I feed Raw now, but when I fed kibble, it was Wellness Whitefish and Sweetpotato, and she did amazingly on it. Before that, she was on nutro lamb and rice :yuck: and she didn't do so well on it.

I know that this is almost "SHUNED" on here , but i feed Pedigree with chicken and rice and my dogs are doing GREAT on it!
However I am thinking of switching to that Costco brand:confused:

Dodger is on raw now as well... When he was on kibble he was fed everything from Pedigree, Royal Canin, Eukanuba, Solid Gold, Go! Natural and Wellness. He was on Go! Natural for the longest amount of time!

I know that this is almost "SHUNED" on here , but i feed Pedigree with chicken and rice and my dogs are doing GREAT on it!
However I am thinking of switching to that Costco brand:confused:

:crazy: Don't worry, because I found Dodger so unexpectedly he was on Pedigree puppy for a while! Also, I found that the Costco brand was really stinky and created lots of poops (and gas)... This is also the only food that Dodger left in his bowl the first time it was offered (VERY unusual for him as he eats everything):eek: ...Some people say "if its not broke, don't fix it" - there are definately some dogs that do well on such brands for their entire life - it can't be explained but it happens:D!

Ummm....well I have fed all mine Ol'Roy High Performance mixed with Ol'Roy canned food since forever. All do real well on it. Living here in nowhere's ville I know this brand will always be available..unlike my cats food (Whiskas) which can come and go off the shelves! I have had my kid bring cat food from Kansas because this WalMart here cannot make up their minds!!

We did a switch from Canidae to Kirkland Lake (Costco) I know alot of people will think thats wrong to feed them but when I was going through a 40 lb bag at $$ every other week it got to be a bit much:( they are doing just fine on the new food, like it, small and tiny poops, and with the cost being kept down makes the hubby VERY happy

Harley was on ProNature Chicken and did well, but when he got sick in January, and lost a lot of weight and fur, we started him on Eukanuba Fish and Potatoe. He loves it and is doing great on it.

No reason to change.

It's not bad except for the beet pulp, brewer's yeast and egg product- still better than their other ones. The beet pulp might actually help Bubba firm up...:o

I was in Walmart :yuck: today buying a rubbermaid box to store Layla's freezer food in, and I decided to stroll down the pet aisles. There was a woman there buying dog food :yuck: and she was saying out loud to herself "i just can't decide which is better, kibbles and bitz or puppy chow!" So I politely (I hope) said to her, "as a dog owner, I would reccomend you not buy your dog food at walmart, or any other grocery/department/all purpose store for that matter. These foods are 90% filler, and inedible material. Higher quality dog foods avalable at high-end pet stores may be more expensive per bag, but will be cheaper in the long run." Her response? "Mind your own f-ing business!"

I'm so glad I try to help, it really makes me feel good about myself :thumbs up

(Apparantly, I have a face that says "please make all complaints to me!" at work, because if there is a complaint, or a rude word to be had, they tell it to me, and ask that I relay it to the appropriate person...:thumbs up :thumbs up :thumbs up

I'm getting to the point where I'm going to throw my hands up in the air and say "Here's Mummy's wallet YOU ungrateful boogerheads can do your own shopping". We've tried every A-list brand of kibble there is (I think) since January with no "hits". Right now we're finishing off a bag of Merrick's (hmmm or is this one Fromm's ?) but to get the @#%&*$ (translation for the pure of heart: sweet-faced little angels o' mine) to eat this $75!!! bag of stuff I have to mix in canned salmon. Grrrrr.... So - my last hope is that Global will start carrying Timberwolf again so that we can try the seafood variety. I see that Performatrin Ultra also has a seafood based food. We may try that one. Failing that, we're going back to raw/cooked and try fish and organ meats only.

Aside from being very expensive, it is

Not as good as First Mate....but I fed it to my pets for
some time, and they did excellent on it.
Its like one of only 2 types of foods the Vet Clinics here
sell.

Does anyone have the ingredient list for Performatrin's salmon based food? I'm just curious if they removed the synthetic vitamin K. I looked online but I can't find it. It's not listed on their website for some reason.

Prin, I think your right about the Eagle Pack.. It is working wonders for Bubba. He's not scratching anymore either which is a huge bonus. But this food is $77 for a 30lb bag. Which lasts all of 3 weeks. :eek: I can deal with the cost.. but I have to order it since the store won't just stock it for me. I cut it close with the last bag because I forgot to order a new one. I'm so absent minded. :( I'd rather just be able to go pick up a bag when I need it and not have to worry about ordering and if it will be in on time. UGH!

If you've read other dog food threads, it's also been discussed that vets get minimal nutitional information, and usually get kickbacks from what they sell.
It's not a very good food. It's pretty mediocre.

Last time I checked, all the Performatrin formulas they had on their website had it, so I doubt they would take it out of one and not the rest...

I'm glad something is finally working for Bubba.. It's hard to arrange orders though.. If you buy too many at a time, you're always sure you have an extra after this bag... If you order too few, you have to think about it all the time...:rolleyes:

I agree with technodoll... I've never heard anybody endorse hill's. The only reason a dog or cat should ever be on hill's is if they have a specific medical condition that they can't treat otherwise. Hill's and Science Diet are the same crap and none of the regulars here recommend either.

