Quality dog food recommendations
We have largely used Science Diet dog food over the years, but the price is higher than what I feel like the quality the dogs are getting.
I do need to keep the price down, since we are constantly fostering a number of dogs. We go through a lot of dog food for the pups.
Any good suggestions?

I feed mine a combo of
Chewy link and roasted chickens from the deli, unflavored. I usually get 3 or 4 when they go onsale. 1 chicken usually lasts my 100# Catahoula and a 5# shit-zoo about 2 weeks. It comes out much cheaper than those prepackaged raw foods.

re: Quality dog food recommendations
Just switched my guy from high-end, grain-free dog food to Purina Pro Plan. He loves it, it’s reasonably priced and there are many flavors to rotate.

My vet cautioned me regarding grain free diets for dogs that include peas and legumes, as there may be a link to those ingredients and cardiomyopathy.

What breed? What size dog? Any allergies or other maladies?

We’ve got a couple of FBDs on Iams lamb and rice for skin allergies. The other 5 mutts eat Purina Dog Chow. Scoff all you want, but every dog I’ve had on dog chow lived to 13YO minimum and never had a health problem.

Diamond grain free with fish as the protein(the blue bag). My dog has really bad GI issues until I switched to this and it's been night and day. I order off Amazon

Blue Buffalo was recommended to me and I've been using it for a while now. My dog seems to love it.

re: Quality dog food recommendations
Guys please beware using grain-free dog food. I used it for awhile too because my dog had some skin issues I thought could be related to grain sensitivity. There have been a LOT of dog deaths from cardiomyopathy in recent years==young and seemingly healthy dogs. The common denominator was they ate grain-free dog food---ALL brands...there is a lot of research going on about it. It is not the absence of grain that is a problem. It is believed that the amount of legumes (peas lentils etc) that are substituted in these foods is causing the problem. Google it--there's tons of info. My vet asked me to take my dog off grain-free immediately until they figure out the problem.

My vet called Blue Buffalo “poison in a bag”

I think she was being a bit dramatic, but a friend of mine just had two dogs get pancreatitis that was traced back to Blue Buffalo dog food.

You'll want about about a 3:1 mix of Purina and Ol' Roy for optimal performance.

Simply Nourish. Overall a great dog food and the cost is around $45 - $60 for the 30lb bag.
