Recently I was stuck between 3 foods. GO, Eukanuba and Annamaet. I am trying the Annamaet Salcha currently. So far so good

As for joints, try a glucosamine pill or like Cosequin. Mine is on Osteo3 but he has joint problems
Way to go.....

Its amazing the things you can learn from someone after you stop telling them to essentially jump off the nearest cliff lmao

As for joints, after the Osteo3 is up, I was going to try Annamaet Endure. I still have a few months left of the current one but Im excited to try this one!

There is nothing wrong with Eukanuba.....my dogs were on it for years and had great results on it. If it's working, stick with it!

It can be a sign that something in the food isn't quite agreeing with them. One of my guys gets eye junk bad on chicken based foods, for example. But, you have to pick and choose your battles sometimes--and my golden is super sensitive. So if the rest is going well (no itching, no hot spots, good energy, good stools, etc), the eye boogers wouldn't be enough to make me switch foods, if all else was great. JMHO.

It depends on what kind of meat is in the food. The moment we switched Rose to BB she stopped having it. When I got some beef canned food she got the "junky eyes" again.I will try it again later to see if that was indeed the culprit.

To the OP - there is nothing you can give to prevent hip displasia. Nowaday most of the food on the market already contains glucosamin and chondroitin. So I do not do supplements other than Apple Cider Vinegar and Salmon Fish oil at this young age. Once that she is two and have her clearance tests I will proceed from there accordingly.
We used GlycoFlex with our other dogs when they were older. We progressed as needed from GlycoFlex I to Glycoflex III.

There are many benefits to ACV.

Worked for Buddy and his never ending hotspots. He was getting hotspot almost daily now he had not gotten 1 in a few months. Nothing else in his diet changed during that time period other than ACV was added. Mine eat FROMM Chicken a la Veg the most but is switched to Grainfree Surf n Turf the last 2 bags because the Yorkies were getting board. His skin is still great!

Do the research yourself and then make and educated decision.

Best luck finding the right food.

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)
