Ok, so like I mentioned before, I have absolutely no small dog experience.
I was not happy with the food Sidney was getting from the friend/breeder we got him from, so I did some consulting with the owner of the pet store I go to (in addition to dog food analysis).
I spent a lot of time at the store going over different kinds of foods for him. I currently feed my dogs RAW, but when I was feeding kibble I fed both Orijen and TOTW (taste of the wild). I believe in the grain free foods being better in general. To me, why would you feed grains when they are just for filler.
But, again I know nothing about smaller dogs needs. With the guidance of Patricia (store owner) I decided on BG Buffalo. It is rated a 5 star food on the dog food analysis site, so I felt comfortable with that.
I was told that since he is a small breed dog and not getting a lot of exercise it was better to stick with 34% protein and under. Which is why I didn't get the kibble that i use to buy.
He's been eating it fine. But I am concerned that it is the best for him. I am not really sure of the nutritional requirements for this breed so any advice you can give will be much appreciated.
I would love for my mom to feed him raw, but I really don't think she will. I think that will be too confusing for her and I want to keep this as easy as possible.
Thanks for all your help
