WholeHearted All Life Stages Dog Food - Grain Free Salmon & Pea
Is it OK to feed a puppy a dog food claiming to be suitable for “all life stages”?
Yes, about a month ago my 10 year old australin sheperd first started to not want to eat. So I put yogurt on it. Then he would eat some. But he always had yellowish loose bm. But then it was getting worse. Then my female began to have smelly gas and then she had the diarrhea. So I did the 24 hour rest of food. The slowly brought them both back on their food and was still not good. My male who is the 10 year old began throwing up. I then realized something is not right. My dogs have been eating this since they were pups. Something is not right. I again slowly tried to introduce the kibble by even grinding up the kibble. Again throwing up. I believe the product has really did a number on my 10 year old. He now is doing home recipe. And doing fine. I am nervous to try another kibble but yet studying everything so I can make sure he is getting all his nutrients. But last week I was up for hours holding him and making sure he was drinking water after his last episode of eating the kibble from all stage. So something is not the same.
after 3 weeks I think I have finally found the food for my 2 year old pits. I used to feed them puppy chow for the first year then pedigree and finally Retreiver mini chunks because it was $18.99 for a 50 pound bag. My boy who weighs 75 pounds ate it up but his poop was very smelly and had to poop 3 to 4 times a day. My girl weighs 55 pounds and after a while I noticed that she was always sleeping, itching and had a bad skin reaction. Luckily I found this site and did research on different foods. The old foods had corn as its main ingredient. The last 3 months I switched from Iams diamond naturals to authority to authority grain free. Her skin started getting better with diamond naturals but my boy still had bad poop with each one, even the grain free food. I decided to try Canidae because it had probiotics for his stomach. Now after 3 weeks he is back to pooping once morning and night and my girls skin is alot better. She is no longer sleeping all the time, she is full on energy now. Hopefully I dont encounter any problems in the future, but so far its good. Now I know to spend more money to make sure my dogs are healthier instead of trying to save money.
