Types of Food For Havanese
I've been tortured by our vet who insists that we get Cassidy onto one of his Science Diet formulas of food. But, EVERY vet I've seen has advised Science Diet or Royal Canine...bought from them, of course.
Cassidy had been on Hills ID formula because of a sensitive digestive tract since we got him. Four Parasite tests later, it's negative for ALL parasites.
I've weaned him off (very slowly) onto a Duck and Potato formula (Natural Balance LID) as the ID is pure corn, corn and a bit of chicken and more corn. It was great for acute phases but, I cannot stomach him being on strictly a corn diet. He's now nearly 11 months old.
So, it's time to switch him over to something else because (according to the vet), Natural Balance LID is pure "puppy food" being "All Stages" and would be too much for him as an adult dog. Again, he insists on food bought from him, which is way past price with his mark-ups.
I had all of my animals on a formulation of Science Diet but, this baby, I am shying away from it because I have had nothing but health issues with my pets, in spite of the cheerleading vets over this food.
Anyone else finding that vets are over-promoting foods from them?
Any suggestions as to good foods for Havanese?
