Whaaa? The food I have been feeding Kira has potatoes or sweet potatoes in it, so I would have to go with "No, they do NOT cause mange" Mange is caused by mites. Now generally a weakned immune system predisposes a dog to a certain type of mange, but I am not sure how potatoes would contrib...

Antibiotics causing it?


Quite possibly..Kira gets sick from large doses of cephalexin.

I had better luck splitting the tabs/capsules in half and giving the dose full dose with a generous treat about an hour apart or with a partial meal.

As I said before I use NV raw diets. They do use salmon oil and olive oil, in all the diets, except organic chix. However rod did not have any problems on the beef except for an anal gland issue. When he was on organic chix and now lamb.. his foot licking has exploded. eta: that "as I said bef...

I had a nightmare trying to find a food I could feed Kira that didn't rash her up. As little as I wanted to, I fed her prescription (read: pricey!!) Royal Canin Venison and Potato for about a year before finding something else that worked..Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream formula (salmon/fish and po...

That's what we use as well. It has held up really well, but like another poster said, we don't allow tugging with it.

Kira has always been uber-submissive with other dogs..although she had a bad experience with a "bichipoo" when she was younger that left her none too fond of little white yippy things. She get along well with our greyohund, and defers to her, but I have noticed that she is started to show ...

Just wanted to update.. My mutts have been on the Pacific Stream TOTW for almost three weeks now. (well, two weeks transition, one week just TOTW) The greyhound has the best poo she's had since we've had her, and seems to have lots of energy and bit less dander. Kira has somewhat larger poos, but st...

The venison and potato used to be venison and rice until the melamine scare. It was one of the foods affected. Just to point out- NB did not know the rice they were using was coming from China. They were buying from an American source which was in turn buying from China without telling them. They r...

Oh, and do they have quality control issues? I got a bit of free time and googled some reviews, and the most common seems to be that people bought a new bag, and the smell and color was off/different, still fed it to their dogs, and said dogs became ill. They contacted the company, and was told tha...

Kira is doing fantastic on the Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream formula. I am pretty sure it is just salmon/fish. The was something that made her itchy in all the NB formulas, (I am thinking maybe flax oil?) and prior to feeding this, the only thing she could have was a prescription Royal Canin Veni...

Kira watches this when it's on too! She perks up and sits in front of the tv, especially when there are "barky" cases. lol And I love Daddy too.. :inlove: While I won't go into his methods being right or wrong, I do have to give him tons o' credit for portraying pitties as "dogs first...
