    Fromm is an excellent food and no recalls!

    Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.

    So much smarter to choose differently than hope your dog is not the next victim.
    Well, it definitely beats having to buy grocery store brand foods like Purina, Pedigree, Kibbles & Bits, etc that are loaded with stuff they don't need and get allergic reactions from. If it were my choice, I would certainly be feeding my dogs the BARF diet and nothing more. I'm very short on money and saw how decent this food was.

    What are other foods out there at low prices that don't relinquish quality besides Diamond? I'd like to be able to get a 40 or 50 lb bag for my money's worth.

    Loki is on Nutro ultra as that's what the rescue was feeding him...and we bought the big $55 bag but now reading this I am thinking we need to change as soon as the bag is gone. This is by at the most confusing thing to me. Trying to find a decent food for him that won't make the household CFO go into a rage may prove to be a challenge...he was not thrilled with the cost of the Nutro as it was.

    Is there a difference between the pro plan chicken and rice verses the lamb and rice? Or are they pretty much equal?

    I've narrowed it down to Wellness Core, Fromm, Dr Tims, Orijen, Acana, and Brothers Complete. There are others too, of course. Dr. Tim's is next for me!

    Chicken is very digestible and I would stick to that if possible. If you have a problem with chicken, then you can try other protein sources (lamb, buffalo, fish).

    Thank you...was wondering because I saw both when I looked online but the lamb was a bit cheaper so I wondered if there was a difference.

    I'm already familiar with Wellness, Fromm, Orijen and Acana but have never heard of the others.. they are really expensive! I can't see having to spend $50 on a small bag of dog food, there's just no way. I can only really see paying for something that is within the $30-$40 range for a bigger bag of food.

    I completely agree. The reason I am hoping Dr Tims works out is because the Kenesis $42 for a 30lb bag online. I know a high % of their protein is animal sourced, and that's really what I'm looking for.
