I started my pup Diezel on Natures Recipe Lamb + Rice kibble, and he took to it...but the was runny.

Per this forum's advice, I switched him to Wellness Super5Mix, and his stool is less frequent, more solid, plus, he does not eat as much (which I assume means he's holding in more nutrients).

I'd recommend Wellness brand to anybody personally.

from natures recipe to wellness is an improvement but i you wanna see drastic change go grain free i went from super5mix wellness core and its the best food i ever used! I alternate between the poultry and ocean varieties, personally i think the ocean is better but i like switching up the nutrient sources and ocean smells a lil bit more than normal kibble but if u use a resealable container like i do you wont notice it except at feeding times. i didnt think grain free was anything special until tried it myself and now ill never go back, better coat, better teethe, better stool better everything.....

i feed my pups Taste of the Wild! my husky had a lot of problems pooping, he would get diarrhea for no reason and i found he had problems very frequently... when i switched to TOTW it became less often, completely solid, and just... perfect! my dogs love it too! there's prairie kind, which i like the best, i think waterfowl and some other kind like river or something or salmon.. i dunno, i mix it up a little bit but prairie is their favorite... i love it!

We feed Taste of the Wild High Prairie. Dogs live it!

Loki has a food allergies and will throw up foods w/ grains.

Daddy Diezel, many feeds use grains such as corn (most common), wheat, rice and other grains as filler for their product. It's cheaper and means that they can make more food for less and make more profit from it. Many store brands in fact are mostly filler. A canine however would not naturally exist on grains in the wild. So it stands to reason that a dog food free of grains is the natural choice when choosing a kibble. Higher protein and no unnecessary grains means more energy for your dog.
