Great now I don't know what to feed Xena. I just brought a new bag of Diamond Naturals Lamb-GF adult Large Breed. But I have noticed that lately her poop is not as sold anymore.

I don't know what to feed her.

I'm not sure why I would know that??

The grain free fad took off after the wheat was contaminated and many, many dogs died.

Interesting article
I donít think I will feed my dogs corn. I did go to Fromm grain dog food which has lots of grain so not feeling much better. I do supplement with fresh meat and there is tAurine in the food. I did notice maxís nose is less dry from switching to grain free to food with grain.

Just supplement with taurine. NOW has powdered taurine you can just put on their food. It's inexpensive. Keep it refrigerated.

Feeding a raw diet is no guarantee to have enough taurine either. It depends on what meat is in the diet.

It's water soluble. Any your body doesn't use will just wash out

Processing with heat with water apparently dramatically reduces the natural taurine in meat and eggs, so that may also have something to do with the kibble problem (as the natural taurine sources are degraded by processing: first boiled in the rendering pot, and then steamed in the extrusion machine).

Yes, taurine is sensitive to both heat and exposure to air. It's why I don't grind the hearts for the cat food. They've been adding taurine to cat food for years so any dog food with ADDED taurine should not have issues.
