To preface, I have a 10 year old Italian Greyhound. I would say he’s in great shape only because he had a couple of teeth pulled last year. Otherwise he’s perfect.

Right now he’s on Nature Variety’s Instinct Be Natural Salmon formula. We love this formula and he does too, however in this last bag we noticed that the pieces were a lot a bigger and that grows a little concern because he already had two teeth pulled and his breed is known for awful teeth so we know in the next couple of years he could be down to say six teeth (probably an exaggeration but you know what I mean).

So in my head I’m considering switching his food. I’m not against kibble and he doesn’t hate it but we do have to add things to get him to eat it because he won’t eat kibble by itself (he gets pumpkin currently for digestion but he’s had wet food before).

He is allergic to chicken so it can making finding formulas really hard. I work at a pet store and when we’re not busy, I walk around and read labels for wet/refrigeratored/frozen food and find that a lot of them still contain chicken.

I’ve had a lot of people tell me that he needs kibble to clean his teeth and such but I’m worried that as he ages its going to make it harder for him. He does thoroughly enjoy his dental chews so he does get that as far as his teeth although I’m sure that doesn’t make up for kibble

So I’m looking for suggestions mainly for a refrigeratored, freeze dried/dehydrated or frozen food but I’m also not against an only wet food diet but I’d like to save that as a last resort style thing.
