I put Cody on the duck (4 star) for two reasons.... he had previously been on the Eagle Pack Holistic duck, and, if I remember right, the duck has a lower calcium and phosphorous level which he seems to do better on. I occasionally switch up and use the chicken but mostly use the duck. While the goldens do ok on grain free ( I like the Acana), he doesn't. Also, I'm just a little leary of having fish be the main protein source long term. I know Fromm fish has no ethoxyquin, but since so much fish contains other pollutants, it makes me question if this is the best for them. I know this could be me overthinking it.
What flavor do you feed?I would try California Natural. It is a high quality food made specifically for dogs with Allergy issues.
With my Dakota, we went from 4 years of horrible ears to clean ears in 6 weeks, and he never had another problem with them for 6 years.
The gold line is great... I just can't find it here.I am feeding the Gold Large Breed Puppy Food. I am going to be switching soon and I think I will go with the Gold Large Breed Adult b/c she has done really well on the puppy version and at least at my pet store, the gold line is a lot cheaper than the 4 star line. Our budget is tight, so I want to feed a high quality food, but we don't have a lot to spend.
