Have you thought of switching to raw - my GS didn't do great on home cooked ( diet designed by canine dietician as she has lots of allergies ) but has thrived on raw diet - slowly introduced - she is very allergic to chicken but does well on beef and tripe

Hi everyone, just wondering if anyone experience color differences in your kibble?
I am in the middle of transitioning my dog to dr gary's lamb and it was going good, then I got another bag and it was lighter in color and stool isn't as good. Don't know what to do now?

Hi I just like to mention that sweet potatoes, some dogs it goes right through them. I hope you find something that works. Did you try boiled ground beef and rice without sweet potatoes? if you didn't try that. Try what Middle suggested, mix a little dry food in.

Yes, with kibble, sometimes a bag does seem to be different in color. And yes, dogs with sensitive systems will often show an issue with that. I don't know if it has to do with the environmental conditions the bags were kept in, or if the air hit the kibble somehow. Better dog food brands can be better at the quality bag to bag. If you have a question, take it back up to the store and get a replacement.

Hi, yes I think that's what happened. Vet did tests and it came back negative for parasites (giardia) so this was probably with the diet. Besides it being different in color my dog new it was different and that's enough evidence for me. So I don't feed that brand no more. Thanks for the suggestion.
