What brand do you feed your dogs?

Postby Copper mushroom » Fri Nov 01, 2013 11:18 am

First lab pup, vet recommended Nutro Natural Choice or Ultra. I realize this is a subjective question but what are you guys feeding your dogs? Sturm is 9 weeks currently and I want to do this right starting with his food.

Thanks in advance

Pro Plan Performance or whatever they're calling their 30/20 now.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

Black Gold Premium Dog Food specifically the salmon and white potato. It's a 32% protein 18% fat mix. the dogs coats are extremely healthy and they're health/energy during long day in day out hunts is amazing.

We feed our dogs Blue Buffalo large breed. Any cheap stuff causes our Doberman to break out in hives and my lab gets really flakey skin around his eyes. This stuff is kinda spendy but man their coats shine. We get compliments all the time about how good they look.

I use Fromm Classic. Was having lots of issues with my lab losing his hair. Switched to Fromms and it has gotten much better.

Science diet, heathy mobility... She had hip spasms and couldn't walk up stairs, vet recommended it, (10 years old) she now goes like she is a puppy..

Diamond large breed. My lab had a flaky coat with pro plan but that seems to be a favorite around here too. I really like the Diamond.

Your vet suggests this because they make money on it...it's complete junk, for what you pay for science diet you could feed sonething much higher quality...it's not as good as vets say it is but a little money in their pockets make their opinion change...

After feeding Pro Plan Performance for almost 20 yrs I recently switched to Loyall Pro 31/20. I don't think PPP is as good as it used to be and they have priced their self right out of my kennel. Dogs are doing great on the Loyall and stools are a lot better than PPP.
