I have a 16 week old Schnoodle that I am currently feeding Natural Way dog food, which is a rice and lamb mixture. I would prefer to stay away from Purina and Iams and would like to stick with something natural, however, she is always itching. The only problem I can think of is the puppy food I am feeding her. She doesn't have fleas or anything and she is bathed with puppy shampoo and conditioner but she just won't stop itching.
What is a good puppy food I can switch her to?
Is itching normal in puppies?

Thanks so much!

I suggest a vet visit! He would be able to rule anything else out medically, and then suggest a good dog food. My vet always suggests Science Diet!

Vets always suggest Science Diet because they sell it and get a kickback.

The food you're feeding isn't horrible, but it's not very good either and may be causing some problems. Just because it says "natural" doesn't mean it's good.

Natural Way Puppy Food

I suggest changing your dog to a limited ingredient dog food for adult dogs. I have never fed puppy food. Natural Balance has several good limited ingredient foods. I feed Sweet Potato and Venison. I believe Solid Gold has a LTD food, too. There are probably several others.

Thanks! She is actually at the vet as we speak getting her shots so I will call the vet and see what they say. I do agree that they will suggest Science Diet but I will see what else they suggest. Thanks again for the help!

Hi...your puppy looks adorable!....what breed is he?

I feed my guy Blue Buffalo....it's sold at Petsmart & Petco -- very good ingredients and has alot of Omega 3 oils which is good for the skin.

Thanks everyone! I am trying her on Blue Buffalo right now. I think she's allergic to something so hopefully this one will work! She's also got a urinary tract infection I think she had when I got her and now she may need an ultrasound if the infection doesn't clear up. :( Wish her luck! She's a schnoodle and so is her sister, the loves of my life!
