My shiba inu is overweight right now. Apart from exercise, is there any good dog food that is filled with nutrition and is delicious that my dog should eat?
I forgot to add that he’s 2 years old

eagle pack is very good but not sold everywhere it can be harder to find
Purina has a good dog food for overweight dogs. I think that Purnia has very good dog food and have fed it to my dog for several years.
Nutro Weight Management is pretty good.
Innova EVO is high protien, low carbs, no grains, no fillers. They dog will eat less (because of the higher protien). Or you could go with a RAW or BARF diet. Google it and you’ll see. I’ve had my dogs on a raw diet before (until my Saint got too big and the bill got too expensive-three big dogs was almost $500 to feed for one month!) It’ll be alot cheaper for you, but do the research because it needs to be balanced and supplements need to be added.
This is a good brandhttp://www.petco.com/product/102292/AvoDerm-Natural-Brown-Rice-Oatmeal-and-Chicken-Meal-Formula-Lite-Adult-Dog-Food.aspx?CoreCat=DogFlink_DryFood
I feed raw meat and bones on the prey model. It’s a dog’s natural diet. I don’t trust any commercial dog food.
See the links and decide what you think.
When looking for a good dog food look for a food that doesn’t have corn, wheat or soy. No meat by-products and no use of animal fat or digest.
When you do feed a dog that has all of the above, you have to feed more and the dog poops more.
I think Wellness is great for weight management. There’s Innova Evo Reduced fat, California Natural low fat, and plenty more.
Royal Canine, I think you can only get it from the vet or high end pet stores.
Canidae (seniors and overweight formula) is VERY good,
I think a lot of the high quality dog foods have too much protein in them. So I actually thinking using a middle of the range food like Eukanuba or Nutro Natural Choice, is best for most people, but dogs with more energy or other special needs do best with a higher quality food than that. A lot of people don’t know this, you might but I’ll say it any way. When you feed an overweight dog, don’t feed according to how much your dog weighs now, feed according to how much your dog should weigh.
I like Nature’s Recipe. I have tried several different brands of dog food for my English Bulldog, and Akita, and this brand seems the best for them. The English bulldog had skin problems, and tear stains, and the Akita had digestive problems, but now they are fine. Ive been buying them the lamb and rice, although there are several different types you can buy according to the age and needs of your dog. Hope this helps!
Try beniful,beniful is proven to extend the life of your pet by two human years.
I used to feed my dog all the Petsmart crap until I was directed towards Orijen and Taste of the Wild. He does great on it and the switch went smoothly. I don’t mind paying some extra bucks for better food.

There are so many dog and cat foods on the market right now and most people are totally oblivious to healthy and unhealthy dog and cat food. I used to be, but after looking into dog and cat food and researching it I have completely changed my ways when it comes to dog and cat food. All of the food in Wal Mart and most foods from other stores such as Petsmart are unhealthy garbage. Why? Because they either carry:
“Artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives,” all of these can cause cancer and several other health problems. Cancer is the #1 killer of cats and dogs.
“By-products,” they are the junk in meat that are not approved for humans to eat. Road kill, cancerous, dead, and dying animals are allowed as well.
“Fillers,” are corn, wheat, and soy products that virtually don’t have any nutrition in them. They pass right through. Which also makes your dog have to eat more food to feel full.
Surely good dog and cat foods such as Science diet, Eukanuba, Iams, Pedigree, and Purina don’t have any of those and are great to feed my dogs and cats right? Wrong. These foods have most if not all of these terrible things.
Here are the first ten ingredients of three of the so called best foods, which make up most of what your dogs and cats eat and are the most important. The capitol words are the main things that are wrong in the ingredient lists.
Purina adult complete nutrition- WHOLE GRAIN CORN, POULTY BY-PRODUCT MEAL, ANIMAL FAT preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of Vitamin E), CORN GLUTEN MEAL, MEAT AND BONE MEAL, brewers rice, soybean meal, barley, whole grain wheat, animal digest… (There is nothing good in that list at all)
Eukanuba-Chicken, CHICKEN BY-PRODUCTS MEAL, CORN MEAL, GROUND WHOLE GRAIN SORGUM, Ground Whole Grain Barley, Fish Meal (source of fish oil), Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Brewers Rice, Natural Chicken Flavor, Dried Beet Pulp (sugar removed)… (Most of what you see are either fillers or by-products)
Science Diet- GROUND WHOLE GRAIN CORN, CHICKEN BY-PRODUCT MEAL, Soybean Meal, ANIMAL FAT (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Soybean Oil, Chicken Liver Flavor, Flaxseed, Iodized Salt, vitamins (L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of vitamin C), Vitamin E Supplement, … (first ingredient is a filler followed by by-products and more fillers)
Here is a list of both cat and dog well known foods and treats to stay away from-Fancy Feast, Alpo, Friskies,Mighty Dog, Dog Chow, Cat Chow, Puppy Chow, Kitten Chow, Beneful, Purina One, Purina ProPlan, DeliCat, HiPro, Kit’n’Kaboodle, Tender Vittles, Purina Veterinary Diets, MeowMix, Gravy Train, Kibbles ’n Bits, Wagwells, 9Lives, Cycle, Skippy, Nature’s Recipe, Milk Bone, Pup-Peroni, Snausages, Pounce, Pedigree, Waltham’s, Cesar, Sheba, Temptations, Goodlife Recipe, Sensible Choice, Excel, Hills Prescription Diets, Nature’s Best, Diamond, Ol’Roy, Iams, Nutro, Royal Canin.
Here are some foods that I recommend- Innova, California Natural, Evo, Blue Buffalo, Taste of the wild, Wellness, Merrick Before grains, Chicken soup for the cat lovers soul, Health Wise, Karma, Orijen. Plus there are many more great foods not listed. You have to look at the ingredients list of any food that you feed your dog. If it have any of the things listed as bad then immediately put it down.
To show what a good healthy dog food looks like, here is the ingredient list of Taste of the Wild High Prairie- Bison, venison, lamb meal, chicken meal, egg product, sweet potatoes, peas, potatoes, canola oil, roasted bison, roasted venison, natural flavor, tomato pomace, ocean fish meal, choline chloride, dried chicory root, tomatoes, blueberries, raspberries, yucca schidigera extract, Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Saccharomyces cerevesiae fermentation solubles, dried Aspergillus oryzae fermentation extract, vitamin E supplement, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, calcium pantothenate, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, riboflavin (vitamin B2), vitamin D supplement, folic acid.
