    DefaultFood reccommendation for 7 Month Black Lab

    We have gone from Eukaneuba to pro Plan, to Innova adult, to Natural Balance now because of a possible allergy. It's becoming more likely his symptoms are the result of the enviornment so I want to put him on a premium food with a bit more protein and fat then NB. Anyone have any good reccomendations? I am leaning towards Ntures Variety, Canidae, or Innova LB. Thanks.

    dogs typically do not develop allergies until they are between the ages of 1 and 3 years of age. Food allergies make up very little of allergic dog cases. Since you think it's environmental. Rule that out. If the dog is doing fine on it's current food, leave it alone. There is no reason to go back on the rollercoaster if you don't need to.

    That is a lot of food switching on a young dog and you have no difinative reason why to continue to switch, just because of a "possible allergy". That is no diagnosis.

    What were your dogs symtoms prior to your first food switch?

    There is no magic food you can switch to that will answer all your questions. I suggest testing the dog for allergies or other health issues first.
