|Hey Augie & Zuzu!! Welcome to dogster!
First of all, a lot of vets recommend Science Diet because they get benefits or commisions from pushing that product. That dosn't necessarily mean that it is going to be best for your dog, unfortunately. If you read the list of ingredients off, the first ingredient should ALWAYS be meat. Most "big box" stores carry cheap brands that use cheap fillers such as corn as their first ingredient. A good rule of thumb when looking for a nutritional food is "grain-free". I am currently feeding Nallah Wellness Core Original. It is completely grain free and all natural, she loves it, and I love feeding something wholesome to her. Here are some brands that you might look into: Wellness, Natures Variety, Innova, or Evangers. These are all grain-free and very highly reputable names.
Puppies do require certian requirements for feeding guidelines. When looking for puppy food, most of these brands carry a line based on puppy requirements. They consider puppies any dog under one year old. Do some research and see what you come up with, I'm sure you'll find something that works well for your dogs. Another tip: when trying new food, gradually mix in new food to old, a sudden change is hard on their digestive system, which could be why he got the runs from the Nutro. Good Luck, hopefully this helped you!
