I’ve recently been looking for a different dog food for Sammie. We messed up this last time – instead of buying her Purina Pro Plan, we bought her Purina One Sensitive Systems and she’s been extremely itchy ever since. Unfortunately, I can’t figure out why! The ingredients lists are not all that different between the two (except for the order of ingredients). And, while Sammie’s itchiness DID get better on the Purina Pro Plan, she never did quit chewing on her paws. The hunt for a better dog food was on again!
After reading a review of one of their products on The Rufus Way, I started looking into Merrick dog food. With their limited, natural ingredients, I decided to try her on the Grain Free Real Salmon & Sweet Potato Recipe dry dog food. She’s now denied poultry AND grains. Hopefully this will finally clear things up for her! Anyway, I ordered it online from Chewy on December 22, and it arrived Christmas Eve (talk about fast delivery!). Sammie has seemed to enjoy it so far, but it’s too soon to tell whether it’s helping or not. Besides, we’re still mixing in a little of her old dog food to wean her onto this new one.
Wish us luck!
