  2. What should I do when my Innova dog food is discontinued?

    Question

    Innova has discontinued the red meat large bites dry dog food. It’s the only thing my dog can eat due to food allergies. Do you have any still in stock anywhere so that I could get by until I can talk with my vet?

    Answer

    Hi Kathleen,

    The Innova Red Meat large bites is no longer available. Innova also makes a line called Evo that you could possibly try as a substitute for the discontinued food. They have a red meat large bite kibble that is just higher in protein. The Evo Red Meat Large Bites is one you could talk to your vet about. Call or visit your local Chuck and Don’s for availability and pricing.

  3. Why don’t you offer a frequent feeder program on all foods?

    Question

    We buy Taste of the Wild dog food. A number of other dog foods you carry are on a program where you by so many and you get one free. Why is this not available for the Taste of the Wild?

    Answer

    Our frequent buyer program is an optional program that each manufacturer has the option of joining. The free bags are actually a manufacturer coupon, so some manufacturers decide not to participate for a variety of reasons.

    Taste of the Wild offers an everyday great price and is still the most economical option for grain free. While we wish all of our brands would participate, we don’t control that. You do still earn a percentage back on your Taste of the Wild purchases on your quarterly rebate and sometimes they do have coupons in the Bark’n’Mews. If you are interested in switching to a brand that does participate, just stop into your local Chuck & Don’s and we would be happy to show yo

  8. Is it cruel to leave my puppy in a crate while I'm at work?

    Question

    I just got a new cockapoo puppy and I am crate training her and would like your opinion; is it cruel to leave her in a crate during the day while I am at work? I could try to run home during my lunch, but I had someone tell me she would get used to that and that I would always have to. I was a little hesitant getting a puppy but the rescues I looked into required that someone be home during the day, which I just can’t do.

    Answer

    Congratulations on the new puppy. No it isn’t a bad thing to leave your new puppy in a crate while you are at work. Just keep in mind he/she may have an accident every now and then. You should have a comfy bed or blanket in there for them along with a small toy to keep them busy. Your crate should have a divider so that your new puppy can have limited space, this helps to cut down the number of accidents. The theory behind that is your puppy will not go to the bathroom in his living area. Be sure you bring

  9. What should I feed my dog with IBS?

    Question

    My Cocker Spaniel, Prince, 13 years old has IBS. He will no longer eat the Hills Prescription Diet WD formula even when adding white rice and boiled chicken to it. What other dog food do you recommend?

    Answer

    IBS is typically something our dogs can recover from, depending on the cause. If it’s due to a food sensitivity, simply changing diets can help (although some dogs are sensitive to so many ingredients that regular changes are needed). Many dogs experience IBS due to stress and see it fade as stress reduces. IBD, on the other hand, is a medical condition that requires veterinary care and, while aided by diet, typically requires medication. If your dog had IBS and has since recovered, a special diet may not be needed. Moving forward can be a bit of a guessing game. In general, dogs who have had IBS can be more prone to future attacks so sticking with a high fiber, highly digestible food is typically best. Raw (frozen/thawed or dehydrated/rehyd

  10. What should a diet be for a dog with Cushings?

    Question

    What would you recommend for a diet with a dog on Cushings? Our dog's skin is so easily agraviated with hot spots, dry patches, bumps, and itching. We would like a commerically prepared dry food for convenience as we travel often. 

    Answer

    Take all grains and most of the carbohydrates out of your dog’s diet. Feed them the least processed diet that they can tolerate.

    Raw high protein diets are best. If raw is not possible feed them a grain free, potato free, high protein, high quality canned food. You may also want to try freeze dried raw which will be great for travel. Nature’s Variety Instinct, Primal and Stella & Chewy’s, among many others, all make frozen raw and freeze dried raw formulas. These will all be high in protein and low in carbs, although each will have a different level of protein.
