Food decision

  • Is anyone familiar with either natural harmony farms food or nutro max food? If so which one would you suggest I feed my B (1 year old). I'm been feeding him natural harmony and he seems to like it but since I ran out and they don't sell that anywhere else but the supermarket I bought Nutro Max and he seems to like it too. (Wet food). They don't contain those no no ingredients like by-products or corn.

  • what do you feed for dry food?

    my dog had major digestive problems with Nutro. digestive problems at BOTH ENDS! it wasn't pretty.

    for wet food I really love Merrick. You can see the difference when you open the can.

  • I saw that at the pet store O.k. For dry food we were using iams until the scare (I didn't realize it did not include dry food ) so we started using the natural harmony also for the dry food. Merrick also has dry food do you use that also?

    I had Duke on Nutro dry and Merricks dry and wet - I think he'll eat anything, but when I got Daisy our puppy last month, she came with Canidae, all life stage formula. It looks to have all good ingredients, (no corn meal). I've been feeding both dogs for about a month now with it. Most importantly for Daisy as she's not house trained so picking up the poop is a breeze (solid), when it's in the house. Duke & Daisy get 1/2 cup 3 x per day.

  • I have used Canidae for quite a few years and all mine do quite well on it… It is high on the list of good quality dog food.

  • Haven't seen that one. I'll look around.

  • I don't use the Merrick dry, but I certainly would, it's great food, IMO. I currently use Solid Gold Hund-n-Flocken which is a lamb based kibble. I then add 2 scoops of Merrick canned in, mix up, and end up w/ one very happy, healthy, and content dog.

    I've also heard good things about Canidae.

    Innova is a good product, and they like it. My rule of thumb is " if it's on the supermarket shelf it's mass produced with cheaper ingredients so I don't buy it". I like IVD products (get at the vet) because there are no additives.

  • We feed our Bs Merricks dry and wet food. You can order online big bags of it…which makes it very convenient!!

    Their wet food looks like human food...espeically their wingaling :D :D

  • I think I saw the Merricks at the pet store. Funny cause before our B I had a toy poodle (he's in doggie heaven now) and I used to feed him mighty dog for the whole 14 years of his life and here I am now asking for food advise for Champ. You live, you grow, you learn.

  • I have fed Iams or Eukanuba for my dogs/cats for 10 years. I had a dobie and a rot prior to my 2 now. I usually put a little sour cream in it to get them to eat it faster. I like the food. It is conveinint, not to expensive and they like it. Both dogs and cats haven't had any digestive problems on it. The recent recall was only on wet food, which you know already, but I have never fed that to any of the animals because I want to keep their teeth strong.

  • omg thanks..how dumb of me to not consider the fact that those idiots at the pet store would take them off the shelf. Thanks a million for this info.

  • i was so concerned about the recall when it first happened I took for granted checking the labels again.
