That is not an easy question to answer. We feel that every dog is an individual and
what works for one, may not for another. Remember to avoid the ingredients CORN WHEAT
and SOY as they are potential allergens. Keep that in mind when choosing canned food
and treats as well.
When changing formulas, it is a good idea to feed ½ of your dog’s old diet with ½
of the new one for a few days to gradually get the dog’s system used to the change.
It can also be beneficial to add a bit of cooked white rice or canned pumpkin during
Know that chronic ear infections, continual skin problems, licking, eye rubbing,
excessive eye tearing, and generalized itchiness can all be food related. Whether
it’s an actual allergy or just intolerance to a particular ingredient, simply changing
a dog’s diet can at times help to avoid costly vet bills.
We carry limited varieties of Holistic Select Food Nature’s Variety Instinct and
Nature’s Logic here at Eclipse. We do this simply as a convenience to our customers
and because it is what we’ve chosen to feed our own animals.
Eclipse Dog Grooming does not advocate one brand over another. We realize that every
dog is unique, so it may take time to find a food that works best for your dog. If
you are having any chronic health problems with your pet, we urge you to slowly experiment
with different brands of food. Make sure to transition gradually and give each food
at least 2 months to see improvement. Stop the transition immediately if the problem
increases or new problems arise.
If you are having difficulty finding a food that works for your dog, we have suggested
this testing to our clients. It is not an allergy test, it is a test for sensitivities.
It can be an aid in your search for a food your dog can tolerate.
