The PPP SSS does not have corn in it, it's Salmon. My guys had problems with Chicken, Turkey, and lamb formulas.

I've fed the Selects line before and it did not have corn, wheat or soy.

I too go to "dogfoodadvisor", you'll get a great education. I fed Murphy Orijen and his poop was a little soft. I now feed "brothers". You must buy direct from them and the shipping is free over $50.00. It's not cheap but you'll feed alot less. Go to "BrothersComplete.com". They will send free samples. You can email them questions and they get back to you very quickly (it is run by two brothers). Murph likes the fish and beef food. Good Luck!!

i wouldnt trust that website, they clearly have their own agenda.

As for food, eukanuba has alot of iffy ingredients, and im not too fond of purina, try fromm or acana. I have a friend who feeds Presidents choice dog food, and although for its price its pretty good, there are alot better options. Just wondering, no offence meant at all what soever just curious, but you dont have a golden retriever, nor does it seem like you have owned a golden any time recently, why are you on a golden retriever forum?

Hes been on Acana before but I dont like the price and quality.

I was not aware I needed to own a Golden Retriever in order to be on the forum? Did this become a rule I was not made aware of? I had a GR when I was a kid, actually, 2. I have an interest in the breed and in the future hope to own one and like responsible people do they research the breed before hand. I have family who own Goldens that Lincoln plays with sometimes.

Hopefully, thats reason enough for you to be satisfied with me being on a GR forum, if not, Oh well

Lincoln and Jake

Seriously?? Please try to be a bit more civil to forum members. I have read several posts that are judgmental. We don't need that. Thank you.

Edited because I didn't want to sound judgmental either

What else is Lincoln ingesting (supplements, treats) is he getting coconut oil? I think part of the issue with all of his past food changes posted about on this forum is he was never on any one thing long enough & the addition/removal of several supplements during food changes. Too many variables makes it difficult to pinpoint the source of the problem.

He has been on food long enough. He was on Pro Plan for 3-4 months, Acana 6-7 months. He is not taking any supplements other then his joint supplement and soloxine for his thyroid. Thats it and thats all hes been on for 3 months

Guys i swear it was purely curiousity No offence, hostility NOTHING MEANT, just curious, i know you dont need to have a golden to be a forum, i just figured a golden forum would generally have golden owning members, i was just wondering if you had like a sister with a golden, or a golden that passed or some other circumstance like that.
