They have had no signs of aggression triggered by the higher intake of protein, one is a complete lover that knows no enemy, and the other has always had dog reactivity issues, but nothing new since on this diet. They seem to do very well on this food, they have stellar coats, always clean bills of health at the vet, and are very active and fit. But I don't want to be overloading their bodies with protein if it is going to affect their overall health in the future either.
That is the food my dog and my parents dog used to eat. Shambles tested high liver enzymes, Buddy Girl was in what looked like early renal disease, was PU/PD and incontinent. Taking her off the food meant I was also able to take her off stilbestrol.
I will definitely speak with their vet and get them both tested then. They have done so well on it, but I hate to think it could be harming them. Thank you.
