chicken. Gizmo also gets raw chicken neck for teeth cleaning about 3 times a week. I add ground flax seed and coconut oil to his food. He’s been on this diet since January, and this seems to be working best for him.
Before this I’ve tried just about anything. High end kibbles, freeze dried, canned, premade raw, PMR. He’s a picky dog and sometimes would refuse to eat. THK is the only food that he hasn’t turned his nose up.
Do your dogs like beef jerky? You could try ZiwiPeak.
It comes in square pieces. Kind of like chopped up beef jerky. I’ve never heard of any dogs refusing to eat it.
I was a stay at home mom for two years. When I went back to work, it was more like a huge break for me. Being a stay at home mom was a much harder work!
You can try cooking for your dogs and add pre-mix.
I’m using thing one and my dog loves it.
There are other brands you can try.
@slvet2 Are you kidding? Hill’s never been recalled?
Pet Food Recall Widens After Toxin Found
Nestlé Purina, Hills join pet food recall
I believe your dog is considered a large breed puppy. Head over to this thread.
@dogspotindia That is the worst recommendation ever.
Have you seen the ingredients of Royal Canin?
I used to feed Nutrisca lamb. It’s pretty good.
It has chicken fat in the ingredients. If you’re looking for food with no chicken at all, it might not work for you. Depending on if your dog could handle chicken fat.

There are some pre-mix dog food that you can add your own meat. The pre-mix just contain veggies, vitamin, and minerals. I wouldn’t add it to kibbles though, it would make it unbalanced.
These are just some of the brands I can think of. There maybe more.
I’m using The Honest Kitchen Preference. My dog loves it.
Look into rotational diets. Your dog would benefit from it.
There are 320 calories in the 12.5 oz. can, so 1 oz. is 25.6 calories.
320 / 12.5 = 25.6
Your dog needs 149 calories.
149 / 25.6 = 5.82
TheNaturalDog is right, your dog needs 5.8 oz.
I’ve been using Wysong Epigen 90 for treats. The size of the kibble is tiny and my dog loves it.
Most 5-star brands do not have soy.
Don’t use Hill’s
Not sure about Barking Heads, never heard of them.
Some people are having some issues with Fromm.
