whats the best dog food i should get for my 8 week pom/jack?
There are many good foods out there including Innova and Calfornia Natural (www.naturapet.com). Merrick, Wellness, Pinnacle, and Solid Gold are also good brands.
what about purina?
Purina?? Malnutrition in a bag.
o sorry i dont have it ..i don't know..thats why im asking.....i was just wondering
Innova, check out the site gaddy posted above
There are lots of threads with information about feeding a pup, Lea. Mordy - and quite a few of us - recommend the Innova line of foods. You can feed a small puppy either the puppy formula or the EVO formula. Personally, I'd lean toward the EVO.
You'll want to read some of the threads though.
I feed mine Canidae. I've heard that Innova's a wonderful food, though I've never actually tried it.
How is Iams: Puppy Smart formula brand? We use to feed our pup Innova until we ran out.. and my mom bought this brand instead.
Iam's ranks pretty close to Purina; not that great.
Plus, Iams/Eukanuba operates one of the cruelest programs of animal testing in the industry. When you buy Iams, not only are you paying an premium price for non-premium food, it's going back into the pockets of those who practice animal cruelty.
Most foods you can find at PetSmart and Petco aren't that great, with the acception of Natural Balance and Royal Canin, though those aren't the best either.
Oh, I didn't know that. My mom just bought this brand because the price was high, so she thought it would be healthy for our pup. As for the testing on animals, I'm not going to support them by buying their food.. but now that my pup is eating this, how do I get him to switch foods at such a young age ?
First mix 10% new food in with 90% old food. The next day, feed 20% new, 80% old. Third day, 70% old food, 30% new. Keep going down like that until he's on the new food.
The best way to find if a food is high-quality is check the ingredients. There should be (preferably) no by-products, no corn, the first ingredient should be meat, and organic ingredients are a +.
iwhen i just change my dog food i change it. i did look at the threads before, i was just wondering if it would be any different because of how big and what type of dog..but i guess it doesnt matter...just asking thanx
i think ill get the innova , what about nutro's Natural choice thats what hes on now
Nutro is another one of those brands that charges like it's a premium dog food made from good ingredients - but it isn't. You pay a premium price for well packaged garbage.
