Hi! It's been awhile since I've spoken to you all.
Tessa is doing great. She just got her last Core vaccine last Friday, and she's eating well, her stools have adjusted. There is no itching, no problems at all!
Still, when I went to my vet, they asked me what food I was feeding her, and I told them Fromm Duck and Sweet Potato, and they became extremely adamant that I should be feeding her a proper puppy food instead. Now I understand what they mean, of course, but I know a lot of you recommend Fromm (from what I understood, even as a puppy) and the woman who owns the pet shop helped me select it carefully, while looking at the protein levels and the fat, and this is the food I ended up with. She's doing very well on it. I'm certain that the food she is on is good, but my vet is being really annoying about it, and seems to think that I don't know how to care for my dog. Grrr!
Sigh, besides, I wouldn't want to put her through the hell of changing her food again after it took her a few weeks to adjust to it. What's your input on this? I'm just really iffed here, and I'm not certain what to do. It is a life-stages formula, of course, but they seem to be saying "that's not enough that's not enough". Gah!
I'd imagine the nutritional content and the ingredients are more important than what's slapped on the front of the bag. As soon as I had mentioned that it's a "life-stages" formula, the assistant had pulled a face, without even knowing the brand. I want to break something. I hate being seen as stupid or thought of as ignorant, especially when I try so hard.
I care a lot for Tessa, of course, and that's my primary concern.
Sorry about troubling you. What would have to say about this? Thanks a lot for your help.
