I know, it's scary. We were up there last September and had to go to a vet (Neb had a UTI; our vets called with the results just as we were about to hike, opened up the hatch and saw Neb's penis was oozing stuff - hadn't been like that 20 minutes before - so we were motivated to have it treated and our vets called in to the vet's there - we went straight into town, he got an abx shot, then back off hiking.

I can't believe its been nine years...I remember when you got her. She's an amazing pup with an amazing Mom. Lisa, your an excellent example of what pet parents go through when we really love these pups. We never give up until we find what helps.

Feeding Your Puppy
07/01/20 01:59 AM
Welcome to the boards welcome I switch my pups to an All Life Stages adult food at 6 months. Never had a problem with hips or Pano with any of my pups. I did all kinds of calculations on the calcium levels with different foods and really didn't come up with a problem. I also spoke to the company that makes my dog food and was assured it was safe.

Lisa is right. There's a concern that some dog foods cause diet related DCM in dogs. A common theme they are finding is dog food that has peas, pea protein and legumes in the top 5 ingredients could be contributing to it. There's another ingredient in there, just can't remember at this moment. Apparently, this condition mostly affects the Goldens, but GSDS have developed it. I feed Victor's Hi Pro Plus, so far so good.

Prior to Victor's I fed Taste of the Wild and Merrick. I never had a problem with either food, but they are both on the DCM list so I didn't want to take any chances.

Just wanted to add that there is a difference between "Adult" dog food and "All life Stages". The "All Life Stages can be fed to puppies, the "Adult' is for adult dogs only. I didn't realize that until one day when I was reading the TOTW Website.

Good luck with your pup. Do you have any pictures?
