Thank you mordy! So basically...I will be keeping my kibble the same and top with the evo ...happy dog!


One more ques...what ratio should I go for...I was thinking 3/4 kibble to 1/4 part of the can evo... Or can I do 1/2 and 1/2..what would be your recommendation?
I am also adding salmon oil(grizzley) to the food..am I in any danger of too much fat? She is a small dog.

Andrew, how old is your dog? I wouldn't feed a large breed dog EVO until at least 2 years.

Abbygirl, you can mix whichever way you like. Canned food is more natural for a dog to eat than dry food and easier to process for the body than dry food though.

You should be fine with the fish oil too, the NB kibble is prettty low in fat.

Default Evo

Yeah I feed him Evo, is that wrong? He is 7 months old... I must have misunderstood on the food, should I be feeding him something else? Thought I read on the bag and their site that it was for ALL LIFESTAGES?

For all lifestages is correct, but it's not suitable specifically for large and giant breed puppies, since they have vastly different requirements from small tomedium puppies and adult dogs.

The lifestafges designations do not distinguish between breed sizes.

Mordy--she developed a slight cough then gag the other night and does it off and on through the day..night some...should I go to vet or wait a couple days...I don't have tons of money so I don't want to run to the vet every time something weird happens...is there something I should look for to know if this is serious. She is eating and playing well.Just a wierd cough/gag every now and again and a couple times at night--been 2 days now.

Abbygirl - I would give it a couple more days and observe closely. If it gets worse, take her to the vet.

In regards to the seameal - it's a nice supplement, but not something I'd call a "must have".
