Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
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. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Ok so on friday koda was still having runny poop when he has only been eating the eggs, pumpking and greenbeans or carrots.. So i called the vet and he told me to try just boiled chicken and rice.. Ive been feeding him that and only that since friday night and he has actually had BMs with shape to them which is the first in lile 2 weeks.. They were still soft but had shape which i think is good.. Early next week i wana slowly start mixing in some kibble. Now this is where my questions come in.. Do i keep trying to use the earthborn since idk if that was the problem and i finally got his tummy settled? Or do i maybe try a dog food with some rice in it since it seems he does good with it. The breeder i got him from was feeding him kibble with rice in it some im wondering if thats what he is used to.. And if i should find a food with some rice in it what are my options. I would like a higher quality food but im hurtin on money now a little. I would like atleast a 4 star food

Acana has a LID line which avoids a lot of "lower" quality grains/filler and focuses on novel proteins and higher quality grain... If I were you that's what I would try.

I wouldn't feed anything from Nutro, their reputation is beyond less than stellar... Acanas LID is nice because the carb/grain source isn't common. What price range are you looking in? Natures variety has a decent LID line...

A more accurate price would be under $2.10 per lb
