It's unfortunate that vets are pcienceid to push Science Diet. For people whose jobs are to keep pets healthy, you'd think they would promote only the best foods!! Shame to say, they obviously don't. My vet recommended SD for me too, and it gave Desmond very loose stools and he showed a significant improvement when I switched to Blue. I LOVE Blue. It's an excellent dry food, and I fed it to Desmond until I found out that a small pet supplies store sells Orijen, so we switched to that. But Blue is absolutely my next best to Orijen. Love that stuff- Desmond did too!
This is what I think of whenever I hear "Science Diet." When I had my German Shepherds, I thought it was supposed to be a good food. My one dog ate the whole bowl, very quickly, and instantly turned around and projectile vomited the entire bowl onto my new shoes! I had just finished getting ready to go out. It was so awful, it made me laugh. After that, no more Science Diet!
