Nepsa Posted December 30, 2008 Report Share Posted December 30, 2008 We will be following the vet's orders on her specialized diet so her body can heal from the parvo. She's only 5 months old and very THIN from being sick and throwing up/diarrhea. She's on the mend...but is still fragile. I need some ideas what puppy food to give her that's high in fat and will help her gain weight and isn't "China based" brand. I thought about Solid Gold..but she needs something in high fat and in lamb/rice. I suspect she has very sensitive stomach like Aspen did. Aspen did well on lamb and rice nutromax and she went on fish/potato with Solid Gold and did well on that. But Asker seems MORE sensitive than Aspen so I need to get the right puppy food to ensure she gains weight and isn't hard on her digestion system. I'm considering Wellness, Solid Gold, Merrick, etc. But it has to be puppy food high in fat. Also she didn't do well on "Taste of the Wild" so that one is out. Vet told us to start her with Iams....puppy food. I'm not too sure about that. I rather she has better quality food that isn't made with byproducts and has beets/corn in it, etc but is high in fat. We already have another pup who is very heavy boned and very CHUCKY..she doesn't need to gain the weight. She is doing well on the "Taste of the Wild". It looks like we need to buy 2 type of food; one in high fat for Asker and Taste of the Wild for Nepsa and our other dog who is also doing fine on it. It's harder to juggle the dog food on all the dogs with all their varied needs which was why I picked "Taste of the Wild". It's a no go with Asker and Kira who both don't do well on it but other two do great on it. Asker has a long way to gain back the weight and to heal. Will post pictures when we get her home today from the vet hospital. I can't wait to see her today!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
