I've had problem decided what to feed the boys ever since I got Stanley. I didn't want to buy crappy food so I did a bunch of research and bought Canidae for Stanley. I cannot just buy Canidae from any pet store I have to go to specific pet store to buy them. When we were living up North there was only one pet store that sold Canidae which was not a problem but I wanted to give Stanley food that is good for him and is not filler food that I can get from a normal pet store like Petco and Petsmart. Anyway I changed him to Nutro which was not bad but hubby didn't like him eating Nutro because he said that he had loose stool so when he was done with Nutro we changed him back to Canidae again.
Is time to buy dog food again now so we went and google Canidae so we can locate a store to buy them. Well we happen to come across consumer report and lately there are a lot of customers complaining about Canidae because they changed their ingredients and pets were scratching, having lose stool etc. Well those symptoms fits Stanley's symptoms!So hubs said that Stanley's problem might be because we are again feeding him Canidae. Stanley started scratching like crap ever since we moved down here but also eating Canidae. Thinking Canidae might not fit Stanley we are trying to decide which brand we should get for them now. We were thinking to try either Evo, Innova or California Natural. The boys are almost out of food hence we decided to locate a dealer that's close to our house so we can buy them some food. The owner recommended California Natural for dogs that has loose stool and scratch a lot so we bought that. Yupp another new brand of food! I will need to monitor both boys when we officially switch them to their new food. I even took a bunch of samples to see if any other brand would fit them. Hubby bought a tub of meat (looks like Jimmy Dean's sausage) for the boys too.
I'm hoping that changing the new food will prevent both of them from scratching like crazy (initially I thought it was allergy) it might still be allergies but we'll have to see if it does anything to Stanley's stool. Hopefully I don't have to go through the process of hunting for dog food anytime again. Every single time when they eat a brand several bags we decide to change their food! I guess in a way is good so they won't get sick of their food.
