7 Habits: What is the best dry food for my 3 year old shih tzu?
I have tried Beneful and some kibbles and Bits and she gets sick and is a bit underweight. Does anyone have a shih-tzu of their own that can help me?

Those are not good-quality dog foods. Go to your local pet store and purchase either Canidae All Stages (they can eat this from when they are puppies up to adults so you never have to switch foods), Wellness, or Innova. Those are all great brands. Do not buy anything from the grocery store because they aren’t good quality.

    I have two shih tzus. One can eat anything and the other vomits or has diarrhea. I tried the expensive dog foods found at pet stores and still the little female would have digestion problems. About a year ago I ran out of dog food and had to buy a bag of Western Family Dog food….surprisingly this brand agrees with her digestive system and it's cheap!

    I love to answer this question to watch all the silly know-it-all thumbs-downers. I have had shih-tzus and Lhasas for the last 22 years. I have 2 shih-tzu's, a Schnoodle, and two mutts at the present. They have all lived long lives and thrived on Purina Dog Chow. Mine tend to overeat on Kibbles 'n Bits. Beneful is attractive to highbrows because it's expensive, but it's a sh!tty dog food.
