Dog Food

I have went through the list of recommended dog foods that is posted on this page,however I am still very lost.

My doodle is 3 1/2 and has been doing well on a dog food however it is linked to DCM, so I know that I need to make a change. I have been told not to go grain free. My doodle does not do well with chicken or salmon, so that is a strike. Also he has been belching and it smells really bad.

Any dog food recommendations?

  • I just posted all this information in response to your comment in The Food Group, lol.

    Here it is again:
     

    Julie, there are no foods that have been definitely linked to DCM. We have discussed this extensively here and all evidence has shown that the grain free-DCM issue is baseless and in fact, an attempt by Big Dog Food (Purina, Hill's & Royal Canin/Mars) to undermine the success of the ethical pet food companies. To date, there remains not one single shred of evidence or proof of any kind of any link between grain free diets and DCM in dogs, despite the fact that it's been about two years they have supposed been conducting studies. All information to date has been purely anecdotal and in fact contradicts the actual numbers that they do have. 
    Most of us have chosen not to change our dogs' food. 
    However, if you want to go to healthy grain formula, I would suggest Fromm. Their Four Star line has about 8 forumlas that contain healthy grains, and there are many protein choices besides chicken or salmon.

  • I give my ddodle Stella and Chewy's!  He loves it. I buy the kibble and stew mixes.  He also really likes the carnivore crunch snacks from them!

    Pure ingredients as nature intended. Produced safely in the USA. Only the good stuff.
    • Stella & Chewy's is an excellent brand, but it can be very expensive as the sole diet. I use their meal mixer nuggets crushed and mixed into Jasper's kibble.
