I have been feeding my dog AvoDerm lamb and rice food for a few years but I am noticing now that she never seems full and poops at least four times a day. I have a new puppy who I also have on AvoDerm. He is a small dog, only eats half a cup a day but he poops so much! I feel that this food doesn't have the nutritional value listed. Also, It seems the large bags just keep getting smaller but the price stays the same.
6/15/2015 As a follow up. After the above incident(s), I contacted Avoderm (aka Breeders Choice) to report the issue. They asked for a 2 cup sample which I promptly sent. I was unable to provide a batch number or best-by date for their evaluation since we keep our dog food supply in an airtight container and dispose of the bag. I've just heard back from them. Strangely enough, their first reply included text of "Sample looked and smelled normal. Microbiological and toxin analysis were found to be within specification. All batches are kept in our plant until the test results come back within specification and negative for any contaminants. We have had no other reported incidents that would lead us to believe there was a batch problem. All other aspects of the sample were found to be normal." The second email sent within minutes of the first eliminated the above information and replaced it with, "We found no contaminants."

The AvoDerm Natural product line includes seven canned dog foods.
Years ago, we did a taste test with our two toy poodles. We had them try six different canned dog foods that contained fish - AvoDerm was their absolute favorite. This year, my dogs starting having bouts of horrific diarrhea. The two most recent having them end up with just blood coming out. Each time we have taken them to the vet, accruing enormous costs. Most recently, one dog was in such dire straits. We took him to a GI specialist. After blood tests and an ultrasound, they determined the only thing wrong was his food poisoning him. We have since changed their diet - of course plain boiled chicken and rice for awhile, and then to a different brand entirely. Linus is now on ** 25 mg for, quite possibly, the rest of his life - which has to be compounded and costs a staggering $81/month. At this point, we are out over $2000, with an ongoing expense. We are heartbroken and broke. Luckily we still have our dogs.How can you put avacado in dog food when it is toxic to dogs. It causes kidney failure and I just lost my dog to this. I switched to AvoDerm and her health declined until she finally lost her fight. I tried switching foods but the damage was done.AvoDerm Natural® Chicken Meal & Brown Rice Formula dog food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages.Recently, we purchase two of the largest bags of AvoDerm from Petco, the same kind we had been using that our Dachshunds loved and thrived on. After the most recent purchase, both dogs suddenly went off their feed. My long hair Standard male's coat went dry and he started to sleep more. This greatly concerned us. He was only one year old. So off to the Vet - there were no problems after much testing. We set bowls of AvoDerm next to bowls of alternate food, which they devoured like starved animals. I'm not happy with wasting $120 while seeming to be risking both my pets' health. I had rated this dissatisfied, but you know what? I am angry about this.
