Popped by the vet this morning for Claire to get her annual 8 spectrum canine shot, and turns out she has urine crystals forming...the vet suggested I give her more wet home-cooked food. I found this website:
"Food that is heavily processed, sits on the shelves for months or years before it is sold and/or contains ingredients similar to these listed below is a concern.
That makes sense to me, (not much of a meat eater myself) and since this vet is particularly focusing on his research and expertise with kidney stones, plus I do want to nip this problem in the bud, I'm glad I only have two more bags of Taste of the Wild venison and then I'll stop buying it. I bought one of their Pacific Salmon last time, to try it out. Taste of the Wild was recommended by a Daybreak vet breeding English setters in Georgia, USA. To be honest it's not working out as well as I'd hoped, but at the same time, Claire is definitely getting older...I feel the same way too, sometimes, like, just let me chill on the couch now... I've also discovered the supermarket has some leftover cuts of fish cheaply, so I can get that once or twice a week for the doggie soup.
