    We posted at the same time :)

    Purina isn't any better. Before the recalls, I would have recommended Diamond because it's inexpensive and corn-free. Now, I'm not quite sure what is in the price range of the more unhealthy foods that offers a better nutritional value.

    I'd steer clear of anything manufactured by Diamond. Recalls.

    Check out www.dogfoodproject.com. Mordy's info will show you how to read labels, what to look for and what to avoid so you can make a good, informed decision on your own that fits within your budget :)

    One thing to look at is the calorie/nutrient content. The more nutrient dense, high calorie foods take less to feed and are often significantly less expensive in real cost than "cheap" foods!

    Thanks for the links. I didn't know not to take him anywhere for awhile. That's a really helpful tip, because right now he barks at anything bigger than him. I'll look into some good food and treats.

    This. I feed kibble and raw together quite often, and I've never had an issue with my dogs, nor any of my foster dogs.

    I switched his food yesterday, and also got him some canned food. He seems to be eating a lot better, so I'm starting to think he just didn't like the Science Diet. No worries there, that stuff was too expensive and smelt awful.

    Once you start learning to decipher all the misleading stuff on the labels you know why the stuff stinks!

    Glad to hear he is eating better now :)
