The vet suggested natural balance, I don't doubt him, but had to check here lol!! I'm thinking of just switching right over since his poop will already be loose from the enemas today, and I don't want to block him up by transitioning slowly. Is this a bad idea??
    Because he is already having issues and a quick switch can cause issues on it's own I would suggest switching slowly. You don't want him to be in more discomfort than he already is.

    Oliver and Sebastian are currently on Fromm (the beef frittata and the surf and turf), but because I just had to spend $128 at the vet today for meds for a double ear infection and infection in his folds, my vet suggested I try him on the NVI salmon flavor. So looks like I will be buying a bag of that to transition him over to. They almost have full bags left of both flavors and at $60 bucks a bag, I don't want to waste it.

    I'm in the same boat. I placed the order from petflo two days ago for my next delivery, but I have plenty on hand for about a month. Switching to the NVI salmon. will transition slowly all five critters. I believe the potato is getting to them. huh......... we shall see.
    Would really like to go raw, hubby says we have to many dogs. Will cause too many problems. Maybe he's right, I don't know. thought I could wear him down. No luck, and I'm tired.

    well since he is already on nvi you could try the limited ingredient lamb or turkey flavor. one protein one starch and less protein and such may help with whatever is causing this. but natural balance has been successful for many bully feeders here so good luck with whatever you choose. also some canned pumpkin may help but since hes been given an enema maybe you wont need it. hope it goes well.

    @Sherry @Kim Sebastian n Oliver If you are having so many issues with ear infections I HIGHLY recommend NVI salmon! It was amazing how quickly it helped clear up my Samson's ear infections where nothing the vet could prescribe for over 6 months could not clear it up alone.

    this is Oliver's first infection and I don't want to escalate into something chronic. His right ear has always collected more crud than the other, so I'm switching him over to NVI

    I feed Brooke the Natural Balance Alpha Dog: Trout, Salmon meal, and Whitefish formula. She's been on it since we brought her home from the breeder and she's been doing great for the most part.

    yep yep, that's what I ordered. It's not really ear infections per say, the girls are fine, but the two boys get one dirty ear each, a bit cruddy, just every now then. I catch it immediately, but it would be nice for them not to have any issues at all.

    If this Nature's Logic Lamb doesn't work out - this is where I'm headed next. Bea and Bo were both on Bison/Sweet Potato - and doing just fine - except Bo has a case of "Stink Head" - so (per the wisdom of this board), I was losing the potato part of the equation in hopes of controlling yeast (if that's indeed what the problem was). Too soon to tell with the new food since it's only been - 17 days (after today). After the hive scare yesterday, I'd put up with stink head to avoid that ANYTIME. I'd prefer to have them both on the same food - but again, I'll hunt bison or catch the salmon myself to avoid that hive thing again. *shudder*

    Our 5 month old stella is 36lbs and has been on Natural Balance Sweet Poatoe and Bison for 4 of those momths, her poops are firm and she loves the food, What's there not to like i'm not changing. I think Natural Balance LID food is a high quaility food good for dogs that are, or may, become alergy prone.
