    Thank you so much - I will definately be changing Mindy's brand. I didn't realize how complicated this would be but I am so glad I have found such great people to help me along the way. By the way she is 3-1/2 and I got her from a friend who rescued her from an abusive home so I want to make up for the bad things that she has already gone through.

    When you do switch remember to do it gradually over a 2 week time frame. Also, don't be surprised that if she starts to shed heavily or doesn't look great the first couple of months after you switch foods. I find that many dogs go through a 'de-tox' period when you switch to a better food and they definately shed more within a couple of weeks of switching food. Give her at least 3-4 months on a new food before you decide if you like it.

    I can't offer much help on the kind of food because I am a soon to be Lab owner but bless you for taking her and wanting to give her a forever happy place!
