    I had to email my brother the Beneful link. I think he uses this. He can't afford the high dollar stuff. Any suggestions on a lower priced healthy food?
    I know I am going to get flogged for that, but I used Ole Roy lamb and rice when my Dalmatian had allergic reactions to Kibbles and bits and I was no longer able to buy the higher grade lamb and rice food. She looked pretty good to me

    Tractor Supply 4Health dog food. There were some recall issues this summer, but they're fixed. They get 4 stars on the dogfoodadvisor website.

    Thanks for the 4Health reminder. I used that for a while for my dogs. I will suggest this to my brother.

    Yep, there are SOME dogs that do not tolerate higher protein, but they are the exceptions, NOT the rule.
    This is what makes sense to me, a higher protein is always what I thought was preferable and healthy!

    I bought the Natural Balance tonight. Miss Mallie will be getting it at breakfast....I'm tempted to give her 1 kibble of the new stuff and increase kibble by kibble!! Although I'm sure you guys didn't meant that slow!

    ETA: Fingers crossed this works and reduces the amount of gas the little beast has!
