My fiend and I were at a pet shop looking for toys and a woman approached us about some fabulous dog food they were selling. I declined as my Vet reccommended Eukenuba (as my one Pom is very finicky) and she said that usually works with finicky eaters. Everyone has thier favorite I know! But it got me thinking, is that the best food for my dogs?
I have two Poms and a Black Lab, so they are all on the same brand just the versions that cater to their size. Anyone reccommend a dog food that would be the best for all three dogs? Nutrition, coat, life span etc etc is why I want to know.
:) Exactly. I can't wait to see pictures, it's true that pomeranians are a very addictive breed. I'd love to have another one, but I'm only 14. So that's a no-go with my mom, she says Max is enough! LOL.
If you look in the ingredients on eukanuba, it's pure crap. That's why natural balance improves skin, and coat, because it's natural/organic ingredients and vitamins. I also mix his food with olive oil to not dry out his skin. Sometimes he would get a little flakey after a bath, but not anymore with NB.
Thanks, I'll update his dogster soon with more pics. But I agree it looks adorable!
I'm mature for my age, and in full care of Max, full responsibility, which I love, although it's not always easy. I learned about the dog food from none other than this forum! The secret behind Max's flakey skin was all in his diet, and I read up a lot. But, reading, and coming on forums sure does teach you a lot!
Max is an energetic powderpuff as it is, having two would be complete chaos. But I'd love to have a papillon pal for him, that's my goal.
Both my pom and my yorkie eat (and love!) Canidae. It is small bites and they have chosen it out of several all natural brands. My yorkie used to be very picky but he eats his kibble with gusto since we switched almost a year ago.
My Min Pins eat Artemis small breed blend. They love it and do very well on it. It has tiny kibbles. We also mix in some Solid Gold which is also a high grade food.
The others mentioned above are good too.
The Eukanuba is what we started on and switched when Georgie started getting the runs. Our vet said that Eukanuba is a little rich and can cause gas. Plus after reading on this site, I realized it is not as good as these other foods.
Thanks for all the food tips! I am thinking in my head about our pet stores and do not recall seeing any of the brands you are mentioning. I have written them down so I can verify that this weekend. I think Minpinmom said the gas issue on Eukenuba! OH LORD YES! So that is culprit!
Heritage! How pretty!!!!!! My Mom has been talking about wanting one of these dogs. Now I see why. The feet are amazing and those ears..how can you resist them? ;-)
