So if I follow you right, he is having the problems with the chicken and rice formula and you haven't tried the salmon one yet? I didn't think the salmon formula comes in a puppy formula but that might be a decent option if it does. Eukanuba has good puppy food so that is a good option. As far a shedding goes, all goldens do that. Might be just the time of the year.I feed my 5 months old puppy purina pro plan all size puppy http://www.purina-proplan.com/uk/dog/puppyAllSizesOriginal.asp
At the petshop told me to change it and give purina pro plan puppy with salmon & rice and not the one i give(chicken and rice) for not to loose a lot of hairs.
I heard that because the food, the dog can have gases in the intestine, a lot of dried tears after sleep and the dog smells bad..
My puppy eats his food without problem, but he looses hairs, he has gas, tears after every sleep and an ungly smell.
I'm thinking to change his food. But I don't know which one to prefer..
Here in Greece, best dog foods are considered: Hills, Purina pro plan, Royal canine, Orijen, Acana(which is difficult to find), Eukanuba, Eagle Pack Holistic.
What do you propose me to do??
(sorry for my english)
I would ask you vet for his recommendation.
