Food For Chows

Postby Tracer » Sun May 29, 2011 12:16 pm

Yesterday I brought home my 3rd chow puppy. I have not had a dog for 9 years. My question is with food. The breeder used IAMS which I won't feed to my chow. The puppy is 8 weeks old. I am thinking up feeding Embark dehydrated turkey and vegetables . And Orijen dry which is chicken turkey and fish based. The breeder said chicken based products gave chows hot spots. So that is my question. Also I lost one chow to the hper extended stomach. And that I don't want to go thru again.

Thanks\\

I'm feeding my chow chicken based Arden Grange and she's got a wonderful coat and everything is okay... no problems at all
My friend (she doesn't have a chow though) feeds her dog Orijen and is very happy with it so I suppose I'd recommend that one because I know her dog is healthy

I had a chow for many many years, she was extremly allergic to chicken. She would itch and itch and itch. As soon as we switched her to another brand she would clear up and you could tell she felt much better. So I think it just depends on the Chow. Good Luck

chicken based foods do not cause hot spots. It just depends on if your dog has allergies. One thing that i founf helpful in selecting a dog food is this.
