Hello everyone. I wanted to start a discussion on dog food to see what everyone is feeing their dogs. What are the attributes in dog food brands that you look for (ingredients, recalls, price, etc.). Secondly, did you start you puppy on a different dog food brand and then later change to another, and if so why? The first dog I had I started on Science Diet, because at the time I thought that was the best brand of food for him, but after researching the dog I learned that wasn’t necessarily true. I then switched to Diamond’s higher end, I think it was Diamond Naturals. I did that at the request of a breeder I had adopted a Great Dane from. Great Danes are unique in how they grow, and due to the rate at which they grow their diet has to be monitored as not to create bone/joint problems as they mature. From Diamond (I learned Diamond has a recent food recalls at the time) I moved on to Taste of The Wild – Wild Boar. I found this to perform wonders for the skin problems by English Bulldog, Fathead had, nearly eliminating the skin issues he had for so long. The problem with this food is that it seemed to cause bladder stones in my other English bulldog, Goober. I learned after bladder stone had formed in Goober and a $5,000.00 surgery later some dog food ingredients are more prone to causing these types if issues I dogs. Now, I have never had any issues with Labradors and dog food, but, seeing as how I am getting a new Labrador puppy in the coming weeks I am open to new foods I haven’t tried that you all have had good luck with. Thanks, I’ll be looking forward to your replies.
