Hey, I feed my pom merrick canned food and I was wondering if it is good for pit bulls and if any of you have your pits on it. I like that there are differnt flavors and it is all natural.

Now I have had my late pit on Solid Gold and she seemed to do good on it. They have this food called Millennia and it's supposed to have a higher calorie for athletic dogs that have problems keeping weight on.

What in your opinions is the best food for pit bulls?

I'm guessing something with high protein, but which?

I'm totally biased for Timberwolf and think it's the best food for any breed of dog, given that your dog doesn't have allergies to the ingredients. :) My dogs do extremely well on it, especially Remy, whose coat absolutely shines on it. Bella's does, too, but Remy has a little bit longer fur and he's always sooooo soft.

I may eventually switch to half Timberwolf/half raw feeding, though.

I've heard good things about Timberwolf too..
If I remember, were they the one's that had a bunch of different kinds?
I think I was confused as to which to purchase.
I will definately check them out though, thanks!

Yeah, Timberwolf has several different varieties: Elk and Salmon, Bison, Lamb and Apples, Lamb and Venison, Whitefish, Chicken. I think there are more, but I'm drawing a blank. :) My two are on Elk and Salmon.

Does it matter what kind they are on (like does each kind have a different purpose)?
Or are they just different flavors?

The purpose is generally the same for most of the varieties, although some varieties have more protein than others. I believe the Lamb and Apples formula is the most nutrient dense and is recommended for puppies or pregnant and lactating b*tches. A lot of people who feed Timberwolf rotate among all of the varieties if their dogs don't have allergies to any of the proteins.

Do they sell just dry food or is there a canned version also?
I prefer to mix wet and dry food.

If there is no canned, I could just mix the dry timberwolf with Solid Gold Green Cow (stinky as hell but good)
and the SeaMeal supplement (both of which I swear by).

I like the way Merrick looks, you can see every ingredient like you would stew.
Spot's stew is also good.

The wing-a-ling and smothered comfort flavors both have chicken with the bone and all (wing-a-ling is full chicken wings and smothered comfort is the thighs). The bones are so soft, you can cut them with a spoon!

I mix Chicken Soup for the Soul and Merrick's Gammy's Pot Pie. And as wierd as it might sound, I have passed the "tempted" stage. The stuff looks so tasty I just had to try it--a really, really small taste; tastes like real pot pie, needs a little salt though.

I have been very happy since switching to Timberwolf. I rotate among a few of their recipes. I have a EB and they tend to have dry skin. The timberwolf works beautifully. I add wild salmon oil and timberwolf Wild Elements. I believe, also, it is the best food on the market. I Mix it with Nature's Variety Raw Frozen foods. Yogurt and "Heart Healthy" OJ in AM

I'd also like to add that there is no gas problems whatsoever.

Spot's Stew is a dogfood that looks like stew and there are claims of people eating it.
In fact, the founder was on TV eating it.
I would never..
LOL
The weirdest I have done was to lick a rawhide to make sure it tasted like something.
Gross, I know..
:p
It's just alot of rawhides on the market don't interest my dog, they probably don't taste like anything.
