I hate to say it, but even if you bring ZP info with you to your vet clinic, it sounds like they will likely not approve of it anyway. I was scared to mention that Odie eats some ZP to the vet tech we saw, but she not only knew what it was, but has fed her dog raw before! She stopped feeding raw since because her dog had some issues but she recognized that ZP was a great food. She did suggest that I stick to Acana when I told her Odie was experiencing some diarrhea on the ZP, but I really liked her logic--the proof is in the dog. Honestly, I think that it's the same with humans and nutrition. Our governments tell us what to eat, and some (most) of the info is terrible.

I am sticking to it. The dogs love it, they have low stool volume and it is firm. They also never seem to have stomach upset (yet). Plus I can't get over how soft and shiny their coats are. A month on Ziwipeak shaped up Prince's coat so much. I can't wait to try my cat on the feline version. I just can't see anything bad about the food and like others have said, many, many little pups here seem to do very well on it. I do wonder how long everyone's dogs have been eating it. What is the long term record of the food? Has anyone fed it 10 plus years? (Assuming it has been around that long).

Toby's only at 6 months but I've never seen a dog as healthy and happy as him. I hope that his recent tummy troubles are not ZP related. We will both be devastated.

I would try ZP if it was accessible to me..unfortunately it isn't...I recently spent hours sitting in waiting rooms outside the ICU at the OVC...there were pamphlets on the tables all put out by Iams...( along with plaques all over the hospital thanking Iams for their contributions to the hospital..And I understand the need for the hospital to have large contributors ) It was interesting to read what they said about their products especially the Q & A's... apparently corn is a very " good " source of fiber for dogs somehow I find it hard to believe there is much benefit in eating something that looks almost the same coming out as it did going in( if you get my drift )

I am very lucky with my vet. He is in a teeny tiny office (only 2 chairs in the waiting room), and he is very low price. He doesn't try to push expensive tests (because he isn't trying to pay off the machines or his student loans- he's very old). He doesn't try to push any foods at all either, there's none in his office.
I'm getting my ZP on Friday! I'm so excited. I'm hoping this solves Sophie's skin issues.
