axeed go to the canidae website and look for a local dealer.... you'll find its around the same price and about 100 times better than purina... the PAWS can be fed to both your adult and your puppy so you dont have to double up on cost for a year with dog food.... if your interested in BARF diet then let us know, there are a bunch of resources out there for you to read.... i never feed veggies to the dogs tho (mainly because for them it give the rocket squirts) but if you do want to than i agree with earlier post...puree it and mix with the kibble... if you are mixing raw and kibble than poach the eggs instead of serving raw (as i understand it you increase your chances of salmonella and e.coli if there are starches in the stomach for the bacteria to feed on, so poaching will cook it out) good luck.... and as a last tid bit---be sure to change your adult dogs diet as well since its never too late to start :peace:

Have you found a place that carries good food near you?

Glad he's doing better!

Really heavy worm infections can stunt a puppy's growth. Add to that the crappy food he got before, and I'm not surprised he is pretty small. But it's good that he is looking better!

Whatever dog food you get, make sure meat is the first ingredient. Foods with corn, rice, etc up front in the ingredients list are mostly filler. I would also mix in some water (if you are feeding dry kibble). Dogs like to have it mushy, and it makes it smell too.

Good luck! :thumbsup:
