I just switched my 8 year old Yorkie to Innova Evo kibbles in the morning and Nature's Variety raw in the evening. Oh my gosh, does she love this new food!

In fact, my plan was to transition her to the Evo over a 7 day period, then add a raw meal in the evening one night, three nights later, two nights later, then every night. Boy, did that plan go right out the window! The first night I gave her Evo, I mixed her kibbles 75/25 Iams/Evo, only to get up the next morning and find that she had taken every last kibble out of her bowl, spread them all down the hallway rug, and picked out and eaten every single piece of Evo. *laugh!!*

What can you do at that point?  ::)

I feed Nutro Max large breed for breakfast and usually a raw dinner. I switch off with ckicken soup now and again.

Scout's on the Solid Gold Hundenflocken (sp?) and loves it.  He definitely prefers it to the Science Diet he had before and is pooping about 2x a day.

Our 3 boys eat Pedigree Little bites. It is the ONLY food they will eat besides Kibbles and Bits (we unexpectedly ran out of food one night so they had to eat a little bag of it). Every kind of food they eat has to be the little bites too. And what's funny about it....1 of them is a Lab mix and 1 of them is a Huskey mix. The only one that ReALLY needs the little bites is the little Min. Pin. mix. lol. They're weird.
When all this pain is justified,
When all the time is passing by.
Now is when we clench our fists,
Knowing we can fight through this.
The hours and the days are gone.
The weeks and months are moving on.
Can't they see that nothing's gonna stop us now?

So we've changed diets since my first post in this thread- my pups now get half Wellness chicken and half home cooked. I got about a dozen recipes from my vet that I rotate through, and having the kibble makes sure they are getting a balanced diet and I can feed a whole meal of kibble if we go on overnight trips where the cooked food would just be a pain. Both are doing reallly well on it and we are starting to lower Asher's meds because of it.

Well, mine get a little variety I guess. For kibble, I either get black gold, diamond, or blackwood, those are the best three I can get here and I tend to rotate them time to time. I like all three, but I think the blackwood is probably the best one out of those. They also get fed the occasional raw meal, and sometimes I make them home made food. Max is still learning about raw and Savannah loves it. I just don't always have the time, money and freezer space to feed them raw only, so they get a combo diet and I still think it helps their teeth. Max's breath is so much better then when he first came - he used to only be fed kibbles and bits before he got to rescue and it will rot their teeth 0_o

I feed all three of my dogs Nutro's natural choice chicken rice and oatmeal. They love the taste and I love the ingredients.
