    I have a 1.5 years old German Sheperd, he gets rashes and diarrhea if he eats chicken, beef, duck, bison, and lamb. I'm running out of options guys. Salmon seems to be the only protein that works. Does anyone have similar problems? What do you feed your GSD?

    Hey there, I am looking for Kibble brands that are just not good for German Shepherds / not good companies at all. I am currently feeding my GSD the Fromm kibble, and while it has been great, I believe Bear is starting to develop a chicken allergy. After an at home allergy test (obviously not...

    I’ve been feeding my puppy farmina which she hated and have been transitioning her to Purina pro plan. She kind of likes it but not crazy for it. I have been adding toppers to get her to eat like an egg, wet food, and goats milk rotating. Rarely she’ll eat it plain. She is a 3.5 month old...
