I called Hills up and during a long conversation they finally admitted that they had tweaked the formula - supposedly they did not change the ingredients but they increased the amount of protein. This change was made in May 2016. In June 2016 our dog started puking/diarrhea. Three days ago after another trip to the vet and a discussion about the food I decided that I was going to try making food for our dog instead of feeding him the z/d. I have been feeding him a mix of browned chopped meat (beef), diced potatoes, peas & carrots and olive oil. He has not puked or had diarrhea at all in the past 3 days!
The dog food for your GD should contain a healthy source of fat. Though fish oil is the rich source of fat, vegetable oil will be more suitable for GDs. You should also include carbohydrate in his diet, which is vital for his energy. You should not select a product that contains too many by-products in the ingredients list.
