Are The Flavor Options Just Dog Reference?


Recommended Posts

I am looking to change my hounds food from 4Health Grain Free Large Breed to either Diamonds Natural or American Journey as i have hear good things on both. He has seemed to always skip multiple meals once a week or two and i was wanting to change to see if it helps. The 4Health is Turkey based, so i was thinking i would switch. Is there a flavor that most dogs seem to like better or is it each dog just different. I see there is Salmon, Beef, Chicken, and Lamb. Thanks in advance.

Depends on the dog. Most of mind would eat any protein but every dog I've had loved fish. I switch between chicken or turkey and salmon of the same food. It was Pro Plan with Buddy and Maggie Eats Nature's Variety grain free as she just really likes it - especially the salmon and sweet potato.variety.

Grace prefers chicken to the fish variety of her kibble but I've found that she likes a spoonful of tinned pure pumpkin puree mixed in which has the added advantage that it helps firm up her stools.

Is canned 100% Pure Pumkin the same as puree? I give my dog a spoonful of non fat non flavored yogurt and have consider switching to the purée as well.

Yes I it is. Once opened it keeps for 1 week covered in the fridge

If you're looking to make a change, check out the posts on this part of the forum about DCM, and if you're interested there is a good science-based group over on facebook - Taurine-Deficient (Nutritional) Dilated Cardiomyopathy that dives deeper in some new issues that have popped up with the explosion of dog food brands/varieties. Just food for thought ;)

If you have an Aldi grocery store in your area, pure pumpkin puree in my Florida city is only 79 cents per 15-1/2 ounce can and much more so at Publix and Winn-Dixie (not sure about Target or Walmart because don't shop there).
