Can you not order food from somewhere like petfooddirect.com or petflow.com and have it shipped to you? I've never checked to see if they shipped to Canada, but if it's possible..it's an idea for a food you may like better but can't find in your area.

And here I was thinking this was a doggy forum and not a 'catty' one. *also teasing* In fairness, this seems to be a case of a certain formula of a food not working for a particular dog. While the individual you refer to has certain brand and tact tendencies (don't we all?), said person has also contributed valuable nutrition info and offered diverse brand suggestions in an honest attempt to meet individual inquirers' situations.

No for 16 years, he switched after allergy issues, we didn't feed any supplements. I've met and heard of many that have done well without supplements.

And whether a dog can digest something in its natural form is sort of immaterial, as we're not feeding things in their natural form. A dog can't open a coconut, but people still give them coconut oil. The question is whether the ground potato in a dog food is somehow more biologically appropriate than the ground corn, and you've never produced any evidence or even any units of measurement that would indicate that.
Well first of all its biological value is lower and it's nutrition is lower according to the USDA national nutrient database

I cant order from a US site without paying $50-$100 in shipping IF they even ship to Canada. Simply Nourish is at pet smart but im at the point where I want him on something hes been on and done well in the past. Nutro or Pro Plan are two foods besides Acana hes done okay on. Acana is $80 a bag so do not want to go back to that

I've heard accounts of such long term PM feeding, but an 18YO Tibetan?! That's gotta be in a record book somewhere.

Source, please? To my understanding, the USDA nutrient database doesn't offer a single number of "nutrition" on foods.

And what do you mean by "biological value?" That just sounds like mumbo jumbo you don't provide actual measurements and nutrients.

I know you've both been through the mill, but given nothing's fully hit the mark yet and the SN's availability, relative affordability, limited ingredients and feedback on skin/coat & digestive wonders, I'd def give their LID GF Salmon & Sweet Potato a look.

p.s. Are any Canadian dog food sale sites ann option or would shipping still make it too much?
