With my previous dog, a golden, I fed her First Mate http://www.firstmate.com which was excellent for her skin and coat..she was very soft. We had tried others, Iams, Pedigree and Eukanuba and Iams was pretty good, but I found First Mate to be my preference. We used Puppy Chow at one point, but honestly is should be called Poopy Chow as it made her stools loose all the time. I am going to feed my porti the same. It was conveniently delivered to my door too. Does anyone feed the RAW diet at all?
this summer i fed my labX using the raw diet(pepperdogz, out of bellingham, WA i think), and he absolutely Loved it. i mean, he was crazy for it. but since i moved back to tucson, i haven't found a local provider and i'm not interested in making it myself. he is now on natural balance and my pup is on innova.
Pedigree isn't very expensive and dogs really love it. *points to commercial* My cats eat Fancy Feast, Acana, and Friskies. My hamster eats Small Animal Diet with Seeds & Grains. Sorry, I just had to say that. -_-
