Hi , I recently switched my dogs from Nutro (yes, I never knew how bad a food this was till this forum) to Taste of the Wild Venison. I gradually switched over and now after 5 days of only TOW my 2 Cockers have very bad gas and the craps. At my local tractor supply they only carry the TOW and Blue Buffalo so I am trying to stick to these 2 so I do not have to travel far for their food. Should I try the blue or just give them a chance to adjust? Thanks for any advice,Pam
I would give it longer than 5 days. When I first switched my GSH Pointer over to a grain free food she had gas too. She also is eating the TOTW bison formula and is doing wonderful on it.
Did you do the switch gradually? Sometimes if you switch foods too fast it can cause some upset in some dogs.
Also, be sure you aren't over feeding. Feeding too much of a grain free food can cause problems such as runny stool. For comparison, Lucky my 48 lb. GSH Pointer eats about 3/4 of a cup two times a day with two spoonfulls of canned mixed in.
totw is better im. how big are your dogs and how muh you feeding?
RC, man, you love those Diamond foods....
isnt blue buffalo a grained food though?
im not familiar with the price, but i know you have trouble imagining non evo/champ food s =p.
there grain free formula looks meh imo.
is TOTW made by diamond?
gotta love rotties
to the OP, id agree that since you already started the TOTW id give it a while longer.
if you were comparing TOTW with Blue Buffalo's grainless food (Wilderness) id definitely favor the Wilderness.

I would go with Blue Buffalo.
