WELCOME TO THE FOOD GROUP - This group was started in an attempt to present well-researched and FACT-based information on the amazingly complicated and confusing issue of feeding our dogs. There are also many issues we would like to explore. We thought it would be helpful to put all of these questions, information, and feedback into one place here on DK where everyone can find it, contribute to it, ask questions, and learn together.

Quick Q: Fromm 4-Star line

Started by Stacy. Last reply by Stacy Jun 4. 74 Replies

We've always talked about being able to switch flavors between the 4 Star line of foods without transitioning, but some of the flavors are grain free, and some of them are healthy grain. I've only ever fed the healthy grain formulas (not because I'm…Continue

Dear Food Groupies, In light of recent news about Champion selling through Petco, and the rumors that the company may be sold to Nestle-Purina, I think it might be time to change the photo in our Recommended Brands section. Cute as it is, if I have…Continue

Karen, you can do a hyperlink here, too. Like I showed you. LINK to Chicken Soup discussion.
Comment by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle on May 26, 2009 at 5:31pm
Actually, we do have a discussion here on Chicken Soup. You'll have to copy & paste the link, it doesn't work here in the comments section.
Comment by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle on May 26, 2009 at 5:29pm
It is kind of hard to ask & answer questions here in the comments section; you can do a search for "Chicken Soup" by clicking "view all" above, which will take to the discussion section, and then typing in the search box. Or, you can ask the question in a the Commercial Foods discussion up above, or you can start a new discussion on that topic, lol. In our recent survey, we did have 2 members who used CS for the DLS, there may be more who didn't respond to the survey, but they were not using the large breed formula.

Is anyone feeding Chicken Soup Lg Breed Puppy? It SEEMS like a good food...but is it?
Comment by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle on May 26, 2009 at 4:12pm
Jack used to love Pill Pockets, and it was so easy to give him pills that way. He would beg for them like treats! But then his crazy picky ways kicked in and he started spitting them out. So I have to put his pills down his throat every day, which we both hate. He spits them out any time he can, lol.

Oh ok, great, thanks Karen! Ya I checked out some of the forums, I still can't quite figure out if it's bad or not! Hopefully I hear back from Dianne!
Comment by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle on May 22, 2009 at 9:22pm
Dianne Carter feeds Acana, she highly recommends it. I think it's in those links I gave you and also in the Commercial Foods discussion. Click on "View All" right above, and then do a search in the discussions for Acana.
Comment by Amanda and Wheatley on May 22, 2009 at 8:58pm
Anyone on here use Acana for their puppy?
Comment by Susan on May 10, 2009 at 10:24am
Hi Michele, I use Taste of the Wild and it seems to work well with both of my dogs. I started Lola on it because she seems to have a delicate stomach where grains are concerned. Marlow loves it too. We use the Bison and Vension flavor, but they love the salmon one too.
