Dog foods / Newbie - Dog Food Advice Needed
« on: Feb 03, 2018, 11:55 »
Hi There,

Our lab, Bowie, has allergies - we have not carried out blood tests for this as the vet said it is food related and the results aren't usually correct!
He constantly has ear infections (which we try to prevent/help with natural products) and always has issues with his anal glands - recently, they seem to have started leaking. The vet expresses them a bit too often for my liking.

We had to visit the vet this week as Bowies ear infection just would not go and it was very smelly etc. The vet recommended Hills z/d food! As soon as I heard "Hills" my head was shaking. However, my husband believes every word a vet says and wants to give this food a go. Please can you advise on whether there is any nutritional value to this food because, from what I have seen, it is full of rubbish and fillers which I don't want to be giving to my boy.

Bowie is almost 2 years old and he is currently on Symply wet mixed with Canagan dry - we try to stick to fish or lamb as I know a lot of dogs have allergies to chicken. His stools are usually fairly soft and he does often have "runny" occasions.

Many thanks in advance.
Michelle
