I second this. Berlin was on TOTW dry kibble at one point, and his stools were HUGE. It was gross.

I feed the sensitive stomach formula as my Senior tends to have problems with a lot of things. It is the one that is good for dogs of all ages so I switched my puppy to it as well. Both have smaller less stinky poops. The food smells fresh when I open a new bag it doesn't have that nasty dog food smell. My whole pack love it and gobble it right down.

I don't have any advice but I wish you much luck!

After many trials I have found the only kibble my boy likes is TODF aka The Other Dog's Food. He will snub any kibble in his bowl but if I put it in my other dogs bowl he eats like he has been starved for days.

I dont want this thread becoming a Orijen battle. Trust me I tried Orijen and all it did was give both dogs runny poop. I have to sit there and hand feed them sometimes just so they eat, so obviously they dont like TOTW. I am begging for some serious help here. I want nothing but the best for them so they remain healthy.....Thanks in advance Jerry
I feed Taste of the Wild too and I have to say they are not thrilled. We mix in crap food to get them to eat it. Which is ironic because we feed that for their health but give them junk food to get them to eat it.

I was fed up too. She would nibble this one, diarrhea from that one, etc. I FINALLY found one they all love. HALO. My girl would eat it all! After a few months on it she filled out. She looks wonderful and healthy. I couldn't be more pleased

My Buddy is 11. He just had his senior blood work done. The vet says he looks great and is doing wonderful for his age. So it seems to be working ok for him.
