Alright so currently between my two and my boyfriend's two huskies, we are feeding them two foods.
Kolby is currently eating the Natural Balance Duck & Potato. His allergies have been pretty good since his usual flare up in the spring, but he is looking a bit thin. He's about 8 years old, weighs ~60lbs and eats about 3 cups a day.
Abbey, Luna and D (the huskies) are all eating ProPlan Performance. Abbey weighs ~45lbs, eats about 2 cups a day and is very active. Luna weighs ~55lbs, eats about 2 cups a day and is moderately active. The girls are doing well on this food and are not overweight or too thin. D weights ~70lbs and even after cutting him back to about 2 cups a day, he is still gaining weight. He's pretty lazy, so I think this food may have too much fat and protein for him.
There are the details.. I'd really like to avoid buying three separate foods for them, but due to their dietary restrictions and me trying to keep to two foods, this is hard!
Any suggestions for different foods to try would be welcome. I'm trying to keep costs down, so I'd like to stay around the $40-$50/bag cost range.
I have to feed 2 different foods. Tess could eat Ernies, but her new food seems better for her allergies, and he could never eat hers.
I think you need to keep feeding Kolby the Duck for his allergies so that is a done deal. Can the others eat it or is it expensive? Can you feed the others cheaper food.
Maybe cut Ds food back a little. When Tesssa starts getting beefy she has just over a cup.
You say 2 then 3. Is the other dog having something different.

I edited and puts Ds in while you were posting.
Tessa has 1 and a bit cups twice a day. Can you cut Ds back.

If every dog of mine needed to eat different foods, I'd do it. You have to feed what's best for the dog regardless if it's convenient for you or not.

I have been looking up foods similar to PP Performance that have a little bit lower protein/fat and are grain free. I found a couple I might look into, but you are right, Laura!
I'd look at Earthborn Holistics.
