Our expert says:
The best food for your dog, is the food that he does well on. German Shepherd dogs particularly, are quite sensitive to various diets and what is good for one German Shepherd is not necessarily good for another. They are quite prone to dietary intolerance, which is not a reflection upon the quality of the diet, but rather an inherent factor within each dog. Therefore, if your original diet resulted in a dog which was looking well, and performing well then that is the better diet for your particular dog. Conversely, if the second diet resulted in a better looking dog, then that would have been the better choice for your particular dog. Therefore, go back to the original diet. Don't be too worried about the omega three fatty acids, as most diets will have adequate levels for the average dog. If you are still worried about omega three levels, you could always add it in in tablet form.
