    Hi Again,

    So I think it was a little too early to call that success.

    Based on this link https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/reports/editors-choice/
    I decided to try Annamaet Grain Free Manitok however after two days my dog just stopped eating it. I mean he won’t even sniff it. At first I thought it was still his allergies but once I gave him some of his old food (Orijen puppy large) he finished that in 2 seconds.

    I found this link:
    https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/best-dog-foods/hypoallergenic-dog-foods/
    That talks about Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods
    And more specifically I decided to try ACANA Duck & Bartlett Pear Singles Formula Dry

    This food has limited ingredients and I figured it would be a good place to start as it’s based on duck and not chicken like the orijen one.

    My dog loves it, I mean he chases me when I go get it, which he has never done before (very picky eater).

    However I’m not sure about the dosage and/or if it’s suitable for large breed puppies. My golden retriever is 9 months old and weighs about 83lb.
    The label says that there’s 1.3% calcium which I think should be okay (as per my understanding as long as it’s less than 3.5% it’s all good). Can someone confirm that?

    Can someone confirm that?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks a lot 4footedfoodie! I gave him some Annamaet Grain Free Manitok Red Meat yesterday and this morning (with a mix of the Orijen puppy large) and I think it’s already looking better for him. The eyes are not as swollen as yesterday and he’s not puking today. I think I might have proven my suspicion. I’ll monitor for a few days…

    How often would you say you need to switch foods?
