Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum.
I have a 7 months old italian greyhound, it's a bitch and a really fussy eater.
I have noticed that as a result of her picky eating her coat does not look it's best. I'm pretty sure she has no other health issues, she is lively, bouncy, normal weight, normal stool etc. but probably not getting all the nutrition she should be at this age. Also she never eats anywhere enough what the guidelines for her size and breed say she should be eating. She is more of a couch potato but has her exercise too.
I'm forever searching for the best food for her and although I'm not keen on forever switching brands or type of food unfortunately that is exactly what I'm doing at the moment
I wanted to get her the best quality food there is, even if it meant paying more, her healthy growth and well being is important to me plus she is a show dog.
We've had so far - Royal Canin Junior small breeds until she went off it plus I was told not to give it dry (soaked for better digestion, which she wouldn't eat after a while) then we tried Lilly's kitchen puppy dry and wet food - again limited success (on and off), so we even tried raw feeding (Natures Menu and Nutriment) with not much success either and after she threw it up undigested I stopped giving it. I then put her on Natures Menu wet puppy food which was a big success to start with (puppy chicken and lamb) but again it didn't last long.
So she is currently still on wet food, I'm now trying to alternate it between Natures Menu wet and Collards wet puppy food (she will only eat one flavour of each) and adding some sardines, cooked chicken etc. to it to actually get her to eat it.
Can anyone suggest some top quality wet/dry food for puppies please?
What do you think about any vitamin supplements or adding Salmon or Coconut oil (or both?) to her diet?
Many thanks for any advice
