Diamond Naturals is a good brand, very decently priced also. About $30-ish for 40 lbs of food.

Which Taste of the Wild formula are you using? I had my pack on the Prairie Beef/Vension, and they itched like there was no tomorrow and shedded a ton. I changed them all to the Wetlands, and they did much better. You may also try a food specifically for allergy dogs like Natural Balance or Californ...

If she's not eating it within 5-10min., pick it up and offer it the next meal. With multiple dogs in the house you should not leave the food out all day. It's better to feed 1-2x a day and pick it up within 10min. if they refuse to eat it. I agree. My dogs are all fed in their crates, I think dogs ...

It's a general rule of thumb, of course there are exceptions. It was right on the money for Duke and Shelby.

At 6 months, they're pretty much through their large growth spurt. She will continue to grow, just not as fast. If you want to get an idea of what she will weigh, take her weight at 4 months and multiply it by 2. That will give you a ballpark figure.

Check out the "Low Cost/Spay neutering" sticky at the top of this section, you might find something in there. You could also call your local humane society and ask if they know of any places that will do it at low cost. Do not let her around male dogs while she is in heat. She needs to be ...

two of my three had Demodex as puppies and we used oral Ivermectin to treat it. It worked really well for Duke, but Shelby was very sensitive to it and we discontinued it (huge pupils, vomiting, lethargy, disorientation). A lot of the times, the small spots will fix themselves, but you have to watch...

Taste of the Wild is a great food. I fed it to my pack, including Shelby when she was a growing pup, and they all did great.

Green tripe is very beneficial to dogs, but like mentioned above, should be used as a supplement and not the entire meal. It is full of vitamins and minerals and is great for the skin and coat. Just make sure it's the green tripe and not the bleached white tripe, which has very little nutritional va...

In the baking area of the grocery store, look for the Libby's canned pumpkin. Make sure it is the pure canned pumpkin and not the pumpkin filling (which has sugar and spices and stuff).

You need to go to the vet ASAP. A pup can get dehydrated very quickly with vomiting and diahrrea...especially if it's been happening for over 24 hours and the dog refuses to eat.

x2 on the pumpkin. Just make sure it's the plain stuff, and don't add too much or it will have the opposite effect.
