So we gradually weened out dog off of the old food we were feeding her (always a good idea to gradually switch dog food) and then by the time she was full time on the new food, we started noticing a change. She was hardly chewing on herself at all. It was starting to work! We did however run into a little problem. Now! Grain Free dog food comes from Canada and something happened with distribution so we couldn't get it in any of our neighborhood stores. So we researched again and found that we can buy it on the internet in 25lbs. bags and save money as well.(see the side category)
We then decided after some more research that we might also try adding some raw dog food into her diet as well. After all, dogs in the wild don't eat kibble style dry dog food.
