If they only have the regular Eagle Pack and not the holistic formula DO NOT BUY IT. The regular Eagle Pack has corn in it which is no good.
Personally I think the Blue Buffalo looks better because it has deboned lamb AND lamb meal in it (as the first two ingredients in fact), not just lamb meal, and it also has a good amount of fish products which are great for the coat and the skin. It also doesn't have any dried beet pulp (useless filler) and looks a little bit better in general.
That's just my take on it. Different people read the labels differently, though, as far as what's important and what isn't, but definitely don't do regular Eagle Pack, or anything with corn (of any sort) in it.
Also beware, even within the same brand, different formulas (chicken vs. lamb) can have significantly different ingredients, not just a change of the meat used. So just keep your eyes open
And if you're ever curious about raw that's a good way to go that can be much cheaper than buying bags of kibble if you can find a good supplier. My friend once fed her two adult Rotties for 3 months on $90!! Can't beat that
