I used Diamond food for many years, I stopped when they had all the recalls and I actually got a couple bad bags, so now I'm paranoid and won't change back BUT I did use it with great results for years... I do have to say I absolutely HATE the high energy bag though, I didn't like the results at all, I used the chicken..

I don't care for any food Diamond and once I found out TOTW was made by them I switched. However, TOTW gets great ratings and alot of people like it.....just not my top choice for foods ;) If anything though I would feed the taste of the wild and skip the actual diamond food all together JMO :)

If you wanna use it I would go with the Diamond naturals. I didnt have good luck with it but every dog is different. Good luck!

we use diamond... weve been feeding it for about 4 years now and never had a problem.. honestly it depends on how many dogs you are feeding. if you're just feeding one id go with blue buffalo.. but i really cant afford to feed 11 dogs blue buffalo so we feed diamond :D

Diamond is a decent food if your on a temporarily tight budget or feeding several dogs, though i personally wouldn't recommend it. The ingredients are extremely cheap and they tend to have an above average recall amount than other foods, even compared to dog foods similar priced. Their factory is also pretty disgusting (SC factory) and that can also contribute to questionable quality.

Diamond Naturals is a bit better though saying its a much better food is like saying Iams Naturals is a much better food than Iams. While ingredients may be an improvement overall quality (IMO) is still questionable and subpar.

Higher quality dog foods are going to be pricer (to some degree) in comparison though the advantage of feeding a higher quality is you are feeding quite a bit less therefore each bag lasts longer.

TOTW is a good alternative though keep in mind still manufactured and owned by Diamond Foods.

The recall a few years back turned people off from there food. Many dogs got sick and some died. They may have fixed the problem but as KM pointed out there factory is not up to the greatest of standards. Just saying ;)
