Well if he has a sensitive stomach, which isn't uncommon in GSDs, you may just have to experiment around and see what works for him.

You could try limited ingredient foods like California Natural, Blue Basics, Wellness Simple Solutions, Nature's Variety.

Alternatively, most dogs do very well on a raw diet and it's easy to do an elimination diet with raw.

too old to eat- any more KD

Squ'mey did very well on orijen's Large Breed Puppy formula. I switched him to Acana when he matured, as the adult Orijen formulas did not agree with him. I also add a probiotic/enzyme to his food to help maintain his gut flora.

I feed raw to my GSD. She`s 3.5 years old right now and doing great! The breeder put the entire litter of puppies on raw right from mothers milk.

Here is a link to a good forum if you`re interested:
