I just wanted to check if it's ok to feed my 8 month old puppy a combo of primal freeze and ziwipeak?

Morning is 1 nugget of primal
Lunch is half nugget of primal
Dinner is half nugget of primal mix with ziwipeak ( a tablespoon) and salmon oil and coconut oil

By the way my puppy was an extremely fussy eater when she was on kibble and had to be handfed or she wouldn't eat. But since I introduced coconut oil into her food she has gone crazy for it. She seems to love the taste of coconut oil.

We don't get Stella & Chewy here but I am considering ordering some and switching the food around.

I wanted to check if what I'm doing is ok? Her poo is all good and no smell and her tear stain is improving a lot.

Anyone else primarily feeding their chi with these 2 brands of food? Please feel free to share your experiences and results

I switch between food brands and protein sources, but do typically limit the rotation between three brands in addition to their home cooked. My three regular brands are Stella & Chewy's, Nature's Variety and FreshPet (all are fed premade raw within these brands) for their morning feeding and then we usually do home cooked for the evening feeding, but sometimes I do repeat premade raw again if I'm running short on time or work later. I also like to switch protein sources every couples weeks, as my belief is it's help eliminate sensitivities and pickiness. I also add raw goat's milk to their morning meal. I've had great success doing this and it has created a pattern where my three are always excited to eat their meals to find out what they are getting that day and do not appear to have any sensitivities to any protein source and they have been introduced to a lot. I have done this routine with two out of my three since they were puppies with no problems.

That sounds like a good plan. These two brands are some of the best and the addition of salmon and coconut oil is good too.

I've never personally fed Primal (they don't sell it here) so I can't comment on the quantities, but I've fed Ziwipeak to my chis since they were puppies, along with other pre-made raw foods and homemade raw too. Feeding a variety of foods is a good idea, if she can handle it. That's what I do with my chis. I'm constantly switching between a few different brands and between all the flavours each offer. We usually do 1 meal Ziwi and 1 meal of another raw food each day and they're doing pretty well on that.
