Max has had a bag of NB Sweet Potato and Salmon and he has been doing pretty well. It is time for more food (I have enough to switch) and I was think of trying to find something with more protein, made for large breeds, plus I read that the nightshade family isn't good for arthritic dogs.
He has bad hips (he's only 10 months) and takes glucosamine daily in pill form and that seems to help since he is more active and ready to fo in the morning.
The food I was most likely going to try was Innova Large Breed, which I can easily get a half mile from here.
Any other suggestions that a person can get without mail ordering? Any experience with this food.
At this age, I wouldn't let the "Large Breed" designation control your choices. I think you're making a good choice getting away from the potato-based foods, there's quite a bit of evidence that it's not good for arthritic dogs. Unfortunately, that eliminates the Innova line of foods.
Can you get Eagle Pack foods? The Eagle Pack Holistic Chicken has 26% protein, and no potatoes.
