    DefaultAnyone feed Organix?

    Speaking with the trainer at Petsmart the other day, this is what she feeds/recommends. I want to switch Jack to a great food and am thinking of going with this. Just curious if anyone else feeds it and what they think?

    On Dog Food Advisor it receives 5 stars.

    I hadn't heard of Organix before so I googled it. Made by Castor & Pollux, C&P had a recall (feline product) a few years ago, voluntary recall, but still. And recently C&P were acquired by Merrick, who also have a history of recalls.

    It's more than just rating the food itself, and while it gets 5 stars from Dog Food Advisor and the ingredients seem to be okay, the percentage of Carbs is awfully high IMO.

    Personally, I wouldn't take the advice of a Petsmart trainer of what food to feed my dog, perhaps get some suggestions, but definitely do your own research. Check for quality of ingredients, a decent protein:fat:carb ratio, research for recalls, ensure you know what company manufactures the product so you can research them for recalls as well.

    I wouldn't feed ANYTHING made by Merrick. Horrible record for recalls.

    A Petsmart trainer is not an authority on anything really and it would not surprise me at all if the associates at Petsmart were incentivized to promote certain products. Please don't assume you are getting unbiased expert opinion from staff at chains.
