    Default Question about food

    I got a question...I am fostering a bullie puppy as of Saturday 4/16...it came to me with science diet puppy food...should I switch it? And if yes...what should I switch it to? My Cocker Spaniel is on Wellness Dog Food and he looks incredible now after being on it. He used to be on Purina One and his coat was just awful and thin. Would Wellness be good for a Bulldog puppy? I saw that Royal Canine has a Bulldog formula, but it is for adults. I would appreciate any help.

    We are working on a page for the site regarding this. Since there are hundreds of foods it will take some time, but hopefully we will have it done by the end of the week.

    I would switch to wellness food. My rule with my dogs is if it contains corn, its for cows, not my dogs.

    Wellness is a 5 star dog food (out of 6 stars) and Royal Canine is 3 stars (out of 6) according to what we found. These were both on their puppy food forumla. So the choice is obvious, Wellness! We are going to create a page like DSB said, so I better get to work! :p

    Guess what?! Science diet is only 1 star!!!! Their "natures best" formula is only 2 stars. This is what our vets are selling and recommending we buy! Why? Because they get a commission of course! Grrrrr..... If I were a dog I think I would bite!

    What is Nutro Natural Balance rated??? We tried to switch to Royal Canin and Diva did fine on it but Freckles had an allergic reaction so we switched back to Nutro Natural Balance and all is much better now.

    I feed Natures Recipie Venison formula and am kinda excited to see where that rates. I know its not a great foood though

    Jefferson, Do you mean Nutro Natural Choice by chance? Natural balance is a separate brand and is GREAT food for allergies.

    Thank you...I am looking forward to seeing this list. When you go into the pet stores, it is just overwhelming the amount of different foods and every sales person will tell you something completely different. I will go to Petco tomorrow and get a smaqll bag of Wellness puppy and start mixing it in. I hope she does well on it!
