I am presently living at my parents' house to take care of their dog while they are on vacation for a couple of weeks. Sparky is a mini-toy poodle x who has no major health problems (he's mostly deaf, kind of blind, not really able to jump anymore, and doesn't have all of his teeth), is normal weight, and is 17 years old. He's eaten Iams kibble all of his life, supplemented by things such as yogurt and sweet potato (and canteloupe, which he loves) but now my mom sort of softens it with water. Anyway, I'm obsessed with "good" pet food ever since getting my cat, and I'd like to supplement (or replace some of) Sparky's dry food with some sort of yummy canned food that would be easy for him to eat. I don't see much point in stopping the Iams entirely since he's used to it and eats it, and I doubt it will do him much harm at this point. Anyway, does anybody have any good canned food ideas? At the moment I'm giving him little bits of Performatrin Ultra with his meals, and he loves it. Is there something better that I should try?
