    Default EVO

    I had been feeding Dudley Innova EVO for months, I went to purchase
    somemore a while back and the uneducated employee scared the
    pants of me, (well not in the store)
    He informed me it causes kidney problems, I have tried ever other kibble
    on the market and he does not seem to eat it he will hold out for 2 to 3 days I decided to try giving him the EVO again and he gobbled it up.
    Has anyone in United Kingdom ever heard of this.
    I am going to switch him back to raw, which he was originally eating
    about 1 year ago. How do I introduce the raw if he is presently just
    started eating EVO again ????????????????

    I am concerned about just giving him straight EVO as it is protein based
    so how do I get the veggies in, I heard that if the veggies are not
    pureed the dog does not get any nutrients from them.
    I also called the company about the coments the employee said to me
    about EVO they advised this is not true. I remember when I was feeding
    completely raw, whenever I would take the chill out of his food in the
    microwave he took off, that is why I stopped I am thinking of trying
    another brand.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I just started feeding my pups a dehydrated food from Honest Kitchen. Our holistic vet recommended it. It looks really great and the dogs love it. It's wet, not kibble. See if you can get a sample from the company. If not - I can mail you a packet to see if Dudley likes it.

    Rory's Mom, which of the dehydrated ones do you give Rory? I see they have 3 different kinds: Verve, Force and Embark.

    Do you feed them just this food or do you add other ingredients to it?

    Since it's so expensive, I'm currently mixing it in w/ other food. More variety that way, also. I'm going to pick up canned Innova. I have the turkey one right now (Embark?). It has no grain, which may help w/ my lab's allergies, too. .

    The 4lb tub has 43cups in it and they advise 1cup day for dogs under 20lbs. And I think it resales for about $43? So not too bad. a dollar a day! But my lab should get 2 cups/day, so that puts me at about $90/month which is a bit high for this starving student.

    FYI, Chester LOVES the Innova canned. I buy the little cans and put 1/4 can in with his dry food and he gobbles it all up. I will try the Embark and see how His Highness likes it.

    Thanks for the info. I will give it a try.

    Give Rory a bug hug from me and a lick on the nose from Chester!

    Hi Kendall
    I called them they and left a message, what luck they actually have
    a supplier in Canada that is 5 minutes from my house.
    I am going to see if they can give me some samples.
    I don't care what it costs as long as it is good for him and he likes it.
    Going to see the possiblity of a 2nd Cav in a few weeks I am so excited
    I want to try and get Dudley settled on a food before purchasing a
    puppy (Mom should be in season anytime)
    But she has a tri that she is just waiting to see if he is show potential

    Will give me a feel to see how Dudley reacts.
    Thanks Kendal, I have had a lot of feeding issues or manipulating issues

    Like the fact it has no wheat.
    I told my son Daniel whom is a Celiac and allergic to wheat/gluten
    that Dudley is Celiac also. icon_yikes
    Thanks you are always full of knowledge for a starving student
    you do a great job with your doggies.

    My kids just love that picture of Rory on that pumpkin.

    Hi Kendall
    After spending much time on the phone this afternoon I was able
    to find a supplier, it is about $50.00 Cdn for a 4lb bag. They don't
    have samples, and the supplier that is close to my house only has
    it in 10 lb bags I am not buying one of those until I am sure he likes
    it, the receptionist is going to ask her boss to call me tommorow
    to see if I can get a sample.


    Have you ever heard of another raw based food made by NRG
    apparently it is the same except less expensive.
    I can't find their website.

    The NRG diet looks good. I don't know anything about it personally.

    Let me know if you need a sample of the Honest Kitchen. My holistic vet gave me a sample packet, so I know they exist. Too bad the distributor doesn't have them. Hopefully the company can mail you one?? If not, I'll mail you a sample.

    Hope Chester likes it, GudrunTheRed! (p.s. WHAT does this name mean???)

    A great many people in my club feed Honest Kitchen and swear by it. I don't feed it only because my guys are so doing so well on CA Natural and it took so long to get them on something that agreed with them. The gal who heads up Honest Kitchen came and was a guest speaker at our club. They really know their stuff!!
