The coat now is good.
Can only be bought from pet clinics.
Cost $28 for 6 lbs i think.
Same for me...my doggie is eating Innova and the coat is now super....

The last time I sent for grooming, had to shave it botak. Now it really looks like a mini schnauzer .

the new brand azmira supposedly very delicious..haben tried thou..

wah!! All super premium food....if I feed my 2 boys these, I'll probably be eating grass myself.

try not to feed abady long term....heard that abady is too concentrated nutrients....many dogs cannot take it.

Now my 2 boys are on Avoderm Active care Lamb and brown rice. Gotta switch to something cheaper already. going to adopt 2 more dogs....

science diet is one of the oilest among most common brand. Smells very good also (one of the strongest smelling ones as well) most dogs I encounter love science diet.
Can't remember, there is one ingredient inside science diet not safe, or something like that, because of that, alot of ppl don recommend.

My 9mth old schnauzer is on Pinnacle Trout and Sweet potatoes with abit of Solid Gold Seameal. So far so good. I switched her from SD to Pinnacle as SD uses by-product chicken meal which is not good.

Every Saturday, I'll feed her Pinnacle Chicken & Veggies canned food. :cool:

My 3 JRTs are taking Eagle Pack (dry) and the can one I forgot the name. All I remembered it was mock food. I'm thinking to change the dry one as they seem to have some skin problems... Asked the vet at ARC b4, told me JRTs are known to have this problem...

Any suggestions? :confused:

There so many different kind of solid gold dry and can food in the pet shop. Which one is actually suitable for my 10 old golden retriever who had been eating pedigree for all his life !
Solid Gold, Holistique(deep green package) is excellent for older dogs. Had been feeding my adopted Shih Tzu on Pedigree previously, with no idea how 'good' it was since he's my first dog. He had skin problem when he came too, the common type from heat, pretty bad shape. But after some recommendations, we switched to Solid Gold, Holistique. It's natural fish , gives proteins and does wonders for his coat. Really thankful. The skin problem cleared up after some medicated shampoo baths. Put on weight with excellent appetite ever since. We feed him on rice+chicken breast meat+carrots(for eyes)+SG fish(10~15%) everday cuz he refuses on a pure dry food diet. Sometime my mum change menu and give boiled egg, minced pork etc.

Here's the description on the dry food from solid gold's webbie for your convenience:

Dry food formula made with Oatmeal, Rye, Menhaden Herring and Potatoes. Ideal for less active adult or senior dogs, to maintain total health. Perfect for those dogs who require less protein and fat.

Protein, Min 18%
Fat, Min 6%
Fiber, Max 4%
Moisture, Max 10%
Calories per cup, 336


Ingredients
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Oatmeal | Rye | Menhaden Fish Meal | Potatoes | Salmon Oil | Sesame Oil | Almond Oil | Lentils | Dried Sea Vegetation | Green Tea | Garlic | Spearmint | Pumpkin Meal | Quinoa | Cranberry Meal | Apple Meal | Taurine | Carotene | Choline Chloride | Calcium Carbonate | Vitamin E Supplement | Iron Proteinate | Vitamin A Supplement | Zinc Proteinate | Niacin Supplement | Folic Acid | Thiamine | Pyridoxine Hydrochloride | Manganese Proteinate | Ethylenediamine Dihydriodide |

Thumbs up Solid Gold Holistic Is The Best

Well, I'm feeding this to my 3 dogs; Jack russell / Shetland / Malamute... all with this godly Solid Gold Holistic... Its a fish diet.... Its so gd my dogs love it and they never have any skin problems/poop problems or anything... try it...

YOU'LL LOVE IT.... ;D Pay abit more for Quality food...

I went to some pet shops and they recommend me some bull**** brands... I dont wanna mention the brands... well, and the worst thing is, they start complaining that Science diet and solid gold are the worst brands... WOW...

Why would everyone be using them if they are the WORST... and why are they're companies so much larger then those bull**** brands...

Well, I still believe in top BRANDS...

I fed my golden retriever ANF and the **** was smelly...until we switched to Eagle Pack, then **** smell is near undetectable haha.

one of my frens feed his golden retriever w Pedigree for 10+ yrs and never has any problem w the dog. I do find Pedigree packet meat cubes smell delicious to me also.
