[nagdu] Switching food

Fair enough.  I think Raven's rubbing off on me (ha ha!) but I wanted to switch her food anyway, so I was so thrilled when I found Petcurean locally with good reviews.  Her problems are minor in the grand scheme of things (slight scratching, nails, and - the biggie - the funk that comes off her when she sleeps).  I wanted grain-free because that's likely the cause of the odor, and it should clear up her itchiness according to all the research I have done and consultation with my vet.  She's getting her full work-up in three weeks, so I hope to have a good report!

That just goes to show you how different each dog is with various dog foods.
Wade has been on Purina ProPlan for 14 months now and he's as healthy as can
be. He hasn't had a single health-related problem. I'm sticking with what
I'm using and that's for sure. If something isn't broken.....as the saying

hi guys!

I have made the decision to switch Jenny from Purina ProPlan to another
brand, Petcurean Go! Fit and Free.  She has experienced what I assume are
minor yeast infections, brittle nails, and a rather unpleasant smell from
her feet.  My vet advised switching away from grains if things didn't clear
up, and they haven't.

I am able to purchase Go! Fit and Free locally, and I love the review on Dog
Food Adviser.   Has anyone else fed their dogs this brand, or even heard of
it?  I know it's Canadian, so it may not be available across the border.
I would be more than happy to let anyone know my opinion on this food in a
few weeks once we've made the switch.

Daryl and Jenny (who is excited to go to the pet health store tomorrow!)
