Karen, I'm curious about what the vet had to say about why Hope didn't do well on the lamb.
Krystal, I would like to feed straight Ziwipeak, but Charlie has anal gland issues on it - really bad infected anal glands. I think it is because it makes his poo really soft and too small an amount. I thought maybe i was feeding too much but when I tried cutting down the amount, he got too skinny. He does really well on half kibble and half Ziwipeak. Taz can eat it straight with no problems. I guess they are all different.

That's really interesting. When I was feeding 100% ziwi, I also tried cutting down the amount to see if it would make a difference and it didn't. I wonder if maybe Odie just can't handle it as part of every meal. I might try doing the same as I do with raw and do purely ziwi meals a few times a week. Here's hoping!

Lamb ZP is NOT a success in our household! Horrible skin and coat! So much dandruff it was like snow. Switched back to Venison & Fish and in less than a week the dandruff was gone. Not a speck. We feed lamb treats here and there, but the dogs will never be on a lamb diet again. I'd try the beef, but I am not sure whether it'll work for us. For some reason the Venison & Fish has been just brilliant.
