The coveted TRIPLE POST!! lol :thumbsup: You are right, there are many more minerals to consdier. I had originally compared more than the minerals above b/w EVO and TOTW. EVO has a complete analysis on their site and TOTW sent me theirs in an email but Wellness only provided ash/calc/phos... plus th...

So I finally got all the ash, calcium and phosphorous info from the food companies. I am gathering here that the "goal" is to get as much protein from the food as possible while minimizing as much as you can the amounts of fat, overall ash, calcium and phosphorous (as well as other mineral...

Yes, microchips can migrate. My cat's chip has migrated to her upper shoulder, but it is still scanable and shows up accurately. I don't think it would necessarily have to be redone unless it migrated too far, to where someone might not scan.

Boss does the under-the-breath soft cry when I am at my computer working on something for long periods of time (like a paper or doing research) and I am forced to ignore him. With him it's a boredom thing. Mental exercises work great, even just a few minutes of obedience or agility work calms him do...

You have to email most companies to find out the ash content. I emailed TOTW and their ash content is: 9.5% for both the High Prairie and Wetlands formulas and 8.5% for the Pacific Stream. EVO lists everything on their website and theirs is around 11.1% for poultry formula and only 8.7% for the red...

Hate the stuff... its to rich, too high in calcium and ash. There are much better "grain free" options available that have perfected what EVO started. Just a question. You say "too high in calcium AND ash" but I thought "ash" was a term used to describe the mineral con...

If you switch too fast the gas is terrible and diarrhea is also possible. I spent 3 weeks switching my terriers over to EVO, because my bf had been feeding them Royal Canin before I intervened. What food were your dogs on before? I, like akaspaddero, feed the chicken formula. I used to change flavor...

When I switched my dogs over to EVO they had really bad farts but over time they got less frequent. Now it's just the occasional room clearing toxic gas. My smaller dogs prefer to eat later in the day and seem not to be hungry early in the morning. I guess it's just their preference, they've always ...

As soon as it got cold and dry Boss started to get flaky skin, like dandruff all over his body and he's black so it showed very well. eww. I started him on fish oil and started noticing a big difference in about a week and after 2 weeks, not a flake in sight.

3 dogs and 1 cat, FAR less than $40 per week on kibble. Now if I included treats and chews, etc. it would be higher. For the dogs I buy a 28.6 lb bag of EVO at $45 which lasts them about 4 weeks on average. I have one APBT and two smaller dogs. He eats 2 cups per day, and between the two of them, th...

You read my mind!

If not vision related then maybe something neurological. Either way, good luck to you. :hug:

Did you let Teddy keep his stolen prize? Ziggy, my JRT, tries to steal Boss' bones or toys all the time. Even if they have the exact same bone he will inevitably want the one Boss has. When I catch him trying to sneak in, I stand up and he backs away from Boss. If I do turn my back and then find tha...

Durable Nylabones (not the softer ones) and GoughNuts are the only things not yet destroyed in my home. I buy the occasional stuffie when I find them on sale but it is understood that they have a death sentence.

I've never used it before but I know there is stuff you can put in your dog's food to make their poop taste bad. It won't help with all the delicious stray animal poop, but it'll at least deter him from his own. When I added fish oil to my dogs' diets all of the sudden their poop started tasting fab...
