I'm ready to start transitioning P to earthborne (we had a new bag of fromm to work our way through). However, she has been sensitive to chicken in the past. I've read from the comments some people are feeing meadow meadow feast for the lower protein vs. great plains. Ideally, I'd like to avoid the chicken, but I don't really know enough about the protein to make an informed decision,
P is active, but spends most of her day asleep in the crate...she plays ball, fetch, chase, etc. & is more active than we anticipated, but I'm not sure.
What are the negative effects of feeding too high of a protein?
has anyone tried the coastal catch? It's 32%.
I'm ready to make the switch. A pet store right across the street from us recently started carrying earthborne...so much more convenient!

Meadow feast has chicken though, right? That seems to be the hang up. If we could do chicken, I would pick the MF & not worry. Good point about Treats... I hadn't thought about that!

We are transitioning HRH to Great Plains Feast... she is snoring at my feet as I type.
My boys love their Great Plains Feast!!! I don't even have to put anything on it and they will head right to the bowls and gobble it down and lick the bowls shiny clean.

actually i think either is good but if your worried about protein go with the meadow feast and you can always do something else later. let us know how its going
I've found out that protein is good for them when there puppies for growing I feed bongo Orijen puppy that 40% protein. I believe it's the calcium and phosphorus levels that you should be concerned with.

Wilson has about the same activity level. He's crated and sleeps for 10 hours while I'm at work and then plays normally during the evenings and weekeneds. I choose the Meadow Feast becuase the Great Plains protein is too high for him. I now Becky (@JAKEISGREAT) has Jake on Great Plains but he's very active. I also have my non-bully Jack on Great Plains but he needs a higher protein food. In my opinion, I'd start Penny on Meadow Feast first and see how she's doing. Wilson's also allergic to Chicken and Meadow Feast as you see has no chicken in it.
