If I lived a hundred years, I would never understand why and how human beings can be so incredibly kind and good and also so evil...they have the strangest natures in all of creation...rest in peace Oskar.

I concur with trying a grain free, and if I may suggest, try a vennison grain free - go to an unconventional meat protein.

Natural Balance, Nutro, and California Natural all have such recipes, although I think that Natural Balance is sweet potato, Nutro is potato.

Cindy used to be a Pet Nutrition Specialist for Nutro (she doesn't work for them now), and for dogs with sensitivies and allergies, she had a lot of success with the dogs that switched over to either Vennison/Brown Rice or the Vennison Grain free formulas. They are not extravagant. I myself am allergic to lamb, and Cindy put me on a Vennison/Brown Rice formula and bow wow wow it helped me, and it was so yummy my pack sis Ellie started nosing around MY bowl (and she's not allergic to anything...) bol...

Hang in there with everything you must bear right now...it sounds really really hard...we hope you can moments of light and laughter to help strengthen you!hugflowers

Food & Nutrition > chicken jerky treats recall

I have not been able to get Cindy to substantiate this rumor yet...but a friend who works in many pet stores told us that many, many customers at one Petsmart store had told management that if they continued to stock Chinese jerky treats, that they would stop shopping in the store.

Whatever led to this withdrawal of the product, we applaud it applause

We hope the entire Chinese chicken pet treat industry collapses...they killed hundreds, perhaps thousands, of American pets.

Cindy stopped buying anything made in China after the 2007 melanine debacle.

Nutro Natural Choice has a Vennison/Potato formula and a Fish/Potato - check out their ingredients here:

http://www.nutro.com/natural-dog-food/natural-choice-dog-fo od/dry/adult-grain-free-venison-and-potato.aspx

If you're dealing with an allergy...the allergen is almost always to a protein source...so the meat or the grain in most dog foods. Vennison and Fish are "novel" meat proteins and are often used in limited ingredient diets, I think they'd be worth trying. Cindy switched me to Vennison/Brown Rice after we realized I was reacting to lamb.

If you'd like to slow down your pup's eating, try turning a cup or bowl over upside down in the middle of the food bowl and spreading the food around it. You can go buy fancy bowls for speed eaters but this will do the trick just the same. The idea is they can't get there mouth into the food and hoover, they gotta eat around the outside. You don't have to change the amount at all...just spread it around whatever you put in the middle of the bowl.

Nutro Max isn't real expensive, but it is a definite move up from most foods you'll find in the grocery store. There's no by products, no ground yellow corn, so it's digestible...it really could solve the stinky problem for you. If you try it, keep your receipt and the bag, if it doesn't solve the problem or if you don't like it, there's a 100% money back guarantee. you don't you may need a more limited ingredient diet due to allergies, but that gets expensive so I would suggest try the less dramatic and less expensive change first. But I betchya you see a difference. If If you want to try and get a coupon before shopping go to www.nutro.com and see what they have under the "My Nutro Rewards" tab.

Check you petsmart's price on Nutro Max for large breeds - it is definitely a step up from Pedigree in that there's no by products, and no whole ground corn although it has both wheat and rice. But it's moderately priced, you should be able to find it in petsmart, and you can often find coupons on line for it at Nutro.com/my nutro rewards. It has received Dog Food Advisor's "mid tier" rating (3.5 stars out of 5).

Here's the ingredient list:

My Cindy works part time for Nutro...she often suggests this to folks feeding Pedigree or Beneful or Purina as a moderately priced food that offers an upgrade. There's a guarantee with this...that your dog will like the food, have a better skin and coat, and you'll be cleaning up less stool cuz the food is more digestible. So keep your bag, and the receipt, and check with whereever you buy it about returning unusued food.

At Petco.com a 30lb bag is about $30.00

Don't forget to check for coupons!
