Adult food choices/recommendations

Hey everyone,

Our pup is 1 yr old now and I want to start looking into some adult type food. Currently we use Blue wilderness for puppies but she does have runny stools. We use a probiotic, which helps a ton, but I think we need to switch. Lately it seems like she is getting bored with it as well.

Any good recommendations for an adult brand?

Thanks,

bobbo

Fromm, Orijin, and Acana are my top three.

If you're looking for a good kibble on a budget and have a Costco membership their Kirkland brand is quite good.

In the end, the best kibble is the one that your dog does well on and that you can afford

First choice is raw.
Second would be a brand called Lloyal.
I have a dog who HATES kibble but the only exception was Lloyal

My 2 do great on Fromms grain free surf & turf. My 7 mo always had lose stool on every kibble I tried prior until I switched to this. It's an all life stage food.
