My dogs have had reactions to dog foods in the past. I switched to Diamond Naturals about 2 years ago, problems were resolved. I opened a new bag last week. In a few days both of my dogs have started having skin and eye reactions just like with previous foods. Now that I switched to Taste of the Wild since yesterday, and they seem to be improving. There was definitely an ingredient switch or some kind of error. I liked this dog food, it was a good price for grain-free/low-grain diets. I don't trust to feed this again.

I have two 3 1/2 month old chihuahuas. They’ve been on Acana Small Breed Puppy for 3 weeks with no problem. But few days ago, they started to have mushy stool sometimes blood tinged. Vet said it could be allergy so they were given antibiotic, steroid and food was shifted to Hill’s intestinal diet. Stools improved, more formed but not yet as firm as before. Im wondering if i could switch back to Acana puppy small breed after the special diet or should i change to another dog food? Would you recommend Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy?

Taste of the Wild Pet Food
Taste of the Wild® Brand Dog and Cat food offers your pet a diet dictated by his genes. It provides your pet with the kind of natural, balanced diet that he could find "in the wild."

We certainly expect that the stool quality is equivalent if not improved with a switch to the Taste of the Wild, and while this may be true in most cases, there will be some dogs who simply do not tolerate this recipe. This may be because of an intolerance to a particular ingredient or even an allergy to a particular ingredient. Symptoms of a dietary intolerance include larger stools than normal, foul-smelling stools, diarrhea, vomiting the food back up and even skin problems. If your dog suffers from an apparent intolerance after a gradual transition, try a different recipe with different protein sources.When making a diet change, it is best to do so very gradually. This means that the first time you feed the new food, it should make up only 25% of the ration that is being fed that day. So, if your dog eats 1 cup of food two times daily, feed 1/4 cup of the Taste of the Wild mixed with 3/4 cup of the previous diet. Do this for 2–3 days. If the stools are firm, increase the Taste of the Wild to half of the daily ration for another 2–3 days. If the stools are still firm at this point, increase the Taste of the Wild to 3/4 of the daily ration for another 2–3 days. Finally, feed only the Taste of the Wild.Find Taste of the Wild pet food at all Tomlinson’s stores. We offer a variety of the most popular formulas, including both dry and canned diets for dogs and cats.My West Highland Terrier was recently fed Taste of the Wild dog food. He got very sick with diarrhea and had strong urine, which I suspect was kidney distress. This lasted 2 weeks and then he lost half his hair due to chewing and hot spots. He also stopped eating for 4 days. He is just now getting better and is back eating his raw diet. I'm giving him Wild Alaskan fish oil and bathing him in Neem oil shampoo. He has developed Demodex mange because Taste of the Wild compromised his immune system and almost killed him. His skin is turning black in spots so I'm going to start giving him oregano oil capsules. Taste of the Wild should have issued a recall by now. What's wrong with these people! My Westie was fed the venison/bison blend. I tried to get my local pet store to take it off their shelves but they were not interested until a recall is issued. I will call the company directly tomorrow.Taste of the Wild understands that your pets have gone through years of domestication to turn from fierce predator into your loving and friendly best friend.
