I've been a long time reader of dogster; actually a lot of the more senior topics/health related topics helped with some of the issues my 14 yr old cocker spaniel/poodle/shnauzer mix had, she's passed on in December before xmas. We are now looking into adopting a sweet little spaniel/poodle mix from a local rescue, and are waiting for 6 more wks to pass (he's 3 wks now); waiting is so hard
I've begun researching foods and O-M-G! there are so many options and concerns! The pup is going to be weaned onto Act1um (sp?) it's found at walmart and is ok but only has chicken meal as the only source of protein, so a change will be in order when we get him.
I think I've conclusively decided on Acana for food and Zuke's for treats, but what puppy formula I Acana should I feed? is a cavalier poodle mix a small breed puppy or do I feed the puppy and junior formula? My 14 yr old girl was at max 25 lbs grown, and the vet says the new little guy will be around 20 lbs possible (looking at the size of the mom, and growth patterns but then who knows).
Also if anyone has any other suggestions for food and treats, please feel free to toss it into the ring.
