    DefaultDog Food.

    Hello!

    When I got Smiley, they gave me a free package of purina one food. I am not so sure if he likes that. However, I do not know if that is good food or not. Using google, just gave me two answers "crap" and "not crap." How about the costco dog food? Also, I just change his diet from his "kennel food" to Purina One. Therefore, I am not sure if should change again.

    do you know what the rescue was feeding at the shelter? did they tell you? what is "kennel food"

    and no I would certainly not start changing to yet another food right away. if you are already moving to purina one then stay with it for a few months while he settles in - in the meantime you can research and look at changing

    If you can figure out what WEAN EN is, then that is the kennel food. Otherwise I will have to ask.

    Oh, I just see, weaning just means the "changing." I think they feed purina one to the dogs. At least, that is what the paper (biography) says.

    If you like what you see on the ONE, then continue to feed it. If you want to upgrade, try the ProPlan (not the Shredded Blend), which is one step up from the ONE.

    If the dog does well on a food, no need to change. Changing for the sake of changing can cause problems for the dog. If it isn't broken, don't fix it.

    I think he does not like Purina ONE. He does not eat the entire food, just if I hold the bowl in his face. (But maybe that's just what he wants )

    Until today, it was 4 cups a day. But I will reduce it to 3 cups a day.

    I feed mine around 3. Depends on the food as all is not equal for my dogs. For me if they leave any it is too much or if they start putting on weight it is too much. Mine will tell me if they haven't had enough. I know most Labs will eat until they burst. Erns only eats as much a he needs.

    Mine would love to get 4 cups a day. Erns would leave half and Tess would eat both ending up the size of a small coffee table.
