This is so sad!!! Diamonds food is really sending out a bad message!! At least the food I am feeding right now seems ok. (Performatrin Ultra). So shocking that almost all dog foods are either made by Purina or Diamond!
It all depends on the budget. There are two GREAT sites with great reviewsWe used to feed Diamond to our hounds. It was a great food that they didn't over-eat and it was great for working/hunting dogs because of the high protien content. But my wife and I currently feed Purina Large Breed formula to George and Max...any suggguestions on a better food for both dogs?
Re the bold ^^ Have you ever looked at the Merrick 5 Star Entrees? There's several different flavours, and I dont think it's that much more expensive than Chicken Soup (at least here it's comparable) And they have only ever had recalls on a few treats due to salmonella, but no other recalls that I could find.GeorgeDad, one of our mods here, Sara, rotates her dog foods around, she has a list of dog foods she has researched and approves of,
and rotates the brand around.
I like that idea, the more i think about it, the more i like it.
I'd do that too, if and when i can find another "dollar per pound" dog food that i do like.
but, it's something to consider, anyway, rotating around, like Sara does.
Depending on your dog, if introducing a new food for first time ever, it's always good idea to swap out the kibble sloooowly to avoid one lonnnngggg miserable night...mmmHmm.
Rapid swap outs of dog foods can upset some dogs, but, if done slowly, works out fine.
