2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited.

PostSubject: Good wet dry food combo advice   Wed Dec 30, 2015 7:31 pm

Our husky is 24lbs at the end of Feb he will turn 6 months and we want to switch him to a good wet dry food mix . Right now he is on blue wilderness bison and he eats it very well . I wanted to switch him to tote wet dry mix or blue wet dry mix. Anyone ever try this and have some recommendations for a good mix

Thanks

My pup gets bored of food quickly so I'm almost constantly changing his combo. Lucky for me, he doesn't seem to have too much of a sensitive stomach. Of course you want to be careful if you decide to switch, your pup might get loose poops or diarrhea. yuck.

For dry food, I started with Taste of wild for puppies (did both flavors, he liked chicken better). Then moved on to Wellness grain-free for puppies, and now I'm feeding Evo Food grain free- chicken (also tried both flavors, and again puppy like chicken better). Evo Food is great, really really high in protein (like almost 50%) and calories (about 500 cal/cup) so you end up feeding less cups per day and save money in the long run.

For wet food, I started with Honest Kitchen mixes. They're great, just hydrate with hot water! Also, it's human-grade food with veggies and protein. They use fancy things like cage-free chicken and grass-fed beef. (Sometimes I wondered why I bought my dog better food than I feed myself...) My pup liked it for a while, but eventually lost interest and it's super expensive.

Now I just buy different flavored canned food and mix it into his kibble. I usually go for cans from Wellness, Halo, or Merrick. I really like the 95% stuff, it's mostly just additional protein but I'll give him stews as well so he can get more veggies. This way puppy gets different flavors added to his meal so he's not bored. He still like chicken best.

Usually I'll feed him maybe a quarter can of food a day and 1-2 cups of kibble depending on how active he is. My pup loves it and he has healthy poops. =D
