I just switched my dog to this food and he loves it, and now I have to switch him back to something else. Apparently the company had production issues and is changing all of their formulas: https://sway.com/YyzMyzD9IWovf5jU?ref=Link/?mc_cid=a72cc048c8&mc_eid=21ca791d49
Back to the drawing board (dogfoodadvisor.com).
My husband counteracts the acid in our puppy’s urine with an occasional lime application in the spots needed. He will do this before a good rain overnight, to keep any chemicals away from the puppy. He’s done this twice in the last five months, and the spots do bounce back! You can find lime at any garden supply center.
He was tested for all of the possible issues a couple of times and is clear. Currently, he is about 65 pounds and getting 4 cups a day of Eukanuba, which is slightly less than the recommendation. His output on Eukanuba is OK – twice a day and a good consistency. He just has no interest in eating Eukanuba, but gobbled up the other foods that he has tried. And, he loves to drink water.
I compared the top ingredients for all the foods we tried, and all but one were chicken-based, and the fiber content didn’t seem to matter. No rhyme or reason – I was suspecting fiber but Eukanuba seems pretty high too.
I’d really like to find a food he likes to eat, so I’m going to give the NutriSource a try. I’m in the Chicago metro area and will have to drive out to Gilberts, IL to buy Verus, so that is the second choice. I’ll do it if I have to …. but I hope I don’t have to!
Thank you, everyone, for responding and for your great insights!
I am wondering the same thing. My 5 month old puppy has tried Eukanuba LB puppy (great stool 2x a day but ear issues), Royal Canin Labrador puppy (waterworks), Science Diet Rx (to calm things down) and Fromm Heartland Gold LB puppy (on the soft side, goes 5-6 times a day).
The Horizon Pulsar sounds promising except for the calcium. Any insights? Or recommendations?
