Welcome, welcome!Hi everyone, I just ran across this forum while looking for another option for my pup. He's a cockerspaniel/poodle mix and he's 8 months now. He has been on Royal Canin mini puppy 33 since he was 10 wks, before that he was on royal canin baby, the transistion was seamless. now after a little research i'm noticing that there may be better options for him. i'm afraid of him having a harsh reaction but i think i'm leaning towards switching to blue buffalo which seems healthier and more cost effective than royal. any suggestions?
also i was thinking about adding wet food to his diet as a treat every now and then. when is a good age to start doing that?
thanks for any help or suggestions u may have!
I totally agree with what CorgiPaws had to say...and I second the Wilderness line recommendation. Wellness Core is another good one. A lot of us around here are advocates for more grain-free diets as I'm sure you'll soon find out. lol
As for adding some wet food, it would be just fine to add at any age, however I'm not a huge fan of it. In my opinion, it tends to make the dog more picky and sometimes will result in the dog not wanting to eat dry anymore. Plus, to me, there just isn't a need for it when you have a healthy dog. ONE EXCEPTION: I do like the supplemental feeding only canned meats. They're a great, easy way to add some extra meat to their diet. These can also cause the dog to lose some interest in kibble, but so long as you're strict and feed the two separately, you should be fine. :smile:
Surprisingly enough, the first result that pops up on Yahoo when you search for 'dog food forum' is this little community. :smile:Well first off, welcome to the forum! Glad you found our little community.:biggrin:
