doggiedad you may have to switch food a few times before you
find one that works for your dog. a bath may help
the itching.

msvette2u Welcome!
We've had very good luck with Kirkland signature for our puppies (in rescue) and also Solid Gold KIBBLE, not canned, and also Blue Buffalo.
You could try a squirt of Salmon Oil as well, not a ton but just 1 squirt a day, I think the brand is Grizzly, that comes in a pump container?

There are others, but these are just some of them. Bully sticks are ok, but no rawhides.

Lori, I find I get more responses when I am specific in the subject line. I'll fix it and hopefully you get more help.

Did you get a chance to go thru http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum/feeding-our-puppy/

gaia_bear If you enter "Nutro" in the search box above you'll get lots of threads that have comments on this food.

There are a lot of really good threads discussing the positives/negatives of different foods

New to forum (3 m old puppy with itchy skin)

I posted on the new members forum.. Had like 47 views, but no answers
My 3 month old GS was on Eukanuba large breed puppy food, she has itchy skin, no fleas... I've heard a lot of good things about Nutro dog food, so I switched.. Suppose to be great for the coat, skin, plus more healthy diet... Any thoughts on this please??
Also... I'm giving Addie bully sticks.. She loves them... Also am learning that rawhides aren't so good for them..

It's is are first time with a GS, we've had dogs before, but she is by far the smartest, and quickest learner. Thanks

Addie, our new pup (3 m old puppy with itchy skin)

Addie is our newest addition to our family.. We got her when she was 9 weeks old... She just turned 3 months old... We started her on eukanuba large breed puppy food... But I just switched to nutro large breed puppy food... She seems to love, the issue is that she seems to have itchy skin... No fleas. I've heard that this new food will be great for her skin, coat, and also just all around better food. Any advice out there???

Also bully sticks vs. rawhides... We've stopped giving her the rawhides and switched to the bully sticks. Thanks!!
