It didn't take long for me to discover the true motivation. Brody was prone to uncontrollable diarrhea.
Long story short, after many weeks of frustration, gaining recognition on a first name basis a the carpet rental place, and much money spent at the vet, I learned that Brody suffers from IBS - Irritable Bowel Syndrome. (Interesting side fact: The vet I take him to happens to be the vet his previous owner took him to. They know Brody very well, and he loves them. But they did NOT know he had diarrhea problems. Apparently his previous owner spent two years cleaning up after him without ever being motivated enough to mention his issues to the vet or spend the money to have him tested.)
He was put on medication and a prescription diet. The food alone cost $80 a week, and while it DID do the trick of managing his issues, that's a LOT of money to spend on food for one dog.
So I began researching IBS and how to manage it with diet. Everything pointed to trying out better, higher quality foods - either a raw diet, or higher end dry food.
I tried many different options, but most of them proved to be too rich for Brody. I finally came across Nature's Variety.
Brody is now 7 years old. He weighs 105 pounds (an ideal weight for his large frame) -- the vet said he'd never weigh more than 80. He needs no medication other than occasionally some Metamucil as a fiber supplement to help him maintain gut health. He still has the energy of a puppy. His coat is shiny. I can even feed him treats or other mild variations from his diet (in strict moderation).
And a large bag of Nature's Variety lasts my TWO German Shepherds two weeks, which beats the heck out of $80 for one week's worth for Brody.
I won't say that Nature's Variety is automatically right for your dog. I tried a number of high end brands, brands that I know other dogs thrive on, and they didn't work for me. But it has done wonders for my pups. Maybe it will for yours. Or maybe another brand will work better.
Whether you just want healthy dogs, or you are dealing with health issues, it's worth your time and effort to look into the higher end brands like Nature's Variety, Blue Buffalo, Innova, etc. There's a good chance you'll find one right for your dog(s). And while they will cost a little more per bag than the mainstream grocery store crap, keep in mind that you're getting a higher quality food, too. You won't have to feed them as much to get them the nutrition they need, because this stuff isn't loaded with fillers, so in the end, the cost works out either the same, or even less.
Then there were some premium foods with a little less protein but they wouldn't eat it! Doesn't matter how nutritious a food is if they won't dig in. So my search continued in the grain free department until I finally decided to try a food with just a little grains but still using premium ingredients. Besides, grain free uses potatoes, high quality foods like this one use brown rice. I hardly see the problem and I personally prefer brown rice over potatoes anyway.
So to my amazement and absolute joy both of my dogs eat this up with enthusiasm--and their poop has been small and firm! Being someone who picks up my dogs poop everyday I can't stress enough how awesome that is! Maybe it's the freeze dried RAW coating that makes it taste a bit better? I'm trying to teach my dogs to communicate using smoke signals so maybe one day I'll find out.
There haven't been any stomach issues, the ingredients are high quality, and I like how Natures Variety has their own manufacturing plant in Lincoln Nebraska--the good ol' USA! And they only make their own line of food--not like other companies who outsource and produce 50 different kibbles on the same manufacturing line.
So in the end I truly believe I have found the mecca of kibble! Of course each dog responds differently to any type of food but it's working great for us! Plus they still get some table scraps at dinner too...and some salmon strip treats, and Greenies, and chicken strips, and the occasional bully stick. Spoiled? Nah--Just part of the fam! =)
