If corn's the problem, stick to the high quality, corn-free foods (INNOVA EVO, for instance, is a pretty good food. No grains in it! Check the ingredients). Any of the high quality kibbles that are corn-free would work. But each dog IS different, so you have to evaluate how your dog does as an indiv...

If you're dog has allergies, then yes you need to be careful with what you give the dog. You may not be able to switch foods. Or you can try giving a one-meat food source like RAW chicken backs ONE day of the week (if your dog is not allergic to chicken). Do you know what your dog is allergic to? Or...

In the wild, dogs do not eat the same food every day. In fact, from what I've noticed, switching foods d...

The procedure is much easier on younger dogs than older dogs, but really, there's absolutely no reason to crop a dog's ears unless he or she is going into the show ring (and even then it's optional).
