    DefaultAcana and gases

    Since I switch to Acana (chicken) I noticed Cassie has gases often. When she was on Pro Plan she rarely had gases.

    Is it a good idea If I switch Acana (chicken) to some other Acana? Let's say lamb.

    Plus she has more soft poop than before. Sometimes she has normal, solid poop but most of the time are soft.




    If dogs do not go to heaven, then I prefer to follow them where they go.

    I think she's trying to tell you something. Just because a website says a food is better just because of the ingredients doesn't make it better for the dog. This is my complaint about those types of websites. Rather than keep switching this poor dog's food, why not go back to what was working for her in the first place? Old saying, "FEED WHAT WORKS".

    Lots of members feed ProPlan, why'd you switch?

    Agree with Laura - feed what works!

    ProPlan did for Diesel what Acana seems to be doing for Cassie. Different dog, different digestive system, different reaction. I don't recall why you stopped feeding ProPlan. If she has had soft stools on both foods perhaps consider going grain free. If she was doing well on ProPlan then go back to that.

    A pup's system is quite sensitive while they are still growing, continually screwing around with her diet is not helping her. Consider your choices carefully before just jumping on a bandwagon.

    I talked with vet today and he told me if the gases and itching continues we'll consider another food.
