|Kyleigh||You're welcome! I'm so not a fan of commercial food (for me or my pets LOL) but if you're going to feed kibble, at least feed the best you can!|

What would I feed my dog if I went to raw food? And is it outrageously expensive?
Thanks for all the inputs guys, I'll do some research and check out all of your suggestions.
And I know it won't cost 200 dollars I was exaggerating..lol.

Here's a website that can give you some good information on dog food:

My vet doesn't promote kibble at all ... he prefers raw ... here's why:
If our cats (dogs) keeled over and died after they ate a bowl of kibble or a single can of commercial food -- as unfortunately many did in the massive worldwide 2007 pet food recall, and there have been dozens of recalls before and since then -- there would be no doubt about its danger. However, since it takes years to develop cancer and other degenerative diseases, most allopathic veterinarians never make the connection between diet and chronic disease. Put bluntly, commercial pet foods may marginally sustain life, but they don't promote health.

|shepherdmom||I know a lot of people don't like it but I used Science Diet lg breed for my shepherds for years with no problems. I usually switched from puppy to adult at about a year. Last year I added a non GSD puppy. He is not considered a large breed so I started doing a little research. I wanted something I could feed everyone.. So I switched to Natures Recipie easy to digest for all ages. My dogs like it and my wallet doesn't hate it too badly. LOL|

No not the country persay but the vet you go to. I've heard different opinions from vets as to when to neuter and spay to in Ontario (some say wait until 11 months, others like where I work, will recommend getting your pup spayed/neutered before 6 months). Just as well with the food they feed, my vets dont recommend feeding raw to any dog (dont want a fight over this), they prefer feeding dry food. Every vet will have a different opinion. Listen to them.
Thank you Kyleigh. I love your girl as well!

I don't think the country you live in has much to do with what age the pup should be switched foods ...
I'm Canadian, and I wouldn't feed any kibble to my dog ever ...
P.S. Piper's gorgeous!
