Dog foods / New here! Advice please
« on: Jun 10, 2019, 11:13 »

I have a 12 week old shih tzu who is just adorable. This is the first puppy I have ever owned and I spend most days researching everything and anything. He came to my house on royal canin dry food. I felt bad feeding him biscuits every day, I thought to myself. I wouldnt want to eat digestive biscuits 3 times a day every day and introduced him to a bit of wet food mixed in with his kibble. Started with Butcher's foil trays. But then he started itching a lot and getting really hyper after meal times - literally bouncing off the walls. So i ordered some food off the pets at home, mixture really. Lily's Kitchen, Little BigPaws and a fishmongers one and while waiting for that I have been cooking boiled chicken with veg (carrots, peas, sweet pots), also been doing him some scrambled egg with puppy milk of a morning and he is still itching and has the odd few sneezes too. (Mixing kibble in with these foods still as was worried he might not be getting all the good stuff)

Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? Do you think its the food? Something in the air? Shall I just stick with dry food? If so, how do I get him back to eating dry food as he will just leave it in his bowl, however, I have been feeding him the kibble by hand as he thinks its treats. So when we are playing or training, I will use that instead of treats.

Anyone have any advice?

Thanks so much
