To accomplish that I have taken a liking to Little Bites by Purina supplemented with lots of boneless chicken and choice-cut steak and eggs.

Blue Homestyle Recipe
Chicken Dinner with Garden Vegetables and Brown Rice

I felt better about this food decision when my soon to be sister in law was over a few weeks ago and said "oh you're feeding her Blue Buffalo now? That's what I'm feeding Tara" - She just passed her boards and starts at a vet clinic up in Grayslake in a few months
She's like a puppy dog prodigy

+ a bit of whatever we are having.. She had a bit of Joys Noodles Chicken Pad Thai tonight.. Just the Chicken part..

my dog was on Royal Canin, but had a bunch of skin problems/bald spots and bad gas, so i switched him to Iams small and toy formula, and now hes cuddly soft and no more bald spots, and a couple of his cysts went down as well.

We have tried a # of things.. Went back and forth with the vet about whether she had grass allergies or food allergies.. and to be honest.. we still aren't sure.

We settled on just feeding her chicken.. she seems much better.. but it's also winter - so other factors are involved..

Used to feed her Bil-Jac.. then she stopped eating it.. In the beginning we could use the bil jac food as training treats she loved it so much

We fed her avoderm for a while.. She seemed to like it.. but she gets excited about a food for a while.. then she bored of it and food strikes (which is bad.. as she vomits bile)

I have heard good things about Innova.. Havent tried that one..

We also contemplated and discussed the all raw diet.. but.. unless there was a clearly defined benefit.. We are on the fence.. It is much more difficult to maintain.. and very hard on them to go on and off of.. at least so I heard from a vet.. the people at the pet food stores disagree... I lean towards believing the person with the word DR before their name over the person who works in a pet store and was at some time a vet tech.. but.. I am not sure.. Vet's don't know it all.. and they can be sometimes wrong or misled as well..


Anyone else doing the raw diet stuff?

I know they have it at Wiggley Field up on Broadway (3400 block or so)

another vote for innova here. I've used it as well. good stuff imo. I think innova makes evo and I switched only because the store stopped carrying the innova for some odd reason.

We're running into the same problem with Diesel.
He was doing just fine on Canidae until a few months ago. Word is they changed the formula, but we're not sure thats what caused his difficulties. Since then, we've tried some ungodly expensive hypoallergenic stuff, Diamond, Natures' Recipe Easy digest, and Iams. He hated the Diamond. wouldn't even eat it.

Vet is clueless.
