    Default Switching dog foods. Any recommendations?

    Currently feeding my dogs Fromms grain free. We have tried all flavors and Jovi particularly is very hard to feed. She shows no interest in eating... EVER. So I think maybe it's just the food? (nothing is wrong with her, as she goes to the vets regularly) she just doesn't care I guess... And Tali now who LOVES to eat all of a sudden doesn't want to eat her food. I think they may just be over this brand. So I want another high quality dog food. I think I want obviously the grain free, but I also want limited ingredients. Jovi has been scratch NON STOP and chewing at her paw so she may be allergic to something. I generally give her Benedryl but doing that three times a day is a pain. Does anybody know a good quality limited ingredient dog food? I actually was going to try Merrick, but then I heard it got bought out by Purina which is a HUGE HECK NO!

    Winnie has always done well on Orijen Six Fish. She loves it, but she would eat anything. I don't know how limited the ingredients are though.

    We just put Tyson on Orijen Six Fish - about 2 weeks ago, he loves it. Stinks, but he loves it

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Check out Dogfoodadvisor.com. Any time I have considered a brand of food, I look it up to make sure it has over 4 stars. The website also gives you a complete listing of ingredients.

    My babies eat Taste of the Wild, Bison.

    I used Earthborn Holistic for my boxer and she absolutely loved it!!! Wally eats Fromm's but if his tear stains don't clear up, I may give it a try w/him.

    We feed Merrick right now, and just heard about the Purina buy out. We're switching Effie over to Earthborn Holistic. They're a great company that uses awesome ingredients, and have never had any recalls

    You don't need to necessarily change foods. Why don't you try buying some Tripett and mixing it with the Fromm's? Or putting some broth or goats milk or something to make it a bit more exciting? Even coconut oil or salmon oil is enough sometimes.

    I recently, switched to Canidae bison flavor from Taste of the Wild. Canidae appears to be helping Pork chop digest better. I noticed , a difference in her. Canidae is more expensive than TOFW.
