Coco loves LIFE4K9

LIFE4K9 is a different kind of pet food as the products are formulated for the best possible nutrition regardless of cost. All of the ingredients are carefully selected to promote good health and life-long vitality. LIFE4K9 uses only the FINEST AND HIGHEST QUALITY INGREDIENTS and insists on developing the cooking method (oven-baked) to ensure the food is kept fresh.
 
 
Lamb & Barley Recipe is made with real oven-baked lamb with fresh sweet potatoes and avocado oil for healthy skin and lustrous coats. LIFE4K9 - Lamb & Barley ensures that your dog receives optimum nutrition made only from the highest quality and premium-grade ingredients.

 
LIFE4K9 - Lamb & Barley is formulated to be complete and provide balanced nutrition for every day of your dog's life. This outstanding recipe contains no wheat, corn, white rice, soy, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives or colors.

 
Coco is a Mini Schnauzer Mix, and unfortunately she has inherited the usual Skin Allergies that is common in Schnauzer breeds since she was a puppy. She is allergic to food which has poultry content hence we need to pay more attention when buying dry kibbles and rewarding treats...
 
I got Coco in 2006 through a breeder, and I got to know that she fed on an old brand of dog food/kibbles named Back to Basic (Pork Version) since she was born, so I followed the same diet after taking her back since she was doing fine. Unfortunately Back to Basic was discontinued in 2007. 
 
I had been searching for a suitable diet to replace her current diet, and through trial and error, it has caused some schnauzer bumps and skin irritations on her. Luckily one of my dog forum’s friends recommended Solid Gold (lamb and brown rice – adult version) and she gave me some kibbles for Coco to try out. To my pleasant surprise, she loves it but most importantly is that there was no skin irritations occurring after consumption. Since then, she has been eating the Solid Gold (lamb and brown rice – adult version) since then till now... 
 
 
Recently, I was introduced to LIFE4K9 - Lamb & Barley... After reading through the ingredient contents, I decided to give a try on Coco. The main reason for me to change her diet is because her poo and pee is very smelly after consuming the kibbles from Solid Gold, which causes my parents to complain every now and then about the foul smell whenever she does her ‘business’ at home.

 
One thing to note down when changing your pet’s diet (maybe some pet owners might know about this) but I just feel like sharing with you guys...
Do not change the diet drastically as they might not get used to it, so when changing of brand for the kibbles, do mix the old ones and new kibbles together when feeding them for the first few days before changing it directly.
 

She has been taking the new diet for a week, and to my surprise, she loves her new diet and her fur coat condition improved quite a bit, but what I love most is that her poo and pee doesn’t smell so badly like last time...
 
I love seeing her enjoying her meals and doing fine in her daily life, and I think this is what most pet owners feel too... 
 
 
Time flies so fast and my Coco is going into her senior year (8 years old) in 2014. No matter what, she is still my lovable furkid ever!!

 
Showering affection to our pets is as important as taking care of their dietary. Do love them to the fullest as they are your best friend who will never talk back or angry with you when you throw tantrums on them when you are feeling vexed. So treasure your best and loyal friend in life...
