One of our dogs has a very sensitive stomach, on certain foods she'll barf it up. She's been on the Nutro Venison for Sensitive Stomachs (she likes it and tolerates it well) but there is A LOT of rice and grain in this food and I want to switch here to something better.

Eagle Pack and Wellness are available to me, out of these brands which dry would you recommend?

Thanks much!

Well first off i'd try going grain free, most of these replace grains with potato (Grains are likely the cause). If shes still having trouble it may be the meat, it may be the potato...

If its the meat then an alternative would be Solid Gold Barking at the moon which uses mostly fish and only some mammal meat, and instead of grains, potato is used. Fish is usually more tolerable.

If its the potato causing problems, natures variety food called "Instinct" sells grain free which uses tapioca instead of grains or potato, which has been shown to be the most hypoallergenic grain replacement for dogs, bar none. 90% of the protein is from the meat in this food as well.

Never had any experience with eagle pack, but wellness "CORE" is grain free which you could try.

My pit bull mix had a REALLY sensitive tummy when we first got her. As a puppy we fed her the Dog Whisperer organic chicken food. That helped quite a bit, as it was a major step up from the Purina One she had been fed at the Humane Society from which we adopted her.
When she became old enough for adult food, we switched her to Innova EVO red meat large bites. It is the best food I've ever come across. The immediate changes in her coat, skin, and physique have been nothing short of astounding.

I switched dry food looking for one that worked for mine with a sensitive stomach. Been using Natural Balance, limited ingredient formula. Fish and sweet potato or venison and sweet potato. No corn, grain and one source protein. Made a difference.

Natural Balance would be my suggestion as well.
