    I would go with the Fromm Heartland Gold Puppy Grain Free or Orijen puppy which is also grain free. For Canadians I would definitely say go with Orijen puppy since it's made in Canada and our exchange rate is horrible.

    I sometimes feed my dogs Merrick canned food, is this food ok?? They always get Fromm dry food and Canidae canned food mixed in. But for the change of flavor I give them Merrick canned food. Please someone let me know if this food is ok(Merrick)It is called Wingaling grain free with chicken wings that are fully cooked and soft, sweet potatoes,carrots, peas, red delicious apples. Thank You, Susan and Elmo

    I apologize if I'm being a pest. Burt comes home in a few weeks. Just want to start him out as best I can.
    Yes I would stick to the puppy food that is grain-free... and NO you are not being a pest... Lol

    Merrick is a great brand, but they did have a salmonella contamination of their dog treats in 2010 and 2011, nothing since.

    This looks like most of the complaints are only a few days old. Has anyone experienced this? I was planning on feeding TOTW to my puppy when he comes home in a few weeks but now I am really hesitant. I used it before and my puppy loved it and thrived from it.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Luke
    I've been feeding taste of the wild for the last 6 years and never had a problem until this past week. All 3 of my dogs got sick vomited at least once and could NOT control there bowels. Chicken and rice fixed there problems. I was doing internet searches trying to figure out if anyone else was having problems and stumbled upon lots of people in March describing the same symptoms. We are switching food, I don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    We fed our dog TOTW Pacific Stream for years and noticed more and more that he was getting cysts in his toes and losing patches of fur. This was kind of a slow progression and I'm not sure if they changed their formula or something but we had to stop. He did great on it for at least 2 years but recently in the past few months, we noticed these changes. We are moving to a raw food diet now and trying to get an ear infection under control.

    DO NOT FEED THIS FOOD TO ANY DOGS!!! Our dog is still recovering. He almost died. He was in the hospital for five days. $3,300 to keep him alive. The doctors couldn't figure out why he was so sick. He lived because he was on an IV for days. I know it's the food because we fed him chicken and rice for 8 days. He was doing much better, still on five different medications, but eating and holding down food. The vet said he could go back to regular food. We fed him Taste of The Wild and he started back with the original symptoms last night. I didn't realize he was getting worse again so I gave him more food this morning trying to figure out why he was acting oddly. So I googled the food today. A lot of dogs are having the same symptoms and dying. Throw the food away!!!

    So sorry to hear about your dog. I would avoid all Diamond dog food, not just TOTW Diamond ( TOTW , 4Health, Kirkland, Natural Balance ). Stick with brands that have very few or no recalls. You can find out if they have had recalls on dogfoodadvisor website.
