    I would nominate a brand called Brit Care. I’m very curious about your opinon. A lot of people say that it is the best low budget grain free food but I haven’t found it in your database.

    Thank you guys. Yo are very nice.

    Has anyone heard of using the sempervivum plants juice for ear infections?
    I use it and it worked a few times when I had ear problems. I just squeeze the leaf and leave the juice in my ear for 10 minutes or so and it helps immidiately..

    theBCnut

    It is not available in my area so I now took some samples of TOTW Wild Prairie. She hasn’t eaten that food yet and she likes it .. At least she hasn’t vomitted right away..
    I just don’t know when can I expect to see positive changes in her ears if I find te right food?

    Cheryl,

    Q: What do you mean gastro sensitive?
    A: She vommits immediately when she eats something she can’t digest, for eg. raw meat, any kind of fruit or when my mother gave her some inappropriate food. She ate grain free food with salmon but was stressed out when we were moving and had very bad gastritis that culminated by blood in vommit. We gave her Hills i/d after which she had a bad case of skin allergy so we tried with z/d and it worked for a while..
    Q: Does she eat a grain free diet?
    A: Not now..
    Q: Is she sensitive to certain proteins& or grains that you are aware of?
    A: I’m not sure because she first reacted badly while eating grain free food (with fish).
    Q: Did your vet culture the ear discharge to see what it was exactly(yeast, fungal, some other infection)?
    A: The vet said that there is no inflammation or otitis just a lot of dark brown ear discharge. But A LOT, like there is mud in her ears. I clean it with Otifree fluid.
    Q: Do you think the ear discharge is diet related?
    A: Yes, it might be related..
    Q: Have you changed foods recently and this happened?
    A: It is happening for a while now.. It started before the horrible gastritis period and I can’t connect it with anything else but food. We moved, the aparment is clean and new.
    Q: Have you been feeding the same food(s)? I know lots of questions
    A: No, because of the gastritis episode and the allergie reaction..
    Q: Does the food have to be dry? If so, have you ever tried soaking the kibble in warm water before feeding? softer foods might be easier on the stomach.
    A: Yes I have and there is no difference because she just doesn’ drink water if I soak it. She normally chews the dry food and drinks some water, she’s not only swallowing..

    Hey guys.
    Has anyone had an problem with dark brown ear discharge. My vet told me that we have to find the cause of that problem but I still have no results. My dog also has some gastroint. problems so it is veeery hard for me to find an opimal diet solution..
    That is one of the reasons I joined this site. 🙂 But I’m still a bit lost because there is just way too much info. I have to study.

    Can you please suggest a dry food for a gastro sensitive dog that in your opinion doesn’t contain stuff which causes that specific ear problems?

    btw I hope my english is understandable, it is not my mother tongue..
