I am on my 4th Golden. They never had health problems, were never overweight, & always had gorgeous, full coats. My 2 first ones, they were 2 when I was born, were perfectly healthy & pretty & they lived to be 14 & 15. My previous Golden, Sport, who was taken away from me after my dad passed away & I had to move in with my aunt & uncle was absolutely gorgeous & never had, & still doesn't have any health problems (I've tried to keep up with him & his new owners). My present Golden is absolutely gorgeous & extremely healthy. The vet loves him & he just turned 1 in October. Everyone I see while walking him, even some people that don't like dogs, ask me if they can have him (jokingly, but also a little serious) because of his beauty & attitude. All of these dogs were fed Science Diet from the time they were weened until either death or still are fed Science Diet to this day & will be fed it until they pass away. I put everything on this food when I say it is wonderful. Never met a dog that doesn't like it & never met a vet that wouldn't recommend it. Science Diet is to give a dog a long, healthy life. I promise. Nugget, previous dog Click image for larger version

i feed purina to chester. i tried changing him to different a different brand (Fromm, and natural balance) but i got the same outcome that you did, really gassy, lots of poop and soft poop. now back on purina he has a schedule of 3 poops a day and they are firmed which is what i like to see (lol it sounds so funny). until you have a dog you never know how interested you would be about poop.

My dogs get PPP sensitive skin and stomach and do very well on it. I add salmon oil and glucosamine condroitin. I have found a store chain here that offers it at a very affordable price-- $29.99 for a 33 lb. bag. I am a believer that the dog food, like the people food, needs to be good quality but also needs to fit the budget!

Mick developed skin allergies so I put him on Wellness Core. It was expensive but less expensive then having his vet treat him for hot spots. I added salmon oil and his coat was beautiful.
The breeder I'm hoping to get a puppy from has always used PP sensitive skin and stomach. No reason for the S&S other then all 5 of her dogs are doing great on it and she feeds it to puppies.
So if it happens I'll go with the breeder's choice.

I have fed Vinnie Simply Nourish from Petsmart since I weened him off of Puppy Chow from the "breeder" he has never has a problem with it. He has 2 really good stools a day and a beautiful coat.
