i would continue with the new food. after a week or two with the
new food i would give my dog a little of the old food just to see
if he'll eat it and if he ate it now i have two brands that he'll eat.
Also, most of the premium brands will allow you to bring it back to the store for a full refund, even if literally you send it back empty. I started with Blue large breed puppy, and wasn't satisfied with her stool. The bag was half empty by the time I was ready to change and transitioned her to Avoderm. Brought it back to Petsmart no issues. Check the bag, most will say satisfaction guaranteed.
looking for other opinions on Earthborn Primitive Natural for a 4 month old GSD puppy?
she was on nutro when we brought her home with loose stools...thought it was just the transition to new home but I don't think it was all due to that. I then went to the Earthborn puppyvantage and it only got worse. I put her on 2 cups of Earthborn primitive natural a day and poop went solid in just a couple of days.
but others on the board have brought up a concern of the phosphorus / calcium thing. I am not sure what to try next. I don't want to set her up for hip/joint problems...but then I read in other threads that if they are going to have joint problems it's not going to matter. HELP!
I don't want to go back to the puppyvantage..we are just now getting a nice pooping routine down. I would consider changing to another life stages or adult food if I could find one that would work for stools too. I was all set to go get some Blue Buffalo and now see a bunch of posts saying dogs weren't doing well on that.
I am open to any suggestions. I just wonder if all food will have pros and cons to it and an owner just has to hope for the best sometimes. Seems like EVERY food mentioned as just as many people opposed to it as it does promoting it.
