i'm feeding him mashed potatoes, boiled chicken and canned food, need to get him on dry, have bought one, how slowly do you do it, he gets total of 2tbsp 4x/day, he's only 2.8lbs, i'm doing 2tsp chicken 2tsp canned, 1 tsp m. potatoes, 1 tsp. new dry food, i have to be very careful, he's had formed bm's x3 days for first time since i've had him for 3wks, i substituted one of the tsp of mashed potatoes for dry food, is this slowly enough.
do it that way for a few days then subsitute one of the tsp. of the other stuff for a tsp of dry for a few more days, and so on for a total of maybe 2 weeks and he should be on dry only. what food are you feeding him that is dry?
It seems like you are doing everything right. My corgi has food allergies, so we put her on the natural balance venision and brown rice and she seems to be tolerating it well. Natual balance seems to be good food for dogs with allergies. Good Luck.
Sarah, what sort of allergies does your corgie have. My poodle gets itchy feet. I think thats what it is. Or her feet are bothering her from her arthritis. I was thinking of changing to natural balance. I know she likes it. I tried some sample bags and she took her time eating the califonia natural, but loved the natural balance. I think I need one more bag of Innova till I get my free bag. Or I get the free one next. I may just get the innova as the free one and pay for the natural balance and give the innova to the shelter. How is that handled. For your free bag, do you have to pick the same food you have bought? Its the by twelve and the next bag is free. It actually ends up making all the other bags less expensive.
She had itchy paws, watery eyes and loose stools with her old food (chicken soup). The vet recomended a dog food with less ingredients, so she said to try natural balance. Her coat looks alot better and her poops are firm, and best of all she isn't pooping as much. The chicken soup seemed to have to many ingredients like milk powder and egg product. My other dog did well on the chicken soup, but Lucy did not. She has a very sensitive stomach.
