    I suggest checking out our Dog Food Ratings page - there is no magic food that is good for all dogs! But the Dog Food Ratings page really breaks down some of the foods and ingredients for you.

    If you're looking for a high quality food, you probably want to go with a 4, 5, or 6 star food. These typically include quality ingredients, many of them are also grain free to reduce allergies.

    Iams does not even compare to Blue--- iams is horrible food!

    Blue is not the best food but it is not the worst. I am questioning their ingredient sources tho now because I am starting to see a lot of advertising. Advertising costs big bucks, that are not going into the food.

    Please check out the dog food ratings. Also I think you will see links to our other nutrition articles, frequently asked dog food questions, how to read pet food labels, and more. You can access the articles by visiting our home page and look under the sections on the left.

    I am in the same boat. Memphis is 12 weeks today n I am going back n forth on what food to feed him... The breeder also feed Iams n my vet recommeded Iams or Science Diet BUT they both score horrible. I started feeding Memphis Blue Buffalo puppy also when I brought him hm two wks ago but my vet said that he just went to a siminar at Vanderbelt here n Nashville n they warned againt BB due to (it was a LONG medical name) it causing a calcium build up etc which is bad on their organs UGGGGGG What to do? So i got on here n found that FROMM was great n recommended but i cant seem to find it anywhere n I wanted to get him off BB as soon as possible so I went to a speciality dog food store n they recommeded Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance Sweet Potatoe N Fish because of Bulldog allergies etc. Its only a 4* dog food but i went ahead w it... I still may change him again but so far so good...

    They are both great. I don't feed NL simply because I cannot get it here. But during the food trial I did with it the results were excellent. The poo was like a stone brick!

    Either one is a great choice. I think you will be very happy no matter which you choose!

    Hi @jermx23..I just posted about a website i found..with the help of a family friend who is a vet. It's called DogFoodAdvisor and really helped me understand the different ingredients and what levels of protein,carbs etc are in them. I hope it helps, along with the great advice you will get here, narrow down your choices.

    Oh nooooo@luvinmybullie..whasssa matter? I am always confused so I know how you feel. Narrow down a few choices..put on your thinking cap and try dogfoodadvisor. Won't tell you which to pick..but in my case explained the differences and what means what. I had narrowed to Fromm and natures variety instinct..also compared to natural balance..that's what Jake is on now. Then come back here and read about different ones. I find I have to narrow to a few..think I have finally decided. Whew.now it's just when. Stresssssssss!

    Sometimes you can read all you like and do all kinds of research but eventually you just have to take the plunge and try a food. I do love Fromm and won't deny it, but I've also noticed that Fromm overall seems to be the favorite choice on here. After saying that you just have to get a bag and try it. Give it a few weeks to get in their system, and maybe over a period of months try a few different protein flavours. If you're not happy move on to another food.

    Nobody is ever going to be able to tell you the best food to get. It's so individual to your bully and their needs. Just go for a really good, high rated food and see what happens.

    Perfect@kazzy220..that's what I was trying to say. And the plunge is where I am now!! It is hard even when you decide which food to go with. Took me weeks to decide that!!

    well its just that I changed Chaos back to puppy Fromm and its like he is maintaining his weight and not gaining any. he should be gaining being hes only 4 months old. he gained fine until I switched him to fromm, which I love and he loves even more!!! So now its do I try him on a different puppy food? then which one? I went to the puppy food advisor and it had chicken soup, fromm, blue buffalo, and some others all as 4 star, yet fromm is better than all of those....get why i am so frustrated??? the vets office says purina e ?? never heard of it, then the pet store says earthborn or blue buffalo, a friend who is a vet tech says totw, and I really wanted him to be on the fromm because of all the wonderful stories on here and because he really loves it sooo much....maybe one day I will be able to get him situated! I feel like a bad momma
