Dog foods / Re: Cavapoo and Akela
« on: May 09, 2018, 20:05 »
Hello and welcome to the forum. I am wondering if the vomiting maybe that her stomach is empty. This happened to my dog  and a small snack a couple of hours before her evening feed sorted things out. I am guessing that the portion of Akela is smaller than the other food as it is richer. I would advise that you speak to a vet if it persists. It could also be that the food is a little rich for her and the portion size needs to be reduced further. The higher meat content foods do not suit all dogs. How are her stools since you changed ? If Daisy decides she isn't keen, there are lots of other foods you can try.  It can be lots of trial and error.

I have re-posted the links to the threads discussing this in depth as I don't know if you had a chance to read them. I didn't see your response before it disappeared so please ask if there is any thing else you wanted to know.

Welcome to the forum. Please feel free to share a little about your pets and any experiences you have had with food.

Houndmad5, I have removed your other post as it was asking the same question as this one. It will be useful if you can give us the information Coaster has requested in order to advise you better.

Interesting.  I picked up all the points that you did Dottie. I have always felt inclined to add some carbs from whole grain sources or starchy veg to my dogs raw complete and I have read a little about the benefits of fasting for humans.  I don't think it would be very easy to fast a dog to be honest. I would be worried that my dog would think she was being punished.  Food for thought though.

Thanks for the update. That is the first hurdle. I hope he continues to enjoy his food.  As Dottie says, any feedback you can give us, will be appreciated.

So sorry to hear this news. Such a hard decision but I think we all know when they have had enough. Saying goodbye is easier than watching them suffer.  Hopefully it won't be too long before you can think about Maddie and the memories make you smile. :'(

You could also try adding a little warm water to the dry food to release some smells and make it more interesting.

Hello and welcome to the forum. would you be able to provide a bit more information. How old is Sophie? Are you aware of any other allergies other than fish and shell fish. Was there shell fish/fish in the food you mention that she was allergic to? Are you weighing the food and if so is it the recommended daily amount. Sometimes this is quite generous and can be cut down. Have you tried an elimination diet?

It may also be worth thinking about using a muzzle when you are out if the scavenging is bad. I sometimes add sweet potato, brown rice or plain oats cooked in water to bulk out food without adding too many calories. Pureeing veg can also be useful so you could add some of the lower calorie veg in with the ones she will eat.

I am not sure about why the wet and dry food together is recommended . i would be interested to know why this is helpful for preventing possible kidney problems due to medication. The only thing I can think of is that the dry food encourages more water consumption.

Hello and welcome to the forum. As Rebecca says, it may not be the food. I know that a dogs behaviour can sometimes be difficult when they hit their teens.  I agree that it may be worth waiting a while before changing the food.

Just to add, if you did want to try one of the cold pressed foods but are on a budget, Markus Muhle, works out cheaper than most and for the price, it has an excellent rating of 4.5. (the new red deer one is more expensive) Lukullus is also reasonable and you can get smaller bags if you wanted to try it first. 
You can find out some information about cold pressed food here

A tricky one as it seems likely that Blue may be used to junk food. ::)  I hope you can find something good for him that he enjoys.

Truly shocking. Very worrying. All these revelations serve to undermine consumer confidence further :'(

I am sorry to hear this news. I hope you get some definite answers soon. As petmum says, you are clearly doing the best you can to make sure she gets what she needs. :'(
