Switching Food Due to Possible Allergy
I currently have my German Shepherd on ProPlan Active , and she seems to have had a slight allergic reaction to it. Her ears were red and she was itching them constantly and she also had a discharge coming from her eyes. My vet put her on Prednisone and told me to see if that cleared it up, but it didn't as of yet because she still has a slight discharge coming from her eyes that I have to wipe off each morning (small crusty type discharge). She also had to have her anal glands expressed and I'm thinking the food is to blame for that as well.
At this point I want to change food since there are much better foods out there than ProPlan. My vet recommended Purina, but I am hesitant because Purina is not the best food brand on the market. The two foods I was considering was Canidae Gain Free and Taste of the Wild. While they are both good foods, being affiliated with Diamond worries me due to the amount of recalls they have. I'm not eliminating them as options, but I am skeptical. I was also considering Merrick as well. Does anyone have any advice or any recommendations of a good food for a German Shepherd?
