How is the pup doing? Why do you have a pup if you can’t afford a vet?
Hills is a crap food, and vets who know squat about nutrition will recommend it. Also owners need to just worry about the food and not the size/Breed.
Just wanted to clarify that GDSs are NOT a large breed. Second it is spelled ShepHERD. Third, just wondering how you managed getting a 5 week old pup.
High protein IS an issue. And this is why the protein should NOT be more then 25%. It is far from outdated. I have owned dogs for 35 years, I know all about what is needed.
Gregory fromm is a great food, but just so you know this Large breed or even breed specific foods is not needed. It’s just a sales gimimic.
Please stay away from Hills. The food is actually not good at all. And I haven’t found anyone yet to prove it is. As for the weight loss, is she active even with the loss of the leg?
First have you taken him to the vet? When there has been a sudden change it could be health related.
As for the comments about Raw, absolutely not true. Raw does NOT change the dog and does not cause obstruction.
I would definitely get him off the Purina. And I do agree that changing his food to much will not help. Also you can’t just change the food, you need to do it gradually. I also wanted to say that there is no need for the so called Large breed puppy food. I have GSDs who are weaned on Adult. They are fed Raw but also get Kibble/canned. You can feed your pup life stages. But watch the protein as it should be under 25%.