Capone was originally on Nutrience and honestly seemed fine, great very shiny coat, no gas, normal bowel movements.

I did switch after coming to this site to Wellness Chicken. The day i brought in the new food he was all over the bag nudging it with his nose so i know the smell and taste is better. His coat is the same and shiny as usual, he does have a little tiny bit more gas but i chalk that up to more actual substance in his food. He likes his food better as I used to add a little tiny bit of water to his old food just to interest him in it. Being the breed he is though he doesnt over indulge unless its human food then he has no control.

This is my fisrt post and I am honored to be in such good company! You guys really know your stuff....:)
It is unfortunate that the general public is taken in by slick marketing ( Iams , Eukanuba , etc ) and pretty dog food packages. I agree with most everyone's recommendations. Personally I feed my 4 month old toy poodle, Sensible choice by Royal Canine. She had a bit of a sensitive stomache coming from the breeder and was very picky as to "taste." Royal Canine produces solid stools as well as pleases her discerning palate. Solid Gold is an excellent holistic food , and I may switch over to that when she is an adult.

I had my cats on Hills TD. They've always been on hills or medical. Anyhoo, my one cat is 4 years old. His eyes have always watered. I was told when he was younger that it had to do with his tear ducts. So for 4 years his eyes have watered daily. About two months ago i switched to Felidae. Would you believe his eyes no longer water? That alone was enough to show me how much better a good food is.

I didn't mean for my post to be nasty or anything (that's a downfall of computers). I was just stating that yeah I do get employee discounts on things but that's not why I buy my food at work. In fact, my girl that's now on hypoallergenic food has been on may different foods (veterinary only foods and pet store foods) for weight loss mainly but also because we were trying to find a food that she could eat without vomiting up a storm.
But if anyone has any ideas of a weight loss food that is also considered hypoallergenic I'd be all ears.
Sorry if there was any misunderstanding.

Did the vet identify the allergies ? And how if so .... my real child has lots of allergies so I am interested in dog allergies my doggie scratches alot

mafiaprincess
July 10th, 2006, 08:46 PM
Allergy testing, like a human would. Could be environmental or food based allergies. More common is an intolerance to something though. Allergies can cause full blown anaphylactic shock in their worst form like in people. Which is how food with crummier ingredients can make claims about their food not being a problem with allergies in dogs. Cause in-tolerances to stuff are becoming more and more common the more people screw with how foods are grown and processed. So the change in one word makes a consumer think oh great, if they aren't beyond informed sadly.

I didn't get any tests yet... But by trial and error, I figured out the wheat (and ragweed) for Jemma and the chicken for Boo for sure. The rest are a little more blurry. You can definitely ask your vet. They can be expensive, depending on how comprehensive the tests are.

RVT092481, I was joking, but if you had gotten a discount, it still would have been a bonus.:)

I just switched Buster to Solid Gold and he's doing GREAT on it!! He has a very sensitive tummy, and all the hollistic foods I've tried have given him the runs (almost every Wellness flavor, almost every Eagle Pack flavor), but after just 4 days of Solid Gold he's doing SO WELL!!! He's farting like crazy...but then again, he's a boxer, so you gotta expect some stink bombs!

I'm feeding him Just a Wee Bit (Bison) for now (because I wanted to try Wolf King, but they only had a very large bag....)
The meat sources are the same in Just a Wee Bit and Wolf King, so I bought the small little bag (just a wee bit has a little more protein in it...).
But I'll be buying Wolf King soon!! Woohoo! I'm so glad I found a hollistic food that Buster can digest!

Prin
July 12th, 2006, 04:12 PM
Yey! If the stools are soft, you can reduce the amount you're feeding gradually until they harden up (tends to be a common problem on holistic foods, so I thought I'd mention it). The wee bit is just more dense, but otherwise is pretty well the same as the wolf king.:)

meb999
July 13th, 2006, 02:03 PM
well, I jinxed myself!!
Buster's got the runs. again. I hope they go away :fingerscr :fingerscr , I was really hoping I'd found a hollistic formula that he can digest :o

Thanks for the advice, Prin, I'll wait a week (to see if the poops get a little harder), then reduce the amount I'm feeding him. How much do Boo and Jemma get?

My Dani also has problems with loosy goosy poos.

She was originaly on Nutro ,,, ng
then we swtiched to welnness ng
Now she is on Medi-Cal Gastro sensitive blend and finishing her antibiotics today and still goes one day mooshy and then one day very loosly .

I don't think Dani has had one hard stool since the day I got her.

Dani is going back to the vet on the 21st for her booster shot and by then vetinsurance kicks in (unless the pre-existing condition clause works against me) and we will run more tests then if her poo is not more solid.

I agree that is a good idea I think I will NOT giver her the centinal till I see the vet on the 21st at least by then I will see if she still has loose poo or diahrea while JUST on medi-cal with no antibiotics in her.

Did you get the probiotics yet? Seriously, they might help a lot. Empty one capsule on her food and see what happens.

Prin,
I have been giving her 1 capsule at night with her antibiotic just by putting it in the back of her throat shes great that way.
Her poo is much better this week but I want to see what happens after the antibiotics are finished.
