What kind of dog food should I feed my Maltese?

Question by Shelly D: What kind of food should I feed my Maltese?
What kind of DRY food should I feed my Maltese. She is almost 1 yr old and I have her on Iams Smart Puppy but it seems like every 2 weeks she has diarehha. And I don’t mind spending money on food for her. I’m looking for something I could buy easily at a store and not online. Thanks for your help!

Iams is a TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE food.

Try Wellness or Canidae. You can pick both up at petstores.

  1. ~ Iams is no good. Avoid all Purina this includes Pro Plan. No grocery store food at all. Most pet store foods are no good either.

    Wellness is being sold in some Pet Stores you would have to check but the good foods are:

    Wellness and Wellness Core http://www.wellnesspetfood.com

    Innova, EVO and California Natural http://www.naturapet.com

    Orijen http://www.orijen.ca

    Eagle Pack Holistic http://www.eaglepack.com (Not regular Eagle Pack)

    Canidae is supposed to be good I have always heard Iams, Nutro & science diet are not that good at all, Merrick is supposed to be good I use Verus & I find it excellent, I get Verus from a speciality holistic pet food store, they also sell canidae, merrick, Wellness, they are all good, Not many people mention it but a decent priced good dog food is pro plan, it was not part of the recall and it was the first food I gave to my first greyhound and at that time before all the holistic foods were around the NGAP who LOVE these hounds researched a good mid-priced food and it was pro plan
