We used to use nutro but got tired of it being recalled every year since 08? And worrying if our dogs were gonna get sick. We switched to blue and all is good.

Here is the big question. Does anyone know were to get this food cheaper. We pay 53 ish for 30 lbs. I just got a 5 dollar off coupon from the manufacter.

Dogs will eat shit and road kill and be perfectly healthy. Stop worrying about what you're feeding them

From now on when you post this is who I will picture.



I had to when he took Willie to the vet and they asked him what he fed him and he looked confused like, "I'm supposed to feed him?"

Petsmart seems to have the best prices. Just sign up for the membership (free) and you can sometimes get food cheaper.

It's $47.27 at Petco right now, you have to add something cheap to get the total over $49 for free shipping.

Try to find a place that runs a buy 10, get one free deal. I pay around $53 for the 30lb bag but get a free bag for every $10 that I buy, works out to about $48/bag in the long run. I buy it from a local place, they're a few bucks more per bag but I feel good supporting them and long term it ends up equaling roughly the same as I could get it from a place like PetSmart, which I despise.

Look up what you are currently using or thinking about using here to see what's really in it..

http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-food-reviews/dry/all/

or this site

http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog_food_reviews/

I learned a whole lot from reading this.

I ended up with Fromm. It's a fair price for a top quality food.

Purina works fine for my dog, year and a half old lab/husky mix. She weighs about 70 lbs and is pretty healthy

Nice to see blue buffalo and TOTW being mentioned in this thread. They were two foods I was considering. I was also looking at Acana and the grain free Canidae. It looks like I'll have to do some price investigation and see which foods I can get the best deal on since I'm going to be feeding two big dogs.

Thanks for all your input.

Kirkland(costco) for the last several years. Iam and Eukanuba many years ago. They've transistioned from the Kirkland adult dog food, to the mature dog food now.

*shrug*

They are healthy, seems to be fine with their systems (some of the lamb and rice from other brands have caused shedding, at least several years ago. Usually poo once a day (funny how much your life revolves around bathroom functions with 3 young kids and 3 dogs...).

My beagles are 14yrs, 14yrs, and 10 yrs old, in good health and activity level, no weight issues, etc. So it works for us.

Orijen Poultry and Fish or Six Fish, it's an excellent grain free food but it is pricey.

I've got a 120 lb Newfoundland and they are known to have hip/joint problems in their older years. A grain free diet is a great way to fight joint swelling.

Use to feed our dog Iams but it started giving him the runs. I think its a purina or pedigree food he is on now that the vet recommended for him. He has an endless food dish and just eats what he wants too. The bad thing is sometimes he will get hungry late at night and then want out.
