The question is...switch to WHAT? I noticed the Elk had changed in color and consistency but the dogs continue to do well on it. Until something better comes along, I'm stuck. I can't feed any of the alternatives with serious rice issues and I will NOT feed a high protein. I'm waiting for the new fo...

Rumply, Methioform is added to the "prescription" foods and that is what lowers the ph when you are dealing struvite crystals. You can naturally acidify the dogs ph with fruits, cranberry specifically. It's available in powder form and it's easy to administer. Or in extreme cased, dose on ...

I tried it a few times when I was able to get some samples or otherwise free bits and honestly, I was not a fan. It looked like this green goop and I couldn't really identify anything in it. The dogs I've fed it to never really went crazy for it either. I had the same problem Goo, the only one that...

I'm now giving my dog Nutro Ultra with Evo canned meats and it's working great. less shedding and coat looks wonderful. His poo is not stinky and dark. It's light colored and barely has an odor . Stools should be dark, light is indicative of fillers. Dogs fed raw(except when they eat a lot of bone)...

We're doing homecooked ( lightly cooked meat) but its time consuming and fairy expensive. The meat packer I used for raw has too much organ ect and smells SO BAD I can't cook it at all. I don't have acess like some of my US frinds to the lesser expensive meats they seem to be able to get. Lamb, bis...

barbponys, What then would you suggest for a dog allergic/intolerant to grains? Potato is easier to digest than tapioca, and in my experience, if you're allergic to corn, wheat and oats, so goes the same for barley, quinoa, millet etc. Tima is intolerant to: sunflower,safflower and canola oil dairy...

Either way works for me ;)

Are you giving her a probiotic? I'm assuming, perhaps wrongfully, that she is on an antibiotic? I use a product called PB8 made by Nutrition Now Inc. I've had my dogs on some nasty antibiotics and it's done wonders.

Fransterdoo is right. I have been a member of a raw feeding group for my area on yahoo for years. If there's one in your area they are wonderful. That's how I keep my freezers full of meat at amazing prices.

Barb - Thanks in advance for reading this and for your help. A few questions about your top 5 foods list. - Where does Orijen fall in this, and why not in the top 5? - How does the fact that most of Nature's Variety food comes from "meal" vs. whole meats effect your rating of it, if at al...
