Jmoore728 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....

dcg9381 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.
It's easy and lean, the thing with GSD's is that they cant have too much fat because it can cause issues with pancreas.

The Zukes treats are cheaper online 1 lb bag for 7.99 on amazon and we make it last a while!

If might not be....I will give it a couple more days. If no changes, I will be donating another $50 bag to the rescue folks. What do you think about Taste of the Wild Salmon? Is it grain free....If I have to, I can always order some online.....

Jmoore728 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?

Jmoore728 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.
