This article has some age on it but found it interesting as I was not aware of the possible
effects of probiotics.
Maybe this is old science by now but I also read a different article stating close to the same.
Snip from article.
“Over the past several years, and most recently with increasing frequency, I have found urinary tract infections in cats and dogs with a particular strain of Enterococcus bacteria. Independently, I have come to scrutinize the ingredients of a myriad of boutique pet foods and have found a connection. Pets with Enterococcal urinary tract infection are eating these boutique foods that contain the bacteria”
I think I read on Dog-aware that You might want to add less oil in the Urban Wolf as
it can be pretty high per their instructions.
I was reading last week from a site called The Dog Press and one of the editors had a list of ingredients to avoid. She had on the list most of the meat meals. The reasoning
was high levels of fluoride due to the manufacturing process. I have no clue on the validity. But will pass along the link. They do seem to favor a species appropriate diet, in this case raw and variety.
She listed other ingredients that are inappropriate that I have a hard time agreeing with.
One was probiotics, I can understand in certain situations that they may be contraindicated.But I’m not sure I would throw out the baby with the bath water.
Anyways here is the link if you would like to take a look.

Mary over at Dogaware has compiled a list of lower fat foods both dry and canned.
Just do a search at her site for low fat diets if interested.
