well looks like i'm goin back to the petstore on payday (thurs) I'll use some wet food I bought that I've avoided using since its euka, but he just had some mixed with the SD he ate a nice portion pretty quickly...I'm definitely noticing that he is doing his best to avoid the SD... wish it wasn't the billing period for everything or i'd have some extra cash, but hey it is what it is!

I see so many 5 star brands guess I'll just buy 3 or for different types along with their respective wet foods and see what happens. thanks everyone.


more advise is welcome

Ask the folks at petco, but, I thought they told me I could bring back a bag if they didn't like it.

p-nut butter, sugar and salt. top his food off
with some can food or fresh meat, fish, fowl, etc.
if you give him canned fish use the kind in water,
no salt added. i'm always switching brands of food (kibble
and can). i mix and match his food. i use a lot of different
things as topping for his kibble.

Last time I was at the vet they warned me about raw feeding,they said it causes diseases in pets. Thats another reason for you that you shouldn't trust vets with nutrition advice. You gotta figure if you feed pets bad food you end up more times at the vet, its a win for them and a lose for you.

I'd like to thank everyone who's posted here, as well as via PMs for their assistance, guidance and advise, I 'm quite glad that I found this website as the members really seem to be genuinely helpful. I've decided to consolidate several Idea's, which I believe suit my budget, and just plain makes sense to me.

1. I have cut the peanut Butter out of the diet completely. (I'll will use it for treat at some point down the road, but I'll be going organic) But for now no more peanut butter.

2. I have decided that I'm going to keep at least 3, maybe 4 brands of dog food with their respective wet foods around the house, and simply monitor Barack's progress with all of them.

3. Being that I'm such a novice I will not be going with a raw diet, until I have plenty of time to do the necessary research that would make me comfortable enough to do so, or prior to Barack reaching adulthood.

4. I will continue to accept advise and tips from more experienced GSD owners, but will not rush to implement said advise until I have done my homework.

5. i will spend more time reading through these forums, along with other helpful websites in regards to keeping my boy's diet healthy!

Finally I'd like to again (for the millionth time lol) thank everyone for being helpful and understanding of my concerns. I will be sticking around these forums for years to come!

Happy Holidays all!

Age

PS: Barack has done well with the SD mixed with 1/4 of the Euka wet puppy Chiot and little bit of water these last 3 Meals. He's been eating the majority of of his servings and leaving about 1/8 of his bowl...so maybe I'm just giving him too much per serving. I'll continue to monitor him closely.
