I'm making an inquiry on my mom's behalf. She has two shelties, and I have recently persuaded her to switch to a healthier diet for her dogs (they were both on Hill's). She has switched to Kirkland for now, but she would like to find some of the higher quality dog foods.
Is there anyone in the Québec city area who knows where to find foods such as Wellness, Canidae, Solid Gold, Orijen, etc.?
Your help would be greatly appreciated, the store locators on the websites are not all that helpful...
Please think of poor Bobby who has lost two teeth to gingivitis!

Palais De Simba (Le)

Quebec, QC G1X 1S1
They carry Innova and Solid Gold but not Orijen nor Canidae. Hope this helps.

That's very close to where my mom lives!

You're welcome :) . Just remind your mom that, whatever new food she chooses to feed, to make the switch gradually.

I would choose Innova over Solid Gold. :pawprint:

I was just thinking......if your mother is interested in trying Orijen, she could always ask the store owner/manager to try and order it in for her. It's not sold anywhere near Quebec City, as far as I can tell, so it would probably make for better business if they can carry it (seeing it's so popular). I have a friend who lives in that area and she mentioned that this place is the only one she knows of that stocks better quality pet foods. It may be worth a try.

I hear you, Rainbow, Innova does seem better than solid gold. Grain-free rules. :thumbs up
I will see if I can convince her to try to get the store to order Orijen. Funny thing about my mom, I sent her a bunch of articles about healthy pet food, I even sent her to this forum, but she still got hoodwinked into bying a crappy food because the clerk said that junk was just as good as the "designer brand" at half the cost.
Turns out the designer food was Wellness and the crap-which-shall-not be-named listed corn, wheat and animal digest in its ingredients :yuck: :eek:
So, after a good scolding about reading labels properly and not letting pushy clerks boss her around :D , I convinced to at least get Kirkland as a compromise.
Can you believe she is actually shy about asking the store to order a specific food for her? :rolleyes: She went to check out Wellness, and they only had one flavor in store, and she said "they don't have anything else from that brand".
But that's my mom.:lovestruck:
So, I'll try to convert her to Innova or Orijen if she can get it. I'm also going to work on my aunt. Her dog suffers from frequent ear infections. She says it's because he's one of those droopy ears type (cocker I think), but now I know that that may not be the sole factor.

Two good websites for them to check out are:
Good luck :fingerscr :goodvibes: and I hope you get them converted. :D
