So far the drainage looks a lot better. Still doing the kibble....And just using the beef roast I cooked and cut up in small pieces for treats. I honestly think it was the chew sticks with filling that was flaring him up...They were made of raw hide and who knows what else. My youngest son (1 1/2) is always dropping and chunking food. He is Banes new best friend. Bane vacuums everything up...
He is on a rock fetish also....Always trying to eat rocks....

GSD eyes drain through their noses.... I had a GSD who had one eye that didn't drain. Went to a specialist, they ran a stitch trough to clear the passage, which lasted a day...
We never went back.. Just kept the eye clean.

I don't see how you dog trainers do it,...There really is a lot of stuff to know. I def want to learn these things, but I'm almost overwhelmed from all the reading and videos I've watched.....there is a lot too it and many precautions need to be taken to see how your dog is reacting to certain aspects of training....Dog trainers amaze me....They are like a shrink for dogs. They can sense what the dog is thinking, etc.

Correction....The Zukes treats I bought were Lamb with fresh blueberries, apples and carrots....They weren't chicken... Is Zukes better quality then Blue?
The choices of kibble I have in my town are Blue Wilderness, Taste of the Wild, Diamond, and a few others I can't recall.
Is it okay to feed him treats from I beef I cook? We get our own beef butchered, so some of our less favorite cuts, we boil and cut into treat sizes. I use these during marker training. It keeps him super focused using food drive for marker training....As he gets older, I will transition to his favorite toy, if I ever find out what it is,,,,,I have to study a little more on how transitioning this over,
I wish Acana and Orijen was available locally for me. But it isn't. The dog food advisor rates Blue Wilderness a 5 star, but I've read more good things about Orijen and Acana......If the Blue Wilderness Chix and rice doesn't work out, I will try Taste of the Wild Salmon. I plan to switch it up after each bag anyways. We started out on Eukanuba....After doing some research, I switched ASAP.
Do you guys and ladies ever use canned food for you GSD? What about adding an egg in 2-3 times a week?

We have been buying Blue brand Chix treats....A few days ago I bought Nukes (sp?) chix....That's all they had at the time,,,,Lastnight I boiled a roast and chopped it into pieces to use for treats.....
I've read numerous conflicts that people have had with Chicken....If it doesn't clear up, I will switch to a new meat source for his kibble. I think Blue makes a salmon based on,,..
The only place to buy quality kibble in my city is from Tractor Supply or Pet Sense...The Zukes treats were pricy....I thi they were $8.99.... Maybe it was $11.99..... Blue brand treats are $4-$6.... Depending on which one.....The cost doesn't bother me much, I want to feed him the best possible diet...Hopefully after he gets older, I can try the raw diet again,,,,I tired for about a week, but I was scared to death that I wasn't giving him the proper nutrients....I honestly believe it's the best choice....I will give it another shot down the road.
