Yes, the Tractor Supply does have lots of choices
I also went to a local Feed and Seed, they have the Diamond Mantanance formula, 50 lbs for $20

Im sure this has been beaten to death - but can someone recommend a high quality puppy food that is reasonably priced? Im not sure what Annie's breeder will ween her to (waiting to hear back from him) but I want to have something else in mind in case it's not something great.

Thanks!

Its a little sad really but you know there isnt a single food in Argentina that has two good meat sources, or a single food which list a pure meat source, ie Chicken as opposed to Chicken meal, aside from Eukanuba which comes with so much other terrible fillers its even worse.

Ironically the food I have Vital Can is one of the cheapest VET ONLY brands (not a supermarket sold brand) and yet it appears to be one of the best. Sure it only has Chicken Meal as its primary ingredient and it does have Meat Meal which isnt great, but it has all natural preservatives and very little chemicals unlike the others. The Royal Canin here comes with BHA and BHT included so im off that idea.

The only one close is a brand called Sieger which has Fish Meal as opposed to Meat meal. Sad really, id happily pay more for a better food for the dogs but there just isnt one to be had at all.

Not even brands like Innova nad Nutrience are here :(

Ive scoured the ingredients of every brand I can find here and they are all crap, most have sub products and by products or list grains and corns as their primary ingredient. At least mine has two meat source meals, although meat meal isnt ideal, chicken meal is fine.

Frustrating really, but I suppose thats how it goes.

I saw your other post, and thought I'd answer here. Most puppy food contain a higher protein content than adult foods. A puppy needs more protein to help grow, however I wouldn't feed puppy food. I would feed adult food, and just up the amount of food the dog eats. For example, Justice is 7 months old and 35 lbs. It is recommended that we feed her only 2 to 2.5 cups of food a day. She gets 3 to 3.5 depending on her activity level. She's a very hyper pup with a lot of energy and a high metabolism. Haus is lazier than she is, and he gets his recommended feeding at 4 cups a day(of course, he's an adult dog). I would urge you to talk to your vet about this. If you don't trust your vet's knowledge of dog nutrition, then find a dog nutrionist to speak to.

Timberwolf?

I've never seen timberwolf before.

We'd been feeding Iams since thats what I always thought was the best (Boy was I wrong!). Red was allergic to the chicken protein in it, so we switched to Solid Gold Wolfcub and haven't looked back since.

Is the Timberwolf significantly better for the money? Seems to have rated the highest.

We're also using the Solid Gold Seameal suppliments in his food which he doesn't seem to mind at all.

Chicken Meal is fine... it's a misconception that people have.
As long as it's not chicken BY-PRODUCTS your pooch is safe.

California Natural scores an A , and the top ingredient is Chicken Meal.

A lot of the A grade foods have chicken meal or lamb meal....

I'm a huge advocate of Timberwolf. There is no better kibble on the market, in my opinion. Of course, not all dogs will do as well as others on it. It really comes down to finding what works best for your dog.

Try DVP brands.. Very High grade and its for all life stages, pup to senior. I use it for my baby bull and my old lab and they love it.. and also try DVP meat rolls for your pup.. Meatroll in DVP dry and the bowl will be licked clean every time..

I tried scoring this Dog food and came up with 114 as the score could one of you take a look and see what you get for a score? I need to change our dogs food, they used to be on Canidae but since we moved 6 months ago I can't find it in this area and I have been using DVP Natural Balance Utlra and my dogs have been having soft poos ever since I changed (my hubby calls them the yard flap jacks! LOL!) So I am in need of a good food from either Petco or Petsmart which is what is near by....

Castor & Pollux Natural Ultramix Adult Canine

Superior Protein Sources
Natural chicken is #1 on our ingredients list with five additional highly bioavailable proteins for optimal digestibility and great taste. Provides essential amino acids and the nutrients needed to help promote your dog's wellness by supporting a healthy skin and coat, strong, lean muscle mass and vitality.
Natural Fruits & Veggies
Pure, wholesome fruits and vegetables provide valuable nutrients, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants for your dog. We simply dry the carrots, bananas, papaya, apples and blueberries and then blend with the Ultramix kibble. Don't be fooled by other diets that feature fruits and veggies in the ingredients list - you can't even see them in the kibble! And because they're usually processed under high heat they retain only minimal nutritional value...not so with NATURAL ULTRAMIX!

I'm feeding Sassy Diamond "Natural" Large Breed puppy Lamb & Rice; according to my calculations I come up with 105. Does anybody else use this food and have theydone the math ? I'm curious if they get the same number. There are some Diamond scores early in this thread, but they don't say it's the natural large breed puppy.

She's very healthy (REGULAR NORMAL POOPS TOO) so I don't see switching to something until she goes on adult food. Very reasonably priced.

It's certainly better than a lot of the foods out there. The Diamond foods (or any food for that matter) to stay away from are the ones with corn in it. 105 seems a bit high though, but if your dog is doing good on it I wouldn't bother changing it. I wouldn't worry about scoring it either.

Atticus gets prescription K/O dog food, I think Eukanuba is the brand...not sure, but it's prescription from the vet, b/c it contains no wheat in it. 67 dollars for a 30 pound bag. We also mix in Blue Buff wet food.

I would cut out the vet food.... there are many more good foods out there without wheat in them that are MUCH cheaper.

If you look here at DVP Natural Balance Potato and Duck there is no wheat:
Potatoes, Duck, Duck Meal, Canola Oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Potato Fiber, DL-methionine, L-Lysine, Sodium Chloride, Salmon Oil, Flaxseed Oil, Rosemary Extract, Natural Flavor, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Potassium Chloride, Choline Chloride, Vitamin E Supplement, Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Potassium Iodide, Thiamine Mononitrate, Manganese Proteinate, Zinc Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin A Supplement, Biotin, Calcium Pantothenate, Manganese Sulfate, Sodium Selenite, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B-6), Vitamin B-12 Supplement, Vitamin K1 Supplement, Riboflavin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid (Vitamin B-9).


I pay $40ish for 30lbs and I can get it at Petco and its better then Eukanuba products

I would check the protien content of it. You do not want to overload a puppy with protien. If it is not too high, then it should be okay to feed a puppy. Many people never feed their puppy a "puppy food"
