Chihuahuas And Dry Dog Food

I have discovered that Bella cannot tolerate eating beef dry dog food. I don't know why, but she just cannot handle it. I didn't discover this right away, but my daughter had noticed several times where she didn't keep her food down. I am using Natures Variety, Prairie, and it has been a very good food. I have noticed my dog's coats very shiny and they are very healthy and happy. I also like getting the California Natural, lamb and rice, small bites and mix it in. I have heard that dogs don't need a variety, but I think that they do.  They seem to like it really well. There are quite a few really good dry dog foods out there, but I think that you have to find which one is best through trial and error. Believe me, my dogs are very picky eaters. Do you find that your chihauhuas can handle beef dry dog food?

Actually, I've read that it is a myth that dogs should eat dry food only (compare it to us eating a diet of cereal, no milk or liquid in it) and in fact my holistic vet actually advocates a wet food diet! Lilibell too is a very picky eaeter and gets bored eating one flavor all the time, so I keep two flavors of dehyrated raw food on hand and switch it up every couple of days.
