Just wondering if anyone has used the Diamonds Natural food, looking at the All life stages or the Extreme Athlete brand. I currently use the Simply Nourish for our dog, she tends to get stomach upset on a lot of foods and she tolerates this one pretty well. Looking for a food I can switch her over to and put our new puppy on as well.
Any other brands recommended that won't break the bank for us
Didn't Diamond have a major recall of many foods less than a year ago?

Diamond has had numerous recalls and seems to have serious quality control problems. Not a food I would ever choose.

I was having problems last week with Mya. I had just barely started switching her over to the Diamonds 60+ (I had TOTALLY forgot about the problems with their recalls). I had just started my second phase of switching by going to 1 part new food to 5 part old food. I thought there was no way it could be the Diamond food, but it was. Mya has been on IAMs since a pup and that is what she shall remain on.
That is my experience with Diamond. I hope you are able to find one that fits your dogs.
Like Mary Jane, I had started to include DN Extreme Athlete into my dog's diet, litterally just a few kibbles. Not really sure if it was the kibble or if Journey got into something else (she is a destructo dog, and will get into stuff if she can, so I tend to be vigilant about what she has access to), but she was one sick dog for a couple days. Uncontrollable diarhhea, and throwing up. No one else had a reaction. The rescue shepherds at the kennel I work at (about 17 right now), are mostly on that DN food and seem to be doing well on it.
I'll stick to Taste of the Wild and Grandma Lucy's!

Wow, some scary stuff. I was also considering the Canidae food. So hard to tell what to give to them, our 4 year old LOVES the Simply Nourish food, but putting two labs on it will
be quite costly so I was looking for an alternative. Having said that, the breeder has the dogs on Kirkland food and has had no problems whatsoever even during the recall. There seems to be so many dog foods recalled, even expensive ones, hard to know what to do
But isn't Kirkland made by Diamond?
oops, op appears to know that. Sorry, must finish coffee before reading and posting.
never a product by diamond.
