This is GREAT news PD!

REALLY happy to hear that you are including some raw too!

Don't forget that you can rotate thru the other varieties to so that she will have a well rounded diet!

GSD Dad We tried Thor on Orijen, I think it was a little too rich for him. Switched him to the Acana Regional formulas (same company/quality ingredients, slightly lower protein level) and he has done wonderfully. Just my $.02.

Our dogs love this...we switched from blue buffalo wilderness formula when they were about 3 1/2 months old. A little pricier than bb wilderness but better ingredients and the dogs love it. We add a raw meal once a day....but that is just because we want to spoil them...:-)

doggiedad you may have to switch brands several times before you find
a brand that your dog likes and a brand that works for your dog.
my dog gets table scraps depending on what they are. i have no
problem with taking my dog to restaraunts and bars. when we eat
i often give my dog a little treat. he takes the food and goes to his
bed.

Katerlena I feed my girl Essex Cottage Farm Gastro Mix (she has GI issues)
You add the protein, oils and vegetables and mix it and bake it like a meat loaf (I use lean hamburger, sunflower or safflower oil and pumpkin and alfalfa)

The perfect all natural dog food: the ultimate fresh food diets for dogs!

my dog gets a lot of "human food". i can call him to the
dinner table and give him something and there's no problem.
we go to restrarunts and bars often and there's never a problem.
training takes care of a dog's manners when out and about and
at home.

PDFrogman thanks all for the suggestions
I will post when I decide

belladonnalily Another vote for THK (Embarq or Force if I cant get Embarq) and Raw (premixed chicken/beef & veg and turkey & veg, occassional duck, mackeral and rabbit...Elk has been the only one that didnt set well with him). I do a combo of the 2 and am very happy. Tucker had nasty poops all day long until I made the switch, and his coat is soft and shiny, teeth are perfect and he just seems healthier. Hes only 8 mo, but we have had ZERO health issues with him (hope I didn't just jynx myself!).

Also, he had runny eyes constantly as a young pup and was sometimes slightly itchy. Now I rarely see any discharge from his eyes (when I do, its just a tiny bit) and I never see him itch.

I also supplement with pumpkin, Salmon Oil, Krill Oil, Coconut Oil & Cosequin (alternating oils). And a few times a week we throw in a duck neck, sardines or an egg. And beef marrow bones or lamb femurs for entertainment.

I try to feed tripe too but my supplier has been out for a few weeks.

VERY glad I found this forum and made the switch.
