U try la... try liao den u know difference.

U know hor.. fur is ALOT when you talk abt a Mongrel (Dbl coated coz lab blood) and a Husky...

So yes... changes in food affect the amt of fur dropped.

I think we have a num of kakis here who feed Acana also...

And oh yes.. their latest range of treats...
DUN FEED TOO MUCH!!!
It's mainly liver... so... Excessive treats = soft poop.
Max = 1 pc/day for the old women in my household.. i fed 2 pc on the day i opened.... pwah..... nxt day regret big time.

Let me know if you're keen to meet up ya. Just tat my old ladies might not be comfortable with young dogs coz energy can't keep up and the black one is now deaf and goin slightly blind.

I dont think there is no 1 fit all type of food.

It depends very much on the breed and condition of the pet... plus the owner's preference.

My dog has sensitive skin and allergy to beef, pork, chicken etc.. oh ya.. also sensitive to Heartgard... but have no issue with fish4dog - salmon / white fish... and the vet change it to Revolution drip...

no issue with the poo.. btw, mine is Italian greyhound fm Aust.

I give whatever is on sales and have quality I guess. I go to Sun Petgamart to stock up at least 6 months worth of kibbles.

The latest they are getting is Go! Lamb from B2K Warehouse Sales. Also Alps Natural from different protein sources.

But kibbles wise they're only getting 40% out of their whole diet; The rest are homecooked food (Chicken thigh, beef, fish etc.) or commercial homecooked food (Honest Kitchen), raw or commercial raw (Stella&Chewy, K9 Natural, Primal, NorthWest Natural, Small Batch). Supplement usually natural ones: (48 hours hydrated organic Chia Seeds, EVOO, Coconut Water, Spirulina, Turmeric).

Fruits: Apple, Blueberries, Strawberries, Bananas are mostly what I give them since we eat them a lot at home.

Water parade with Coconut Water like stated, chicken broth added into their food.

For my cats all same except no fruits-- They get canned food as well.

Treats wise I buy single-ingredient dehydrated/ freeze dried treats like Fuzzyard Supernatural, K9 Natural, Deer Deer, Absolute Bites, Vital Essential, Basic instinct, Zeal, Addiction etc. I also have dehydrator but hardly using since I haul a lot at warehouse sales and Expos.

I don't agree with using Revolution or Frontline faithfully every single month, the ticks around them will get immune, and imaging getting poison into their bloodstream every month, they will need to work very hard to dispose of the poison in them. Once per 3-4 months would be better, but I avoid using them altogether since my dogs don't go for walks.

If you're staying in landed etc. perhaps you can get Carrington dog's wash to clean around where the dogs are usually.
