    I was just thinking the same thing about my dog with liver disease. How did you figure out the math part?

    The Rayne looks good but it is kinda high. This my be a silly question but can’t I just give him less of the high quality and mix it with more vegetables? He doesn’t even eat a half cup of food at a time, so what if I cooked some carrots, sweet potatoes etc and mixed it together. Then fed 1/4 cup of the mix and 1/4 cup of my regular grain free?

    Does that make sense?

    Thanks for the info. At least the first ingredient isn’t corn although it is brewers rice. From Hill’s website:
    “Brewers Rice, Pork Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Dried Egg Product, Soybean Meal, Powdered Cellulose, Flaxseed, Pork Protein Isolate, Chicken Liver Flavor, Dicalcium Phosphate, Lactic Acid, Soybean Oil, Potassium Chloride, Dried Beet Pulp, Calcium Carbonate, Glycerol Monostearate, vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of vitamin C), Niacin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid, Menadione Dimethylpyrimidinol Bisulfite (source of vitamin K)), Choline Chloride, Iodized Salt, L-Arginine, Taurine, DL-Methionine, minerals (Zinc Oxide, Manganous Oxide, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite), L-Carnitine, L-Tryptophan, preserved with Mixed Tocopherols & Citric Acid, Phosphoric Acid, Beta-Carotene, Rosemary Extract.”

    I’m gonna have to do more research on the subject.

    As far as daycare and training, you have to do what you have to do…..Better to be trained by someone else then not be trained at all.

    You have to figure out what will work best for the and your puppy, if it was up to most of the “experts & internet” I wouldn’t have my wonderful littermates.

    Good luck

    LOL, my outside big dogs LOVE sour milk, the chunkier the better.

    My babies on the other hand get pickier everyday. She won’t eat out of the glass bowl, so I started putting it on a paper plate, does a little better. Her brother will eat just a little bit from the bowl or paperplate, but they both prefer the kibble right on the floor….I think they just want me to interact with them while they eat….eating out of my hand is even better then the floor. 🙂 Luckily they both weigh less then 4 pounds.

    Here is another article on the same topic. Interesting, I’m still going to go grain free.

    HDM, thanks for the advice. I’m in the process of transitioning my 15 w/o chinese cresteds from the Royal Canin they were on when I got them to Blue Buffalo Wilderness. They seem to have no issues with the switch, I did just 1/4 of the new for only one day then switched to 50/50. I guess so long as I stay with a high end grain free we should be OK.

    When you talk about rotation do you mean among brands or just varieties of the same brand?

    LOL, you must have gone online after getting them like I did. I have Chinese crested littermates, a female hairless and a male powderpuff. I was really worried for a while but have decided not to worry about it. If they didn’t have each other to chase around the house I would be crazy by now.
    I’ve read how responsible breaders wont sell 2 to the same family, etc, well I guess I didn’t have a good breader but I think I have two great dogs. Mine are aprox 14 weeks, born Oct 5. I do have them sleep apart(after reading online about this great sin) but that’s it otherwise mostly they are together.

    Good luck, and keep posting I will try to as well.
