Taking care of Rocky

By July 11, 2011Featured Posts

You all have read before about our dog Rocky. He is 13 years old, and obliviously is a big part of the family. Keeping him happy and healthy is very important.

During a recent conversation at a baseball game, I discovered that the food we were feeding him was making him scratch. I figured it was the hot weather and dry skin. I recently had changed his food, thinking he might like it, little did I know that it was going to cause him to scratch like crazy. I switched back and the scratching is almost under control.

I have a little favor to ask of you…can you please take this short survey for me?

Walmart is looking for some feedback on what you look for when you shop for dog food.

Thank you so much! My readers ROCK!!

  • Just took the quiz! My dog’s food is REALLY important to me. I don’t like any grains, and good vitamins and nutrients. My dogs are really healthy and while I don’t think the food is all of it, I think it helps! Rocky looks really sweet 😀

  • Survey done! I’m glad to hear Rocky’s scratching is getting better. We had a similar situation when we first had Rex (turning 7 this year) with him licking his paws until they bled, they kept putting him on med and it was the food. We have been through tons. I love the Royal Canin Small Breed, but it is very costly for not much, he has done well with some other foods too. The Purina One Beyond seems to be a good compromise for Rex with quality ingredients, but it still doesnt fix everything. Certain foods also stain his white face. Being Mom to a dog can be difficult sometimes!
