i fed wellness to jongee and she liked it pretty much, the dogfood doesnt smell that bad either and it can be a little pricey compared to other holistic dogfoods..

it has lots of healthy ingredients but jongee got sick of it later and didnt touch it after i fed her natural balance

cool! u really want it?? i have like 4-5 bags of dogfood in ziplock bags!!!
i have wellness, natural balance, a little of royal canin ..some are mixed, some arent..
i have some solidgold too

i dont have much time for cooking either, (actually its just boiling the chicken and veggies so its really not cooking) i just buy a lot and cook them once a week and leave it in the fridge..it usually lasts a little more than a week

jongees tearstains have cleared up too after eating homecooked food..

We were using Just A WeeBit from solid gold but she started to have a strange smell. I called the company and said she must be allergic to the bison. Said to stop using it to look for another food. But I need one that doesn't contain lamb. At the pet store I was told to stay away from chicken because chicken wasn't good for white breed dogs. has anyone heard of this. We don't know what to use.

I went to a specialty pet food store, we definitely know that we can't use lamb. THe breeder was using Iam puppy which has chicken. When I went to the store I was recommended California Natural Lamb. She got really itchy in the face, she would scratch with her paws against furniture. I went back and was recommended Solid Gold WEEBITS, had a horrible smell from her skin. I went back this week to the pet store and she recommended salmon a la veg from Fromm family foods.
He said that I should stay away from chicken not good for white breed dogs. But most of the premium foods and all have chicken. I'm so confused, I don't know where to turn. I think I'll be chaning vets when I ask for his opinion he doesn't seem to perfer quality food says anything would be good.

i never heard of anything like that and plus im sure there are many other breeds with white coats that eat chicken because most dog foods contain chicken. here is a link of dog food brands and a breakdown of the ingredients to look for and to avoid. hope it helps......
