shemeld135 Breeder was feeding Varick Earthborn Holistic® Great Plains Feast so I kept with it and he LOVES it!

wuneyewilly We feed our 5mo old Fromm LBP and supplement with: rotate salmon & cod oil, vitaminC, vitaminE, marrow bones, Excalibur, beef ribs, eggs, organic frozen peas/grn beans/carrots, cottage cheese or yogurt, etc. Our 2yr old rotates btwn 2 simultaneously of Fromm/Acana/Orijen and all the same supps with more raw. So far we have been extremely happy rotating various grain-free flavors from Fromm, Orijen and Acana.

How long does everyone feed 'puppy' kibble?

eddie1976E Since the ratio of calcium:Phosphorus should be 1:1, and calcium should not be too high, why do makers list "minimum" numbers for calcium and phosphorus. Shouldn't it be maximum?

my 15 week old GS puppy - picky eater?!?!

My 15 week old puppy gets tired of her food within a couple time of eating a few bowls. Cant I hold off of changing the food, and if she gets hungry shell eat? Or just be resolved that she's a picky eater and work with it?

any thoughts?: confused:

Wild Wolf My puppy Zenna is doing extremely well on a rotation of chicken, turkey, beef, pork and salmon with added Nupro Gold/Kelp/Seameal (I rotate these), extra omega fatty acids, extra acidophilus probiotics, and coconut oil daily. She has the most beautiful coat right now. She has had no diarrhea, or any issues really, from day 1. I think this is my new "puppy diet plan" for all my future pups.

GrammaD Wellness Core is working fabulously in my house. Nyx is on the puppy formula and Abby and Huxley the original. had a great sale on the canned Core so I stocked up and I rotate through the different proteins as a topper. They eat with gusto, stools are small and firm, coats look good.

Still flirting with the idea of BRB (raw) but with how well they are all doing - not sure it's worth the bother and extra expense.

After recieving the wrong info, I had to switch Draco's kibble again. However, I am extremely happy with the brand he is currently switching over to, he is being switched to Wellness Complete Health Deboned Chicken & Oatmeal Recipe.

I love Wellness it was great for Sinister and then I tried to cut back and save money so I switched Sinister over to TOTW, he has done well on that and I do like TOTW but IMO his coat looked much better and I felt much better when he was on Wellness Core so that is what Sinister is eating again.

AJmom I sent a message to them on facebook to see what the calcium/phosporus levels are on the Grainfree Active dog and puppy formula. I hope they answer.

Victor is a good food. It's not available around here but I have read about it. Just make sure whatever formula you feed has appropriate calcium/phosphorus levels!
