I feed 10 of my dogs Kirkland Signature dry, with homecooked (Rice, veggies, chicken or ground turkey) a couple times a week.

And then Lucy (the chihuahua) gets Innova, Chicken Soup, and a lot of homecooked and table scraps because she is extremely picky and changes her likes often...and will completely starve herself..so we rotate foods often for her.

And I have to say ICK to the person who feeds her dogs alpo and beneful. One of the best things you can do for your dogs is to give them HEALTHY, PREMIUM food. it is NOT overrated. It is SOO much better for them. We used to feed beneful, and other purina foods a few years ago and I am SOO happy we switched. The dogs coats are softer, silkier, shinier...They don't shed at all, their weight is better maintained, their stools are better, they go to the bathroom less, etc,etc.

So please, for your dogs sake, switch to a higher quality food.

I am feeding Bruno Eukanuba puppy formula for big breeds (http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog_f...ct=113&cat=all).

I am currently researching another brand for his adult food. I like the look of Chicken Soup. My first choice would be Orijen… but seeing as we don’t carry this brand in my whole town I think Chicken soup is the next best thing (http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog_f...ct=912&cat=all) The reviews on it are pretty good (I have read other reviews as well). I am still undecided though.

EDIT: nevermind... i found a place that sells Orijen (http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog_f...duct=915&cat=8) i will most likely feed him this...Although it says not good for puppies (hes 10 months old). Ill have to decide which one.

Despite the recalls, I'm still feeding Diamond. Because look at how many brands have been recalled (like Nutro, a fairly popular brand). I can get Diamond for a decent price, locally (where my choices are Wal Mart of Fleet & Farm to buy from), & the ingredients aren't bad. And almost every brand is changing formulas as of lately....Canidae has a few times to my knowledge changed formula (I know this as I know someone who was feeding it, new bag, dog started vomiting - formula change).

PF companies only put up what they want you to know ...:_).. SG has chenged many times over the last two yrs ... like just the type and quality of fish ...

As a whole most companies are changing one or two things in there foods now per yr ...



Orijen would be my choice they have two puppy formulas reg and large breed

chicken soup in dog is not as cost effective and not one I would recommend based on personal and other reviews

I e-mailed Solid Gold to ask them about any formula changes that they havent posted on their site, this is their response.

"Thank you for your email. The only change to our cat foods in the last year is that we recently added a bit of potato protein to reduce the ash content. Other than that, we have not made any changes to the dry cat food in a couple years. We recently removed salmon from some of our dry dog foods and replaced it with herring due to the supply shortage of wild caught salmon.



We made some across the board changes in the summer of 2006 I believe. We streamlined the formulas and added some ingredients we thought to be beneficial such as taurine (dog food) and DHA. We also changed the formulas in 2003 when we switched to a new manufacturing plant.



We don’t particularly like changing the formulas on our products. We will slightly change the formula if we think it will be very beneficial, for instance in the case of adding taurine and DHA or if it’s necessary due to supply problems such as in the case of salmon.



Best regards,

Solid Gold"
