Kristina JAX, Florida 12/21/2012 8:39:37 AM Good article - thanks. I have adopted a 6yr old black&tan/Bluetick Coonhound mix. A tall girl of 95 lbs. I found Blue dog food and she prefers 'wilderness' can food with alot of protein. In addition I feed Blue dry food 'wilderness' and add extra veggies and also yogurt as suggested. Within a few months her coat became shiny and sheds less, she is alert, and always ready to get into trouble. I strongly believe that good food makes a huge difference in a dogs life. Thanks for caring.
