    Angry Wellness not working out...

    I've been trying to switch Jelly to Wellness (whitefish and potato) for almost a month...as soon as I started adding the Wellness her poops became soft, and every time I try to add a little more of the Wellness to her old food her poop is runny...I think this is not going to work. She's on Diamond Natural Chicken and rice and her allergies are terrible, which is why I was trying to get her OFF the chicken. She has the bumps between her toes and licks constantly, she also has eye boogers at times, not all the time, but more then I'd like ...YUCK! I probably need to take her back to the vet again...her skin is getting a little stinky. I brush her every morning (which she loves) and I'm seeing white flakes and a lot of shedding
    Any thoughts on what food to try now? Any other ideas?

    A lot of people have problems with on Wellness. We had Gator on Wellness Puppy first and his were never firm which is one of the reasons we switched. I am not sure what you have available in your area but there are several foods out there that might work better. I use Fromm Beef Frittata and it works well for us.

    There is a good chance that if you find the right food, those problems will clear up. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress! We have to be with these guys.

    Yes many users here at EBN complain of soft poo on wellness. Check out our recommended dog foods and if you cannot find them in your area you can get them online for most of the time cheaper ordering through petflow with their free shipping. Even if you don't take advantage of the free shipping code, shipping is still only $4.95 which is about the same as paying sales tax.

    I highly recommend Fromm or Natures Logic, and natures variety salmon.

    Jelly's vet is the one who was "pushing" for a fish and potato food (and suggested the Wellness)...I assumed any meat food would/could be allergenic? Is that assumption wrong?

    What about Blue Buffalo...any problems? It's available at PetSmart...easy peasy.

    Do you use PetFlow as suggested by desertskybulldogs above? I'm in Florida and can't find it in stores.

    @love jelly, it is amazing what a difference food can do for your pup. Vegas had all the same symptoms as Jelly until we found the right food. Unfortunately it will be through trial and error, read the dog food section on this site it will be very helpful. I use Nature's Variety Instict Salmon and Petsmart does not carry it. I have a local feed store that orders it in for me. When you do find the right food it is like a miracle before your eyes, no bumps, no runny poo, no gooey eyes and most of all NO SMELL!!!

    BabyGirl use to eat Wellness Core and I switched her go Natures Variety Instinct Beef and Lamb and her poops are firm, no rashes and her coat has become thick and lustrous. My boy Wilson use to eat Royal Canin Bulldog and I switched him to NVI too and I can see his coat has thickened up too. Allergy issues have been cut back a lot. Seeing is believing!
