thanks!! Ya, ive been goin over various foods trying to find a really good one. The blue buffulo I feed now works good for Kallie, cause she is picky about texture and taste. She won't eat the venison and is ify on the beef, but loooves the lamb and salmon.

Yeah I have heard the same thing countless times from those who feed diamond ... if your going to feed diamond go with diamond naturals as it's much better than the other diamond feeds. As far as Iams goes I personally wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole ... There are much better feeds out their that would be comparable in price to Iams but much better for your dog. Just a few I like

EVO - Expensive Good stuff

Innova - Owned by Evo a little less costly still a great feed

Taste of the Wild - best value in price good quality feed

No actually I didn't .. But I do know companies make different grades of feed some better than others .. I personally have never fed taste of the wild .. But I have heard so many good things about it from people who have it seems to be a very popular feed at a reasonable price and I have looked at the ingredients and based on what I have seen it looks good to me. I feed Innova and Evo but if I ever had to go with a less costly feed it would be taste of the wild based on the great things I have heard about it from so many people.

taste of the wild screwed my dogs up just like the regular diamond...

I started with the salmon formula because the ingredients were hypoallergenic... but they wouldn't eat it

I switched them to the Wetlands formula about a week or two after Indi was inseminated. Indi is losing fur (could be because of the pregnancy), but Neela has fallen all to peices with her allergies. her ears are swollen shut with a serious infection that I can't fight without them being open... I got her a steriod shot which didn't open them up. She's having her respritory problems and her yeast is building back up all over her body.

For me and my household Diamond products are nothing but trouble. Jarvis is the only rock solid dog that doesn't get upset with the products. I never had any issues with Indi and allergies before this, but like I said it could be due to the pregnancy. Jarvis can't tolerate white fish, he pukes lol.

that is so far from the truth I had to call it out....in no way Diamond food is the same as TOTW but a better bag.. TOTW is made in the most high tech dog food factory's in the world.. not saying that makes it the best. Dogs are like anything else in this world some food work and some don't.

I feed TOTW and my dogs are thriving on it! I am feeding the High Prairie formula. It's about the best quality for the price for me. I would feed Orijen but I fear the extra $10 every two weeks would take it's toll on our budget.

I have a dog with corn alleriges and TOTW is grain free and his coat looks amazing and he doesn't get the stinky dog smell at all. He is a lot less oily too. All around, I recommend it.

To speak to the Diamond recall factor: in my experience, a company who has had a recall on it's food will be 1000% more careful going forward from the recall. It might just be the safest brand to buy because of the quality assurance that they will be putting into all their products. JMO.

I been feeding green bag Diamond for many months now from being out of work and the dogs are living off it, not looking their best but surviving, hell Irish Jerry used to feed Ole roy and dogs did good back then... find what works for your dog and stick with it is all I can say... my dogs eat Timber wolf for yrs when I could afford it.

Just feed what you can afford

With all Diamond went through in the pass, I think they should have their shit together now?

Got a coupon from petsmart and got to go buy 30 cans of blue buffulo moist food today!! wooo!! I agree def. dont feed something you can't afford, but do try to feed the best, since a dog should always be financially planned for before hand. I just wish dog food would go on a decent sale sometimes. lol
