    Default What brand of food do you feed your dog?

    Bailey has been on pro plan since the breeder started her on it, but I was doing some research and noticed that maybe pro plan isn't what I want her to be on. I like Wellness and Blue Buffalo. Blue Buffalo's ingredient list has tons of natural fruit, vegetables and no meat by products which I noticed pro plan does have. I asked the vet what they thought about me switching her onto Blue Buffalo and they said Pro Plan is a great food. I'm not saying it isn't but when I compared the ingredients to pro plan and blue buffalo side by side blue buffalo came out on top with no comparison. What do you think? What do you feed your dogs?

    Why Pro plan, of course Just be careful with those foods for the sole reason that the veggies might be hard for them to digest right now. Wellness is a "strong" food even the puppy formula. I may switch to Wellness - one reason is that the store up the street carries it (and I do believe it's a better food) but if I've ever given Spike a little bit of canned as a mix-in the carrots come out in the same form they went in. On a side note - He had a few blueberries yesterday - kept him busy for a little bit

    Gracie and Lola are on Pinnacle Holistic Chicken and Oat. Is Bailey doing good on the pro plan, no problems??? If so why change? Gracie and Lola do not do well on Wellness at all, I think it may be to rich for them, they get really loose stools on it. I likes Wellness years ago, when I had my first lab Casey, but then they change formula's...not sure if another company owns them now, but I didn't like the fact that they were always changing the food...just my opinion though.

    Mine has been on Wellness (large breed puppy formula) for quite a while and has done very well on it. I'm figuring I'll keep him on it for another couple months before switching him again. I'm looking at possible Orijen or TOTW at that time.

    Yeah ill be careful. Did spike play with the blueberry for a half hour before he ate it? Lol. Bailey loves playing with them before she eats it. Yeah wellness is good too. If you switch when do you think you will?

    She is doing well, but I would like to change because when comparing pro plan to blue buffalo or wellness pro plan doesn't do well. There is by product in pro plan which I really don't like. Plus blue buffalo has so many more healthy ingredients than pro plan. I just want my dog on a really healthy food
