unscientific canidae results!

Hi everyone,

I know that a lot of you are trying out and recommending Canidae... my dogs have been eating Canidae (regular all life stages) all their lives... a few months ago, I switched them to the Canidae lamb and rice for a change of flavour. I noticed no change in Sam (labx) but Maia (boxer) lost weight, became bony, and her coat was dull. I switched back to the regular Canidae two weeks ago and WOW: Maia filled out again, has a shiny coat, and boy am I happy!!
I guess it is due to the lower protein in the L&R. ?? Or maybe Maia and lamb don't get along. Sam seems perfectly fine no matter what I feed.

Cool. Did they like the L&R? My doggies are devouring it. :o They're both doing ok so far on 1/2 l&r and 1/2 high protein...

Hi Prin
They both liked the L&R too. They actually seemed to maybe prefer it to the regular. But I like the regular better for Maia at any rate... (I know that is not a possibility for you). Good idea to supplement with higher protein kibble.

Yeah, good idea for Maia. I was just wondering if it was really tastier or just tasty because it was different.:D Dogs, eh? :D

Just wanted to add...I tried Hunter on L&R and he became violently ill. Thinking it was something he got into, after visiting the vet and getting some meds and a bland diet for awhile, we tried a switch again (both times just a very small amount in with his regular) and he got violently ill again.

He had such an intolerance to lamb that I will try never to switch him off chicken again...:shrug:
