Looks like there may be something to the Nutro problems from a few months back.

Yeah, it stinks. I fed Nutro for many years with great results. Then their formulas started changing and then the sale to M & M Mars, which seems to care about pets' health about as much as Larry Flynt cares about community standards.

I gradually switched my dog to California Natural which did not go well. To say it upset his stomach the entire time is an understatement (LOTS of gas (the kind that just about singed my eyebrows) and very loose stools.) Natura, the company that makes California Natural and Innova, tried to give me the song and dance about "Well, our food is richer than many dogs are accustomed..." and yada, yada. I was told that I needed to allow as much as a couple of weeks. (It had already been nearly a month.) I switched to Avoderm and the problems stopped immediately. I'm still in the early stages on Avoderm so I'm not sold on it yet but so far so good.
