Hi, I am new to this site but very excited to chat with all of you and hopefully figure out what is going on with my dogs. I have australian shepherds and they were both diagnosed with pancreatitis when they were very young (not even one years old). They were not given table scraps or a high diet food. They both had severe diarrhea when they were puppies which lead to several rounds of antibiotics before discovering their pancrease problems. They were on Hills ID for over a year and were doing really well so the vet said I could try taking them off of it. We first fed our dogs Acana dog food which was 11% fat and they were doing really well but surprisingly gaining a lot of weight (I guess Acana is very rich). Our vet decided to switch them again and put them on a low fat dog food which worked really well. My bigger dog lost 10 lbs. and my smaller dog lost 6. The problem we are facing now is that one, they are pooping 4-5 times a day, two, they can’t seem to gain any weight (and they are both eating a full cup more a day), and three, they are having accidents in the middle of the night (which has never happened before). Here’s the other mystery, they do not have stomach pain, they have plenty of energy, they eat all their food right away, and they seem happy. We decided it was time to try the Hills ID again but I am bewildered by their symptoms. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a 10 year old husky/chow mix dog, allergic to chicken who needs a low-fat or lower fat % dog food. He carries a little extra weight (even with nice long walks) so I would like something that won’t add to his weight…or maybe help in reducing it. Since he’s on the older side, something that would benefit his joints would be awesome too. Please help! I am looking online and its really confusing!
