I am going to buy my brother's dog some kind of grain free (canned only) dog food to try. She has white legs and feet, and they are orange/yellow from her licking them. She is also itchy on the rest of her body.

I'm sure she has allergies and I thought we'd try changing her dog food first before getting any tests.

I told him I'd ask the experts on here what brand is well liked by fussy eaters?
Thanks!

The dog will like whatever brand you don't buy- lol . Seriously pick up the smallest cans you can find of half a dozen brands to start. See what she will eat.

By the way, using canned grain free won't help if she is also eating dry food with grain. I'm assuming you're feeding canned only but just in case- it's all got to be grain free. That includes treats too.

You are spot on in that she may have food allergies to grain. . Expect it to take a good six weeks to stop if that is the case although it could take less time. But it won't be overnight.

I feed my girl Taste of the Wild dry kibble but I make treats for her using the canned variety. It was one of the better brands nutritionally and it was readily available in my area. I buy mine at a local Petco or Tractor Supply Store. Just be sure to change the food gradually so you don't cause GI distress.

Thanks for the suggestions both of you.

Are there any favorite brands anyone else can suggest for fussy eaters?
