I have an 8-week old goldendoodle puppy. Is it better to do grain or grain-free food? Also, any recommendations for food?

My vet said grain free is linked to cardiomyopathy in dogs so he was vehemently opposed to grain free diet

like

Please please please don’t feed your dog grain free foods. It leads to DCM (https://todaysveterinarypractice.com/study-grain-free-diet-for-dogs-leads-to-canine-heart-disease/). I feed my golden Purina Pro Plan (PPP) Sensitive Skin and Stomach (it is fish based). For a puppy, they have a PPP chicken-free formula as well.

Please everyone research DCM — it is terrible to hear about owners learning about it too late.

Oh, I thought I read that OP said their pup has a chicken allergy but that was someone else. Also, I pretty much assume all Goldens do.

OP If your pup is good with chicken, no reason to limit it. Just keep an eye out for an itchy belly.

my puppy loves the Blue Buffalo Puppy Life Protection formula!

@D1: 👋🏼 aww

Listen to your vet - I tried Fromm’s grain free and it didn’t agree and we ended up on Science Diet sensitive skin [which has both chicken and grain]. no one right food for all dogs.

Purina pro puppy blend was fantastic for my wheaten puppy! Recommended by my vet and perfect for sensitive belly

Purina pro is a more high quality / expensive version of the brand. Between my vet rec and having never read a bad thing about it online I feel very comfortable feeding it to my dog

I give him dry food because he never liked can food. I give him Acana.

My dogs' vet is against grain free food unless the dog has an actual grain allergy.

Good morning!

Still trying to figure out this whole Fishbowl thing, so here goes my first post.

I would love to get into provider credentialing, but all employers I've looked at want at least 3 years of experience. So, I'm looking at Provider Network Coordinator roles, because I'm finding some of those roles don't need AS MUCH experience. I'm a RHIT, and have been working in healthcare for nearly 10 years.

Any input on employers is appreciated!

Is there any merit in bringing this offer back to my current employer and asking them to match? Or will I just get laughed out of the room?

Have you ever been afraid of how much you love something? This may sound silly, but I feel that way about my dog. If something were to happen to him I would be destroyed. I don’t know what I would do.

My catahoula mix loves swimming, of course. However, she's been swimming in the stream when it's at or below freezing. She seems completely unphased, but she has a spaniel-type coat. Not exactly built for cold. I checked her breed to make sure she didn't have any random husky/malamute (for other reasons - she was very into pulling objects with a harness). I assume if she's cold, she'll show it. Shivering and such. But I don't want her to freeze!
