Thanks for the headsup. He won't eat the food with it in it, anyway. Sigh.

I got a dog for my husband. It was a good trade.

He does have digestive issues, he always has. I had him on Wellness simple solutions and they changed their formula so I switched to California Naturals. I watch what is in the food so that none of his allergens are in it and I only give him duck breast treats as he is not allergic to duck. I did buy fish oil pills at Petsmart but now I'm wondering if I should just buy human ones if they are better regulated. I have been punching a hole in them and putting them in with his food. I have noticed a difference in his coat as it seems much shinier and healthy. He hasn't been scratching quite as much and I'm pleased with the results so far.
