A little over three weeks ago, I told you all about AvoDerm® Revolving Menu and how I was looking forward to starting Cooper on the new diet. Coop’s been going through a rough time with seasonal allergies. His back and tail lost quite a bit of fur, and he just lost his usual handsome luster. His skin was both oily and dry, if that makes sense. Some patches were oily and “dog-smelly,” while others were flaky. A mess, I tell you!
About a day or so after I wrote that first post, Cooper’s supply of AvoDerm Revolving Menu showed up on our front door. We got the Duck Recipe and the Lamb & Sweet Potato Recipe, both of which are grain-free. Transitioning Cooper over to AvoDerm wasn’t difficult, he’s not terribly finicky. Plus it’s designed to be an easy switch. The “revolving” in Revolving Menu means that you can easily change from one flavor to another without upsetting your dog’s belly, even if he does happen to be sensitive to dietary changes.
I knew Coop wouldn’t have an issue with either of the AvoDerm flavors- he eats just about anything- but I didn’t expect the overwhelming response that he had to it. Coop usually picks at his breakfast, eating a few bites, then leaving the rest of it for later in the day. He’s more of a dinner eater, like me. With the AvoDerm, though, he actually eats most of it right away. We alternated between the Duck Recipe and the Lamb & Sweet Potato Recipe without any issues at all, and he seemed to prefer them both equally.
Why AvoDerm Revolving Menu?
If you need a quick refresher from the last post, there are a few reasons I really wanted to be part of this AvoDerm Revolving Menu trial. What makes this food so special? Take a look at my favorite features:
- It’s Grain-Free
- Varies proteins throughout the menu to help reduce the risk of developing ingredient sensitivities
- Limited-ingredient list, which is not only better for your dog overall, but further reduces the risks of developing sensitivity issues
- Contains the parts of Avocados that are safe for dogs, sourced from California farms. Avocados are packed with nutrients, fatty acids and antioxidants to help your dog better absorb other nutrients. They also help with the health of your dog’s skin and coat.
After just about a month on AvoDerm, I’ve noticed an improvement in Cooper’s fur already. When I pet him, he doesn’t feel so “off.” He’s not greasy as greasy in the oily spots or as dry in the dry spots. I don’t expect miracles over night, especially since Coop really went through the ringer with this allergy season, but to notice such an improvement so quickly really does tell me that AvoDerm is working exactly as I hoped it would. I’m not done with this trial yet, but I can already tell you with confidence that I will be buying more of this food once I run out.
Where Can You Get It?
Speaking of buying more, let’s talk about where you can find it! AvoDerm Revolving Menu is still relatively new-ish, so you may not find it in all your local stores quite yet. BUT, many pet stores are happy to do special orders for you. If enough people ask (or you ask enough times!), your pet store may just start carrying it. Use the Store Locator to find out if your store already carries it. Stores like PetSmart.com also carry it for ordering online. Make sure you grab a $5 off coupon from the AvoDerm Revolving Menu website before you head out to buy it. Check out AvoDerm on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with news.
