I'm in love with Maury, our new furry friend. He's a 1.5 year old pitbull and we got him last week. I am not a dog fan but he's rapidly becoming my favorite man in the house!
Maury was eating Pedigree at the shelter. They sent us home with some and I bought another bag while I figured out what to feed him. He's eating it now and seems happy but his behavior suggests that he's not feeling great. He's got loose stools and keeps eating grass. It's not good. He's a laid back boy who sleeps a lot but I'm wondering how much of that is his nature vs. him not feeling well. He's very skinny and the shelter agreed that he needs to be fattened up. We're taking him to the vet at the shelter tonight but I worry about unbiased opinions about food given that the operation is sponsored in large part by Pedigree.
So what do you feed a dog? Pedigree gets lousy reviews because it's full of fillers. There are all sorts of fancy dog foods out there that are all natural but and low on fillers but they're very expensive. I'm also reading lots of review sites and am not sure which ones are actually reputable. When I posted a request for ideas on Facebook I keep hearing about dog foods that get bad reviews or have tons of recalls.
Any help would be appreciated! I'm clueless and worried about my boy!
