I am in the process of switching my corgi, Bailey's food and the new food is Taste of the Wild and is higher in protein that her Nutro Natural Choice food. (I'm still in the weaning process and she's doing well so far)
I use The Missing Link with Glucosamine on her food, which was recommended by our vet, but now with the higher protein content of the new food, I'm wondering if its too much? Does anyone have any suggestions or comments on this? Thanks!
Thanks, Melissa. I appreciate that info. She loves Taste of the Wild. I did a food test with a few that were recommended and she went straight to that one...twice. (And she is very picky about her food)
And that's great to know about the Glucosamine with the Chondrotin together. I'll find something with both supplements together.
I'm glad you told me that TOTW is lower in calories because it doesn't take much for my girl to pack on the lbs and we walk a few times a day. I was actually worried about the food being too much for her. Thanks again! :)
My three are on TOTW, too, and love it. I tried switching to Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul as it was also highly rated and a bit less expensive, but one of the corgs developed horrible gas when on it, so switched back to TOTW and poof (so to speak) no more gas.
I give them Dasuquin (gluc + cond) as a supplement on the recommendation of the ortho vet that fixed one of my corgs rear legs (had a TPLO for a cruciate repair).
Thanks for the reply, Jane. My boyfriend and I always joke that she acts like we don't feed her....so I'm glad its not just me...and her. lol.
It's great to know that other corgi owners love TOTW and that you can switch the flavors up. I was worried about her gaining weight on this food but it doesn't seem like that's an issue. Can I ask if you feed them less because of the high protein content?
Thanks, Ellen. Good to know about the food...all the replies are putting my mind at ease for switching her to TOTW.
And thanks for the info on the Dasuquin. Her one back leg will go lame once and a while. I've had our vet check her out and she's okay, but it's always a concern. I will try the other for sure now.
