    RC costs upwards of 90$ for 40 Lbs and so does eukanuba!!

    fat and protein looks okay it's the corn as the second ingredient that is not looking good...followed by rice flour. Do you have any other options in India?

    Options are there but they are really expensive. Eukanuba retails for close to 95$ for a 40 Lb bag . We give our German shepards royal canine formula 24 which costs us close to 80$ a bag. As far as other options are concerned the government banned Most products for 6 months following bird flu and pro pac seems to be the only one readily available in the market. Pluto is doing great on it interms of growth etc However I only want to know wether the large breed puppy is ok for him or should i go in for performance puppy which has upto 40% protien. I had him on performance puppy for the first month however he was growing too fast so i switched to the large breed puppy which has lprotiens upto 26%.

    40% protein would be way to much for a pup. Like I said, this seems okay...and of course you need to be conscience of budgets so as long as your pup is doing well on it, stick withit.
