Not So Tiny- Tim

Mischief, it's- what keeps me- coming back

I was just wondering, my Vet recomended Candidate, but I have always fed Iams to both my Saints. I was just wondering what other people out there feed their Saints? Obviously with 2 Large dogs, I can't afford the most expensive food, but I want to ensure their health and nutrition. Thanks Paul.

Mudge eats Nutro Natural Choice (with yogurt in the morning...he's spoiled!).

Snoopy eats Canidae "all stages", with yogurt in the morning. He gets raw at noon, and finaly ends with Canidae in the evening with some canned food for variety. We do add Salmon oil to his food, Ester "C", Vitamin E. We are looking into switching him to more raw with the Canidae as back-up. As far as pricing goes, up here in Canada, the Canidae is really not outrageously priced and is very competative with other brands. I believe its a lot cheaper that other top of the line brands.


why sit when you- can lie down?

dougal eats raw now and at 10 months only needs about 1.5lbs a day. if i average under $2 a pound its cheaper than premium foods. before the switch i was feeding him natural balance and he was doing very well on that. its only a little more expensive than iams but MUCH better for them. also keep in mind the better the food the less they will eat and have smaller poops.

Is it time to- eat again?

We do Science Diet puppy food for large breed but soon will transistion to just the large breed version (after one year they said she won't need puppy food anymore). If we aren't careful, she will eat us out of house and home!

We feed Canidae All Life Stages and it is FANTASTIC! The waste is HALF as much as it was on Nutro, the protein isn't too high, and their coats look fantastic!

It's all about- me!

Dad has been feeding me and cousin Nadia Costco's Kirkland lamb and rice diet. Our vet says this is an excellent quality food comparable to Iams and Science diet... Dad says the switch was a no-brainer! We also get treated to a little raw beef 2-3 times a week.
2 years on this diet and not a single problem!

I'm spoiled but- not rotten!

I just found this forum and its great to see all the Saints! I eat Wellness Core. Saints can have terrible issues with Bloat and the grain free doesn't expand in the stomach like foods with grain does.

Raw is an excellent way to go, too, but I like my kibble and my canned Merrick or Evangers!
