    Default Anyone familiar w/ Dogswell Nutrisca???

    So I've
    been going through the whole food sampling thing with Samson, and ha
    ve come across one that's new to me..... Dogswell Nutrisca. The mom & pops petstore that I got it from suggested that it's fairly new
    but I'm not really sure if that's the case.
    They have 3 dry grain free/potato free formulas, Salmon & Chickpea, Chicken & Chickpea, and Lam
    b & Chickpea (I'm trying the Salmon due to Salmon's recent allergy and yeast issue). The line really has me intrigues and all though we've used it around a week, I'm feeling confident about it. It's similar to Nature'svariety Instinct in how it is grain and potato free, which is a plus for me as I've read a few things suggesting potatoes could have a link to yeast (if anyone knows more about this please share). The only 2 main differences I notice is that the Nutrisca has a slightly lower protein content and it smells and obviously tastesbetter as Samson will actually eat it (he hates the nvi salmon). I see the lower protein as a plus forbulldogs as they aren't overly active and mine's still only a 9 month old pup despite his HUGE size already. Another thing that I like is that they have a new raw freeze dry dinnerbite line that they ad
    vertise as a meal or treat. I also read about it on dogfoodadvisor.com and they rank it 5 stars with an "enthusiastic recommendation" and say that the it is an important food as it's "a low glycemic product making it a serious candidate for feeding diabetic dogs."I like everything I see so far and am curious if anyone else is familiar with the line, if so what do you think, and if not well, now you've heard of it and maybe it's your next dog food. And don't forget, if anyone knows anything on the whole yeast/potato thing, weather there's any truth to it, please let me know. Here are a couple links on Nutrisca.

    Oh, and I was told a
    bout a new grain/potato free wild
    boar &
    venison TOTW formula due out in May. Samson loved TOTW. I only changed to try and narrow down the search for what may have
    been causing him problems. This couldbe great, especially if there does in fact prove to
    be some truth to the whole potato/yeast connection. Any thoughts on this either?

    Sorry for the crazy lines in my post. I don't know why it's doing that and it won't correct itself when I edit it.

    yes i am familiar with dogswell nutrisca. ive fed it before and sarah did well on it. the only reason i changed was she was still having some paw issues and so ive wandered on to a few other things. i fed her the lamb one and i think maybe she was somewhat allergic to lamb so had i fed one of the others maybe a different outcome. my dogs loved the taste also. the only thing is there are no pre or probiotics on the food but if thats not a problem i would go for it. you can always give your dog some yogurt or acidophillus pills. let us know how it goes.

    I do add 1 tsp of non fat yogurt to his food at night already. Would anyone of you still suggest adding another or better form of probiotic and/or acidolphus? If so could you suggest where I would find this and maybe pro
    vide a crash course of what the
    benefits would be? I know that the yogurt is supposed to help balance the natural bacteria and things of that nature, but I don't think I fully understand the importance and extent of it's contribution in my bully's diet. Thanks!

    i do like this food. ive used it before. it doesnt have any pre or pro biotics but since you are already giving one it wont be a problem. if you think its the food you could try it.
