Hi everybody, I just joined this forum after desperately trying to find information of dog food. I have a 3 1/2 male golden retriever named Sandy. For the last year I have been feeding him Canidae Lamb and Rice. I used to buy the 40 pound bags, 3 at the time so it would last me a very long time and I didnt know of the change in formula until I went on Monday to get my new set of food. The store owner did tell me that the formula changed and that it was mostly in the carbohydrate breakdown. I read the ingredients and eventhough I wasn't too happy to see barley and bran in the list I thought that it should be OK. Well, Sandy started having the most discusting gas you can imagine. I can't remember when was the last time he smelled so bad and then he also started dragging his but on the floor and to that loose poop followed. I thought he it would take a few days to get used to it since the I didnt think the change was so drastic but yesterday did it for me. We could not stay in the family room withouth opening the windows because Sandy became so gassy. After looking in the net all night (till around midnight) I decided to take the unopened bags back to the store and changed them for a small bag of California Natural Lamb and Rice. According to the owner, the choice was a good one and that a lot of customers were bringing the Canidaes back. So I started feeding that to Sandy today, with his evening meal: 1 cup Canidae and 1/2 California Natural. When he went outside, the loose stool became part soft and part liquid, and I could definetely tell which one was Canidae (yellowish) and which one may be California Natural. I know I need to switch slowy but do you think I added too much California Natural in the mix? He usually gets 3 cups a day: 1 1/2 in AM and 1/2 in PM. Should I give even less per feeding next time? and will this help with the liquid poop I saw today? Sorry for being so graphic. Thanks in advance.
