Personally, I wouldn't buy any of those brands. If Wal-mart offers Nutro Natural Choice Lamb & Rice (green bag with a big fuzzy sheepdog looking thing on the front), I would go with that. But I would order a quality food online before I'd buy Nutro, too. But surely, living in the country, there...

Thanks! Purina One it is (until I can convince them about RAW....). Thanks again for all the suggestions. Feel free to add more if anyone thinks of anything I have 2 days before we leave for their house (and get the food on the way).

Walmart food for dog - suggestions requests

Yes, I've used the search function, but to be honest, I don't have a ton of time to wade through the mounds of information out there and was wondering what some of you would recommend. Here's the situation: My finacee's family is adopting a dog for her father. Everyone knows about the dog & has ...

Thanks. The reason I believe it to not be raw related is that this issue has happened 2x on kibble over the past year (part of the reason I switched to raw in hopes of helping clear this up permanently). But right now he gets pretty much beef, chicken or some ground turkey. I'll try the oil. Any oth...

Itchy skin

I've been having an issue I can't seem to trace to alergies or food with cody. He gets itchy skin starting at his front shoulders. The past 2 times, I tried medicated shampoos or oatmeal shampoos, but eventually, it turned into a bacterial infection that required a trip to the vet and drugs. Well, h...

Mass or Mast Cell Tumor?

Cody just got his stitches out ( :headbang: ) from his surgery the other week to remove a mass (or mast????) growth on his side. The Vet said the lab found clean margins and believes they got it all. My limited understanding (as I didn't think to ask questions when I spoke to the vet) was cool, had ...

yeah, when I first got Cody, he had hairless spots, well really large patches about the size of a fist, on both sides of his body. His foster mom said it was possibly due to rubbing the crate or something... I'm finding that less and less what she stated is accurate, so I have dismissed that. But ye...

I switched to Pinnacle duck back in March because he was having what appeared to be an alergic reaction to Solid Gold - he had been on Solid gold for like 2 years while being fostered. I don't have any photos of the bumps, but they start out as just that - bumps, then scab over & fall off. The v...

My dog has been getting bumps lately and according to the Vet, he believes them to be alergies to something - not food, but source is yet to be determined. He described the bumps as basically doggie acne. His current recommended course of action is to bathe more frequently & keep an eye on it. I...

Not really chewing Heartgard

Cody pretty much inhales the Heartgard chewables I give him. The question is: Does he still get teh protection? I don't see anything unusual come out the backend.
Thanks.
