    Default taste of wild question

    So I got dozer on avoderm currently it is the puppy type(got a good deal on it), but his farts seem worse then when. I got him and he was on beneful. Also still having lose stools.

    Question is that does totw Pacific type with salmon in it also contain the oil from the salmon.

    It doesn't say on ingredients but it has salmon in it so I would imagine it has some trace elements of the oil.
    I wanted to put Dozer on Grizzly oil but If I could get it in his food that be great.

    Anyone know by chance


    Thanks Sean and Dozer

    I use TOTW Pacific Stream, the one with salmon. It works very well for my dogs and was the only food I found that my super allergic Zelda (RIP) could eat and not get lots of allergy issues.I don't know about the salmon oil thing though. Some here say the processing the food negates the salmon oil benefits, I don't know. In any case, I'd change the food and see how Dozier does with that change, it will take a couple of months to be sure it's done what you'd hoped, before adding any other changes to his diet. If you don't do the changes one at a time you won't know which had the desired effect or caused the new problem.

    Okay, so gas aside. The loose stools bother me, he is a puppy and that can be for a variety of reasons aside from the brand you are feeding him. One of the most common reasons for loose stools in puppies on here is typically the amount of food fed, how much and how many times a day are you feeding him? It seems the second most common for puppies, is actual medical issues (Giaradia, worms, etc) that can be resolved by a trip to the vets. Then you can look at food.

    As far as my two cents on food, I am cheap. I hate spending money. For Gunny, I bite the bullet and get the pricy food. I found what works and I am sticking with it. He is on Fromm Beef Friattia. Tried the Fromm Surf and Turf, got tear stains, back to Beef. I do the Grizzly Oil in his food, works great.

    I knew I forgot to mention something. it was late at night but I rescued Dozer they said he was about 3.5-4 years of age. I did recently just deworm him but that was two weeks ago and I also am about through the 30 pound bag of food. I figured his stool would firm up a bit. I use pumpkin sometimes and it works I just thought it was an upset stomach not this constant loseness. Also I got the puppy food for him because he is getting old and sometimes seemed to have a hard time with the bigger chunks of the cheaper stuff he was on. SOOOOO I dont know.and they have taste of the wild at my local feed store. and my parents just put our other two (three-legged) siberian huskies on it and they seemed to love it. Let me know and thanks for the replies

    The puppy food could just simply be too rich for an adult dog.

    TOTW is smaller than many of the chunk foods. Give it a try. The price is comparatively good too.

    I would change over his food! He must be allergic to something in the food. I would try something without chicken.

    the taste of the wild are all on the 4 star food list so not sure where you are seeing this. they were downgraded due to the many recalls they have had including one from just last year for salmonella. i would say the salmon one would maybe have some salmon oil in it but if they do ok on it then i would see about giving them outside salmon oil as it would be questionable as to how much would actually be in the food.

    Hi I would just like to add one thing about the puppy food. It's higher in calories and fat and protein, this could blow you dog up to a size XXL Lots of grain free foods are small in size, in fact most of them are. I'm thinking if he is getting old he should definitely be on an adult food program. We don't want his joints or anything else growing. Puppy food also has calcium in it. Small adult food kibble brands that I have found are Fromm all stages, Nutrisca, California Natural, Avoderm, Wellness, just to name a few, the kibble bag will generally tell you the size or picture of actual kibble. Let us know what you decide and always keep that plain canned pumpkin on hand, 1 tbls at one meal per day.
