What do you mean by "fell apart" Neela? Which TOTW was it?

What did you switch them to after that?

I guess with tax it is close to that price here as well.
The 30 lb bag does last quite a while though and if your dog is still a pup it will last even longer.

There is no "good or bad." Clearly there are folks responding who feed Diamond and are happy with it. And there will always be those dogs who could eat sawdust and still look like a million bucks. LOL! Me, I don't get results I'm happy with until I start getting up to a 5-star or higher food. Right now, I've got my girls eating Instinct.

My personal opinion is that if your dog is doing well on a food, and it is affordable, then keep up with it! I fed Diamond for a long time, but one of my Boxers has EPI and he did awful on the Diamond. I've tried just about everything out there now-a-days, and I tried Orijen for a while, but my dogs ALL had very runny and smelly stools. A friend of mine recommended trying Black Gold Performance, and all my dogs are doing fantastic! I didn't like the ingredients that were in it, but even my EPI dog has normal stools, and everyone has shiny soft coats

All dogs are individuals, and some will do better on certain foods than others. I kinda think feeding is a crapshoot (JMHO)...

Diamond is the brand of dog food that Neela was on when she started showing signs of her allergies: hair loss, watery stool. inflamed ears with yeast infections, breathing fits, swollen red paws, she's also allergic to yeast so her yeast infections were kicking her butt too by causing a secondary infection when she scratched herself...she has permanent scars behind her ears from itching herself so bad. From diamond's regular food, i switched them to their lamb and rice formula which helped a tiny bit, which means the hair loss left, but everything else stayed the same. From Diamond Lamb and rice i took her in and had a blood panel allergy test which reveals a poultry allergy (almost all store brand dog foods have poultry inside no matter what the "formula" is labeled. The tests results came back with a list of manufacturers and formulas that she could have. I moved her on to Flint River Ranch lamb millet or something formula. It works ok for a while, but they must've switched up to the ingredients because shortly there after we were back to square one. I took her into a dermatologist who did a skin allergy test... the results of that put me on Science Diet D/D which worked great, but it's 90 bucks for a 35 pound bag and I had to put it in the deep freeze because once a bag of dog food is opened there's a mite inside of it which begins to breed once oxygen hits it.... which she is also allergic to. While at the dermatologist I got her on Immunotherapy. After the "OK" from the Dermatologist I put her on Nutro Naturals Lamb and Rice which she did great for about 7 months or so and they switched the ingredients in the bag throwing me all the way back to square one. So I thought I would try TOTW... I used Pacific Stream, and with poor results because of neela's allergies and my other dogs throwing up, i switched to the High Prarie with the same unsatisfaction. Now all the dogs are on a Raw/Barf diet which they are doing great... I just need to figure another meat protein for neela because the Tilapia is not cutting it.

Diamond products consistantly do visibly bad things to my dogs.

Poor Neela!! I can imagine your frustrations after all of that! With your raw/barf diet have you tried Venison or Tripe? My EPI Boxer does great on Venison, and I found pre-packaged raw diets available through Primal Pet Foods, I did learn that he does not tolerate Pheasant though

I'd like to find a good venision supply. I over the last few days I experimented with beef which doesn't agree with her... so she's back to the tilapia until she's back on track then I'll venture out and try a little venision.

BTW, Neela has her own whole medicine cabinet in the kitchen... I have to get the pictures up sometime. I literally have almost everything you need to battle whatever kind of allergy problems you may have.

1) 2 Different kinds of antihistamines... (banadryl, and hydroxazine)

2) yeast killing shampoo ... ketochlor,

3)1 lotion skin calming lotion,(can't remember what it's called)

4) syringes (.5 CC)

5) 3 different ear rinses (otifoam, otirinse, malacetic ultra)

6) 2 weeks supply of anitbiotics (Cephalexin & Ciprofloxacin & SMZ)

7) 3 different ear ointments to fight ear infections/fungi (otibiotic, Zymox, Clotrimaziol solution)

there's more to it also, for the other dogs... but that's basically their supplements for all the dogs food.
