My dog is 6 months old and weighs 68 lbs. My vet told me I need to change him over to adult dog food and only give him 3 cups of food a day due to his joints and leg problems.
Due to the recall on dog food, I dont know what to give him. One of the only brands that I know that isnt on the list is Pedigree. I heard its not that good for dogs, so my question is what do you reccomend. I would like to mix dry food and wet. I figure the wet will curb his appetite now that I have brought him down for 5 1/2 to 3 cups a day.

Also have you ever heard of giving your dog riccota cheese for calcuim.

Any suggestion on Dry and wet food

Please do some research on dog food before choosing one. Pedigree is one of the worst dog foods out there. There are much better food for a comparable- and sometimes even cheaper price.

Why do you want to mix wet and dry? Most dogs do just fine on dry food.

I feed Diamond Naturals- which I get for 17.99 for a 40 pound bag. It's a good quality food, and has not been affected by the latest recalls. It's available at pet stores and feed stores. Costco even has a version of it called Kirkland.

Purina Pro Plan is another good food that has not been affected. Some Purina products are wonderful like Pro Plan- others not good at all- like Beneful.

Nutro is another good brand. Their dry food was not affected.

My girls get the Pro Plan Sensitive Skin & Stomach, it's salmon based. If you want something to "fill them up" since you are cutting back the food, often times people use UNsalted green beans that have been rinsed & mixed with the dry kibble.
