I was just wondering if any of your Standard Poodles have trouble with grains?

Our breeder and a friend have separately told us that their dogs had problems with grains. Our dog has always been fed a mix of grain-free kibble and raw. Yesterday we took her to the vet and they kept giving her treats (I think they were little milk bones...shudder) and I was trying to loosen up on it thinking just a few wouldn't hurt.

Well she got sick as soon as we got home. She's never gotten car sick before, nor sick after puppy class where she consumed TONS of snacks that were grain-free.

No more grains for Bella!

My poodles are pretty much omnivores and will eat raw, homecooked, grains, potatoes etc. The only thing they don't really care for are vegetables. Having said that, I mainly feed them twice a day once raw once mix of homecooked and grain free kibble. I would feed them 100% raw, but my female refuses. lol

Moose will eat ANYTHING that's considered human food and many things we not dare put in our mouth.

He likes raw zucchini even! Tomatoes sure thing! He looks funny hen he makes them squirt in his mouth hehe.

The only thing he doesn't like which is no surprise is hot / peppered things.

Our vet gave him milk bones too, a bit of diarrhea was all. But he knows that food doesn't make them friends so it really didn't work, haha.

Could have been treats, stress, shots, anything really

Mandy eats grain free just because she needs the higher protien
Casey eats Pedigree chicken and rice because I have tried many foods and that is the only feed he doesn't need to take a pill on to not have the runs.
Trust me I have tried. High protien like Orijen makes him pee to much and can't hold it.
Not going to bother any more he has 2 good solid poops a day looks healthy and is a good weight so be it.
