Well, Hope has done great with the Duck, Duck Goose variety mixed in with her Ziwipeak!

Next we will be introducing the Rabbit variety.

Thanks!

Karen, I've been awol for a while so I may have missed the reason for you switching food for your girls, so I''m going to ask it now. Why are you switching up from ZP? Are you just adding in the S&C for variety or are you getting rid of the ZP for good? Curious because I deviated from the ZP right before I went and got crazy and got another chi, but now both are back on the ZP. I trust your dog food judgement, so that is why I'm being nosy. Also, while I'm jacking your thread, do you know anything about Darwin's?? I need to just pick a food and go with it!!

Thanks in advance

Amy

Ditto, I value your judgement also, so I was wondering what supplements you add to their food.
Thanks,
Karen

I have not heard of Darwin's. I will have to go check it out! I am super happy that premades are getting so much attention and appear to be popping up more and more.

I do not think that I can ever safely move Hope off ZP. Too risky so I am looking to supplement and also offer protein variety. They (ZP) are coming out with a Beef variety soon and rabbit (it is available canned but not air dried) is in testing.

Since they cannot get to that fast enough for me, I want to help her tolerance of different proteins as soon as possible so am looking around.

Her holistic Vet explained that Lamb is a warm animal and that would not have been good for her system. It was not. She also encouraged me to remove chicken (freeze dried treats) and that has made a positive difference.

She asked if I had offered her Duck/Goose and I had not. Tried S&C treats in Duck and she did well and then branched out to the Duck/Goose dried patties but more as a topper as has been shared here as well. She has done great with these changes.

I plan to order the rabbit, in S&C next and then hoping that the beef will be out soon in ZP. If I had a rotation of 4 or more proteins I'd be happy. They get fish oil and the ZP has the green-lipped mussels so they already have Venison, Fish, Duck and Goose. I'd like to add Beef and/of Rabbit as well and then I feel as if they would be well covered.

Karen,

Still confused. Why do you want to move Hope (and the others??) off ZP? Are you unhappy with it? Also, you have not mentioned venison (which is what my girls are on.) Sorry to be nosy, but I want to make sure there isn't a problem with the ZP (and as I said before, I trust your example.) Sorry if I am just being dense and missing a big chunk of the puzzle...

Amy

I would NEVER want to move them from ZP. It is such a great food and they all do so well on it! Right now though, she can only tolerate the Venison and I want her (and the others) to get a variety of protein sources in their food. Since ZP does not have a Duck/Goose or Rabbit, I have to try adding others but INTO her bowl of ZP rather than as a replacement.

Stella and Chewy's has a rabbit variety? Cool! Will have to try it for my two. I tried the frozen Primal rabbit and they didn't love it.

Our store doesn't carry the rabbit S&C's. At least last I checked. They only just got in the Venison S&C's but that does not good since mine get venison ZP once in a while. LOL I'll have to ask about the Rabbit....
