"Pumpkin works much the same way as mashed sweet potatoes. I usually recommend the latter because it's much less expensive and you have less waste. But the pumpkin is a fine alternative. I'm glad Teddy is doing so much better!"

"The Venture Duck formula would be fine. It has a very nice fiber content at 8%, and the Omega 3 fatty acid content is good too. When doing a food trial, you need to stay with the one single animal protein, and that includes treats as well. So…"

Veterinary recommends Hills Science z/d diet - Due to anal gland issues? HELP!!

So our 2-year old labradoodle has continued to experience impacted/full anal glands which need to be cleaned out by the vet almost monthly. The vet is now thinking it may be a food sensitivity (which I have inquired with the vet previously) and is now suggesting Hills Science z/d to try and rule out anything?I know Hills Science isn’t a great food, but wondering if anyone else has dealt with this issue or food? Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated. ThanksLisaSee More
