Hello All!I know it is out there in another post because I read it a while back, but can someone please provide me with the website for dog sitting...I am not sure if there is more than one reputable site, but I would like to take a look as we are going away for 4 days for 4th of July weekend and we would like to house Archie with a great family as we are not fans of boarding him. We are located in Baltimore, but I am sure all the sites out there have people in all locations. If anyone has any great suggestions that would be fantastic!Thanks!SamSee More

Food for Archie

Hello everyone!It has been quite a while since I have posted, but looks like Archie's habits and eating issues have not subsided (well a little). I have a few questions, so hopefully some people have some ideas they can share or at least some helpful recommendations.  Archie has been on Acana for about a year now (He is 2 and a half year old goldendoodle) after switching between several different brands. At first, Archie was not really eating and I was a little conceded as to why I was spending so much money on a food my dog isn't getting overly excited about. My last Vet said that there was not much to worry as Archie may be just a 2 cup and once a day eater since He was rarely eating twice a day and he warned me about over feeding.  With that said, I start a with a new Vet next week and have an appointment with them, so I will ask similar questions then, but figured I would start here first.Since being on Acana things have improved slightly, but nothing drastic. Archie still only…See More

Thanks for letting me know. I know, it is a huge sum ( I cannot let my hub see your comment, lol!) but I wasn't able to find much cheaper and reputable, I think you got very lucky at $400!!! We already put deposit so we are done but it does kill me to pay so much. i'd be interested if you have any specific reccs. Thanks again!

Archie is on meds right now,  correct? I would wait until he is done with the meds - you don't want to confuse his tummy any more than it is.  Once he is done with the meds and cleared of any other tummy upsets, I would cold turkey change since you are going to the grain-free giving him the pumpkin or unflavored yogurt as you get him used to the new food. Do wait to change though because his tummy is upset enough.

At 7:35pm on February 23, 2014, Nancy, Ned, Clancy, and Charlie said…

If he is having a tummy upset, you can give him some unflavored yogurt or canned pumpkin (not the pie filling) with his meal.  Did you switch to Acana's grained or grain free?  If you switched to grain-free, there might be some tummy upset and lots of gas as their system adjusts.  When we switched over, it took a couple of bags before the dogs were not gassy.  It might be worth it to just switch him over and get him off the Science Diet; just add the yogurt or canned pumpkin.

At 3:07pm on February 23, 2014, Nancy, Ned, Clancy, and Charlie said…

Thanks for the friend request.  I have to say that Archie is one of my favorite doodle names.  It really suits them.

At 6:20pm on February 22, 2014, Nancy, Ned, Clancy, and Charlie said…

I would go with the best food I could afford.  I think Fromm or Acana are "better" than the two I suggested previously.  We 'bit the bullet' and started feeding our dogs Orijen.  One of ours had some serious skin issues, so we switched from a different recommended one, just to give him the best possible Omega balance.  Some dogs have more sensitive tummies and one brand doesn't set as well as another - even though both are quality kibbles.

At 5:18pm on February 21, 2014, Nancy, Ned, Clancy, and Charlie said…

Hi Sam, I can't find your final discussion post.  It can get confusing.  I get the young and not lots of money part, but want to feed the dog well - sounds just like my kids. Grainfree is more expensive, but usually a better way to go - and a more efficient food digestively.  I would choose one of the cheaper foods on the recommended list - Blue Buffalo or Canadae.
