    DefaultPro Plan

    I started feeding Parker Pro Plan and my other dogs seem to like it better than their old food. I thought they sold it at Sam's but they don't. Is there somewhere I can get it in a large size at a reasonable price, or is there a decent alternative that I can get at Sam's or Costco. Thanks.

    Alot of posters have mentioned Kirkland brand at Costco as a good food. I don't know anything about this food but it does get recommendations. Good luck with your food quest!

    I'm confused a bit... do your dogs not eat just about anything? Violet eats anything remotely resembling a foodstuff. Anyway...

    Label-wise, Kirkland is pretty good stuff. It's a little under $20 for a 40 pound bag, and it's fairly high calorie stuff. Violet's done fairly well on it (I think) for the last year and a half, but I just decided we're going to try a snobby holistic brand for a while just to see if it's any better. And I am FAAR from being a doggie nutrition expert, but I don't think corn in dog food is supposed to be a good thing. Kirkland CR has no corn or wheat. And what is "animal digest" in ProPlan?? I don't love that they won't commit to what animal that is. Doesn't take the imagination long to take that to some icky places...

    ProPlan Chicken and Rice:
    Chicken, brewers rice, whole grain wheat, poultry by-product meal (natural source of glucosamine), corn gluten meal, whole grain corn, animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of Vitamin E), corn bran, fish meal (natural source of glucosamine), animal digest, dried egg product, calcium phosphate, salt, potassium chloride, calcium carbonate, Vitamin E supplement, choline chloride, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), manganese sulfate, niacin, Vitamin A supplement, calcium pantothenate, thiamine mononitrate, copper sulfate, riboflavin supplement, Vitamin B-12 supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, garlic oil, folic acid, Vitamin D-3 supplement, calcium iodate, biotin, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of Vitamin K activity), sodium selenite.

    Kirkland Chicken and Rice:
    chicken, chicken meal, whole grain brown rice, cracked pearled barley, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and vitamin e), egg product, beet pulp, potatoes, fish meal, flaxseed, natural flavor, brewers dried yeast, millet, carrots, peas, kelp, apples, dried skim mild, cranberry powder, potassium shloride, salt, sholine chloride, rosemary extract, parsley flake, dried chicory root, glucosamine hydrochloride, vitamin E supplement, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, chondroitin sulfate, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, calcium pantothanate, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vit. B6), vitamin B12 supplement, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of vitamin K activity), riboflavin, vitamin D supplement, folic acid.

    Out of the two, I'd go with the Kirkland (that you can get at Costco/Sam's)

    Tractor Supply Company carries the regular Pro Plan (not the Selects).

    If you shop Costco, can't beat Kirkland C&R, if it works for your dog. It does for mine! ;D

    We feed Kirkland C&R (available ONLY at Costco -- "Kirkland" is the house name for Costco's brands just as "Kenmore" and "Craftsman" is for Sears).

    In Kansas, a 40 lb. bag is $20.10, tax included.

    Puff eats only 2 cups a day so a bag lasts us a long time. When I open a new bag, I immediately transfer its contents in to 10-11 one gallon Ziplock freezer bags and seal them until needed.

    "Diamond Naturals" is made by the same company that makes Kirkland for Costco and has very similar ingredients as the Kirkland. (Plain "Diamond" is different; it has corn and other fillers in it.) "Diamond Naturals" is available at many Tractor Supply Company stores and others. Here's a store locator link:

    Puff [YF, AKC field line (from competing HT/FT breeder) 62 lbs, dob: 8-'01]

    Bess [BF, AKC bench line (from competing show breeder) 55 lbs., 1967-1981] "Poor Bess, the Wonder Dog":

    Sometimes you can find coupons, too.
