    Default Anyone know or use Great Life grain and potato free food?

    Just wondering if anyone has tried any of these formulas of Great Life dog food...

    Had my Schultz at the dermatologist/allergist vet last week (takes months to get an Appt.) and she pulled yeast off of his right ear, all four paws, chin and belly.... So we are treating for yeast.

    But I'm now thinking I shouldn't be feeding him any grains or potatoes to feed the yeast.

    I came across this brand and I had never heard of it before...it does have a 5 star rating with dog food advisor

    no i havent fed this but i was looking real hard at it recently. i think one kind would work for sarah. i was also looking at a couple of the supplements. kinda checking it out to see what people are saying about it. it looks very interesting and they do have one kind great life rx forumula or something thats for low carb needs which is what yeast needs. i would def consider feeding this to sarah. also there is a site nzymes.com that has alot of info on yeast. ive never used the stuff they sell but maybe worth a look. also i use a yeast shampoo on sarah twice a week and soak her feet also. if your interested in this let me know. if i find out anything about this food ill let you know.
