    Hi all! I’m new here and I’m from Portugal.

    I have a bullmastiff with 28 months and a dogo argentino with 11 years and a half.
    The BM is eating Bento Kronen, regular Maxi or Mega (Versela Laga).
    I would like to know if this is a good dry dog food, because I didn’t find anything about this brand.
    Can you give a hand, please? 🙂

    Thank you all!

    I’ve never heard of it before, so it may not be available here. Can you list the ingredients and the guaranteed analysis?

    Without knowing the labeling laws there, I would say this food doesn’t have very much meat, but has a LOT of wheat and rice. Here animal fat is considered a bad ingredient and I don’t like feeding hydrolysed ingredients, but other than that the ingredients look pretty good. If I wanted to feed this food, I would add meat to the diet to bring the protein up.

    Hi Pattyvaughn!

    Thanks! In Portugal I have a real problem about dog food, there aren’t too much brands on the market and the really good ones are too (TOO) expensive, compared to prices outside Portugal… (Acana here costs almost 90€ for 12kg…) I tried Taste of The Wild, but he made a food allergie to the protein…
    I was thinking to change for Diamond Nutra Professional, but the reviews aren’t that good…
    What do you recomend? Maintain Bento Kronen and add some meat (-raw or cooked- chicken, turkey or beef??) or change to Diamond Nutra Professional?

    Thank you for your patiente and for all your advices!!
