Stop littering - spay and neuter!
Barked: Sun Sep 30, '07 4:16pm PST 
I am currently eating Nutro Max small bites right now. I say "eating", but really, I don't like it very much and I just pick at it. Mom has a kennel near our house that sells Innova, Nature's Logic, and Solid Gold. I need something that has little bites since I don't do too well at crunching big stuff.

What do you guys recommend between the three brands? I could stand to gain a little weight. One of the things Mom likes about the Nutro is that my #2 is very small and easy to clean up, so that is a big bonus (since I'm not as well potty trained as Mom wants me to be)!

Thanks everyone. puppy

Of the three I'd go with Innova and then Solid Gold. The Nature's Logic makes me nervous, personally. However, there are others that might love it.

Can you say- CHAMPION?

I have no experience with Solid Gold or Nature's Logic, but have been really happy with Innova. I currently feed the regular (in the green bag) and it appears to be delicious, additionally there is not too much of it coming out the back end, which is always super. The kibbles are also nice and small, which you might enjoy. Good luck with your choice!
ETA: good gracious, they make Innova in even smaller bits than the regular?

I've been really happy with my Innova EVO, Firefly loves Innova canned foods, but between the dry foods, Firefly picks Solid Gold each time I do a "taste test" with her four foods: Merrick's, Canidae, EVO, and Solid Gold.

If you are interested in Solid Gold, they have a special small dog kibble called Just a Wee Bit, which I have heard is good. I feed BatM(Barking at the Moon) which has a medium sized kibble, but for you, I'd recommend JaWB.

I have experience with Innova, but their product EVO is pawesome, and Firefly loves it, and they make a Red Meat Small Bites formula. Perfect size for a tiny dog!!!Grain-free too!

I have no experience with the other...Sorry.

Hi Dexter! I have not tried the Innova or Solid Gold dry but love their canned foods. I was eating Nutro Max and just would not gain weight. Mom switched our pack to Canidae, which is similar in quality to these 2 brands, and I am now a normal healthy weight. You will find that when you switch from Nutro to either brand, you will not have to eat as much because there is a big jump in quality in the foods. Nutro has a lot of fillers that your body just does not use or need, the other 2 are full of good stuff to keep ya healthy!
Good Luck! wavewave

Innova and Solid Gold are both really good foods... Solid Gold is more cutsie with more options... I mean if you want to get down to the nitty gritty, Innova dry dog food has 3 different proteins. In my opinion, dogs benefit most from a single protein such as all chicken, all turkey, all lamb, all salmon, etc...Solid Gold products tend to have all one protein, but it isn't necessarily the main ingredient (which, I think, is crucial)... as far as solid gold goes I would reccomend: Hund-n-Flocken Adult, Mmilennia Beef and Barley Adult, and Just a Wee Bit Adult...

Remember to add water to the food, this not only softens the food, releases aromas, and creates a yummy gravy, but it expands the food to its limit and prevents expansion in the stomach causing distress! P-mail me with questions!!

Wow guys, thank you so much! I should know that Dogster dogs are the smartest. cheer

Thanks for all the help - I'll have to see what Mom decides on. It sounds like Solid Gold might be the one for me. Hopefully the kennel will let us take a taste test! Yum! puppy

I eat Innova and I LOVE it cheer My brothers used to eat it but one has allergies so he's on allergy food and the other has liver disease so my momma cooks for him. Mom says Solid Gold is good food too, she buys us some of their jerkey treats.
