We just took in a foster dog for the rescue network we volunteer with
(www.labadoption.org). This dog has food allergies and is currently
on Hill's Prescription Diet Z/D. Has anyone had experience with food
allergies in their lab - and has anyone ever used Nature's Recipe
Venison and Rice formula?
The prescription food is very expensive, and we'd like to find an
over-the-counter brand that will be just as good for him. He'll be
much easier to place in a "forever home" if we can eliminate the
excessive costs associated with his health problem. He's been
surrendered, adopted, and re-surrendered because of the allergy
problems and the cost associated with the prescription food (people
can be so frustrating).
On a side note, he's a 2 year old neutered male yellow lab. Seems to
be a really polite dog (gets along great with my dog) but is very
overweight right now - nothing a few trips to the dog park won't cure,
though...we'll be taking his picture tomorrow and his information
should be on the "available labs" page in a few days.
