After hearing about all the cases of diet related Cardiac problems in dogs, I decided to go with a dog food that has no legumes, peas or white potatoes in the first 6 ingredients. This was much harder than I thought. Most dog foods contain one or more of these ingredients and pretty much every "grain - free" diet contains peas.
I switched our crew to a few different varieties of Victor brand dog food. Not every single dog in our house is on the same food. For puppies and pregnant moms, I like the food to have higher protein and fat content. For the active adults, they get a decent amount of protein and medium fat. For the "mature" folks they get lower protein and fat kibble.
Victor had been great for the last year until the company decided to change their formulas....So here I am, looking at dog foods again.
After looking at all the options, including how many times a food has been recalled, I've settled on using Purina Pro Plan. I have a few different varieties in use here.
For our adult Active dogs, they get Pro Plan Savor Adult Lamb and Rice
For puppies and Moms, they get Pro Plan Performance Salmon and Rice 30/20
For our Mature folks who have sensitive skin and tummies, Pro Plan Focus Salmon & Rice
