Food for our four legged children is a very personal thing and everyone picks what works best for them. Is Murphy's current food working for him? If not what type of issues are you experiencing. Just wondering.
What works for my 3.5 year old has been a grain free diet consisting of half home cooked (protein + veggies + supplements) and half Orijins (Adult, Six Fish or Red). I rotate Orijins on a per bag basis For home cooked (1) proteins can be chicken, turkey, salmon, lamb, liver, egg,(2) veggies can be string beans, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, carrots, asparagus, squash, (3) supplements are Nordic Naturals Omega 3 capsules that I squeeze the oil out of onto the food, prozyme, Balance-IT and fortiflora and to all this I add a tablespoon of pumpkin and a tablespoon of yogurt. I don't use broccoli because it raises his ALT levels - it's not uncommon for dogs to be very sensitive to broccoli this way.
I feed twice a day. He hasn't had any weight problems but I make sure he gets appropriate daily exercise.
