    Thanks for the info! It is rather confusing at least to me. I used the calculator on this site to figure the calcium to phosphorous ratios on the ZiwiPeak air dried and moist (canned). Some were in the ball park of 1.5 or less to 1 and some were just a bit high. I did give her some of the canned it sure looks like a quality product compared to some of the other premium canned foods. She loved it a lot. The only downside I see is the cost.

    I thought it was 8 months before LBP could properly process calcium? Totem is a little over 6 months and I’ve been holding back a bit on switching her to foods with a bit more calcium. I do mix it up a bit in her food rotation with Fromm LBP, Primal Freeze Dried, Honest Kitchen, Vital Essentials freeze dried, Tripett canned beef Tripe and recently Canadae Life Stages canned LGP. I’ve ordered some Ziwi Peak foods for her but have not started her on that yet. Eventually I’m fairly certain I’ll switch her to fresh raw foods.

    Belinda, I beleive the breeder we got our Shiloh from had a puppy from the same litter that developed that after we got our pup. Her name is Jan from Miracle Shilohs on PEI. She might be able to help you. Good luck with Galen I hope he is feeling better. We’re there any other indications something was wrong other than blood from the rectum? Although that would be quite enough!

    Thanks Belinda! I’d love to switch Totem to to fresh raw foods but I’m a bit overwhelmed by all the info. We do have a small local company that sources grass fed and organic meats and organs and bones so I may still try to do it. She did really well eating her first raw turkey neck chewing every last bit really well. She loves the Primal stuff and sings when I mix it up but I’m also going to give her the Fromms LBP food in rotation so I don’t miss anything important in her diet.

    We have 4 month old Shiloh Shepherd and I’ve had her on Fromm Gold Large Breed Puppy and THK Embark/Love mixed in. I also add krill oil and occasionally ground lamb or a sardine and a couple times a week she get a frozen raw beef rib bone with meat on it for her teething so I think I’ve been feeding her ok.

    I want to transition her to raw eventually and I’m trying out some of the Primal formulas to start with rather than jump into full force to start. I’m just using the freeze dried nuggets right now for convenience. My question is are the suggestions on HDMoms PDF still pretty valid and would the Primal formula suggestions on it apply to the freeze dried as well? I just want to assure I’ve got her on the right path.

    Thanks for any help
