    DefaultLife's Abundance food: Opinions?

    Does anyone on here feed their dogs Life's Abundance? Dry, canned, or both?

    That is what Chief has been on and was doing quite well on it, exclusively, until recently. I have a thread going in the health section about his vomiting.

    Thanks for the insights you have to share!
    Blessings from Cara and Chief!

    The ingredients look fine - but I never heard of this food before and don't know anyone who feeds it. Their distribution system looks a lot like a pyramid scheme to me.

    I'm not a fan of these types of foods. It is not fed to actual, real dogs during testing. It's determined in a laboratory that the ingredients meet the necessary levels and therefore it must be good, right? I want a food fed to real dogs. This is one of the many reasons why I only feed ProPlan and require my puppy buyers to do the same. These "new" dog food companies don't know what they are doing.

    If that were my dog, they'd be off this food pretty quickly and put on something that has been around for awhile, proven and had actual feeding trials done during the testing phase.

    ProPlan is from Purina, right?

    I believe we will be taking Chief off this food (Life's Abundance), at the very least, the dry variety of it. I am currently researching different brands of dry food to try and am also contemplating doing a home cooked diet for him. Not sure yet if we are going to take the leap and do completely home cooked meals, or supplement the home cooked meals with canned, or what.
