My dog is super picky and changes her tastes after some time.  Right now it’s mainly Cocolicious canned food mixed with AvoDerm dry food.

Westwood:  Fromm’s here too!!!

Thinking of switching to a comparable brand bc it’s pretty hard to come by where I live. And I’m about to be moving 50 miles from the only store I know that has it.

My Rottie is on Eukanuba large breed puppy food. She’s 14 months old and sheds like crazy. I’m wondering if its the food…any thoughts?

Good to hear!  Yes, I am sure his age had something to do with it as well.  It was probably just too much protein for an older gentleman.  It really is great food.  I would buy mine from chewy.com, which was the only place I could find it.

We are using Fromms Whitefish and potato  blend food, or any non-chicken based flavor. Dog has an allergy to chicken. His scratching is much less now. He is also on allergy medicine. 

Vet wants him to drop a bit of weight as his back knees are bad….carrying less weight will help his comfort level.

Costco Puppy chow with a little canned pumpkin and chopped broccoli stems (raw) mixed in for our 6 month old pup. Occasionally a little bit of chicken or an egg too.

Our one dog gets bored easily and we would have to switch food every month to every other month.  We finally got him to eat one consistantly and that’s Purina One Venison.  All 3 love it.

Science diet. Future Father-In-Law is a vet and that’s what he sells/recommends. Everyone is always saying how skinny our dog is, no she’s just not fat like a lot of dogs are how days!

I hear a raw diet is good for them.

Our dogs are fed dried food, I soak it in water first as the don’t take on much water. If they get sicky at all, I give them boiled egg and toast.

I personally would avoid any food sold in a vets office.  Science Diet, Royal Canin, Purina – the first ingredients are usually a carbohydrate/starch, followed by low quality meat by-product.  I have been to ten different vets over the past four years, and nine of those ten had no clue about canine nutrition.  Most of them thought that the canine digestive system is similar to a human’s digestive sys, when in fact, it’s the complete opposite.

leembee: Agreed! Most Vets are not adequately trained in nutrition.  My vet tried to push a certain prescription diet on me and I almost fainted once I read the ingredients–they’re full of crap and awful by-products.
