I would not assume that all parasites have been eliminated?

Two of my three dogs have been allergic to peanuts...

I have my loving and loyal Fritzon Vom Heidknapp eating Royal Canine, but are starting to add in portions of a raw diet. I would like him to be on an all raw diet with herbs, organs, and good cut meats within 2 months. It is something I wish I would have done with our Shelby who is a German Shepherd/Pittbull and aging fast. She is now 10 years old and I think she would have done a lot better at this age if we would have done our research sooner.

My GSD is 8 months old. I switched her from Science Diet to Blue Buffalo Grain-free about 2 months ago. Lately, I have read some scary reviews about this dog food. The only problems my girl is having is that her breath now smells like a dead fish and she poops less but strains more. I feel like I should switch her to another grain free, but I am so confused on which to choose. So many options!!!!!

Suggestions Please?

Thanks so much.

Thank you for all your suggestions/comments/advice!

We officially switched Dexter over to Wellness Large Breed Puppy for a few weeks.. maybe even a month at this point and he has been in better health than ever before! His ears cleared up, his stool is normal, and we have no had any issues (except for a few times when he ate something he was not allowed to).

So, I REALLY appreciate all of your input. Now I just need to figure out what the problem is that he's allergic to.

My son and his girlfriend adopted a puppy this week. He asked me about kibble but I know nothing about it since I feed raw.

So, what puppy food is recommended? Which adult food can be fed instead? My understanding from several sources is that adult food can be fed as long as the calcium ratio is acceptable.

Midrange price that would be available at most pet stores. He's currently in the Cambridge OH area.

I fed Drs. Foster & Smith adult to my puppy. It's available via internet. Once she got older, I switched to Best Breed Working Dog formula for the youngster & Senior for my Mr. Geezer.(another phone call or internet purchase) Drs. Foster & Smith is/was carried by some Target stores, too. I really like the ability to place a phone call & have the food delivered.
