    DefaultLet's talk kibble

    I have been doing a lot of research on different kibble, and read some very disturbing things about Nutro.. I originally had Peyton on Nutro Max Large Breed Puppy, and I blamed her diarrhea on the stress of coming to a new home and possibly shots/deworming. Today, she ate Bil Jac Large Breed Puppy and didn't even have diarrhea after eating 3 meals of it without combining any Nutro.

    Has anyone else had that kind of experience with that brand? I've also read the same manufacturer makes Royal Canine.

    I would never feed Nutro.
    I feed Fromm and Earthborn Holistics.

    Unfortunately, those two brands aren't sold in the store near my house. I picked what I thought was best at the time and it turns out it wasn't.

    We switched our dog, Scout, to Wellness CORE Oceanfish due to a food allergy, and not only did her stool firm up, but she stopped eating her own stools (a never-ending habit before) immediately! She hasn't touched them in 8 months.

    I feed NOW which is made in Canada. It is about the only dog food that has never had a recall. I do feed senior to my two and stools have been firm.

    If you want a good food that's not hard to find (not one of the premium brands) but hasn't had any recalls (Nutro has had them)...Look at Pro Plan. Sport 26/16 is a good one for normal active dogs.

    I wouldn't feed Nutro if given to me for free. They used to be a good brand and I used to feed it, but then they changed their formulas and lied to me about it. Since then I've heard some very disturbing things about this food.

    Can you get ProPlan or Royal Canin?
