    Puppies need protein as they build their muscles and expend tons of energy, but generally as all dogs grow their need for protein diminishes. Based on Daisy's yeast infections in her ears, we're going to avoid grain entirely (as well as potato) and settle with Nature's Logic or Nature's Variety. A local store carries both brands and we're taking a trip their today to check it out.

    @kcdaisy Nature's Variety Instinct is the ONLY food I know of that is grain and potato free. I'll tell you if you are having problem with yeast in the ear I suggest Natures Variety Instinct, after switching that it ended 6 months of back to back ear infections in Samson. It was amazing, I wish I would have switched sooner.

    @TessaAndSamson No doubt with Natures Variety! We've had her on it for about 10 days now and it appears that she's already benefitting from the switch. She scratches at her ears MUCH less, and she seems less itchy on her skin. She would frequently scratch her sides, or when you scratched her she would moan in pleasure. Although she "itches" less and appears to have less concern over her ears, she still moans when scsratched, and LOVES her tummy rubs!

    high protein is essential for pups, although, you don't want to go overboard. We try to feed our pups a high protein low grain or grain free food for the first year then transition them to a lower protein large dog diet, except our pug of course... he's on a regular dog diet, not the large dog.

    I get so confused on dog food topics. Jozi is still
    on Iams cause I don't know what else to buy her.
    I'm not going to put her on Fromm. I can't get
    it anywhere around here,and want something that
    I can easily get in case we forget to order and run out.
    @bfletch13 did you ever switch from Iams? You really gotta get her off that stuff! Even if you choose to get from Petsmart, you can at least get her on Avoderm. In fact, we have coupons in the bully market that you can use your bully bucks for to try it for free. But I still recommend Fromm the most, and you can get it from petflow, set up auto ship and you will never run out. Coupon code ENGLISHBULLDOG, free shipping over $59. One bag would probably last for well over a month I would guess for one puppy!

    @desertskybulldogs Yes she is on taste of The Wild, Sierra Mountain Formula.
    She is doing really well on it. Her definitely got better when she got
    off of Iams. We only fed her threw one bag of Iams. She is on her 3rd bag
    of ToTW now.
