Hi Bianca... Good to hear the Molly has settled a bit for now....and I hope you gave Coop a talking to for scaring you like that.

Food is difficult isn't it. I bought some TOTW for Kobe to replace the dry I ruined with the liquid herbs...he didn't like the salmon one but will eat the Bison one.

I also know what you mean, I feed a fairly decent dry food to my others as a base, I have noticed its expensive feeding Kobe all meat and veggies....given the meat volume needed to maintain his weight. I also am reluctant to use any RMB's with the tumour he has. Owning a large breed dog has its drawback sometimes......much cheaper to feed the little ones....

I don't really have anything to add, but wanted you to know I stopped by (haven't been reading forums much) to catch up on Miss Moo. I am sorry it's still a struggle, but hope you can find an answer!

I don't think there is a good answer frown I have never been lucky with any kibble, so I'm really no help. I would go with the freshest that you can get, since older kibble is more likely to grow stuff in it. (Thinking about shipping I guess....)

Grains....while canidae is grainless, it probably is high starch because it contains potatoes. If you can find a food that has similar amount of meat content, but, say, is rice based, that may be just as good, sometimes better, depending on the dog. To me, the important thing isn't so much that it is grain free, but that it has the most meat content, which tends to occur in grain free versions. However, I have never found a feed store food that has high meat content.....so, you are probably stuck, and even more frustrating since she seems to be doing so well, and you really don't want to rock the boat when things are working!

Thank you all I appreciate it hugging

I have no idea what to do about food and now my head isn't in it due to Coops upcoming surgery (will update his thread).

Considering how well she is doing on the food overall, and what you will be managing with Copper, I think I would be very hesitant to start messing with the food. My only preference for a trial would be no kibble for a seizure dog, but that's not an option, understandably so! Living on an island is incredibly expensive!

I hope that she maintains hugging

You can take it yourself--it's great for allergies, colds, etc. I take some every day.
