We saw Archies Christmas video, very cute, thanks. As in a previous email I sent, my wife and I have been researching premium dry kibble. We pretty much have decided on Wellness. It is readily avaliable and Old Mother Hubbard sends $5.00 coupons when requested. The only thing that concerns me about Wellness is thier using Rye flour as 1 of the ingrediants. Could you give me your input about this. We were thinking that a 100% grain free food would be best for Brutus due to skin alergys. I dont know if Rye flour is good, bad or indifferant. We have Bru on Eukanuba Medium Puppy and want to switch him to Wellness but we’re not 100% yet. Any comments or feedback you can give us would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again, you are very much appreciated in all that you do to better the breed.
From our Family to Yours … We Wish You The Very Best During this Holiday Season. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

Wellness is one of the best foods out there. It was rated the top dog food by The Whole Dog Journal. It’s ultimately a matter of the individual dog’s response to the food, but I don’t have a problem with rye (especially since it’s so far down on the list of ingredients), it’s the wheat that’s usually a problem.
Wellness does make a new grain-free formula called Core:
Personally I don’t think grains are bad for a dog, you just don’t want wheat and you don’t want grains to be the first ingredient, you want the first ingredient to be a protein source. The Wellness Super 5 is a really terrific food, but I can’t give it to Archie because it is too rich for him and he gets soft stools. Maybe when he’s older.
Let me know what you decide.
I’m sorry to keep bothering you. I really do
appreciate your time and input. Wellness is the food
we plan on going with. In your opinion and considering
our Brutus having sensitive skin issues. We were
looking at the Wellness Fish & Sweet Potato and The
Lamb Super 5 Mix. Which of these 2 do you think would
be better for Bru keeping his skin issues in mind?
Also I’m using my yahoo to send emails because my
bellsouth addy is recieving incoming mail but having
problems with my outgoing.
Once again thank you so much for your opinions and
time. We tell all our bully lovin friends about ya.

My preference on those two would be the lamb Super 5.
The Fish and Sweet Potato is great too but the fish can
cause problems in a dog with food allergies.
The primary food allergens are beef, soy, chicken, and fish
in that order. Lamb seems to be the safest choice, and
Wellness only uses New Zealand lamb which is raise far
more naturally than lamb in the US.
