KS Brand is supposed to be a pretty good dog food for the price. It's superior to Store brands but not as good as the higher end stuff. All in all a nice middle of the road food :)

We are currently using the Purina Pro Plan puppy food. Abby literally inhales it and is finished in about 2 minutes. She must like the taste.
i used pro plan puppy for a while and really liked so did my dog she would finish be4 i could leave the kitchen, but when i seen how low it was rated on the dog food analysis site (1 star) i switched to the wellness (5 star) and she eats this just as fast as she ate the purina

Been feeding Trippy Natural choice chicken, rice and oatmeal. He was severely underweight when we got him and he has filled out nicely on this food. His stool is regular and never runny, but after seeing the reviews on this food I am switching him to the Evo Red Meats. When I brought the bag home today he wouldn't stop sniffing it. He doesn't even look twice at his regular bag of food.

Peanut is the same way over a bag of evo red meat :)

Make sure you phase the old stuff out slowly. Are you mixing at least 50/50 of the old and new? You don't want to upset his tummy.

very interesting...I tried the raw diet but also had Peanut on red meat and he was doing fine on it. brand new bag and I tried raw for the past almost 3 weeks Peanut has not had 1 regular poo..Peanut is on meds for that but today I just cold turkey (hes on meds anyway) changed him to Orijen I will definately have to update how he does on this change.

I was feeding my pups Iams until I joined this site I am in the process of switching them over to Canidae we are up to about a 70/30 ratio and no problems what so ever. Eventually I hope to switch over to Orijen until then what they get now is ALOT better than Iams:D
