    Any recommendations? I am feeding my dogs Beneful right now I used to buy Iams Mini Chunks, because it was easy for them to chew up. The only brand I really didn't like was royal canin, because it made their feces really soft and runny. impossible to pick up.

    Fromm, natures logic, natures variety, blue wilderness, blue basics... These are a few popular brands on here. Some cannot be bought at regular retailers, some are found in feed stores or pet boutiques, but all can be found on petflow.

    I read everything I could about Buffalo Blue, Fromms, and Wellness Core Grain Free. All are good. The Buffalo Blue caused Bella to have horrible gas. I choose to try her on Wellness Core Grain Free because they label their product as having no GMO products in their good. The transition was a little rough but she gobbles it down and her gas isn't nearly as frequent and is diminishing

    Does anyone have any info about 4Health brand(it is from Tractor Supply Co)? I didn't find it on the rated list. These are the first few ingredients: lamb, lamb meal, cracked pearl barley, ground white rice, peas, egg product, chicken fat. Does that sound like its good?

    There is a member that does use this (can't remember screen name) and it works well for their bully. personally, I prefer grain free foods due to allergies that tend to come along with them.

    It looks like a good food, I looked at it myself. It would go likely in the four star range, and looks like a decent food especially for the price. If I remember correctly, it was only about $30-$35.

    They may also carry grain free so you may want to look into that as well.

    I have a 5 month old puppy and did a lot of research when it comes to food and agree with the article

    1: Don't trust Vets I liken them to lawyers their eyes sparkle when you bring in your dog not because they care about you pups health; they only want to sell anything and everything they have.

    My big question: Do manufactures of dog food actually put in the ingredients that is on their label?.... I worry that they don't.

    It is not a very good food.... it is only rated at 2 1/2 or 3 stars. Lots of fillers (corn, meals and rice) and not much meat to it
