We rescued our dog Frodo a little over 2 years ago. He’s a Shih Tzu and has the most crooked little teeth! I joke that he needs doggy braces. When we first brought him home, he gagged and burped a lot. We started him on Purina Little Bites because he seemed to have trouble chewing other foods we tried.
Last year, Gabe entered our family. He’s a Pug and, as a puppy, he seemed to have a weak stomach. When we switched him from puppy food to regular dog food, it took several tries to find something that wouldn’t give him diarrhea. Finally, we settled on a lamb & rice formula that seemed to work for him.
I never thought I’d have two dogs eating two different types of food; but it’s how things worked out. Gabe is a piggy and would be more than happy to eat Frodo’s food; Frodo isn’t very aggressive, but he looks longingly ate Gabe’s food when I’m scooping it up, though he’d never actually take any.
Introducing Purina ONE
When I got the opportunity to participate in the 28-Day Challenge with Purina ONE and Smiley, I thought Frodo might enjoy it – after all, it’s still a Purina brand food, which he is used to (so hopefully he would be able to chew it), and it has a lamb & rice flavor (which smells so good to him, apparently).
We got the package in the mail and I posted this on Instragram:
Of course, not knowing how he would handle the switch in food, we gradually introduced the Purina ONE, mixing it with his current diet of Little Bites. He liked it and has continued to like it as we’ve increased to Purina ONE alone.
Now, I may work on attempting to switch Gabe to Purina ONE as well, because it would certainly be nice to be feeding them the same food! No more longing looks at the other’s dog bowl.
