I adopted a 9 month old black lab mix from my brother. He originally got her from a shelter, but after 6 months realized he couldn’t give her the life she need and I took her. My brother was feeding her Beneful from the grocery store. I already have two shih tzus that I was feeding Acana Grasslands, so when I got her I switched her. That was about 2 months ago. After about 2 weeks I noticed that she started shedding like crazy, which wasn’t like her. I also noticed that she started to lose her shine. I thought maybe it was the stress of the change from going from my brother’s to my house. After another 2 weeks of it not getting better I decided to switch her over to the Acana Pacifica food because it’s made with fish and is higher in Omegas. It has now been a month on the Pacifica and 2 months since bringing her here and there is been no improvement. She was skinny when we got her and she has plumped out quite a bit and is very broad now. I’m starting to get worried and I’m a little confused that by switching her to the “better” healthier food that it would cause her fur to shed and loose shine. Shouldn’t it have the opposite effect? Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated!
