Rated 5 out of 5 by LucyLover PICKY PUPPIES FAVORITE
I swear we have probably tried every brand or variety of dry dog food that there is. Ever since our Lil' Lucy was just a baby Boxer, she has always been a pretty picky eater, or at the least becomes easily bored with her food.
I am sure that part of the reason is due to her being so ill when we got her. From about the time she was 10 weeks old until she was 13-14 weeks, we had to feed her with a monojet (needle-less syringe) full of liquid puppy food & vitamins literally every hour. She had double pneumonia, and with how fast her lungs had filled with water, her Vet told me straight out that her odds of surviving this was unlikely. Now he did say it in nicer words, or try to, because there is no way to sugar coat something like that.
But between her strong will and our love, we fought her back to health. THANK GOD.... But it seems like the feeding battle has never really seemed to end. Even with mixing in things like chicken and other types of meats Lucy would still not eat. At least not consistently or thoroughly, which meant that we would end up wasting the majority of it. Not to mention how irregular her bowel movements where from the constant changes to her diet.
So our search continued, trying to find a food appealing to our growing puppy, but also one that our non-growing pocket could afford. The consideration of just wet food was something we where starting to think might be our only option. Though we had really hoped to eventually have her on a wholly dry food diet, for our sake and for hers.
So when we where able to buy Iams Proactive Smart Puppy Large Breed a second time, and then a third time, we knew we may actually have a fighting chance at the dry food idea. Now many more bags of it later, we are now successfully mixing in adult food. Which is Perfect, considering her 2nd Birthday is right around the corner, which will make our Boxer a puppy no more... Other than in our eyes and heart...
So we say Thank You to Iams, for our little girls health and helping keep our sanity in the matter...
Sincerely The Widowski Family, Rob, Crystal, Alyssa, Mia & Lucy Widowski
