|Canidae is my #1 choice now. My dogs all eat it, nobody leaves food lay anymore. I can feed ONE bag of food to all 5 of my dogs (2 Shep mixes, a lab mix, a golden mix, and a Shih Tzu, and the lab and golden mixes are puppies yet). I feed less, too. Trey ( at the time 6 months old, golden mix) was eating SEVEN cups of Nutro Lg Breed puppy a day. SEVEN CUPS! Well at least, he should have been. But he'd eat about half of it and then throw it on the floor and ignore it. And that food runs $36 for a 40lb bag. He eats THREE cups of Canidae a day, and is at a perfect weight, and his skin and coat are BEAUTIFUL. So I'm saving a lot of money. I was using 3 different kinda of Nutro at a time (lg breed adult, lg breed puppy, small bites) and now everyone eats out of one bag.
As far as the seasonal ear gunk, I don't know. If it comes and goes with the season, who knows? But my thoery is that better food gives a better immune system, which makes it easier to fight off stuff. That's why I'm thinking Little Man didn't come down with his allergy problems this summer. Last summer he'd only been eating decent food (Nutro, before the ingredient change) for a few months. His skin and coat were better, but he was still in the process of healing. And the corn pollen made him very itchy and he had to take Benedryl every day. This summer he had more than a year of good food under his collar, he was just changed to Canidae, and he was much healthier than he had been. His body was better able to fight off the allergy problem and he didn't get itchy at all this summer. I don't know if I'm right or not, but that's what I think!
