    Okay, this is going to sound kinda weird probably, but :p

    About 7 months ago we switched the dogs from PMI High Pro (Basically Purina) to Canidae ALS.

    Now, I have seen NO CHANGES! The only thing that has changed some is that Lizzie's stool is not runny, but not firm still. :confused: No coat or teeth or breath changes. Also, Major's coat seems to be getting worse and worse...any recommendations for that?

    Is this maybe just because this food is not working?

    I am going to be changing over to a grain free food in the weeks to come.

    What is it about Major's coat that is bad?

    I agree that different foods work differently on different dogs. Canidae may not be the best choice for your gang and you will only know if you try something else. :)

    Major's coat has just gotten worse and worse...it's not curly like it (it lays very flast now and has gotten gray, and I know that is just age, but it happened fast) was and it's not soft. Very dull.

    Hmmm... I noticed huge changes when I switched Kai off Purina. I don't even feed the very best food. The vet is advising me to keep him on Natural Balance until he's diagnosed and his coat looks a million times better now than it did when he ate Purina...

    I guess I would just suggest that you either try something else or try adding a fish oil supplement.

    I was supplementing with Fish Oil and Vit. E. I probably should start that again.

    I think I may have found the problem. A few months ago I was giving the dogs Canned EVO and Innova Senior, plus fish oil and Vit. E. His coat was thriving then....:) He did very well on the Canned EVO. I will just start him on the EVO again.

    Okay...should I feed him the Senior Innova or just the EVO and RM? Are there any benefits to feeding the senior food?
