This Food Saved Our new Dog
favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite| GermanLove

When we got Ellie, a 3 month old German shepherd, we thought she was in good health- turns out we were terribly wrong. The day after we got her, we noticed that her front legs were bowing out and she couldn’t walk more than 100 feet before collapsing in exhaustion. We took her to the vet and were told she either had a bone disease (which would cost $2000 to find out) or she was malnourished and needed to be put on a healthier diet. We put her on Natural Choice and within a week Ellie’s front legs were noticeably straighter and she was running and playing with our older German shepherd. Thank you Natural Choice!

This food is great food for dogs with a sensative stomach. My husky gets sick if she eats almost anything other than this food.
